  1. Nicolas Pépé

    Robert Pires was pants for 6 months when he came. He ended up being one of our best players this century so far. Thierry Henry and Dennis Bergkamp took some time to adjust too. Pepe might be a flop, but he might not, it's still relatively early.
  2. Neil Warnock’s Top Five Premier League Managers of All Time

    To be fair I believe this followed a conversation on influence. Very, very, very few people will argue against Ferguson being the best manager we've seen on these shores. He won trophy after trophy consistently over 2 entire decades. I don't think many will even try to debate that. I think...
  3. Aguero vs Henry: The Greatest PL #9?

    Henry used to set up almost as many as he scored though. What do Cristiano's assist stats look like? Henry did 5 years in a row of scoring 30+ goals (in all comps) and would often supplement that with around 20 assists.
  4. Harry Kane MBE | Performances | Jan 2020: Torn hamstring, won't return to training until April

    It really doesn't. I clicked on this thread, saw the post with the tweet and clicked on it. If the poll was still active thevwhole process would have taken less than 12 seconds....
  5. The relative strength of the Premier League

    Indeed. My point was that it's not crazy to call the Premier League the best. I'd accept both England and Spain as credible answers.
  6. The relative strength of the Premier League

    The UEFA Coefficient suggests it's 2nd to La Liga (based on all teams' performance in European competition). So calling it no.1 isn't a million miles off the mark.
  7. 2019/20 Rivals - Arsenal

    Wenger had to go, he really did. Just because the club has made a complete pig's ear of his replacement and other aspects of running the club doesn't mean that letting Wenger go was the wrong decision. I feel that ownership these days matters more than - or at least as much as the manager of...
  8. Mike Dean

    For a long time I actually felt that Michael Oliver was our best ref; but his performances in the last season or two have me doubting that. Atkinson for me has been a dreadful ref, but he has surprised me with some decent performances of late. Mike Dean however is consistently awful...
  9. The ugly face of racism in English football

    You're missing his point. His point is that praise for black players appears to be purely based around their physical attributes. So either black players simply aren't that intelligent, or there's an underlying issue that results in them never being recognised for being intelligent. Quick...
  10. Mikel Arteta | Arsenal manager

    I think he's referring particularly to Premier League clubs hiring recent former players. 99% of managers are ex players of some sort, but how many clubs have one of their own ex players in the dugout?
  11. Are Spurs the dirtiest club in the league?

    Maybe I need to see it again (only seen it once), but wasn't it Aurier who caused the injury by going into Gomes without control? Everyone seems to be discussing Son, but I thought it was Aurier's challenge that did the damage...
  12. Granit "The Hacker" Xhaka | Likes his greens

    First of all, there's nothing to suggest that the morons on Twitter and Instagram are the match going fans that booed him so let's deal exclusively with those that were booing. Booing a footballer or football team is an industry standard way of expressing dissatisfaction, so the waiter...
  13. Granit "The Hacker" Xhaka | Likes his greens

    The fans are paying customers that have received a substandard service from an employee of the company they pay a subscription to. If an opposition player did that, then fine (I was fine with Adebayor's celebration for example). But an employee should treat his own customers better. It's...
  14. Liverpool might pull out of Carabao cup

    This is what I wondered regarding Man Utd 20 years ago. They could have drawn Rochdale at home or something like that and sent the kids. Why wasn't that option explored? Could have left the assistant at home to take the team in the FA Cup. Out of interest (I know it didn't end well), was...
  15. 2019/20 Rivals - Arsenal

    This is hilarious coming from a Chelsea fan regarding "tiers". The elite is clearly Real Madrid, Barcelona, Man Utd, Liverpool, Juventus, Bayern. Then you have sleeping giants like AC Milan, Inter, Ajax who are not the forces they were. If you're exclusively talking about the here and now...
