Hardly the worst transfer ever and I don't see how you can be sure he won't return to some form and be a useful player for them given his pedigree. Having a bad season but then most of their big players are.
I think Arteta is a bit 'clever...
That work on transfers doesn't seem bad actually. Partey is a class player, Gabriel is good, Mari looks good too IMO, Cedric is better than Bellerin these days and Odegaard was clearly a good move. So maybe he does need time but some of his...
So who plays on the right there - Grealish? Rashford? or does Rice sit and let the full backs attack, with Grealish in a free role and Rashford and Kane attacking?

Shaw is clearly...
Maybe it should have been a penalty but it was a nothing incident really, hate to see penalties from those kinds of things. When it happened, like seemingly everyone else I thought it came off Greenwood's hand, accidentally. Not the kind of thing...
