Last Man Standing finalist 2019/20
- Jan 12, 2019
Don’t think you’re able to do so without CL from what I’ve readwe'll spend a considerable amount again. 200m ish
Dyche is prehistoric. Set piece football only gets you to a certain level.Dyche is too good. To think Everton were going to let that serial loser Bielsa come and play with their U21s and watch them get relegated
Really? He was working with a shoestring budget at Burnley. He's earned a shot at a club with more ambition and resources.Dyche is prehistoric. Set piece football only gets you to a certain level.
That sounds about right to me.The fee involved and wages was something like £16m (With no option to buy).
Both United and Arsenal weren’t interested at that price.
The difference between finishing 1st and 4th in the PL is £6.6m. So unless we drop out of the CL getting Felix over Weghorst wouldn't make sense financially given the difference in cost between signing the two players.That sounds about right to me.
Depending on what one believes we were capable of accomplishing with Felix, it may well have been worth the price to borrow him from Atletico. We've dropped some stupid points since January 1 in the PL, including to Palace (1-1), Arsenal (3-2), Leeds (2-2) and Southampton (0-0). I will disregard the thrashing by Liverpool as not even Messi at his peak could have prevented the thrashing on that abysmal day.
We can't assume Felix would have scored a goal in every one of those matches, but I don't think it would be a stretch to assume he would have scored a goal in two of those matches against what most of us regard as mediocre opponents. That's not provable for sure, but it is demonstrably the case that Felix brings a lot more to the attack than Wout does. Say two of those draws were instead wins, adding 4 hour points to our current tally. Where I'm going with this is that had we had a proper 9 -- fine, Felix is not a proper 9 but he's more of one than Wout is -- we might still be in the hunt for a PL trophy, which we're definitely out of now.
But then again, perhaps ETH actually believed Martial would be fit again and that Wout would be cover, not a de facto regular starter, which Wout has become. If he believed Martial would return to duty and not his gurney for months at a time, then of course it would be hard to justify a huge outlay for Felix just to rot on the bench.
Oh well, the luck will run out eventually. Probably next seasonthat's the type of luck they are getting this season.....zaha hits the post and it comes back off Ramsdale but out for a corner unlike what happened with Villa and Martinez to win them the game
Agree with this and noticed it in other games too. What helps them is that they move fast after the pull - well and lots breaks from refs!arsenal get away wiht a lot of hand grabbing and pulling on guys
Guess it depends whether you ask EtH or ArtetaHow have Arsenals season been with regards to injuries?
Jesus out for a long stretch and Partey for periods as well? I think that’s it in terms of their key players. Smith-Rowe and Tierney also out most of the time it seems.How have Arsenals season been with regards to injuries?
I know Jesus' been missing
The sequel.Would love if Arsenal dropped points here, c'mon Paddy McCarthy, have your Hollywood movie debut
Macheda’s goal was one of the most dramatic goals I’ve ever seen. The only two goals I would put ahead of that were Ole CL final and Giggs FA cup semi final.Macheda's goal was matchday 31, that Bournemouth game for Arsenal was matchday 26. Put some respect on Macheda's moment.
