Re: Other Teams' Stuff

Ligue un is fucked too due to the collapse of their massive TV rights deal. Amazon bought up the rights when they went to auction but for a massively reduced fee leaving ligue un clubs with a minimum 400m loss of revenue from one season alone. It stands to be bigger. Wow. The Prem has the pick of th...

Due to their massive debts, the salary cap and other factors they have a wage bill comparable to that of Everton to spend

Re: Maguire

What is Varane's 'French temperament' and how did it plague Arsenal? Was it the same one that won them the world cup, Dozer? The same 'French temperament' that the Arsenal side of the 'Wenger era' had, which made them one of the best teams in the world for a while? Could it be the same as the 'Fren...

Re: Maguire

He did have a good tournament. I do think Maguire and Varane could be a strong combination. Hopefully good enough that Ole won’t feel the need to usually play 2 DMs in front of them. Problem is Varane will bring his French temperament which plagued arsenal. What if he's not in the right mood on mat...

Re: is rashford gonna make it then

All he got out of the euros was more racial abuse. A two month rest will do him good. He's been used and abused by Ole. Apparently his back won't ever be right after he fractured it and they made him keep playing. He could do with being out of the spotlight for a bit too after being targeted by the ...

If I have to choose between prawn sandwiches and racist thuggery, then I’ll take the prawn sandwiches.
I'm really struggling to see the link between jibbing which has gone on for 30 odd years, and racism. I think perhaps it's because I'm not a comfortable liberal.

Re: Euros 2021

Imagine taking your kid(s) to Wembley and being swamped by ticketless fans rushing through the turnstiles. There was a video on Twitter of some Asian guy having the shit kicked out of him on the concourse. How is this acceptable? I can't do the mental gymnastics necessary to link not paying for tic...
