    Eagerly awaiting Gate's rebuttal to this. I agree with everything here, Arsenal looked completely toothless against Leicester - and that's a game you should be winning comfortably as a top-4 team.

  • I am still seething over Newcastle's deadline day.

    While the departure of Hatem Ben Arfa was inevitable due to him reportedly squaring up to Pardew, not losing weight and also not tracking back, I am very disappointed that we did not get any money for him. (His contract expires next year). I genuinely hope he thrives at Hull, and proves Pardew wrong for letting him go. Ben Arfa is a Champions League caliber player when fit.

    We failed to bring in another striker, which was stupid, but even more stupid was the lack of a center-back arrival. I appreciate that we could still loan a player in, but center-back is the weakest area of the team. Colo looks well past his best.

    So, imagine my anger when it was announced that despite managing to secure a replacement Yanga-Mbiwa had signed on loan with Roma. This leaves us with 3 CBs in the entire squad, and one of these center-backs is a terrible excuse for a footballer--Steven Taylor.

    To make matters worse, Yanga-Mbiwa is available to Roma for 6million euros. We paid £8.5million for this Ligue 1 winner, who won the French title while captaining Montpellier. This is a player who was forced to play rb instead of his natural cb position for nearly every game he appeared for us.

    Still, it isn't a bad thing for MYM. He goes from playing next to Massadio Haidara in a mediocre Premier league team to playing next to Ashley Cole in the Champions League. Awful business from Newcastle, and Obertan and Saylor still remain.

    They wanted £16million, we don't pay that sort of money sadly--and sensibly

  • And by loan window, I meant emergency loan window. Or does that only apply to Football League Clubs?

    As for us... well, i love the 4-diamond-2 with Balo, and love how Sterling is underneath them. By the retun from international break we should have Lallana out on one end, Henderson on the other, Gerrard underneath with Marko, Cou and Allen on the bench.



    No doubt SAF F'd up by not being able to retain Pogba. We developed the hell out of him but never gave him first team minutes and then he left on a free i believe. Should have played him more, and tried like hell to sign him.

    Eagerly awaiting Gate's rebuttal to this. I agree with everything here, Arsenal looked completely toothless against Leicester - and that's a game you should be winning comfortably as a top-4 team.





    we was tootless..once we passed the halfway line we lacked confidence and devoid of ideas..in defence we still play zonal marking at set pieces..i also agree with you..if we want to be a top team we must win these games..and i still can not beleve wenger was in rome playing a referee..would pete carroll be doing the same on nfl draft day..no he wont.
    all other managers shop at macy or neiman marcus..wenger goes to the doller store and hope he can find a gem.
    and consider this..we pay for the most expencive tickets in the epl and wenger is on 8 million a year.

    Well, last season, I said if Wenger doesn't win a trophy, he's out. Well, they won the FA cup, and that's still a pretty significant piece of silverware. Is it enough to satisfy the fans into another few years of finishing 4th and not winning trophies?
