Its like no one wants to win the league.

City....what was that? Klopp got liverpool out there flying. Emre Can out there looking like a boss....Lalana looking fantastic.
I guess no Yaya really was a big deal but that was such a poor showing

All it took was a draw by anyone to gain ground...and Spurs, Arsenal, City all go down....I hope HeggysFC wins the league at this point.

Why do people keep saying this when Leicester are literally on the brink of making history because their want for the title is immense this season?

And this is not meant to take aim at you or anything, but I've seen this comment a few times online.

Leicster and Spurs are putting in work, sure there's some speed bumps, but they're putting in work right now for that title.

I see Arsenal winning Saturday...

Then the Wenger fans who are hiding in the closet, come out, hop back on the bandwagon then proceed to.. - tell us all how brilliant he is and how he deserves the benefit of the doubt, then a quenching level of optimism is swallowed and everyone seems tolerantly at ease, again....

That's the thing about this emotional Arsenal roller coaster, it's been this way for 5 plus years now for some strange reason - a huge portion of the fans act like the oblivious battered women of the world. At the end of the day man, the fans dictate the club, no matter how powerful the owners are. The brass at Arsenal have been kicking the fans for years now.... This time, call 911 (or 999 if you're actually calling from North London laugh.gif)

I agree with Leicester putting in the effort. It was more a reaction to yesterday. The top teams knew they had an opportunity to gain ground with the Leicester draw. Spurs were unlucky with all their chances i guess you could say....but it was swansea. Idk....it was a great opportunity

TBH Even if Arsenal wins the league, I think homie should bounce. His time has passed.


He just doesn't have the juice to run with the changes coming next year. Pep at City, Mou at United, Leicester and Spurs coming back again and giving us more trouble.

We need someone thick skinned, and not afraid to pull out his wallet. We need someone who isn't romanticized with moral victories, and who can't let old players go. Tire's no reason for Arteta, Flamini, Rosicky, etc to still be at the club. They aren't playing and they aren't helpings win. We don't have to drop cats as hard as Madrid, but we also don't have to keep them around when they're obviously dead weight at this point. And, his late game substitutions are horrible. I swear his changes towards the last 10 minutes - extra time always piss me off.



"1 title in 12 years, ***** I can divide... "

But you're one of the biggest teams in europe tho?



Leicester City definitely wants to win the league. I've been done sleeping on them boys since Christmas.

They're going to have to accept the idea that they will need to hand out new deals to pretty much everyone soon.

On the other hand I would also say, I don't understand why Arsenal don't just come and poach every player that Dortmund is scouting laugh.gif cause for some reason they seem to have the formula for finding unknown gems who are CL starter quality on very modest wages (not sure if this can work realistically going forward since agents will know that PL clubs have cash).
We did poach Lester City's scout

and the reason why people are saying no one wants to win the league is because everyone is losing games they SHOULD be winning

There absolutely no reason why we should have lost to Swansea and United

There's no reason why Iwobi should have played over Campbell

There's no reason why Chelsea should be in 10th

Until Neymar has done it on a cold windy rainy Tuesday night at the Brittania, he hasn't done it.

We all know over the past 5 years, 3 things in life are guaranteed, Death, Taxes and the fact that Arsenal will build you up and let you down in the final matches of the season. This is not new, @CoupeIt88 already said it. Hell, we all been saying it for ages. So we can't sit here and talk about who Arsenal should not be losing to at the business end of the season, this is what Arsenal does.

Chelsea, SHOULD be in 10th right now. Again, this is not new. Look at any Mourinho team after his 2nd/3rd season, things go catastrophic. The only reason it looks this bad now, is cause Roman really tried to hold on as long as he could, but Mou is gonna Mou (something even United fans are very well aware of, even while we praise his name waiting for him to arrive).

I think Arsenal should really be looking for value in the Dutch and German leagues.

Also, lettuce discuss this quick...

From rumors we can tell:

Conte - Chelsea
Mourinho- United
Guardiola- Citeh

I'm wondering who would Arsenal fans actually want as their next manager based on availability?
post #25424 of 50776
Carlo's taken as well...

Speaking of managerial changes,reports out of Spain are saying that Flo got rejected by Athletic's coach to take over next season. Looking like this Zizou dream might not last...

Apparently the same guy was Barca's first choice to take over for Tata but he also rejected them...that Basque loyalty is something else eek.gif

That is damn true.

I remember reading about SAF actually running drills for hours on end, on how to play when you're a goal down at the 75th, 80th, 85th and 90th minute. He drilled that winning, never say die mentality into players minds.

Furthermore, I remember in SAF's final season a tweet that Piers Morgan made which basically said, look at this man, his team has already won the league (only a few minutes left in the game), his team is up, and he's on the sideline barking orders demanding perfection, that's the difference.

And Piers was right, mentality plays such a huge role in the season. I don't think Wenger can inspire that kind of persistence anymore.

For those who've seen Atletí play on a semi regular basis, what's their style of play. From what I've read, his tactics are more defensive, which doesn't fit with the players we have now

Simeone's sides play with an intensity and certain amount of heart/fortitude that Wenger could only dream of tbh. Theses dudes are running on 100% energy mode all game long and it never looks like they really tire laugh.gif

Looks like according to Di Marzio, Manchester United is expecting an answer (By Easter) from Andrea Berta (Atletico Madrid director) on becoming their Director of Football.

Hopefully this happens 8o

About damn time an actual Footy director was hired...kind of had enough of the suits taking care of the transfer policy. He did a pretty damn good job building up a resurgent Atletico into the kind of top team we now see. Hopefully he accepts nerd.gif

Yes and it looks like Mourinho is the one that wants Andrea Berta (two having a strong mutual relationship with Jorge Mendes) with him there at Manchester.

I'm starting to get the feeling LVG is just gonna call it quits at the end of the season. I feel like one of the reasons for the ridiculous amount of youngsters in the squad lately, besides injury(the average age against Watford was 23.something and Mata was the oldest at 27) is because he's working on his legacy. He's always been known for giving so many players,some greats even,their starts so it would be a fitting way of ending his career ushering in a whole new generation of reds.
