RE: Arsenal 21/22 season

I can feel the waves of joy and hear the celebrations on the IOW from up here. 😁

RE: Spam...

I read somewhere the misspelling and bad grammar is deliberate. I can't remember the exact reasoning but it wasn't to avoid spam filters, something to do with those they were targeting.

It's very easy to get caught even if your paranoid like me. I came within a click about a year back when a TV licence text arrived just when I was doing some banking stuff and the DD was due.

RE: rip Dusty Hill: ZZ Top bassist has died aged 72

That's a damned shame.
Always liked ZZ Top
Bass and drums never showy but a rock solid base for Billy Gibbons who is a way better player than he gets credit for.

Just 72!
Yeh I know, old to you lot but for someone who's about to hit his three score and ten it's tomorrow afternoon.

A vector maybe but given the amount of time the gobs are open and screaming not the main one.

RE: Arsenal 21/22 season

I don't think there was ever any serious doubt that Smith Rowe would sign and I would love to hear from Villa what gave them the idea that they could sign him and we would accept their pound shop valuation.
After having got Saka to extend this to me was the most important bit of the summer business which now seems to be shaping up quite nicely.



I don't know if this is genuine but it gave me a chuckle.

Missing out on USA is fine as long as we can get some serious opposition to replace those matches.

Up to Ep 3 and yes to both your points.

There seem to be quite a few people with scant regard for his celebrity status and TBF he takes it pretty well.
Just had his builder telling him all the rain was down to him hurtling about in big motors all these years.

All true but still a bad decision and an unnecessary load.
Rashford was used to taking pens, Sancho I confess I don't know.

Not sure I believe that but anyway sticking one away on the training ground is a million miles away from last pen in a world final.

RE: Arsenal 21/22 season

Not sure on a personal level but I think Arteta acknowledged he's getting a lot of support from fans and players alike.

I still want to hear Southgate explain why he did that to a 19 year old who had not even completed his first full first team season and never taken a penalty.
Southgate was mid career when he had his miss and he knows damn well that Saka will now get that 'How does this compare...Does this make up for...Did the miss prepare you for.. ' in every interview for the rest of his career.

Senior ex copper on Times radio earlier.
(Short version you can probably find the full thing on their site)
Problem is not just Wembley but most grounds now have moved to private security ie: stewards on a basic £8. an hour and if you want to get physical and push past them they wont stop you.
Not trained and not paid enough.
Also still 40,000 coppers short so the man power isn't there.

Most apt tweet I saw, to paraphrase.

How come 'we' win something but 'they' lose it.

RE: [VIDEO] Euros 2021 (Men's)

I've been behind Southgate with most if not all of his decisions but he can ***k right off putting that last penalty on the shoulders of a player that young.
He'll carry that through the rest of his career and it could well screw up his entire season before he gets over it enough to carry on.

RE: [VIDEO] Euros 2021 (Men's)

As a curtain raiser did anyone watch the MMA tag team final last night?
Argentina v Brazil
Argentina defending a 1.0 lead with everything short of sword and shield. Every ref conning manoeuvre in the book, from both sides, and some that weren't with a very good ref that wasn't falling for any of them.

Included a blinding save from Emi Martinez (remember him) which was about all he had to do, apart from field back passes, to finally win Messi a title.

On our final.
If it had been played in 2020 as it should've been I don't think we'd be in the final as the year has allowed young players to mature that bit more. It may still but be too early against an Italian team capable of doing what Argentina just did. Hence I think we only win if we score first and within the 90 mins.

Bodes well for the future though and if nobody pegs out from heat exhaustion we should do well in the World Cup.

Best Tweet of the morning so far asking if Johnson is going to do a John Terry if we win. (Full kit wan*er)

RE: [VIDEO] Euros 2021 (Men's)

I'm afraid I don't do build up these days.
It goes on ready for the match a few minutes before and even then on mute.
Half time I'm usually up and re snacking and beering.

Afterwards?
Only if we've won.
I'm a bad loser.
If we lose it goes off with the ref's whistle.

I'll catch up with analysis a day or two later once the pain has reduced to a dull, sulking resentment.
