    Saw Rafa watching the game @ Anfield yesterday. He really likes to keep those glasses clean!

    Was dismayed at hearing this, but can't in any way defend Real if they are guilty of the same thing they pegged on Barca. I expect FloPe to stock up on peeps this winter now. Plus, the transfer ban doesn't explicitly prevent him from cutting players either.

    They're going to appeal and maybe be able to do what Barcelona did and push the penalties to a later period and have summer available to buy players. Which would be their best play

    Shahanshah's a gooner? I don't think I'll be buying you a cup of tea if we ever meet irl then.

    Just watched Klopp's presser before the United - Liverpool match and I must say I really really like the guy and I wish he took over at United. United to get ripped a new one today.

    Fuckin hell, football. Most entertaining game I've watched in years, that Norwich/Liverpool game.

    Also never felt so exhausted without actually moving for 90 minutes.

    Isn't that the football equivalent of yelling out your ex's name while in action with your current squeeze? Yikes!

    Still, not as bad as yelling out 'mom!' though. :D

    EDIT: not that I'd know, you understand!

    I been hiding...you would hide too if Arsenal were doing as badly as CFC. Other than that, fun season overall. It would be hilarious if Lester City won it all.

    good game today :)

    Our players are totally one dimensional, which makes them very predictable. Only Giroud is unpredictable but that's because he doesn't know what he's going to do himself, thats how he misses tap ins but scores the impossible ones. Wenger went on Sky Sports afterward claiming it wasn't a red card. Costa did exaggerate, but it was clearly a foul and the last man. I have no idea why Giroud had to come off against a team that's tall and muscles us around, while Walcott ran around like a headless chicken.

    I was hoping for Alexis to mark his comeback with a bang but he didn't look quite sharp enough to be thrown out there suddenly -- all he tried was juking to make space for a curler.

    Also, it seems Flamini is not allowed to use his left foot. Was talking to my buddy, it's a bit ridiculous to see so many professionals completely reliant on a single foot. It comes down to training effectively so you can build the instinct to use whichever is better positioned, but there are just countless players, defenders and attackers, that are overly reliant on one or the other.

    In other news, this was another insane strike, seems this weekend was at least good for that

    I was hoping to se Elneny in action. Schade.

    what a useless draw that was ... we've won 2 out of the last 7 league games.

    what a goal by varde tho

    Yep, Southhampton definitely have got our number. They weren't missing Theo too much at all last night.

    I'm a big fan of Flamini, but he was dreadful last night. Elneny should definitely be playing ahead of him. I really like what I saw of the Egyptian last game.

    We are really missing Cazorla. Wow, what a difference without him.

    Also needs to be said Forster was outstanding in goal.

    Oh well, there's always a next game.
