    Ok, but you're not allowed to say you want to see other teams battling for the title. Never. Ever.




    I don't want them to. I'd rather they axe LvG and lets Giggsy take the reins for the rest of the year...see how that works out and then reevaluate in the summer.

    Don't worry Arsenal fans. Your mid-season meltdown is right on schedule. December makes you giddy, then you get into late Jan, early Feb and crap will hit the fan. It's like the sun rising.

    Then, trusty Arsene will guide Arsenal back into the top-4 by May, and the "Wenger Out!" chants will die away, and all will be right again.

    the only thing that's more certain is Spurs finishing below us. Remember 2006 ? They had 4th place secured until the last day they threw away some points and we edged them out into 4th for no real reason.

    Did Wenger get lumps of coal in his stocking ? Because sure seems like the collapse is arriving earlier than expected. Thrashed !

    Every loss means collapse to some people.

    Props to Petr Cech for breaking David James' Premier League record with his 170th(?) clean sheet.

    Fuera Benitez. The merry-go-round continues, and now we'll be firing Zidane in 6 months time.

    I've been a Real fan since 1996, but I'm afraid I detest the way they treat their managers.

    Just about as good as Roman treats Chelsea managers...which I don't mind of course.

    And well done you Gunners, dismantling those pesky black cats! Let's make three Cups in a row please. :)

    how can you be a gooner and then say you're a fan of those fascists :p

    my buddy had lunch with Kanu recently :slayer:
    of course, had to ask about Titi. He said Henry was way faster than he looked on TV.

    i'm also not looking forward to facing barcelona. they're scary good. granted, opposition wasn't the greatest but the second goal against granada : neymar dribbles down left wing, chips a cross into edge of box for suarez who, with first touch, pops it ahead of the defense for messi on opposite side of box, and he catches up to it to slot home with first touch. it's like watching a video game

    Zizou back near the pitch. Legend. The players must be loving it right now, the fans surely back him. I know it's a matter of time before Perez turns on him, but Real seem to be revived under ZZ

    Eh - one game against an underperforming Depor. Give it time. Thank goodness he's shuffled Bale back out to the wing, and out of the no.10.

    wenger is back to raiding child prodigies ? looks like we're close to signing two nigerian U17 kids. i hope it's not a scam. people are already questioning their ages....

    Elneny is cleared to transfer on Wednesday, he's supposed to be quite good.

    Spalletti for sure? Maybe you could give Rafa a job?

    Bloody hell, so frustrating, so close to three points. But what a fantastic game of football!

    Entertaining but entirely too predictable. Everyone knew pool would come out and press, apparently everyone except wenger and the players. Sloppily giving away possession at the end. It was just a matter of time before the equalized. Props to Klopp for his strategy.

    Giroud's goal was great. Excellent touch to set it up. it seems injuries spur more goals in him.

    Real and Atletico are being punished for transfer irregularities re: youth players, same thing that happened to Barca. Next two transfer windows closed, Perez will lose his mind not being able to squad-recycle or cash in on Ronaldo until summer of 2017
