I'm sorry but how, yes i know he won the F.A cup, but that doesn't mean a lot when you're going to be playing on thursday's. Its a club going backwards fast, with the toxicity around the emirates at the moment, i can't see them finishing top 4 either (also because Wenger never spends big money, probably another reason he got a contract).

Kroenke is a useless owner, every team he touches turns mediocre (St Louis/L.A Rams, Denver Nuggets etc).


Are they really going backwards any faster than United?

I'd say so

By no means where we good (in fact i'd say our premier league season was an abject failure) but our gamble of winning the europa paid off and more importantly, we're in the champions league, which is more than we can say for than this season.

Not to mention we're going to be spending a ton this summer to bring in some world class players or players who will fill in the holes this squad still has and probably clear out some deadwood players like Rooney (weird calling a club legend deadwood but he kind of is), Young etc.

Arsenal did what we did last season, and LVG got sacked for it (as he should have). Mind you they have a model that they could follow in theory (Arsenal are pretty good at europe relative to their domestic form) so maybe they may end up winning the Europa League and getting into the CL that way.

Not to mention they could be forced to sell Sanchez and Ozil. Also attracting players without CL is damn hard, we missed out on most of our targets because of it and had to pay overs to get some players to agree terms with us. Arsenal aren't going to spend like we did last summer, i can't see Kroenke opening up the purse to give Wenger that kind of money he needs to overhaul their squad (getting a world class striker that can get 20 goals a season in the premier league, new right winger upgrade over Walcott, another CM potentially, potentially a new left back etc).

Ouch lol

United should be better if they land griezmann & others. They will at least spend. Arsenal? Yeah, I think they could be in trouble.

No thanks to Sissokho, he was highly inconsistent at Newcastle and he flopped at Spurs. He may be better off going to Ligue 1 again.

20 quid and a bag of cheetos?

I'm just praying China wants him. Think he could still do a job at a lower table EPL side but he's not recouping us even 20 at this point.

Very sad. R.I.P.

Hell of a competitor and never shied away from a tackle. I think his thunderous goal to level 4-4 against Arsenal will be remembered for a long time.

So sad to hear. He was one of my favorite players when I first started following the PL.
