  1. We officially have an incompetent board

    And when you mention this on here or on social media while it's going on, certain fans accuse you of being spoilt and ungrateful (as you can tell, I'm still highly irritated by those accusations). There's a certain section of the fanbase that need a kick up the arse as well. This isn't 1983. You don't have to settle for mediocrity when our ceiling is clearly much, much higher these days.
  2. Gary Cahill - PL CL FAC LC EL champion

    Let's leave his playing and talk about his captaincy. Where has he been the past few weeks? He has left the talking to players like Courtois, Cesc and Azpi. And we gave him the f**king captain's arm band? One of Conte's worst decisions imo (if it was solely his decision). Retreats back into his shell when we're under. True captain, that!
  3. We officially have an incompetent board

    When we got 95 points or so in 2005, it didn't mean Arsenal fans had to feel good about their season because "we were just that good". What's stopping us from giving City a real run for their money? I'll tell you; terrible business. How much have we spent on left backs since Ashley Cole left? A lot more money than Juve were asking for Sandro last summer. That's exactly what I'm talking about. Look at Zappacosta, what exactly was the point of wasting 23m on him when we have a really exciting young player in Dujon Sterling that could have done as good a job, if not better? That's 23m that could have been add to a few elsewhere to acquire a world class player. Conte is complicit in this too btw, imagine if he hadn't been forced to give Christensen a chance and we'd gone out to waste money on yet another CB. And if my daughter comes home with an 85% score on her maths exam, I'd tell her she did a good job but push her to get a 95% next time. Because the student who got a 95% isn't superhuman. Man City aren't superhuman robots. They're just much better run than us, have a clear plan and clear vision for how they want to play and they back their manager on his targets big time.
  4. We officially have an incompetent board

    How can you care about the business of how the club is run when you seem to be okay with the rubbish business that has been conducted so far? Why spend 40m a piece on two average players when you can get a world class one for 70m and have him backed up by an exciting youth prospect from the academy? We've spent a lot of money on bang average players. Guess what that gives us? Bang average results. This fear of spending big money on real quality is puzzling because we still end up spending a lot of money anyway, just on poorer players. We'll end up looking to sell some of these players in the next few years to find better ones. We spent heavily in the early Roman years but then we didn't have to spend like that for the 5-6 years after that because we were already stacked up with world class young players or players just entering their prime. I think you get the point I'm trying to make.
  5. We should have gotten a kick up the arse months ago. We're bang average and will get smashed by Barca next month.
  6. We're talking about Conte here. Hudson-Odoi is going straight back to the reserves.
  7. This is the first game where I've felt like Conte could get fired before the end of the season. What a stubborn manager! Not even willing to switch things up even a little bit.
  8. Olivier Giroud to Chelsea

    We sold Cech to them. I think they need to shut the f**k up.
  9. We officially have an incompetent board

    No disrespect but that's a really silly conclusion to make an overly simplistic. If we were a mid table club I'd want us to aspire for a top 6 spot, especially if we had the potential to do that. If we were always fighting relegation, I'd want us to aspire to be a mid table club, especially if we had the potential. If we were a top championship club but only remained that, I'd want us to aspire to be promoted to the Premier League, especially if we had the potential to. You don't see Madrid fans content with sitting on 9 CLs. They wanted the 10th. And after the 10th, they wanted the 11th. Now that they have 12, they still want a 13th. That's what top clubs do, and quite frankly, that's what every supporters mindset should be. Aspiring for your club to always reach that next level. I'm not sorry that I'm not content with our current predicament. Deal with it.

    Yet we're getting to that phase of seemingly going for cheap, average players in order to save money for a new stadium. Sound familiar to you?
  11. We officially have an incompetent board

    The market requires big spending these days. I get your point but it leaves a bad taste knowing we were up there with the very best and could beat the Barcas and Bayerns of football when we had the old guard in their prime but now we seem to be a team overly reliant on Hazard and not much world class quality elsewhere apart from Courtois. We've had Hazard for 6 years now and I can't help but think we really could and should have won more with him. I'm actually worried about playing Barca next month. If Conte can consistently get his arse handed to him by Le Voyeur, then I don't have much hope that we can knock Barca out, especially in the form they're in at the moment. We may end the season trophyless. Hopefully not.
  12. We officially have an incompetent board

    My point is and has always been that it would be a massive shame for us to regress to the point Arsenal have been in for years now. Top club but not really doing much of note.
  13. Olivier Giroud to Chelsea

    She's REALLY good with numbers. Maybe too good for football. If this was a hedge fund or something like that, she'd be the shining star of the firm. But this is football. Clubs will tell you to f**k off if you lowball too much.
  14. Olivier Giroud to Chelsea

    That would be too much for Marina. She's letting City have him.
  15. Olivier Giroud to Chelsea

    It's one thing to be a good negotiator, it's another thing to be a bloody cheap bastard. There's a fine line between both and she has been waayyy on the side of "cheap" for some time now, regardless of the Morata transfer.
