    In the Norwich v Man U FA Cup game, ref gave a red card which was then checked (and confirmed) on VAR... so I think it may be entirely down to whether that ref has a spine or not.

    Could still do with a commanding centre back, though. One that can organise a defence.
  4. Transfer Talk Topic

    Yes, just a one year extension. I expect we're looking to sell rather than release on a free, and from his point of view (with his injury record and consequent lack of playing time) it gives him one more year of decent wages to put in the bank if no-one bids for him.
  5. Quick Jokes

    The "Flat Earth Society" are claiming that the 2m Covid-19 social distancing rules are pushing some of their members over the edge.
  6. New Stadium Plans

    Pubs re-opening on 4th July doesn't mean Covid-19 has gone... it just means the government believe there will be enough intensive care beds available for those that need them.

    About to post the very same.

    Agree entirely. Tomori is still young and has room to improve, but the other three are as good as they'll ever be... and for a club wanting to chase several titles/cups a season, they're just not good enough.
  9. Coronavirus COVID-19

    Sorry to hear that, Mark. Brother in law (about 8/9 years younger than me) died in April of C-19 Both my daughter and son-in-law have been laid off and I've not worked since 5th March.

    No it isn't... it really isn't. Ever thought of changing your profile picture to this?

    I felt the same when the computers at university no longer accepted punch cards and we had to use Winchester drives!
  12. Official: Callum Hudson-Odoi Signs New 5-Year Contract

    Possible good news?
  13. Official: David Luiz Joins Arsenal

    This was the actual quote from Frank earlier today: "David’s obviously left. We’d had some conversations over the last week, honest conversations because I know David well, and I think the conclusion of that was that he moved on. It’s an area of the pitch where I have competition, and people will be needing to make that shirt their own. I don’t have ones and twos and threes, I have people competing for the position. I don’t have it set in my mind. He’s moved on. I and everyone at the club wish him the best, because he’s been part of some really good things in our recent history, and now he moves on to play elsewhere. In terms of fallouts, no. There were honest conversations. As a player I always expected honesty from a manager, whatever the news, and I think I got that back from David, hence why he ends up moving to Arsenal. The day David didn’t train it was a decision I made because we were in the middle of this, and it was quite clear which way it was going, but it was not a strike or a punishment or being ostracised, it was just a decision for that day."

    I'd probably have Kenedy instead of Willian on the bench, given Frank said Willian was a little way off from being considered.

    Also posted in the Luiz thread... From the press conference (started 13:15 BST) "Honest conversation" between Lampard and Luiz earlier in the week. Lamps made clear there was no falling out and no 'strike'. Luiz not training was Lampard's decision due to on-going conversation they (Lampard personally and club in general) were having with Luiz. Essentially has reiterated that he doesn't have a set 1st, 2nd, 3rd choice... everyone must fight for the shirt, whoever they are. No news regarding CHO contract Regarding expectations: he's not thinking 2nd is good, top 4 is good, top 6 is good... we go out to win every game in every competition. Loves hearing 'outsiders' and media downplaying our expectations and writing us off. It's not how he's thinking and it's not how the players are thinking. Kante fit but hasn't decided if he'll start. Willian and Rudiger still a little way to go before being able to be considered.
