    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!
  3. Official: Callum Hudson-Odoi Signs New 5-Year Contract

    Possible good news?
  4. 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.

  8. Squad Status: 2019/2020 Season

    Not harsh... watch the game again. His attitude is what causes the capitulation of the team
  9. Squad Status: 2019/2020 Season

    So we should have kept Luiz because he's a "leader"??? Wow!!! Having a clown leading you doesn't work out well, usually. Look at Luiz during the World Cup semi-final against Germany. Look at Luiz looking at other players, hands on hips, when it was HIS fault. That's not leadership. Being a "geezer" isn't leadership.
  10. Transfer Talk Topic

    It was ANDREAS CHRISTENSEN'S twitter feed FFS, not "Bob's"!!! If you read my post [and I quote... "Do you mean me, out of interest? If so you're looking at the wrong person. If you don't mean me, apologies."] I was not initially "grumpy", just confused (look at my last 6 words!!!). I'm now pissed off because you are once again demonstrating your inability to understand (is it a deliberate thing you do just to wind people up?), your pig-headedness, your arrogance, and your expectation that everyone should be able to follow your torturous thought processes which lead you to post things that make no sense whatsoever. Over half the arguments on these forums involve you as one of the protagonists... ever wondered why?
  11. Official: David Luiz Joins Arsenal

    Given we finished above them in the league and beat them in the Europa League final, you really are twisting logic to find its breaking point, aren't you? Trust you to come up with such nonsense!
  12. Transfer Talk Topic

    I did read the post and like 99% of your posts it made no ****ing sense whatsoever because you follow your own train of thought and expect everyone else to guess what it was you were thinking of as you wrote your nonsense.

    And you wonder why people "misunderstand" you! FFS!!!

    Do you mean me, out of interest? If so you're looking at the wrong person. If you don't mean me, apologies.

    Yep, I think you've pretty much hit the nail on the head here.
