Re: English Football 2015-16

Made is my middle name

Also can't wait until Ranieri gets the boot after expectations get unreasonably high and they start regressing

BUT for now, how is that statue coming along?

Also Wenger said that he could play Chambers in the DM position. He gave away a huge amount of easily playable balls vs Liverpool as a CB so I'm not sure how I feel about that

Alli looks like he needs a week off - nothing came off for him yesterday and he got visibly frustrated. Hopefully we just drop Lamela into the 10, although I can also see the case for Mason

The Chelsea game is huge. If we win, we are 13 points clear, and Plop and the other contenders will also pull further ahead. Their season is definitely over if they lose as they will have to gain more than a point per game for the rest of the season on all the teams ahead of them to qualify for the CL.
Mason? Seriously. This is a fist pump Lamela in for Alli situation. I think it should be fine. For the 5 midfield spots I feel very good with 6 players in them so we can keep rotating a little bit plus throw in someone like n'jie/onomah/townsend/mason/bentaleb in cups. and dembele/alli can play in either the 2 or the 3 so that adds some flexibility.

Big lol at quoting this without providing the context.

Novak's Dad's friend, who is a "nutritional scientist" (for those who don't know, the term is synonymous with witch doctor) put a piece of bread on Novak's stomach, which Novak said made him feel weaker than he would otherwise feel. Novak then stopped eating gluten, which he claims was a big factor in taking his tennis to the next level, neglecting to mention his dietary changes occurred around the same time he stumbled across the dusty remains of Uncle Tito's secret Yugoslav PED depositary

Re: English Football 2015-16

Have Arsenal even ran particularly bad with injuries this season?

These things are relative and all the other teams bar Spurs have experienced some run bad:

Liverpool: Benteke, Firminho, Sturridge, Sakho, Henderson all injured for some period of time.
City: Aguero, Silva, Kompany etc etc both missed a decent chunk.
Utd: Rooney has avoided injury.

Also, how much of this "run bad" is just Arsenal having more v good/important players whose injuries we actually notice (ie nobody really gives a **** if, say Mason or Joe Allen get injured. Likewise, if, say, Schweinsteiger got injured it wouldn't be as big a deal because Utd actually have more than one player who can play DM!)

Re: English Football 2015-16

There's a fixed match going on currently in Greece. Over 2.5 1.35 with the game 0-0 after 34 mins and the away side 1.3 to be winning at HT. The home side Kissamikos are 1.68 to win the match though.

Kissamikos vs Ergotelis

lols, i didn't even read it. i simply posted the first link on google (which i did say). I read it on the BBC website originally a couple of months or so ago and it was interesting although come to think of it it's probably just PEDs.

Lol Ergotelis scored with the last kick of the 1st half, trying to find video of the goal.

So I'm guessing Kissamikos win 2-1 then.

A+.

Good to see the bubble and squeaks rooting out the corruption issues they have over there.

Lamela definitely deserves to play and would be my pick, but with reference to your second point, Mason for Alli is a like-for-like deal that means we can either play with 2 or 3 in the middle of the park.

Re: English Football 2015-16

I wouldn't say they are really that similar though, besides obvious stuff like being pencilled in as a CM and englishness.

alli is a good, high intensity player with a lot of versatility. mason looks to be similar at a very quick glance, but he is essentially a chicken navigating the pitch sans head. if you want to look at reasons for our vast improvement this season, you have to look at two things. toby in for <insert crap CB> and dier/alli in for masonleb. dembele has been our best player the last month and lamela has been very good this season.

Re: English Football 2015-16

Lol I've become quite good at spotting unusual market activity that's all.

So I'm reading that the last gasp Ergotelis goal in the 1st half was a backheel! Well, if you're going to rig a match might as well do it in style.
