Re: English Football 2015-16

May be a false alarm, not confirmed yet.

Seems an obvious choice to replace Monk if he has indeed been sacked:

Agree that it's a bit concerning, just don't think it's certain that he can't improve.

His longest streak of starting games for Arsenal is probably less than 10 in his whole time with the club, I still think it's possible that he could make strides with regular game time.

Hmm when you first posted it I googled his name and Twitter seemed to be saying he had been sacked. Now talksport (lol) is saying he's not been sacked, but is holding crunch talks today. Monk trading at 1/10 with some bookies to be the next go.

Also, that clip is probably the worst thing I've ever seen. Was only fourteen seconds but I could barely watch.

a player with his physical/technical attributes should be hitting double figures for both goals and assists very easily, he had 1g/1a in 1500mins last and 0g/0a in 500 mins this season which says it all really.
his instincts are just all wrong and his off-the-ball movement is just mind-baffling as instead of trying to get in behind he always makes it easy for the opposition and hugs the touchline.
take campbell's goal which was a simple run in behind, something all wide-forwards try a million times a game, ox doesn't.

I'm thinking the same, seems to be when ever a manager punches above his weight (best finished with swans) then goes back to the natural curve they get sacked for it.

Joyful times to be a manager.

Genuine question if you don't have adverts at the start of the video anyway, what difference does it make if it's embedded or not?

Re: English Football 2015-16

That clip makes me wanna go to French football again. I went to the cup final at Stade de France a long time ago and it was boring as hell despite PSG being in it. Cool overall experience tho.

I mean, I'm not saying that Mahrez has or will have the quality to play at that level, I haven't watched him enough myself to comment on that. But the logic of "ozil and alexis were rejects" isn't very sound, transfers are often circumstantial as we all know.
Also, Bale, for instance, didn't start lighting **** on fire until he was about 23.

I was just wondering the exact same thing as I had clicked and (because I have an *********) didn't see any ads on the youtube site. Normally the point would be that it increases the likelihood that you'll watch more clips and eventually more commercials, I think?

If they weren't rejects, wouldn't they still be there playing every week and their clubs wouldn't be actively looking to replace them and sell them on?

Re Ambush:- Totally agree, just don't get it.

as a fan, would you prefer watching an "underperforming" 45m player like ozil or like an overperforming 6m one like chadli. like do you even like football as a thing or do you just like the tribalism of it, of belonging to a particularly shrewd money-making loss-minimalizing paulinho-flogging rapacious tribe headed by someone with better! than a masters

serious question
