Big changes afoot at Sunderland who could end up bringing in at least a whole new first XI by the looks of things.

This is starting to drive me mental, there are so many times where a break or even just a general run of play is slowed enormously by a pass being placed a few yards behind where it should be.

How will he fare in his first season? Instant impact making Liverpool serious contenders for top 3 or does he require serious amount of rebuilding? Squad looks awfully fragile when a couple of key players are out so surely this won't be plain sailing for The Normal One?

I always wondered this. Part of the decline at Arsenal was down to the new stadium and the arrival of Chel$ea and Man $ity and being unable to compete. Could Wenger have been a success for us? After all he could not have been any worse than Moyes or LVG.

Imagine having to go to your title rivals and win during a run-in. If there's one 'good' team who you'd expect to cock it up spectacularly, it's Wenger's Arsenal post-2008. But Wenger's Arsenal in the late 90s were an entirely different beast.

Watch a La Liga, Serie A, Bundelisga etc game and the crowd is rocking, even when the stadium is half full (Serie A). Our fixtures are dire for atmosphere. This will be controversial but there are too many old middle class people drinking tea at the Premier League games these days. We need huge s...

I am firmly in the optimist camp. I am delighted we finally have a worthy world-class successor to SAF. Our team is literally better than 90 other English league teams, out of 91 teams. For all the fanfare of Liverpool, Spurs and the like, we are still AHEAD of them. There are so many positives f...

How haven't we addressed this? Surely it's a massive part of why we look so fecking one dimensional when we attack.

Can't help but feel that we lack 'magic' and a single player who can do magical things consistently and basically pull us out of a hole by himself. Someone who regularly turns drab games into ones you can't keep your eyes off. Sometimes when watching other top teams, you get transfixed on their s...

Firstly: Another thread on day of loss. So Yay! Now lets go into seriously analyzing our performances this season. Have we progressed or stagnated or dare I say it, gone backwards. Results wise - No one can even argue that we haven't progressed. Sure we've had a few abysmal results- Huddersfield,...

Is this a thing players regret not getting to do, especially in cases like this where it was a matter of when rather than if? If it is, yayyyy? No? Ok

Just a mishmash of players with no identity or soul. How did it come to this?

soo there are a couple scenario's for the next edition. 1. Messi. La liga is basically over with Barcelona heading to their 25th La liga. No surprise that Messi is their topscorer with 29 goals. Add in the potential 30th Copa Del Rey trophy with Messi 2 goals behind the Copa topscorer Correa. A b...

Just struck me how many european leagues have such boring title races yet interesting relegation battles. England- Man. City won it for months and still quite close at the bottom. Italy- Juve should still have the edge but at least it's close. Very interesting at the bottom, Benevento down but 6-...
