Citeh drop more points today. I don’t see Fabinho being missing today mattering too much against Brighton and Liverpool have a fairly easy schedule all the way to Boxing Day so they may escape it meaning anything at all up until then.
The top 4 are clearly the class of the league this year but everyone not below the relegation line can jump up and surprise any given week. 13 games in and the 5th place Wolves are only 9 points clear of Norwich and 6 points clear of being on the bubble.
Hard to imagine BHA winning but a tie would not be impossible (though a bit outrageous).
That group F. Ouch.
2 last world champions
Group of death for sure
lol 10mins and Villa already leads ManU
Emery had to go but Arsenal have clearly been lacking solid backline presence for a while. They fielded possibly the weakest, least-physical 4 possible today. Mustafi is a disaster in particular.
Not much defensive help from the midfielders, either. Some changes to the roster are in order.
Would have much preferred France and Germany spread out to make the other groups more interesting....
Pretty crazy Watford fired their second manager of the season.
Refusing to go quietly into relegation....
With the incredibly convoluted setup of this tournament I don’t think any of it matters too much. 4 of the 6 3rd place teams will advance anyway and if Germany comes in 3rd in their group and advance they would play their round of 16 game at home. This is pretty much the dumbest tournament setup I’ve ever seen.
Yeah this has been their issue forever. They haven’t had a dominant central defender since Sol Campbell left the first time after the Champions League final season in ‘06. And they haven’t had a world class defense midfielder to shield the back line since Gilberto Silva left after ‘08. Every other place on the field they have had plenty of talent but nobody has had a softer middle defensively than Arsenal for over 10 years, which is frankly absurd.

back in business...
I struggle to see what they really need at this time though. Going with young academy grads has served them very well. Sure they could maybe use a little more depth in a few places but bringing in players of a certain status will definitely take away opportunities from the youngsters who are thriving. A commanding central defender is about the only thing they actually need IMO.
I would agree....they need to reshape some depth. Alonso is out of favor, needs to be replaced, Pedro too, Giroud. Willian possibly too as he’s out of contract soon.
Unreal. He even curled it in.
wow....I can’t remember a better backheel goal....sick.
Applied today for the euro 2020 tickets.
In fact I want to go more to visit some cities with a colleague than see the matches, because she's not too into football, so I decided to let her pick some cities and I was looking for the games after.
Results will be known late january
So applied for
Netherlands - Ukraine
Netherlands vs Austria
already been there several times, but I'm sure the athmosphere will be good there during football games and I choose this city too, because it's only 3h away by car from my place
Denmark vs Russia in Copenhagen (never been there)
Portugal vs France in Budapest (never been there)
Then I choose the "follow my team ticket" for the Round of 16.
So if Russia qualifies, (and if I got the tickets), I can go and see them in : 4 possibilities
-Amsterdam (if they're 2nd in the group)
-Bucharest / Glasgow (if they're 3rd) (never been there)
-Bilbao (if they're 1st) (never been there)
And I also applied for the final.
So I hope Russia will finish in second place in their group, so I can go and see them in Amsterdam in 1/8
Also if I get the Budapest's tickets, that could be an awesome 2-3 days in the city.
Sounds awesome. Best of luck getting your preferred tickets. Atmosphere at any of those would be awesome.
Colleague? Seems a bit formal.
Colleague, friend,... Yeah it's a little bit complicated
Monday will take place the draw of CL round 16. We will have some good match-ups already in round of 16.
And now they have lost 4 of their last 5 in the league and have to go to Spuds next weekend. Maybe they need some reinforcements after all...
yep, a little stagnant. Too timid.
Lol did Kolasinac just duck away from a potential header save?
Arsenal's interim head coach Freddie Ljungberg said the club needed to hurry up and appoint a new permanent manager after a crushing 3-0 home loss to Manchester City on Sunday, regardless of who that hire might be.
Screw that, take your time and try to get the right guy after the season. They aren’t getting relegated and a season completely out of Europe will be good for them.
Real vs City should be a good one.
One of my ex colleague is a ticket season holder at FC Brugge.
And MU will play them in Belgium on 20th February, one day after my birthday. I'll call him today and ask him if he can get 1 ticket for me too lol.
