    French do not recognize the concept or sarcasm, they prefer to fart in our general direction.

    Yours surely, but I don't represent all french people.
    Otherwise, you'd be called xenophobic. And not all finnish people.

    Brighton 4-0 win today. Potter showed off a new formation for us with the 3-4-3. Worked well, will be interesting to see if the Gulls come out with it at the start of the Prem season.

    Auba with a nice goal for Arsenal, Mihki really blasted that cross at him though.

    I like Ceballos

    Nketiah is trying to do too much

    Aubameyang almost just scored a gorgeous goal

    Nketiah gets knocked down from behind in the box and nothing is given.

    Mustafi did his usual let's give up and look at ref for a phantom offside call again.

    I couldn't think of a less capable captain. Maybe it matures him a bit.

    that would have been something if it would've went in, the keeper was in shambles.

    Nketiah was disappointing I thought, not very sharp.

    Medley looked timid.

    I hope Laca is okay.

    Speaking of crappy defending. Liverpool’s defense has been pretty poor.

    He's still young as he looked amazing against Real when he came on, almost scored twice against their first team (was bad against the Rapids). Probably facing some consistency issues due to his age, but don't like losing two in a row even in a friendly. Depay was awesome though, I understand what YNWA sees in him even though there might be some nationality homerism in it.

    And i thought Van Dijk was the best central defender in the world, go figure.
    Yeah, you guys look like crap. -> 2-3 L (Dortmund) 1-2 L (Sevilla) 2-2 D (Sporting) 0-2 down after 28 minutes vs Napoli.

    Next Wednesday you gotta face Lyon, who just beat Arsenal.

    He generated a few chances. Just couldn't score. His movement and work rate are pretty good.

    Laca was in a walking boot.

    Willock looked really good in the first half and Nelson played pretty well.

    He is still the best defender in the world. But yeah, the defending and preseason is lackluster at best.

    That said, still missing Alisson and the attackers. That will help.

    That's not good, I heard Emery say it isn't serious, but I just had peroneal tendon subluxation and it's been 6 weeks and I still have no strength in the ankle.
    I hope the boot is just a precaution.

    I mean, his performance last season speaks for itself. Preseason isn’t everything.

    If they’re shedding goals in the regular season I’ll be more concerned. Right now it’s just a bit confusing.

    Correct. Though I more worry because veterans are the ones looking lost.
