    lol, how often do you hear a manager publicly blame his goalkeeper like that for conceding a goal (a goal that was essentially meaningless btw)?

    Not often admittedly but you said he manufactured a fall out which is not true.  He answered a question, honestly. 

    To be fair though, being an Arsenal fan you were used to years of "I didn't see it" from your manager so it must be a bit odd. 😜

    Emi Martinez is a massive weirdo but this is such classic Unai Emery, manufacturing a fallout with any player who has a bit of personality and balls about them.


    You manufacturered that out of what he said?.....right. :wacko:

    Nick Pope sent off today means he's suspended for the cup final. Their backup keeper Dubravka played for us in the League Cup earlier this season :lol: Which means Liverpool legend Karius should start in goal.

    Kiss goodbye to the League Cup, Karius is a shot stopping god! 😉

  4. Came in here to see what has been said about Trugoy passing and read all the January posts of them getting close to releasing their music on streaming. 

    That's made me feel real sad on a Wednesday morning.☹️ RIP an absolute legend, 54 years old is no age at all.

    Maybe Thiago was the problem. Henderson is playing better than I've seen for a long while and the team are winning the midfield battle which hasn't been the case for a long time.

    Not seen Henderson and Thiago on the pitch together in ages, so not sure Thiago is the issue, more the midfield isn't settled.

    Glad to hear Hendo back though.😎

  6. Just finished Blackbird, really really enjoyed it.  I've not really made the most of my 5 months free, with only that and Ted Lasso watched.  What one series would you suggest to watch in the next couple of weeks?

    Oh yeah, they are the dominant team, no question. But the comparison was more over longer periods (and more titles), so was looking at the bigger picture. In the here and now, Pep is obviously king. 

    Pep stays and I think City will dominate for another 5 years.  He goes any time soon and I can see it being a couple of seasons of it could be anyone's and then Newcastle start spending big and take over for a bit.

    It's interesting when you look at the actual data compared to how things 'feel' and Man City are currently running at 50% of title wins (taking from the start of their arrival with big money - 2011/12 to now). Liverpool (70s & 80s) and Man Utd (92/92 to 12/13) both run at ~61% (11 titles in 18 seasons for Liverpool, 13 in 21 for Man Utd), so Man City aren't as dominant as you might think. Obviously if you just look at the Pep era that only jumps to 57% (4 in 7) and it is of course a smaller sample size.

    If the Pep era is 57% currently, 4% off the most dominant teams English football have ever seen, I'd personally say that is very dominant indeed (taking in account he is still in charge). Manchester Utd winning era felt like it would never end, just hope that isn't the same for Man City.

    Good article here suggesting the problems on the pitch are being compounded by issues off it: 



    That's an interesting article.  I didn't know a whole lot about the back room staff being so decimated and that definitely will have an effect on how the squad is prioritised.  Definitely writing at the moment, just hope some key performers can get back in the team and we can go on a bit of a run. Getting rid of klopp would be a very stupid move indeed.

    It's weird isn't it?  He sort of sounds upset.  It's the tone of someone commentating on Iceland scoring their fifth against England.

    I guess he just hates his job but doesn't want to give up the money.

    Just hope Martin Tyler is absolutely nowhere near it; he sounds more like he’s commentating on paint dry than football these days.

    That's him on the Rashford goal posted on the last page, isn't it?  A cracking goal and he still somehow sounded bored.
