Good to remain winning after the euphoria of beating MU, carry on going strong Arsenal!

Shout out to AMN & Kolasinac!

What was the goal celebration all about. Given he earned a totally unnecessary booking I have no idea why he wanted to look like an armed robber. Maybe it was a deep message like the ref is robbing us and I want people to know


Not quite as deep and subtle as that. :). It's a Black Panther mask from the movie.

Maybe I am missing something but was it worth getting booked for it. Not like he was asking for world peace or god forbid a brexit deal.

On another issue terrible going ons in your homeland. The world can be a very bad place at times.

Is there a rule that you get booked for wearing a mask in celebration? If there is then can you get booked for those over eleborate handshake routines some players do?

Also if this is a rule, why is it a rule? Why is the taking your shirt off = yellow still a rule.

Utter nonsense and sucking the joy out of football

It seems ridiculous indeed. However, I suppose a line has to be drawn somewhere. You can't have players disrobing or making what could be construed as political statements. It's too potentially inflammatory.

Absolutely. But I think.... bookings expire after the quarterfinals, and Auba only has the one, so there is no risk of picking up a suspension?

Oh, so that is how it works.

I think we are really getting somewhere in this debate.

Frankfurt or Prague would probably be the easiest. Hope Napoli and Chelsea draw each other

Chelsea and Napoli would be the hardest draw for us but we're more than capable of beating either. I'd make us favourites against any of the others. I can see us winning the Europa League.

I think we'll beat any of them at home. We need to make sure we can draw to any of them away.

I haven't been a fan of the back 5 when we've played it because we've often played with 2 or more holding mids with little goal/assist potential, but a back 5 with AMN and Kola flying forward AND all of Özil/Ramsey/Aubamayang/Lacazette on the pitch is much more attacking. A goal and an assist from the wing backs last night is exactly what you need from them.

Talk of City getting a 2 transfer window transfer ban for the same rule break that Chelsea were punished for.

Thanks for the clarification. It probably is of little concern then.

Today would this get Stan a ten game ban? Famous moment when players decide to read a match programme while waiting for a corner.

Could that be in the same fantasy world as Jacob Rees-Mogg dining on pie and mash; getting a Merry Christmas card from ISIS and Tottenham winning the league?

Wasn't Chelsea's a second charge? If so they should get more than Man City?

and I fail to see why anyone outside the military should be able to own any kind of automatic rifle/pistol or large magazines of bullets.
Outlaw it and if someone is caught in possession then off to jail for intent to murder, no questions asked. Almost certain that this would reduce the likelihood.

Only a few days ago Tim Berners-Lee Was warning about the dangers of the internet and now you’ve got a madman killing innocent people and live streaming it on Facebook then the subsequent footage being screened on twitter for everyone to see.

Facebook is now being used as a political tool for all sorts and Cambridge Analytica used it to create a momentum behind Brexit.

I seriously think technology has gone too far and these companies are culpable. Regulation and legislation is needed and quickly.

I hope those who perished today rest in peace.

I think it is fair to say that Monchi will have to recover his previous form to be success.

https://www.goal.com/en/news/a-warning- ... 91ckrlogf6

Mislitat should have been retained after what I think was a very successful offseason recruiting campaign.

It sounds like he’s off to Sevilla by the sounds of it which may not be a bad thing. His time at Roma was unimpressive and if he was appointed there would be a proper Spanish mafia thing emierging at arsenal with technical director, manager, most coaching staff and director of football all being Spaniards.

Didn't want Monchi anyway - stupid name and not particularly successful at Roma. Overmars with Bergkamp as a coach and De Ligt on the other hand..

Interesting times at Swansea right now. Cracking sweeping move and goal for Swansea to put them 2 up against Man City.

City win, predictably, 3-2. I see you both posted at 5.51 therefore it's clearly the fault of both of you.

Hi all.

Another sad anniversary this week.

It was 14 years ago on March 16th that we lost Steve Gleiber.

Image

Thanks to everyone for posting and keeping the place going all this time.

Still have so many original posters with us - and many new ones.

And also a special Thank You to our mods - Niall and LTG.

14 years now.

He’s exactly the type of player we should be going for but I’m not sure it’s good to swap Maitland-Niles. Nelson maybe

I suppose one has to ask if Maitland-Niles or Nelson will ever be first choice regulars? Maybe Nelson is the most likely of the two? How about Smith Rowe going the other way instead?

Prsonally I'd rather not offer either and if they won't accept other younger players eg Chambers eg then let them have Bellerin who isn't having a good time atm and will be surplus if we get this youngster.

I think the idea is to sign a player to provide competition for Bellerin and cover whilst he’s injured rather than replace him.

Offering chambers would make more sense

I think maitland-Nile’s could be a good player for us. I think he needs a run as a central midfielder though alongside Torreira. He strikes me as a hard working midfield player.

Nelson made a good start to his loan then tailed off. Maybe offer palace some money and chambers and Nelson for Zaha and the full back.
