Its an interesting hypothesis. I'll scroll through my National Geographics to check if these tribes are known to binge on Get Carter and the Sweeney, and have a strong aversions to pastry and Gilberto 'the fish' Silva.

There was a place in Matabeleland called Wankie. Now Hwange. Also this:

Reminiscing about where we came to the here and now with a formidable back line. Oh the memories.

Remember this guy? Nice enough man I suppose, but shouldn't have been in an Arsenal shirt as long as he was. Good luck to him though. I know I rode him hard (but he needed it and benefited from it. :42laughter: )

Schalke 04
On 1 February 2021, Mustafi joined German side Schalke 04 on a permanent transfer. He was reportedly signed as the replacement for Liverpool-bound Ozan Kabak on a six-month contract. He made his debut five days later in a 0–3 defeat against RB Leipzig in the Bundesliga.

Levante
On 2 September 2021, Mustafi joined La Liga club Levante on a two-year deal.

Ornstein reports that Brook Norton-Cuffy has signed a new deal with Arsenal, he only had a year left, likely to go on loan in the Championship. He’s a fantastic talent at Right-back. Good to tie him to a longer deal

Man U now linked with a bid for Rabiot. That is like pouring petrol on the fire.

Man U had a much smaller rebuilding job than Arsenal because whilst there were factors of underperforming high earners which were similar they had a more successful recent team than us and they have a much bigger budget meaning more room for error.

I'll maintain the first step for Man U in their rebuild (and they still haven't taken it yet) is humility. Once they realise they are nowhere near the attraction they were and they realise they can't just sign a few big names and make it back to the top then they can start the rebuild.

How many of that Man U squad would you even take in our squad? Most of them are simply not very good footballers. I think Elneny would start in their midfield no doubt.

Their recent transfers have been woeful, for me it always seems lazy, there is never really a surprise signing for Man U, they mostly seem to buy whoever is the talk of the papers at the time. You could probably go through a list of signings that clubs in 7th-14th have made in the past 2 years and easily come up with a team better than Man U's for half the cost Man U have spent in that time.

A few sources in Spain saying Arsenal are in negotiations with Villarreal over Yeremi Pino, 19-year old right winger. No idea about the validity of the sources, but I know he's rated as one of the best young attacking players in Spain. Very interesting if true.

So great to start with a win and nice to see utd lose today.
We hopefully should take care of Leicester so 6 points out of 6 but can't take anything for granted.
Only downside is spurs have wolves who they should beat.
If saliba gets regular games then surely he signs a new contract.
Imperative we keep him.
He looks a monster and only 21.
Big clubs around Europe will definitely be sniffing around and tapping him up but to see Arteta being so positive about him and praising him is fantastic.
We have a jewel that has to be polished and nurtured.
Charm offensive is underway I reckon to get him to sign.
Supposedly we dropped a giant quote on our twitter over what Arteta had said about him after the game.

Really painful having to wait until Saturday for the next game.

Apart from scoring a fine goal last night, Nuno Tavares was also named man of the match and is getting lots of praise for his overall performance. Marseille are playing him as a left wingback with three central defenders, I can understand why he'd work well in a formation like that. Hides his flaws and lets him use his ability to drive forward. He's not a bad player, but I wonder if he'll ever work in a back four.

Posts mentioning that it was Saliba's debut at Friday's CP game.
Guess better than referring to him as a "new signing".

Ødegaard covered more distance than any premier league player at the weekend. Lots of reports were that he had a poor game. At least the workrate doesn't stop so he still offers something even if his passing and touch is off.

It is a shock Bernard. She battled cancer for 30 years apparently. Diagnosed with breast cancer in 1992.

Before Fergie, they were in the same position. Ted MacDougal as an example. They never thought about how players fit in. They have returned to this phase. I am convinced that City actually take the piss with them. Alexi as an example - City say they want him and Utd step in and just overspend, Ronaldo - exactly the same. It looks like Utd hear about City rumours and just can't allow the player to go to them. If I was running Utd the person I would want to start the reorganisation is Edu. Get rid of the dross and start the rebuild. I don't think he would be interested but thats the model many clubs will look to for the future.

I thought you may know more about this but her father was a Professor in German at Melbourne Uni, but I believe he may have been a spy before that with MI5. Not an unusual path as I know of a number of ex British spies who moved down here with their families, often with name changes but not in this case. I can't confirm this. Her grandfather was a Nobel winning scientist who fled Germany.

She was a big supporter of cancer research. We have lost 2 great singers this week. Olivia and Judith Durham. I have such fond memories of her and John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever. I was not a particular disco liker but the songs from that movie and Grease live in my mind just like the songs from the Sound of Music when I was very young. RIP Olivia: one of the greats.

I like Nuno. He would do well in a left wingback role. Hope Arteta have him back in his plans next season.
Nice, unassuming chap as well.

I’ve said before that I rate Tavares. There’s a fine player in there. I’m more hopeful he can operate in a back four, which is clearly the system that Arteta prefers. He made some bad errors last season but I would like to think that sort of issue will be overcome with more experience when playing in a back four.

Rolls Royce, Bentley, Jaguar, Vauxhall, British Leyland, Mini. I’m sure there must be others but I’m struggling to think of any.

EDIT: Lotus who sponsor Norwich. I think Maclaren make road cars too, though I associate them more with Formula 1.

That’s eight. I would have added Daimler but didn’t you say they were German?

Don't worry about it Bernard, you certainly know more car brands than I do. I've never owned a car, and I don't really see myself ever doing so. Living in a big city I just feel there's no need for it, public transport gets me wherever I want anyway.

As you’re in Sweden, Volvo is the only Swedish car manufacturer that springs to my mind.

Damn, I forgot Range Rover when listing the British ones. I presume they’re the same company as Rover, rather than a different firm with Range stuck in front of the name.

Close, Bern.

Rolls Royce is German (BMW)
Bentley is German (VW)
Jaguar is Indian (Tata - now branded Jaguar Land Rover)
Vauxhall is German (Opel)
British Leyland ceased trading in 1986
Mini is German (BMW)
Lotus is Chinese

I'm not sure about our near-neighbours, but Australia has always been good at making cars. The 1952 Triumph Mayflower Utility was one of our finest.

Haven't been many truly British cars for years but from my youth:

Wolseley, Riley, Singer, Hillman, Humber, Standard, Austin, Morris, Hawker Siddeley, Triumph, Jensen, Jowett - all now defunct brands. I'm sure there are more.

Sad, isn't it?

Yes, that’s another. They’re still in business I believe. Think they specialise in cars with an older more classical appearance.

Thanks DHD. Didn’t know BMW own Rolls Royce and Volkswagen own Bentley. Lotus is Chinese and Jaguar Indian? Good grief!

Thought BMW might own Mini as the BMW dealer in Enfield that sold me my car also sells Minis from the same site.

Good call, Bored.

Still being made pretty much as they were 50 years ago, albeit with better engines (by BMW). Hand crafted ash framing on an aluminium chassis. Highly prized and expensive but with a long waiting list if you want one.

Years ago, an old boss of mine had a 3-wheeler Moggy. Sounded like a Spitfire. I was a passenger many time. No weather protection, no seat belts, vague steering and dodgy brakes but it went like *%^@ off the shovel. Used to get spattered with oil so despite looking like Biggles, a flying helmet was de rigeur. I think they still make a version of those too.

I, in no way, wish harm on Ryan Giggs ex and family....but...there is always a 'but' isn't it? haha...but I hate him more than any one else save Scholes and Sherringham. This is messy. It's old news to you guys as I have to assume its been in the news there for a while. First time I'm hearing this. I did bring home a girl once from the club and I had to go somewhere Sunday morning and she thought I was giving her the heave ho and refused to leave. Flat out said 'No'. I wasn't going to have 'carnal knowledge of her person' and discard her. I actually wanted to see her later...till her little tirade.
