I knew some Arsenal "fans" were intellectually bankrupt, but didn't realize how profoundly so they were!

Bye then! There's only one club in London that matters!

...so Villa spent all last summer fending off Liverpool, who would buy Barry for £18m and not a penny less.

This summer they're letting him talk to City a month before the window even opens... and City have offered £12m.

Someone want to explain to me how the hell Villa are making sense of this? And if he goes to City, after stating he wanted CL football, well then it is simply the most obscene, money-grabbing transfer since... well, the last one.
Says here it's been done:

I was hoping he'd stay at Villa.

You're the one who jumps from friendly football banter to libelous comments about paedophilia and then calls up your boy Hanson Bro to get yourself off the permaban that should have brought. But you keep on telling yourself that you behave like a civilised human being.

Is Arsene Wenger a member here? Jesus, hide the children!

If permabans are handed out to people for insulting (or telling the truth about) personalities in showbiz, sports, etc. there wouldn't be anyone here posting. Well done though.

But you keep on telling yourself that you behave like a civilised human being.
At least I'm not deceptive!

You've gone beyond insults and in to legally actionable libel. And why ? Because you don't like professional wrestling ?

Stop be ridiculous for five seconds and behave like a grown up. What link is there between a legal dispute between two large corporations and your libelous opinions about Arsene Wenger ?

Which were about as well founded as your opinions on football - i.e. not at all. Seriously, I've not come across someone with less of clue about the modern game than you. You're just a glory hunting armchair. I meant what I said, go watch whatever local team you have and learn about the game.

You're what we British fans call a WUM - Wind Up Merchant. No clue about the game, just blinkered, biased nonsense. You just sit there, completely oblivious to the failings of the team you claim to support. If anyone contradicts you, you throw insults around like a child. I'm not even going to allow you to claim you're a Chelsea fan anymore. That's too much of an insult to Chelsea.

Phew, thanks for that "ie" - I never would have guessed you disagreed with what I say.

Oh come on, you've got to have a chav friend or two that knows less than me!?

I'm sorry I don't measure up to your own biased preconceptions and what you define as a fan. Oh noes.

I hope that one day we can sit down and have an honest discussion about Arsenal's culture of failure and its boy loving manager without you resulting to personal insults and making yourself look bad.

You guys have a name for everything. That's awesome, the rest of the world is really behind in that regard.

This was probably the funniest thing you've ever said though:

You just sit there, completely oblivious to the failings of the team you claim to support.

Write 1,000 words about why Chelsea did not win the Premier League and Champions League this season despite the huge sums of money they've spent without referring to refereeing decisions or other clubs just being mean to them and not letting them win.

And then, after that, name five Chelsea players younger than John Terry who are products of Chelsea's youth system without looking at Wikipedia.

Oh, and if you feel that I have insulted you, then click the report button. That's what I'm encouraged to do. I'm sure the fact that you were once a mod will stand you in good stead. In fact, perhaps you should ask for your old job back. That way you can't even get warned accidentally.
