Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Wasn't Coppell close to resigning last season? Seems like a decent bloke, but perhaps burnt out by a promotion season followed by two long, hard years in the premiership.

The press have talked him something rotten. You'd think no one else would come up with the 'tactical masterstroke' of putting on the club's best striker when a winning goal was needed with 20 minutes to go.
During the match itself, Jon Champion sounded so emotionally excited, I swore he was going to cry.

Yeah, Wenger and Real Madrid sounds like pretty much the worst fit imaginable.

But they might offer him a shitload of money, so who knows...

Maybe he'll do an "Agent Wenger". Go to Madrid, sign Adebayor, Eboue, Diaby and Silvestre for a combined €200 million, sell Higuain, both Diarras, Sneijder and Castillas to Arsenal for a tenner, then pop back to Ashburton Grove with a bag full of duty free booze and fags.

Sadly, I have to say Donetsk deserved to win.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Now all the seasons are coming to a finish. I just want to say something about Senderos.

This guy is the ultimate fail. He is the definition of a walking disaster and a swiss cheese in defense. His ridiculously clumsy tackles make you want to bash his head in with a bat. His granny pace would be fine in Serie A if not for the fact that his positioning is still horrendous after 6 months playing with Paolo Maldini. This makes me question whether or not he has any functioning brain cell in his head. Fuck did our scouts even watch him play for Arsenal? I mean he can't take on any defender 1 on 1 without being nutmegged. Wenger you can have him back.

At this point I'm wondering if TrekBBS has merged with the Arsenal forums I visit.

Listen, we knew he was crap. Why do you think we loaned him out ? It's called revenge for nicking Flamini off of us.

Fabregas cleared in spitting row.

Hull should get a hefty fine for this, at least. In fact, throwing around these lies just because they lost should carry a points deduction.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

That's just as bad. They haven't been able to prove the allegations, but equally there's no evidence Brown made the whole thing up. Best just to drop it and move on.

Fabregas was not just cleared, he and Arsenal were told that there was no case to answer.

Amongst other things, Hull, also accused Arsenal if trying to influence the referee at half time which I consider to be a serious allegation, one they were unable to prove.

Hull's behaviour during the whole affair has shown up the complete lack of class and respect they have. From Brown saying that Arsene has never shaken his hand (YouTube disagreed) to the bizarre comments about how Fabregas was dressed on the night in question.

What we're not even allowed to comment on Arsenal players fashion sense (or lack thereof) anymore?

It's well known that Arsenal players have no fashion sense, but that's not really relevant to Hull's case against him.

That said, Mr. Brown can hardly talk given that I've seen him wearing bright orange shirts to match his fake tan.

Oh yeah, I remember the 3 weeks when he was out manager...he didn't half wear some odd stuff...and what's the thing with the tan, what's he got to hide! (or is he just naturally orange perhaps?)
