He claims he doesn't use self tan or a tanning bed. So naturally orange, then.

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.
You loaned him out only because our scouts were apparently too brain dead to see rubbish as rubbish.

We didn't nick Flamini off you guys. Your owners were simply too cheap to pay him.

I was kidding. Calm down. I agree with you, Senderos is rubbish.

I was surprised how rubbish he actually turned out to be. He always looked steady enough for his country, and I thought it was the pace of the English game that was throwing him off. Turns out, there was more to it.

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.
Fabergas is a spitter though, so you can hardly blame Hull. Where there's smoke....

Shameful that he's your captain.

There was a point where he looked half-decent. Wasn't he in the defence that season when you got to the Champions League final, only to be replaced with Campbell in the actual final?

He did always look totally befuddled, even when he was tasked with some basic defending, like clearing his lines. It's quite shocking that he seems to have got worse after half a season playing with Maldini and being coached by Tassotti.

He replaced him in the semi, IIRC. Scored the opening goal in the Final, so he earned his pay I guess. However, Cashley replaced Flamini at left back in the actual Final after Flamini had played there admirably. Some speculate that "insult" was never forgiven, and was the end of his time at AFC.

Wolfsburg wins the championship in Germany. *puke*

I hope Bayern still loses their CL spot, although that doesn't appear likely at the moment.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

An oldie but a goldie that one, isn't it?

I'm glad Newcastle went down - I know Hull are arseholes and everything, but man I'd rather get to see one of the 'big' boys go down, and I can go see them next season. Anyway, I don't want the permatan ruining the look of our new stadium just yet - let us grow into it for a season first.

Thoroughly good ending to a thoroughly good and open (everywhere except the top) PL season. Fulham in Europe - who'd have predicted that? I had them about 11th, nowhere near relegation, but Hodgson really has done them wonders. Pulis and Moyes have done amazingly this season too.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

I'll be laughing like a drain for much of the summer, but come August, I'll rather have the black and white circus in the league than Hull. As Joe Kinnear would say, Phil Brown is a cunt.

I'm feeling quite smug that Fulham have done as well as I thought, despite people (Fulham fans, mostly) telling me they would go down this season. Though to be fair, there has been precious little quality in the middle of the table.

Here's something interesting - some of our predictions before the first PL balls were kicked http://www.trekbbs.com/showthread.php?t=50336&page=20

I'm quite chuffed I got three teams in the right position... but man were we all suckered by Portsmouth or what?
