    Disagree Kimtoon. Arsene has bought too many average players who come up short when they play real teams.

    not much heart in them though mate it has to be said.

  2. great result. 3 hard games and we managed them superbly.

    Its been a while since we’ve had an organised back four 😛

    Sad to say but i think this spells the end for Mitro. Had high hope for this season with him dropping a division but he just doesnt cut it… he should of played a big role in these big game..
    Great heart and passion but doesnt read the game as he should.

  3. Disappointed that we didn’t win last night but if you had offered me 7 points before the last three games I would have bitten your hand off.

  4. I can see why Reading have the best home record. I think they pushed us harder that Brighton & Huddersfield – but then they also had those games to analyse and get an idea of how we would approach it.

    I agree with those saying 7pts from those 3 away games is an excellent return. They were also 3 solid performances defensively and that was really pleasing to see as well.

  5. We always seem to front up when we play the better teams in the div it’s the lower teams we really need to kick ass but it just seems we struggle against them,is it a attitude problem?,or is it they tend to lift their game because it’s Newcastle

  6. Just watched the highlights and it seemed to me we did enough to have won it – except for lady luck taking a back seat this time. With the kind of luck we had in the last two wins we would have come home with all 3 points again. Not really disappointed as it’s all gone a little flat after last week, the tensions gone with us within touching distance now.

  7. I see Colback was his normal nightmare against Reading again how the hell he gets a game beats,we have done really well in the last three games and only improved when he went off in two of them games and went on to win

  8. Just watching SSN and had a little chuckle at Lee Clark being on the short list for manager of the month.

    All this shit Wenger is getting is bollocks now though – the media are hounding him out – running a vote for Wengers worst defeat ever. It’s just wrong imo.

    Agree mate, they may not of won the league in some time but he delivers them top 4 every season. The fans want them more competitive though which I can understand given their income.

    Right couple of issues with this site, as I type this the print is tiny ( everything else is normal size ) it posts normal size too, just isn’t when I type ???? typing on other sites and on my search bar is normal size. Also taking forever too type this post and having problems scrolling down page, really jumpy . Anyone else have this going on?

    That Barca game was just unreal,PSG were in panic

    Ice They did have the benefit of a “home” ref. Still made it exciting for those who were there.

  14. Kim – I had problems yesterday too. However, got to say the site’s been a lot better since the storm of protests a while back. It’s possible the main problems and glitches come from it being a WordPress blog and not a full website.

    Is Fulham a banana skin approaching or will my prediction of not losing another game hold out?

    Georgio – Shef Wed & Leeds will prove a tough challenge too I think mate.
    I can’t see us going the rest of the season unbeaten personally – and as daft as it sounds, I kinda hope we don’t. I don’t want to go up over confident, coz next season will be a lot more difficult.
    Promotion will give confidence, but I don’t know that forgetting the taste of defeat is a good thing or not?!.

  17. Just thinking of players for next season. I would love to see us offer Hull money for Harry Maguire & Andy Robertson.
    But forwards wise – do we think Bony is done now or worth a second chance?. His best days were obviously at Swansea – when he had Shelvey supplying him. Could he get back to his best by reuniting him with Shelvey – he’s on 28 and maybe City would consider another loan move as he’s been on loan to Stoke this season.

  18. it’s a pity we didn’t sign Conor Hourihane from Barnsley before Villa got their mits on him, he has 10 assists this season, more than any other Championship player, Shelvey and Ritchie have 7

  19. Sharpy – I would like us to stay unbeaten. Next season will see a different team and a much bigger challenge.
    As for players – Bony’s worth a shout, so is Bojan. I liked Mooy last week (on loan from City) too. Maguire apparently is a good prospect. Sturridge? Syggurdesen? Renato Sanchez on loan from Bayern? There’s probably a load of others I haven’t thought of and certainly abroad there will be. HTL!

  21. Couple of reports suggesting we could go back for Ben Osbourne at Forest in the summer.
    I’ve seen him a couple of times and he does look canny, but still early to say if he’s good enough for the PL I reckon – still they seem to rate him like (if true)

  22. Could be worth considering looking at loaning Rashford or Ianacho next season as well if Man Utd do go for Griezman and City linked with PEA.

    The guy I would go for is Billing he’s young and gave M/City a right tough game in the cup game and broke everything up and drove his side on,City only came on when they took him off to save him for game against us

    you must have missed the city game mate he was the stand out player,he plays for Hudders,dont worry KIM will keep you right she knows the game 😆 😆

  27. Billings did really well against City but not so hot against us. Kid’s only 19 and for me not yet what you need for a PL midfield.

    Happy Anniversary Rafa!!!!
