Would Arteta have made the same signings?

Derek Taylor
Posted 09/09/2020

For those who don't bother to read my oft regarded 'negative' posts, I have to say, right away, that I would much have preferred our Club's leaders to have gone for young Arteta rather than 'Grandad Carlo'.

The Good, the Bad and the Handsome

Tony  Everan
Posted 08/09/2020

If you’ve tuned in to hear about the timeless refulgence of Gomes’s mane, the oiled sculpture of James’s six pack, or the pristine glacial rock pools that are Sigurdsson’s eyes, I’m afraid you will be disappointed.

One bright light (and it could have been two)

Phil (Kelsall) Roberts

The solution to marginal VAR calls: no lines!

Michael Kenrick
Posted 06/08/2020

It seems the problem with marginal VAR calls is not the principle that players shouldn't be punished for having odd body parts ruled against for being mere millimeters offside. That is what has riled fans of the game, seeing the virtual lines used on...
