    As did I. Will watch it again on way back from Japan. Really intrigued to watch it knowing what happens.

    Football: dropping clangers and scoring bangers

    Your weekly reminder that Emery is a shit manager and Arsenal are a shit team. Yet another game where they have less than 10 shots and less than 2 shots on goal. Can't wait for Arteta.

    Another game, another poor performance. 7 shots for Arsenal, one on target compared to 15 from Guimaraes, 4 on target. I don't even miss watching Arsenal play these days and that has to be the biggest indictment against Emery's style for me.

    Manager made that choice. There are others he could have chosen. That being said, from all reports, Xhaka is loved in the locker room and his recent actions towards the fans has been bubbling for awhile since the fans have been horrible (do not check his social media).

    Winning the Europa League is different then maintaining consistent success in the PL over the course of a long season. His tactics, which basically attempts to identify the opponents strength and neutralize it, has not worked and worse, has given Arsenal no style of their own to impose on teams. They are outplayed and outshot every game, have no fluidity to their side, are passive in their attack and defense and have shown no improvement in the time that he’s been there. And worst of all, an absolute bore to watch. Not only that but the rumors of his inability to communicate and connect with his players is getting more and more pronounced, a problem that he has had at other teams. Players don’t seem to understand what Emery wants from them and that’s an issue. As for transfers, they’ve brought in enough. They do need more players but this squad is good enough for top 4 in a capable managers hand and I don’t think Emery has shown he is that with this team. Only reason Arsenal has done ok this year has been individual moments of brilliance from his strikers and that is highly unreliable as they are finding out lately.

    Don’t want Mourinho even if it means Emery being sacked. Fucking hate him. Still Emery should be sacked for having a healthy squad and getting outplayed by everyone. That’s some tactics right there.

    Emery is the best.

    Dude is a CF, don’t care what he thinks he is.

    Martinelli is a player.
  10. File this under obvious.
  11. My point is it doesn't matter. If they defend Vindman but completely ignore the substance what he's saying because "impeachment process", then it's more a talking point to show support for the military more than anything else.
  12. Liz Cheney then goes on to complain about the impeachment process and more or less find it invalid so who gives a fuck what Liz Cheney thinks.

    It's unreal. Just hate this shit so much, especially given last week, Saka got taken down clearly in the box, same level of contact as Zaha, and it was totally cool. Every week, something new yet always the same result.

    Arsenal just had a goal taken away from them that makes zero sense. I don’t understand.
  15. Graham did that a long time ago. This is just one more step down the path, especially given they are using the same rules created by Gowdy/Pompeo and signed by Boehner in 2015.
