Flattered to have been included on the first page as an Arsenal fan without asking! Feel like I'm slowly being considered a #reg. Am I allowed 2 though? Brentford in the Championship are my local team, so I tend to go to as many games of theirs a season as I do Arsenal's. Or if that's totally unacceptable I'll see myself out...

And my obligatory predictions:

Premiership winner: Chelsea
Premiership top 4 (in order): Chelsea, Arsenal, Man City, Man United
And I'll give the rest of the top 10 in order a go: Everton, Tottenham, Liverpool, Newcastle, Crystal Palace, West Ham
Premiership relegated: Burnley, West Brom, Villa

1st Premiership manager sacked: Alan Irvine (West Brom)
Premiership top scorer: Aguero

La Liga winner: Barcelona
Bundesliga winner: Bayern Munich
Ligue 1 winner: PSG
Serie A winner: Juventus
Eredivisie winner: Ajax

Champions League winner: Bayern Munich
Europa League winner: Napoli (I may as well have just picked a name out of a hat)

The 23m deal for khedira is really great for us if it goes through. Thoughts?

Without wanting to tread on Sam's toes (as it's him editing the first post), if I'm allowed to support Man United AND West Brom, I think it should be OK.

Although West Brom are coming to Shrewsbury tomorrow, and I've booked tickets to the cinema instead, so clearly I'm a #plastic.

You guys are pathetic really.

I assume this is towards your other conversation and not ours


Also, why are most of you predicting Chelsea as the winner of the Premier League? Is it really that likely?

Not towards you no. PSV are just crap for even trying.

Chelsea winning is possible, but I don't view them as the most likely candidate. Guess we will have to wait till the transferseason ends to make decent predictions though.

While you're at it, add me under Chelsea. I asked you like 2 or 3 times last year but you probably missed it (or pretended to ) and I didn't bother to pm you.

To be fair though, it also happens with Newcastle/PL or general English pundit talk with me.

I've adapted by taking the piss most of the time. It's either Rapture or Neo biting. Raooos biting by implying he's above biting, or another of the less regulars throwing out a snarky comment, hoping it gets me on the defensive.

Considering a good argument is a decent way to spend the time, it's enjoyable. Not even trolling at this point, I'm letting the entire thread know exactly how I'll react.

It's going to be so much worse this season too. Now they have 3(potentially 4) world cup winners coming back to the squad, we'll have to hear how great podolski is, despite getting close to 0 minutes. How indispensable Ozil was, with easy to read graphics showing pointless stats. Ignoring he was shit and invisible the entire tournament. Oh, and how solid Mertesacker was, despite being dropped for the more crucial games.

Khedira's GOAT too, just because he is.

Probably the best squad in the PL by far, in terms of first team quality and depth.

Mourinho's a manager who knows how to squeeze results as well, seems likely.

Sam and Megano bitch, I reply, somehow that counts as 4 pages of Arsenal argument? In that case yes, half the last thread was arsenal talk considering you guys kept bitching. I don't believe the butthurt in you guys Sam and Megano, just shut up, talk about football and then the last 2 pages would just have had me and little boy discussing transferdealings in the Eredivisie.

It happens to me, so I'm sure it happens to others. If you (goons) are saying "just ignore it" as in, "ignore it and post something else not related to the discussion", I did that many times during the last thread and it just gets ignored and the Arsenal drivel about whether Wilshere would be better at LCM or RCM continues. There's no complaint from me on this point, that's just how it is



I'm not even trying to make a snarky point here...but don't you think people coming into the thread and seeing "PARDEW OUT" "MIKE ASHLEY SUCKS" and "MAYBE WE NEED MORE RBS/LBS LOL" is going to be just as annoying, if not more annoying than people discussing what position Wilshere plays in? Not complaining because you have just as much right to that as I have to post about Ramsey...but yeah.

Newcastle talk is so little these days, there's absolutely no comparison to the Arsenal The only Newcastle things that get posted is either me and SMH ranting about Pardew for like.. 3-4 posts max or a random team being posted and us laughing at how shit it is Unless someone asks something about nufc.. Or a player signs (but we've signed 3 already, dont think we need to worry about that again until January )

Quote by megano28

Dunno if you're trolling or not, but he is to be fair Could be even better playing abit further forward than he did under Ancelotti.

Khedira wasnt this player, but Real are really missing a good CDM (assuming Xabi is losing his legs now - which surely must be the case). Kroos wont do that job, James certainly wouldnt. If no one is bought in apart from the 2 mentioned I can see Modric being told to play there :|

I'm not bothering with any other predictions apart from Lambert will be the first manager sacked. If we get new buyers he's gone, if we don't he'll be gone by November because of the team we have.

"PARDEW OUT" "MIKE ASHLEY SUCKS" and "MAYBE WE NEED MORE RBS/LBS LOL"

If any of those 3 things are posted, it's either in a random one off post, or in the (like I said) 3-6 post max conversations me and SMH have about it. I cant remember the last time a Newcastle conversation (apart from when a game is on and everyone is watching) lasted a page (40ppp). In fact, I'd bet loaaaaaaaaaaaaads on the fact that it never did in the last thread.

That's why your argument is stupid, especially bringing up these huge and constant Newcastle conversations that dont exis:

That is the impression I have, but since I'm not in England and the press here, when it comes to international football, is extremely biased towards clubs that have portuguese players or managers (specially Mourinho and Ronaldo), I could very well be wrong. Hence why I was asking if the general feel was the same in England.

But doesn't Manchester City have better players? At least in the individual level?

That 10% is instigating 85% of the posts.

You're right, the problem is pretty obvious.

Depends what (else) City do in the transfer window and if they lose Yaya. That whole thing has gone a bit quiet, though he said he'd explain the whole birthday thing after the WC

Chelsea were kinda close last year, and they didnt even have a good striker. They've got one now, plus Fabregas, plus Courtois and.. yeah

I suggest you go back to the old thread and count. It has definitely been brought up more than once per month. But I guess that would go against your argument, so you'd rather ignore it. Yeah thought so. There really is no point in arguing with people with a narcissistic personality disorder.
