This. He is literally the last player there you could consider world class. Rest are either too young (Walcott, Wilshere) or just not good enough.

Too bad Arsenal dont have players to slip him or RVP through, really missing a Cesc out there tonight.

Arshavin is trying his best but thats not his best quality and Rosicky is slowing down everything for them :fp:

Hoping for goals in the second half :thumbsup:

RVP's been in good positions a couple of times, but he really didn't look sharp. Hoping for an Arsenal win

Btw, really liked Sessegnon for Sunderland earlier. The guys got excellent technique

That's not saying much, to be honest. He has been decent - but they need far more than this to be in a serious title-hunt.

RvP will score. But Newcastle might also.

hdcantona 13-08-2011 18:37

Obertan on for Newcastle...

another United reject in the premiership :proud:

More than that, he is their only proper goalscorer. Rest of their options (Chamakh etc) are plain shit

I feel opposite way with arsenal. The team lacks character until proven otherwise, IMO. I could be wrong but I think they will be in for some hard times this year with or without cesc/nasri.

Gervinho has been good though. Surprisingly good to me.

Nah, I watched him last year too, he will get better than this. He has the speed and dribbling ability to take on players with ease.

He will be one of the key players for them this season.

They will face hard times but it depends who they sign from here on. First mission is to get past Udinese and attract at least a few players. They look good in defense today but in the creative department they are lacking.

Players like RVP, Gervinho and Wilshere can carry this team forward but they will still be a cut below the top 3 imo. They will tussle with Pool for 4rth.

They could end up finishing as low as 6th, quite easily.

Obertan MOTM so far :o :o :o :o :o

that's what im thinking even if cesc stays. He's a little overrated to be honest (still a class player) but honestly, he doesn't give a fuck, and it's obvious. That's what matters.

Just sell him and sign someone who is actually capable of leading

I think he's a bit frustrating tbh. He beats his man all the time, but his final ball is always poor

Christian 13-08-2011 19:10

ROFL

Joey Barton, haha

That's the biggest dick move I've ever seen. What a hypocrite :D

Senatore_M84 13-08-2011 19:12

LOL JOEY BARTON!

God, if there is a hell, he's definitely going there

necromancer 13-08-2011 19:16

Joey Barton continuing to be a legend.

Ash 13-08-2011 19:33

I love Joey Barton

:proud:

Can we sign him on a special contract? You know, for games against Merda? :D

p.s. - Gervinho did deserve to get sent off (even tho Barton did too)

acmilan4ever 13-08-2011 19:33

How Barton stayed on the pitch there was beyond me.

Yes, i've noticed that in this game.

In France, when he was playing for Lille, he used to get in behind his opponent with ease and would have more time. Here he didnt get that today and probably wont get that but its an area which he can improve and must if he is to be successful. He was unfortunate to get in that silly tussle but he will come good for them.

Could happen, if Liverpool play well and a team like Spurs/AV/Everton play really well then anything is possible.

hdcantona 13-08-2011 19:34

Glad Barton wasn't sent off though since Song should have been sent off but wasn't. Balanced out in the end. Sort of.

I know they've been looking into it with football both Adam and Downing, as unspectacular as they may be, create ALOT of chances.

Don't think they haven't started employing it with football too. Add a transfer guru like comolli, it's all about balance.

I hate the Red Sox more than any sporting franchise in the world. Actually, I hate the entire city of Boston and Theo Epstein is an enormous tool. I am a bigger baseball fan than football fan, so this hatred is quite deep.

I hope all of them just simultaneously explode; I now hate Liverpool because of John Henry.

But alas, they do use SABR and sabermetrics, which have been overlooked far too much in every sport.

Joey Barton is the biggest tool in the premiership. How he hasn't been absolutely destroyed yet is beyond me. I want to see City vs. Newcastle this year and Barton make a late tackle on Craig Bellamy and see what happens. I imagine Bellamy will take off his spike and ram it through Barton's jugular.

Senatore_M84 13-08-2011 19:37

welp usc, i'm an oakland a's fan. Grew up it coliseum. Epstein is a tool. Wannabe billy beane. Give beane half his payroll and we win it all.

I assume you're a phils fan? I fucking hate the giants (and live in SF)
