    I like Higgy's song, it might catch on.

    It’s just so enjoyable seeing that house of cards collapse.

    It wasn't just that. Sarri seems to think Kante will be a decent AM. Maybe he and Mourinho got confused between Pogba and Kanye, the daft racists

    It's amazing Chelsea have ticked along this far over the years, they are kinda like those big Spanish clubs, they might have ups and downs but generally play much the same more or less. Since it's a top 6 going for 4 champions league places it's at risk of falling apart now. Parachute the Hiddink.

    It was curtains when they lost to Arsenal. Arsenal getting a clean sheet against Chelsea. You know you’ve fucked up.

    Ramsey on £400,000 at Juve seems like absolute insanity.

    At least puts it into context for those people who keep moaning that we should keep him. How do people propose we keep a player who is guaranteed a league medal and CL last eight place AND £400k per week?

    Erm...erm...we’ve got gunnersaurus?

    I suspect he wouldn't have needed 400,000 had the management team sorted him out promptly in the summer of 2017.

    Lmao @ Juventus...

    Ramsey at 400k!? He is 28, surely he is passed the great promise he has been billed as for the 11 years at arsenal.

    Sure he is good player but he wouldn't start for any team in the top 4 (excluding injuries).

    Do Juve need him that bad, or do they just have a shit tonne of money to burn?

    Free transfer probably inflates the wages somewhat. He must have had quite a few offers to still get that though.

    About 80 million all in for 4 years. Not the worse value if consider the dross that gets bought and sold for 40 million + and wages on top. If Hazard moves he would probably cost 80 million or more and 400K + a week on top which would be like 160 million + all in for example over 4 years.

    He's our highest scoring midfielder. He's scored 2 FA Cup winners. Perhaps hasn't quite lived up to the lofty expectations when he arrived, but that tends to happen when you have your leg snapped into a million pieces. He probably wouldn't get into City's XI but I think he would the others, no question.

    I’ve never really understood what position Ramsey is best in but I wouldn’t put him ahead of Dele or Eriksen.

    I wouldn't have wanted to make that call. Iirc, he wanted to double his money up to 200k. Is he worth that? I dunno, especially since arsenal, are skint.

    Does losing him make arsenal a worse team? Yeah. How much would it cost to replace or better him? Probably near 200k a week plus 30m transfer fee...

    Arsenal aren't going to be good again for a while.

    Invest in youth.

    The problem is then the top players they've got who would want parity. So you have maybe three times that a week or THEY fuck off.

    You consider smashing your wage structure for your best player. Not sure who that is, but it wasn't Ramsey.

    How much is gunnersaurus on

    They gave him 80k a week. At the time he wanted parity with Yaya Sonogo.

    Not sure Ramsay would get in our side. He is better than Matic and Herrera but they are very different players to him. So he would need to replace Pogba and that wouldn't be happening.

    @Dougs highest scoring? Of all time? Cos in the last 5 seasons in the league, played 129 (22 this year) scored 21 (2 this year) assisted 28 (6 this year) .

    As I say he ain't crap (far from it), but it is hardly world on fire stuff. These are his 5 primes years 23 to 28. Only going to peter out from here.

    So it appears you're now okay to put your arms around a keeper's neck while jumping with him.

    It'll be interesting to see how other keepers in the league handle this new level of protection, given that till now you merely had to breathe on them to get a free kick.

    5th minute of 4 minutes of stoppage time as well. Cunt bubble. At least the new boy looked lively when he came on.
