    Yeah. He looked quick enough, didn't he.

    I am beyond annoyed. 100% of the time that's a free kick. How do I know? BECAUSE I'VE BEEN MOANING ABOUT IT FOR ABOUT 30 YEARS. But not this time, because fuck you Newcastle.

    Also, can Jamie catarrh just die of something already and get off my fucking TV. His fucking voice makes my ears bleed.

    I heard half the crowd turned up in new shirts with 'WHO?' on the back in his honour.

    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?
    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.
    Not sure about Spurs, he plays very similar to Dele but he'd get into everyone elses, especially Liverpools. If the Ox can make it there...

    I thought he looked a big talent a few years ago.

    Not kicked on.
    If we could take even just 1% of his talent and direct it towards convincing him he isn't going to get crippled whenever any physical contact threatened to mess his hair, he possibly would have.
    He's pretty much the most frustrating player I've had to endure at NUFC, and there have been a few.

    He's alright. Never been anything special imo, good player but very rarely influences a game a huge amount.

    @QotSAfan

    I wouldn't have Ramsey anywhere near Liverpool's midfield. I'd probably swap him for Lallana but he's like our 6th choice, so

    According to Keown Arsenal used to rock up to stadiums playing Simply the Best during their Invincibles season.

    Rio and Lampard's reaction says it all.

    Yeah, must've just been a different playlist in the FA Cup, League Cup and Champions League.

    Always wanted someone to try this kickoff. Guess it needs more practice.

    Hah. I would suggest they trap the ball between stomachs/knees as they shuffle.

    Iíve never really understood what position Ramsey is best in but I wouldnít put him ahead of Dele or Eriksen.
    I suspect, like many Arsenal youth in the latter era of Wenger, he suffered from Arsene's laissez faire approach; letting him do whatever he wants. It also meant he never defined himself either. Unsurprisingly, his best performances have always come when given strict instructions and a role for 90mins.

    I suspect he's best in a 3-man midfield.

    I wanted Conte to stay and even wanted Mourinho to be given more time, but Sarri I'm not so sure about.

    His substitutions are hilarious. 2 nil down and he brings on Zappacosta when Hudson-Odoi is available. What has the kid got to do to get some game time?

    I'd prefer Zola until the end of the season at this rate.

    Scolari is probably a heavy favourite given Chelsea's hiring process.

    Love stories like this, and often wonder why some of the lesser players at younger ages don't try their hand at the MLS instead.

    Decent level, usually in places with better weather, better living standard, probably get paid more, and at worst, you fall out with a university degree.

    Two window transfer ban for Chelsea.

    Chelsea will appeal and the delay the ban. Expect a big transfer splurge in the summer. And above all, keep Hudson-Odoi.

    Spurs have done just fine with a two window transfer ban

    They'll have known this is coming and as said, will delay the ban past this coming window anyway. I suspect Sarri was brought in to do a big rebuild with that in mind, and then see them through a period with no transfers as someone who can proper develop a team over time.

    The dilemma they'll have now is whether they stick with that plan, or try and bring someone else to do that job.

    Also if Abrhamovitch is on the fence over whether he can be bothered to keep the project going or not, this is probably another nail in that coffin.
