Take a google around the clips of it.
Thought it was deliberate live and even more convinced of it now.
Knew where he was and swung the leg round harder and wider deliberately.
Not coming to blows over it, we'll agree to differ.

Don't blame Nketiah at all. Genuine attempt for the ball and you just have to accept sometimes that will happen. As I said doubt the appeal will succeed, I think they're just making a point.

RE: [VIDEO] Arsenal: 2019/2020

Still annoyed about that match.
Could/should have been 3.0 up by half time, still not taking our chances.
If Nketiah was a red then Vardy shouldn't have been on the pitch after the foul on Mustafi.
A lot to be positive about so let's see if that lot want to keep rowing amongst each other on Sunday.

The club are appealing the red card but I don't hold out much hope.

RE: [VIDEO] Arsenal: 2019/2020

Looks like Guendouzi may have played his last match for us.
He's been training on his own lately and there's very little time for him to rectify the situation even if he wanted to.

There's a good player in there but someone else will get the benefit if he sorts himself out as he get's a bit older.

Four matches and four wins without him as well.

"They failed to mention that they were driving on the wrong side of the road & then didn't pull over until they reached their home."

I'll admit to not following this particularly closely but let's wait to hear the details as 'the wrong side of the road' was not mentioned to them during the stop. They only found out about it from Twitter.
They also claim they were driving down single width roads, which I would take to mean cars parked both sides and finding a gap if you had to pass another vehicle.

As an added fact, according to the Met's own stats you are four times more likely to be pulled over if you're black.

RE: [VIDEO] Arsenal: 2019/2020

A very relaxed finish for an 18 year old, in fact for any year old.
Nice to see Laca breaking his dry spell as well.

Not sure how far back your memory might go but in the last 4 matches, small sample I know, I'm getting a distinct George Graham vibe.
One nil to the Arsenal and a definite 'Okay we're in front see what you can do about it' to the opposition.

Sunday might determine whether we need to blow the dust off St Totteringhams tomb though they've got an easier run in than us.

RE: Browser change

After swapping to Edge about three weeks ago where everything went smooth as, with everything working seamlessly, suddenly yesterday it reverts to it's default settings and signs me out of every damn site.

So I'm now getting a series of emails from everyone and his mother when I sign back in flagging up this strange new sign in, which is me.

Any idea why it would have done this? There was no notification that any update of either Windows or Edge had taken place.

Well that was enjoyable.
Another gift from a goalkeeper
Xhaka getting a nosebleed.
An assist for Auba's second worthy of Gerrard
and low and behold we have a new player who can bang them in from a distance.
We actually look like a team now we're up and running again.

All rounded off by Chelsea losing to West Ham.

Oh and Saka's signed on the dotted line.
Happy days.

RE: [VIDEO] Coronavirus, anyone starting to get worried?

One plus point last I heard they are optimistic about our vaccine trial and if successful they could have 40 million doses by January which will be 20 million to be treated as it's two doses a fortnight apart.
NHS and key workers take priority and then UK population before it's made more widely available.

Is anyone keeping a running total of how much this bunch of clowns is wasting? The cost of Brexit has already exceeded our total contributions to the EU since joining and it ain't anywhere near over yet.

RE: [VIDEO] Arsenal: 2019/2020

Yay into the semis.
Against City.

If we can keep everyone on the pitch, in one piece and play like the first 20 mins of the league game last week.

Last two matches I'm getting a little bit of George Graham's 'One nil to the Arsenal' vibe. We seem to be settling for the one goal if we go in front and letting the opposition wear itself out on us.
A dangerous tactic without better players than we have but can't argue with the results.

Unsurprisingly Paddy Power have us as the outsiders of the four 9/1 if you fancy a tickle.

RE: [VIDEO] Coronavirus, anyone starting to get worried?

Cock up not conspiracy.

We've done this to ourselves. We are now governed by social media. How many of those now most in the public eye are famous for being famous or have leveraged a minor talent into a major asset.

Trump. American Apprentice and general, always on screen, blowhard.
Johnson. Journalist. HIGNFY, comedy relief and also always on screen bloviator.

Personality and public profile is now valued above ability.
Gove actually states We've had enough of experts. Yet now he, Johnson and co assert we are following 'The Science' until the science becomes inconveniently different to the direction they wish to go.

Both the USA and the UK had a plan in place to cope with this epidemic but in the case of the USA threw it out of the window because anything with Obama's fingerprints on it was, in their eyes, evil and in the UK was just ignored as irrelevant or inconvienient.

I'm sorry I don't buy any conspiracy theory attached to any of this as I don't think any of them have the intelligence or ability to even find 'Conspire' in the dictionary.

Seems there's an awful lot we don't know.
Never mind have you got it but how about have you had it.
If you have can you get it again or are you immune.
Why do some get it and show no symptoms.
Why, irrespective of health or age, will it kill one person and just stop the other smelling the roses or tasting his chips.

This is not me complaining in any way. I know there's people working overtime trying to answer these questions. 
I would like a little more scientific commentary though. Rather than Johnson and co casting about not knowing what to do but telling us to do it anyway.

With a deep sigh and a high degree of resignation I'll probably waste my vote

Reason?
Electoral reform. I live in one of the safest Labour seats so my votes worth nothing in the present system.

RE: [VIDEO] Arsenal: 2019/2020

So we won a match.
A lovely bit of opportunism from Nketiah and Willock following in and never giving up for the second.

Can't say I was that happy with giving them so much of the ball in the second half but they didn't trouble our goal that often and Martinez was good enough when they did.
I'm not that unhappy with Martinez taking the spot while Leno's out. He's a decent enough keeper and who knows how he might improve with some regular games.

If we manage to get Europa League then fine but I'm not going to lose any sleep if we don't.

A group of left wing, presumably Corbynistas, wanted to meet with Starmer over the sacking and got a firm no.
