RIP Bernard Woolley

Derek Fowlds sadly now gone at 82.
A wonderful understated character in Yes Minister and Yes Prime Minister still with some great lines.
For those of us with a few more miles on the clock also Mr Derek on The Basil Brush show.
Not the only work he did but probably the ones that will feature on all the obits.

Sensible transfers
These guys at Tifo regularly put good analyses out and this one sums up our needs and possible options.
Wouldn't surprise me in the slightest though if nobody comes in at all.

It's a viewpoint.
I don't even know if I'd call myself a Dr Who fan.
I enjoy it but I'm not obsessive about it. Frankly I couldn't tell you whether or not I'd seen any of the stuff he/she mentioned.

Something can have a moral but still be overly preachy about it.

Boring world if we all agreed.

I'm off to stress out whether Big Ben's gonna bong or not.

Yes and no.
The result wasn't but both actions were uncontrolled and reckless.

Anyway I'm taking much the same as you are.
Things still going in a positive direction.
Particularly a team that 'can't defend' doing a pretty good job of defending.

RE: [VIDEO] Arsenal: 2019/2020

Well that was a real mixed bag.
First 25 mins as frustrating as hell. Palace looked like they didn't want to be there and we couldn't muster more than a second gear shuffle to do anything about it until for a few brief seconds we hit third and walked through them for a goal.
If we'd taken more advantage of their disinterest we could have had more.
They suddenly realised that they maybe weren't as bad as they thought they were and started playing.

A bit of a flukey goal
Aubameyang rightly sent off for a real forwards tackle after an absolute age for a VAR review.. At least one by a Palace player that could have had red as well for a similar hack.
Still holding our own and attacking with 10 men. Could've won it but for the Palace goal keeper not cutting his nails and edging Pepe's shot onto the post.
Liked Artetas attacking substitution, Martinelli for Ozil, as well.

Do they seriously think the press/media are going to say 'Oh they're not royal anymore' and leave them alone.
Quite possibly the reverse.

RE: [VIDEO] The All New Doctor Who Thread...

I'm not enough of a Who nerd to get on board with all the negating of previous plots etc but...
For me those two episodes were far more engaging than the entire previous series and any attempt to pick holes in story of a time travelling, regenerating main character?
Really?
Let's just stay on board and see how they plan to resolve it.

RE: [VIDEO] Arsenal: 2019/2020

Watched the first half and listened to the second half.
How we went in at half time not being down two goals is a source of wonder.

"Also, how did Xhaka go that entire game without getting booked?"

Maybe Arteta is getting them to foul like Man City as a matter of course so that refs just think it's what they do.
Two wins in a row and two clean sheets. I'll take that.
Lacazette was asked what Arteta said at half time and replied 'He shouted a lot'

I would like to make a claim for dedication to the cause for having put up with both Danny Murphy and Chris Sutton during the match.

If it starts a war or enough of a conflict he can then start mouthing off that this is no time for an election with the country under threat.

RE: [VIDEO] Arsenal: 2019/2020

Watched this earlier on.
In just the first couple of week he's got more connection and communication with his team and the fans than Emery managed in 18 months. That may be slightly unfair due to the language problem, but only slightly.

Torriera trying to lift Sokratis after the goal is an image that stays with you.

"He also said they weren't fit enough yet, also interesting. Makes you wonder what Emery's idea of training was."

Three podcasts now from different people with a good few contributors plus numerous tweets all saying the same thing 'unfit' 'not fit enough' 'considerably off the pace' only capable of 45, 50, 70...minutes'

Yet I remember when Emery took over he made the same complaints of the squad and initiated double training sessions.

I don't understand how we got from there to here in 18 months as training levels and fitness surely don't necessarily relate to how good or bad a coach is at tactics and systems.

RE: [VIDEO] Arsenal: 2019/2020

Just seen the MOTD highlights after following the match on the club audio.
The video confirmed the audio in that there was maybe one or two moments when I was worried but most of the match we had them on toast.

I think this is a bit more than a new manager bounce as well. All the players seem to be right on board with what he's trying to do.
Xhaka it seems now wants to stay which may not be to everyone's choice but what a difference it makes when you get players doing what they're good at rather then square pegs in round holes.
Torriera probably man of the match and has a huge smile after his shot just went wide.
Let's see if we can get Auba to stay and maybe sign another contract.
Apparently we've told Leeds they can't keep Nketiah all season so we've got a replacement if only a young and raw one. Plus a bit of intel on how they play before Monday?

Not bad defending from a team that 'can't defend' and have so many out at the moment. Probably as happy with the clean sheet as the win.

RE: Whats happened since you joined? 18 years today...

Christmas day 2003.
No doubt looking for a hack for a long dead player.

Less hair, possibly less waist though it's creeping back.
My youngest would've been 7 and he now blocks out the sun when he walks past, fit not fat.

Same house, different job though as I've always been self employed that's arguable.

Sh*t's beginning to wear out and slow down but in pretty good nick for my age.

So let's see if we can all make it to 2021 in one piece.
