You'd need to support that assertion with some, you know, statistics. Still, if that's what you choose to believe then so be it.

I did. See the page I linked to.

You might have said I proved correlation but not causation. Happy to discuss that if you like. But that might be even more pointless.

Nobody speaks about the performance of Rob Holding today - he is English, he is 20 years old, you should be happy. But I am sorry he didn't cost £55m.

"We don't speak about the performances anymore and I think that is not right."

Well feel free to stick yer hand in yer pocket you tight fisted c*nt!

That's my point! Bet we get 3.5 to 4 mill tops if he reaches his full potential. In this day and age we were robbed! He looked pretty good today. French fella beside him (can't spell his name) was immense though!

Ten? As in "one more than nine?"

That looks to be the second largest aggregate in CL...

That's what I love, when you've actually been gubbed by that many that they have to spell it out so that the viewer knows it's not a typo. :lol:

I visited a couple of Arsenal sites last night for some cheery light-heartedness. Despite three consecutive(?) 5-1 drubbings, the only difference between the teams was the inappropriate red card and the fact Bayern are "diving bastards"...

"With victories over Ipswich and Brighton in the FA Cup, the Imps have beaten more Championship clubs in 2017 than actual Championship teams Rotherham and Bristol City.

And they've beaten the same number of Championship clubs in 2017 as have Championship teams Ipswich, Wolves and Birmingham City."

Outstanding. Come on, The Imps,

Thought they were outstanding for 45 mins. Ran out of legs but that wasn't for off Arsenal's first choice XI. The gap between Lincoln and Arsenal is only one goal more than that between Arsenal and Bayern.

I was walking through Holloway this morning just after midday and assumed the game was a 12.30ko there were that many half-cut in Lincoln shirts. The did well to make it 5.30 and looked like they had a belting time.

This Emirates Cup everyone has been taking the piss out of them for years for pretending it's a proper trophy, didn't realise quite how tinpot it is.

Arsenal and Sevilla both played two games, Arsenal won one, and lost one (to Sevilla). Sevilla won both their games. Guess who won the trophy?
