Re: The General Footy Thread
Allow me to comfort you in your time of need BF. Firstly, I completely agree with your point about buying the title. It's been pretty much agreed you don't win fuck all in the modern game unless you spend and Arsenal have been the butt of those jokes for years. Now the Gunners are in a healthier financial position I'm sure they are only too pleased to join the gravy train which gave rise to most of United's success over the years, and placed City and Chelsea in loftier positions than their previous runt status deserved. If you can't beat em, join em. Heard that one?
Secondly, my point about Eto's shiteness was in direct reference to Bendtner's complete lack of value whatsoever and how the strength in depth argument has some obvious glaring flaws.
Walcott top scorer last season and England regular, sure thing for the World Cup if fit. No issue there. Wilshere already playing more games regularly than previous form would suggest, scorer of arguably the best team goal of the season already, England key man for World Cup and more talent in his turds than Cleverly could dream of. No issue there. Flamini spent several productive years in Italian football, arrived back seasoned and more disciplined, tactically aware, with more galvanised leadership qualities. Widely considered the most astute 'purchase' of the close season next to Ozil, and he didn't cost a thing.
Isn't it great to have Henry Winter back after his sabbatical?
