Has anyone else been listening to this Arsenal press conference? It's the biggest load of sickly gush I've ever heard. There was absolutely no point to it other than for Gazidis to tell Wenger how much he's in love with him. Blimey. No wonder lots of Arsenal fans are miffed with the club if that's all the info they will give them on a pretty monumental day for the club and more importantly, the fans of the club. It was more like a eulogy. He will have plenty of tributes, the majority of which were valid 15 years ago. This is just pure hubris.

Arsene Wenger will be missed! His invincible, still the best in PL era!

Agree4 Disagree1

I have huge respect for the man but the best in the PL era is going a little too far mate. As much as it pains me to say it, it has to be Fergie with such a title.

20 Apr 2018 23:51:12
No disrespect Salah but the invincible's earned their name and they still aren't sharing it.

After they'd won the league they had a dead rubber vrs Everton I think, thought they'd ease up, Jesus masterclass 4/ 5 nill.

Fergie may have been the best manager in the modern era, but that Arsenal team was the best I’ve seen since Liverpool’s heyday. It was magnificent and fully deserved that invincibles title.

Arsene was also a massive boost to the PL and the style of play he brought was a big boost just as globalisation of the game happened. I think it shouldn’t be underestimated his contribution to making the PL what it is today (same for Fergie as much as it pains me to say it) .

{Ed0333's Note - I echo those sentiments wholeheartedly mate great post.

If we lose to roma or even in the final and finish fifth, is that an unsuccessful season? It will feel like it I know but a serious European showing?

Agree0 Disagree2

20 Apr 2018 14:21:40
why are you so worried about missing out on the top 4? If we beat Chelsea we are in. If not we need to win 2 out of the other 3. seems ok to me.

The other side of it is Chelsea haven't been their consistent best like in previous years. This season they could drop points to anyone.

20 Apr 2018 17:40:57
Yes that assumes they win all their games.
Also, we're ahead of Spurs!

Hi All,

I wanted to gauge everyone opinion on the 'Safe Standing' debate that is going on at the moment, I have not seen any posts previously about this but may have missed.

Obviously due to the recent tragic history I am sure that there will be some fans that will be against standing in the stadium but also many that understand that the new plans are a long way for the terraces that used to exist. I for one am in favour of stand again in grounds, if it is down in a safe manor which I believe will not be a problem in the current system where crowd control and seat allocation is a lot better.

I will not be offended by anyone who disagrees with me, the families lost loves one on that day will never forget what happened and that pain will never go away from the Club and Fans.

Opinions Please.

{Ed001's Note - I have not put this on others for any reason other than I am not convinced this is a subject to 'banter' about, for obvious reasons.}

It’s a no from me for a number of reasons but the obvious reason should be enough in itself.

20 Apr 2018 17:29:57
I don’t actually understand what the benefit is of being able to stand all game?

I don’t think it will have anything to do with atmosphere. I’ve been at anfield plenty of times with insane atmospheres (going back about 13 years now) .

The fans singing makes the atmosphere and if you’re stood up for 90 mins really doesn’t need to make a difference.

Add to that what happened to the 96, I don’t care how “safe” it is perceived, it feels almost disrespectful to consider it.

20 Apr 2018 19:56:04
People stand in stadiums for the same reason you stand at a concert or at a party. I feel more inclined to dance and have fun, sing and get involved if I stand up. That is the reason. Sitting is not a natural thing to do, aside from periods of rest. I don't believe most people go to football matches to rest and if they do, that is probably what is contributing, I repeat, contributing to poor atmospheres in larger stadiums with more transient spectators. I for one don't see any problem with safe standing, provided there is the same space per spectator, as with seating, with a rail behind and in front of everybody. Surges can not occur at all in that environment. However, I fully understand why certain clubs (including ours), or at the very least, certain fans would never even consider it, for respectful reasons, if nothing else.

20 Apr 2018 21:13:58
A big no from me.

19 Apr 2018 15:17:33
Are the youth teams and u23s taught to play the same way as the first team with regards to the high press and closing down spaces? I think we have been so amazing to watch the last couple of years that I don't really want to see us play any other way when Jurgen gets off! Be nice to see SG take on the same concept when he inevitably becomes first team manager.

Anyone else notice how far the women's game has improved in the last decade? I remember watching it, wondering if the ref fancied the cf, realising she does when she let's 3 more than dubious goals stand, and thinking "I'd get in that team, no problem" Doncaster bells were massive along with arsenal.

Now when I watch I am very impressed, its actually like watching football rather than watching women with big tits running. There is still a long way to go but yeah, well impressed.

I think they should play on a slightly smaller pitch and with a slightly lighter ball. Make the goals a bit smaller too.

Is this the most derogatory post I’ve ever seen.

19 Apr 2018 19:17:23
100% it is Jak.

19 Apr 2018 19:17:47
Looks like equality and certain people’s attitudes have a long way to go as well 🙈.

19 Apr 2018 19:27:38
It's actually very funny. Medieval thought.

19 Apr 2018 20:34:15
It seems to me that the coverage is improving faster than the football. Sometimes it's still like watching pub team football, but with better coaching. There are some good technicians but the standard is poor, in general. The main thing is the defending. I always used to hear that scoring goals was the hardest thing in football, but in Women's football the hardest thing is managing to stop the opposition from scoring.

No one can tackle and you might as well not have a keeper sometimes. Everything has to start somewhere, mind you, and with the cash and coverage that is being increased all the time the standard will improve further. It is good to see how much England have caught up with the other nations and generally.

I will watch the internationals on the BBC and the Women's Football Show is on after MOTD so I find myself watching fairly often. I can't help thinking the Northern Premier League would be more entertaining but hey ho, political correctness is dish of the day nowadays.

20 Apr 2018 14:27:47
even though you didn't put it very well the women's game has improved loads over the last few year.

I remember watching a few world cup games about 8 years ago and it was terrible. really slow passes where going everywhere. Just a terrible game. It looked like a league 2 game. Now that more women are playing the quality is right up there.

20 Apr 2018 17:52:10
What a great guy.

19 Apr 2018 10:13:27
Reading some great and interesting posts this morning lads. Particularly the thread about Ceballos.
This is just an observation on my part; as I saw that many people talk about a first 11. Football, and the Premier League in particular, in my opinion - have moved away from a first 11. Its at least a first 14 - perhaps even more than that.

Bored waiting for the weekend, does anyone have any insight on how Klipperty is enjoying his time here.

Looks really happy at the moment, after a dodgy spell last year, when one of the Ed's rightly commented he looked disheveled?

Portuguese international midfielder Ruben Neves will transfer to Liverpool from Wolves.

Harry Kane will win gold in the backstroke

Assume we are just throwing out outlandish claims with no context?

19 Apr 2018 15:18:10
Is this one of those Mystic Meg moments? We all know its unlikely, but by being so assured, if it comes off, you look like you're in the know. I think several people have read the same thing.

18 Apr 2018 12:50:56
I just read an article in the Echo asking ‘are Liverpool on the verge of having a better season than City? ’ This highlighted a number of things that have made me angry recently and I wanted to write about. If I ask any of you directly ‘will we win the CL’ you’d all give a measured answer along the lines of ‘we’re in great form and have as good a chance an any of the other teams but it will be tough’. However, that’s not been the subtext amongst Liverpool fans recently; the subtext is ‘IT’S IN THE BAG! ’. I can stand optimism, I can stand confidence, what I can’t stand is arrogance. If we lose either the semi or the final our arrogance makes us look stupid and if we win our arrogance makes us look like stuck-up douchebags. I am much more comfortable with earnest hope than cockiness.

The second thing is a lack of respect for our rivals. City are on the verge of having the greatest PL season in history, they will likely break records for most points, most goals scored and best goal difference but instead of acknowledging this brilliant achievement I’ve seen posts undermining it saying it’s all down to the chequebook or, I even saw one post, trying to argue that the PL was particularly weak this season. Then we have Utd, let’s forget that Mourinho’s improved the team significantly over last year, let's forget that Utd are having their best season since Ferguson retired, let’s forget that they’re above us in the table, no, they’re a terrible team playing terrible football worthy of our scorn. Looking at our European rivals Real are dismissed as a poor team with Ronaldo papering over the cracks, Bayern are only doing well because of the uncompetitive nature of their league and, as for Roma, we’re nice about them but only because we all secretly think they’ll be a walkover.

Maybe we’ll win the CL and if we do that will be brilliant but it will mean no more than Benitez’ win in 2005, a great achievement and memory but short of our ultimate aim of winning the league. We’re getting better and we’re inching closer but we’ve achieved the square root of f*ck all so far so let's show a little humility and class guys. I know this doesn't apply to everyone and maybe not even the majority but can we just tone it down a bit.

Agree17 Disagree2

18 Apr 2018 14:34:46
Let me put this to you Putney, if LFC do NOT win the CL and finish top four say finishing third, which is I think only four points of being confirmed, they will have zero trophies but will have qualified for CL. If Arsenal win the Europa Leauge they will have a trophy and have CL football next season . So if their fans say we have had a better season than Liverpool their argument has legs, even though they will finish sixth or seventh, as they have the same end of season objective achieved but with the added benefit of a decent trophey. Even though there has been nothing but turmoil there this season.

It is all perspective. City have had a great domestic season, but have been found wanting in Europe again. Truth is if more teams had have gone at them, like Liverpool and even Wigan did they may not have had such an impressive season. I'm not being disrespectful as their season in the leauge is a thing to behold, but it is not arrogant to think a CL win for a club no one expected anything off, compared to a league win for a team that were red hot favourites is a better season in my eyes. City are a wonderful team, and records will tumble but Liverpool have shown when it counts they can compete. City's main aim this season was CL, that is the one the owners are desperate for, Liverpool's was a continuation of a top four spot, they may well get that and the European Cup to boot. Let's not be arrogant of course but let's celebrate what could be an outstanding achievement and for me would make them team of the year.

18 Apr 2018 16:38:53
We will finish the season with no trophies and just scrape 4th on my opinion.
City have been far more superior this season and will next season.

18 Apr 2018 17:17:43
Hi Putney,

I don’t believe they are the greatest team the PL has ever seen and to say that isn’t disrespectful or trying to take anything away from them. They are deserved champions and I’m not debating that.

I do think their record this year is in large part down to the fact everyone has taken a very negative approach in their games against them including the so called “top teams”. The evidence shows that their defence is still incredibly suspect if you have the stones to get at them. Even the likes of Bristol City and Wigan have proven that.

I agree with what you say about a bit of arrogance creeping into some of our fans since the champs league result though. I myself am keeping grounded as have seen enough false dawns at Liverpool to teach me that!

18 Apr 2018 21:44:50
FFS Walter, what would turn you positive.

18 Apr 2018 23:39:07
Someone take Walters shoe laces and belt off him quick 😝.

19 Apr 2018 16:54:33
I am actually a really happy person. I just want my team to win trophys and league titles.
Unfortunately this just won't happen for the foreseeable future.

19 Apr 2018 17:54:13
Happy clairvoyant is that Walter?
In 2005 at halftime did you:

A) look on in awe with goosebumps as the ground sang you’ll never walk alone

B) look on in awe as your cat’s sixth sense kicked in and he headed for the cat flap, not to return for four days just in case

C) Start composing your letter to the LFC board demanding Rafa be shot at dawn, or

D) Start arguing with your wife over whether Reg Holdsworth would ever get off with Miss BetterBuy coz you’d already given up all hope and switched over to Coronation Street as soon as we went 0-2 down

Poor NR Walter you probably think the Shankly spirit is a brand of whiskey liquor 😩.

19 Apr 2018 19:27:00
I layed on my friends sofa watching us get dismantled.
my friend a Newcastle supporter said to turn it off but I said nope, I have to watch it even if we loose 6 nil, then the unthinkable happened. One of the saddest days of my life Shevchenko runs up to take penalty and my mates cable TV turns over for Eastenders. It took a full 10 mins to find the remote and get it back on itv. so I actually missed the moment that we won.

19 Apr 2018 20:19:59
That’s hilarious Walter, you have to be kidding me. Are you Frank Spencer in disguise? No wonder you have Eeyor’s cloud hanging over every post you write. Unlucky Alf had more good fortune than you and birds constantly shat on his head. oh bugger, 👴🏻.

19 Apr 2018 21:05:26
Absolutely true that. I was so upset. Also very weirdly my friend got even more excited than me when we managed to get it back on. I even had a beer to celebrate too.

19 Apr 2018 22:11:19
Walter I will always view your posts differently now bud, hope you are raising a glass on the evening of May 26th too 🤞🏻⚽️👍😊.

20 Apr 2018 13:54:52
Appreciate that let's hope we will all be celebrating come the evening of May 26th.
