  1. Must be Xmas with praise from Older lol
  2. Tottenham Hotspur

    But city are unbeaten and 21 points better off than Spurs the same as Arsenal , both clubs off the pace and both could be outside the top four come the end of season , City are the team to beat , but I must say they are very good to watch and play great football . Unless they have a big melt down can't see them being caught . Merry Xmas to all posters on the non Cornish forum , hope you have a good one
  3. Keep up ....... Ex Penryn players leaving to play at Falmouth Olders Take on the situation .
  4. Yes some have , theo for one has flattered to deceive 140 k a week never worth it , Mustaphi come in on a big fee , either injured or looking for a move . Xhaka seems to slow for the premier league especially under pressure , well beck always on the outside of tHe squad either injured or coming back not prolific enough when fit . Arsenal move the ball to slow when counter attacking , no mid,fielder that can dictate the game or protect the back four like of old Vierra , Pettit , or Gilberto Silva , as Older has stated before very small stature squad . Lacking a skipper someone who can drive the team on the pitch . Arsene is 68 now and I think at the top level he may have lost some of his old spark . I don't know what Bouldy does as his assistant but the defence can't defend and that was where he played . Transfers now all clubs have scouts everywhere that was one of Arsene strengths when he came to the club , prices now for a squad player are in the 20- 30 million bracket. And the board are out to make money . Pluses Jack Wishire coming back , Maitland miles not looking out of place , Holding has the basics to be a good defender , Reece Nelson looks a good prospect but that is what he is a prospect at present . Still will support / follow to the day I die but the club at present are not at the races with the top teams in England , but who knows what will happen .?

  6. A while back , I think it was on sky , can't remember which pundits were involved but there was a consensus of opinion that Arsenal are still a big job and if / when Arsene retires many good managers would be interested in taking over as they are still classed as a big club . A change will be needed when it happens ,but the board will need to back whoever comes in . I am afraid money needs to be invested to push the club on in the league to challenge the city's , Utd , chelski . I think when Arsene leaves it will be only then that he will be appreciated on what he has done for Arsenal , he goes down as their greatest manager , the main problem recently is lack of league success or sustained push to challenge .
  7. Tottenham Hotspur

    Are you becoming the New Greavsie ? Older.
  8. Could also be staffing levels as it is Xmas weekend and as most firms lots on holiday and probably only skeleton staff , not ideal but as BD states they own the pitch and they can dictate when and if it is available , enjoy your Xmas and hopefully in the new year we have more refs available , dry weather no more clubs folding .Good luck to all clubs , officials and volunteers at your clubs you all deserve a pat on the back without you we have no local football .
  9. Tottenham Hotspur

    Very true older you are so right .
  10. I think there are several factors involved in my own opinion , some players not up to playing for a club like Arsenal , coming with big wages but not producing on the pitch , Arsene has favourites and will keep playing them even when off form . Arsene has lost touch with the way football has moved on he was once the man every club copied with his stretching , diet supplements which he brought to the English game . Contracts more down to the money men letting the likes of ozil, sanche,s ect to run down their contracts . Not ruthless enough in front of goal. And being defensively naive . Arsene is the most successful manager in the clubs history and personally I want him to leave with dignity perhaps he should have stepped down after the FA cup Final . Whoever takes over when he eventually steps down ,has a big job on their hands and will take a while to wake up the players to what it means to be at the club . There is no easy fix at the moment .

  12. The only plus this week was jack Wilshire. Xhaka , how much longer can he start . He keeps giving the ball away , but so does Sanchez 32 times against Southampton and god knows how many against the Hammers , and we could have lost late on when the bar saved us , somebody have a shot , no wonder they have loads of possession they pass the ball to death and at such a slow pace , teams get back behind the ball . Maitland had a good game which was a bonus and put a couple of crosses into the box , but no one else did Groud was up top but nobody else put the ball into the box . So frustrating to watch at the moment who would be a gooner . ?????
  13. Tottenham Hotspur

    Still here Older , now before you spuds fans get to excited , there is only one POINT between the clubs , City at present are running away with the league at the moment the rest are trying to get the other three champ. League places on current form Arsenal don't deserve it but then again the noisy neighbours don't either . Arsenal can't score away from home and got away with one at the hammers . Neither north London club are tearing up trees , and the gunners are not doing the business in front of goal bags of possession But no end product . Not sure what the other mob are up to on the pitch in the league but hey are only one point better off .
  14. Loads of possession Again but....... Caught cold again defensively yet again , why don't the players / coaches learn , could have been three down in 10 mins , thank goodness for Girouds header , Credit to Southampton defensively they were exceptional and on the break could have added to their early goal hitting the bar late on , only nine goals scored away from home this season and five of those were against Everton . Above spuds at the moment by a point small consolation . Where has the old Arsenal gone , free flowing attacking football and tight at the back .
  15. I did ha ha , you are so right. Loads of empty seats the least amount watching a game at the Emirates , game was a non event as Arsenal were already top , but why with Xmas coming and money at a premium they didn't do reduced rates especially for kids ? But then I don't move in silent Satans and Ivan the terrible money grabbing world
  16. Wilshire scores , top of group , through to the ko of the pub cup ( sorry Mangle ) , europa league , next up Southampton .

  18. Watched a few minutes before I went out , saw kos give the ball away for the first , what ever happened to don't play the ball across field when defending , easy interception then goal , basic defending. Utd looked up for it , then I went out and had to hear the result from someone else , disappointing result . And agree with mangle this is where The Arsenal are at present .
  19. Tottenham Hotspur

    That's not good , await for weekend if spuds win SSS will leave his darkened room and inform us of how great his all conquering team are and how rubbish the rest are , older could be right a blip , but the media darlings are under the spotlight now , they have had an easy ride for a long time . Get used to it spuds .
