    The person Arsenal really need to sack is all their fans, or failing that, just mantralux. They need to get away from this idea that they have to be an attractive passing team playing 'good football', it's a load of gubbins and historically illiterate. Sort the defence out, get a tough midfielder, and build again from there.

    Aubameyang, Ozil and Pepe across the attacking midfield stations.

    WORKRATE

    Aubameyang genuinely pissed off for a few minutes (what was that all about?) and did anyone notice?

    Was that when the Wilcock lad played a bad pass to him in the first half?

    No, but that was quite funny. There was quite a lot of chimping out in the Arsenal ranks (David Luiz a central protagonist). The one I was thinking was around the 85th minute after Dunk and Webster clashed heads, he seemed to go off somewhere for a short while.

    Freddie Ljungberg looks an inspiring sort going off that interview.

    I think now's the time for Allardyce.

    And that VAR goal was better than I could've imagined.

    I don't think most want 'attractive' football a la Wenger's last decade, at all. Maybe the bods from Nigeria and UAE cluttering the twatter space, but certainly not around N7.

    We did use it as a 'moral victor' thing for a while. I spoke with one of my best mates -a big Chelsea fan about this the other day... When Roman swung into town and we dealt with the first period of not being London's best team in some 50 odd years for more than a year at a time, and in particular when Chelsea developed a new identity as the most winningest win at all cost winners in the land, we were somewhat bereft. In Wenger's first decade we played great stuff, but it was often via counters and it was no more aesthetically orientated than any other big team of the day.

    The move to flighty little technicians with a penchant for hamstring strains coinciding with the aforementioned change in the local hierarchy brought about the whole sense of puritanical superiority through the aesthetic, but most fans woke up on that front well before Wenger departed.

    25 years, 6 months and 11 days and I've finally walked out of an Arsenal game on the wrong end of the result. Was inevitable it would happen now I'm there for the majority of home games, but I always thought it'd be against someone a bit more esteemed than fucking Brighton.

    Not a fucking clue. I was scouring Reddit to see if they'd mentioned why on TV and it had been repeated. Thought he'd heard there was a Chinese contract on the table back in the dressing room...

    35m? You're dreaming. You're talking at least 70m in the current market. It's an interesting one because he's obviously a huge Villa fan, so we'll have to see how that plays against ambition. Don't think he'll go this summer though and there's a chance he might stay when he gets the inevitable England call up. He's obviously twice the player of say...Ross Barkley. Bit of Gazza about him.

    Chill out. He's not going anywhere. Think McGinn might end up at United though, which is a massive shame. Player.

    Given we all know play will go on until the thing happens and then they'll check it yeah, just keep playing.

    The sport has to evolve. Rules have to change. I want to seen the clock being stopped every time the ball goes out of play or the whistle is blown, and just play two 30 minute halves or something like that. There are a few other rules I would change.

    They need to sack Wilder and bring in Marco Silva.

    It'll be interesting to see where Silva chances his arm next. Probably going to have to find a cushty number a la Martinez. Maybe he's more Villas-Boas, without the enigmatic squatting. He can join Owen Coyle in the Indian Super League or whatever it is called.

    Chelsea got their ban lifted. They should be buying a whole new defence.

    They might get Sancho in January, but I’d imagine Chillwell would be the summer.

    Current defence is fine other than left back. We're not trying to win the league. Give Tomori time to develop.

    He can develop, just beside a slightly better player. The goalkeeper doesn’t help, he’s been a bit error prone whilst making some unreal saves.

    You’ll end up with Zaha in January.

    Macclesfield's game off tomorrow due to players' strike. Bury mkII, waiting to happen. Will seriously fuck me off as if their results are expunged we'd lose points while rivals at the top wouldn't.
