Can't wait to see the boys play tonight after so long. My guess is that we have gotten our sh*t together mentally. Players seem to be looking better spiritually. Hopefully we can snatch the laliga title. We have harder games than Madrid. 

 

My money is on Bayern for UCL thus far. They probably have the most complete squad and are on fire. Unless city surprise us it's Bayern's year I guess.

Is it just me or did any of you notice that the players play better after going through the lockdown (except for some of the goalkeepers).

I think your right as they'll be more match fit than the English teams at least given they started playing earlier than our teams.

Wait, are there concrete plans in motion to finish the European cups? A date? Didn't pay that much attention since Dortmund is out anyway.😒

No confirmed date but they are gonna finish them. They're gonna go for single-match knockout stages though. No home-away games. They're probably gonna start them after the leagues end.

In the UK Sky are giving the option of watching matches with a fake crowd noise, but it's not available online I don't think. I've heard of some other countries doing the same too.

 

It's bloody awful. Like, actually disgustingly bad and makes the match viewing experience worse. It's meant to sound like a crowd obviously but cause it's not a natural crowd noise that reacts to the game as it's being played it sounds more like some weird tinnitus, it's like someone in your room turned the TV to a channel that just plays static and has left it on. It's dreadful.

 

I believe it's actually crowd noise from EA's Fifa as well, which in many ways explains why it's so bloody sh*te.

It was a load of crap @Jason, lol. Luckily they give the choice to remove it though (at least on the TV), but had to listen to it for a bit. It felt so forced and had a delayed feel to it too. Not for me thanks Mr. Sky TV man. Easy pass.

 

Shame for Sheff Utd that the refs watch didn't work and surprised VAR did nothing too. But as Sheff Utd are potential challengers up top, them dropping a couple if points was what the doctor ordered.

 

Speaking of what the Doc ordered, I did enjoy City turning over the gunners and David Luiz basically making sure they lost, he handing it to them on a plate. 🤣🤣

I seriously don't know how Luiz is still starting for a Premier League club in central defence, I really don't. He is absolutely hopeless without top level / world class defenders alongside him and Arsenal have none of those right now.

I actually like the fake crowd noises in laliga. At least it stops the game from looking like a training match with all the shouting among the players gone.

I was taken aback about how bad the crowd noise was.

 

There were so many instances where it was delayed, especially after a player went close to scoring, making it painfully awkward. In the Villa game Grealish gets fouled and you hear boos when he stays on the ground for a while. Fantastic.

 

The only tiny positive I can give it is if I ignore the horrible noise when the crowd supposedly gets excited, and I'm not looking at the TV the whole time, I can at least pretend there's a crowd there, a very quiet one. 😆

As a lad, I played lots of footie for my school and a local lil' league club which hardly had any crowds so I'm quite used to that in how we can only hear the bench/coaching staff etc.

 

But at least it's optional so no biggie here. If folk enjoy it, it's a good addition for them to enjoy the footie. :)

Kicking my self now for not making the joke of how the fake crowd noise sounds suspiciously identical to the Etihad's normal crowd noise. :lol:

I remember watching one of those fan videos, where they had Liverpool fans and Arsenal fans do a combined 11. The Arsenal fans wanted Luiz in over Matip, and the Liverpool fans let them have him because he was the only player, I think. 

David Luiz is only good enough for comedy. I have no idea how he was a part of that title winning Chelsea side from 2017!

Meh, was key we didn't lose I suppose.

 

Loved how Roy Keane went off at half time about De Gea and co for our goal though, proper funny.

Fair result in the end really. Both teams quite obviously rusty, that one calamitous error per game that's been bothering us for years now rears it ugly head once again. Also it was frustrating how we became very casual once we got the equaliser, felt like some of the players thought they had the win in the bag. Annoying we couldn't get 3 points given that Sheff Utd drew too but not taking advantage of teams around us dropping points has been out M.O. this season.

I'm more pissed that we've opened the door for the Arse to get above us, lol.

 

They have a couple of good attackers, but I'm hoping their defence continues to crumble and then Abamouang (poor spelling I think) can do a runner into Europe. 🤣🤣

 

But yeah, you guys did seem to think it was all wrapped up once you scored that pen. Though I'd have been pissed if VAR didn't overturn that 2nd. Ol' donkey Dyer strikes again. 😤

Yea that wasn't a pen really. Dier's a bit sh*te though tbh. Gary Neville seems to rate him highly but he's one of those who I don't think would look out of place in a bottom half team.

Better than Aurier though, lol. I swear anytime he's being ran at or chasing back, I'm just waiting for the refs whistle. But yeah, Dyer is too average for me.

 

It sounds like we're skint but we need basically a new defence asap.

Arsenal have literally turned into a joke. But it doesn't surprise me anymore. Just look at that team. That squad is a mid table squad at best. Not even good enough for Europa league.

Kinda' feel bad for Arsenal fans. On the one hand, we've been there, around 2011 during the Hodgson days. On the other, it is nice seeing other big clubs go through what you've been through. And one less rival to compete with. But it doesn't seem o be getting any better for them. And it's looking like it might get worse. Arteta really looked like a bad signing, as if they were hoping his work with Pep would mean something, so soon...

Arsenal's problem for a long, long time has been the sh*t defence. They've made no real attempt to fix it ever, preferring to buy stop gaps or gambles to try and smooth out the issues, then splashing big money on forwards.

Auba needs to leave at this point. He must be around 30 now, which likely means one more chance at a good contract. For a guy of his calibre I imagine he'd want to win more before he hangs it up, as well. 

 

Tough break for Leno. He was the glue trying to hold together than travesty of a defence.

Good lord the Merseyside derby was horrendous.

 

Respect to Lovren for trying his best to ruin everything for Pool again.

Didn't watch it but from the scoreline, Everton might not have a better chance at finally winning a Merseyside derby for a while. Should be kicking them selves really.

 

Toon betting Sheff United though, up the Toon. Now we have f*cking Wolves to worry about. Manchester United, having to worry about Wolves and Sheff United. What a time to be alive.

Having seen how long Wolves season has been this term, I think the break will prove to be a real game changer for them. They've played so many games and were in danger of running out of steam but now, I think they'll finish strongly indeed.

Dunno tbh, a lot of teams are looking gassed out there atm. Haven't seen anything of Wolves but there's some teams that definitely came back short on fitness and as this isn't, ya'know, pre-season, there's no time to get that fitness up. United thankfully look in better shape than most, certainly better than Spurs did anyway.

 

I don't think the break will help teams fitness wise, although it did obviously mean many injured players who were practically out of the season recovered in time before the league resumed.

In case you were wondering what the noise was at the start of the game...

 

What f*cking ballbags...
