Awful thing when that happens. I had a similar experience at a Tom Jones concert.

Very good manager. I don't want him at Arsenal simply because I think he's been around the block too many times to embark on what will be a long term rebuilding job. I think it needs a premiership outsider with a fresh vision.

True, I think he sees Newcastle as that, IF he gets the money from the new owners.

I see St Brendan is the bookies favourite. I wouldn't blame him if he went but hope he stays.

I really like Simeone. It can only be a matter of time before he gets drawn to the EPL.

Football aside, do folk really want to see Mourinho version 2.0, in terms of acting the cunt, Simeone in the EPL? Isn't mourinho enough? I think the wolves manager is a bit of a dick too.

Simeone is indeed a total cunt and would run Jose pretty close as No 1. Some might find that all terribly entertaining. I’m not one of them.

And yes, the Wolves Manager is a bit of a dick. Sadly it appears that most football managers are these days.

Well yes, you do have a point.

I’m sure everybody knows this but just in case.... He is universally known as Colin by Reading fans, his name being an anagram of Colin Wanker.

Whilst I sometimes think Souness talks a load of twaddle, he was absolutely spot on yesterday regarding Granit Xhaka's woeful display, especially around the first goal. "Pretend football" he called it and pretend football it most certainly was.

I'm afraid he is sympomatic of all that is wrong with Arsenal, and has been for the best part of a decade - a youngster given his head, whose performances never quite match the potential, and eventually settling into a nice comfy role where nothing too much is expected, and even less delivered.

They need a Simeone - someone who will wake them out of their slumber and make them feel threatened and uncomfortable around their continued selection. It's just become all too easy at Arsenal, and they're getting fuck all in terms of challenging it on the pitch, let alone from the managerial team.
