    Basically 'if I was white and English I'd be in the squad tonight.

    It's true that Wenger has a history of favouring white, English players. It's really what he's known for, the English thing in particular. His famous invincibles side were basically 100% English to the core. I can barely remember him favouring foreign players in all his years.

    Especially black foreign players.

    Never gave them a chance ever.

    I think this is the kind of psychology that escapes Moyes tbh.
    Good on Moyes for not being a bullying cunt IMO.
    That sort of abuse really helped Saha's career.

    That was more down to injury than anything else.

    The 06/07 season where United won the league again he was excellent in the first half of the season (I believe leagues top scorer) until he was back in the injury room for most of the rest of it.

    He was an excellent player beleaguered by injury not by criticism

    He was great for united for a bit, without question.

    I'd live Frimpong to succeed, but the reality is he isn't good enough (partly because of injury but not convinced he'd ever have made it). His off field DENCH stuff is tiresome and he does daft things like this. That said, he loves the club, has been here since he was 9 so, I'd love him to turn it around. Seems unlikely though

    Me either. I can't believe I had to choose between Redknapp, Townsend, Shearer and Nevin.

    If ever a question needed a 'None of the above' response it is is this one.

    Why so many Dortmund related answers?

    They are the hipsters choice. Oh and I quite like Nevin.

    Yeah I like Nevin too. He's not very 'cool' but he talks a lot of sense and doesn't seem bias at all.

    I like Nevin and not just because he's Scottish - the others are pretty terrible and Nevin's not.

    Apparently I am something of a football hipster, according to the answers I gave.

    Not sure what it is I don't like about Nevin. But I think he is the one I chose as the others are much worse! :)

    I'm the same, I don't like him either. I think it's because I couldn't stand him as a player. See also David Speedie. Or any other diminutive Scottish midfielder that used to play for Chelsea

    I like Nevin. Not just cos he was a Toffee - can't stand Townsend. I think he talks sense and breaks things down well. Cares about doing his job.

    Ryo Miyachi starting for Arsenal in the twobob cup I see. You've got to think they brought him in to sell shirts in the Far East, like that Kagawa bloke at Utd.

    D****** ******r

    I remember reading about that some time ago. Apparently Saha was expecting praise for having scored the two goals, but Ferguson thought he had been careless and wasted good opportunities after having scored. It was supposedly a 'keep your feet on the ground' kind of talk.

    Actually has a lot of potential.
    His pace alone (same as Theo) plus his ability to dribble at high speeds is a feature. Lacks positioning and general intelligence though.

    He was the same with Strachan I think, at both Aberdeen and United.

    I have yet to see a game, against decent opposition, for either Arsenal or when he went on loan, to suggest why this is though.

    He can run fast......that's about it at the moment. He's looked good in some training vids I've seen, but every time he's played against somebody even half decent, he's been completely nullified.

    He's getting to the age where promise won't be enough - he needs to start showing something more than 'Look boss, I can run as fast as Theo'.

    Yeah but you're usually down on everyone. You also thought Ramsey was rubbish too. :p

    I'm yet to be convinced that Japanese players in general can develop the right mentality to really thrive in the Premiership - that's my main fear with Miyaichi.

    Yeah, he was primarily the reason I added 'in general'.
