    So Arsenal are playing on Sunday and Wednesday?

    Oof!

    I like that you guys are playing before we are on Sunday.

    All the rumours have been about Everton signing him for the past few weeks.

    Strange no media outlet anywhere has bothered to write that Willian story up.

    Oh yeah! Man that's great!

    I heard that he: was discovered by Molde FK when they met KIL/Hemne in the first round of the Norwegian football cup. KIL/Hemne surprisingly won the match 3-1, with Forren and two other young players impressing highly. They were afterwards invited to trial for Molde in a junior tournament.[1] Shortly after Forren signed a 5 year deal with Molde.[2] He took Tippeligaen with storm and European clubs as A.C. Milan, Newcastle,[3] Liverpool[4] and Hoffenheim,[5] have watched him playing for Molde FK. But Forren said that he will stay in Molde FK for a while, even though his dream is to play in a bigger European league one time. He said that he was still young and have a long career in front of him. He was also linked with Lazio[6] and F.C. Copenhagen.[7]

    Internationally he looks a good unas well, did you know that: Forren made his debut for Norway U21 in the match against Ukraine U21 on 26 March 2008.[9] He played a total of 14 matches for the under-21 team, scoring three goals, and was later capped twice for the under-23 team.[10]

    Forren made his debut for Norway in the 2012 King's Cup match against Thailand on 18 January 2012.[11] He also played against South Korea a few days later, but had to wait to October 2012 for his first competitive match when he started the match against Switzerland,[12] and has since played alongside Brede Hangeland in Norway's central defence.[13]

    Not great for us if true, we've been scouting him for a couple of years (along with half the PL, but apparently not Spurs...) as a replacement for Distin. There's a great photo of Moyes with all the back room staff freezing their tits off at a Molde game a few weeks ago. Apparently we spoke with him the other day, but I guess our personal terms aren't up to scratch (won't someone take Heitinga from us?!)

    iirc he was linked with Everton, Fulham and Utd in December. Suggests he might be decent. Won't be a first teamer anyway.

    Our CB situation is looking pretty rosy all said. AVB seems to have realised Dawson is awesome and Verts is already a legend, Caulker has come through nicely and Kaboul is yet to come back. Gallas can do one.

    Gallas is still French right? We'll take him!

    Gallas to QPR was doing the rounds the other day.

    I'd be surprised if Villas Boas WASN'T begging Harry to take him. Watched done or two Spurs games this season and he has looked the worst player in the team every time.

    Weirdly AVB seemed to love Gallas for quite a while, perhaps just because he brought in some experience.

    We do basically keep a clean sheet every time we play Dawson and concede loads of late goals when we play Gallas so hopefully he's noticed the correlation by now.

    Been really impressed with Caulker, saw a bit of him at Bristol City, Swansea and for Team GB, seems to win everything in the air.

    Is it just me or are quality CBs getting younger? Used to be that you wouldn't even consider anyone below 28/29 but with the likes of Evans, Vertonghen, Kompany etc that seems to be changing.

    Plus Wilshere, who may as well be a new signing seeing he's barely played with the rest. Add in Theo being tried more up front, attacking-wise it's pretty new and why in some games we're pretty ineffective. Doesn't excuse the defensive lapses though
    But EVERY team has those situations virtually every single season. Doesn't make their team any less new.
    As for Theo? He's barely played 4 games in that position. Surely doesn't explain the crapness before that.

    Personally, I say attack-wise it's down to creativity, as it's been since we lost Nasri & Fab. Only one person has come in to fix that (Caz) and he himself surely cannot compensate the loss of both Nasri & Fab.
    Add the lose of Song & RvP (both creative outlets) and we're lacking even more. Plus the demise of Arshavin, Rosicky's no-show/sickness/coke-bing.

    The team just doesn't create enough, and all stats point to that. Even if they were used to each other for 4 years, we still need creative people.

    Calling him a quality CB is still controversial?

    The People's Lino has been dropped from the next round of PL games. Damn right. Should never be involved in another match ever again. Wanker.

    Dropped or part of the natural rotation all match officials are part of during a season?

    Correction, he was due to do West Brom vs QPR tomorrow night and has been dropped.

    Ticket prices were probably to low to justify assigning the bellend.

    I heard Gallas turned us down.

    Our Joey seems to think that Remy is coming to us now, reckon it's bullshit.

    Nah, all signs point towards it being true and set to be confirmed. Hope he enjoys his higher wage because that's the reason you're getting him.

    Would love it if you went down tbh, regardless of what happens with Loic Remy. I don't like how you do business and I don't like Redknapp.

    I swear I read something earlier where Redknapp said he flew to France, opened a bank account for his goldfish and Remy wouldn't even meet him because he doesn't want to join QPR

    Some of his replies are just rage inducing. The biggest cunt to ever play football imo.

    Yup. There's just no need. Let the clubs do their own business in their own way.

    Barton is so aware of how people view him that he just doesn't care any more. He had a real go at people on benefits the other day for some pointless reason. Like he'd have a clue what it's like to not be on a footballer's wage.

    How we do our business? You mean offer higher wages than you? While I'd much rather we lived within our means I'm not sure we've been unethical in any way.

    I hope you find these players who only want to play for the love of football and the toon, and wish you every success for the future.

    And we probably will get relegated, and face a particularly dodgy future. So you can look forward to that in the coming years.
