    That's about as typical as an english description of "quality" as you can get. :D

    I notice Steve Clark has come out straight away and condemned the spitting, and said the club will deal with it internally.

    This is definitely the standard PR approach following the clusterfuck that was the Suarez and Terry incidents. Everyone's well on top of anything like this now.

    Do you really think Ben Arfa is in the same class as the likes of Bale and Suarez?
    I'll side with Shikasma here - Ben Arfa has been injured for a while so a lot of people have forgotten about him. He is ABSOLUTELY up there with Bale and Suarez for natural ability - if he was as injury-free as Bale and Suarez people would agree.

    Watching the video below, i genuinely struggle to think of another player in the Premiership who has as much skill and can go past a player (or two or three players) so easily :




    I will reiterate though : im not saying hes better than Bale or Suarez, but, when hes fit and on form, he's definitely in the same league as them.

    Personally, I wouldn't swap you.

    Personally, i wouldnt swap you either. Fully-fit on-form Ben Arfa over fully-fit on-form Bale any day.

    Fully-fit on-form Ben Arfa over Bale in a Redknapp Free Role any day.

    That won't be as controversial.

    Not only won, but genuinely played very well.

    Mata's goal was a thing of beauty mind

    hat match fixing thing is weird...7 million in betting profits? 1.27 million in bribes?

    From 380 games that seems really, really low considering the money in football.

    The amount of people and players needed to fix games in that sense, I dunno, just can't see it being any team. Far more likely to involve officials imo.

    Are you suggesting Chelsea took money to lose the game?

    Makes sense I guess. Would explain the over-exuberant protesting by Drogba as well to cover tracks. OK, I'm convinced.

    Wilfred Zaha over both, tbh.

    Ultrasoundwave has muddied the water so we can no longer see the real claims from the parody.

    I'd like to stick my head in and say I'd swap our entire French continent for Bale. I like Ben Arfa, but Bale's something else.

    Also, surely Cabaye is our outstanding player rather than Ben Arfa?

    You'd swap 47 players for Bale?

    Hush you ponce
