    ITKlol is that's what he told the team at Mail.RU when he sold his shares. That the money was for Arsenal.
    Interesting. Can't see Stan selling at all and the residual amount of shares are tiny. Now the PL rules have been changed, the 30% mark he was aiming for is now irrelevant. So Christ knows what he is playing at.

    Chelsea are having the early play at Stamford Bridge, where West Brom have named midfielder Isaiah Brown on the bench - if he comes on, then at 16 years and 54 days the teenager will become the youngest player to have made an appearance in the Premier League.

    That means he was born in 1997.
    Well that makes me feel so old (I'm 26 and 3 months).

    It'll be lovely if the young chap scores a goal on his debut if he comes on!

    : )

    ... makes me feel a little old too, am 25 years old myself.

    FFP will be a good thing for the PL, it still allows for infrastructure investment it will just stop unsustainable spending which inflates wages and transfer fees for everyone.
    In fairness, that's more the fault of Chelsea and City (the former especially).

    You're probably right about the rest though.

    Dortmund resurgence down to Klopp though and about to lose Lewandowski. It won't be long before Klopp moves on either to Real Madrid or DFB, also elite teams are going to continue to cherrypick their best players. Dortmund is not a glamorous part of the world at all, so will always struggle to attract top overseas players and keep their best one. Financially their ticket prices are rock bottom (and fans won't allow a big increase).
    They may lose Lewandowski, but like always, someone will step up and replace him. All that was said when they first lost Sahin, then Kagawa, yet they've kept on improving. Now they're better than ever.
    It will be long before Klopp leaves though. Much like Arsene, he always honours his contract, and he's got many years left.
    Yeah, Dortmund isn't a glam place, but neither is Manchester. :p

    And they don't attaract top players, they creat them, so that won't change. Besides, that CL money (if they are consistent) will do them nicely. Agree on the tickets though. I do expect the Bundesliga to attrack more TV money though (not PL levels of course).


    Chelsea/Arsenal, one of these likely to be replaced by a much more competent looking Spurs. Which will likely be a good thing for either of them in forcing an improvement in how they are run.
    As you can imagine, I fully disagree on Spurs replacing us being a good thing. :D
    Heck, I wouldn't even want them to replace Chelsea.

    Carrick is immense. Get a partner for him next season and we are golden.

    One of those days for Newcastle today. If any team deserved to win it 100% certainly wasn't Swansea but it is what it is. NUFC missed several great chances and the goal via some comically bad defending with just 5 minutes to play.

    Gutted but have to move on quickly.



    Bit disappointed in Swansea, fair bit of playacting and diving.

    We did ok, especially in the second half. Swansea were always going to have more ball than us. If anything I wish we would have stayed off them a bit more. We looked knackered by about 20 minutes in. As you say, if one of the sitters went in we would have comfortably won the game. But as usual we missed them and then conceded a comical goal at the end.

    Anzhi next away. Will be tough!

    Thought i'd let you Newcastle lads know that Sammy Ameobi scored a goal that Messi would've proud of today. One of the goals of the season.

    So angry coming away from our game today. QPR are so anti football and kicked us all over the shop and Webb wasn't interested. A draw would have been a fair result. Most of our fans were more interested in HR than getting behind the team which didn't help.

    All in all a bad day. Long drive home to mull it over as well.

    Getting a bit tired of saying this but we should have Ben Arfa back soon now as well. Positive influence he'll have on the team can't be understated.

    Liverpool are total flat-track bullies (will no doubt regret saying this when we play them).

    We've used all our self destructs already this season so should be plain sailing from here.

    noun

    a sportsperson who dominates inferior opposition, but who cannot beat top-level opponents Am I right in thinking the only top ten side they've beaten was Swansea, and then was when they put out their B team?

    Which is unusual, as have generally been good against the top teams in the past. Just not had a good season for it this time.

    Laughable, your players were falling over at the slightest touch, Puncheon in particular.

    Yeah, previous seasons their issue was losing to 'weaker' teams and doing well against the big guns. Usually, anyway.
