  1. I'm surprised you use Sheffield United as an example. We've had more Premier League seasons than them in recent times. I don't think it's anything to do with different personality types, or fans ambition etc. It just depends what side of the fence you sit on and nothing more. If you think that "oh with a bit of investment we'll be a Prem regular" then of course, that's your prerogative. But there's more evidence that this isn't the case - the odds are against us. On the basis that there are 20 or more richer owners of clubs below us in the football pyramid already - the concern is that with different owners we might fall further than with our current owners who, for all their lack of wealth, seem to have out performed so many other owners with wealth. When changing owners we have to weigh up risk / reward. The problem here for most fans is that our existing owners, again despite having no money in football terms, have still delivered up and above that of many richer owners. When you also consider that our current owners are fans and very much custodians of the club too, we know we're in relatively safe hands. They're close with the fans, with the community - as a club we do so much community driven things. Of course, that's not to say a new owner might not do the same, heck, they could do even more - but what are the chances? How many examples are there of rich owners doing exactly that? Maybe three, four, five at a push? Feels much more like a pipe dream to me, especially when you consider we've clearly had no genuine, hard interest in our club from anyone in recent years.

    Hindsight says we got a great fee for him.

    Does this forum have any kind of age-restriction to those who can sign up?

    Why bother asking where Wenger said it if you're then going to completely ignore it? Begs the question why you asked.

    I presume from Til's consistent passive-aggressive liking of all your posts against me he also thinks '****' is an acceptable term to use. I don't have to get over myself; probably a good idea for you to take a good look at yourself though.

    No, I don't think using a disability-related term as a negative connotation towards a group of people is acceptable. Clearly you do.

    No. You posted something, and I disagreed with it. Bloody hell, I hate the term but it really does feel like 'snowflake' central on here sometimes.
  11. I didnt have to sit and go through it. I was reading the thread. It's what you normally do in order to respond to what other have said. Its kinda how a forum works. You'll get there at some point I guess.

    Good to see I havent got to you or anything.
  13. How is it a bit far? You referred to our fans as 'retarded' yourself? Do you not think that's derogatory and disrespectful? Where do you draw the line? When its being said to you?
  14. Do you need me to call you a **** or something to spice things up? Seems to be your thing.
  15. Hey, if you didnt make it so easy for me by being such an awful fan...

    Not very often a team is top of the league after 46 games thanks to uh...well...pure luck. Kind of makes debating completely pointless with you when you refuse to give credit where it's due and criticise at every other opportunity.
  17. So just to clarify, not referring to your own fans as 'retards' equals die hard fan in your book? You set your bar pretty low.

  19. Well, it was more to do with the fact you eloquently referred to our fanbase as 'retarded' in response to a (supposed) Brighton fan's criticism. Thought it was a good suggestion for you based on the above.
  20. Keith worried = me reassured. Clearly we're in good hands.
  21. You could always go and support Brighton..

    Is 'The Model' flawed?

    I didn't think Mclean and Trybull worked the week before and didn't want to see it again. However I understand Amadou wasn't fully fit and was only available in an 'emergency' situation. With him fit i'd like to see Amadou in midfield alongside Leitner, personally. And an actual CB in defence. Can even see us trying Amadou alongside Tettey in away matches.

    When you say Virus, what are you referring to? Are you referring to the 404 error pages that were displaying? If so, that was a server-side problem and nothing to do with a problem on your PC / Laptop.

    If you actually have a virus as opposed to just a problem with a webpage(s), then clearing browsing data won't make a difference Purple. I'd recommend grabbing a free malware removal tool as your first point of call, so utilise MalwareBytes free version here https://www.malwarebytes.com/ Install it, it'll have to do a few updates to get the latest info, then let it run. It'll scan your pc and hopefully remove / quarantine anything dangerous.

    Is 'The Model' flawed?

    The problem is you seem to repeat this 'other teams have injuries' like people aren't aware. We all know other teams have injuries. Have all other teams had to regularly play midfielders in central defence? That is a unique situation which I think is costing us. So when I say fully-fit - I mean 11 players playing in their preferred position. If you don't think a Zimmerman / Klose plus Amadou in his actual position wouldn't make us more competitive then that's your prerogative. I've not looked, but I didn't see you calling us out as being awful before or during or just after the Man City match.
