  1. Sorry, I havent been active here at all lately but I still browse and read some great posts by our friends here. Is there still an option to donate rather than a monthly subscription or an yearly plan? I would like to do a one time donation if thats a possibility. Also, good to see the forum back again. Thank you
  2. The most funny thing about Maguire is that he believes there is a reason why both the managers started him every game....
  3. Added $20 and if we fall short for the year, will contribute again later. Im unable to post much these days due to many things but I do enjoy reading the posts every now and then, Keep up the good work all the active members and admins.
  4. I probably said this here before but not sure. Super cups are stupid and those trophies should not be counted by any big clubs if they have any shame. You dont win a trophy by playing one match, that would be a friendly cup if anything.
  5. Cant pay the wages of a mascot and now this against Ozil... Arsenal are losing their class every day... ridiculous to remove him like this
  6. pathetic that the club cant pay wages for the mascot. Also not happy with the fact that Torreira was shipped out, I like him and assuming it would be like another Ox, Gnabry kind of regret to let him go
  7. no I havent read anything from him. Sorry, couldnt help
  8. Where I am from (the south), we dont even take cows really that serious and its urine is way far off to even consider lol. This whole cow worship is mainly in some of the northern parts of India is what I feel, especially in and around the states of UP, Rajasthan, Delhi, Bihar etc. Im not even sure if its that big in Gujarat where Modi is from.
  9. yeah been reading news that Saka is being approached by clubs like liverpool and also chelsea... hope he stays, he looks like a good player and become even a lot more better
  10. Its ridiculous how the once bench warmers at Arsenal like Scezney and Gnabry have turned into starters for potential champions league and league winning teams elsewhere.. I always liked Gnabry when he was at arsenal but never understood why didnt start more ahead of other players.. Luckily Saka is starting enough now and I hope they will lock him down on a long term contract.
  11. yes, I like his style of football and I watched most of Betis' matches when they finished sixth that season... I even followed him a little when he was at Las Palmas before that... true though about the big club expectations... his attacking style and his cruyffian principles made me watch him a lot and I wish he succeeds at barcelona
  12. I like Setien and wanted him to be Arsenal's manager when Wenger was stepping down along with few other names... I think he will do well at Barcelona. Good luck
  13. Looking forward to the season... looks like Arsenal did a decent piece of business but still missing centre backs...

    What a final, dont think I have seen anything better in cricket (except the kolkata test, natwest final and SA chasing 434). Incredible match but felt very very sad for NZ, they didnt deserve to win at all. Congrats to England for fighting it till the last minute and a little bit of luck also helped them but very deserving overall. Im pretty sure majority of the cricket fans are more unhappy about NZ than happy about england, such a cruel match this was. NZ can keep their heads really high and be proud of what they have achieved, hopefully they win one soon.

    Maybe, but the general trend of the cricket has definitely moved to big hitting and bowlers dont get much help starting from the pitches to free hits to the number of overs in T20. But yeah agree, I havent watched much cricket in the last decade, just been following some test matches and the world cup thats about it so maybe Im missing something that you mentioned above.

    not really.... teams will value the wicket more, they wont try to hit every second ball for a boundary or sixer, granted the scoring would be lower but I believe that will be more balanced than what we see now with a scoring range of 160-200 in 20 overs... I thought the goal of the T20 is to shorten the playtime which Im fine with, but the current format gives batsmen too much advantage. Where is the value for the wicket? Every batsmen can more or less throw their bat at everything not worrying about getting out in most cases since there are so many more behind him that can come in and bat... EDIT: Also, the 4 wkt thing is an arbitrary number but you get the point im trying to say. Maybe 4 or 5 or 6 wkts for 20 overs is good but having 10 batsmen bat in 20 overs is giving the batting side way too much power in the match.

    Im fine with reducing the match time and making it a 20 over game but there should be an equal platform for the bowlers too... 50 overs cricket was good with 10 wickets, why dont they change the format to 20 overs and let each team play only 4 batsmen? Once a team is down 4 wkts means they are all out, otherwise its all smashing the sixers at an RPO of 10 and im with TAD on this. I stopped watching cricket after about 2009 or so, I dont follow much and the reason for that is T20 in general and IPL especially.
  18. Well thats probably the only reason I can think of too, that emery didnt like him. But im surprised Emery didnt give him much chance at all either, he is definitely not a bad player and can bench some of the midfielders Arsenal currently have.
  19. So Denis Suarez who was with Arsenal on loan (not sure how many games he even played and I dont remember seeing him play at all to be honest) was sold by Barcelona to Celta Vigo. Always liked him as a player when he played for Barcelona and probably was not at their level but why havent Arsenal given him enough chances to play while he was there on loan and why didnt they try for him for a permanent move?
  20. and that Bayern's goalie during Neuer's absence.
  21. Messi - 10 leagues, 4 CLs, 6 Spanish Cups --- total 20 major trophies Ronaldo - 6 leagues, 5 CLs, 3 domestic cups (1 FA, 2 Spanish) --- total 14 major trophies Not counting the mickey mouse tournaments like supercups.. Messi has 20 trophies and Ronaldo has 14 trophies despite being 2 years older. National team wise, Ronaldo has one and messi has zero. Just because he won 3 CLs in a row doesnt make him a better player, since he had 6 year drought before 2014 too.. lol Vidal won the last 8 or 9 league titles with Bayern, Juve and Barca but doesnt make him anything better than what he actually is
  22. Not a problem, its not much and im happy to help a little
