Something that isn't hospitality and more Multimedia based.Quote:
Chelsea home tickets had a reputation of notoriously expensive a while back, I dunno if that is still the case. I've wanted to attend a Villa home game for a while but just never got around to it. If they stay up(which it's looking likely to be the case), then I'll definitely go to a game next season.
I think with the baggage and unsettling nature his presence brings to the dressing room, it's best to ship him off to whatever club is willing to pay The Baggie's estimation value of him.Quote:
Yeah Swansea were quite comfortable for a long period of that game in the second half and looked like the team most likely to score. It's hilarioud for Rio to score; first goal in 4-5 yearsQuote:
3rd place should be decided, buy you never know. Arsenal have to not slip up against Wigan. I'm rooting for Arsenal to get 4th, btw.
Why not? Just go, or are you busy every single Saturday and Sunday?
Have you been to Highbury or the Emirates?
On other news, I'm rooting for Watford to win the Playoff as I'd like to see Zola managing in the Premier League.
There were some other chances that really should've been finished.
They said it was his first goal in five years.

Hohohoho. Is anyone watching the Rooney saga begin unfolding? Hohohoh.
I'm calling it now, within the next 10 years Manchester will be following their northern neighbours Leeds into obscurity. 74 all over again. 74 all over again.
Imp, I don't know about obscurity, but I definitely don't think Moyes is the right choice. The people who said that, "Moyes is cut from the same cloth as Fergie" just made me laugh. I don't like Fergie, and I think that he was a pretty disrespectful person, but there's no denying how well he could inspire the troops.
Disrespectful? In what way?
I've never heard another manager go to the lengths he does to deny the truth. Plenty of other managers would admit that there were questionable calls, but not Fergie. Even an extremely blatant wrong call would be absolutely correct.
I dont understand. You get fined for criticising the referees in public (questioning the integrity of match officials). It's only worth it if your team was on the wrong end. Why risk a fine for no gain? Everyone understands this including the wiley british press. They spend the whole press conference (of which there are 1 or 2 a week) to get something controversial out of it. Almost all managers dont fall for it (and it is falling for it), the ones that do usually fail at understanding the media and inevitably suffer for it in other areas or have other motives in mind other than fair play.
Besides, hypocrisy is the norm for managers. For example, have you not seen the "I didnt see it" stuff from Wenger? Or the crap Sam Allardyce got away with? Ferguson stuff gets more attention because of his and uniteds higher profile. I dislike Ferguson but not because of that, you cant really blame him for what is the norm (you can hate him for being a cunt though )
Even Brendan Rodgers, and by extension Rafa (for saying he didn't see it either, damn Liverpool man), was getting on my nerves with the, "I didn't see the bite."
If we'd still had Jose, I think that Fergie might be looked at in a much different light.
I do think that Fergie gets overhyped in some ways, but there's no denying that he's a good manager. At times, calls have gone his way, but every successful manager needs that. Look at the CL and some of the luck Pep's had there.

Yea he might have won less. But managers at clubs like City and Chelsea will never really get the full praise they deserve from the media compared to other club managers for their achievements imo. They always have a -1 penalty on their praise level haha. Jose was not an exception. If he was at any other club with that record it would still be talked about.
Wigan are relegated. All eyes now shift to Arsenal vs Newcastle.
AWwwww actually wanted Wigan to stay up... but don't want Spurs to get the 4th CL spot.. so, hardluck Wigan
Given that European money is allocated by the place you finished in the league, 4th isn't quite the trophy that Wenger makes it out to be. You get a good amount less money than 3rd does and quite a lot less than the Champion does.
However, with the new tv deal for the Premier League, the money that comes in from the CL mainly just helps you club buy better players (so it'll be important to the top, top cubs), but otherwise, it's now less relevant than it was in the past because every club will have more money to spend.
There's something I never understood. Usually, most Arsenal fans complain that "meh we never sign anyone, Wegner sucks, leave the club you cheap bastard" but... Arteta, Santi, Podolski, Giroud, Nacho and a huge etc... I wouldn't call them cheap.
Well, the thing is that none of those were expensive buys. To some degree, they were all 8-14m bargains and while they're all good players (Cazorla's the pick of the bunch), there's a certain lack of intent from your club when they're not making or challenging for expensive transfers. Arsenal fans look around at the immediate competition and see United spending 20m on players, City spending 30m on players, Chelsea buying whoever they want, and they look at Arsenal and see the acquisition of a player for 10m. 10m for a player isn't bad, but a lot of times, you're not going to be getting the highest caliber talent for that price.
There's another thing as well. Wenger does this silly wage system where everyone gets at least a certain amount, so even the bit part players get paid well and it reduces the amount of cash that Arsenal has to spend on better players for wages.
Arsenal also haven't won a trophy in eight or nine seasons now, not even the League Cup.
