  1. Past hour
  2. You can get help for your insecurity
  3. Today
  4. Edit: Just realised you meant the first one on one. Again, Taylor isn't looking at Kent and isn't aware of his run, and may have just played him onside anyway even if Hernandez hadn't. But aye, suppose Hernandez didn't cover himself in glory there.
  5. If one of the biggest teams in England are suffering,others must be at breaking point. I hope the 'best league in the world' implodes.
  6. It was Taylor who played Kent onside, by running in a straight line towards the ball rather than pushing up.
  7. I’ll save him the bother. We were shite.
  8. Looks like your romantic dinner is cancelled indefinitely now, laddie. Can't say I didn't find that exceedingly humourous. Been sinking a few wet ones in McGinty's all afternoon. Making the most of it because who know when I'll be back.
  9. It doesn't take much detective work to conclude that yourself and the clown from Deeside decided to burst onto the scene and put everyone in their place with your witty repartee and ladz banter... All you've succeeded in doing is making yourselves look a right pair of arseholes.
  10. Normally a game I would go to but thankful of the excuse not to.If I hear its a one upfront job pre kick off,I'll be off gardening or walking instead,rather than listening. Need a show of entertainment intent soon. COYBleedinReds
  11. In the same manner that JC used to do with Jamie Smith all those years ago. The fact that Bryson is heading for 34 and experiencing his first run or injuries in his career is not exactly inspiring and we certainly shouldn't be trying to build anything around him. I am quite sure that Bryson was offered a new deal at Derby, but was told he wouldn't be a first team regular, so chose to move back up north and I think most of us at the time thought he would be a good signing, but sadly hasn't been the case. I am sure if DM signs more midfielders one of them may work out well for us.

    They are hoping to suppress things without having to go back to a full lockdown and will take things as they come with the schools going back. We have to try and get some kind of order back and I think the softly softly approach is fair enough, rather that than the gungho way Bojo went for it in England. Kids beside us have been meeting up and mingling with each other for weeks now, long before if was ok for them to do so and pretty sure this was the case in other areas and infection numbers have stayed fairly low so far. The Scottish Government have always said with each lifting of measures that they will monitor the situation carefully and not be scared to take actions if required and have backed that up with todays announcement. Opening the pubs was always going to lead to potential problems, as common sense and alcohol are not natural bedfellows and so it showed. I also feel sorry for the restaurants and cafes that really did go out on a limb to make this work and can only hope this latest setback doesn't see more close permanently. We just need to hope that these vaccines in development do as hoped and can be developed soon and we can get back to some sort of normal.
  13. Statement from ArsenalThroughout the COVID-19 pandemic we have been working hard to ensure that Arsenal Football Club emerges in a robust and strong position for the future.In line with other football clubs and many other businesses operating in the sport, leisure and entertainment arena, we have been impacted directly by COVID-19.Our main sources of income have all reduced significantly. Revenue from broadcasters, matchday and commercial activities have all been hit severely and these impacts will continue into at least the forthcoming 2020/21 season.The pandemic represents one of the most challenging periods in our 134-year history and we have responded promptly by implementing wide-ranging measures to reduce our costs. Our players, senior football staff and executive team have volunteered pay cuts, we have stopped pretty much all of our capital spending, and our discretionary operating expenditure has been strictly controlled.We have also received significant financial support from our owners, Kroenke, Sports & Entertainment in terms of refinancing our stadium debt.These steps have all reduced the impact of the pandemic on the club and have helped us continue to maintain investment in the team. This will continue to be a key priority.It is now clear that we will be facing more significant and longer-lasting reductions in our revenue than we all hoped. Current indications are that we will not have fans back at Emirates Stadium for the start of next season and fans will only be able to return in limited numbers after that. The global economic projections are also very negative.This will impact the disposable income of our fans, the money corporate clients have to spend on hospitality and sponsorship, and the ability for broadcasters to invest in TV rights.We all hope there will be no “second wave” but we also need to accept that is one of the many uncertainties ahead of us and plan accordingly.Over recent years we have consistently invested in additional staff to take the club forward but with the expected reduction of income in mind, it is now clear that we must reduce our costs further to ensure we are operating in a sustainable and responsible way, and to enable us to continue to invest in the team.Our aim has been to protect the jobs and base salaries of our people for as long as we possibly can. Unfortunately, we have now come to the point where we are proposing 55 redundancies.We do not make these proposals lightly and have looked at every aspect of the club and our expenditure before reaching this point. We are now entering the required 30-day consultation period on these proposals.We know this is upsetting and difficult for our dedicated staff and our focus is on managing this as sensitively as possible.These proposed changes are ultimately about ensuring we take this great football club forward, creating the right organisation for a post-Covid world, and ensuring we have the resources to return to competing effectively at the top of the game here and in Europe.Raúl Sanllehi, Head of Football Vinai Venkatesham, Managing Director
  14. Game not to be effected by the lockdown. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/53668239
  15. Yeah maybe but I suspect he was done when Derby got rid of him. They would have kept him on if he was still up to it. I think we based his wage on how good he used to be unfortunately. I’d negotiate a free transfer with him and cut our losses. McInnes should not feel obligated to play him because of his salary.
  16. If that part about his travelling is correct then that's surely a hanging offence. Are you saying that he doesn't train with the squad ?
  17. They might do. I agree with you.....I think he's done. But because his wages will be at the top end of our squad, it will be very difficult to get shot of him either on a transfer or a loan without us heavily subsidising his pay elsewhere. I've seen it said that he's only travelling up once a week from his home in the Kilmarnock area and Killie might have been a possible way for us to get shot of him. But with his injury history in the past 2 years, I think we are stuck with him till his contract runs out. McInnes of course has to take a fair bit of the blame for rushing him back from injury on at least a couple of occasions

    Coronavirus

    The work reasons i dont get, infected people that are asystematic, that don't know they have it can still go to work and spread it? Its like the governments really do not want to go back to full lockdown to suppress it. Just wait for those kids all over Scotland going back to school, hugging their mates and spreading it to others, just got them to go home and give it to their parents, grandparents.
  19. Haha, imagine trying to say that over there.

    Classic. Are you superior in heterosexuality? Or do you surpass him in your homosexuality? How does that work? I don't need you to tell me who to engage with on the internet, nor how to, but thanks for the advice I'm sure you mean well.
  24. Aye you're right there. That's what happens when you upset Bebo. He removed my post count, set up a 1,000 club for his pals, and allowed the law to be broken with impunity in terms of my personal details. You must worship at the altar of Bebo to post on there. Kissing his ass is mandatory. He puts in loads of work for the site, and doesn't get paid for it you know. The site has also come close to closing many times but he has saved the day on every occasion like some sort of Internet Superman. It's an absolute miracle that it's still going and he is personally 100% responsible for that miracle.
  25. A cracking summation! The annoying thing about Gleeson is that I (and others, I'm not some genius) picked it up within his first pre-season game. He was a Rob Milsom type, distinctly average and always playing within themselves. In fairness, you generally have to attend a game where they're playing to notice the full extent of it, because you miss a lot on the TV. Players like Ryan Jack can seem like they're not doing a lot at times, but when you're there you seem them tucking in to replace missing fullbacks and stretching the game. Gleeson played like one of those "modern" players you see playing fives where they've learned their entire game from watching someone on the TV. Running full pelt at a centre back to "take the ball off them", so that they look like they're the main man, rather than just taking a couple of steps back and receiving the ball easily because you've made the space. Gleeson was ponderous, put his defenders under pressure by standing too close to them, didn't cover his fullbacks and had shite movement (he had one okay game at Pittodrie against someone, can't remember who). He was way out of his depth. If I had scouted him, I'd have spotted it straight away too, and almost anyone who's watched fitba regularly and played at any level (even fives) would have seen it had they been looking solely at him (which was what scouts are supposed to do!). I wouldn't blame McInnes, necessarily, for Gleeson that is where the club has to have a far better network of scouts and McInnes should be tasked with requesting a position and final sign off. That would reduce the nonsense that we keep getting where we're overloaded in parts of the pitch because Deek really liked McGeouch or whoever. McInnes is utterly to blame for Tansey, Storey, Main, Morris, May etc. who were playing in our league and blatantly didn't have the attributes to play for a McInnes team. Tansey's movement was shite for ICT, Storey was a fucking car crash of a fitba'r, and Main not much better.
