    I swear, if you didnt jump up at that moment, then you not one of us.

    That was the litmus test, right there.

    I'm still in a bit of a shock about how much Leicester have progressed since last season. Can the Leicester fan tell us...is it due to Ranieri's management skills or some great leadership from the owner?...you guys seem to have a top notch scout as well.

    why not both?
    Ranieri, despite his nickname, is a great team builder. Look at his past teams.

    Yeah...he is a quality manager no doubt but is their recent success an account of aggressive strategising and planning or did they just do the basic things right and surprise themselves on the way..?

    We've beaten a serious contender before. it's the sh!t teams we drop points against. e.g. Liverpool, West Brom, Stoke, Chavs, etc.

    If we had better midfield options available, I'm fairly confident we would've got a result in these games. Until Wenger closes the gap between first and second options we will continue to fall against average teams once the injury curse strikes. Every single year, we approach certain critical games with a severely weakened side and we end up paying a high price.

    So it's our midfield options that couldn't hold on to a lead in the last fooking minute against a team lead by firminho, benteke and caulker?

    no iIt's attitude mate. and it's missing. more often that not against those sh!t teams.

    for me, since I don't scout other teams I can't answer that. But I do know, at some season our own team lack basic things and that makes it imbalanced.
    for instance our 2007-2008 team were great in high level passing but lack basic set piece offense and defense.
    Several season ago, lack basic defensive instinct
    The current one, lack aggressiveness and less technical.

    I think I choose Leicester did the basic things right, and go on from there. Just like in Kung Fu movies, fear those who practice 1 skill 1000 times than those who practice 1000 skills 1 times.

    We need more fecking giant flags at the Emirates. We need more.

    Not going far enough there. You're not a real fan until your post game requires a surgical intervention.

    In the Arsenal vs Hull FA cup final I was in the sports bar in Trafalgar Square and I was watching the match for some drunken reason standing on top of a table at the back of the bar. When Ramsey scored I jumped up celebrating, I misplaced my footing when I landed and my knee dislocated and ended up behind my leg. I carried on watching the remaining minutes of the match with my knee cap the wrong way round and as soon as the whistle blew my mates stood me up it clicked back into place (to say that hurt a lot was understatement). I made the wrong drunken decision not to go to the hospital but carried on partying.

    I went to hospital the next morning and I had done my ligaments and needed to wear a brace. It's like these yoghurt adverts pleasure is followed by pain.

    You're lucky Arsenal weren't treating you: you'd only now be going in for surgery.

    Read this thread from start to finish. You'll get a roller-coaster of emotion. Even I was insulting Özil and Sanchez towards the end of it. :lol:

    Some classic posts.
