Stoke City Message Board
Just popped in to ask, if I send 2 of Pools 18 year olds who everyone's rabbiting about down to you guys. Can we have McCormack in a straight swap. I'll throw in a box of kippers.
H---just firing the smoking house up while balancing a JD perfectly in the other hand.
The loss of three points is damaging, if half expected. The thing that worries me most is the potential damage to the confidence of the players, as that can be catastrophic.
Mourinho will sense any fear and Chelsea will aim to exploit that. Another chance for our lot to show 'character', which they have done in the past.
A win over Chelski would have those that are today writing Arsenal off, again having to re-evaluate the teams potential. An Arsenal loss will deal a heavy blow.
A much needed rest will hopefully, at least, have the team playing with more zip in their game and up for proving a point.
Once again the reaction is way out of proportion, to the actual game as a whole. Arsenal certainly made City's defence look ordinary at times, and you can cancel out 3 of their goals, caused by sheer under concentration, due to any number of things. And I reiterate, once again(that nobody has mentioned) we put three passed them, playing, supposedly poorly. Plus another injury to frustrate us even more. Please try to take some of the positive things out of this game. And also try to remember, that defence has been over stretched with games and travel the passed 3 weeks. I do not dispute that City played well enough to win comfortably in the end. But on another day, it maybe another story. We are still top, due to hard work and good play.
Comical Ali more like....... what a dunce!
"Saturday’s match in Manchester was also unusual in that it could have gone another way had Arsenal not been on the wrong end of a trio of dubious offside calls, a trio of poor Olivier Giroud misses, and a rejected penalty appeal when Pablo Zabaleta handled in the box at 3-1 – although it did seem accidental, those are often given."

What game were you watching, Rikki? Surely not the above game, and I won't be surprised if you had your dunce hat on during the game, mid-table fodder.
6-3 ... the stats don't lie .... and if the ref says it's not a penalty, it's NOT a penalty!!
Matchcast it no substitute for watching the game, slayer, you should try it one day!
PS: You want quotes?
"By the end, it had begun to feel like an illusion that this is an Arsenal side looking down from the top of the Premier League. Manchester City, looming in their wing-mirrors, had made them look ordinary."
"The visitors may point to some questionable offside calls and a rejected penalty claim - but in reality they were ultimately blown away by the sheer fire-power of a City side who have now scored 35 league goals at home this season and in 58 consecutive games at Etihad Stadium."
"Have not seen the game Fab"
Of course you didn't see the game, your team plays United later on today, why would you watch a team you don't support when you don't much like football?
Ouch! 13.3? Hmmm... gets you Negredo! ESPN are speculating his calf injury will keep him out for the whole Christmas & New Year period. Not too bad if you've got him @19/20, but 13 is tricky, maybe try to beef up the midfield to 5? And ride it out? Or take the hit and back Negredo. Best wait to see what the damage is.
"When I say over achieve I mean that for me"
LIAR! .... "Arsenal are over achieving" ... "More investment needed to be good enough to last the course."
No-one believes you really support Arsenal you have no idea what's happening and don't watch the games.
Will you be watching your beloved Villa today, coward?
City supporter now, are we? Funny, I always had you down as a turncoat and a traitor.
The stats don't lie - Arsenal 35 points, Man United 22 points.
Mind the gap!
Kun could be out for a few weeks, Rooney & Suarez look good h) Hammers & h) Cardiff, but who else? Haz a) Arsenal? Lukaku a) Swans? Negredo a) Fulham? Or simply go 3-5-2 with Hazard B1? 3 Gooners h) Chelsea might be overkill, but I fancy a few goals. Having at least 2 active subs might be wise.
B2: Chiriches (if fit)
Are all Husbands who beat their Wives Monsters and always will be Monsters?
Or can they change their violent ways, their outlook on Women and the Human Race for the better?
If they do, should we forget their past and only focus on their present?
I doubt anyone will have the moral courage to even attempt an answer though!
In trouble again, Kipper?
What did you hit her for this time?
As to your question, your history of attacking women would suggest you're a hopeless case, you obviously pick on women because you're incapable of picking on men.
And, BTW, you're the last person who should be talking about moral courage.
Thanks for that.
I take it you think Mandela should be ashamed then, as he was brutal to some women in his previous relationships. They have even been included in the film.
He was a nasty man towards women in his younger days.
Again. Thanks for clarifying your opinion on the matter of abusive husbands
I knew it wouldn't be long before your true feelings about Mandela came through.
You're a snivelling coward, Kipper, scared to be yourself, hiding behind an ID, pretending to be someone else, even pretending to support another football team.
I don't think Mandela should be ashamed, but you do, he learned, you haven't, you came back here and in your first post you attacked Sweet.
You're a worthless piece of excrement, you always were.
...and another thing I forgot to mention. If Giroud had stuck away 2(or 3) of the 3 clear scoring opportunities he had, we would have been flying. I don't know what's gone wrong with a man who was sticking them away for fun not so long ago. Wenger's got to cover his #$%$ next month, and get someone.
