  1. Personally, I don’t blame these ‘blogettas’ as you very aptly refer to them, but rather those who click on the links and perpetuate their existence.

  2. Mark Overmoon

    Isn’t that like saying, I don’t blame the media for creating ‘fake’ news, but rather those that believe it.

    Hardly justification is it?

  3. If at all Arsenal have it their minds to sign Jonny Evans this window, the possibility of that signing happening on or before the deadline day is looking remote and could be off the table as Evans was reported to have suffered a hamsring injury in the WBA FA Cup match away to Liverpool yesterday. But as to what grade the hamstring is, it was not made known. But if Arsenal are still interested to sign a top centreback this window, I think if they redirect their radar to Ahmed Hegazi, the Egyptian centreback at WBA, he could give Arsenal a big value for their money as his asking transfer fee by WBA should be far less than the £25m they are demanding for Jonny Evans this window.

    And regarding to the likelihood of Arsenal completing the deal for the signing of Aubameyang from Borussia Dortmund this window after their reported 2nd bidding fee of over £50m to sign the striker was rejected by Dortmund, Arsenal may not make a 3rd bidding to sign the player. For, Arsenal who are being guided by Stat DNA that must have said the over £50m fee Arsenal have submitted to sign the player is enough to get him signed and should not exceed the amount. But despite Stat DNA assessment on the player transfer fee limit, but if Arsenal are still keen to bring the player to the Emirates Stadium this January window, they may take one last extra step on deadline day to launch a 3rd and final bidding for the player signing closer to Dortmund asking fee to do the business. But not all the fee they are asking for the player would Arsenal submit.

  4. Off topic

    Lee Mason eh?
    The home crowd in n5 once seranaded this mule from Riley’s stable. Rightfully so.

    There is nothing wrong is asking why the people who say they care about English Football should be tolerating these hapless and incompetent clowns.

  5. I’ll say it again!

    VAR – what is it good for?

    Absolutely nothing!

    I’ll say it again ‘VAR’ – what is it good for?

    Absolutely nothing!

    Whooa Whooa Whoooooa ah!

    All in all it’s just another brick in the wall.

  6. Or VAR is being intentionally undermined by misuse, by those incumbents, who are as incurably bent as Stephen Fry and Kevin Spacey, holding hands at a chemsex festival.

    I actually have a load of time for both men, so don’t sue me! Kevin, just tell them it’s obviously cultural, and don’;t be held to randsome. Stevie, I used your title and positive expression of appropriate swearing to win a case, latterly.

    I mean really, don’t sue me, it was my opinion, in jest!

  7. Dwain – “who are as incurably bent as Stephen Fry and Kevin Spacey, holding hands at a chemsex festival.” – Lovely bit of light homophobia there.

    “I actually have a load of time for both men” – What?! You ACTUALLY have time for both men, even though they’re gay?! Wow, that’s so admirable!

    Although, I do agree that VAR is intentionally being misused.
