It's simple. If the F.A bring in video technology then their pockets will be further emptied. What I mean by that is they like to fine managers for coming out and speaking about bad ref decisions. If video technology was in place now then things will be sorted on the pitch like rugby and everybody shakes hands at the end of the game and walks off because questionable decisions are answered on the field during the game. That would result in managers not needing to come out and slam the referees for poor decisions which would result in managers not recieving a fine and we all now the F.A like easy money and they sure do like fining managers/players for speaking their minds and speaking out against them.
After watching several games in Europe league i just did sure that

I have seen better banter when i go to stoke
Why Joke with God's Name? This is very disrespectful to my religion and u need to take it down.
^ The joke is on Arsenal, not God. Why is it disrespectful then, and specifically to your religion?
+3
It could have been worst, it could have been about ISIL/ISIS
Uh oh Tomikato you're in trouble now, you infidel you!
@naija- so your feelings was hurt therefore it has to be taken down? The world doesn't revolve around you and your feelings buddy
+4
If God is a football fan he's bias for sure
@Gohonaf, as true as that may be in the real world, the same rules that apply to not offending homosexual people and various races on this website surely apply to the religious as well, yes?

The post didn't offend me (I actually followed the twitter account because of it), but there's no need to be upset if he seriously reported it, and a mod removed it. That's why the "report" button is there after all.
Personally I think this is a wrongful deletion, there's no slander towards God or any other deity. The joke is on Arsenal and it's a good one. Anyone offended by this likely didn't read it more carefully.
Zilch pretty much summed up what i was going to post in response to you joey.
Yeah mate I get what you're saying, by no means am I offended either, I thought it was hilarious. I'm just saying he's well within his right to report it if he was.
@joeymac:
Naija's profile picture is of what appears to be a heart symbol. This Valentine's day i did not have a date. His profile picture, therefore, offends me.
I think i'll report it
+2
He is well within his rights to report it, no argument. But I think the mod that deleted it must've been busy at work and maybe didn't have the time to properly review, which happens sometimes after all we do have jobs. Ce la vie but the joke was a good one.

Poem
-------------------

All the hate on Wenger from the Monaco defeat is unwarranted
I think he pulled a masterstroke that wasn't well documented

He avoided unnecessary distractions like the champions league competition
To focus more on qualifying for this season's top 4 expedition

Messitup Ozil is not causing many terrors
Schoolboys are making arsenal errors

Salah has gone back to the "destroyer of London clubs" tag
Soldado messed up a chance that you wouldn't in FIFA even if you had lag

Superb penalties were on the order when Liverpool and Besiktas met
Istanbul brings fond memories for Liverpool, not so much now I bet
The night went wrong when Lovern's spot kick hit the roof of the net
Only this net was somewhere in Bulgaria making this a night to forget

So as Liverpool fans feel slightly less excited
Swans fans will love the fact that they did the double over Manchester United

RVP seems to have lost the mojo that made him special overall
Maybe the little boy inside him never played long ball?

United fans ask if 3 months have passed as their clock slowly ticks
Courtois was the only one capable of handling ashley barnes's kicks

Chelsea sign with tire company Yokohama as they reach an endorsement
As if Chelsea and the 'park the bus' joke needed extra reinforcement

:P

i guess the EPL teams aren't taking the Europa League by storm like people thought.
PL teams have been awful, but lets not ignore Everton
+7
Everton go far East, good luck to them. I think they'll do well in EL, but beware of the Italians lol :P
Credit to Everton but once they face a team of higher quality ie Napoli, Roma, Besiktas they will have some trouble.
Eh Besiktas...team of quality.
+5
Lets be real, Besiktas was not a team of quality. Liverpool just look like s**t in Europe this season.
Maybe not that much quality compared to Napoli or Roma but Besiktas produce one of the most hostile atmospheres In Europe.
^But can they beat Stoke on a cold and rainy Tuesday night?
Everyone is surprised that Bundesliga teams overperform in CL and English teams underperform.

Which league just took a month off and which league's teams have been playing twice a week for the past 3 months? Shouldn't be a surprise.
+6
idk Dortmund wasn't impressive at all against juve and i think the epl teams as a whole did have harder teams compared to the germen teams. I really see Bayer Leverkusen losing t A. Madrid in the return leg. I would love to see how these bundesliga teams would do against stoke. They can can be tougher than Barcelona.
+4
2nd place Wolfsburg got humped by 12th place Everton not so long ago.
+10
Also, did Manchester United not destroy some top german team 5-0 some couple years ago?

Really depends on how the teams line up tactically against each other and their strategy on that day. EPL teams (specially City and Arsenal) made huge tactical errors on the last two game days. Understandably the results are being used for league comparisons.

Personally, City going down 1-2 to a powerhouse like Barca is not something to be ashamed of or indicative of how badly England is doing.
+1
yeah tomi i'm starting to think the problem is tactics.

arsenal have more than enough quality to deal with monaco, and the did well in the group stages.

fergie knew how to consistently get us into the QF and SF and mourinho is the same. obviously you need a favorable draw and have to win your group to set yourself up for an easier R16 tie, but you also have to be a bit more pragmatic in champions league KO stages as away goals are killer. arsenal played like they were digging into a mid table side, didn't show enough respect to monaco by having a cam in CM, two attacking fullbacks, etc. it would have been fine if they took their chances tbh, but they gambled and lost horribly. i know part of the problem is injured players, but surely that lineup could have been more balanced. if midfield is light, play more defensively with your fullbacks to compensate, etc.

so yeah we would smash the german teams in the group stages but in the other stages we wouldn't be open enough to score 5 goals unless we already had an away goal advantage or were chasing a result (tie vs schalke, tie vs milan a few years ago and olympiakos last year come to mind although that was moyes).
+1
@Tomi, even just last year we handed it to Leverkusen (5-0) when they were 2nd in the Bundesliga and we were laboring in the league.
+1
@Joey - yeah actually that's the game I meant.
+1
After all, the result is indicative of how far behind english teams are compared to certain giants and a comparison is legit.
Back to the original post, a christmas break would be no harm for the premier league and help teams in the bigger picture
+3
@ManOnDMoon - EPL's philosophy is playing when the viewership wants to watch, and no better time than the christmas break for that. The philosophy is also one of the reason the EPL is making a killing in terms of sponsorship money. So that is something which is very unlikely to change.

What might happen though (and this is my thought) is that teams might build deeper squads and will have to adapt to rotationary measures to keep on playing non-stop. That is probably not a bad thing in itself. However, teams depending on individual players will have a hard time.
+3
rationalisations, rationalisations everywhere. Why are you people so unwilling to accept the premier league just isn't quite as good as you think it is?
+4
@ArtVandelay - rational talk is why forums exist. Let me know if you have another viewpoint.

Secondly, nobody here is glorifying or saying EPL is good. We are talking about tactical mistakes and the christmas break. Too much for you to digest?
+3
Chelsea have taken care of German teams in the CL group stages without much trouble the past couple years. Aside from Dortmund being amazing the past 2 years, the bundesliga have really only had one team excel in the CL.

If you break the CL teams into groups based on achievement, it might look like:
1st tier = Consistent powerhouses of the past 4 years: real, barca, bayern, chelsea (La liga: 2, PL:1, bundesliga: 1, others: 0)

2nd tier = teams that have been a big threat 1-2 years or teams that have consistently made the knockout round and been competitive in the knockout rounds: Dortmund, atletico, man u, arsenal, man city, juve, PSG, ac milan (la liga: 1, PL: 3, bundesliga: 1, italy: 2, france: 1)

you could make a 3rd tier of teams that do well and are there consistently, but don't put up a good fight in the knockout round, or teams that did ok/made the knockout round once or twice in the past 5 years, or teams that do well in europa: Shalke 04, bayer leverkusen, olimpiacos, galatasaray, inter milan, napoli, zenit, porto, shakhtar, celtic, valencia, malaga, tottenham, everton, basel, ~liverpool, marseille, cska moskow, lyon, benfica (la liga: 2, PL: 2, bundesliga: 2, italy: 2, france: 2...)

If you wanted to grade leagues based on that, you could give 1st tier 5 pts, 2nd 3, and 3rd 1:
la liga: 15, PL: 16, bundesliga: 10, serie a: 8, France 5 (but monaco will add them an extra 3)

of course that was all made up and somewhat subjective, but the point is that PL and La liga are pretty equal up at the top, then bundesliga is slightly ahead of italy, with france 5th
+1
Well Tomikato the viewers traditionally want to see boxing day. There is no need to expand this any further to the new year, and who cares for the FA Cup anyway when CL is the priority
I totally understand other countries don't give a damn for domestic cups

@ArtVandelay the premier league can be just as good. Not as well managed than others though
This will cheer you up

Madrid no final since 2002 after winning last year so don't come with the la liga bpl this and that BS.
BPL Is not UCL.

Do you talk to yourself a lot? There's an edit button my friend. Just edit your original comment

BPL > La Liga, La Liga is a 3 horse team
+15
^ How dare you say that?? Spanish teams have a great record against English teams and Spanish top 10 can dominate any of the BPL's top 3!
+17
^ Yeah but BPL has 6 genuinely world class teams who compete for highest honors every season, La Liga only has Real Madrid and Barca who are mainstays. You can't count Atletico's recent rise because they were in a slump until 2 seasons ago
