Charlton Athletic's marketing team using some desperate tactic's

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
+1
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.
+5
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.
+3
2nd place Wolfsburg got humped by 12th place Everton not so long ago.
+8
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.
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 not 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).
@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.
@Joey - yeah actually that's the game I meant.
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
@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.

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?
This will cheer you up

We can't expect English clubs to dominate year and year out it happens...
+1
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.
+1
Do you talk to yourself a lot? There's an edit button my friend. Just edit your original comment
+14
BPL > La Liga, La Liga is a 3 horse team
+11
^ 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!
+13
^ 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
+11
English navy > Spanish Armada
+16
^ ROFL

Lol Cheshire's talking to himself as well...

+3
^are u kidding me? This talk is about league with 4 teams in UCL only!!!
+3
^who cares Serie A along with La Liga has won as many UCL.

French League who?
+4
TheCheshireCat wins at internet !!!
+2
another year and another shocker for england in the CL. obviously not over yet but liverpool out, arsenal and city one foot out the door. i guess city has a tough draw so thats not as big a shocker, but the other two are a bit surprising.
+2
if this shitt continues for next 2-3 years, england could fall out of top 3 in coefficient ranking.
+3
^and possibly lose a CL spot
No just making out of the group stage helps you're coefficient plus Europa results too Everton and Spurs are looking great i'm hoping one of the two wins Europa or even Liverpool
+2
^Yes god forbid Liverpool, a team you have absolutely no historical basis to have some grudge against, will win a competition that has nothing to do with your squad.
+1
Maybe a good thing if we lose a CL spot if this trend goes on, give the whole League a lesson to learn and improve from the back front.
Premier League sucks
Liverpool knocked out of CL group stage
City Losing vs Barca
Arsenal getting trashed vs monaco xD
And Chelsea draws vs PSG (Chelsea being the only hope of the PL)
The problem I have with English team in CL is that they're too damn confident going into their European fixtures.

One of the main reasons why its been tough for English teams to do well.
But guys you can have tougher games when you go to Stoke.
+7
I almost forget that we were actually in the Cl.
We threw the towel against Madrid, beaten by Basel and Ludogorets.. Oh, I missed Benitez era.
+5
Is it just me or the referees in PL stopped pointing on the penalty spot? There were multiple penalty shouts in two Premier league matches (Soton - Liverpool, Chelsea - Burnley) and none of them were answered by referee. Did they change the rules for giving penalties or the referees had a bad day or they weren't sure enough (bad positioning - they didn't see it clearly) to give a penalty for those?
I'm not for giving a lots of penalties since I think that only good team can win a match without penalty kicks. Still, at least one penalty in that match should've been given to Soton.
+3
Atkinson couldn't have had better positioning for the Chelsea game
Maybe they gettibg to old or "unfit"
+1
Race for Champions League:

3. Arsenal 48 pts - 79% Top four percentage.
4. Man u 47 pts - 45%
5. Soton 46 pts - 37%
6. Pool 45 pts - 27%
7. Totty 44 pts - 13%

Source: ESPN power index.
I would expect Liverpool with slightly lower odds with the series of upcoming games and the fact that we are still in the Europa and FA cup. Also, in the start of the season you'd expect man u running about equal with Arsenal, no? No arguing about Arsenal's odd.. they've already reserved a spot in top four.. campaign / conspiracy theory.

Conspiracies everywhere lol
