Warnock sacked, we almost made it to 2015 before the first manager was canned this season! Much improved.
Inter are speaking with Arsenal today, DiMarzio reports. Mancini's side have bid £1.5m to take Podolski on loan with £4.7m buy-clause.

Bit weird, why not just outright buy him.
They don't have money to waste. The last guy brought in many signings and inter are broke. The loan reduces risk.
Fair enough.
Why do we care about Inter's financial situation though? I.5 for a loan move is not a good move for us considering Podolski usually comes in clutch when called upon.

Podolski is worth so much more than that it's sickening.
Italian teams are always looking for a bargain with out of favour players in other leagues
Kinda like us........ ;)
Maybe one day Flamini, you'll win the Motm award. :P

Koscielny has a 'small chance to be in the team' and Chamberlain has an 'even smaller chance'.
Kristoffer Olsson has signed for FC Midtjylland on a permanent basis. Good luck to him, one star for the future.

Also, Lorient are to put in a loan request for Yaya Sanogo in January, reports L'Equipe
Sanogo should go if Podolski stays. And vice versa.
Only 2-3 points away from 4th place.....wooohooo...come on Wenger!

I really liked the freekick by Giroud though, looked like it was going in till the keeper made a great save.

wasn't close enough to the corner of the goal

invalid argument.

Did you guys really think Sanchez did that well? I didn't watch the game, but from the Sanchez vs QPR highlights, it seemed to me his final ball was absolutely woeful, lost the ball in midfield a few times, and as usual, spent too much time on the ball and slowing down our game. His incomplete to complete passes ratio is like 2:1, sigh... Great attitude, great headed goal, great dibble and assist, but everything else was average. He needs to think pass-first, dribble-second. A simple pass is completely fine when there's no opportunity to create anything because at least it keeps our possession game ticking, makes the opponent chase the ball around, gets his teammates involved. His performance today is just as poor as against liverpool, except qpr gave a bit more space for him to run around.
+3
I understand your point, same with Santi a few months ago, remember? dribbling in our half of the side. But when you don't have any support a front of you, dribbling through your way successfully is great. Though, passing and working with the team is great, I believe he's trying, I mean half of us has forgotten that its his first season in PL and with us.

Anyways, I believe he offers something unique, world class, skills, etc. Like Ronaldo at Man United years ago, Suarez at Liverpool, Messi at Barcelona, etc. I believe he'll be even better next season, he will gel with others around him even more, as a team we will gel even more and things will flow even better. Past seasons, we've had star players leaving and all. But, if we manage to stay together, with a few reinforcements, we will be better. Just know everyone needs time to gel. #COYG
Yeah, he has done a lot of turning over by dribbling too much, but the plus about that is that it draws players in towards him and opens up others. The part we're harking on him is that his success rate of finding said open players is lower than we'd like.

Maybe the team needs time to adjust to his style and recognize when he's doing this by getting in these spaces sooner. I see him almost like Hazard does for Chelsea, he pulls players in, makes great dribbles, and creates chances from nothing.
+1
Well he acted as our outlet today and won a lot of fouls which if he played for another team, 2-3 of those foul freekicks would have lead to goals we just suck at set pieces. I agree at times he holds on too long but today with 10 men I think it was smart to have him go all the way to the end of the pitch away from our goal and draw a foul.

What annoys me is when he won a freekick near the halfway line Tex decided to take it. He ordered everyone up the field, kicked poorly as usual and we were exploited when we were in an advantageous position.
Indeed, things could have been much worse without Alexis though. Sure, his final ball may have been lacking at times and the missed penalty as well, but he gave it 110%, which is the main reason why we managed to deny QPR. Even with 10 man, the presence of Alexis gave QPR alot to think about, probably why they couldn't press on. Alexis played the role of at least 2 players. So, even with his flaws, he is still by far the MOTM for me.
Even with his flaws he is by far the best player at our club period.

I've always said fans are alot more willing to forgive a player's deficiencies of they deliver.

And Sanchez has literally carried our club on his back.

+2
Not football related.

Whoever is responsible for the PSN being down I hate you I really do, been going on for a couple of days now. I don't understand how they can't find a bunch of hackers who are openly claiming the responsibility to these attacks, they can do so much technology wise but can't find these low life's. Incredible really, totall mockery. Can't even play NBA 2K because apparently I need to be signed into PSN.
+1
Hide yo kids, hide yo wife, they be hacking everybody out here.
You don't understand how ddos attacks work, that's what they're doing. It's not even hacking, it's a poor man's excuse for hacking, it's like clogging a toilet.

Virtually untraceable, you gain proxy access to many other computers and use them simultaneously to cause heavy traffic and slow everything down to a crawl. They aren't skilled enough to remotely crash the server(which could be tracked with a lot of effort), they're essentially doing what we accomplish here sometimes, killing the server bandwidth and bringing everything to a grinding halt.
+4
And there's no way around it? Sony better sort their s**t out. People pay good hard earned for their products, buying memberships and other stuff, money doesn't grow on trees for us.
@Zilch

Well said, alot of people mainly the media think DDos attacks are actually hacks. They're not, they're just flooding the servers.

And the thing is any shmuck can do it, it really is a poor man's excuse for hacking.

However it's extremely effective because it's difficult to pin point the traffic and where it's coming from.

It's really difficult to stop which is why it can be used against the major companies.

There are ways to minimise the damage but honestly there's not much that can be done to combat it completely without effectively shutting off connection to the servers.
Its psn and Xbox live. Both got "hacked" i think. Its annoying but as Zlich said its really hard to prevent something like this. At least this wasnt like last time when the hackers were able to get personal information.
Luckily for me I just moved and I dont have internet setup yet so I dont feel anything about this as a result. The only downside is that I can't watch the arsenal games either :(
No offense guys, as an avid gamer I hate to defend the people who did this (defend is the wrong word), but it's kind of wrong to describe it as "a poor mans excuse for hacking" when it not only works, but it's impossible to trace. Seems like a resourceful mans way of hacking, or "clogging the toilet".
+2
I'm not a big online gamer anyway in terms of PSN or XBox live.

I like local Coop or single player games.
Dougie27: the basic premise is you create rootkits, Trojans etc to gain backdoor access to computers across the internet or use other means to gain remote access ie gather IPs and so on. You then simultaneously activate all of these to use up the bandwidth of the server by sending many packets of data across the internet from each source, the easiest way is to rapidly "ping" each IP thus crippling performance. A really skilled hacker would simply attack the source and shut it down using a proxy server to remain invisible from security measures. That's why I call them amateurs, they have no idea how to do a real hack, you can learn how to perform a DDos attack from f*****g Google.

Viper: theoretically it's possible to create a big enough server that can survive a massive amount of traffic but it's not realistically feasible. The best defense is for thousands of average computer users like yourself and many others, to tighten up security on their desktop and stop allowing remote access to be gained so easily.

It's far too easy to gain remote access, get personal information etc, heck from here in Australia I could tell you what street you live on.

Btw I'm no expert so any IT gurus please feel free to correct me so I have a better understanding of this.
+1
Clogging the toilet. That's more than enough to explain the s**t thats been happening to xbl and psn.

Pity y'all console peasants lol

besides, sony is in serious s**t after falling to the other hackers demand to not release the movie 'the interview' in theaters. hackers rule the world, scary :(
LOL Skool , that pic is amazing

BTW i'm not sure if same was happening yesterdays ( about 12 hrs earlier ) because i was able to login and play COD online , perhaps middle east servers were still running ?
Some of the peasants get Halo exclusively.

*Cries*

But yes, custom built PCs are the best.
Urgh i bought a 1 year sub for PS Plus only to come home and find out the servers were "hacked". How long do you guys reckon itll last? Frustrating as hell, do these guys have anything better to do than to f**k with the whole world? What exactly do they benefit from this?

Malik, Asia's servers are still down sadly.
Lol people's naked private pictures get leaked and everyone celebrates, shares and saves, but you can't sign into PSN and it's the end of the world. Imagine how it feels to have pics or personal info leaked from the hacks & past hacks.
