So I was scouring the internet and found a comment made about Jack Wilshere vs Rabiot:

"He was not great. He was average. Wilshere thinks too slowly to operate in the middle of the park, and is a terrible tackler. At best, he is a squad player. Wilshere is not physically dynamic enough to overcome his instincts. Hans, we do need players for the "here and now". Picking up Rabiot for 11 million would be smart. This kid has played over 30 games for PSG, at least 5 Champions League games -- and he is 19 years old. His skill set is high. And he is no clumsy mug, he is a gallant athlete -- something Arsenal does not have: Athletic players over 6'1". He is a here and now player that will help us win trophies."



I wanted to post this because maybe some points were valid but to say Jack didn't haven't good game is plain farcical just because he may have 'slipped' and almost and gave away a penalty. After all, after seeing the replay he did let his man beat him by running in the box but knowing he's a fighter he tried his best to recover as soon as possible.

But, the question will loom is Rabiot ready to be played in the middle as an Arteta replacement? Personally, no. He's too young and with youth comes a lack of wisdom you MUST develop through time on the pitch if you're to be in a position to dictate play. You are the person held responsible to marshall the game. He will add steel for sure but I'd expect him to get more game time by next season.

People say Chambers maybe ready to take on DM, I say no as well because of what I stated above. Being a CB is quite different from being in front of the defense (DM) which takes some knowledge of the game to see what's in front, sides and back of you.

Hi everyone, I'm gonna try and run a mini prediction game on the forum! I'm hoping there's enough interest to keep it going throughout, so take a few seconds to make your predictions by either replying to this post or posting on the new game thread.

How to Play: Pick 2 teams you think will win (can't pick 2 teams from 1 match)
Scoring: Correct guess = 20 - Rank of Team That Lost + Rank of Team That Won

--

This Week's Schedule

Burnley(19) v ManUtd(13)
ManCity(3) v Stoke(15)
Newcastle(17) v CPalace(18)
QPR(20) v Sunderland(11)
Swansea(4) v WBA(12)
WestHam(8) v Soton(14)
Everton(10) v Chelsea(2)
AVilla(7) v Hull(6)
Spurs(1) v Liverpool(9)
Leicester(16) v Arsenal(5)
So for example, if you pick Arsenal and they win, you get: 20 - 16 + 5 = 9 points. If you picked Leicester and they won, you get: 20 - 5 + 16 = 31 points. If you pick a team that doesn't win, you get 0 points.

--

My Picks:
Liverpool & Swansea to win
Liverpool and Soton
Liverpool and West Ham.
United and soton
Swansea and Man City
Arsenal and Everton

do we post here or on the forum??
Sokratis
Rabiot
Falcao/Cavani


In that order.
Socrates
Robot
Falcon

Messi, Schweinsteiger, T. Silva, Bendtner.

+1
Wasn't the Arsnl-Drtmd, PSG-Barca, City-Bayern, the most anticipated games over the last few years for the group stages??
Do UEFA get money, or money with the highest bidder when it comes to who gets to televise the games?, which makes me really wonder, are these draws really fixed, because once again, we can face Bayern if we pass through the groups stage, who both times we have played before, who had close encounters and had a very high amount of viewers globally...

So basically what im trying to say is, UEFA are illuminati!!! :p
+4
You could face Bayern or anyother non English club after group stage but I don't see why Arsenal cant be in group winner pot and get a more favorable draw I don't think Dortmund is a better side
actually it's boring to see the same match ups over and over. im sure barca is sick of milan and you guys are tired of bayern/dortmund by now.

wouldn't you like to play against real madrid? juventus? psg? exactly.
+3
Dude wtf
Haha I'm down with the conspiracy.
Cue X-Files music
Oly bright side of facing Dortmund is that our team usually sharpens up afterwards..
Been on Footytube exactly 5 years yesterday. Wow.
+2
Me too
At least I'm younger than u in that aspect :D
I was on a tennis forum for many years - something like 6-7 years - and then their website closed down earlier this year. Been registered for over 5 years here now. Here's to hoping that Footytube stands the test of time! :D
we are old now
Falcao is off to Madrid! Rumors that a loan has been agreed
Not so soon.....
Apparently they turned him down

hahahahaha I love Rosicky

This was on the Liverpool forum

Ludogorets were founded in 2001. just 3 years before Chelsea.

LOOOL.
+13
And 10 years before Man City.

I noticed that most of our Champions league fixtures are before or after a game against really hard teams.. p.s. i didn;t include Anderlecht games

Sept 13 Saturday - Manchester City (home)
Sept 16 Tuesday - BVB (away)

Sept 27 Saturday - Spurs (home)
Oct 1 Wednesday - Galatasaray (home)
Oct 5 Saturday - Chelsea (away)

Nov 22 Saturday - Man utd (home)
Nov 26 Wednesday - BVB (home)

Dec 6 Saturday - Stoke (away)
Dec 9 Tuesday - Galatasaray (away)
Dec 13 Saturday - Newcastle (home)
i know there are no easy games these days but stoke (away) then we fly to turkey (hostile environment) we play again 4 days later .. well you get the point..
+1
You're going as far as Stoke and Newcastle as 'hard teams', assuming you're picking the regulars above them that makes at least 8 teams. we cant play ourselves so that only leaves 11 'easy' opponents. So just under half the league are 'hard teams' and you're surprised we got them around just over half our champions league games. Seems perfectly reasonable but slightly leaning toward unfavourable.
+2
I'd definitely remove Man United in the list :P Just saying
+3
Dude, Stoke away is a hard game.

I also noticed you threw in ManUre as a "hard team". That's funny.
+2
i didn't comment on his choice of the 'hard teams', I agree Stoke away is a very difficult game. I only surmised his 'hard team' list and pointed out its nearly the same size as his 'easy team' list, so playing hard teams on half of the champions league games is quite logical.

You're comment regarding Man Utd forces me to point out we've only beat them once in (going on) six years, thanks for that.
+2
He's totally right to say that Stoke away is hard, the last time we won there was when Aaron broke his leg. That's ages ago.
+1
can we take our fingers off the keyboard and realise no one was talking about whether Stoke is a hard game?
Calm down Kapone :)

I think another win in Germany would be nice ;)
