ARSEN

Soccer '13-'14 season

Recommended Posts

PS how cool is this pitch?! Southampton's groundsman has way too much time on his hands.

I can imagine Arsenal celebrating 4th place again like they've won a trophy!

Considering all the injuries Arsenal had, it is an achievement. If not for the injuries there is a good chance Arsenal would still be #1.

Whenever you lose Ozil, Ramsey, Wilshere, Walcott, Flamini and Kocelny for the majority of 2nd half of the season it takes a toll. That's only starters. They also lost Rosciski, Diaby, Jenkinson and few other back-ups.

Looks like Remy will likely join Arsenal. Good winger. Adds much needed pace.

Sunderland aren't out of it yet, as Fulham, Cardiff and Norwich are contesting a punishment Sunderland received for playing an ineligible player - they got a fine rather than a points deduction which is usually given. AFC Wimbledon in League 2 got a 2 or 3 points deduction for the same, so I think they have a case.

Sunderland won't get a points reduction. They reported the issue as soon as it was brought to their attention and immediately resolved it. He was properly registered upon arrival at the club I believe. I think the issue arose after a loan spell. I think the fine will stand.

I like to see lots of goals being scored, so I watched a lot of Man City and Fulham matches this year. That worked pretty well.

 

Regardless of whether they win the league or not, I think Liverpool picked up a lot of American fans this year. Very exciting to watch.

This might be a blah final Sunday.

 

If Liverpool loses at Palace on Monday and City beats Villa on Wednesday then the race for 1st is over due to City's GD. Chelsea has GD on Arsenal so they're 3rd and Gunners are 4th. If Sunderland gets a point against West Brom, then they'll have GD on Norwich if they finish at 36. West Brom also has GD on Norwich if they finish at 36 as well. Everton is going Europa and Spurs are 1 point or Man U dropping points from joining them.

BR is going to go all out. I hope I get off work early. Boss man was at Quail Hollow all tourney I should be able to get off early and watch the game on TV at least. Fat chance.

I'll have to stream it via live extra.

 

BR says we can win on GD. Obviously, I don't really believe that, but it's good to hear he wants to try. I just hope that sort of relentless attack doesn't play into CP's hands. At our best, we could certainly score 6 goals. Keeping a clean sheet is another thing...

I've come to the realization that we aren't quite there but I'm happy with the season and I'm excited to see how good we can be with some additions to our Defense.

Suarez is new Bale. He pretty much the guy at Liverpool. Leading goal scorer and leading goal assists. Suarez alone accounts for almost half of Liverpool goals (either thru scoring or assisting). Insane statistic.

I'm actually a little nervous about whether we can actually build and sustain here. We are going to have approximately £60m to spend on transfers this summer. Rodgers says he wants to bring in 6 players. That sounds like he's not looking for any big signings.

 

Not to mention we are going to have to compete with transfer figures of £100m+ for clubs like United, Arsenal, Chelsea, and City. And even though we will likely finish top 2 in the league this year, all of those destinations will be more attractive than us.

 

Next year's top 4 battle is going to be intense.

Who United is going to sell?

Mueller, Reus and Kroos will cost around £100m.
