RE: [VIDEO] Arsenal: 2019/2020


Well that was enjoyable.
Another gift from a goalkeeper
Xhaka getting a nosebleed.
An assist for Auba's second worthy of Gerrard
and low and behold we have a new player who can bang them in from a distance.
We actually look like a team now we're up and running again.

All rounded off by Chelsea losing to West Ham.

Oh and Saka's signed on the dotted line.
Happy days.

RE: [VIDEO] Coronavirus, anyone starting to get worried?

One plus point last I heard they are optimistic about our vaccine trial and if successful they could have 40 million doses by January which will be 20 million to be treated as it's two doses a fortnight apart.
NHS and key workers take priority and then UK population before it's made more widely available.

I'm just hoping they might not let him back in, or at least lock him up for 14 days if they do.

Is anyone keeping a running total of how much this bunch of clowns is wasting? The cost of Brexit has already exceeded our total contributions to the EU since joining and it ain't anywhere near over yet.

RE: [VIDEO] Arsenal: 2019/2020

Yay into the semis.
Against City.

If we can keep everyone on the pitch, in one piece and play like the first 20 mins of the league game last week.

Last two matches I'm getting a little bit of George Graham's 'One nil to the Arsenal' vibe. We seem to be settling for the one goal if we go in front and letting the opposition wear itself out on us.
A dangerous tactic without better players than we have but can't argue with the results.

Unsurprisingly Paddy Power have us as the outsiders of the four 9/1 if you fancy a tickle.

RE: [VIDEO] Coronavirus, anyone starting to get worried?

Cock up not conspiracy.

We've done this to ourselves. We are now governed by social media. How many of those now most in the public eye are famous for being famous or have leveraged a minor talent into a major asset.

Trump. American Apprentice and general, always on screen, blowhard.
Johnson. Journalist. HIGNFY, comedy relief and also always on screen bloviator.

Personality and public profile is now valued above ability.
Gove actually states We've had enough of experts. Yet now he, Johnson and co assert we are following 'The Science' until the science becomes inconveniently different to the direction they wish to go.

Both the USA and the UK had a plan in place to cope with this epidemic but in the case of the USA threw it out of the window because anything with Obama's fingerprints on it was, in their eyes, evil and in the UK was just ignored as irrelevant or inconvienient.

I'm sorry I don't buy any conspiracy theory attached to any of this as I don't think any of them have the intelligence or ability to even find 'Conspire' in the dictionary.

"Some of these things I don't really understand why we don't know yet."

Seems there's an awful lot we don't know.
Never mind have you got it but how about have you had it.
If you have can you get it again or are you immune.
Why do some get it and show no symptoms.
Why, irrespective of health or age, will it kill one person and just stop the other smelling the roses or tasting his chips.

This is not me complaining in any way. I know there's people working overtime trying to answer these questions. 
I would like a little more scientific commentary though. Rather than Johnson and co casting about not knowing what to do but telling us to do it anyway.

RE: Keir sacks Garth

With a deep sigh and a high degree of resignation I'll probably waste my vote
and go Lib Dem again.
Reason?
Electoral reform. I live in one of the safest Labour seats so my votes worth nothing in the present system.

RE: [VIDEO] Arsenal: 2019/2020

So we won a match.
A lovely bit of opportunism from Nketiah and Willock following in and never giving up for the second.

Can't say I was that happy with giving them so much of the ball in the second half but they didn't trouble our goal that often and Martinez was good enough when they did.
I'm not that unhappy with Martinez taking the spot while Leno's out. He's a decent enough keeper and who knows how he might improve with some regular games.

If we manage to get Europa League then fine but I'm not going to lose any sleep if we don't.

Not very Long Bailey.

A group of left wing, presumably Corbynistas, wanted to meet with Starmer over the sacking and got a firm no.

Given it was inevitable by now there will be a significant slice of City fans smiling that Chelsea now may edge United out of the Champions League.

I won't say I didn't get it as I'm aware of what I was supposed to be getting.
Just no thanks, not for me.
In the same bracket as Florence Foster Jenkins
or even Ivor Cutler, much championed by John Peel.

I was following this a lot last night and I'll admit to a pretty wide smile while doing it.
Is this some one you follow Pete or just happened on him?
Just on the evidence of that I'm kind of surprised he's got that amount of subscribers.
