  1. Re: Official Arsenal Thread Yeah it would be a gamble given the relatively high fee, but he has delivered everytime he climbed a step (from Brugges to 1st team Sporting and when assuming starting lineup in the NT). I'm of course biased, but I think the risks here are minimal for Arsenal and it's very good value money
  2. Re: Official Arsenal Thread Arsenal reaches 27 M for William Carvalho. Sporting willing to sell under the 35 M tab if there are certain Arsenal players involved (Gnabry and Coquelin amongst the wanted)
  3. Re: Official Arsenal Thread Wilshere is having a marvellous match! End it right away please
  4. Re: PORTUGAL – 1st and 2nd Division extensive thread - Discussion Thread One game into the league, he started at the bench (Sarr is the starter). But, if you have him, keep him he's very good and will get many games.
  5. Re: Official Arsenal Thread I agree, plus Campbell definetely deserves to be squad member this season, he is up to it.
  6. Re: Official Red Devils Thread It wasn't only at the WC, he was great all season long with Sporting, playing CB on a four man defense. Fully disagree with Tim Vickery
  7. Re: Official Chelsea FC Thread Fully agree.
  8. Re: PORTUGAL – 1st and 2nd Division extensive thread - Discussion Thread Mané's best position is AM, the coach Marco prefers André Martins atm for that role.... Nani's coming would threaten Carrillo and/or Capel mainly

  10. Re: PORTUGAL – 1st and 2nd Division extensive thread - Discussion Thread Hoping that Clasie doesn't come, realise the squad would become super strong but that would mean less game time for very exciting players like Ruben Neves, Oliver Torres and/or Evandro, Carlos Eduardo
  11. Re: The Politics Thread Here they are, the defenders of the opressed people of Gaza. http://www.thetimes.co.uk/tto/news/world/europe/article4177754.ece?CMP=SOC-Twitter-thetimes-28_07_2014-468-0-0-0 This is simply terrifying.

  13. Re: Official Arsenal Thread Hmm not for me thanks, never really liked Song he is very much like Vermaelen way to clumsy in defensive covering and a bit to reckless in tackling. Albeit he was very good in possession
  14. Re: Official Arsenal Thread Nope, just CM really.
  15. Re: Official Arsenal Thread Nanana nananananana Girouuuuuuuuuuuud!:D:D:D
  16. Re: The Politics Thread Going through some (mostly leftist) European press on the Gaza situation these days always refers me to the term coined by August Bebel (founder of Social Democracy in the XIX century): "The Socialism of fools". Here is some insight: http://www.newstatesman.com/politics/2014/01/radicalism-fools-rise-new-anti-semitism http://www.standpointmag.co.uk/dialogue-january-february-13-the-socialism-of-fools-anthony-julius-nick-cohen-daniel-johnson-anti-semitism-the-left-judaism?page=0%2C0%2C0%2C0%2C0%2C0%2C0%2C0%2C0%2C0%2C2
  17. Re: PORTUGAL – 1st and 2nd Division extensive thread - Discussion Thread Forgot about Cancelo, this one to Valencia. So... three young gems being shipped out to Coruña, Valencia and Monaco. All three clubs with close ties to Superagent Jorge Mendes (rumours reporting that these 3 youngsters coould all be sold to Jorge Mendes for 30M, like André Gomes was some months ago). Also rumours that Benfica (mostly via its president LFV) is highly exposed to a recent bankrupcy of a well known Portuguese financial group, thus having trouble to refund short term debt ranking 150M - Benfica has, since January, gathered 100M with the sales of Matic, Rodrigo, Oblak, Siqueira, Markovic, Garay and André Gomes. Summer with lots of question marks about SLB.
  18. Re: PORTUGAL – 1st and 2nd Division extensive thread - Discussion Thread And also Cavaleiro to Coruña on loan. Weird stuff going on at Benfica right now...........
  19. Re: Official Arsenal Thread Great! Now AFC can focus interely on bringing in William Carvalho:D:D
  20. Re: Official Arsenal Thread Quintero rumours very strong in Portugal, FCP asking €25M Arsenal only willing to pay €20M
  21. Re: Official Arsenal Thread I don't know where you guys are picking that info from William Carvalho, nothing abouth that here in Portugal. Me personally, I would love it to be true, he's just what Arsenal need for the middle
