    I'd say Ozil is one of Arsenal's few legit world class players, along with Aubameyang. Maybe Bellerin in a couple of years and Cazorla when fit.
  2. The January 2018 transfer thread

    I really hope it doesn't come to having to play Nyambe at centre half, that would not end well for us or him for that matter I suspect.

    A thousand times no.

    He captained the U-20's in a tournament where each game finished 0-0 if memory serves. Never captained the U-21's.

    Dyche has the run of the place from what I hear, think he has little desire to move on just yet anyway (even without the contract extension).
  6. Poll: Mowbray - stick or twist?

    Or perhaps people voted way back when (like me) and simply don't have the interest to change it (also me)
  7. Shrewsbury Town - 13/1/18

    Well if they're second in the league, just goes to show how far an organised team can get in this poor division. Very little quality and bar their number 7, possibly none at all! For me our penalty was very soft, couldn't believe it when it was given, though after the stick he got for giving them a penalty (coupled with bottling the red card), it was inevitable we would get a decision. Great performance from the players yesterday with Mowbray getting it spot on. Momentum is surely with us now and maybe a few seeds of doubt cast in the Shrewsbury players heads, being beaten in the manner that they did and us gaining ground on them.
  8. Didn't Orr put a photo on social media of him laughing at the Rovers badge or something? Whilst wearing Rovers kit too!

    At least he didn't say 'on the grass'.
  10. Boxing Megathread

    Lomachenko Rigondeaux is finally among us.....possibly the world's best offence against the world's best defence, two double Olympic gold medallists and their combined amateur record is 859 wins 13 defeats (Rigo with 12 of those). Tough one to call but if pressed I would go for Lomachenko, heavier guy and his weight class though Rigo has a reach advantage and a great jab, not to mention a nasty left counter. The Cubans fight so calculated though and can see it being hard for Loma if he tries to draw him out.
  11. Did anyone notice their goalkeeper, before taking a goal kick from his hands he would spin around 360 degrees before doing so. I know some footballers have superstitions but that seems a bizarre one to me!

    Probably make a right pig's ear of it.

    All he needs is the chicken to go with those beans and we would have a real player on our hands.
  14. team for rotherham

    Your first paragraph beat me to it! Free kicks were definitely his main weakness for me, but still a truly world class keeper and the best I've ever seen for Rovers.
  15. team for rotherham

    Good win last night, from a really good performance. For me everyone played well and did they part but as for the standouts: Downing - Both him and Sir Charles had a good game and he looks an improvement on the shaky Ward. I thought aerially he wasn't very strong but that could be because he was up against a big lummox up front. Crucially, from last night anyway, he knows when to play it and when to lump it. I like that. Two games and two clean sheets. Antonsson - MOM on the night and for me also. Looked great out on the left, the full back couldn't cope with his feet, pace or movement. He couldn't get near him all game practically, dropping into pockets of space. Never stopped running and he knew the full back had nothing for him. To cap it off he popped up with a goal. Samuel and Bennett (First half in particular) - The centre halves had no answer to Samuel's work rate and movement, should have scored a couple though. Bennett as usual put 100% in and had the measure of their full back, managing to put a couple good balls into the box. Offers good protection for Caddis. Chapman - Now this lad is exciting to watch. I don't want to say he's too good for this level as I haven't seen him play 90 minutes so far (in League One) but if he can replicate his play over a full game then he's certainly too good. Fearless, a young player with lots of confidence. What struck me last night is, for what is the first time in a long while, we actually had runners that ran beyond the striker and into the box! They didnt have an answer for it. Dack was buzzing around nicely and will score goals for us if he keeps getting into the box. Smallwood worked hard and threw some nice tackles in as per.
