You think Juve bought a dud goalie to replace Buffon? Nah, he's good.
Isn't that what a bottle job is ? Playing having the better of the game and then losing ? Long ago stopped listening to these ****s.
Hardly anybody cared when we sold him. It was more 'good riddance' than anything else if I remember correctly.
That takes major heart to stay in the game despite being outplayed and robbed of a penalty in the first half. That next level mentality is what Arsenal need, but for that we'll have to change our whole hiring policy. Wenger rarely has a Chiellini type player at the top of his transfer list and that's the problem. Our next manager needs to make some unglamorous but effective signings to bring the right mentality in the team and the fans will have to support him as he does so. Sorry but the likes of Özil and Mkhitariyan are just crowd pleasing signings, but they are just not the type of guys you want in your corner on a night like this
I can't speak for everyone but I was livid. It wasn't even one of those things you come to regret in hindsight, at the time I knew it was a terrible decision and in hindsight we'll realise that even more. Good goalies are hard to find.
I just checked his old thread. Some were angry about the him eventually going for 15m Euro, but not much was said about his ability. It was all 'that's peanuts in this market'. He was in the last year of his contract. I'm sure Wenger is gutted in hindsight. Tried to make an example of him for being a bit of a knob and it backfired pretty badly.
Chiellini is your old fashioned no nonsense defender. None of that playing out of the back bullshit and about doing the only job he’s got - not let the ball into the goal. Chiellini is nowhere near technically as good as Pique or as athletic as Varane but he is all about getting the job done.
This is why I want someone like Simeone or Conte at Arsenal (Allegri would be great too). Someone who can turn out current defenders into no nonsense defenders who are defenders first and foremost and then have additional attributes.
I was baffled you didn't bring him back after his incredibly successful loan spell. Cech was clearly on the slide and has gotten even worse.
Didn't think much of it when you sent him out on loan but he was legitimately awesome for Roma, yet Wenger somehow thought geriacech was a better option.
Some day, English football media will realise there is more to the game than energy and appearing to be dangerous.
A weakened Juve side did a tactical job on Spurs with nothing more than some elite level experience and two predatory attackers. Spurs were very lucky with the penalty also. All in all, a fairly comfortable evening for Juventus.
A North London side bottling it in the Ro16 of the CL.. where have I seen that again?
Finally got to watch the second half.
Joy to behold.
Spuds are diving wankers and that was a colossal choke despite the best efforts of the media to paint it otherwise.
Gratz to Juve.
We beat Chelsea all the time you fool
Seville will advance through ahead of these losers with that clown Sanchez.
When have Man United played good football in the last 6 years?
Thats actually a bit stupid from Nelson.
My God I would be over the moon with Chiellini at Arsenal, he would be amazing for us. Chiellni is what you call a real man, he is a f***ing warrior and a hideous and disgusting individual and thats exactly what we need. The guy is a world class defender and he reads the game so well. Also is very naughty with scratching down the neck and elbows into the throat of strikers, I love him.. and he is the exact type we need.
Arsenal fans are too obsessed with all this skill bullshit, its a load of nonsense. We need real men who read the game properly, especially in the defence.
The amount of times Chellini dominated England and our strikers couldn't get a inch out of him. The guy is what you call a real man. I know our senile Wenger would rather buy a 17 year old winger instead of real men like Chellini.. but anyhoo I would pay 500 Billion for him and feel like I got a huge bargain. We would go far with people like him
Really bad decision to let Sczesney go should've made him N.1 keeper but I'm glad he enjoying his time at Juve
Looks like his account was hacked he did confirm that.
Up by one and with away goal advantage going into the last 30 min, playing well and then end up losing the tie. Definition of a bottling really.
Next Spurs DVD:
Almost! made it to the QF
