    Yes. I think his point is that these people are no longer "Arsenal"; they no longer "sents els colors del seu club", as they say in Foreign.

    For instance, we never placed any special, uncommon value on Cole's one-of-our-ownness, did we. And so on. Whereas once, it would've been enough to make him captain.

    But Klopp has nicer gnashers, apparently

    Liverpool have spent a lot of money, but in recent seasons, the have made about £250M by selling Sterling, Suarez and Coutinho, while we have let contracts run down and lost players on the cheap.

    True but that's not Emery's fault. Hopefully Ramsey will be the last of these balls ups

    Off-topic, I would argue that not enough value is placed on Cole generally. For my money, he's the one English player of the last 20 years who would consistently have been there or thereabouts in a World XI. The fact that he was a gobshíte tends to obscure his excellence as a player.

    But this is about perceived worth, not track record. Klopp's stock is currently at a level that would preclude his next step being to us. It would be a step down.

    Are you seriously comparing their records?

    Two league titles with Dortmund v one with PSG.

    They're challenging for the league, are in the CL and have just lost their first game this season. They also stuffed us 5-1.

    How are they much of a muchness with us right now?
