    You wanted him gone some six years ago because you had become bored with him and Arsenal. Do you suppose people tormented Jebus because they were simply bored with him b?

    To be fair...when you got +£100m in the bank you can afford to be dignified, courteous and turn a blind eye to any negativity.

    True story.
    Absolute bollox - the Etxegoien part translates almost exactly to "profound aversion to dentistry".

    I did. Although I did admit at the time that there was no logical basis for my position whatsoever and that it was simply whim. Little did I know we'd replace him with someone who wasn't even interestingly terrible - just dreary, generic mediocrity.


    As for Jesus, that was the Jews you see, h. They didn't do it because they were bored, they did it because they're evil.

    It will be fascinating to see where he goes. Does he feel he still has something left to prove, or will he be content to just place-hold somewhere at some middling club.

    If he's missing the day-to day involvement with the likes of Wilsh and Jenks and #Welbz and all that sort then I think we can rule out any national team or Director of Neymar at PSG. And "leading clubs in Europe" includes practically anybody and everyone nowadays, doesn't it.

    As I say, fascinating.

The Frenchman parted company with Arsenal at the end of last season after 22 years as manager and has not worked since apart from occasionally as a TV pundit.

    Wenger is still based in London but will not work for another club in the Premier League, believing that it would be disrespectful to Arsenal after all his years there. He is now considering four concrete job offers, one understood to be as director of football at Paris Saint-Germain, another as the head coach of a national team, and two from leading clubs in Europe."
    "Plenty of strikers can score goals," he said, gesturing to the famous old stands casting shadows around us.

    "But a lot have found it difficult wearing the number 9 shirt for The Arsenal."

    I reckon that'll have been what the payoff was for.

    No b, it was the Romans who crucified him. The Jews merely betrayed him. Probably defaulted on a loan with ruinous compound interest.

    The Romans were just enforcing Judaic law, h. Can't blame 'em for that.

    And to be fair, he was bang to rights.

    Winning a European trophy would be a Thing, perhaps. Especially for someone who couldn't even win a League Cup.

    Director of Neymar at PSG.

    Celebrity role models are for losers with rubbish parents, imo.

    Oh, I see what you mean. Carry on
