    Well tell that to club directors then, because that's how they see it. If Wenger was constantly winning the FA Cup but finishing 5th he would have been sacked ages ago. It was a bit different for Chelsea, they had a title-winning squad and could much more easily pick themselves back up and go again. If Liverpool don't make the UCL, it's pretty much back to square one.

    The attitude hasn't led to that at all, Arsenal just suck in Europe because for years they have let their best players go, and then come unstuck against the big boys in knockout stages who possess all the kind of quality Arsenal have sold over the years. It's not like Arsenal throw the UCL like you seem to be suggesting.

    No, you shouldn't give a f**k, because the UCL is actually an achievement. The EL isn't.

    I very much agree with the last part of that,m from haffa, I'm over talking about Man U. However ridiculous nicks argument is and will remain it's simply not worth the effort to continue discussing Man U!! :)

    If it's not worth the effort for you to discuss Man Utd then why should I care? Stop contributing to it then. It's more interesting discussion than you've ever generated.

    My team Huddersfield Town are in the play-off final against Reading tomorrow morning (2am NZT)
    Got the day off work, got the bourbon ready and the snacks.

    I have never, EVER been so excited for a sports match in my life!

    They are fun games but extremely nerve racking if your team are in it given what's at stake.

    Have a good night!! :)

    On that note, am happy for Blackpool after gaining promotion back to league 1.

    The last 6 years has been quite a ride for the fans.

    Hoping Huddersfield get up for Danny Ward. He's on loan from LFC, don't see him getting too much of a run with us tbh so success with HT hopefully lands him a permanent move.

    Izzy Brown has been a star for Huddersfield, I'd like to see him go on loan there again next season. He's someone I do think like chalobah can contribute to Chelseas first team in a eat or two.

    No doubt he'll get a fair bit of preseason game time. But yeah, a PL loan would probably be the best outcome

    I hope we can get Brown and Palmer back permanently (as well as Mooy)

    I think I aged 15 years within the space of a penalty shoot out.

    Palmer is a chance, there is no way Izzy is let go on the cheap.
