I would have liked Brentford to go up, small local fan base, decent group of players, real community team etc, but they’d get about four pint in the league next year if they were promoted.

 

Everton away win and a draw at Chelsea and that’d be it.

120 million gets you a few more than 4 pints even at London prices

You can currently get 4 pints just by walking around Brentford's stadium.

Bollocks, would rather have seen Brentford up!

Me too! A few weeks ago, they looked like they were going to pip West Brom at the post when they won 7 or 8 consecutive games before they lost to Stoke and Barnsley. Keeper with a right howler for the first tonight as well after looking good in the games Ive seen.

I wanted Brentford to come up once Forest missed out on the playoffs on the final day. I don't have any ties to either club (although apparently Dan Tana, who founded one of the more famous restaurants in Hollywood, used to sit on the board at Brentford), but I'm a fan of history and we've certainly got one with Forest. Brentford was just new, as I said last week I'm tired of Swansea and I don't really like Fulham either for that matter. Would've been fine with Cardiff I suppose.

Having said that, I knew they were fucked when I got the stream on 14 minutes into the first half of extra time and Fulham were lining up that freekick. Just knew it was going in. Oh well.

Arsenal have announced they are proposing 55 staff redundancies as the coronavirus pandemic continues to negatively impact the Gunners' finances.  In a statement made by the club's sporting and financial chiefs Raúl Sanllehi and Vinai Venkatesham on Wednesday, the north London club admitted that these cuts are necessary in order to make sure the club 'operates in a sustainable and responsible way'. Sanllehi and Venkatesham confirmed that investment in the first-team squad is a priority for the club and that a 30-day consultation period will begin on the redundancies.

Meanwhile lesser clubs laugh and talk of huge transfer windows and a new stadium.

Didnt the owner of Dan Tanas originally come from Yugoslavia, now Croatia (the area he came from). Or am i getting this mixed up with Musso and Frank's place?.

Cunt's trick from Arsenal, that. Kicking 55 employees onto the street and then wording the statement to basically say "you fans want BiG sIgNiNgZ, so in effect, these redundancies are on you." 55 £50k p.a. salaries works out at less than £3m. Unless they're shopping in 1998 then I can't see how this is going to alter their transfer plans much.

Agent led recruitment. So they’ll be a display cabinet for Joorchabian’s wares?

Read a few weeks back about their agent-led transfers in the future. That won't end well in the long run. 

 

Sacking scouts all over Europe. Maybe they've bought Football Manager and an editor. Cheaper that's for sure.

What has that got to do with Arsenal dismantling their scouting network in favour of agent-led transfers where players are recommended by agents?

 

We do our own scouting. We pay agents to negotiate deals once the player we want has been identified, not to scout players for us in the first place.

It’d be a bit of both I’d say, and this is Arsenal trying to copy our model.
