Premier League 2016/17

So the insult was to Rooney? :wink:

I disagree… at what point between the second goal being scored and Rooney coming on that the game was won is open to debate but I would argue against it being exactly when the 2nd goal was scored.


#202

obvious over the year he was not rated - yeah could have brought him on for last 10 mins but , the picture and history shows him being the captain who lifted the cup.

think he’ll do ok at everton


#203

Sure Ajax had only 3 shots on target the whole night … the match was well won at 1-0 never mind 2.

Poor Rooney - the club captain deserved better treatment than 30 seconds - he’s not exactly a liability. I’d have told Jose to f*** off if I was called on with less than a minute to go - but I’m a bit headstrong like Al at times .

He got more game time and saw more action when he was 16 … but let’s not go there …

That was probably three more than United had in normal time of the 1999 Champions’ league Final.


#205

That was easier than I thought!!!


#206

Cmon you Gooners!!


#207

Super Gunners - fully deserved winners. Feel a bit sorry for gents like Terry and Costa … :joy:


#208

Will it merely paper over the cracks though?


#209

It would be Giroud to talk about Wenger getting the Mertesacker now - he could be Welbeck next season but it Ospina great game …


#210

I agree, all five should leave the club.


#211

Well deserved win for Arsenal but it does just paper over the cracks.
Delighted that a dive was punished though I still believe it should be a straight red.

On the PL itself, Joleon Lescott has played for relegated clubs in two consecutive seasons now. Legend.


#212

Well said, hard to believe people still defend him.


#213

Not as popular? Understatement of the century! There used to be individual club threads with hundreds of posts. What changed lads?

By the way, which ‘United’?


#214

Scunthorpe


#215

I would LOVE IT if Super Kev made The Scunnies great again


#216

Appears to be something seriously underhand in Spanish football, particularly at Real Madrid.


#217

is a lot of it to do with image rights held offshore?


#218

Is that not liable for tax?


#219

it is but they don’t declare it in Spain, they hold it in lower tax countries and pay it there.


#220

Which is illegal?
