"Sensitive" has two potential meanings in that first tweet - 1) being aware (which is a good thing) or 2) being overly delicate (which is how the outrage machine would have read it)

And that's before you get to the issue of potentially losing meaning in translation

For what it’s worth £250k a week is what Willian’s wage was reported at. However the point still stands. I struggle to think of a worse signing Arsenal has made in my time following the club.

Too much weight for the lesser competitions.

If we make everything equal. City, West Ham, Tottenham as examples.
All end group 4-1-1: 13pts and top group. All make the final. Knockouts are 1W and 1D.

City: 4 (GS) + 9 (GS matches) + 9 (KO points) + 5 (R16) + 1 (QF) + 1 (SF) = 29 to make final.
WHU: 3 (GS) + 9 (GS matches) + 9 (KO points) + 4 (GS Win) + 1 (R16) + 1 (QF) + 1 (SF) = 28 to make final
TOT: 2.5 (GS) + 9 (GS matches) + 9 (KO points) + 2 (GS Win) + 1 (SF) = 23.5 to make final.

Not enough gap between the strength of the competitions.
