Arsenal have got the easiest run home, but your away form hasn’t been good and you’ve still got to go to the likes of Wolves, Watford and Leicester. You are going to have to sort that out to have a shot at finishing top four. Should pick up lots of points at home though
Compared to last season our away form is better, but yeah still not up to standard. Unai does love his real defensive formations away to anyone for some reason, that don't seem to stop the goals he is setting up to protect, needs to stick with a back 4. Wolves, Watford and Leicester will be big games, probably not for the neutral, but massive for the club.

Still, it is United's spot to lose IMO.

There’s some good teams left - Arsenal, Chelsea, Sevilla, Valencia, Inter, Napoli, Benfica. You’ll have to get through at least a couple of tough ties to win it this year I’d imagine

If the quarter finals end up consisting of Chelsea, Inter, Napoli, Benfica, Valencia, Sevilla, Arsenal and Zenit that would be pretty stacked.

LOL I don't think you know what salty means.

It's very defensive from you, and glen, and those Arse fans rushing (almost like sheep themselves) to throw the likes. It's almost like you lot can't handle some gentle ribbing about being a clearly inferior team after giving it out for so many years when we were the ones traveling to Qarabag.

Very defensive indeed. Almost like it truly hurts.

That’s very cute of you buddy. It’s enjoyable seeing your little sheep pack dish it out but struggle to take it :D

So going off your own rules you’ve instilled, the question can be asked, what are you doing here? ;)







Baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

Haha apart from MD36, or whatever it was, I've always been able to take the good with the bad in a very Zen-like fashion. I must say that I accept the no trophies jibes with far more grace than you accept the jibes about losing to a Belarussian tractor company with passive-aggressive Simpsons memes, but then again, I very much enjoy your Simpsons-based posting, so I'm not complaining.

As for me being here, part of being superior is always checking in on those who are inferior, giving them gentle encouragement when needed and occasionally poking fun.

Also, visiting this thread evokes a strange kind of self-deprecating nostalgia. Not in a "damn, I miss those days way," but a "wow, look how far we've come." It helps you appreciate where we are now, and there's no small enjoyment taken from reveling in how far others have fallen after years of having no choice but to cop the mockery. Feels good, you know.

Haha I also have no doubt that after we lose 4-0 in Dortmund in a few weeks time, it will be the Arsenal fans who will be the first to beginthe pile on.

I certainly hear you. All makes sense, and it’s all in good fun. I’d say the vast majority (aside from Doctor Sheepo) take this stuff in their stride and enjoys the banter each way.

It’s a tad amusing though how seriously some take it, like it genuinely matters. It’s an internet forum, for a bit of discussion and enjoyment here and there.

And yep, there he is. Right on cue. Sheepism 101, Exhibit A.

The bloke so obsessed with what occurs in north London despite living approx 17,000kms away. Obsessed with props Arsenal use in training, what the fans say on Twitter, the official attendance Arsenal announces despite the empty seats at the Emirates.

And that’s just off the top of my head, I’m sure there’s numerous more examples. Amazed how seriously you seem to take this shit.

Nice little ninja edit by the way, too late however. I read it in its entirety, nice try ;)

Oh glen, a name change, you flatter me. :D

Just returning them favours is all. Plenty piled on after Gent. It’s just laughing at a rival, just some fun really.

It does amuse me how upset a ribbing makes you btw. I do recall a few cracking it for giving stuck into Hawforn btw...

Upset? Classic :D

Shouldn’t mistake being upset with having a chortle. Genuinely do find it amusing how head****ed you seem to be at times, there’s something unique about the Hawthorn/Arsenal combination that makes you compelling viewing.

A treasure to this board ;)

That you’re both irrelevant and rubbish now is somewhat satisfying.

Similarly shouldn’t mistake obsessed with just having a good laugh. All it took was one Belorussian farmers remark this time lol.

Irrelevant and rubbish? :D

To an obsessed mind thats seeks fulfilment from the failure of others, yes can completely understand why you’d seek such satisfaction from an otherwise empty existence.

This gets better and better. You’re like the gift that keeps giving.
