Ronaldo isn't as bad as people and himself make out, much of it is for show. Apparently he's a really nice guy outside football and does a lot for his extended family and charities too, without looking for any publicity.

In his prime I'd say he was as good if not better than Messi, he has played outside La Liga whereas Messi never has.

If I say black, you would say white.

Seriously!!

If I rated Cristiano Ronaldo more than Lionel Messi, you would be praising Lionel Messi all the time.

A lot of Arsenal fans are slagging off Mikel Arteta.

Some folk are saying he's the cheap option and the only experience Mikel has is putting the cones out in training.

Clearly a lot of Arsenal fans aren't going to be happy if Mikel Arteta is appointed manager.

If Mik reads some of the things that are being said about him, he might say 'Stuff that' and stay at Man City.

Yep, he's certainly gonna divide opinion. I said he'd be the cheap option that the money men would want and I reckon he'll be the one.

Personally, if we were going to have an ex player i'd have preferred Patrick Viera. What I don't want is another fracas like the Wenger Out situation. Why it should affect players I don't know but it did and thats why we've ended up 6th with nothing to show.

Solidarity and support from the terraces is what we need, in my view Mikel Arteta isn't going to give us that.

Didn't even realise it was the Europa league final last night, it went straight out of my head the moment we went out.

Anyway, Madrid beat Marseille 3-0 and thats that.

One time England keeper and dandruff expert Joe Hart is struggling to attract offers for his services. Almost frozen out at West Ham by David Moyes the keeper wasn't even considered as a show for the world cup.

Hart's career took a nose dive when Pep Guardiola turned up at Man City and decided his services were no longer required. He's still on City's books but went out on loan to Italians Torino and then to West Ham.

His stock has fallen to new lows as no Premier league club has even inquired about his availabilty for next season.

I have a plan though which could salvage his career, at least on paper. Arsenal are looking to replace everything Arsene Wenger built on the cheap, the new manager for starters. Well we need a keeper and Hart is going to come cheap - a marriage made in heaven. :again?:

Why can't this Ivan dude put his hands in his pockets and bring in Luis Enrique.

From what I was reading elsewhere, he has more money than sense.

Bringing in Mikel Arteta isn't going to end well.

Ivan Gazidis is the CEO, Stan Kroenke is the man with all the money. Enrique was never a realistic option he wants £15million a year tax free and a backroom staff on almost the same money combined, even money bags Chelsea won't have that.

I don't get any enjoyment in saying the Wenger Out brigade are going to find out in shocking manner just what Wenger did for Arsenal, the board are going to do everything on the cheap, just like the WO brigade thought Wenger was doing - they ain't seen nothing yet where 'cheap' is concerned.

Wenger was thrown to the wolves consistently by the board but he loved Arsenal so much and was too much of a gentleman to say that, now they have no-one to hide behind, the true nature of the board will out.

They should merge the Europa League and the Champions League.

Rangers were the first British team to play in the Champions League back in the day when it was champions only.

Now it's just a cup competition.

Liverpool could win it, even though they haven't been the champions of England for years.

It's a farce.

Stan Kroenke should stop shooting endangered animals and concentrate on Arsenal or sell the club to someone who won't treat it as a part time hobby.

I'm starting to feel sorry for Arsene Wenger, it seems he had a lot to put up with behind the scenes.

He should write a tell all book but he's too much of a gentleman
