    Quite clearly the context is Wenger openly saying in the media reasons why Cesc shouldn't go to Barcelona for one, which then creates a public image of the type of players who go to Barcelona from PL and create some doubt in Cescs mind. He doesn't want to lose his best player so he's going to say something like that so he can get pressure from the English media to convince Cesc to stay. Wenger clearly had an agenda in that comment.

    Furthermore, Wenger said that because it was clearly true that most matches in La Liga are not competitive between Real/Barcelona and every other team in the league at the time(2010-13 anyway), however they are competitive in a different manner. Real and Barcelona knew realistically that the only way to confirm a league title win is to get close to 100 points. So every match counted. It's clearly competitive in that sense, because 3 games without a win could realistically end Real or Barcelona's title chances(e.g. Real in 2012-13) where in PL you are still with a chance to win the title as long as you hit 80+ and confirmed to win the title if you get 90 points(2009 was last title winning team to get 90 points).

    Speaking of presence, when I play 5 a side in goal I'm probably the biggest definition of a presence keeper. Mid game you have the opposition saying I'm unbeatable, or get called a cat when all I do is literally position myself. :rofl:
    Yeah you're the fat guy that gets put in goal and takes up 80% of it so seems good

    He's the guy who's called up when Bob, his mate and his 86 year old grandad are unavailable.

    Bit harsh. Its not like he gave away a decisive pen or got sent off.

    Has been mighty for them anyway.

    Yeah I've watched some of the Portugal games to see Ilori, Carvalho is a real standout. Head and shoulders above everyone else on the pitch at times.

    True he's been fantastic, but that doesn't change the fact he missed a crucial penalty. I expect to see more from him in the future though, he's very rough around the edges but has all the attributes necessary to thrive.

    Portuguese tactics didn't really help. Has it been confirmed whether Olivera was injured or just a tactical sub, Portuguese were in the ascendency at the time and was a weird change, Sweden were better from about 75 minutes on though.

    I do, hence why my responses haven't invoked anger, as that would be illogical. Why pretend otherwise?

    Seen more Arsenal fans thanking him for kicking John Terry in the head than what he did for them when he was fit. Classy fanbase.
