    Rooney, Smalling and Shaw all confirmed to be fine for next week (unless they get injured in training before then which lets be fair can never be ruled out with us).

    Should be a good game. Looking forward to it.

    I think it was only last week he was confirmed fit by Barca. He had to see a sports psychologist and everything because he was so torn up about not playing. I feel for him, but what a piece of business from Arsene.

    Stop derailing this thread. Seriously.

    Nothing wrong with going off topic but some of the ****e that's been posted in here lately has got to stop. As for all the people posting on dupes I know exactly who you are so don't think you're fooling anyone.

    I'm mainly a fan of football, and associate with Leeds a lot so I get that struggle of dropping down, we've been **** for years and things can be taken for granted. Sad to think because we were probably 10 years early, with all the money in sponsorship and FFP etc. we'd still be a top 4 side tbh.

    Ignore the haters though bro. All about blowing off that steam for exams tbh, and yeah ignore the BTEC haters, they're actually a good route into a lot of degrees (and not just **** ones), just got a bad reputation because of BTEC beauty and Homosexual studies. Just do your thing man.
    Yep, it's just a case of being in the right place at the wrong time for Leeds. It's unfortunate that Newcastle are going down now, good city, big club with a huge base of support behind them but hopefully they return soon. I guess they do need a kick up their ass after what happened with Pardrew however

    This is a student forum and you've got certain posters discriminating others because of their academic ability. I don't understand how that's not being punished regardless of the amounts of confrontations I've had with other members of this website. The sooner the weeds are cut out, the better.

    That's why you were crying out for the mods to ban me, because you couldn't suffice my presence, or a proper response that wouldn't make you look like an idiot. The funniest thing out of this is how seriously you've taken me over this period (including the brother part, bet you were well shook :rofl: )

    The Bell End just has a lovely ring to it don't you think, I suggest you ask the mods to fix the typo in your name asap.

    Oh yeah, think I found you on the right here.

    Coq is such a likeable player, especially since he gives importance to his role and doesn't worry too much about going forward.

    In an article with Amy Lawrence, he says "If I can take away 10% of their [Ozil, Cazorla and Sanchez] defensive duties then they can have 10% more to attack and score goals and win us games". It's no surprise that we've become better as a team with Coq in it. Wenger asks him for simplicity, that is literally breaking attacks up - and that's probably why he's doing so well. I remember when Ramsey had his rough patch (prior to last season), Wenger said a similar thing to him - to concentrate on the basics.

    I remember back in the day, most of the times our attacking players didn't need to defend, and that's why we were so much more efficient going forward. We had a competent enough defence and a more reliable keeper between the sticks, so the likes of Bergkamp could simply just attack, without the need to track back. Obviously the PL has since changed and everyone is required to have a defensive side to their game, but if we can just add to our defence, or if Gabriel turns in to the ferocious ******* that he looks like then defensively we'll look a lot better.

    Still hoping for Schniederlin though, he's a completely different type of CDM to Coq. He'll add something different to our squad (essentially be an Arteta replacement) and he should be wanting CL football. We can get him, so we should. He'll add a bit more to our attack if we need it, while still keeping a relatively good defensive structure. It won't make our hearts jump when Coq is substituted for a more attacking player. Swear at one point during the semi final, I thought the withdrawal of Coq would make us bottle it.

    I've completely bought this Coq hype now, his consistency is making him a favourite to be in our starting line up next season. I wouldn't even mind it too much if we don't get Schniederlin, or someone like him. (Wouldn't be as painful as not getting a CDM while we only had Flamini and Arteta)

    Coq only started playing footy at 10, before then he used do Judo :lol:. It explains the whole:-



    Really though, he's become an absolute beast - and a really consistent beast at that.

    Yeah tbf even as a United fan I really rate him. Yeah the Judo pretty much explains his tackles. He's got a bright future ahead of him.

    France are going to have a beast of a team in the future (next 5 years +):

    Griezmann Fekir Lacazette
    Pogba
    Coquelin Rabiot
    Kurzawa Varane Zouma/Laporte RB
    Lloris

    Not to mention the likes of Mangala, Sakho e.t.c.

    Coquelin in all honesty should model his game from Makalele or the likes of Matic and Javi Martinez, don't think he has the ball playing ability to be a deep lying playmaker like your previous DMs like Arteta etc, but he can get across the pitch well and doesn't lose the ball too often, although 84% passing accuracy from a DM is a little worrying especially when you consider that Coquelin isn't a direct deep lying playmaker neither does he like to push forward on bursting runs like other DMs do. Arteta has 93% in the premier league, while Matic has 86% passing accuracy.

    But at 23 years old he's got time. Nemanja Matic e.g. was nowhere near this level in 2012 for Benfica, but when he got a good run of games he did very well.

    You'll still need a DM as it's going to be worrying using Flamini and Arteta(similar to Chelsea's problem with Mikel and Ramires who are decent but just not good enough to play extended runs of games), but I'm warming to coquelin too.

    Coquelin needs another season before we can really tell if he is good enough. But he has had a good season.

    The only thing is that our expectations for a player in that position may be artificially low because Flamini was so poor.

    Next season i'd quite like to see the guy pick the ball up from the defence and distribute the ball a bit better. It would really speed up our play.

    Kondogbia just played Coq and Arsenal out of the CL, don't be so quick to forget pls.

    Also Sakho is their golden boy, not a chance Zouma/Laporte are getting in any time soon.
