    I still think Michael Owen was ruined by Houllier for exactly the reasons you describe Rob. Whenever a less than sophisticated manager sees a fast player he often sees long balls in the net quicker, and that's all.

    I can think of some people disagreeing with me on that, but I have been watching him since he was 14. He was *******ised by a brutal route one system which looked at his pace alone and ignored the quite precocious aggression he had to begin with.

    Had he been at United when he was 18 we'd be looking at a healthy, very different player today imo.

    Long nights spent alone with books instead of playing with girls, leading ineffably to a choice between either excessive bouts of masturbation, eloquence, or in my case, both. :facepalm2:

    Girls may be overrated, but my wrist needs reconstructive surgery and my heart, alas, is very much alone. :embarrassed:

    I like that V. There is a certain homo-erotic thread to this, erm, thread. I blame the WUMS tbh.

    Is Alan Green commentating?

    If so it wouldn't surprise me. He is the anti-WUM. Queen of GEL anal. DVDA-GEL.

    Aye, Waddle, who's 'been watching his wingplay' - all 5 starts Chris? - clearly ain't a fan.

    I believe he's got the potential to become a great player.
    LOL! That cheered me up.

    I wouldn't mind seeing one of these Egyptians in the Arsenal squad, someone fearless, driven and technical.

    Waddle was one heck of a player though. Then again, so was Alan Hansen, so I concede the point. :teehee:

    Paul Parker was fairly handy too, and he wrote an article the other day which I dare not post in case I get warned for starting a riot.

    Yeah, silly ******, it's all 'Walcott can't do anything, can't run, can't walk, can't change his own nappie, can't breath without a ventilator' :rolleyes:. Silly ******.

    The really funny thing is that's a startlingly accurate description of Green.

    His face is the kind of thing you show young kids to stop them ******** on the furniture. "See this, son, NOW USE THE ******* TOILET YE WEE ****!"

    A world class goal... :indiff:

    It bounced up into Crouch and as he spent 82 years shaping to shoot, the incidental collision with his shin sent the ball floundering into the bottom corner, without intent.

    Townsend is a WUM.

    Glad I could help

    If there's something we lack at Arsenal it's not technique..

    It was the non-Townsend guy that made the world class comment, thus making me spit out the coke I was trying to drink.

    I can't think of many ex-players who offer good insight. Martin Keown doesn't embarass himself on MotD2 the few times I've seen him - the look on his face when he was handed the V. Nistlerooy shirt was great.

    The reason why he's been so effective this season is because he has strictly been the centre-forward and not been the playmaker. Berbatov has been a playmaker when he's played in the hole (as a sort of trequartista). Carrick has done his usual playmaking from a deep-lying role as always.

    I'd agree with that.

    I'm a big fan of Dion Dublin actually. :yes: I'd love to say David Platt too but for some reason he seems like the most boring man alive.

    Lee Dixon is normally quite reasonable and insightful. But he has his moments of madness though this may to offset suggestions that he's bias.
