He got even better after I made that post. Looks very, very good. Hopefully he doesn't go out on loan and gets some action in the Capital One Cup.

Wenger on Reine-Adelaide: "He will stay at @Arsenal this season. He looks very promising but he needs to work with the first team now."

Excellent pre-season with 1 goal conceded. Ramsey and Ozil look set for top seasons. First Arsenal pre-season for the latter.

As a neutral, would you say that Liverpool's season is pretty much over now?

intelligent and high quality question friend. as a neutral i feel i am best placed to answer these types of questions without bias. i wouldnt say liverpools season is over now friend no. when you look at the players rodgers has brought in and the tactics he plays as well as the state of the squad as a whole i think liverpool fc can reach a respectable mid table position absolutely no doubt about that one.

Astute thoughts there and we should all listen to someone who doesn't know how to phrase sentences or know what capital letters are.

Seems Neil used this game to have a look at what the players that barely feature for us can do. Ruddy/Tettey aside, the starting XI was made up of fringe players and Howson/Redmond aside, the subs were made up of youth players.

Thought they competed well up until West Ham brought on nine fresh pairs of legs then they gave us the run-around. A late Toffolo own goal saw them edge it 1-0. Good work out but not sure any of them have given Alex Neil anything to think about regarding his first choice XI.

3-0 win away at Yeovil. Hard to learn much given the mish-mash sides that played although very one sided. Distin does look a cut above everyone though. Josh King caused chaos. Not sure where several of our usual big guns are though. Hopefully just being wrapped in cotton wool.

Diego Costa has pulled his hamstring again. Chelsea should be in the market for a top class striker who isn't so injury prone.

Our medical team really could learn a thing or two from you guys.
They certainly could. With only Welbeck currently out for a week or so, they're working wonders.

We should praise Shad Forsythe for his miracle work.

Wow Van Gaal is really try to out do Moyes in incompetence.
Dropping Smalling and playing Blind at centre back, dropping Herrera, playing Depay as a number 10 and thinking a Carrick/Schweinsteiger combo in midfield would work.

LVG is beginning to get on my nerves abit. Blind cannot play at CB, his positioning was dog shit. Why not pair up Jones and Smalling from the beginning? We desperately need an experienced class CB or we'll be leaking dumb goals. Shaw and Darmian were the only real positives, defend well then always look to get forward and overlap.

That midfield was crying out for Herrera, someone who actually wants to carry the ball and drive forward. Without him it's all backwards and sidewards with a long ball forward every now and then. Our buildup is too slow and predictable, achieves fuckal when the opposition have all the the time to reposition then we're back to square one.

Mata, though one of the better performers on the night, more often than not kills our counter attacks cos his lack of pace and always drift inside looking for a pass. Yeah Depay can play the #10 as he has all the flicks and neat touches to work tight spaces but right now we need that trickery to beat men to get our team futher up the pitch, there's fuckal penetration and creativity atm.

I know it's a meaningless friendly and hardly their strongest line up, but we don't have too much to celebrate at the moment so I just came here to say:

York City 2 - 1 Newcastle United

Haha

Manchester United was outclassed and outplayed by PSG yesterday. Game ended 2-0. De Gea was horrendous (maybe he is looking to force his way out?). As I said numerous times United will be fighting for 4th place next season. #FreeDeGea #FreeDiMaria

Durham, it's 2015. Most people have experienced the internet and trolling died out about 5 years ago. It's seriously not worth your own time, mate, especially if you stayed up from 2-4am to watch our game and post that.

I'm just looking out for you, mate.
