    Suttons reserve GK has better mobility than City's CBs

    4-0 in Europe always mark an end of an era for Barça. Athens 94, Munchen 2012 and Paris 2017.

    I will actually summarise the story for you as you won't believe me and will look it up and find that it's true. sun bet offered odds of 8-1 that he would be seen on camera eating a pie during the game. he ate a pie on the sidelines and it emerged after that he was aware the bet was being offered. he had no money on it but some sutton fans did. anyway,the gambling commission and FA both decided to investigate him for illegal betting activities for 'match fixing' the pie eating and Sutton have forced him to resign. it ended with him in tears. this is why it is impossible for there to ever be a positive story when arsenal are involved

    He should have just lied. If his intention was to game the system then he went about it wrong.

    he wasn't trying to game the system, he didn't make any money off it, he just did it as a joke and thought it would earn a few sutton fans their ticket money back. it's pretty unfair to put a betting market on something which is a direction decision of one person - as soon as he knew about the bet he was doomed to rig it one way or another , if he had deliberately not eaten a pie to avoid trouble then he would have rigged it for the bookies (and then I suppose no one would have cared). really this kind of novelty bet should be excluded from the rules surrounding betting and bookies should offer them at their own risk.

    I am sure he will be cleared in the investigation but he has still lost his role at the club and it's all rather sad

    Wouldn't call Enrique's reign an "era". He had 1 good year, and it came when he added Suarez to what was still very much Pep's team.

    Enrique is a much better manager than Guardiola

    up to recently I always supported other British teams in Europe, but this year for some reason I am genuinely delighted for the exits of arsenal and man city

    He complained about a lack of decent wingback options, then clears out a bunch of old players including Clichy, Sagna, and Zabaleta, but prioritizes Bernardo Silva as a 40 million signing? Good player, probably fits the system, but they're not short on attacking options behind and around the striker. Now they'll get charged the same price if not more for Benjamin Mendy, and maybe even Fabinho. That's some crazy spending.

    Yeah, this is pretty much what I think too.

    We'll see. Or else he'll play Iheanacho as a left back and say he's the smartest player he's ever worked with.
