  1. Transfers & Rumors: Deadline Drama!

    Lol the potential merry-go round between Dortmund/Arsenal/United is making me dizzy. Starting to feel like one of those 4 team 20 player NBA deals. Dortmund gets: Giroud Arsenal gets: Mkhi, Auba United gets: Alexis, every Arsenal fan's tears We never see deals like this in soccer happen in part because the players actually have the power to say no... and I'm still skeptical that this one will go through. Mkhitaryan would be our highest earner if we take him on the wages he has at United, which I'd be surprised if we do. I wonder if part of the waving of a transfer fee would be towards giving him a sign-on bonus to make it more amenable to the regular wage structure. All of this activity is happening one transfer window too late IMO but if we're able to turn Alexis and Walcott into some combo of Auba, Mkhi, and/or Malcolm that's pretty decent business from a bad negotiating position. Seems like the new Barca Director of Football guy is making his presence felt.
  2. Transfers & Rumors: Deadline Drama!

    Silva is more of a central player in Pep's system... still, they've got 4 amazing players for their 3 forward spots but as Jesus' knock showed all it really takes is one injury for them to start to feel light there. They'll walk the league either way but Alexis would be massive for them in terms of solidifying their Champions League ambitions.

    Such a passive performance from Chelsea, even with 25 minutes against 10 men at home they created absolutely nothing. Baffling to me how Bakoyoko and Morata went the full 90 while Fabregas and Hazard got the early hook.
  4. Don 'Wink' Martindale promoted to DC

    So much misplaced arrogance in this organization. Incredible how unimaginative and complacent Harbaugh and Co. are after 1 playoff berth in 5 years. A lot of the league has already passed us by and we're not even trying to catch up.
  5. Arsenal, Pt. X: Boom-Xhaka-Laca!

    Oh absolutely, that's where a big need is. We basically have nothing there once Alexis leaves. Don't think Auba is the one to fill that void though. In terms of the guys we always get linked to it's Mahrez, Draxler, Lemar, and Fekir that at least feel like plausible targets.
  6. Arsenal, Pt. X: Boom-Xhaka-Laca!

    These Auba links sound like BS to me, he played on the wing a lot earlier in his career but he's an out and out striker at this point in his career and it's the wide forward areas we'll need to strengthen again with Alexis (and probably Walcott too) leaving and Iwobi not really looking up to standard. I guess if Arsene is either thinking about playing Lacazette out wide, which would be awful, or he's thinking about moving to a 2 striker system, it's possible but I can't see it.

    What a GAME. Morata was dreadful and really let us off the hook. But yet another soft penalty given against us, getting ridiculous now.

    Sounds like Pagano is the top choice. Given that it's not even a guarantee that he's coaching next year anywhere, I hope we have other external targets we're looking at before settling for Martindale. But good to hear that the outreach is happening - I think Pagano is a little overrated based on the easy schedule we played in 2011 but I would definitely take him over Martindale.
  9. Random Ravens Thoughts: New Forum Edition

    Especially after going to college in upstate NY I have a soft spot for the Bills and am happy for them and their fans for the playoff berth... but it sucks not really getting to enjoy that/having to avoid all of the celebration videos, etc. because it came at our expense. What a crappy way to end the season. Much worse than last season... only thing that tops it is the Lee Evans/Cundiff game.
  10. GDT 2017: Week 17 - Bengals @ Ravens

    Worst part about that play is that literally nobody was surprised. Congrats to Harbaugh's buddies or having the most loyal friend in the world. Too bad it screwed our team in the process. Pees is going to get to "retire" because there's no such thing as accountability when it comes to crappy coaches in Baltimore.

    Lol I forgot it's always someone else's fault not the dude getting paid $20 million to underthrow deep balls on every throw.
  13. GDT 2017: Week 17 - Bengals @ Ravens

    Defense is getting no rest whatsoever and is gonna get gassed pretty soon. Offense is just pathetic.
  14. GDT 2017: Week 17 - Bengals @ Ravens

    Lol Flacco's best play so far today was throwing behind a completely covered Woodhead on that 3rd down... would have been a pick if Flacco had actually thrown it where he meant to.
  15. GDT 2017: Week 17 - Bengals @ Ravens

    Flacco and his receivers are a match made in heaven, they all suck.
