    I was once on a train from Euston to Manchester on a Saturday morning and it was rammed with them

    i like the way you rely on something whose primary source is a 1981 book and which admits to at least a degree of error to address 2018 claims.

    I'd have thought every patch of Arsenal fans is pretty disappointed right now, and has been for some time!

    Only just seen the Mustafi 'defending' for the first goal. Fucking hell, it's every bit as bad as the press have reported it. It's as if the fucker's a Liberal Democrat. :(

    That was pitiful on Saturday. Every Arsenal fan knows this, and I can only hope that the Board are beginning to get this: Wenger is way past his sell-by date and needs to be replaced

    add in correct score and scorer of the first goal and the odds should get better.

    just watched the highlights...its a harsh result really, unflattering score line...Arsenal worked hard at the start, created lots of opportunities, were dominant even...but when City went forward they're so skillful - 3 really great goals which wouldve undone any defence. Unlucky.


    lol :D

    Not the most expensive team, just the best the PL has yet seen. (As if spending in itself is a guarantee of success anyway, as we see time and time again.)

    I was disappointed that City eased off in the second half. Goal difference could be crucial at the end of the season.

    It's all true, and we were in a similar situation before 2008, due to decades of mismanagement and incompetence at the highest level. But by that time it had already been established that without adequate funding, a club can only ever be an also-ran. The Premier League's history already spoke for itself. Never before had any club managed to win twice as many titles in as short a space of time as it had in its entire history. And it was designed to be a closed shop of clubs who were best placed to maintain the positions held when this bread-and-circuses set-up was conceived by those very same clubs and their friends and employees in the football authorities and media. As in other countries, it was always supposed to be a perpetual top four or six reaping the financial rewards, and nobody else ever getting a look-in. And all the projected also-rans voted for it like turkeys...

    The only way of destroying this closed shop was always going to be through inward investment. And when it began to happen, the closed shop tried to curtail it with the aid of the UEFA cabal they are in cahoots with, through the corrupt, anti-competitive, laughably-named Financial Fair Play rules. And again, the 'lesser clubs' cheered them on. Maybe because the extent of the ambitions of the boards of the also-rans is to maintain their limited prestige as owners of historically significant (to one extent or another) clubs, and reap the rewards of merely staying in the PL.

    Having said all that, the PL and (always mis-named) Champions' League are more competitive than they have been for some time-thanks to the clubs that have received the only means of competing: inward investment. In City's case at least, this was proved a springboard to ongoing success and the self-sufficiency which follows.

    Talking to another Arsenal fan this morning in the office. Neither of us went last night, nor watched on telly. The gulf in class on Sunday meant there was just no point.

    Brighton on Sunday might actually be a match
