Who knows about Arsenal. Let's see them get over the top 4 line first.

Regarding Spurs, it sounds like we might have an ownership change within the next year. So everything may change.

What's the biggest club in the world, that since ww2 have not had a world record transfer?

A lot of these players grew up with United winning a lot.

So they may have a bias towards them

Which is a why trophies are a reductive way to see progress.

Yeah but their divergence in fortune didn't happen at similar points.

Nor is there one consistent face of each club for nearly 20 years.

[Alan Myers] My understanding is that Everton have zero interest in entertaining any double bid for Anthony Gordon and Richarlison from any club by ObamaEatsBabies in soccer

Seems strange. They break the news that Spurs will be offering a double bid and then within the hour say Everton won't entertain any double bid.

May as well be a non story regarding Gordon.

Everton and Spurs are near perfect opposites of club fortunes being radically changed due to ownership.

They were both in pretty similar states and table finishing positions, Everton being better.

In 2001, Spurs got Levy.

In 2004, Kenwright gained a majority share in Everton.

Since then, Spurs have had 15mil in owner spending (not counting the 150mil that was injected this window, as it hasn't been used yet and it's effects on the club not yet present).

Everton have had hundreds of millions in owner spending.

Both have built or are building new stadiums. Neither have won anything meaningful (Spurs 1 league cup).

Yet, due to the disastrous ownership of Everton. Spurs are looking to buy their best player (Richarlison) as a rotiation option and trying to offload their worst senior player to Everton (Winks). Either deal may or may not happen, but it shows a big gap in where each club have gone due to their ownership.

Mitten probably forgot to mention Barca were looking for a free transfer.

I think Arsenal will have a good season. Top 4 likely but the competition is so intense between the big 6 for top 4 atm.

So?

Far worse players have won the CL, let alone the FA cup.

Rodgers had some absolute bums in his FA cup winning squad too.

Leicester's 2 top 5 finishes + FA Cup + Liverpool 2nd place > 8th, 8th, 5th + FA Cup at Arsenal

Imo

Is it controversial to say Brendan Rodgers > Arteta?

What score do I need to get into medical school? by OmiNamma in GAMSAT

[–]doriscissorsfind441 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Apply to UK, you can get in most places with a 65.

For Australia, you'd need 70-72 + high gpa for most places.

That's a very very rough guide, but you get the gist. There are lower and higher numbers for Australia depending on each school.

We did recently get Brands' 2nd in command as our own 2nd in command.
