    Yep you can tell those boys still want to play for Ole. The Negative is obviously coming from outside dressing room.

    Arsenal have released their financial results for the last financial year ending May 31st 2019.

    They show that the club has gone from making a pre-tax profit of £97.4 million the year before to making a pre-tax loss of £23.5 million during 2018/19.


    Just wow. Hopefully this makes Kroenke lose interest in the club and sell it off.

    Weekend podcast roundup below :thumb

    BBC Football Daily, December 7, 2019: Manchester is red & ‘Big’ Duncan’s Everton delight

    "Mark Chapman reflects on a huge day of Premier League football as Manchester United played their part in the title race, beating Manchester City 2-1 at the Etihad. Our football correspondent John Murray and former Manchester City midfielder Michael Brown analyse the game and debate whether Manchester City can overturn a 14-point deficit to league leaders Liverpool – who beat Bournemouth 3-0. Former Everton defender Martin Keown and commentator Vicki Sparks reflect on an emotional first win in charge for Everton’s caretaker manager Duncan Ferguson – who saw his side beat Chelsea 3-1 at Goodison Park. Mark talks to Everton defender Mason Holgate about how he feels the transition has been from playing under Marco Silva to Duncan Ferguson. You’ll hear from some of the biggest names in football on the pod – including Pep Guardiola, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Jose Mourinho and Jurgen Klopp."

    BBC Football Daily, December 8, 2019: Vardy vanquishes Villa and Pep's problems with adversity

    "Former Republic of Ireland international Steven Kelly, ex-Millwall striker Steve Morison and The Independent's Melissa Reddy join Emma Saunders to look back on the weekend's action. With Leicester now leading the chasing pack to Liverpool, the team assess whether Brendan Rodgers' side are now genuine title contenders. Duncan Ferguson impressed in his first game as Everton's caretaker boss - but is he realistically a contender for the permanent position? And the team look at whether Manchester City should now prioritise the Champions League over the Premier League."

    BBC 606 Phone-in, December 7, 2019: Madness in Manchester, Big Dunc’s big day at Goodison Park, and it’s quite the quintet for Mourinho

    "Alistair Bruce-Ball and Chris Sutton took your calls on all of Saturday’s football action. Everton fans were incredibly impressed with their caretaker manager after a big win at home to Chelsea, Tottenham put five past Burnley whilst Palace and Watford fans had it out over a scrappy 0-0. We also discuss what’s going on at Arsenal, and there’s a heated round of Sutton Death."

    BBC 606 Phone-in, December 8, 2019: Leicester close the gap again, praise for Steve Bruce, and only ONE call on VAR!

    "Your football calls and reaction with Robbie Savage and Sam Quek."

    Yeah I was following text commentary on BBC. Wow, they must've played horribly in the first 55 mins or so! Just saw the goals though - great stuff! Pepe - would love to see him settle in in this league.

    Ancelloti's out. Arsenal? :)

    Salahs goal...all nonchalant. I would have fell over in disbelief if I scored that.

    Also, then again... Im still tired from just watching Son's goal over the weekend..... :photog

    btw, i tried something yesterday... Europa never televised... got an ad for bleacher report streaming matches.... I decided to try it, and Downloaded the app. Watched that match Pay per view for 3 bucks. worked fine.

    Doubt its worth the full subscription but that's a cool option.

    Part of the driver for that was i noticed next weeks Everton vs United match is on NBC gold :baldy

    In other manager news, I think that Frank Lampard may have some work ahead of him.
