Thought we were good value for that win today - Arsenal looked fairly insipid in the first half but did come back stronger in the second half of the second half.

So pleased for Declan Rice - he had another fine game today. Always looks so composed on the ball and that goal meant a lot to him I think.

Arnie - hmmmmm. He’s getting a hard time over on Knees Up but I thought he did a fair bit of pressing high up, on his own today. He does look like he is sulking sometimes if it doesn’t go his way but I think that’s just the way he is. If he goes, so be it - he’s a good player but he’s not a great player (IYKWIM). We’d bounce back, just like we always do whenever this happens to us.

Glad I chose the game over the Bicknacre meet - even though it looks like there were some nice cars there smile

I thought Carroll did ok when he came on this time. How was he received by the crowd?

Fine - thought he played well & as a collector's piece was awarded a free-kick.

Boom, great result and performance.

Arnie? At the end looking at him you`d have thought we'd lost.

Face like a slapped arse and instead of celebrating with his team mates skulks off down the tunnel. Not much badge kissing going on.

Flog him to the highest bidder from outside the PL.

COYI.

Have to agree here , that clip really is what every fan wants their players that put the shirt on to be like .

Because we'd be exactly the same.

Next England captain, if he goes that route. Should certainly make sure the owners don't see a quick financial win and take £50m from City. But yes, what a day for him, very grounded and becoming such a complete player well before his peak years.

In an interview Antonio all but confirmed Arnie is going in January, still cannot get my head around why Arnie feels that winning a trophy in China is a must do for him. Hardly the pinnacle of football the level of the game over there. Not much around in January that would be a decent buy, if we let Arnie go then we should be looking £50m+ anything less and we would look like mugs as teams like Bournemouth quote £75m for Wilson etc.

Funny I was thinking that but with Anderson and Nasri in the midfield it would leave us a bit light I think and without replacing a proven goal scorer with another. Also his salary would be £150k+ which is not the right message to send to the rest of the squad.

I think we need to dip into Ligue or Serie again and pull another great product out, anything in the Prem in January is going to be grossly overpriced.

Can't see us letting him go unless we've someone lined up to come straight in... and the Arnie situation's been resolved.

Nasri will potentially work really well w/ Hernan as well (nicked that one from MOTD) so be a shame to not see that as well.

If personal terms are agreed it could well hinge on how the Arnie merrygoround progresses in the next week.

Have to say there is a dearth of strikers out there at the moment that look available...
