re: Best Performers Statistically in the EPL - tigerfan88
Well since Coquelin has anchored Arsenal's midfield, almost half a season now, Arsenal have been better than Chelsea. That, combined with said statistics...well I'm not really sure why you're laughing. Even though that wasn't the point of the statistics post at all...

Yeah there's a really good section on this in soccernomics where it explains that the reason England fell behind the rest of Europe was bc they were too isolated and myopic. This will only make that worse ...

Yeah he's still a defensive monster, but his dalliances on the ball and lack of first touch passing really showed against Monaco and today. Of course he's like Pirlo in his prime on the ball compared to Flamini so...

re: Arsenal 2014/15 Season Long Thread - tigerfan88
I don't know if one athlete has ever made so many mistakes in the closing moments of a game. Mickeys performance would be like missing a wide open goal, scoring an own goal, and conceding a penalty in the last ten minutes of a game...

re: Arsenal 2014/15 Season Long Thread - tigerfan88
He grew up a pool fan, and I think Wenger sees selling to pool and Walcott sees going to pool as less of a betrayal and less of a "selling to a rival" as selling to City, United, or Chelsea. That being said, most of the rumors link Walcott going to pool with Sterling being sold which I don't see...

re: Arsenal 2014/15 Season Long Thread - tigerfan88
That's true as well. When he gets the ball 30+ yards away from goal if there isn't another player immediately nearby for him to pass to you know nothing is coming from the move. Giroud is far from perfect, and I would absolutely take a Lewandowski, Ibra, or Benzema over him. All 3 guys offer his siz...

re: Patrick Peterson's tourney bracket - tigerfan88
The point is he said Viginia would "dismantle us." We've been blown out of exactly one game all year, against Tennessee. We've come played several pretty good teams, and one elite team, all who play very different styles. We've yet to be even close to dismantled by any of them. If we played UVA we v...

Sergio Aguero missed three decent chances against Burnley and missed a fricking penalty against Barca. Sturridge has a been wasteful as frick since coming back from injury. RVP and Falcao can't hit the broadside of a barn for Man U. Costa and Giroud average the exact same goals per 90, Costa does it i...

Whoevers man set the screen should've switched onto Ilyasova. It wasn't Tyreke bc his guy cut towards the basket earlier. Davis maybe should've done better in getting through the screen but you don't bank on that to contest a last second shot. Someone should've switched...

re: Arsenal 2014/15 Season Long Thread - tigerfan88
In hindsight we should've started Walcott over him from the beginning. Monaco wasn't even pretending to try offensively so walcotts lack of tracking back wouldn't have been an issue. But early on when there was at least some room having someone just make runs off the back shoulder could have been us...

re: Arsenal 2014/15 Season Long Thread - tigerfan88
We put way too much emphasis on the first leg. We think we have to win it every year and so as soon as we give up a goal we panic and inevitably crumble. Wenger needs to beat into the team that a tie or one goal defeat in the first leg isn't the end of the world. That being said soccer is a game...

re: LSU in NCAA Tourney Usually Feast or Famine - tigerfan88
To be fair 2009 was a really successful tourney run when taken in context. Played probably 2 of the best 4 teams in the tourney and went 1-1. Beat a butler team that made the finals the next two years with pretty much the same players, and was the only team to play with UNC for a full 40 minutes...

He has no idea how to logistically bring everyone back together, at least not any quicker than he broke them apart. He's spent 5 books expanding the plot, sending the characters all over the world, introducing new characters, but he knows he doesn't have time for 5 books of the same quality to wrap ...
