Wow. Just wow. Leicester I salute you, what a brilliant result. Quarter finals of the biggest competition in Europe and near the bottom of the league - has there ever been anything like it before (or will be again). Sadly with Man City, Bayern, the Madrid clubs, Juve and Barca in the quarters it's unlikely to continue, but full credit to the Foxes.

Some very impressive cheating from Vardy though. But because he's English the media don't dwell on it.

Aitor Karanka sacked as Middlesbrough manager.
Mark Warburton is the new Nottingham Forest manager whilst Gary Rowett is the new Derby manager.

If you want to sum up hiring and firing in football then this picture would be a good start.

Wenger is looking more and more like Jeremy Corbyn every day - no hope of winning anything, small group of vocal hardcore supporters, refusing to accept there is a problem, staff in almost open rebellion. And he wants to extend his contract.

It's a real shame as he's a true legend, and he could end up tarnishing his standing with the fans. If he was a star player past his prime, the manage would gave pulled him by now; which is exactly what the chairman should do. But that will only happen if a place in the top 4 isn't achieved.

It's a shame, they're in total disarray over it all. Much as it makes me smile to see it, he's the best thing that's happened to Arsenal, and half of the supporters who now want him out, are only supporting the club because of him. They should be careful what they wish for, because it's not always easy to find a "better" replacement, even if it looks it from the outside.

Not that I'm a spurs fan but I remember the trolling from some members towards spurs fans. Amazing how quiet they are now ! Usual story. Quiet as a mouse when it's the other way round

Hopefully we'll get an exciting end to the season and hopefully Man Utd will miss the champions league !

Don't really understand your point. Isn't part of the fun of football taking the p*ss out of your rivals? Surely it's ok to laugh at your rivals when they haven't finished above you you since 1995 and haven't won the league in colour?

But as they are clearly going to finish above Arsenal this season, along with the fact that the season has been pretty poor what would you expect the fans to say?

Anyway, I am thinking about supporting Norwich, I can think of 7 good reasons why I might.... :lol:

Disappointed with the Leicester result, but it wasn't the normal first team due to CL coming up, and Everton have been on fire at home this season. Still made quite a few chances at least.
