Don't know imagine a lot will do with endorsements and such that will be inaccessible if they don't play in the CL or for a big club.

Like I imagine Alexis Sanchez probably has a much larger profile than if he for example went to PSG straight from Udinese, rather than playing for Barcelona or Arsenal. (Although I maybe ignorant about PSG's reach these days)

A quick glance on Twitter shows Sanchez is on 1.95m followers compared to Pastrore 1m and Verrati 200k followers - and likewise the Arsenal twitter has 9m followers compared to PSG's 4m. I'd imagine this is important to footballers and agents when sorting out where footballers want to play football.

Doesn't that prove my point given that PSG routinely do better in the Champions League than Arsenal but have a lower reach?

Arsenal have a large North American and Asian fanbase that I think would be surprisingly loyal if Arsenal dropped out of the Champions League (take ours as a point of reference) and the Premier League is marketable enough in its own right. It would hurt them to miss out on CL football, but I don't think its a death sentence or would significantly lower their appeal to players.
In fairness the likes of Ozil and Sanchez will only come if they can get CL football....

So y'know, if Simeone/Benitez/Tuchel lands lets say Rakitic and Morata next year rather than their Europa League equivalents. And snarky people talk about how new guy has taken Arsenal to the next level, (but also relying on Wenger delivering a fairly consistent level of success)

I've long thought it was overstated how much players want to play in the Champions League tbh.

I don't think the quality of players Arsenal want or need are content simply with playing the six group games and getting a hiding off the first decent side they face. They want to win the thing, and Arsenal haven't looked like doing that for years. Whilst it may hurt them to drop out for a year or two I don't think it will lead to an immediate decline in the quality of player they can attract; it is not like Sanchez and Ozil could have thought that they would win it their when they joined anyway.

Wenger has said he'll decide his future in "March or April".

Can't help but wonder who Arsenal fans expect to get if this is the end, which I think it might well be, and who they might blame if next season they fail to even make the top 6.

The manager obviously, but I think its at the point they'd like to see the club take the risk, even if it back fires, than take another season of predictable mediocrity.
Its been several years now since their Champions League adventures were anything other than one leg being decent and one leg being a catastrophe.

Yeah but competing in the Champion's League would get in the way of their ultimate goal of qualifying for the Champion's League.
Nah, I actually feel sorry for Arsenal fans. That team has no absolute bottle.

Xhaka might be the only one worth something, at least he could snap someone and show some fight.

Genuinely think he's one of the worst of the bunch. Seems to be a passenger in half their games and get sent off in the other half. Good passer in fairness, but doesn't control games like he could.

Good old Arsenal.
3-0 now to Manchester United, Juan Mata.

Leicester are in grave danger - are they going to be first ever reigning Premier League champions to be relegated?

If they carry on playing like this it's a certainty. We haven't been great and have put 3 past them.

I don't know if Ranieri is a victim of his own success or if its the only thing keeping him in the job, but they're really poor.
Well I'm trying to lose a bit of weight and like I said not much time for meal prep, so is that going to cause me to put on weight instead..


The equation is simple. Calories in - calories out. If your calories out is higher than your calories in then it doesn't matter what you eat you will lose weight. For example: http://www.niashanks.com/teacher-lost-weight-eating-mcdonalds/

If your only goal is weight loss and you're counting calories then you can simply trust the scales. If you're losing weight now it's proof that its working. You may need to jiggle with the numbers a bit later because your BMR will change as you lose weight, but we're talking a few calories here and there and its easily worked out.

You could probably eat more healthily (by which I mean more veg, less processed foods etc...) but it won't cause you to lose weight more quickly and, if you eat too much of it, it will cause you to put weight on just the same as unhealthy food, and if you're trying to his macros then you're already eating more healthily than a huge number of people.

Just find something you can stick too. There's no point beating yourself up for eating 'unhealthy' foods if it stops you from binge eating much worse stuff and blowing our your calorie goals.
Alright gym buddies.. Need some advice re nutrition. Have limited time to meal prep etc, so have a very similar diet each day.
Porridge with soy milk, beans with a sandwich, then one of the Tesco healthy living meals. Example
Are they actually healthy? I know microwavable shit isn't really good for you, but they seem to be fairly lenient on the macros side..
Also fruit and yogurts for snacks. Staying under my calories and macros usually, but mainly wondering if those tesco meals are doing me more harm than good?

Dropped about 3-4kg since Christmas, as my diet before was awful, so just cutting out the sugars has made a massive difference. Currently 81kg, trying to get to 79ish by March, and 75 by summer.

Also only drink these, again are they bad? No added sugars, I know they have the two sweeteners, but quick google seems to be positive.

When you say 'healthy' what do you mean?

People mean so many different things when they use the word I'm not sure what you're actually asking.
If you're using out performances as a yard stick then you really have fallen from grace

Well just think how infuriating it is that you haven't won in ages and we're still fucking 6th.

Maybe should have waited until you played them before you said anything?
I knew we were going to drop points after yesterdays results. Should have done something more fun. Seppuku or something.

Absolutely nothing about this team whatsoever; crumble under the slightest pressure.
This match is a perfect summary of our season.

Even more annoying in that everybody above us bar City dropped points and we fail to take advantage once again.

I think the perfect summary of our season is a game where we have a bajillion chances.

This is just crap. Feels like an LVG game.
If that fat fuck has actually seen that and thinks that is a penalty then I'd like to hear the explanation for why he doesn't give 10 penalties a game.

Jesus christ.
Despite the initial criticism, which I didn't really understand, it shows how important Mane has become .
Aye, what did happen to that young Norwegian kid who went to Real Madrid?

He only recently turned 18, has made his debut for Real Madrid already (their youngest ever player), and is on an 18 month loan right now.

He might have played more already for another team, but its definitely not gone badly for him so far.

No matter who plays, or what combination we put out, we're going to struggle as long as we're so fucking profligate.

As with the Liverpool game I think we probably shaded it, and possibly deserved more than a draw on the balance of play (not sure Stoke actually had a shot on target), but if you can't put the ball in the net you deserve everything you get, or don't get in this instance.
Fellaini's started every game we've lost this season.

Fellaini starts today and we're losing.

Anyway, we're probably going to lose today now thanks to that result so I'm sure the day won't be a total write off for Liverpool.
Hoofed it up about 3 times, Matip came on for about 4 minutes so you can fuck off

Tbf you were doing it most of the game, we did it in the last 5 minutes

Jurgen 'footballing purist' Klopp surely not resorting to hoofing it up to a centre-back?
Weird game. Liverpool created fuck all until about the 90th minute. We played absolutely shit, but had chances we should have taken before the penalty.

Important we didn't get beat, but if we played anything like we could have we should have won today.
VP was right; Xhaka is shite.
I tell you what though, for all the shit decisions it is quite nice that apparently the offside rule no longer applies to us.
Jones goes in hard with one foot and his other tucked behind him and Feghouli jumps in late with his two feet in front of him.

Neither are great tackles and worse than Feghouli's have gone unpunished recently (Hi Rojo) but its a red card. I'm not really sure why its controversial.
Jesus christ Giroud.
Every game you think they can't get any worse and the next one just tries to prove that wrong.

Jesus fucking christ. They're all awful.
Are you finally willing to admit he's good?

If he keeps up the form and can produce in the big games then sure.

I'm more than a bit worried about what went on at the start of the season, and what has been said about it by both him and Mourinho, but he's been a revelation since coming in so fair play.

It's a nice change to have low expectations of a player and be pleasantly surprised than expecting a lot and being let down.
I feel damn dirty watching that.

Shame we conceded that goal in the end and missed a few chances otherwise we could have given that cunt the twatting he deserves.
