The quality of the pens are terrible. No power no accuracy.

I heard he didn't allow running either. Or dribbling. Someone said that even using a ball was not allowed.

The average training session would involve all the players just standing there. So they say.

No wonder we didn't win anything.

Is it me or is Mkhytarian always looking lost in games away from home? Even in this friendly, he looked lost and my, that was a terrible penalty from him as the senior outfield player.


........ 1 - nil to The Arsenal

I'm more bothered about normal time.

1-1 isn't a terrible result against a team not going through the start up changes we are but I want relatively soon that we get back to beating teams like Athletico.

Athletico managed to build themselves up in the shadow of Barca and Real, we need to that now.
