Septic Tank is Cockney slang for Yank. Septic is a Londoner's gently sarcastic way of describing an American. Credit: contributed by Danny on 21-Apr-2000.21 Apr 2000

That film is so cringey


Yeah, melodramatic nonsense. It was so cringe worthy that I watched it with my hands covering my eyes half the time like it was a horror movie. The whole film was bad enough but casting Frodo as the innocent boy (which of course he can easily play) turned street tough (he is the last person on Earth who should play that role) was absolutely absurd. Must have been embarrassing for West Ham supporters.

A cockney-type describing Americans as "septic" is the equivalent of a toothless, tobacco-chewing American hillbilly out of Deliverance describing English as having bad teeth. The irony is too much.

..................

Anyways, back to Wilshere..... please go. For the sake of the club and himself. He's never going to be the starting 11 player for Arsenal that he should of been. It's sad for supporters and Wilshere alike but the club can't make the same mistake they did with keeping a Diaby-esque injury prone player on the wage bill for years and years and years (I always think what players might have been purchased to play central midfield if Wenger wasn't instead waiting years for Diaby to become fit).

Perhaps Wilshere should give a mid-table Spanish side a try rather than an English one. If he's stays in England, he'll still be hacked to bits regardless of who he plays for. In Spain, all he has to do if an opposing defender approaches him is sit down, roll around, and scream in agony as if he's been stabbed. His teammates will surround the ref, he'll be rewarded a free-kick, and he won't constantly be risking his ankle. Might actually get to see his technical abilities at work again.

Time for Jack to go, i'd rather keep Xhaka tactically, or let them both go and get N'Zonzi.

Give Ozil #10.

He's had his talk with Emery and it looks like it didn't go too well.

Good ........ no more Mr nice guy.

He's obviously told Jack what they're willing to offer pay wise and that he'll not be guaranteed a starting spot = Jack is off.

I approve, just because players declare a love for the club doesn't mean AFC should be a feathered nest egg for mediocre players, otherwise we may as well give Carl Jenkinson £300k per week.

...........only at AFC have we let "decent" players think they're entitled to super star money, fk off is what I say!!
