    Now I think Robbie Savage is a complete bellend, but I cant disagree with his reaction here.
    There's one-eyed fans, then theres this bloke

    That's twice this season already that Kane has fallen over in the box with his arms raised pleading for a penalty. Both times VAR has said no, both times pundits and refs alike have said no penalty, both times he's escaped being carded.

    Grealish gets kicked twice, makes the pass whilst falling over to Lansbury to score, doesn't claim for a penalty at all and gets carded for diving as well as Villa having a likely point taken away from them by a referee.

    the no card thing is the least of the penalties.
    Suarez/Ronaldo were blasted as flat out cheats. Kane has skated the whole time.
    and lets not forget Dele Alli, his antics are worse and he gets the same free pass.

    Not even considering Harry Kane, the Grealish thing has really annoyed me. Dude is punished for playing football.
    OK

    I'm fine with Mkhi going to Roma, but it really makes me doubly wish we still had Iwobi around.
    I guess this is really opening the door for Nelson or Martinelli to fill the gaps and make it count in cup games.

    Iwobi has nabbed a couple for Everton already, 1 in a cup game and 1 in the league; both headers haha. He was only ever good enough to be a squad player for us, but he did provide pretty good depth I think.

    Mkhi seems to have really dropped off, his cameo in the NLD was a bit of a nail in the coffin for me. For a senior player on big money it just wasn't good enough.
    The Roma deal looks pretty good, wages fully paid for and a fee by the sounds of it, not a bad bit of business.

    Elneny gone as well, makes total sense; more rational moves from the team.

    In other news, Guendouzi has been called up to the France squad to replace an injured Pogba!


    Absolutely fantastic and well deserved, what a guy!
    Hard to believe he's only 20 years and came out of ligue 2. I remember when we got him and Torreira and I just expected him to go out on loan or hang around in the u23s, then suddenly he's starting against City and Chelsea in our first games of the season, like wtf is this about?

    Was he a Sven Mislintat signing??

    Edit: Survey says Yes!

    'injured' heh heh heh.
    Good to see France management looking after the egos of senior players by not just telling the media that Pogba is trash and that our boy Guendouzi is better and more awesome.

    It's going to be a glorious day when Alli and or Kane get sent off by the VAR. Their grubbiness off the ball can only last so long before big brother tells the ref about it.
    OK

    Thoroughly enjoyable NLD and I imagine even a neutral would have liked watching it.

    I was surprised how direct Arsenal were at times, and we continually peppered sp*rs goals and on another day we would have finished a few more of those chances.

    Sp*rs looked good on the counter, Son gave us major headaches, and they too had a few chances to bury the game.

    Outside of the inexcusable dive in for the pen, I thought Xhaka had a good game. He seemingly has been lumped into the Mustafi category unfairly in my opinion.

    Ceballos made an instant impact which is great to see.

    It was awesome to see the front three play together, and once Pepe has gelled with the team more it will pay off in big ways.

    This was the first game I've watched AMN and not hated his attacking and/or defensive positional awareness, I thought this was his best game for that.

    Arsenal had about 2 different mild penalty shouts which neither were a penalty, but both were more of a penalty than Kane's dive late in the game. Kane's dive made no sense that the ref awarded the foul to Arsenal, but didn't card him. Like Frodo said, if Grealish gets carded for playing the game then why is Kane not carded for actively attempting to fabricate a foul.

    Guendouzi, far out I am so so glad that plaguesey put us onto this guy. PSG will be drafting up a 100m bid as we speak.
    OK

    Cost us 7.2 million.

    PSG has already enquired at around 40 million for him and were rejected straight up. He is starting to learn to control a game better as well. Torreira needs to get settled again and find his form. He looks like new Kante instead of old Kante right now.

    I'm very very salty right now.

    Concede from a corner, then Sheffield put 9 players behind the ball for 45 mins and gave up on passing completely.

    Add in a Mike Dean masterclass and I'm frothing.

    Also, David Luiz is still utter trash. Can't win a header against anybody or pass the ball under any sort of pressure. Bloke is a fraud.

    if Emery is gonna start behaving this way i might have to reconsider scouting players like Torriera and Ceballos for him.

    I can't tell if he just thought this game would be easy or if he is prioritising the Europa league, but he played our weakest backline and half our attack.

    I guess we'll find out in 3 days time when they get to Portugal.
