As long as they have Luiz at centre back they wont have a spine.  A good few teams have kept City out when its attack v defence for 90 minutes and there are 9 defenders in or around the box. Completely different game when you're the team with most of the possession like when they play Brighton or Newcastle, and Luiz is caught flat footed against a team quick on the break, or they get caught out passing it around instead of clearing it.  Arsenal have beaten City twice and Liverpool in the last month but are no more likely to beat Watford and Villa this week.

Hi Smithills gent 

Bolton fans going into BarrowWays to troll them is one of the most embarrassing things I've ever heard of. How small-time have we now become?

Given the current climate I think it would be fitting to give the job to Phil Brown he would be our first black manager 🖤

More a case of Arsenal being brittle. Although they've beaten the countries two best sides, football a funny old game and all that. 

bang in form at the minute, 2nd in the form table - 13 from 18, outside chance of Europe I think too

be an interesting game anyway

up first though, Villa V Arsenal

if Villa can beat them, Watford have to

Aye, part of my thinking. If one battle sums up Watford v Arsenal, it's Deeney v Luiz. Thinking about it, he's surely got to play that Kolasinic fella or someone similar.

Luiz is a glorified Zat Knight/ Titus Bramble decent player but always capable of a massive brain fart and royally fucking things up.

If i had designs on challenging for the top four he wouldnt be in my side.

He’s a centre forward playing centre back

Luiz reminds me very much of Campo at CB.

If Big Sam had signed Luiz he'd have been played in the 'Campo role' and been a sensation.

I was going to say that yesterday.  Luiz is a midfielder, end of story, as Campo was.  I dont know many centre backs that are both less than average in the air and also lack pace.  Campo and Luiz very similar in that respect.  Both very accurate long and short passers with their right foot and useless with left; both not reliable at shooting but occasionally come up with a worldy.  Both full of drama and arm gestures, always blaming the ref or teammate when they get dispossessed or a pass goes astray.  Even without the hair they'd be similar but that just completes the comparison.

As much as Luiz looks a liability look at his honours list, must be doing something right

Mind you even Campo started and won a CL final

I never realised Campo had played in and won Champions League and if someone had told me hed got a medal id have assumed as a squad member. Full game though fair do's to him and remarkable really he came here and stayed a few seasons. Great memories

Should we have gone for someone nobody wanted then?

Sol Campbell might work out for some club

Or if it doesn't he can go back to managing Renaissance FC de Ngoumou.

I voted for Nigel Adkins, it still puzzles me that he isn't working and also that he got so few votes.

I'm not claiming I didn't want Evatt when it came to it, like most others not only was I enthused by his publicity and success last season, I was spooked by the mention of Sol Campbell so was desperate for the alternative.

There’s some belters on here 😂

As I said I was more than happy with his appointment and when we signed our 2 strikers I was buzzing even more.  Now, like most, I'm less enthusiastic, none of us thought it would be like this.  I would also have been happy at the time with Ricketts, I don't think he'd be in the frame now. Things change.  But when you're shopping in the bargain basement there are only so many proven managers to go round.

The thought of that arrogant, ego-maniac cunt Campbell representing my club makes me feel sick. I detest everything about him.
