  1. Andy saying something positive, the end is nigh!* *Saying this purely in jest Massengo appears to be a truly exceptional talent and has already had scouts from Arsenal coming to watch him.
  2. 6 more southern fixtures than northern. I assume just more southern teams as Gloucester have to travel to Whitby!
  3. Could be a tv game? Suspect Tamworth vs Hereford might get picked. Wealdstone Played 11, won 10 2 divisions above Farm. Can see goals.
  4. The Wealdstone Ranger will love The Creek. "Ya got no fans"
  5. The Nathan Baker of the singing fans?
  6. I just hope we're able to offload Massengo before he turns 30 in 2 years time
  7. I'm sick of idiotic conspiracy theories on here, or just what people are thinking might be the case being stated as fact. From the Chelsea bought Massengo for us, injuries, Arsenal with Nketiah, etc. Not saying this necessarily fits exactly as one of those, but it IS a conspiracy without anything to back it up. Evidence of different countries faking ages at youth level bears no relevance to a senior player, nor do rumours made up by Nigerian bloggers after their national team put in a particularly poor performance. Equally, the fact that some refugee children might not know their age isn't relevant in the case of a player who stayed in his country of birth until his late teens and who came from a background that wasnt poor- his own words. You say I don't know the answer about Bony's age as if him being his actual age is just as likely as him having faked it.ffs
  8. I haven't said anything contradictory. Some reading comprehension is needed for you. You can't throw an accusation at someone and just expect them to take it. Some people might shrug it off, but I didnt. Just to spell it out for you. I did NOT say Arsenal are totally innocent. I said you cannot know for a fact that it was purely down to them. The fact you found that to be something you needed to suggest is an apologist's stance is frankly ludicrous. Nothing I have said has been paradoxical, give your head a wobble and read it all again. As for me being sensitive. You tried to patronise, why should I take that lying down?
  9. It was claimed about Martins, though it seems Nigerian bloggers were just saying it about all their players after a bad international tournament. https://www.theguardian.com/football/2010/feb/21/nigerian-football-age-old-problem There has been a history of some countries- particularly Nigeria- faking the player ages, but once again this is mostly at youth level and there are now measures used to prevent that.
  10. The only European in the link you sent was an Englishman. Not a player, but still a case of someone, apparently, faking their age. I'm claiming to be an expert on it, I just find it is a very lazy conspiracy to throw at someone who apparently peaked early, which also ignores that they had big injuries or a very severe illness while at the age most players would be in their prime. Yes Owen was a silly example, but it was there to make a point.
  11. Literally backed up what I'm saying. It happened a couple (literally) of times above youth level. The majority of those in there being for u17 or whatever age group teams. Don't think Bony will be in our u16s do you? Do you think Michael Owen actually 10 years older than he claims? He peaked early, and like Bony had some big injuries. No malaria though.
  12. That isnt the case with Bony though is it? He played in Ivory Coast until 2008 before his transfer to Sparta Prague. If he had come here as a refugee child 20 years ago then fine. But he didnt.
  13. I pulled you up for asserting as a fact it was entirely down to the club. You then addressed me in a patronising way and accused me of being an apologist for essentially saying "it might not be completely down to the club alone" So there is plenty of cause for you to do such a thing. I'm admitting nothing because I didn't state that Arsenal aren't responsible for any perceived shabby treatment. Perhaps when you have extracted you head from your anus you might try to see that there can be a middle ground between "destroy that club, they screwed us over" and "they did absolutely everything to try and get the player to join us but he wouldn't". Such a middle ground being where the truth most likely is.
  14. Yes, one zone in particular. All African players are actually 10000 years older than what they say. Fam is doing a tremendous job considering he should be rotted away by now.
