    Potential signings

    Assuming you don't mean Southampton's Maya Yoshida you are probably referring to Gen Shoji (shirt number 3). Wiki says that he is 25 and has played all of his senior career at Kashima Antlers (144 apps since 2011). Transfermarkt values him at approx. £1.5m and this is what the Guardian's world cup squad guide says of him: "Not the biggest, but Shoji is renowned for his tough, robust defending. He rose to prominence with his performances at the Club World Cup in 2016, where Kashima Antlers came from behind to lead against Real Madrid in the final before ultimately going down in extra time. He was originally at the Gamba Osaka academy until the age of 14 but struggled to cope with the competition for places and quit the game altogether for a period."

    Purple and lime remains

    It’s going to be a red, white, black, purple, and lime tartan isn’t it.

    Hi Graham, many thanks for your reply. I’ll address your concerns in turn. 1. Dunno. How big are Arsenal? Are we talking stadium capacity because that is circa 60,000 I think. That’s quite large. Are we talking cultural impact? Hard to quantify but probably pretty big. They do have a tube station named after them so maybe they’re doing ok? Shall we say they are roughly humpback whale size? Maybe start a thread on this? 2. Their medical team could even be seven people. Although obviously they’ve just lost a guy so I’ll give you that one...it probably is 6 people, plus a work experience kid. I’m going to respectfully ignore your little jibe you joker. 3. Neither you nor I know how involved he was in Diaby’s massages or water baths. Maybe he ran the baths or maybe he ran from the baths. Who knows. But, as we have the same level of knowledge we have the same authority to speculate on his involvement. I say he was wholly culpable for Diaby’s prolonged medical table tenure. Enjoy Portugal v Spain!

    So have we just brought in the bloke who masterminded Abou Diaby’s rehabilitation?
  5. Between 1,500 and 2,000 based on the three screenshotted polls on JL's twitter posted above.
  6. I also like the coat of arms (or the simplified coat of arms to be pedantic). But personally feel that including the supporting unicorns and the helm was always a bit much. If we simply had the shield with the castle and ship, then that would work better. However as that doesn't seem to be an option I'll enjoy having the robin and bridge back.
  7. This is why I like the Robin. I want our badge to be an easy answer in the pub quiz picture round, not a hard one.
  8. I like it. I like that it is more distinctive. However, I would have taken the opportunity to modernise it just a little bit. Not sure how, but I might have just made a few tweaks.

    Julen Lopetegui - Spain Manager Sacked (Merged)

    An exceptional demonstration of egos, emotions and impulsions exploding into a very public display of lunacy. What a magnificent start to this World Cup.

    Magnússon on his way

    I work with companies far smaller than FTSE 250. I’m yet to see a CEO pay himself less than £100,000, regardless of market cap or turnover. Think the worst I saw was a plc quoted on AIM and turning over £2m...CEO paid himself £750k. Remuneration resolution scraped through at the AGM. No comment on the performance of those CEOs though!

    Magnússon on his way

    Which is £300k a year. Perfectly possible for a chief exec of a company this size.

    Ryan Fredericks...biggest case of "one that got away"?

    Ed Balls on watchdog fighting for standing sections

    Ah...my mistake. When they said the seats wouldn't be used I read it as meaning the entire area would not be used. Obviously you're correct and the seats will be locked up so technically won't be used.

    Ed Balls on watchdog fighting for standing sections

    Big piece on the Guardian's site about Shrewsbury's new rail seat area https://www.theguardian.com/football/2018/may/24/shrewsbury-safe-standing-league-one-rail-seating-rotherham-play-off-final This bit seemed odd though "The seats at Shrewsbury are unlikely to be used during matches..." Anyone know why this is the case?
