necessary around here are you..
two champions league finals in 4 years also suggests they aren't second rate.
Are arsenal second rate cos they've certainly achieved less in that time.
Liverpool could win the league this year.
they've finally got the quality striker needed.
and they haven't ballsed up the start.
-too many average players
-lack of ambition going forward
-will get found out against better teams
-lucky so far
you have your opinion.
I have mine.
I didn't say they will win the league, and I could care less if they do or not.
so much lol
is their ability to have a bit of banter without mentioning every honour ever. I'd love just once for one of them to mention something about five this, or 19 that, but they just don't, do they? Bless 'em.
if you're club had an honours list as long as that you'd bring it up when someone said they were "second rate" I think thats fair..
but to call the Champions League win a fluke is a massive mis-step in judgement, they fully deserved it.
but to call us second rate is laughable..
as the team may be entirely changed by then.
I could care less what you've done in the past. It's boring as sin.

this 'Look at what we did! Aren't we brill!' nonsense then? Cheers. Because I don't want to have to forcefeed you all info about how many midlands leagues it's actually possible to play in.
I honestly dont shout stats all the time because it is the arguement of the simpleton generally. But second rate ? I thought it was the perfect riposte, not so sure why everyone is getting so wound up by it to be honest..
Climb down now son, it's all over.
And all Liverpool fans shout the stats, it's what you're famous for. If I see one more fat bald cunt with five stars on his arm I'm going to go postal.
I'm fully aware it was all in jest hence the hahaha in my post.. Its everyone else who jumped all over it...
was the primary purpose of kissinginkansas and GalacticStar3ruption posting Torres in the first place, knowing that as a fanbase, you have a reputation for not taking jokes very well and going apeshit if anyone questions the greatness of your club.
Congratulations on putting paid to that stereotype and not rising to the bait.
which bit exactly is going to change my mind?
Ricky_Ronco is helping me hate Liverpool that little bit more.
He's missing more points than Luton.
If I'm drunk and in a pub with Liverpool fans I also wind them up, it's far too easy really. They probably do care, in my experience they care quite a lot.
they had a minute's silence.
was a fucking fix and you know it
You just made yourself look silly by posting it all in a big list.
And Torres is too good for Liverpool, that was my point.
but especially 1998
he had just scored the winner in a European final.
for Man City
the greatest signing of all time is Tony Cascarino for Marseille. When they were on the brink of disaster. At risk of losing everything and generally going tits up. Maybe not quite 'second rate', but still.
That's practically every goal he scored for them.
Actually, my Marseille 96/97 home shirt arrived in the post today from classicfootballshirts.co.uk.
stop talking about tony bloody cascarino.
He's my ultimate hero I think.
Did I tell you about the dream I had where PSG offered £3.5million to Welton Rangers for me, and so I was gonna move to France? Best dream ever.
but you have now, so thanks.
the League in 1995.
David May, on the other hand, won two leagues, two FA Cups and the European Cup. Incredible
though that might have had something to do with Jack Walker's moolah.
To be fair I don't begrudge him signing for Newcastle, but choosing Blackburn ahead of United in 1992 was baffling.
amazing signing in hindsight.
but didn't it contribute to them fucking up the league that year when they were 12 points clear?
Though that was probably the dodgiest deal ever so not sure it counts?
for wednesday & west ham
Probably the most suprising deal of the last few years.
Deco for Chelsea, Arteta for Everton, Ronaldo for Man Utd. etc etc.
second rate teams.
see start of thread..
nearly - circa '93-94
arrrggghhhh what couldve been
gianfranco zola (90's chelsea)
Peter Halmosi, Akos Buzsaky, Kristian Timar - All magical Magyars. Halmosi and Buzsaky are sorely missed although Akos Buzsaky was with the rest of the Green Army at Reading a few weeks back. What a guy.
Darren Bent - best signing ever. That £16.5 pretty much stopped us from going to administration.
paid the bills.
Number 5 on this list made me laugh.
He's probably my favourite footballer ever.
I know it sounds odd but they did finish 12th the season before and had Bruce Rioch as manager. Oh and before I get Arsenal's entire league record spouted at me, I'm an Arsenal fan, I know.
