These discussions usually end amicably with one side agreeing the other was correct all along.

Enjoyed that. Ruined by Nesbitt.

O'Neill got the tactics back to front.

Can you pinpoint the moment/year  where it went to shite?

I mean Liverpool have been shite for a long time now but it’s an entertaining kind of shite, kind like the late late toy show or winning streak.

Quite a number of serious miscalculations in succession.

Beat by Utd after 49 game unbeaten run, begins to immediately dismantle that squad, Boro Pimorac his right hand man has said that outright
Let Edu go to Valencia on free, Parlour to Middlesborough for free, strips leadership spine from team replaces with kids, pathetically refuses to give 30 year olds more than 1 year contract extension despite legions of them running the show for AC Milan in that era and Scholes, Giggs, etc. lording the Premiership well into their late 30's
Sol Campbell scores in Champions League Final, next season is playing for Portsmouth
Let Ashley Cole the 1 genuine world class homegrown player to come through the youth in his time go to Chelsea, signs Gallas the French mercenary in return
Gives Gallas the captaincy and Dennis Bergkamps number 10 jersey
Refuses to spend a modest sum on Van Der Sar from Fulham or Shay Given and instead insists on Almunia, a total clown
Signs Silvestre, Squillachi, Flamini for a second time, Nasri, persists with Diaby despite crocked, massively baised towards French players
Persists with Eboue, Clichy, Senderos, Bentdner, etc. despite being truely shocking
Buys Lasanna Diarra - inspired signing, MOTM in his first 3 games, drops him, Diarra calls Wenger out, Wenger sells Diarra in the next transfer window, literally bought in August sold in January
Re-signs Sol Campbell, re-signs Henry, re-signs Lehman, massively sentimental towards them
Sells Van Persie to Utd
Persists with Walcott (who has taken £60m out of the club in wages and sign on fees since he has been there!) but lets Serge Gnabry go
Refuses first buy back option on Fabregas
Lets Ozil and Sanchez contracts run down
Wastes Koscielny's career, a guy that could have been at Real, Barca, etc. by sorrounding him with second rate cannon fodder

Fairly chronological off top of the head. Had potential to win 3 or 4 leagues in last 11/12 years, pissed it away with pure stubbornness, unwillingness to spend, French bias bullshit, ineptitude and in the end he's just well past his sell by date, and you may forget the recent FA Cups, damn lucky to beat Wigan and Hull at Wembley in 2014. Champions League performance a much more accurate barometer of the fuckery he's overseen since the invincibles.

Haha! That's about right! Dein leaving around 2007 seemed to have an impact too.

I wouldn't be surprised.

This late Wenger era is just crap.

The most astonishing thing for me is the amount of high profile journalists coming out and stating that this is outstanding journalism.

Don't talk to me about sucking.

Great weekend in London getting to see my Cardinals live for the first time since 2000, but what a disappointing result and performance. Abandoned the run, went with 5 wides for 3 down in a row when you were just down 0-6. And then absolutely gave up after Palmer got injured.

Still, got to meet Aeneas Williams who was a real legend back when I was a season holder. Met the Owner. It was all positive apart from the actual game itself!

Thinking of next year - how easy to get a ticket and cost?

Say someone very close (friendship wise) to you is being investigated for having sex with a minor. You're asked to provide a character reference for that person for the time you've known them up to this point. At this stage the case has not been settled yet. What do you do?

I think I would give a reference as it has nothing to do with the possible crime. If convicted, and you're approached to give a reference to lessen the punishment, then no. At this stage you know they're not the person you thought they were.

At what stage were the references given?
