Heard a great quote today.

"This current City side is like watching the Arsenal side 13 years ago. And the current Arsenal side is like watching the City side 13 years ago.

Sad but true.

I wonder how the side Arsene leaves us with will compare to the one Bruce and George left us with?
Forget all about the invincibles Because none of them are or will be around when Arsene finally leaves.
Will our next manager walk into a Squad that includes the likes of Bergkamp Wrighty Adams Keowen Dixon Winterburn Parlor Seaman? They should be so lucky.
Arsene inherited a solid foundation and turned it into a wonderful state of the art Palace but has slowly but surely let it go into a state of neglect and the next bloke looks like he's going to get a lot of subsidence and crumbling timber to sort out before he even starts rebuilding.

Good analogy post G62.
Couldn't have put it better myself.

Very true Derby.

The more you look at it Dags the worse it seems mate.
I thought Fergie left United with either a lot of old or underwhelming players and Moyes had lot to do on top of having to somehow follow on from English footballs most successful manager ever.
But to me it looks like Moyes had it easy compared to our next manager!
Who ever comes in will have to live up to Arsene's prime years with only 14 or 15 year's of slow but sure deterioration and non competitiveness to build on.
People will always compare to the invincibles which in truth was the fantastic exception and not the norm by a, long long way.
First 7 years fantasticly competitive 14 or 15 year's not at the races, the history books will question how Pelgrini Ranieri Mancini Ancelloti and Mourinhos reigns were so short at Chelsea City Leicester when they all won titles during a, period when Arsenal couldn't get close yet Arsene continued to reign so long at Arsenal.
The people of the future will still be asking how and why about Stonehenge and the Pyramids but they will also have Arsene and Arsenal to try and work out and understand too :-)

Dags it kills me to say it but this current city team is not as good as the old Arsenal invincibles, I'm honest as they come and they were the best footballing side I've witnessed along with the brilliant Liverpool team with rush, McMahon etc.

Very true G62.

Respect to you Raver 👍.

The Liverpool sides of tbe 80s were awesome not because of there fantastic performances but how long they maintained it for, Everton too had a real purple patch with Southall Radcliffe and co then there was Caantana Giggs Beckham and co at united then the invincibles short but extremely sweet and now there is city who in my opinion are knocking on the door of the all time great teams I've witnessed. I suppose I should mention Leeds too because they were dominat for a time but I never enjoyed watching them very very much. Oh and I suppose Forest and Derby should get a mention also.

How times change gunner, in 1999 my boss was a huge man city fan and he had a few spare tickets to watch city v Gillingham div 3 play off final and i was there watching it. He said that day how hard it was to be a city fan and they never win anything lol. I haven't seen him for years until he appeared on the news after winning the national lottery and he said he's buying his own box at the Etihad lol. How times changed for him in football terms and money terms.

Raver i could be wrong too, they will win the league but they are not as good as is being made out. Good, very good but not great. They have question marks in midfield and at the back. I wasnt here but shouldn't they have had a player sent off against West brom who they struggled to beat in the last few minutes. Season could have been different then and when we had certain bad decisions against them. They will be found out but they are better than the rest at the minute.

Steve does your memory stretch far enough to remember Pires dive v Portsmouth to win a penalty and 1 1 draw that made that ultimately made the invincibles, invincible?
Every team that achieves anything great has the rub of the green somewhere mate.
Cliff Thulburns first ever televised 147? The fist red hot the jaws of the pocket he was aiming for rolled along the cushion and dropped into the opposite corner pocket, the next 146 points were quality snooker but the first lucky point made the rest possible.

15 Dec 2017 20:59:57
Gunner i'm not making out they are lucky, i just think they are over hyped too soon.

15 Dec 2017 21:04:49
Maradonas hand of god in 86 gunner, I remember that game so well and England were the better side.

16 Dec 2017 01:18:19
Steve we will see how they do in the champs league because when they compare city with European wining Liverpool or united sides and the invincibles that in part narrowly lost to Barcelona later . That's when you will see if they are that good. Pep said that people said they couldn't play Barcelona style in the EPL and he did! But can he be best in europe.
