This Arsenal side are pathetic. They need to get rid of Wenger asap.

Some fine attacking play by Liverpool all the same.

Don`t agree with getting rid of Wenger. Great fun watching the Gooners getting humped yesterday.

Don`t take away our fun. Wenger must stay Very Happy

I notice the Liverpool media mafia have swung into action to try gain sympathy for Sadio Mane afte he saw red yesterday. Fair enough it wasn't deliberate but, good grief, he almost took the goalies head off.

Is Gary Neville a member of the Liverpool media mafia?

It wasn't deliberate, but a guy on Talksport nailed it last night when he said Mane wasn't in control of the outcome of his actions, therefore it ticks the box for a red card.

I think the controversy over the red card has given Kopp a reason to deflect away from his team's shortcomings.
He's had four transfer windows to try to fix their defence but doesn't seem one step closer to doing so.
The two big centre halves that play for Northern Ireland aren't world beaters by any means but they know how to defend.

Gary Neville feels the need to over compensate to avoid accusations of Utd bias.

Packie Bonnar,. Murdo McLeod and Derek Johnston never seem to feel that need.

I think it had to be a red card for Mane - if the goalkeeper had cleaned him out in the same way, it would have been a penalty and a red card without question.

Then again, Gary Neville is maybe less pro Liverpool and more anti Man City as he might see them as being a bigger threat to Man United in the title race.

Carragher said it was a red card anyway.

It was almost the reverse of the Harold Schumacher incident years ago. A definite red card.

Arry Redknapp sacked at Brum... they must have sooo much money now to sack managers so quickly.

In fact the EFL or whatever the the other 3 divisions got a 600 million TV deal over 5 years. Scottish football isnt a spectacle and the SFA & SFL cannot see this?

The spfl don't get a mega TV deal because Scotland only has population of 5 million. English football league has two former European Cup winners playing in it as well as another whole host of clubs that have won European trophies. They also have a couple of dozen clubs that are bigger in terms of support than any club in Scotland bar the old firm. It's nothing to do with spectacle because I doubt Gillingham v Charlton was much better to watch than Inverness v Livingston but more people would tune into the latter.

Pretty obscene the money getting thrown at English football TBH

I know its not everyones cup of tea but if you want to watch a Scotland international game you need to subscribe to an overly priced Sky package,go to the pub and watch it or just not bother.Yet we get hammered with England games,not just men but women also on STV

Ps,Scotland v Slovakia apparently available on Sky Sports mix which is a free channel on a bog standard Virgin Media package

Well if stv or BBC want to show Scottish football they just need to pay more than Sky.
