Just keep a straight face and ask "Do you think you're too good to go down?"
Obviously in rea life you can say what you want.
How do you guys treat the office? We have a couple of Woolwich fans, so far Ive taken the humble route of saying I feel sorry for Woolwich fans.
Of course inside im loving every second of their stupid pantomine. Thanking the lord every day for Stan Kronke.
Am I allowed to let my true feelings be known? Or will it end in trouble. Im new, and the gooners have been there for a while.
Everyone carries portion of the blame but the main thing for me is the lack of a winning mentality and no transfer window can buy you that
Even Chiellini in his broken English said it once - our history is that of bottlers. A just-about team. Perennial losers.
Until we instill a culture of winning (which ironically comes from sustained success) - nothing will change. As domestic cups is the easiest place to start - but would Levy agree?
That's it in a nutshell. Until we win a trophy, we will be and deserve to be at the butt of every joke. We had a crop of players for a few years that were good enough to win multiple trophies but didn't win anything. Its hard to put that down to anything other than lack of character and bottle in those players and managerial shortcomings.

And beating Utd 2-0 and 3-0 meant that we didn’t have the squad to beat them in the cup even though the cup loss was slap bang in the middle of our two wins over them.
Also knocking City, the PL champions out the CL over two legs meant we didnt have the squad to beat Liverpool in the final.
If only there was a way to foul a thread and send it to the bin
I think Poch was simply conveying the instructions from ENIC at the beginning of the season - focus on competitions that maximize our profits - CL and PLI can’t see why he wouldn’t, everything we win (if we could) reflects well on the club. Trouble is, if you have a manager who publicly says the cups don’t matter that much then it’s not going to rub off well on the players or fans. Look at Liverpool, it’s obvious klopp doesn’t rate cup competitions but he hasn’t said so in public as far as I’m aware. Now, Mourinho wouldn’t say that, he’s already said he wants to win every competition we are in. (I’m sure privately he prefers to win the league but he’s not going to come out and say that). That should be the mindset.
Anyway, it’s an annual embarrassment that we haven’t won the cup since 1991. 1991 FFS!
Wigan won it a few years ago, the comp is not taken seriously anymore..only by Woolwich
What blame do you apportion to Poch for the semis and finals he lost?
