Are we watching the semi-final tonight? I've been watching the women's football for a few years and the improvement in the play has been amazing. The ladies game has gone from being something to be mocked and laughed at to something being shown prime time in BBC 1.

Come on The Lionesses!!!

Hopefully catch the second half. Going to the cinema this evening to see Spiderman but should be back in time for it.

It would certainly be potent but Arsenal thinking they will get anywhere with 40mil bids is laughable.
Anyone that thinks it's a serious bid is a bit deluded. It's just tactics that Sanllehi is playing. Might backfire, might not. Most probably will but it's honestly down to how much Zaha wants to force the move. No point in keeping a player that doesn't want to be there on his kind of wages (highest paid CP player I believe?) and wont put in the performances. I doubt he'll put in a transfer request considering how much money he will personally lose because of it but you never know. This is gonna go down to deadline day for sure haha. I don't think it will happen and honestly I would rather we focused on our pathetic defence instead.

Yeah, Kroenke wants Arssneal to get better and isn't putting a penny into the club's transfers funds from what I've read.
Even Mike Ashley has put more into Newcastle lol.
It would be interesting to see a frontline of Laca, Auba and Zaha.
He hasn't put a single penny in nope, and he never will. He's mental if he thinks Arsenal can seriously compete on a self sustained business, but he's not mental. His comments about how he wants Arsenal to win the Prem and CL are laughable and a lie. He doesn't care as long as we continue to make a profit and keep generating money to fund his other projects. A lot of rot behind the scenes in this club and it will take many years to clear.
In the meantime, the only people that suffer are the fans. Of course. I'm in a real dilemma on whether to get the new shirt because while it's one of the nicest we've seen for ages and I haven't bought a home kit for years now, I'm really hating the lack of ambition the board is showing. Might wait and see how they act during this transfer window.

My mate at work who's an Arsenal fan said pretty much those exact words!

One of my friends is a Newcastle fan and he joked at least I'm not an Arsenal, Spurs or United fan lol.
But I do hope they can get back some form rather than it in patches
I mean, we've gone from 10 years of contending for Europe and the later stages of cup competition for a good portion of it to a single season above the top 10 in the most recent 10 years (including two seasons in the Championship). I'd take Arsenal, Spurs or United's position over ours any day :p

On more positive notes, the Lionesses did do very well last night. It was a bit heartbreaking with the missed penalty and disallowed goal but ultimately a semi-final defeat to the best team in the world (who we pushed the whole way, I'd add) is a good result for the tourney.
