Re: Arsenal v Burnley - Player Ratings

Absolutely ridiculous to think McNeil has had the flair sucked out of him and does our manager a disservice. It also does our opponents a disservice. Do people honestly not think the opposition have done their homework on McNeil, put him on his right foot, double up on him, don’t take him lightly. T...

Yes. Let’s all drop someone for creating more goals in one half from a position where we created one goal all last season. That should work well for Eric’s morale... Dwight can play with anyone.
