I just noticed tattoos on edersons knee through the hole in his Jean's.

He's really more tattoo than man.

You jest, but Ramsey is the closest thing we have to a modern day legend at Arsenal. Consistently scores important, often amazing goals, scored the winning goals in 2 FA Cup finals, helped break our trophyless run, and could, potentially have led us to winning our first European trophy. A lack of a premier league title, no matter how far off its seemed, is the only thing stopping him properly being thought of as a club legend. It's an absolute shame we're letting him go but this just highlights how hard it is keeping him fit. He absolutely deserves a massive send off at our last home game.

Just always wondered what could have been if he had managed to keep up his stellar form from that one season.

I agree. Scoring an FA Cup winning goal puts most players into folklore at their clubs at least, let alone scoring two with the first being the one to break a trophy drought of 10+ years. 

I read that both he and Cech are getting a guard of honour on Sunday before the Brighton game.

The most difficult thing for me is how the fuck we replace him, because there is nobody in the squad that can.

Takes a special kind of wanker to mock the disabled.

Hazza seems like a good lad. Clearly his time at the Orient was beneficial to him.

Rafael Benítez has suggested he is close to recommitting himself to Newcastle United and could soon renew a contract which expires next month.

The Spaniard has sometimes cut a tense figure in recent weeks but on Friday his body language seemed relaxed, he was all smiles and there was a sense the club had indicated they were willing to try to fulfil at least some of his ambitions.

“I was talking to Lee Charnley [Newcastle’s managing director] this week, we will continue talking and we will let you know as soon as we have more news,” said Benítez as he prepared to face his former side Liverpool at St James’ Park on Saturday night. “I am positive that we are talking and everybody knows what is my idea. At least we can move forward a little bit. I would like to see this club growing and growing and going where I think it deserves to be.”

When asked for confirmation that the talks had been positive and he was now inclined to stay, his reply seemed instructive. “Yes,” he said. “I can say yes, it seems that things are at least moving forward and we will see if something is right at the end. Maybe we are getting closer.”

Newcastle supporters have long been lobbying Mike Ashley, the club’s owner, to reach agreement with his manager and Benítez emphasised the strength of the emotional bond he enjoys with them before indicating that compromise with Ashley over an ambitious managerial manifesto could be in the Tyneside air.

“I know the fans are supporting me and trying to convince me to stay and I appreciate that,” said Benítez. “I am really pleased with that. I am happy in the city. I am happy here and the staff, everybody, is doing a very good job and we are very comfortable here. But the point is we want to progress, we want to be more competitive and we want to be in a better position. But there are a lot of positives and one of them, for sure, is the fans behind us.”

Benítez spent six years in charge of Liverpool, winning, among other things, the Champions League in 2005, and narrowly missing out on the Premier League title. Now a man whose family home remains on the Wirral has the chance to possibly help determine whether that latter prize is destined for Merseyside or Manchester City and is keen to quash talk of potential bias.

“I have friends in the Liverpool camp, I have friends also in the Manchester City side,” he said. “I have a good relationship with both Guardiola and Klopp. My relationship with Liverpool, the city, the fans, is there. I was there six years. I have good memories but we have to do our job. We will be professional and we want to win.”

Benítez did Klopp a favour by beating City on Tyneside earlier in the season. “I was tempted to bring a picture Liverpool fans sent to me when we beat Man City,” he said. “But I have nothing to say about the destination of the title.”

Kane did something similar recently didn't he? Just went and looked and it was this I was thinking of

Going out of his way to do things like that video or send that message can have such a big impact on these kids so it's just really nice seeing him do it, seems a good man.

Can I just state that 7:45 on a Saturday night is the worst kickoff time ever invented? At least for midweek ones you finish work and go, today I'm just hanging about all day, then my night is done too. Glad it's a bank holiday.

Bournemouth starting their third choice goalkeeper, a 19 year old who's last senior appearance came for Weymouth.

 

Watch Spurs lose.

What were Sky playing at there? Pretending the ref had given a foul while Spurs were actually attacking. Bizarre, and a cracking tackle from Dier too.

Son clearly wanting to save himself for Ajax midweek. All part of the master plan!

Poch will find a way to moan about something at the end of the game

Well when only 3 teams are left to win the CL, perhaps it is a left handed twist of fate to have Son rested for it.

Spurs and Ajax are playing for the right to get beat by Barca realistically.

Somehow it is now within Chelsea's own power to finish 3rd.

 

 

Defeat at home to Watford tomorrow: guaranteed.

Ryan Fraser now has 14 assists this season, a total only Jadon Sancho can match in Europe's top 5 leagues.

      Wild and bold predictions, ahoy.
    • By Lineker
      Fixtures for the new Premier League season will be released at 9am tomorrow morning, so let's make some predictions for the new season which will probably look stupid in six months or so: 
      Spurs will only scrape top-4 due to the Wembley effect. Pep's Man City will struggle again due to Ederson failing to settle. Arsenal to finish 6th. Huddersfield and Brighton will survive. Newcastle will be relegated with a different manager in place by Christmas. Watford will be relegated. Bournemouth will finish above Southampton. Bilic or Puel will be the first manager to be sacked. Talking of Newcastle...

      Fixtures for the new Premier League season will be released tomorrow morning, so let's make some bold predictions for the new season ahead: 
      Leicester will only manage a top-ten finish. Chelsea will only make the Europe League spots at best. Top 4 of Man City, Man Utd, Spurs and Arsenal. In what order I have no idea. Liverpool will just miss out towards the very end of the season. Watford to continue to struggle under a new manager, particularly if one of Deeney or Ighalo leave, and get relegated. Bournemouth build on last season and do well again. Hull to straight back down to the Championship with Middlesborough. Burnley to just scrape survival, at the expense of... let's say Crystal Palace. Koeman's Everton to finish below his old club Southampton despite spending a metric fuckton of money. Pulis (WBA) or Guidolin (Swansea) to be sacked first.

      So yeah, it was kind of getting lost in the talks of actual football, but if you'd like to join the EWB Fantasy Premier League, the code is below. Use this thread for fantasy team discussions and such.

    • By DavidMarrio
      I remember a while ago we used to predict who would finish where in the table so I thought I'd put EWB to the test and see who was the best at predicting what would happen in the Prem this season. Who will be our version of Paul the Octopus and who will be as good as predicting things as Mark Lawrenson. There will be 5 questions with a total of 100 points up for grab and come the end of the season I will add all the points up to crown our first winner.
      Question 1) Top goal scorer (5 points for correctly guessing the top scorer, A extra 10 points is awarded for guessing top scorer and amount of goals)
      Question 2) Most assists (5 points for correctly guessing the top assist maker, A extra 10 points is awarded for guessing top and amount of assists)
      Question 3) First team to sack their manager (10 points)
      Question 4) Predict the table (2 points for each correct position,
      Question 5) Predict the three teams which get promoted to the Prem (5 points for each team guessed correctly, If you get all three correct; a extra 5 points is awarded)
       
      Here are my answers:

      1) Diego Costa - 22 goals
      2) Coutinho- 14 Assists
      3) Watford will sack their manager first
      4) Chelsea, Man.Utd, Man.City, Arsenal, Liverpool, Tottenham, Swansea, Southampton, Everton, Stoke, West Ham, Crystal Palace, Newcastle United, West Brom, Aston Villa, Leicester, Sunderland, Bournemouth, Norwich, Watford
      5) QPR, Middlesbrough, Hull City
