The dynamic has certainly changed. I try to avoid getting soiled (unless it's that type of party), so don't read the forehead-smash-typing, barely coherent, amoebic-dysentery-disguised-as-words output that one finds on what their mutated, tufty-haired, knuckle-dragging fans laughably call Arsenal chat forums. Instead I read the HYS's on the BBC, which are downright hilarious (unless you're easily triggered!).

What has become clear to me is that the whole feel around the Arse (not that kind of feel around the arse) has gone from moronic elation over their 'undefeated streak' to equally moronic, but vastly more amusing, hair-tearing frustration and woe, which erupts (in much the same manner as a three-week festered boil would) every time things go wrong for them.

I can't remember if it was posted in this thread or elsewhere, but after their drubbing by Liverpool, there was an Arsenal Fan TV (or whatever it is they call that drivel) interview with a spotty toss funnel (thanks for the loan of the phrase there @doctor stefan Freud ) saying how they should trigger Toby's £25 million release clause in January.

Oh, how I wish someone was there to inform the pizza-faced, swearing-is-fun-and-proves-I'm-a-man-so-I'm-going-to-use-it-in-every-sentence biological waste sample what the chances were of a player trading CL football for EL football. I would love to have seen if it could have penetrated the massive Australopithecene (Oss-trallo-pithy-seen) shelf above the eyes into what we're constrained in calling a brain only because it's grey, mushy and soft and can't be called porridge (because porridge has value).

I would have derived great pleasure in watching the eyes glaze over, the limbs slacken, and the tongue go limp as the primal ooze contained in the specimen's cranium strained to shift processing power away from vital function to information processing.

It could have been very informative too, as it might have provided an opportunity to witness the nobility of the Arsenal fan. How one will often take the role of helper, physically supporting the information-processing specimen, when the latter does lose bodily function control due to the presentation of taxing information such as the reality of a transfer situation, or how good Arsenal actually are... or being asked their name.

Doing so ensures the processor specimen doesn't suffer harm from the loss of motor control which can result in the aforementioned loss of rigour in the limbs which, in turn, can cause the specimen to fall to the ground. In a scenario like that, vestigial tails and the webbing between fingers can suffer damage, so a helper specimen can be a real boon when a processor specimen is 'in refraction'.

However, it should be pointed out that this support isn't purely altruistic - it could, in fact, be a survival technique for the helper specimen as it spares him the pain and distress of having to process information himself. Once information has been processed in the typical Arsenal manner - glacially - the processor's basic motor control returns, sometimes in as short a space of time as four to six hours. However, during this time, it is very vulnerable and so the helper will care for and feed it (often with containers filed with a particular concoction they call "Thpethal Brooooo!").

Once this 'refraction period' is over and the processor has regained motor function, it can impart the (usually wrong) conclusions it has (very slowly) gleaned to the helper monk- er, specimen, through a series of grunts and whistles that many zoologists have stated bears a vague resemblance to human speech.

All-in-all, the Arsenal species is a fascinating animal to study. To quote Shakespeare:

"What a piece of work is Famblud Boy! How ignoble in reason, how finite in brain capacity. In form and moving how stunted and glutinous. In action how like a hippo. In apprehension how like a turd. The fetidity of the world. The paragon of morons".
I saw my name mentioned and Michael-ed your post

Just seen it. The way Salah goes over is rather suspicious. He swipes the air in hilarious fashion. Amazing how Scousers have a go at Kane for Tuesday when he gets clattered, yet the slightest touch sees the high and mighty Salah go flying.

I have no idea why people on here were saying salah was clattered must be secret Scousers?
Tiny tug on his sleeve definite dive again.

from my view and I watched it via a stream Grobb connected with the back of his leg. I'd of been gutted to not get that 1, and thought he was to clumsy and gave him the chance to go down even if he went down to theatrical

Never touched his leg though just tugged his sleeve
You couldn't make my legs fly out from me with a sleeve tug unless it was ripped off lol
He dived but pundits will tell you otherwise as it's them.
They are pretty much being given goals by refs rather than face the wrath of the deluded loonies and there social media campaigns.

It was a penalty, to say otherwise is the type of petty bitter comment you’d expect from the Liverpool supporters. It was clear and we’d be furious not to receive it if that was Kane or Dele.

Also, this talk of wrapping up top four is banal and just the type of hubris which gets punished all too often. There will still be 48 points to play for after today, let’s just take things one match at a time. 2006 and 2012 still hurt.

It's not petty at all
Could that little tug of your sleeve make your legs fly out from your body
No contact was made on him other than that

Also would dele have been given that ?

Pulling of the shirt is classed as a foul so in that sense he did pull his sleve so it's a pen I'm not doubting that
But it was also massively exaggerated by salah so it was also a dive if that makes any sense

Stonewall is a way of saying that it was a late christmas present?
Kevin friend is that you?
I’m no Liverpool apologist, I loathe them, and I think Salah has dived for other penalties, but at the point of this screenshot taken be me Salah is running full speed. What part of the ball is being played? Or do you mean to tell me that this doesn’t show genuine contact, or that the Brighton player would’ve had the timing and control to only lightly tap with his leg, not kick through?

I haven't seen that shot you have put up just watched it and the replays of it on tv it looks like the only physical contact is the sleve tug
They even called it as a pen due to the tug.
If there was contact with the legs they certainly didn't mention it on tv just the tug.

The point I'm trying to make is all the fuss there Muppet fans make about us and they have probably this season's biggest serial over actor but it's never questioned.
Like I said before would dele have got that ?
I'm not so sure he would.

He definitely exaggerated his fall and goes to ground like a tart but it’s a pen. I’d be pissed off if that wasn’t given to us (which it probably wouldn’t have)

I agree with you that the Scousers are hypocrites. My point is that I don't want us to stoop to their level, we must always hold ourselves as better than that filthy club.
