FA Cup Final

Post by Darlo_Pete » Sun May 28, 2017 4:55 am

I have to say it was one of the most enjoyable games I've seen on TV for some time. Great end to end action and Arsenal deserved a great win. Looks like Wenger will be around for a few more years, as can't see him quitting now.

You do know his contract is up - so it isn't his decision to quit.

But he has been offered a new 2 year contract, so in effect it would be like quitting if he didn't take up that offer.

You do know he was offered the 2 year deal weeks back.

You keep trying to be sarcastic with people. It's not reflecting well on you.

Wenger signs a new 2 year contract, great news in my opinion.

Yep it was a blatant dive, trying to get a penalty, good spot by the referee. Although he wasn't so hot on the first Arsenal goal.

To be fair that was only a rumour reported, whilst the 2 years was on the table it can't have been ready to sign. The 2 year contract can only have been produced to be signed yesterday despite them saying it wouldn't be until tomorrow that the board would meet.

Thought the first goal was an interesting one. AR shouldn't have flagged given they could talk but at the same time the initial reaction from the commentators wasn't really over the handball that only really came from the studio pundits. I knew a few others thought it was a great decision and thought the ball came from too close a distance to be handball.

The strange one is that once again when these contentious decisions happen the response on social media is that video referee will resolve these instances. I really think people are expecting to much of a VAR there is way way too much grey in football.

Some people thought that the offside should have still been given because Ramsey's proximity to the ball would have impacted on the keeper. How does a VAR resolve that debate?

By allowing someone to look at the incident a number of times in slow motion.

My opinion (after watching the incident a number of times in slow motion) is that Ramsey did interfere with play.
Mr Singh said this " I'm not expecting to get back any of the money I've already put in, I'm prepared to write it off for the future of the club. I'm not hanging in to make any kind of financial gain in the short or long term - if someone was prepared to come in and take the club off my hands, I'd be more than willing to discuss it"

Your opinion. Is that not the challenge it still doesn't remove the fact that these things aren't black and white.

My opinion stands that it was not offside. I am trying to find out what the panel of coaches / ex-players and managers collectively decided.

Wasn't a rumour. The Arsenal board have known for weeks, maybe months they wanted Wenger to stay. Numerous respected journalists say this.

Given Wenger's divisiveness among fans, finding the right time was a PR exercise. You don't give a new deal to a manager on a poor run.

And how do you know "it can't have been ready to sign"? Got close contacts in the Arsenal boardroom have you?

If you know the deal is on the table and choose not to sign it, that's walking away - also known as "quitting."

Which is why your sarcastic response to Pete was uncalled for.

Been told that the official review panel decided it was the right decision - not offside.

Maybe - can't really be bothered to argue the toss over it. Does not re-signing at the end of a fixed term contract always constitute quitting. I don't think that the various stupidly high day rate contractors I have come across believe they have quit because they have moved on at the end of their contract regardless of being offered an extension.

Ultimately until the contract was signed it wasn't entirely in Wenger's hands. If they hadn't won the FA Cup, and Tuchel has left Dortmund a week earlier there may have had a different outcome.

What on earth are you wittering on about you thick cretin?

Wenger was offered a new deal weeks back. The board wanted him to stay. Therefore if he walked away, he'd be quitting.

It's not difficult.

Talk about not being able to admit you were wrong.

Ah yes. The classic gramps method of debate.

Walking away from a fixed term contract is not quitting. Ultimately if Wenger did nothing then the contract elapses he is no longer Arsenal manager how can you "quit" by taking no action?

Regardless my main point was until he signed he was out of contract and until Tuesday the offer on the table could have been revoked, which has they not won the FA Cup may have been.

At the point of writing he was not contracted for the future, so it was not entirely in Arsene Wenger's hands to determine whether or not he stayed at Arsenal or not.

So much for this:

Now we're about to get three pages of your speculative made-up waffle, all because you can't accept you were wrong. For further evidence, I reference the thread where you refused to accept there wasn't an actual place called Fylde.

How thick are you? There was an offer on the table! He was under employment and they wanted him to stay on. He wouldn't be walking away from the elapsed contract, he'd be walking away from the new one. I find it embarrassing I have to point this out.

Another obvious point you've missed. Making a decision not to take up the offer is not "taking no action." It's precisely the opposite.

The offer was on the table, the board wanted him, so walking away would have been quitting.

More cretinous thickness from you.

For this point to hold any water, there has to be the suggestion the board had changed their mind and wanted to withdraw the offer. Find me any suggestion or evidence that the board were going to do that. Otherwise your point is irrelevant.

You're trying to argue from a simplistic, one size fits all point of view, without any context for the Arsenal situation.

You can't just ignore all the context because it doesn't fit with your point. The context of the situation demonstrates how incorrect you are.

Everyone can copy what someone else says and say "that is thick" and they say something else. It becomes so much of a battle to actually get to the point you are making as you have to strip out anything that is just a personal remark.

I'll leave with one final point. A company offers me a role tomorrow, contract on the table and I decline it have I quit?

This is my point about context. You're ignoring it all because it doesn't fit your argument.

That hypothetical question you posed is entirely irrelevant to the argument we're having over Wenger. He's been at Arsenal 20 years and they wanted him to stay. This is the context you need to include in your hypothetical question.

If you'd been working for 20 years at the same company, who wanted you stay, but decided to leave, yes that would be quitting.

You're either deliberately misinterpreting the point because you refuse to accept being wrong.

Or you genuinely don't understand the argument. I suspect it's the former, but either way, both stand points are completely devoid of any intelligence.

That's why I'm calling you thick. Clearly it upsets you but you need to improve your arguments.

I also love your attempt to censor my posts above. You've not just removed any personal remarks, but also anything that's remotely critical of your argument. It demonstrates a weakness - that you get upset at criticism of your argument.
