Arsenal vs Chelsea FA Community Shield


#21

Where is it defined as that?


#22

Everywhere. The FA changed their rules regarding pre season matches and suspensions in 2009. It covers all “non-competitive” pre-season fixtures - that includes the Community Shield.


#23

Everywhere being the daily mail and the metro?

Will happily align my opinion to the facts, if you can provide a credible source stating its non competative.


#24

Fuck Chelsea! Beat them in any case :wink:


#25

Think there was a time where it was a competitive game.


#26

The reason given for Moses and Koscielny being able to play in this is because it is essentially a pre season friendly.

But hey, you’re definitely right. A “cup” game that allows 6 subs, which bypasses extra time in the event of a draw, where suspensions don’t count and red cards have no further consequence is most definitely a competitive match :+1:


#27

I’m asking for a source and telling you i will change my view if you can provide it.

What more can I do?


#28

It’s never a friendly v Chelsea. Trophy isn’t attractive and looks like a 50p coin but it still counts. 2-0 for us


#29

I missed your predictions :wink:


#30

A solid effort @GunnerGirl. However the prediction king, LondresTopo, used to weigh in on potential matchday attendances.

Time to take over, me thinks.


#31

We’re gonna lose. But it doesn’t matter.


#32

Take that shit elsewhere Aussie.


#33

No.


#34

Stop it @Oliver. You are becoming a parody of yourself.


#35

@Kaner= Wenger
@Oliver= Gazidis
@GunnerGirl= Kroenke
@Arsenal4thetreble= Walcott

This 4 users are the hardest Wenger and Walcott fans on this board :xhaka:


#36

I’m Wenger out you tit.


#37

Lmao I think he accidentally is correct, cause isn’t Gazidis low key WOB??


#38

I remember you being a great Wenger defender. My mistake :wink:


#39

we’re at Wembley so we will win , it’s the least important trophy out of all the ones up for grabs in a season but it still counts in our achievements, so I would like to win it

Don’t get me wrong, love him as a manager and will always follow his career, should it continue. However I don’t think he should manage us, and haven’t really done for the best past of a year now.
