"You've got to remember that football was in a bit of a crisis at that time. We weren't that long after Hillsborough, and other hooligan-related issues as well. It was very much a difficult time for the game generally."
 

Context is everything, I’m pretty sure he means we had the Hillsborough disaster and other issues, like hooliganism…

I'd say the police were in a bit of a crisis at the time, which had it's impact on the average football fan's ability to enjoy the match in safety. In truth the country was in crisis which effected the average person's ability to enjoy life.

Of course, I'm sure he wasn't asked in a way that would inspire such an answer. But yeah. 

However, whilst I'm not too concerned about it, it does hint at the bigger picture of media representatives sticking to a narrative.

Meh. Nowt will change.

Arsenal will be an interesting watch this season, they’re desperately trying to make top 4 but I can’t see it. I guess a huge amount of their success hangs on how well Jesus does for them

Surprised to see Chelsea fans being so pessimistic. They landed on their feet on the Abramovich issue and the new owners are splashing the cash.

There signings are so scattergun though, there doesn't seem to be any sort of plan, it's like the owners are playing football manager, they're just targeting random players for obscene money. Cucurella for instance, I highly doubt they we're after him until City turned there nose up at Brighton's ridiculous valuation, but its almost like Chelsea went "City where in for him he must be good, pay whatever they want to get him".

The Ringer is now writing about Newcastle: Newcastle United’s Saudi Ownership Prompts Debate Across Premier League

 

Article is okay...it's not great by any stretch of the imagination. I think it comes from being a fan, but it glosses over a lot of how fans feel like the club is back and their own again.

 

Also this section is trash: "The version of Newcastle that I was watching represented the very last embers of the club before it became a Saudi state project. When it was still … a club. Years from now, will anyone in Newcastle miss these days, when their club was elementally flawed and the fans still filled St. James’ Park? When Newcastle were a regular team, one that reflected the indignities of life in a metaphorical way and left its fans largely despondent and bereft in all sorts of arguably healthy ways?"

Took a peek at their forum this week and they seemed to hate every attacking player outside of Mount. Also questioning Tuchel's approach and if it's his fault their offensive players have failed to deliver. Wasn't expecting even Havertz to get so much shite.
