    eFests is the best argument against eFests.

    Why don't they let this many people in any more?

    What happened to Green Day being Pyramid headliners?

    Probably Alderweireld and some full backs. They're strongly linked with Alex Sandro from Juve. Maybe another CM to play with Matic and Pogba.

    Arteta as manager and a 50m budget by the sounds of it. No chance they're moving up from 6th next season. Can see Ramsey leaving this Summer, he's got one year left on his contract and his words on Arteta the other week sounded like he didn't think he was ready to manage Arsenal. Tiny budget and presumably little control over recruitment with Mislintat there. Don't see why he'd want to take the job at all. His contract is up next Summer and he'll surely get better offers than the Arsenal job then; maybe even United if Jose has his typical 3rd season at a club. Even if he were to leave now, the Chelsea job would surely be more attractive. Only benefit to the Arsenal job is he'd have greater job security, but for someone with his reputation that probably wouldn't matter; if he was sacked at Chelsea in a couple of years he'd walk into another top job. Plus they're a worse team than Juve, of course.

    That guy in the middle's tattoo makes absolutely no sense on its own ffs. When people ask to see it do you reckon he refuses to until his mates are with him to complete the sentence? Whopper.

    Be naff but I still think they could have been given a shot.

    A few years of leftfield headliners and less people watching on TV will certainly see the number of people trying for tickets fall. I do somewhat agree with what you're saying though and think they can afford to have at least one risky booking each year. In 2015 Florence and the Machine should have been bumped up over booking The Who (if possible); in 2016 Foals should have headlined over Muse or Coldplay; in 2017 The xx could have headlined but they did get 3 headliners that you couldn't really argue with so I'll give them that. I think Stormzy next year would be a perfect choice for this if he has a new album out by then. Might not be quite what you mean by leftfield but I think they should lean more this way than they currently do.

    I didn't say it was good. You asked in what sense was it a better booking than Green Day. They were touring a shit album, but would Glasto have known that when they booked them? It came out the month of the festival. In 2009 Kasabian subbed Glasto and I'm pretty sure their first major headline slot was R&L in 2012. Glasto was on a fallow year then so had to wait until their next tour. Maybe 2009 would have been fine, I don't remember exactly how big they were then, but that doesn't change the fact that it was an obvious booking in 2014 that couldn't really be argued. They were one of the biggest current bands in the UK at the time who'd headlined everywhere except Glasto, and they were certainly still relevant in 2014. The relevancy argument does agree to Muse. They were an awful booking in 2016 and I'd rather have seen Foals given the slot. However Muse are pretty much a house band for them now which is probably why they were booked again in 2016, and the fact they're British may have helped. I think they're a bit more relevant than Green Day, anyway.

    Green Day

    Quite a lot I think. He also spends more than 50% of the gig screaming "WHEYYYYYYYYYYOOHHHHHHHH" at the crowd. Completely forgot about that until now. Ugh.
