It’s time for Cesc Fabregas to step out, and his soon to be former colleagues to step up.

There is inherent risk in losing any ‘star’ player, especially one of Cesc Fabregas’ exceptional quality. For the past 5 years he has made the most assists of any player in any of the top 5 European leagues. Given his comparatively reduced playing time, through a combination of injuries and Arsenal’s poor record in the latter stages of certain competitions, that is a truly impressive…

The striking conundrum at the top of the table

The striking conundrum at the top of the table

 

Each team at the top of the Barclays premier league has a world class forward line but with that world class tag each of them carries unnecessary baggage with them. With the pre season in full flow each of them will have set specific goals for the new season.…

Kenny Miller

Hi, Greetings from Istanbul, I have just read that Cardiff City have signed Kenny Miller from Turkish club Bursaspor. I can only ask one question which is, Do Cardiff know what they are doing? Because on the evidence of his games in Turkey, Kenny certainly struggled.

 

In fact for such a renowned and prolific striker in the Scottish Premier League to go to Bursaspor and not be able to hit a barn door from 30 paces in such a short space of time is remarkable. I watched him when…

The English National Team: baseless optimism and silly hats pre-match...

1 opinion is conjecture, 2 moves us toward a consensus. Firstly Paul Scholes, in a tellingly un-Paul Scholes manner, delved into the recesses of his mind to confront the issues surrounding his departure from International football. This was cathartic promotion, garnering headlines and coverage for his upcoming testimonial. Secondly Gary Neville, who just likes to talk, no excuse necessary, chose to continue his…

The NEW SEASON

Hi Everyone,

Some really nice transfers have & will take place before we start (which for me will be the HARDEST SEASON in years)you will have your so called big 4.(UND,Chelsea,Arsenal,City) but?

Take a look at the way the Black cats have strenthened their team.

Spurs (if they hold Mordric & Bale) are in there with a chance.

Liverpool are looking like a team from 20 years ago.

 

So what are your thoughts ?

Where did the protest go? Manchester United and The Green and Gold

There’s an interesting concept that suggests, with the advent of Facebook, that protesting has been watered down into nothing more than a branded activity for those (“the young”) that should actually be chaining themselves to the forecourt of their nearest BP. Rather than the aforementioned chaining, people are now simply joining a Facebook group that matches up with their chosen issue, and that’s as far as it…

Worried about likely Arsenal departures

WTF is going on at Arsenal? Instead of the high quality additions such as Juan Mata, Eden Hazard, Pepe Reina, Gary Cahill that we were expecting to see in order to replace the disappointing class of Wenger's Wunderkids, we are seeing Nasri, Fabregas & Clichy leaving and a familiar charade of unknown 20 year olds mooted as replacements. As much as I have been a flag holder of the "In Wenger we trust" brigade for the last 6 years, I am pretty close to turning into a Wenger hater. Starting…
