It’s been 5 months since Arsenal adopted the en vogue 3-4-2-1 formation, switching to three central defenders for the first time since the manager’s maiden season.

By Jonathan Blaustein I went for a long run yesterday, as it’s one of the few chances I get to let my mind wander. It’s a great feeling, that freedom of mental movement, and it’s hard to come by these days. Most of us are accounted for, at all times, whether we’re working, cooking, Tweeting, …

There was some strange competition on the TV last night. Some thing called the ‘Champions League’. Can’t say I’ve ever heard of it. It’s supposedly a league for champions, but from what I could see many of those teams were not champions at all. What a complete swizz, these people are taking the m...

Good morning. We now have four weeks of football in the Premier League and already we are starting to see some trends emerge as the top two clubs, Manchester Mourinho and Manchester Pep, have started to pull away from the rest of the pack.

Last week it was reported that Arsenal’s chief transfer negotiator, Dick Law, would be leaving the club at the end of the month when his contract expires. From what I understand, this isn’t a case of him being pushed or let go as part of some kind of power-play, but simply because of his desire ...

I'm surprised by the lack of speculation around his future. All the attention is on Sanchez, and Ozil is in a similar contract situation. He's 29 in October, so this should be his last major contract. I think his history with Mourinho could make it a potentially good signing. How many on here wou...
