It is not very often that you see Arsene Wenger get angry, but in Arsenal pre-match press conference this morning he got very animated when talking about why the season is starting one week early to try and ease the congestion at Xmas….
The enigma of Luis Suarez? by AlexTheGooner
After the announcement by FIFA today regarding the Luis Suarez biting incident, with Giorgio Chiellini, is that Luis Suarez is to be banned from playing football and attending football matches for four months.
One thing that Arsenal can look forward to, for the next year or at least, is that FC Barcelona will not be able to poach any more of our players.

Football, and sport in general. is having a hard time at the minute. With doping scandals and match fixing involving betting syndicates, the integrity of sport is under attack. The unpredictability of sport is what gives it such great appeal, and the Arsenal manager thinks that it is up to the governing bodies to do everything they can to to protect this. It seems, however, that Uefa are missing a trick and are in danger of letting the publis think they are a bit soft on cheats.
