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. And not only that, the La Liga champions will also not be able to compete with Arsenal for potential new signings while their 14 month ban is in operation.
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.
Calling all TRUE Gooners
Quite a bit of time has passed since the last article I wrote, and I apologize to those who didn’t mind reading them. To be honest, I stopped posting because it was getting nauseating reading the ever increasing influx of mutinous, sabotaging articles and comments. JustArsenal has become more like JustSlattingArsenal instead of JustSupportingArsenal; and this isn’t a reflection on admin (because he promotes freedom of speech for all points of view), but shows how the anti-intellectual / misinformed movement within the Arsenal Fan base has infectiously grown.
The Arsenal right back Carl Jenkinson has pledged his international career to England, despite having appeared for Finland at under 19 and under 21 levels. He is waiting for FIFA clearance, but he could have a long wait if the case of Emmanuel Frimpong is anything to go by.
Liverpool and Uruguay striker Luis Suarez is doing brilliantly, if his intention is to alienate people and make as many enemies as possible that is. Arsenal and France defender Laurent Koscielny has become the latest person to join the LSFC (Luis Suarez Fan Club) after he was asked about his favourite and least favourite players by the French newspaper, L’Equipe.
