Why do people subconsciously accept this, over aggressive tackles, shirt pulling and so on but get offended when a player who has been on the receiving end of three successive fouls decides to tell the referee to do his job and referee the game by the rule book? What is the betting that if Frank Lampard for example approached the referee and said something along the lines of 'For Fakk sake ref, you gonna book him or what? that's the third fakking time in a row I've been kicked like', what is the betting that 90% of anti imaginary card wavers would be totally fine with it. It is essentially the same thing, one using fakk, the other using physical actions. Maybe the latter is not confident enough to explain to the referee his grievances, so this simple and to the point gesture tells the

Anyway on to the other news of the day, firstly we have confirmed the signing of 17 year old Krystian Bielik from Legia Warsaw for £2.4m. Arsène said he will be part of the first team squad but that doesn't necessarily mean he will play in the first team this season. Players like Maitland-Niles have been part of the first team but apart from a few minutes we have seen nothing of the lad. I suspect being part of the first team means he will be training, eating and learning with the 1st team set up as I am sure a few other youngsters are at present

There has been constant talk of Cavani to Arsenal, mainly from Twitter which is pretty routine at this time of year. This is my take on Cavani and Arsène Wenger. I believe that Arsène wanted to buy him before he moved to PSG. I remember Arsène talking about the advantage French teams had with their wealth in the market soon after they bought him. He seemed a little agitated. Can't find that interview for the life of me. That was last summer when we needed a centre forward and we bought Mesut Özil. I think Cavani would be extremely difficult to buy in January plus his wages would more than likely be way more than we would be willing to pay, especially given the size of the transfer fee. So basically I reckon Arsène would like to have him at Arsenal but it won't happen. Whether he has his eyes on someone else, I don't know. Maybe I am barking up the wrong tree and he believes what he has is enough. Maybe Giroud, Welbeck and Alexis is enough number wise to play centrally

I don't know if there is room for this or if it feasible or not but I'd be well up for a new position being opened up for Thierry as a finishing coach or something like that. Imagine Henry taking the likes of Welbeck, Walcott, Chamberlain, Giroud, Podol... never mind, Campbell and co and guiding them through the different situations they can find themselves in and what worked for him. Showing them footage of the Manchester United first half and making them correct the wrongs. That would be great because we know he has plenty of experience as a finisher and is a great role model for players to look up to. The rest if pretty much unknown apart from the fact that Thierry Henry thinks a lot about football according to Arsene Wenger

That was Jack Wilshere's 4th man of the match award in a row for his country which in itself is pretty amazing. Clearly the level of opposition has not been very high, in fact most of the teams have been below average so his new deep role still needs a proper going over by quality opposition. I would like to see  game where England have little of the ball so Jack's concentration can be judged as well as

    So let me stop reminiscing of days gone by and let me focus on our Welsh wonder. Let me start off by saying that I think it is quite obvious that Aaron Ramsey is better in central midfield. His partnership with Mesut Özil, his running from deep and his underrated ball winning ability makes him a ...Read more
