For a small island nation, Britain has had a lot of influence in the world but none so felt as the introduction of Britain's favourite pastime - Football. Association Football is the world's biggest sport and is still growing in popularity in ever corner of the world. Despite the history of invention and an ongoing position of influence in the game British football failed to have a single player in the FIFA World XI in 2015 and no representatives from the top league either. Why does the home of football consistently fail to produce players that not only garner international acclaim but also can advance a British national team to a trophy? Is it because of the large amounts of foreign imports playing in every division, especially the Premier League? It is grassroots coaching or are the national and club managers to blame?Add a comment

Mikel Arteta took the Arsenal captain's armband from Thomas Vermaelen after being an ever present in the Arsenal midfield and deputising for the Belgian as Arsenal's Vice-captain. Now aged 33, with 5 seasons with Arsenal and 2 FA Cup titles to his name, and his contract due to expire in the summer he is being painted as dead wood by some fans and a worthy squad addition as player-coach by others. So what next for our club captain?Add a comment
A one, a two, a one, two, three, four… [The intro abruptly starts]
What is this new Arsenal that we see right now? It seems to me like a coalescing of both Wenger eras, by which I mean the steely ‘Invincible’ period of the past, and the more current era of technicality across the pitch. It's almost comparable to musical clash between heavy metal vs. Mozart; a loud thumping sound, with an underlying smooth melody that makes a hostage of your senses, in some ‘Stockholm Syndrome’ kind of way.Add a comment
19 years ago, back in 1996, Arsène Wenger was appointed manager of Arsenal. His anniversary with Arsenal was a day of reflection for many fans so I thought I'd write a piece about what I think of our season so far. I've managed to keep my patience so far… well at least I had until Olympiakos. We are a fabulous bunch of losers, aren't we? Perhaps what everybody thinks is actually the truth. Or maybe not, maybe we're just unlucky.Add a comment
