    World Cup Squad Announcement

    That time has finally arrived where in a couple of hours we will find out who is going and who isn’t. It appears that Hart and Wilshere will miss out according to reports. I won’t lose any sleep over either of those two missing out. I really hope Southgate takes a gamble and takes Sessegnon.

    Jack Wilshere: Arsenal & England midfielder suffers hairline fracture

    Poor old Jack Wilshere appears to be one of those players who just can't avoid injury. It just seems to follow him around. I wonder if he is very unlucky, or do Arsenal's medics and coaching staff have to accept some of the blame and pain? http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/33801783

  4. England vs Poland

    Small fixture tonight. Can't see many if any changes to the starting line-up. Wilshere might be the only change, but only one he could replace would be Lampard.

    Footballers Smoking?

    I read an article on the Sky Sports News app about Wenger is not happy about Jack Wilshere seen smoking on a night out after the Napoli game. Personally if I was a professional footballer earning all that money and needing to be fit beyond belief I would never even consider smoking. I know a...

    England Squad

    Glad to see Osman has finally been given a chance, at 31 !! Massivley underated. Wilshere doesn't derserve his place IMO, nor does Glen Johnson. The defence looks weak IMO but apart from that a very attack minded squad, that's presumably gonna be asked to defend for 90 minutes. Still better...

    If England were to replicate Spain.....

    .....which of our players most resemble their Spanish counterparts in style and the way they play the game in a 4-6-0 or 4-3-3: Spain Casillas Arbeloa Sergio Ramos Pique Jordi Alba Xavi Busquets Xabi...
  8. Joey Barton

    What does everyone think of Barton being allowed to go on a free? Personally I hope he doesn't find another club. He is a TERRIBLE role model and is very arrogant with his twitter rantings, some saying how he is the best English midfielder. I would choose Wilshere, Lampard or Gerrard anyday...
  9. Capello's squad for Montenegro match

    Ben Foster (Birmingham City), Robert Green (West Ham United), Joe Hart (Manchester City) Ashley Cole (Chelsea), Phil Jagielka (Everton), Glen Johnson (Liverpool), Rio Ferdinand (Manchester United), Joleon Lescott (Manchester City), John Terry (Chelsea), Stephen Warnock (Aston Villa) Gareth...

    Titus Astonished Us

    Every now and then, in a pressbox crammed with bitter, cynical old journalists, there is a frisson of excitement. Something wonderful ripples up and down the rows of greying, over-weight hacks, a buzz to make them believe in magic again. Usually its source is a young starlet like Jack Wilshere...

    Arsenal Still Not Very Good

    Arsenal are the architects of their own problems sometimes. Their failure to secure top spot in Group G can be attributed directly to their inability to beat a woeful Fenerbahce side at The Emirates earlier in the campaign. That traditional tale of misplaced opportunities and wasted dominance...

    Nervous Gunners Slip Through

    Cesc Fabregas is the youngest Arsenal captain since Tony Adams and, appropriately enough, the new era began much like the old one. The Gunners were tentative and unsure of themselves, but recovered their composure to sneak a victory. One nil to the Arsenal? Meet the new boss, same as the old...

    The Kids Are More Than Alright

    Arsene Wenger stared down his inquisitor and smiled. Just half an hour after his young Arsenal side had demolished Sheffield United by six goals, the old quote, "You can't win anything with kids," had been offered up to him. "These players," he said levellely, "do not play like kids." They...
