Mahrez won’t be a good Arsenal buy

By | June 13th, 2017|0 Comments

By Tom Hawley In my personal opinion, Riyadh Mahrez is a one-season wonder. Quite why so many clubs want to buy him is beyond me, so when I heard Arsene Wenger waxing lyrically about the winger’s talents, I was more than a bit surprised. If I were Leicester manager, Craig Shakespeare, I would cash in on Mahrez right now. The winger signed a new deal [...]

In these days of hugely inflated transfer fees and salaries to match, should football clubs ever say enough? After all, if the TV money is coming why can't clubs spend it on what the want to?

If Arsenal appoint a DOF, Wenger will be off!

By | May 30th, 2017|0 Comments

Stop press: By the time I managed to upload, news had broken that Wenger had signed a 2-year deal. We haven't got long to wait. By tomorrow, we should know Wenger's fate at Arsenal. It feels like a foregone conclusion: a contract extension. However, there are some potential flies in the ointment that could stop Wenger continuing at the helm. Apparently, one of the biggest [...]
