Looks like all isn't well at The Emirates :( But this is a good thing, now that RVP has said what he has said, people are finally pointing the blame to the board and not Wenger which I have been claiming for years. He only ever does what he is told and doesn't rock the boat which is why he doesn't say anything about it.

Even better is now our mega money man Usmanov is starting to speak up and express how unhappy he and Moshiri (other shareholder) are about what went on in that meeting and what RVP has said. Arsenal fans want him on the board, but the board doesn't want him there, because he wants cups more than balanced books and Stan Kroenke continues to do absolutely nothing with his majority share. Not even a bit of re-investment into the team. Looks like a tug of war situation is incoming.

As a  LFC supporter I feel sorry for Arsenal, we've been there with Hicks and Gillet so know how it feels to see your beloved club get trashed. I hope it gets sorted soon in the best way possible for AFC and the players/supporters.

It's a real shame when people come into clubs with no real interest in the teams ambitions and are only interested in their own financial gain. Not nice at all. Then the situation ends up being that the only solution is to have the fans turn on their own club until things are changed.

I read the transcript of his police interview on Sky News app last night.  He reckons that Anton said something on the lines of "you calling me a Black see you next ...(Wednesday) " and Terry simply repeated it in a question sort of way, and this is what the camera picked up.

 

Makes a good case.

 

True or not, well the court says so, I guess that's all that matters for now.

I doubt the £2500 would've had a huge impact on his life anyway. I doubt it would've affected his career either.

Any fine was meaningless, it is the impact that the verdict has upon his career. If he was found guilty, then it would have put his England, and maybe Chelsea career into doubt. 

 

(PS: Is this changing to a general football thread or what?)

Do you think they would've done the right thing? I don't personally. Definitely not at club level.

Looks like we are very close to signing Nick Proschwitz, who was the top scorer in the German 2nd division last season. Steve Bruce said the fee is "north of £2m".

Great to see a signing like this, hopefully he will continue his great goalscoring record.

We signed Proschwitz for £2.6m.

 

Now we have signed Abdoulaye Faye, as well as Sone Aluko from Rangers on a free. 

 

That Aluko kid looks an amazing capture.

Liverpool fans.... your club just activated the release clause in Joe Allens contract. They launched a £15,000,0000 bid last night, Joe is going to speak to Michael Laudrup today before deciding on talking to Liverpool.

^^ Crazy money if you ask me. One good season shouldn't equal that amount of money. Still hats off to Swansea if they get it.

Allen is worth the money going by the value of others in the Premier League, he has been doing this in the Championship (better even given the lower quality) since he was broke into the squad from our Youth Academy.

The Liverpool players will just need to put their trust in him because as far as technical ability is concerned he is superior to anyone they have at the moment, he is a better passer than Gerrard but unlike the scouser he is not an attacking midfielder.

Anywho footie season is almost amongst us.  Charity sheild kicks things off don't it?

Posting purely for the sake of renaming the subject of the GD Thread as this is no longer the BPL thread.

 

Looking forward to the community shield tomorrow. Should be interesting. I expect City to win.
