There is no doubt that Arsenal Football Club has the makings of being one of the game's true superpowers. Many of the essential elements are already there; Perhaps most importantly there is the huge international support base which is second only to United's in terms of English clubs.
FormerAC Milan, Arsenal FC, Juventus, FC Internazionale Milano, Manchester City FC and France midfielder Patrick Vieira is the global ambassador for the new Western UnionPASSeducation initiative. The new program will...
Who would you prefer as the new No.2 to Arsene Wenger at the Arsenal? Pat Rice is calling it a
day as the manager's right-hand man and a new assistant will be recruited in the summer.
It is generally accepted that Arsenal fans would prefer a former player, someone with a bond
with the Gunners, as an ideal replacement for the stalwart Rice, who has been at the club â save
for a spell at Watfordâ for 44 years.
Hello there. Finally starting to get back to my daily routine back home after the long trip. A
journey that was worth every single penny spent. The experience will be penned out hopefully in the
next few days and if all goes well, will be up at the Arsenal Collective website.
Prince William proved he's the perfect FA president by losing a penalty shootout to a 13-year-old lad in the Solomon Islands. The young goalkeeper challenged Britain's second-in-line to the throne to beat him from the spot... and William responded as only an Englishman on foreign soil can: with a series of misses.
Here it is folks, Liverpool's new home strip as modelled by Warrior's first 'football brand
ambassador', Craig Bellamy...
A little word on that Bellamy dealio; As mentioned previously, the Welshman has signed on to
become Warrior's first football 'brand ambassador', though the contract will see all of hisÂ
sponsorship fee going directly to the Craig Bellamy Foundation in Sierra Leone.
Sad to hear that Muamba has had to retire from football but based on whats happened to him
healthwise no-one at all can blame him! I think the majority of football fans would have felt
fearful to see Fabrice back on a football pitch so I can't imagine how family or friends would have
felt had he returned as a player.
Tottenham Hotspur legend Ledley King today announced his retirement from football. The incredibly
gifted defender with a long history of knee injuries has decided to hang up his boots and will now
become a club ambassador. There's no doubting how...
The best part about being away from your feeder club (i.e. AS Roma's Bojan) is
the inevitable fact that you become itsÂ Ambassador! When Bojan scored in the 62nd
minute of Roma's 5-2 victory over Novara yesterday, he lifted his shirt to reveal this message :
"All the strength of this goal is for Abi" (Eric Abidal).
It was announced this morning that Geoff Cameron's work permit has been approved and the former
Dynamo defender is now officially a member of Stoke City. Congratulations to Geoff on having the
opportunity to pursue this incredible personal opportunity and we wish him all the success in the
English Premier League.
As I touched on in my article last week: with Robin van Persie surely set to leave Arsenal this
summer, the club is about to face yet another change in captaincy, with the Dutch striker having
only replaced Cesc Fabregas as skipper a year ago.
I suggested Bacary Sagna as a replacement in my last piece (that will not be the focus today),
but whoever gets the armband next will be the fifth different captain we've had since we last won a
Manchester United veteran Paul Scholes has expressed his surprise at the exclusion of David
Beckham from the Team GB squad for the London Olympics but believes that the team remains strong
Scholes' club teammate Ryan Giggs was chosen as one of the team's three over-age players by
manager Stuart Pearce and the 38-year old recently embraced the captain's responsibilities as
Another day, another big date. BigFourZa has been star struck yet again, getting a timely dose

Scouse legend last time around, this time it was our turn to meet Manchester United and Aston Villa
legend Dwight Yorke.
They often say that things will feel better in the morning, but that can't have been the case for
Ashley Young the day after his missed penalty against Italy. With front and back pages across the
nation showcasing the Manchester United forward's wayward spot-kick, his sponsor Lucozade tried to
hush up any public association with [.
Reports in this morning newspaper claim that Peter Schmeichel is coming back to United in the
role of a club official ambassador. He joins the likes of Sir Bobby Charlton, Bryan Robson and Gary
Neville who travel the world promoting Manchester United.
"Schmeichel Back To United" was originally published at The Republik
"Respect who you're playing against, if you don't, for sure you'll lose."

Manchester United star Peter SchmeichelÂ has been appointed as Carlsberg's Global Ambassador for
TweetManchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has threatened to unleash Roy Keane on Manchester
City ambassador Patrick Vieira. Vieira angered Fergie after suggesting that the Premier League
leaders always get refereeing decisions given in their favour this being concomitant to their
current league standing.
TweetManchester City ambassador Patrick Vieira is in the firing line after suggesting that
Manchester United get special treatment from referees sparking angry responses. United defender Rio
Ferdinand was amongst the most vocal challengers to Vieira's comments, which, incidentally, the
former Arsenal and Inter Milan midfielder believes has been taken out of context.
Patrick Vieira launched a bizarre attack on Manchester United last week, claiming we must be
desperate to bring Paul Scholes out of retirement and that we wouldn't have lost our young stars,
like Ravel Morrison, in the past. In just the few months since Scholes returned, he's already
scored more goals than he did last season, and Morrison getting shipped off to a Championship club
where he doesn't get a game after we didn't offer him a new contract is hardly "losing out" on our
The U.S. team and the high school players from Sacred Heart in Tokyo
Today was a day off from training for the U.S. U-20 WNT, following a rhythm the team has been
undertaking for most of the tournament: Game, then the next day is recovery for starters, training
for the reserves, and the next day is off for everyone, followed by the whole team training for a
short period on the day before the game.
The club website has finally announced something that we've been expecting for ages with the
news that Ledley King has called time on his playing career. Spurs have confirmed that he will stay

"Ledley has made a magnificent contribution to this Club as a wonderful player, Captain and
ambassador," said Daniel Levy.
The London 2012 chairman Sebastian Coe has confirmed that David Beckham will have "two very
clear roles" at the Olympic Games. Becks was a key figure in the bid team that secured the Games in
2005 and has been one of the most visible celebrity supporters of it in the years since.
I don't know if you, like me, continued to hold onto some semblance of hope that Didier Drogba
would ink a short-term deal with Chelsea this summer. Sure, the idea may no sense whatsoever as the
end to last season was, well, a perfect ending to a legendary career at the club but that didn't
