Steve Bould seems to be in charge of Arsenal at the minute, at least when it comes to facing the media. Hopefully Arsene Wenger is off somewhere sorting out a big name signing, but I may be slightly optimistic. Anyway, Bould has taken the chance to lavish praise on one of Arsenal's most maligned players of the season, Aaron Ramsey.
Arsene Wenger has seen his Arsenal team lose to both Manchester City and Chelsea in the last two weeks, and now admits that the Top Three are now pulling away from the chasing pack, but remembering last years end-of-season rally, he is hopeful that the Gunners can overtake their Archrivals Tottenham for Fourth Place.
LIVERPOOL, England Liverpool forward Ryan Babel has completed his move to Hoffenheim after signing
a two-and-a-half-year contract, according to the German club. The Reds accepted a fee for the

final of the FA Youth Cup.
This was a disappointing game for Liverpool; disappointing not because of the nature of the defeat
or the name of the opponents but because of the way that the team played.
If Toronto F.C. were a television series it would have a difficult time convincing viewers that it was a sports comedy/drama. Most observers would figure it was science fiction, if only because characters descend, spin for a while and then vanish.
MANCHESTER, England Â â€” A globe-trotting comic book character has left officials at Greek
football club Aris with faces as red as his famous sweater after popping up in a spoof photo in a
