Remember the climax of the last Premier League season, way back in May? This Arsenal fan does. He remembers that Spurs needed his side to drop points at Newcastle in order to stand any chance of Champions League qualification.

I've had a seriously topical and brilliant idea, and it concerns the transfer window.

While there has been talk about it being open too long, there are also specific concerns over certain aspects of the system, chief among these is the influence of Agents.

Hello all. I am back from the wilderness and from a very pleasant and memorable trip. Yellowstone is just a breathtaking place in so many ways and we were very lucky with the weather as well. Mendocino too was great fun as we went there with a close friend and his family. Don't know how but I managed to pick up a flu bug soon after returning and that's kept me down for the last couple of days.

2011/12: The Year of the Cat

Nothing like a bit of timely self-aggrandisation, eh? As part of their celebratory '20 Seasons' awards push, The Premier League have conveniently seen the 2011/12 season (i.e, the current campaign about to come to it's climax at the weekend) voted as the top flight's greatest ever season despite it not even featuring on the original shortlist.

"You can have the top stars to bring the attention, you can have the best stadium, you can have the best facilities, you can have the most beautiful project in terms of marketing and all this kind of thing. But if you don't win, all the work these people are doing is forgotten."

There is war, there is peace, and there are things in between that define the nuance of a man's character.

Gervinho: The New Thierry Henry

One of the commonest complaints levelled at Arsene Wenger by his critics is that he hangs on to sub-standard players for too long.

He is accused of having ‘favourites' and of continuing to select them long after we supporters have decided that they are not up to it.

‘Fawlty' Manuel Almunia, ‘Sideways' Den Denilson and Emmanuel "the Grinning Kamikaze" Eboue all spring to mind.

After back-to-back defeats against Blackburn and Newcastle to end 2011 and open 2012, there were many who doubted that Manchester United would be able to successfully defend their Premier League crown. At that time, though only three points separated United and City at the top, many United supporters would've been content with a three-point lead going into the pivotal late-season derby at the Etihad Stadium.

Unlike other games where the implications take time to sink in, losing at Wembley has its particular horrors. As the infernal shuffle towards Wembley Park tube grinds on, there's nowhere to go. Nothing to do except look at the back of the head of the person who will be in front of you for the next half an hour (if you're lucky) and absorb the burden of defeat.

Thankfully, we are in the sickly sweet methadone arms of Euro 2012. I'm no huge fan of international football, but I have to admit I'm really enjoying the fare that has been on offer so far. It's been nice to watch competitive football with a fair amount of chin stroking detachment. It's particularly a welcome relief following hot on the heels of the climax of the league season.

The pass sliced a clinical arc through the hapless defence. The ruthless beauty of the surgeon's art won the game.

If I could, I would. The dreams of a paunchy jowled man who is fighting off the strictures of middle-age are little different from those of an equally podgy fresh-faced only child pestering his hard-working parents to schlepp him across London to see a meshugenah game of football.

Brighton's Liam Bridcutt was on the Reds score sheet twice, scoring in the 44th minute and the 71st minute to cap off a horrible outing for the championship side.

Paul Scholes’ return: It’s good to act desperately, sometimes

It appeared to us an act of desperation – the very last resort, Plan B (or, more appropriately, Plan Z), or any well-worn cliché – and it, well, was. For Manchester United, bringing back Paul Scholes seemed a step back. Truth is, it's gone better than we'd envisaged back then, ever since it was revealed ahead of the FA Cup 3rd round tie against Manchester City back in January.
