Arsenal crisis: Magic hat fades as Wenger flounders - originally posted on Soccerlens.com

Shortly after Arsenal lost to Aston Villa at the Emirates on the opening day of this campaign, thanks to some dubious refereeing not for the last time from Anthony Taylor, this very writer filed a piece about the Arsenal boss's shortcomings as a evolutionary and revolutionary manager in 2013 and questioned the Arsenal chief's ability to take Arsenal any further forward.

DiVaio's debate.

James Grossi writes from Toronto for The Shin Guardian

Bare quotes are always dangerous without context.

In what amounted to a vain attempt at researching the actual source of the attributed quotes, only to discover that the Gazzetta Dello Sport website has a pay-wall – though it must be admitted that comprehension would have been a problem anyways – the problem of what to make of snippets from a player or manager who has been asked for their view on MLS has reared its head again.
