Cole - Plenty of medals since 2006 (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Ashley Cole is currently in the news for joining a long line of England penalty shoot-out failures, but like him or loathe him, only the most churlish of fans would deny he is a highly talented defender who has shown remarkable consistency over a very successful career.

Study: Cognitive Abilities Equate To Success, Goals Scored

Though executive functions do not equate to simple intelligence, for the purposes of not caring to delve into the neurosciences, we can think that Lionel Messi is the second coming of Goethe or Newton.

Which also means he can do long division, the true barometer of high intelligence.

On the list of things which science did not need to devote its time and resources is the relationship between goals scored by and the success of footballers and executive functions.

Is change harmful?

Arsenal Insider at related • 0 views

There is no doubt that Arsenal have suffered the loss some of significant players over the last few seasons but that is a fact of life in modern day football; players come and players move on and they move on for a variety of reasons, some for money, some for ambition, some for the love of the club they were brought up in and some are pushed.

Emmanuel Frimpong has been charged by the FA with improper conduct following a comment he made on Twitter.

This would be shocking if it were the first transgression by a sports personality on a social media site. It's pointless listing them all, but making statements in poor taste is quite commonplace among celebrities with an online presence.

How will RVP decision affect Arsenal’s stance on Walcott?

When a football player remains silent for weeks or even months on end about his future at a specific football club, you know there's a good chance he's not quite happy with his situation. When Robin van Persie announced he wasn't going to re-sign with Arsenal it shouldn't have surprised anybody.

Post London 2012, far too much has been written about the great Olympic spirit on show and how it shows up the greed and downright common behaviour of the Premier League's football players. This lazy comparison spewed out by writers who, more than likely, won't cover (or even feign interest in) another rowing or taekwando event for another four years, totally missed the point about the tribal (and bloody popular) nature of football in comparison to the totally different Olympic atmosphere and its plethora of minority sports.

Spurs are interviewing for a manager. It's hardly a level playing field not as if the vacancy has been advertised down at the Job Centre. We'll find out soon enough, next week in all probability but in the meantime we are left to consider the absurdity of the process upon which the short, medium and possibly long-term future of our club depends.

It's going to be another 26 days before some form of competitive football will be played. All right, fine. There's one more this weekend and after that, it's still another 21 days before the start of the European Championships. If I haven't state it enough, I'll state it again. I hate Spurs but the prospect of them playing in the Champions League qualifiers is not worse than the prospect of John Terry and Frank Lampard lifting the big ears trophy.

Arsène, its time to say goodbye

These are words I never thought I would utter, if we qualify against all odds for the Champions League again this year I would like to see Arsène Wenger resign as Arsenal manager.

Those who know me, will think I have gone stark raving mad. This wish has nothing to do with whether I think he can take the team further, if he is too old, that he doesn't want to spend money or any of the other criticisms aimed at our manager.

English Lions starting to roar for Arsenal

Arsenal Insider at related • 2 views

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger made history back in February of 2005 when he became the first English Premier League manager to field a starting 11 that didn't include one English player. The reason for this appears to be necessitated by injuries to some of his top players at the time such as Sol Campbell, Justin Hoyte, and Ashley Cole.
