Bear with me... this is, indeed, a Post about the current Arsenal team (it will get there eventually).

Way back in the early 1990s an ex Arsenal lad who had moved to pastures new was tearing up the Premier League, scoring goals for fun.

I refer to one Andrew Cole, who had two great seasons at Newcastle from 1993 to 1995.

Premier League Champions Chelsea were humiliated by a Gary Waddock bossed Wycombe Wanderers on Friday 5-1.

Chelsea fielded 7 players from their winning F.A Youth team from last year but the combination of Youth and second stringers wasn't enough to stop a rampant Wycombe, who will be one of the favourites for promotion in League Two this season after being relegated from League One last season.

Unfortunate

Here's something: The Two Unfortunates has a piece on Wycombe Wanderers managers, and of course this little group contains one Lawrie Sanchez:

"Part-Mafioso, part Churchillian leader, Lawrie's astonishing assuredness throughout the run was hugely inspiring to players and fans – he never for a second seemed in doubt that we could win the whole damned thing"

A lot of Fulham fans didn't like the cut of Sanchez's jib.

Clint Dempsey – some stats and bar charts

Craven Cottage Newsround at related • 0 views

In September 2007 Clint Dempsey latched onto a loose ball and steered it left-footed into the Wigan net. The away crowd, jubilant, sang of the scorer: "He scores with his left, he scores with his riiiiight, that boy Clint Dempsey, makes Drogba look [censored]".

And so it proved. Dempsey has now scored 50 times for Fulham (six against Wigan): 10 with his left; 25 with his riiiight, 12 with his head and, entirely summing the man up, three with 'other'.

A thought or two about Fulham’s transfer policy

Craven Cottage Newsround at related • 1 view

It occurs to me that the chairman's spending has come in bursts, and when Premiership survival was under threat.

http://www.transferleague.co.uk/premiership-transfers/fulham-transfers.html (for full details)

Big splurges (Premier League era):

On promotion to the division
When Chris Coleman's team nearly stumbled out of the division and Lawrie Sanchez was given money to overhaul things
When this didn't work, Roy Hodgson got money to overhaul things

Since then we've been in tick-over mode.

Whenever I think of West Brom I think of sponsorship: back in the 80s they had the famous "No Smoking" logo on their shirts. Last time in the Premiership they didn't have any sponsor.  I thought at the time that this was a missed opportunity; if nobody would pony up, why not run the no smoking symbol again as a kind of public service?

It wasn't too long ago that Fulham were poised for relegation. To be precise, about two years ago, the Cottagers were battling for Premier League survival, which was finally masterminded by their persistent manager Roy Hodgson. One of the most impressive English managers in the modern game, Hodgson inherited (and successfully groomed) a team that had struggled to find its identity under Lawrie Sanchez.

Fulham manager Roy Hodgson put an early bug in Mohamed Al Fayed's ear for coinage toward the'10-'11 season. After reading about it and watching his current patchwork team, decimated by injuries, put together two wins and a draw while keeping three clean sheets in a row- in addition to morphing/improving steadily over the course of the last two and a half seasons- I'm thinking, "Does any manager in the Prem have more of a right to some cold cash money than Hodgson?

A quick opportunity then to put the derby defeat behind us and get back on track.

There has been a huge media focus on us in recent times, mainly for non-footballing issues it has to be said, so it would be nice to focus solely on on-pitch matters and this competition does offer us the best opportunity to land a trophy.

I turn on my bx and it's like punk never happened
The community's charged up and the West End's alight
And it's Jimmy Bloody Tarbuck on a Saturday night

And I'm sick to the back teeth, frony teeth and tonsils
Of hit making factories and kids niffing Ronseal
The run down, the hard up and the national health
And it's Jimmy Bloody Tarbuck on a Sunday as well

Friends, Romans, country fans

Am I the only one thinking that Newcastle will finish bottom of the Premier League this season? After selling their best player in Shay Given, the team has lacked purpose and quality, and due to the unfortunate manager changes, (of course Joe Kinnear receiving heart by=pass surgery was an unforeseeable event), the tactics have been all over the place, and Newcastle just haven't worked out how to play football.
