Sad news yesterday to hear that Ledley King had retired from professional football, he was an immense defender when he was fully fit and its such a shame that he was so troubled with injuries throughout his career without a doubt he would have been a first choice defender for England too.

In memory of his footballing ability we've added a video below of perhaps his best tackle ever, on Arjen Robben, back in 2006.

Second game and still no injury.

Playing in the rain. That was a fun game when we're younger, or could still be if you're young now. Or not, if your parents are overly protective of you and thinks a every drop of rain on you would kill one cell in your body. Playing football in the rain is especially fun when you're in a hot climate and that is your once in a blue moon fix for a little cold weather.

Gervinho's goal lifts Arsenal to Markus Leibherr trophy

Hurrah! A trophy for Arsenal finally. Gervinho's equalizer against the Saints was enough for the Gunners to get their hands on the Markus Leibherr trophy even as they lost the penalty shootout because they had already won against Anderlecht, 1-0 on Henri Lansbury's goal. It was a very young Gunners squad with only Kieran Gibbs, the captain keeping company with Marouane Chamakh and Carl Jenkinson from the first team.

Should UEFA expand the Euro field?

Soccer By Ives at related • 1 view



Euro 2012 has been one of the more intense, entertaining international tournaments in recent memory, with each game carrying loads of significance and each group coming down to the final day of group play.

Even with the 16-team format providing such a strong competition -- and groups containing multiple world powers, making for high drama -- UEFA is poised to expand the tournament field to 24 teams in 2016, something that UEFA president Michel Platini has conceded "will be less dramatic" in the group stage.

Nothing is certain but death and taxes... and not losing to Spurs. They may score from the half way line in the last minute, plain for all to see, but it won't be given. They may be 3-0 up at half-time, but we'll score five in the second half. They may believe they have a freekick after one of our players blatantly handballs it, but the ref will play advantage and we will score a goal regardless.
