Michael Dawson has missed such a proportion of Spurs' games over the last two seasons that he is in danger of becoming a forgotten man. Several people who have been asked to predict Tottenham's central pairing for next season have mentioned Vertonghen (hopefully), King (occasionally) and the likes of Caulker and Kaboul.

Have I Mentioned That I Hate Stoke?

30 shots, six on target, six blocked, zero goals. 76% possession to the opposition's 24%. 400 more passes attempted than the opposition. Statistically, it seems impossible.

Obviously, it's not. Because it's happened twice in three years. The above stats are from when Liverpool met Stoke at Anfield in September 2008.

The collapse of Arsenal’s defensive wall.

Our 2011/12 goals against of 49 was the worst defensive display we have experienced since we conceded the same amount 1994/5, however 1994/5 was a 42 game season so in terms of goals against per game 2011/12 was our worst ever in the EPL at 1.29 per game versus 1.17 in 1994/4.

To find a worse season one has to go back nearly 50 years to 1965/66 when we conceded 75 or 1.

Football in the financial dock, a fraud against taxpayers?

Arsenal Insider at related • 0 views

There has been some very bad news for football over the last week. The fact that Glasgow Rangers have been put into administration, by the club's owner, is an indication of the sorry state the Beautiful Game is in both financially and in terms of management.

This latest occurrence has come about as a result of Her Majesties Revenue and Customs (HMRC) demanding up to £50 million in unpaid taxes and National Insurance contributions due on money paid into Employee Benefit Trusts (EBTs).

Dalglish uses DVD to point out ref failings

Post Match Pint at related • 0 views

Manager's moaning about referee's is nothing new, it has always gone and probably will always go on. But Kenny Dalglish took things to another level by playing a DVD during his weekly press conference to point out examples of where his club were hard done by against Fulham last Monday.

The game, which the Red eventually lost 1-0, also landed Liverpool in trouble with the FA after Luis Suarez was charge after giving the Fulham fans the finger, while the club was charged for failing to control their players after they surrounded referee Kevin Friend following Jay Spearing's dismissal.

Why so uptight?

RefBlog at related • 0 views
OK, this happens every year and I'm not sure why the center referee was so uptight about it. So, of the two adult leagues that I (and most of us in this area, actually) work with, the men's league has all their games at one steady time, barring venue restrictions; the women's league does the same, except their game start is 15 minutes later than the men's typical time - except 2/3 into the season, they move all the games up 15 minutes to deal with earlier sunsets.

Somehow Hating FIFA More

WorldCupBlog at related • 2 views

The overwhelming issue with FIFA is they suck. Tis the official diagnostic abstract, and undoubtedly accepted by scholars and leading men alike Henry Kissinger too across the globe. In fact, FIFA sucking any more would seem akin to Xavi misplacing a pass just impossible.

And yet, somehow they've found a means through which we can all hate them a little bit more:

Increasing international friendly dates.
