Two odious characters: The pugilistic Usmanov and the insipid, colourless Kroenke

Normally anything that Alisher Usmanov, the Uzbeki oligarch would have to say about Arsenal could be dispatched with a flick of the head. But what he said about Van Persie sums up the state of affairs in the Arsenal boardroom which is there is no state of affairs under the majority ownership of Stan Kroenke, who remains a cipher, a zombie wheeled out at various points of the year to parrot out a boilerplate script.

If the media would stop clanging their cymbals together about Arsenal being "bad for England," and how "Arsenal don't care about English players" and actually look at the situation, they would see that Arsenal may very well have amassed the best collection of young English talent at a single club in the last decade or so.

Arsenal 1-3 Man Utd. Or, Fergie 1-0 Wenger. United got their tactics spot-on, Arsenal didn't.

This must have made very depressing viewing for all Gunners, especially as it was spookily similar to last year's Champions League semi final at the Emirates, when United crushed their hosts on the counter-attack.

Let’s talk a little about penalty kicks and perspective

DailySoccerFix at related • 0 views

I like to give my profession a little talking to every now and again, reminding my media brethren that part of our job is to add context. It's not good enough to parrot the prevailing wisdom, to say what everyone else is saying, perhaps just endeavoring to shout it out a little louder.

Perhaps you heard about a madcap Sunday night in Portland, where referee Geoff Gamble ordered two penalty kicks retaken.

EJ on the Plight of American Players in England

Match Fit USA at related • 2 views

I'll admit it, I have a soft spot for Eddie Johnson. I know he has mostly underwhelmed to this point in his European career, and there's really no reason to believe he's suddenly going to become a top American striker. He hasn't always been the most well-adjusted player mentally, and for all his physical gifts, his play is hardly a credit to American soccer or an indication he'll be back in the USMNT first team any time soon.
