Crystal Palace manager Ian Holloway sidestepped some searching questions after his side slipped to another Premier League defeat in comical fashion. The Eagles boss refused to be drawn on what he would say to his players after the 2-0 defeat to Southampton. Instead, he opted to turn the tables on the reporter posing the questions.

With Robin Van Persie signing for United joining the likes of Wayne Rooney and the emergence of Danny Welbeck, Javier Hernandez must be wondering what's going to happen to him this season?

Now this is only rumour and there is no concrete truth in the story as yet but this is something that could gather momentum right up until transfer deadline day.

Matchfit Mistfits – Truth & Faction in Teamsheets

FutFanatico at related • 0 views

As a society, we place a premium on telling the truth. However, more often than not, the truth gets twisted, concealed, beaten, and murdered. There are two types of untruths: telling a boldfaced lie and, equally important, not revealing important facts. In the world of soccer, untruths abound.

I speak, of course, of team sheets.

Arsene Wenger has admitted that Arsenal are still "in the market" to try and add "quality players" to the squad, but he made it quite clear (unless he was being economical with the truth) that he is NOT looking for any defensive midfielders, which would seem to rule out any bid for Yann M'Vila.

Arsenal come out on top as Robin Van Persie sold to Man Utd

Soccerblog at related • 0 views

£23m is a nifty piece of business for a semi to permanently crocked striker who when he can play healthy scores. The good thing too is that this bit of business was resolved so quickly before it became a major drag on the season's start.

Truth be told, RVP has been a peripheral figure in Arsenal's recent existence which explains why his departure doesn't have the same gut wrenching quality as say Cesc Fabregas last year.

Van Persie …….. he signs when he wants?

Arsenal Arsenal at related • 0 views

I am quite surprised to still find Arsenal supporters who actually believe that van Persie was serious when he wrote that he was not going to renew his contract because he wanted to go to a club where he would win trophies.

Although, I am not 100% convinced that he personally wrote or even endorsed the piece that everyone refers to on the web site that bares his name; I do think on balance that we have to believe it because, quite simply, he has never denied it.

Benchwarmers to Gamechangers

Arsenal Arsenal at related • 0 views

One of the most difficult things for Arsène Wenger over the last couple of seasons has been looking over at his bench and asking himself just who he could bring on to change the game.

To be fair to Arsène this wasn't a problem in the early days of his reign he had a first eleven so much better than the rest of the Premier League that when he turned to his bench he was looking to give a rest to the players who had already put the game out of sight.

Giovani Dos Santos may have turned in some impressive displays at London 2012 but Spurs fans had seen it all before. The midfielder had consistently produced goals and match winning performances at international level before returning to Spurs and continuing to disappoint.

A new manager may have watched Gio at the Olympics and decided to give him a run in the team but stories over the last 48 hours insist that the Mexican is finally on his way – possibly as part of a deal involving Brazilian international goalkeeper Julio Cesar.
