Football is not coming back any time soon: so what happens to the clubs then?

By Tony Attwood

There is an article in the Guardian which says

Following Uefa’s ruling, Arsenal, not Tottenham enter the Europa League

by Tony Attwood

The key point to note from the latest Uefa rulings on what happens next in relation to football, is first that national leagues will not be banned from European competition if they don’t finish their seasons. That ruling has been overturned.

But more importantly from Arsenal’s point of view is that this […]

Slowly football is changing, but unfortunately not everyone is following the plot

By Tony Attwood

You might not know if from reading the English blogs and newspapers but yes, decisions are being made, and proposals are being put on the table.

Burnley have committed 270 fouls this season, Arsenal 259. Not that much in it. Burnley the slightly dirtier […]

First up, United are […]
