Tottenham guilty; Manchester in court. Arsenal in the clear

The Tiny Fantasists who inhabit a “football club” in Tottenham High Street, have been told by Office of Fair Trading that they should not ever tell their fans that tickets are non-refundable under any circumstances.

It is a basic, and obvious point, and you don’t need to be a lawyer to know how wrong they […]

FIFA new rule aims to harm Arsenal

From 1 January 2009 Fifa – the organisation described by a judge in a legal case over sponsorship as having “lied and lied and lied again” in its evidence – is to try and stop the transfer of teenage players across national boundaries.

In future a committee, selected by the discredited organisation, will examine the […]

How Arsenal’s football is being ruined

The Russians have announced that there will be no […]

Plymouth match means another game for the children

The Lord Wenger has made it clear that come what may the Infants School XI will always play in the Diddly Widdly Carling Cup – rather amusingly when most of them are not allowed to get involved with the sponsor’s product.

Now that the club has been drawn against Plymouth in the 3rd round of […]
