Season tickets at Arsenal – just how big is the waiting list? At last, an answer.

Barca’s chaotic finances – now at last the truth emerges

You might remember how Barcelona have boasted about making money, having no problem with cash, and winning things at the same time, and all that sort of stuff.

This season’s team: the defence

The edition of this article published at around 8.30am BST on 26 July missed out Sagna, not because I don’t know he is there, but rather because my computer decided to take on a life of his own. His details were added at around 1pm BST. Apologies for the […]

By Tony Attwood, at the computer, Great Oakley.

So there it was, there you have it, makes you think, this is it.
