    Thumbs up Arsenal Exposed

    I watch Newsnight on the web most nights. I'm particularly looking forward to tonight's show.

    Any idea what, if any, the punitive implications are?

    I've always thought Arsenal were dodgy; bungs, Creatine, the Dein/Hill-Wood axis at the FA, and the disappearing disciplinary record despite systematic intimidation and gamesmanship, the smoke-screen of media infatuation with a style of play reminiscent of Wolves c.1955; petulance in Paris, etc, ad nauseam.

    I still think Tottenham's lasagne needs further investigation.

    Works for me - throw that hammer down, Sami...

    Seriously, I bet they will somehow manage to skip away from this - big ol' fine and possibly some new regulations put into place to tie up any loose ends. I'd love to see more as Dein and that club in general have pissed off many but as one of the main "brands" in international football, I'll be shocked if anything meaningful results. One eye to Italy on this - very different circumstances to be sure but as much as everyone wants punishment meted out, being the one who brings down one of the big names (and bearing legacy of doing so) takes more stones than most people in sport possess...they sure ain't in modern-day football that I've seen.

    Should have made clear, that's what I read and apparently, if found guilty, that's a mandatory sentence.

    It really would be too much to ask for, and I'm certain Connie's right about the 'rules' and the courage of the game's administrators when it comes to 'brand' names. RE Roeder, who "ain' got no badges, we don' need no stihnnkeeng badges" to do the coaching job at Newcastle.

    How about branding? Literally.

    But I'm not sure that he has that much pull at FIFA and FIFA have cleared Arsenal. Given what's been going on in Italy, I'm sure FIFA would convict Arsenal. Not every coincidence means guilt.
