BaldTony - I think part of the problem with Arsenal is that they haven't really been trying to win anything for so long, it's just turned into their default mindset.

Celebrating qualifying for the Champions League every year, but not coming close to winning it or the League. If that was United or a similar club they would be going mental at the lack of ambition. But no, it's just accounts and aiming for top 4 and selling and pretty football and not defending.

Arsenal have certainly been run like a business and not a football club the last 5+ years.

The move to the new stadium was supposed to enable Arsenal to compete financially with the elite. But today we still can't compete financially, and over the last 3-4 years the squad has deteiorated to such a degree that neither can we compete on the pitch. Do United fans seriously consider Arsenal as their rivals now? Sadly I don't think so.

Slightly confusing there is about £100 million available to spend, but neither the board nor Wenger want to use it. Nobody seems to know why.

The board pinning their hopes on the new sponsorship deals and the FFP to enable Arsenal to compete again is also very risky in my opinion. God knows how far behind the big clubs we'll be by 2014.

I'd have rather stayed at Highbury to be honest.

Since there's no Italian football thread figured I'd post this here.

One Udinese fan made the trip to see his team win in Genoa. Proper supporter.

 

A football fan has stolen media attention in Italy after being the only supporter to show up to watch his club play an away game in the top league.

 

Udinese fan Arrigo Brovedani was the club's sole supporter in Genoa for a Serie A match against local team Sampdoria.

The 30-something wine merchant found himself alone in the visitors' section.

But Sampdoria stewards gave him coffee and home fans invited him for a drink after the match.


Mr Brovedani told the BBC he had not expected to find many fellow supporters from Udinese, one of the smaller clubs in Serie A.

It was a cold Monday night and Udinese never attracts more than 50 or 60 away fans.

Early boos
"But I went there thinking I'd find five or six other people," the Udinese fan said.

"I went into the stadium while they [Udinese] were warming up. I shouted and said 'hi' to the team.

"When I went in the local fans booed me, I felt a bit offended.

"But in the end they clapped and invited me for coffee and a meal, and the club managers gave me a shirt. They wished me a merry Christmas."

Genoa is about four hours' drive from Friuli, where Udinese are based.

But Mr Brovedani was in Genoa on business.

"I like the stadium there, it's very similar to English stadiums," he said. "I always take my flag and scarf around - they're always in the car with me."

Luckily for Mr Brovedani, Udinese won the match 2-0 and the team dedicated their victory to their only fan. He has been invited to attend its next home match on Saturday.

Lol thats some crap away support, good on the bloke though. ^

 

anyway...

 

Steven Caulker and Thomas Ince banned after Serbia fracas

Thomas Ince and Steven Caulker have been banned over incidents that took place during England Under-21s' win over Serbia in October.

Four Serbian players have also been banned, while two of their coaches are suspended for two years.

Uefa has ordered Serbia to play their next competitive under-21 match behind closed doors, and they have also been fined £65,000.

The FA are set to appeal against Ince and Caulker's one and two match bans.

England's players were racially abused during the 1-0 victory in Krusevac.

Uefa will send the FA their full written reasons for their decision and the FA then have three days to decide whether to appeal.

But FA general secretary Alex Horne said: "It is The FA's vehement belief that its players and staff acted correctly in the face of provocation, including racist abuse and missiles being thrown.

"We are therefore surprised to see that two of our players have been given suspensions.

"We shall await Uefa's reasoning but it is our intention, at this stage, to support our players and appeal these decisions.

"We are disappointed with the sanctions levied by Uefa with regards to the racist behaviour displayed towards England's players.

"Let's be clear, racism is unacceptable in any form, and should play no part in football. The scenes were deplorable and we do not believe the sanction sends a strong enough message."

England head coach Stuart Pearce insists his players did nothing wrong.

He said: "I am concerned to see our players suspended by Uefa and we will continue to support them.

"I maintain that our players played no part in the aggression. From what I witnessed our players and staff were forced to protect themselves in the violent scenes that followed the game."

Uefa said Serbia were punished due to the "improper conduct of its supporters during and at the end of the match, as well as for the improper conduct of the Serbia players at the end of the game".

Blackpool winger Ince, 20, will sit out the England Under-21s' Euro 2013 game against Italy in June, while Tottenham defender Caulker, 20, will also be absent from the match against Norway.

Uefa's control and disciplinary body dismissed disciplinary proceedings opened against the Football Association.

Serbia assistant coach Predrag Katic has been banned from football for two years, with the final six months suspended for a probationary period of three years.

Fitness coach Andreja Milunovic has been banned from all football-related activities for two years, with the second suspended for a probationary period of three years.

 

Serbia players Ognjen Mudrinski and Nikola Ninkovic have already been suspended for a year by the Serbian Football Federation and they were handed respective three and two-match bans.

Goran Causic has been suspended for four games and Filip Malbasic is banned for three matches.

Minister for Sport Hugh Robertson said: "I am disappointed in the punishment that has been handed to the Serbian FA given the widespread racist abuse that England's under-21 team suffered that night.

"Racism is completely unacceptable and we need tough sanctions to help combat it."

Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand tweeted:  "Uefa are not serious at all on racism. Fines do not work at all. They have zero impact on federations, clubs ,fans (and) players.

"Uefa need to talk to this generation. They don't seem to be up to date on this issue. Harsh punishments needed as a deterrent."

Kick It Out's Troy Townsend, whose son Andros played in the game in Krusevac, thinks that the penalties against the Serbian federation were not heavy enough.

He told BBC Radio 5 live: "Steps need to be taken to make sure these things don't happen again and I'm not sure that is going to be the case.

"It's not nice for anyone to be watching those pictures, players being chased around the pitch, the chanting and England management being hit.

"I feel that Serbia have got away with it and the [Serbian] FA needs to be accountable.

"It's great fining them and banning the players, but at some stage the FA have to be held accountable and it's not the first time they've been involved in incidents and they're getting away with it again with a slap on the wrist."

And look at this

 

Recent Uefa fines

  • £16,700 to Porto for their fans' racist abuse during the Europa League match against Manchester City.
  • £32,500 to Lazio following racist chanting during a Europa League game against Tottenham.
  • £24,735 to Manchester City for being one minute late back onto the pitch after half-time against Porto.
  • £80,000 to Denmark striker Nicklas Bendtner for revealing a sponsor's logo on his underpants during Euro 2012.
ridiculous...
