"It was an easy decision to sign. I could have gone elsewhere, I had calls, but it never entered my mind it's not about the money."
RIP Craigos. A true CW legend. You will be missed.
Gonna look up your address on the electoral register so that I can test the veracity of that statement tbh.
So, that looks like the end of Andre Santos at Arsenal. What a terrible, terrible shame.
Chippy's leaving his role at our academy too. Will stay involved in the club in some capacity tho. Love the man, has helped bring through some great talent since he took the gig on.
Obviously I am biased as ****, but I do love the way we use Arsenal men in the backroom. Keeps our core identity intact.
Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion
- As featured in The Independent.
"The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
- Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change
Yeah, supposedly Bergkamp is being lined up as his replacement. Hope that it happens.
Better than Ronaldo /JeffStelling
Don't get me wrong, good player. Very good premier league player but not in the top 25 in the world IMO

I dislike how there is this pervading underrating of British players - perhaps to counter some fans which overrate - but Bale is definitely in the top 25 for mine. I'm sure every top club would want him right now.
I think there'll sooner be another Bradman than another Warne. - Gidgeon Haigh
[Warne is] the greatest bowler ever produced in this entire world - Muttiah Muralidaran
[Warne is] the greatest bowler of all time - Glenn McGrath
In my opinion Shane Warne is the greatest cricketer who's ever lived - Ian Botham
Warne is the greatest cricketer to pick up a ball ever.
And is the greatest bowler I have ever laid eyes on. - Brian Lara
Which is of no relevance whatsoever. It's not like I said there are 25 better left wingers, did I?
I've recognised he's a good player, very good in fact.
But when there's stuff like this being thrown about - http://www.skysports.com/opinion/sto...477969,00.html it's bemusing.
Question, do you reckon Bale is closer to being the 2nd best or 25th best player in the world? He's miles from being in the top 5 let alone getting close to Ronaldo.

TBF I don't think the underrating of British players is a problem we, as a football watching nation, are overburdened with.
Bale's very good tho. Third best player in the Prem currently I'd say.
Van Persie & Suarez?
