Think Adebayor needs to leave Arsenal for them to succeed?  How does Barcelona's season this year compare to Real's 107-goal effort?  Could Diego Forlán make a move back to a big club in England?

Share your thoughts below.


  1. I think Arsenal could use an RBNY overhaul. Too many players are not getting it done. Fabregas, van Persie, Adebayor, Bendtner, Gibbs and Song just to name a few.

    On top of that, this year seems to be everyone and their mom is injured or gets injured. A well-oiled machine, Arsenal isn’t. It’s time for the Arsenal to not be so stingy and open up their wallet and spend spend spend. It seems that’s the only way to win any Championships in the EPL. Personally, I prefer the hard work ethos over buying a Championship like some other EPL teams do, but I feel Arsenal needs to find a better balance with regards to signings.

  2. My Wolves (Wolverhampton) had an article in the paper (Express and Star) stating they, Birmingham, Fulham, and a couple other european clubs are scouting Onyewu. I hope Wolves get Landon Donovan in the summer too.

  3. Nice article about the USL. Would love to see a link to USL articles weekly. It is nice to see the USL continue to be a viable alternative for fans and players that cannot be a part of the MLS. This is great to see for soccer “Austin Aztex drew 5,216” in a smaller market.
