Whatever happens, we are in store for one of the most important and exciting January transfer windows in Arsenal history. Let's hope it has an even bigger magnitude than the 2009 winter window where a certain Andrei Arshavin was signed on deadline day.

Why aren't women allowing themselves to be proud to show off their mental capacity such as academic ability but have chosen the route of posing naked? After all, there are more women at university than men.

Nothing surprises me about the ignorance, stupidity and aggression of some fans. What shocks me is the inability of the governing bodies, teams and federations to respond with any sort of intention of stamping this behaviour out.

Is Australia a Racist Country? Its Most Controversial Sportsman, Anthony Mundine, Says 'Yes'

Martin Newman | Posted 23.12.2012 | UK Sport
Martin Newman

National Sorry Day (now called the the Day of Healing) is worth nothing if it's just an apology for a distant past. If Aboriginal kids continue to grow up with few opportunities and little self-esteem what good is saying 'sorry' to make ourselves feel better? More people like Mundine are needed to start talking about solutions. And not just Aboriginals - white folk too.

It's the sporting world's 'entry drug', give in to the dark side embracing the 'Big C' and you're on the fast track to an obligatory doping scandal.

You know that feeling when you've gone for a really good meal, but leave still feeling a bit hungry? That's the overwhelming feeling I've got from watching Arsenal so far this season. Don't get me wrong, it's not been a bad start...not exactly awe-inspiring, but still decent enough and with shinning beacons of promise (and don't we just love the words 'promise' and 'potential' at Arsenal!)
