Raul: Barcelona & Real Madrid would dominate in EPL

19

I would argue that he's wrong. My points: 1) Both teams would be forced into the EPL shared tv revenue deal, reducing their big warchests. 2) Many of the types of diving found in LaLiga (or as LaLiga fans would call it, "art") would not pass muster in the current EPL officiating environment. Particularly because of the reputation for diving, both teams would be under careful scrutiny. 3) The EPL from top to bottom is filled with physical teams. Having Barcelona and RM deal with an upshot in injuries would be an interesting challenge to observe. They'd also experience and increase in fatigue. In my opinion both teams would be heavy title challengers, favorites even. But I seriously doubt that they would dominate the EPL the same way they do in LaLiga with massive unassailable leads, as Raul claims. I'll also note that Raul has never spent a season in the EPL so he's more or less talking out of his arse. But there you have it.

I want a Barca fan view of Cesc Fabregas' loyalty.

Hello there. Over in the The Short Fuse (SBN's Arsenal Blog), there is a ongoing argument. It started with the question of whether Cesc Fabregas could be considered disloyal when he left Arsenal...

A very good read on Theo Walcott. It analyzes his play and what might be done to help him. Some of the things will be familiar to TSF regulars who have participated in our impromptu Walcott discussions, but some things will be new as well.

Arsenal Report: Top of the pyramid: why Arsene Wenger has little blame in Arsenal’s woes

An interesting little read on Arsenal's backroom politics, as well as the importance of Champions League money to our transfer chest. Keep in mind it's an opinion article. But I have great respect for the author (Ix Techau).

Clint Dempsey to be up for grabs?

Obviously there's very little here but if Dempsey wants actual playing time in the Champions League there's not many EPL clubs he could pick from. I would think Arsenal would be one of those, with our crap frontline second strings. The man is on fire.

Rejoice! Van Persie will be skipping out on the Netherlands v Germany friendly and is headed back to London, as agreed by Wenger and Marjwik. He's survived through an international friendlies period without harm!
