    Can you or someone write an article on how stupid it was for Sagna to join Manchester City? Has he played any minutes there, and did he seriously expect to usurp Zabaleta?

    why the hell should Diaby retire? sure he's seriously injury prone but he is committed to the game and arsenal. Even if injuries persist and he comes back at the age of 31, he still does have a few YEARS of playing for arsenal or any another club

    Your article on players who should retire is rubbish. Have you watched Del Piero and Heskey play in the A-league? They are marquee signings in a young developing league. They are there to expand the sport in Australia and help it become a stronger league. Before you can say this player should retire, you have to look at their influence on the team. Ryan Giggs is not just there to play, he is there to also coach and influence his teams off the pitch.

    No offence you don't know what you are writing about.
