Sheringham_teddy_whfc_profile_20061 When you are as good as Wayne Rooney, you don’t just lose the ability to score goals overnight.
2 Sometimes a couple of underrated Englishmen are better than two superstar Argentinians. Step forward Teddy Sheringham and Hayden Mullins.
3 Sticking nine men in your penalty area and defending for dear life can be an effective method of getting a point at Arsenal.

4 Kanu will stop scoring the minute I put him in my Fantasy Football team.
5 Contrary to the opinions of Villa fans so far this season, their club CAN do some wrong under Martin O’Neill.
6 It is possible to score against Bolton at the Reebok Stadium.
7 Watford are so unlucky. You get the impression they just need one win to get them on their way, but it will have to come soon.
8 Chelsea are going to win the title again. They are on such a run of bad luck, but they still grind out the result as they always do.
9 It doesn’t matter how many they sign, Newcastle always need a new centre-back and a new striker.
10 Blackburn need a result before their good start goes to waste.

    Hello there. I have come across quite a few people who are dissappointed with teams’ tendencies to play a strictly defensive game against Arsenal. You, on the other hand, don’t seem to think it is a bad thing. E-mail me if you get a chance.

    Hi Michelle.
    Don’t think it’s a particularly good thing for a match or football in general, but football is big business. If you happen to be a team that can’t afford to buy Thierry Henry, why not play to your strengths?
    That’s my thinking anyway!
