Note from Guest Writer - Olly Dyson

Most England fans will be happy to avoid replays of their uninspiring opening World Cup games, but at least one aspect of the ‘Three Lions’ team has been receiving a second glance: Their Team Uniform!In a World Cup that predictably sees the majority of teams wearing uniform supplied by one of the big-three sportswear giants, England proudly stands by Umbro, the brand that has made their uniforms for their last 5 World Cup appearances.Under the guidance of head designer David Blanch, Umbro developed the new England Home Jersey with a deliberate back-to-basics approach. The retro style jersey is a real tribute to days gone by when soccer existed in it’s purest form without the influence of big money commercialization.The white home jersey looks nothing like the other jerseys on display at the FIFA World Cup. A classic polo design for the collar along with the redesigned England Three Lions emblem and Umbro logo ensure a pure, crisp look that has become especially unique. The…

Following the confirmation of his transfer to Shakhtar Donetsk, Eduardo has spoken to Arsenal.com and asked if the following message could be passed on:

"Before I start a new chapter in my career with Shakhtar Donetsk, I just wanted to send a message to all my friends at Arsenal.

"The past few days have been very emotional for me. Although I am excited about the challenge ahead with my new club Shakhtar Donetsk, I am so sad to be leaving my home for the past three years - Arsenal Football Club.

"Arsenal is a very special football club and I will miss so many people - my team mates, all the staff and of course, the wonderful Arsenal supporters.

Also, I want to say thank you to the Arsenal supporters - you have been fantas…

Akhirnya teka teki berkenaan pemain penyerang Arsenal iaitu Eduardo da Silva terjawab juga dengan Shakhtar Donetsk menjadi kelab yang berjaya membawa Eduardo keluar dari Arsenal selepas kedua belah pihak bersetuju dengan nilai perpindahan yang di anggarkan£6.2 Juta.
Shakhtar Donetsk telah mengikat kontrak Eduardo yang berusia 27 tahun selama 4 tahun. Pemergian Eduardo ke Shakhtar turut berkait rapat dengan keinginan beliau untuk bermain sebagai pemain utama pasukan dan memandangkan Arsenal telah mengambil Marouane Chamakh, tempat Eduardo telah menjadi terlalu tipis untuk beraksi.
Sedikit berkenaan Eduardo, beliau menyertai Arsenal pada 3 Julai 2007 dengan nilai perpindahan yang dirahsiakan dan mengikat kontrak selama 4 tahun. Kehadiran beliau pada mulanya tidak begitu popular ini kerana beliau yang hanya mempunyai reputasi di Dynamo Zagreb dengan rekod jaringan yang agak baik telah dilihat oleh Wenger sebagai penganti Theirry Henry yang telah berpindah ke Barcelona.
Beliau yang berdara…
