miyaichi_ryo

Unfortunately, it’s been a wasted season for young winger Ryo Miyaichi. The 20-year-old Japanese international has been out on loan with fellow Premier League club Wigan since the start of the campaign and things certainly haven’t gone well for him. Miyaichi has now been loaned out to Dutch club Feyenoord as well as Bolton and […]

Will Ryo Miyaichi’s exclusion from the Olympics help or hinder his development?

miyaichi_ryo

It surprised many football fans when 21-year-olf Ryo Miyaichi’s name was left off of the roster when Japan’s Olympic team was announced, especially since he was named to the Japanese national team in May.

2012 could be different

Three loses in a row

Perhaps that should be, 2012 HAS to be different. More than some recent poor results, last night’s 0-0 with Bolton felt like it signalled the death knell for our season. I say this because for once we can’t hide behind conceding fluke goals or wonder goals. I say this because despite keeping a clean sheet […]

Arsenal finally put together a convincing display of football for the first time this season, beating Bolton Wanderers 3-0 at the Emirates Stadium yesterday.

garycahill

Arsene Wenger has told Bolton they can keep Gary Cahill, if chairman Phil Gartside and manager Owen Coyle maintain their stance that his initial offer for the player – rumoured to be £6m – is “derisory”. The claim comes after AW and Gartside had a bust-up after the latter triggered the row by retweeting a message from […]
