Who said tennis was boring? Hewitt and Coria are really trying to up the agression levels, it seems – <a href=”http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/tennis/4681275.stm”>check out this story</a> from the Davis Cup. My favourite quote:<br />
“To be perfectly honest, he’s arrogant, and he lost the match today and he’s looking for every excuse in the book. He’s a sore loser.” Go Lleyton.<br />
In the big footie story of the week, Viera is off to Juve. I expect Arsenal’s persistent failure to achieve anything in Europe is the main reason. Interestingly, most of the Arsenal chat on the web about it is a mixture of sadness and disbelief at Wenger, rather than the usual “traitor” abuse at the player himself. The assumption is that Wenger MUST have someone lined up to replace him. Surely.<br />
Well, perhaps not. Wenger might well feel that Fabregas and Flamini are good enough to cope in the centre of midfield. But if Arsenal flounder and only come 4th this season, I would expect a bit more anger from the fans.
