The Conversation with Kotoanyane Sefali: Manchester United 8-2 Arsenal

Manchester United... 8
Arsenal... 2
Malome Thabiso

I saw the first half, the second no. I just heard the score-line. To be honest I was shocked. Even though I felt at halftime United were going to win, I wasn’t expecting 8-2. I don’t know what to say really. For years we have been accused of being haters and pessimists, criticising because we are hating on Arsenal... and then you get that Don McMahon guy who writes that quite shocking piece, the Arsenal Fire Sale (I’m sorry, I just can’t get over that).

Right now what I’m asking myself is if there is a serious financial problem at the Emirates. I’m really wondering. Perhaps this whole moving stadiums business has really knocked them more than we are being led to believe, maybe there are payments they have to or want to pay off quickly. I know that the club still paying off the move from Highbury to the Emirates.

The question I ask myself is whether the board or hierarchy at Arsenal are more interested, concerned, or feel it best to run a good financial boat. I.e. they don’t want to end up like Leeds. They want to break even, cut costs and eventually run a secure and breath-taking money machine (because they are making serious yearly profits, even though they still in debt).

Where to next?
If this is the case (i.e. there is a desperation finance-wise) then this would explain the transfer policy of the last four, five years which is singularly the greatest reason why Arsenal find themselves in this position, i.e. the apparent systematic culling of quality and high-paid players and frankly not even attempting to replace them at all. For instance, Chamakh, in no way shape or form, can be considered a replacement for Adebayor. He is simply the epitome of the Arsenal signing of the last four years – barely good enough to satisfy demand and, of course, the cheapest available option. Hence why i ask about the true financial situation at the Emirates. Is there something we don’t know?

The alternative to this train of thought of course is hard to countenanc... that Mr. Wenger simply hasn’t seen or worse has ignored the faults of his procedure over the past four, five years.

Honestly I don’t want to believe that Wenger is that stubborn or blind, it would beggar belief.

And I ask myself; why else would Wenger be kept at the club when the team is showing no sign of direction at all. Are Arsenal’s hands tied behind their backs? Do the board know that Wenger is the only manager that can work under the current conditions? That’s my food for thought for the day.
Carl Jenkinson stumbles his way to a red card
On a basic level the problems are clear to see. Quite simply these players are just wearing the Arsenal jersey. They don’t care. Or they don’t care enough. You can care, but then there are times when you have to go that extra mile, something which was required at Old Trafford on Sunday, and something these players seem quite frankly incapable of. There is a lack of heart and determination there. Look at Walcott. He’s a softie. Totally. You can’t go to war with such a player. Others like Jenkinson are simply not good enough to wear that Arsenal jersey, at all.

That’s why Fabregas left. That’s why Nasri left. Arsenal (and I’ve said this before) is full of guys who think they are better than they are. Show-ponies who have won nothing. They think they are cool. That’s why they all have fancy hairstyles and prance around the field. Please tell me why Djourou is still at Arsenal, he is a disaster... and this attitude seeps through the team. Its infectious, it is like a disease.

And it has become a cultural thing and the Arsenal players smell of it. The club smells of it. That’s why United know they can massacre Arsenal. That’s why teams nowadays always feel they have a chance against Arsenal. The recent culture of mediocrity at the club has left an indelible stench. It’s a disgrace.

And then you have clowns like McMahon... they are as far removed from reality as their manager. Life is not a fairytale. You have to recognise things, try improve, or get left behind.

In Arsene We Trust
"Who knew Nasri or Fabregas 4 years ago?"
Kotoanyane Sefali
I agree with you about the culture and character of the team. My primary thought was despite everything, the sales, the suspensions, injuries and United’s good form any respectable Arsenal side should not lose 8-2 to United, or anybody for that matter if they are serious. No 11 players should lose like that against their so-called rivals. Even if United lost Rooney, Nani, Young, Vidic and Ferdinand they would never lose 8-2 against Arsenal, Chelsea or even Barcelona! That’s a disgrace.

And about the finances, I have read quite a lot about them. From what I know it’s not an excuse. Yes, Arsenal cannot compete with City, United and Chelski in that regard, but they certainly are not as tied up as Wenger’s policy suggests. Maybe in the last six years Wenger couldn’t spend 50 million on a player and pay him 200k per week. But he could have spent 20, 25mil on a player and paid him a decent salary if he and the club wanted to, just as they gave Cesc that 110k per week contract a few years back, especially with proceeds from sales they’ve had.

Another goal for United...
I’ve seen the accounts and Arsenal are comfortably meeting their debt obligations. Also don’t forget that Arsenal are now owned by not one but two billionaires, one who was outspokenly willing to sponsor a transfer splurge… and the board reacted by kicking him off the board.

Talking bout the board, what power really do they have against Wenger who’s basically made the club?  Think of the American CEO who’s been there for a couple of years, what really can he say to Wenger who’s approaching two decades at the club? He has too much power. Much like Fergie at United.

Back to the previous point, the policy Arsenal has taken is Wenger’s policy, not necessarily the way Arsenal wanted things to be done. But although we are coming off the back of the worst defeat in Wenger’s and in a century, I have and continue to support the basis of the policy. I just believe the manger has stretched it too far and somewhere along the lineslost touch with reality, become too stubborn, tried to prove a point or lost the will to win.

Nasri... another Arsenal gem gone
What’s even more frustrating is even at times like this the boss is still haggling over pennies to sign people we critically need like Cahill! He had a chance to sign Mata, Ashley Young, Hazard, Samba (and honestly I think keep Nasri) early on in the transfer window, but he failed to it with all the penny pinching. None of those guys needed over 30 mil fees or 200k wages.

They just needed him to spend some decent money that he and the club have always insisted they have and will spend “if we find the right quality”. That backline people have been talking about of Vermaelen, Cahill, Samba and Sagna. That was a formidable and financially plausible option Wenger ignored. Another thing is even if we did sign guys like Mata, I still think he needs to sign men (or boys who care) like Ashley Young or Scott Parker (who looks to be going to Spurs) to add some character to the group.

Australia Tri-Nations Champions

Australia………..(20) 25
New Zealand……(3) 20

Australia's Radike Samo charges to score
Australia beat New Zealand 25-20 in the 2011 Tri-Nations decider in Brisbane today to win their first crown in 10 years. The title is also Australia’s third overall and will be the last under the current format with the tournament to expand to a Four Nations from next year to include Argentina.

After a superb first half display the Wallabies looked to be cruising to victory at halftime as they held a 20-3 lead.

But the All Blacks staged a comeback, scoring 17 points in 19 minutes after the break, to level the scores with 21 minutes left on the clock. New Zealand scored tries through their centres Ma’a Nonu and Conrad Smith both of which were converted by Dan Carter. Carter also slotted over two penalties to level the scores at 20-20.

However soon after the All Blacks drew level a trademark break by super scrumhalf Will Genia eventually saw fullback Kurtley Beale touch down for the home side and guarantee a famous win over the top-ranked side in rugby.

Australia’s win ended a nine match Tri-Nations losing streak for the Wallabies against the All Blacks and comes just weeks before the Rugby World Cup.

Netherlands top World Rankings

Netherlands... world number one
The Netherlands have ended Spain’s reign at the top of the world of football, well at least according to the latest Fifa world rankings. The Dutch, losers to Spain in last year’s World Cup final, climbed to the top for the first time even though they didn’t play a match in the last month.

Spain had led the rankings for one year.

The Oranje profited from Spain’s 2-1 defeat to Italy, a friendly loss which has cost the world and European champions points, and have to become only the seventh team after Argentina, Brazil, France, Germany, Italy and Spain to sit at the top of the global ranks.

The Netherlands had their friendly international against England at Wembley on August 10 cancelled because of the London riots.

Meanwhile Brazil’s 3-2 friendly defeat to Germany has cost the Selecao two places as they dropped from fourth to sixth, meaning Copa America champions Uruguay, who remained fifth, have become South America’s highest-ranked team.

5th in the world

In Africa, Ivory Coast remains the top side and tied 15th worldwide, followed by Egypt, Ghana and Nigeria. South Africa moved up to seventh in Africa and 47th in the world while Lesotho slipped to 47th in Africa and number 185 globally.

Brazil Under-20 World Champions

Brazil were crowned Fifa Under-20 World Cup champions for the fifth time after beating Portugal 3-2 after extra-time in last night’s final in Colombia.

Brazil midfielder Oscar was the hero of the day as he scored a hattrick to lead Brazil to victory and avenge a defeat to Portugal in the 1991 final.

Oscar’s three strikes were also the only goals Portugal had conceded in the whole tournament.

Oscar, who plays for Brazil side for Internacional, grabbed the winner in the 111th minute of the game, lobbing a shot that was touched by Portugal keeper Mika onto the underside of the crossbar before it hit the back of the net.

He also scored in the fifth minute, a long range straight-on freekick that appeared to glance in off the head of a Portuguese defender, and then again in the 78th minute.

It was a topsy-turvy match and Alex had levelled in the ninth minute for Portugal before Nelson Oliveira’s 59th minute goal had put the European side on course for the win. But Brazil fought back to claim its fifth Under-20 World Cup title, and go a step better after having been the runners-up to Ghana two years ago.

“This really makes us happy, because now we have matched the record of the senior team,” Brazil coach Ney Franco said after the win, referring to the five Fifa World Cups Brazil’s senior side has won.

In the third-place playoff Mexico defeated France 3-1.

Samuel Eto’o to Anzhi: The Changing Face of Football

The surprise team of the year Anzhi Makhachkala are at it again and this time they seem quite serious… it looks like the Russian club really do want to sign Inter’s Samuel Eto’o in what would possibly be the biggest transfer coup in history.

Why Eto’o would want to move to Anzhi when he’s clearly still in the prime of his career is another matter because at this point talks between the clubs have brought the Cameroon international on the verge of a plane to northern Russia.

Samuel Eto'o to Anzhi?
Usually you would just laugh this sort of story off, but when Eto’o’s agent Claudio Vigorelli says they have “almost reached an agreement” then you begin to take notice. “We have almost reached an agreement with Anzhi. Now we hope that the clubs agree,” Vigorelli is quoted as saying in La Gazzetta dello Sport, perhaps not knowing the sort of reaction this type of quote would get.
So, true to form, this story has gathered steam over past few weeks with Anzhi reportedly offering Inter 35 million Euros for Samuel Eto’o in a megadeal that is said to be worth €115m in total.
The fact this Eto’o deal is even a discussion points to the increasing globalisation of football.
This week Ireland captain and tenth highest scorer in English Premiership history Robbie Keane joined MLS side LA Galaxy – a league that already houses Thierry Henry and David Beckham. A litany of mega stars meanwhile, headed by Ronaldo and Ronaldinho, have retuned home to Brazil in recent years while Corinthians’ audacious attempt to sign Man City’s Carlos Tevez were only scuppered by the impeding close of their transfer window.
And next door in South Africa, Bafana’s top scorer of all-time Benni McCarthy has dramatically returned home in what has been the story of the close season.
This growing phenomenon has many sides to it.
Benni McCarthy is now in the 18-area with Orlando Pirates
On a fundamental level it points to the emerging profile and muscle of the leagues in question. The Brazil top-flight is a fast growing league and one with deliciously rich roots.
“Brazil have a lot on their side,” South American football expert Tim Vickery said recently. “The size of the country and the passion for the game means an incredible amount of football consumers, and football is one of the most efficient ways for sponsors to solidify a relationship with the consumers – hence such high investment in clubs. I see Brazilian football today as similar to what happened in England in 1992.”
The Premier Soccer League in South Africa is experiencing a similar boom and, thanks to a massive increase in backing, is now placed seventh on the list of leagues with the largest sponsorship revenue worldwide and this morning announced a new five-year R2 billion-plus deal with broadcasting giants SuperSport.
The 2010 Fifa World Cup has also left a legacy of world-class facilities around the country and has given a huge boost to the profile of football in South Africa. Attendances in both Brazil and South Africa are also on the up and because of improved media, SuperSport for example, it is now feasible for a top local player to choose to stay at home and still reap the benefits of professional football.
Although not yet of the level of Europe’s marquee leagues, Brazil and South Africa point to a possible alternative at a time when the bountiful European model is beginning to show some flaws.

Meanwhile, China Super League side Guangzhou Evergrande – dubbed China’s Manchester City – recently launched an audacious bid of their own for Manchester United’s Korean star Park Ji-Sung. Guangzhou apparently offered to double Park’s salary. In July Guangzhou completed the high-profile signing of Argentine playmaker Dario Conca, who joined for a transfer fee of US$12 million from Brazil side Fluminense. Conca, was voted MVP in the Brazilian league in 2009 and 2010, and led Fluminense to its first Brazilian league title in 26 years in 2010. His annual salary of US$10.4 million puts him amongst the highest paid players in the world.

The rise of football wealth in countries such as Russia, Australia, Uzbekistan and the Gulf states for example now also offers previously uncharted options. These leagues are eager to tussle with the traditional top leagues and represent a world football map that would have been unrecognisable even ten years ago.
Does it point to a change in the future?
Well, right now Spain’s footballers are on strike because they haven’t been paid which has caused a delay in the kickoff of the La Liga season and has highlighted the precarious financial state of Spanish football. The once mighty Italian Serie A meanwhile has in recent years been dogged by damaging scandals and dwindling interest both cooperate and from fans.
The English Premiership – the world’s richest league – for its part remains in rude health in terms of its relentlessly popular product but it has begun to exhibit some characteristics of a bubble. While England’s clubs continue to benefit from a massive Sky television deal, because of higher costs – notably servicing buyout loans and the continued growth in players’ wages – they recorded a combined loss of half a billion pounds in the 2009/10 Premiership season. Of the top clubs, only Arsenal recorded a profit, and that was only because of property-related gains. Manchester City lost a monstrous £121 million, while Man United and Chelsea lost £79m and £78m respectively.
Two-time World Player of the Year Ronaldinho
is back home in Brazil
Players’ wages are extraordinarily high and the current European model is a bubble that may well burst if it remains unregulated. Throughout Europe clubs are run on debt and, coupled with rising wages and the economic downturn, this is a dangerous combination. Maybe it is why Uefa have proposed Fair Play Rules in an attempt to prevent a collapse akin to America’s economy – once the undisputed king but now in dire straits and in some ways increasingly at the mercy of emerging powers such as China, India and Brazil.
Of course there are always two sides to every coin. Definitely Europe is the spiritual pinnacle of football (with enormous revenue potential) but as far as the rest of the world is concerned there is a refreshing change.
At this point talks between Inter and Anzhi are serious and Inter are open to a deal.  
“There has been an informal meeting and we have listened to Anzhi’s offer. But because we are dealing with an important player, this is not a move that can be solved quickly. We will talk again.” Inter technical director Marco Branca said in an interview with La Gazzetta dello Sport.
One of the theories put forward by Goal.com is the income from the Eto’o sale will then be used to sign Genoa midfielder Juraj Kucka who Inter boss Gian Piero Gasperini supposedly wants in his midfield. Kucka was a key player for Gasperini during his time as Genoa coach and had already been earmarked Inter as a target for next year. But any Eto’o deal would bring Kucka during this transfer window. And then there is Inter’s interest in Carlos Tevez too.
Anzhi Makhachkala... Captain Roberto Carlos (right)
Another “reason” is Inter are reportedly trying to offload some of their highest earners and Eto’o, Inter’s top scorer last season with 37 goals in all competitions, will himself be enticed by Anzhi with a four-year contract offer which would earn him €20m a year, more than doubling his current €8m deal at the San Siro.
We will wait with bated breath then.

We also will wait for the day the true globalisation of football comes closer to fruition, when the playing field is evened and when the tangile socio-economic growth football can bring around the world is perhaps realised. Maybe hopefully one day the people of Cameroon will be able to entertain the exciting possibility of one of their heroes (like Eto’o) returning to play at home, even just for one season.
Though the Eto’o move to Anzhi remains highly unlikely it would be symbolic on many fronts.
