wenger....true great of UK game he has done wonders for arsenal year in..year out

I have always defended him from unfair criticism

but sport is not just about doing well...but winning and clearly wenger was never going to motivate players to big success ever again

so time is right ( or maybe 1 year too late ) for him to move on

Wenger was a great manager, but since the turn of the decade he's become a follower rather than a leader - he's following the different tactical trends rather than making them. 4-2-3-1, 3 at the back etc. It's time he leaves - hopefully for him he can go out with a bang, rather than finishing below burnley.

More troubles for the Murdochs
https://www.theguardian.com/football/2018/may/02/eleven-sports-la-liga-internet-live-footbal-sky-sports-radrizzani
Live football matches could be shown exclusively over the internet in the UK for the first time after Sky lost the rights to broadcast Spain’s La Liga.

Eleven Sports, founded by the Leeds United owner, Andrea Radrizzani, has acquired exclusive rights to the Spanish top flight for three years, starting from 2018-19.

It brings an end to an association with Sky Sports that has lasted for more than two decades, although the broadcaster may yet be able to show games through a secondary agreement with the new rights holders.

Just watched the last ten mins of the German cup final and was pleasantly surprised they use video technology. Perfectly as well with sometimes the ref just asking the people in the booth to tell him their decision and it takes 10 secs. To confirm the goal and to see if there was a penalty he had to see the vid himself which took a minute. In the end it went maybe 5 minutes longer. Totally worth it to get the right decisions and there was drama in those moments too. Hope the world of football follows.
