Arsenal’s current captain Thierry Henry had been contemplating a move away from Arsenal over most of last season, but thankfully stayed. He’s lost both the Champions League Final and World Cup Final but will be a stronger player because of it. Arsenal’s future is bright with the new Emirates Stadium as our home and some brilliant young players coming through the ranks.
But with the latest revelations coming out of Serie A things aren’t looking so good for our old captain.
Basically Juventus, Lazio and Fiorentina have been demoted to Serie B, and Juventus will start next season with a 30-point deduction – almost certainly confining them to the second division for at least 2 seasons.
Lazio have been deducted 7 points and Fiorentina 12, so they have a slightly better chance of getting back into Serie A within one season. That’s if they don’t lose all their players!
All the teams involved in the scandal (Juventus, Fiorentina, Lazio and AC Milan) have been barred from European competition, meaning Inter, Roma, Chievo and Palermo will benefit and appear in next seasons Champions League.
And the bottom 3 teams in Serie A – Messina, Lecce and Treviso will stay up as a result.
And Juventus have been stripped of their last two Serie A titles.
Who said the grass was greener on the other side?
