Since this is a stats thread, I might jump in with an interesting statistic read in the FT this weekend. The article was about overperforming and underperforming managers in the EPL all the way down to League 2. The ranking was based on % of wages / position in the league. Imperfect way to do it but as good as any. AW was in the top 4, as he should be. However the interesting tidbit was that Arsenal had 6% of wages of the EPL between 2000 and 2006 and 8% since (there are 20 teams so the average should be 5%). It does show that players are not only overpaid in absolute terms, but overpaid given their performance. This is not a blame-Wenger post, just thought this might be of interest.

A few interesting Arsenal bets that i came across with William Hill;

RvP v Arsenal;

– Arsenal team without van Persie to score more than van Persie @ 4/7
– Robin van Persie to score more than Arsenal team combined @ 5/4

It doesnt specify but i presume the above bet is goals scored until the end of the season in the league.

Arsene Wenger to be manager of Arsenal 1st day 2012/13 season;

– yes @ 4/6
– no @ 11/10

Multiples;

No Trophies @ 1/16 (ouch!!)
FA Cup/Champions League @ 80/1
Premier League/FA Cup – @ 300/1 (should be 30000000/1)
Premier League/Champions League @ 500/1 (just LOL)
