Sorry to be off-topic but I don’t understand the news about Kolasinac fighting off two knife wielding thugs is not here on this news site.

It’s because we don’t have any more information than a 7 second grainy video clip, with no more context, and we felt it was a bit sensationalist so we’re waiting for more information

Surely not more sensationalist than Bendtner rubing his mickey on a taxi. BBC have a full length news article which provides a lot of background

Well you guys are in charge but it if you stick to the facts it’s not sensationalism surely? You don’t have to use the headline “Arsenal First Team Duo “Could Have Been Killed””. A nice clean report with more to come?
