Both represent excellent business. Its a quality defensive midfielder we lack. Fourth place again! PaulDubya SEB THE GOONER (L&B 27/07) Arsene knows (I hope) what hes doing... Redweazle SEB THE GOONER (L&B 27/07) knock it on the ead son, we have cover! Ooh to be a... Deefella SEB THE GOONER (L&B 27/07) here we go again, doubting AW. I told you last year, lets get behind the team and let the non-fans do the doubting, muppet. Gunnerchic NICE to see Arsenal have set their sights on finishing 4th with no trophy again, quote their legend Ian Wright. Hope-less AFTER Sunday Ive revised my previous forecast (9th). Spurs to finish 15th. Matt ITS obviously triffic as arry might say, that weve signed Crouch but, defenders anyone? Lopez RE ASHES (L&B 27/07) standby Aussies, FRED ALERT, FRED ALERT. The horror movie continues, starring our number one bowler in the Aussie version of the Shining. HERE COMES FREDDIE! Johann Strauss RE ASHES (L&B 27/07) with the much-criticised KP out of the side tomorrow, exactly who are all the cricket experts going to have a pop at should England slump to 50 for three before lunch? Simeon SHY LEE (L&B 27/07) where is the skill in putting your foot to the floor and taking on the same corner over and over? Speedway, very dull. Farms SHY LEE (L&B 27/07) your argument sounds like failed X- factor contestants telling Simon Cowell to come up here and sing. Speedways rubbish. End of. MB Going on holiday? You can now keep up with all the action in LiteSport by logging on to: e-edition.thelondonlite.co.uk Wiggins will go public to prove hes not a dope BRADLEY WIGGINS will publish his blood testing history from the last two years to crush any suspicion over his fourth-place finish at the Tour de France. Wiggins, 29 (below), equalled the best finish by a Briton in Paris on Sunday and said: We had a test on Saturday that should be back soon. I expect everything to go online within a few days. Once the last set of bloods are in theyll release the whole thing for the last couple of years. I came from nowhere on the Tour and I dont want there to be any suspicion or doubt that what I did was natural. I have nothing to hide. I want transparency. British Cycling have all my blood tests results from the age of 19 and I might even release everything from the last 10 years. Costume drama as Gemma does it the old-fashioned way GEMMA SPOFFORTH produced the first genuine world record of the World Championships in Rome last night -- when the 21-year-old from Portsmouth claimed Britains first gold medal in the 100m backstroke... wearing a Speedo. While the new-fangled Arena supersuit was used in the other 14 world marks set so far, Spofforth edged out the Russian Anastasia Zueva in her old- fashioned costume to win in 58.12secs. Spofforth (inset, with medal) said: I always said its not the suit, its the swimmer. I think I have the mental toughness to do it, whatever Im wearing. US golden boy Michael Phelps -- also in the old Speedo -- suffered his first big defeat for five years in the 200m freestyle and his coach said he is unlikely to compete again until the suit saga is sorted. swimmer. I think I have the mental toughness to do it, whatever Im wearing. US golden boy Michael Now BMW go off the beaten track Germans quit F1 and Kubica is set for Ferrari BMW today became the latest Formula One team to bow to the economic crisis and quit the Grand Prix circuit. The German manufacturer followed Honda out of motor racings premier competition -- and Toyota are reported to be considering a similar move amid falling car sales worldwide. BMW, who took over Sauber in 2005, have had a poor season and are eighth in the constructors championship after finishing third last year. BMWs departure at the end of the season could free up their star Polish driver Robert Kubica as Ferrari seek a replacement for stricken Felipe Massa. Kubica (right) could even be in place for Ferrari at the next race, the Euro- pean GP in Valencia on 23 August. BMW had hoped to challenge strongly for both championships this year -- in 2009Kubicawasleadingthedriversrace at the halfway stage. This time around Kubica has just two points to his name after 10 races, with Germanteam-mateNickHeidfeldonsix. The team are also known to be upset by the failure of their KERS energy-recov- ery system, which they had campaigned tirelessly for last year. BMWsdecision,announcedinMunich this morning, comes as a crushing blow for the sport and for Bernie Ecclestone, the chief executive of Formula One Management. It had been thought that all five remaining manufacturers would pledge themselves to the sport until 2012 by signing a new Concorde Agreement. But BMW motorsport director Dr Mario Theissen said in Munich this morning: We, the employees in Hinwil and Munich, would all have liked to continue this ambi- tious campaign and show that this season was just a hiccup following three successful years. But I can understand why this deci- sionwasmadefromacorporateperspec- tive. We will now focus sharply on the remainingracesanddemonstrateour fightingspiritandputinagoodresult as we bid farewell to F1 racing. Chairman Dr Norbert Reithofer said BMW were devoting more resources to projects in the field of sustainability. He added: We arereviewingallprojectsfor future viability and sustainability. Our F1 campaign is thus less a key promoter for us.

Massa (left) is in a Budapest hospital recovering from an eye injury suffered in qualifying for the Hungarian Grand Prix on Saturday and Ecclestone said: I spoke to the hospital. I doubt well see him this year. Schumacher was super-fit when he was driving, and to get fit again and be prepared to get back in a car without any testing would be asking too much. index.html2.html3.html4.html5.html6.html7.html8.html9.html10.html11.html12.html13.html14.html15.html16.html17.html18.html19.html20.html21.html22.html23.html24.html25.html26.html27.html28.html29.html30.html31.html32.html33.html34.html35.html36.html37.html38.html39.html
