Barclays Premier League

Gabriel signs for Arsenal


Bale dismisses Man Utd rumours

 By Rory Smith

Premier League rules Deloitte rich list, so why isn't the league getting better?

Manchester United have risen to second in the Deloitte Annual Football Rich List.

Two things happened on Thursday. The first was predictable. The second was more of a surprise. To some extent, both explain each other.

The one we knew was coming was the release of the annual publication of Deloitte's so-called football rich list. It was topped, for the 10th year in a row, by Real Madrid -- another decima, of sorts, for the European champions -- but the most intriguing finding was lower down: half of the richest clubs in the world are in the Premier League. All 20 of the division's...

Newcastle boss John Carver says he won't let club 'drift away'

John Carver says he will not allow Newcastle's season to "drift away" after being appointed head coach until the end of the season.

Carver was handed the reins at St. James' Park until the end of the season on Monday, starting with Saturday's Premier League trip to Hull.

Eleventh-placed Newcastle have lost their last three games and failed to win in four as the 50-year-old former assistant manager seeks his first victory at the helm since succeeding Alan Pardew earlier this month.

"I'm delighted...

Wilfried Zaha has been revitalised at Crystal Palace under Alan Pardew

Marouane Chamakh inspired Crystal Palace's progress to the FA Cup fifth round with a 3-2 win over Southampton.

Some things are just meant to be together: Morecambe and Wise, tea and biscuits, Ben and Jerry. Wilfried Zaha and Crystal Palace can probably be added to that list now.

Reports suggest that the winger is about to rejoin the Eagles on a permanent deal, two years after leaving Selhurst for a dream move to Manchester United.

An extended period of being ignored by former United boss David Moyes, followed by an unsuccessful loan at Cardiff, saw Zaha find his way back to Palace last August on loan. And...

Gabriel Paulista completes move to Arsenal from Villarreal

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti details Gabriel Paulista's move to Arsenal, where he believes the 24-year-old defender will prove to be a valuable additional to the Gunners' defence.

Gabriel Paulista has signed for Arsenal from Villarreal for a reported fee of 11.3 million pounds.

- Scout's Notebook: Gabriel Paulista

Gabriel, 24, had a work permit agreed earlier this week and arrives in England with Joel Campbell, who also signed a new long-term contract, moving from the Gunners to the La Liga side on loan until the end of the season as part of the deal.

Arsenal reveling in newfound squad balance

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti discusses Arsenal's defensive cover in Gabriel Paulista. Marcotti feels the centre-back position may now be well covered for Arsene Wenger's side.

For most of this season, Arsenal have had an imbalanced squad.

Some of that was down to the fact that players were missing through short-, mid- and long-term injuries. However, when you looked at how the squad was constructed in the summer, it boiled down to the fact that the Gunners had too many attacking options, and not enough defensive depth.

So far this January, three forwards who hardly featured have left the club on loan. Lukas Podolski went to Inter Milan, Yaya Sanogo to Crystal Palace...
