Arsenal protest falls flat

A fans' protest calling for change at Arsenal fell flat as dissenters at the Emirates Stadium were drowned out by support for Arsene Wenger.

Posters reading 'Time For Change' and 'Arsenal is stale - fresh approach needed' were held up during the Gunners' 1-0 victory over struggling Norwich on Saturday.

A small minority of disgruntled fans, probably numbering in the low hundreds, displayed the signs in the 12th minute of the match, signifying 12 years since the team last won the Premier League title.

The overall reaction to the protest, however, was mixed, as first a chorus of boos and then a resounding chant of "there's only one Arsene Wenger" rang around the ground.

One supporter loyal to the under-fire Frenchman held up a placard that read 'Proud of Arsene, ashamed of "fans"'.

Luke Shaw hopeful of Man Utd comeback this season

Luke Shaw hopes he will be back in a Manchester United shirt before the end of the season.

The left-back suffered a horrific double fracture of his leg in United's opening Champions League match of the campaign against PSV Eindhoven on September 15.

He has not yet returned to full training but is happy with how things are going and is targeting a return to the first team.

Shaw told United's official website: "I'm back outside now. Still with the physio but day by day I'm getting better and fitter.

"I'm just going to keep pushing now until the end of the season and see what happens but at the moment my leg feels really great every time I go outside.

"There were a few aches at the start but now they're all gone so it's back to hard work and hopefully I'll see the fans before the end of the season."

Shaw praised United's medical staff for helping him through the process.

"It's not been easy for them either because they have to sometimes deal with me being a little bit moody or whatnot but we've all got through it really well," he said.

"I'm not there yet, we're going to keep pushing, but thank you to all the staff for what they've done and what they've put up with the last seven months."

Relegated Bolton shock Hull

Substitute Stephen Dobbie's fourth goal of the season earned relegated Bolton a shock 1-0 Championship victory over Premier League hopefuls Hull at the Macron Stadium.

Dobbie fired home a cross from Lawrie Wilson to give League One-bound Wanderers only a fifth win of a dismal campaign, and a first home triumph in 15 matches.

It also ensured Hull's away hoodoo against Bolton continued unchecked, having not won on Trotters' territory since 1935.
