    im sorry but for the first time in my life i actually agree with what Wenger is saying, there should be more drugs test in English football, some players can go their entire career without being tested and something certainly needs to be changed about this. He didnt actually say anything about Ferdinand but we all know what he was thinking

    I agree with the idea that drug testing should done more, and more efficiently. It wouldn't hurt.

    But Wenger's timing, and his real reasoning for this sudden statement is blatantly obvious. He just annoys me now.

    As I mentioned in another thread, the problem with drug testing is that they're not accurate enough. There are still far too many false positives. Until the tests are improved, the league should consider dropping the whole thing altogether. Of couse they won't for the PR value of being able to say "we test".

    And at that certain drugs shouldn't be tested for. The league shouldn't test for things like marijuana, cocaine, and other things. Those don't enhance performance, they only hurt it. So that shoudl be an issue between the clubs and their players. If the clubs want to test for those, great, that's their choice. But the league should be concerned about keeping the competition between the clubs fair. They shouldn't worry about clubs or players putting themselves at a disadvantage.
