Here since 2009. Unlike Cornavirus.
I've read it was Xhaka in the Leeds game. Someone put a huge load of cash for him to get a yellow in the last 10 mins of the match

Can you quote the relevant part concerning that? The article is behind a paywall.
The FA probe into an Arsenal yellow card was triggered by a surge in the sums bet on a specific player being booked in the final ten minutes of a match.

The FA said on Wednesday that it was aware of concerns around potentially suspicious betting patterns relating to a yellow card shown during an Arsenal game this season. It said it was looking into the matter and had not yet launched a formal investigation.

It is understood that the FA is examining why one betting exchange showed about £52,000 being bet late in a match on a particular player being booked. That player was then shown a yellow card.

The FA has not named the player and sources have indicated that they have not found evidence of any wrongdoing by the player, or by any other Arsenal player. The FA is working with the sports data company Betradar, which specialises is identifying spot-fixing.

An industry expert who studied betting paterns for the match told the Daily Mail that betting was unusally high, it is unlikely to involve corruption.

An industry expert who studied betting paterns for the match told the Daily Mail that betting was unusally high, it is unlikely to involve corruption. “The trading in the ten minutes prior to that yellow is nothing like I have ever seen before,” he said. “It looks unusual but the most plausible thing is that it is the perfect storm of punters opposing each other rather than fixing. I have got to emphasise it is people losing money as well as winning.

“I don’t think Premier League footballers on £175,000 a week are fixing, even to the slightly larger amounts you can win on exchanges.”

Punters can bet online on specific events during matches, including yellow and red cards. One leading bookmaker actually details the activity relating to a specific bet, which in turn may have prompted people on Twitter to speculate about the incident now under review.

The FA’s integrity team includes a six-strong unit that looks at betting cases as well as areas like social media activity.

The FA’s relationships with the Gambling Commission’s sports betting integrity unit, the National Sports Betting Group and the Sports Betting Integrity Forum enable the governing body to monitor the betting markets in English football.

I was sitting at a caff a few weeks back and a referee was sitting alone a table. He told the waiter (they knew each other) he was going to be in charge of a Champions League youth game and the waiter immediately suggested he should send off a player from each side so he could it a bet on it.

I thought the ref was going to die of a heart attack when the suggestion was made.

No evidence of wrongdoing found, apparently.
Was obvious from the get-go if you really looked into it. Either a giant conspiracy involving the ref/Xhaka/Arteta or greedy bookies being greedy. Did its job though, weaponized the fans against one of the players and created a huge disruption before a big game. Imagine being a player waking up reading that one of you is being investigated for a career ending action, and is deliberately harming the team for money.

No ****, A-M in the mud absolutely begging for Xhaka to be found guilty.

Some sussss behaviour on A-M lately. It really makes you wonder…

From African witch-hunts to people hunting down Tavares, AMN, Xhaka, Auba and Pepe. Not really surprised by the common factor.
 

Arsenal Quotes

Arsène Wenger's idea is not only to play good football. It's to play good football to win. In my day, we knew that with our style we could hurt teams and win trophies too. But we did it our way, with the positional game, passing, movement.
