Arsene Wenger in and as The Count of Monte Cristo

Arsene Wenger in and as The Count of Monte Cristo

On May 26th, Arsene Wenger bared his soul to the world. “I believe there's a difference between being criticized and being treated in a way that human beings don't deserve. The lack of respect from some has been a disgrace and I will never accept that. I will never forget it. The behavior of some people during the season, that is what hurts me most.” For a person who had spoken a couple of years back of having learnt to …

What should Chelsea do to limit the loss of Eden Hazard?

Chelsea have been dealt a blow in recent days as Eden Hazard has suffered a broken ankle while on international duty with Belgium. The attacker managed to stay relatively injury-free during the Blues' title-winning campaign and that was a major factor in their triumph.

Arsenal Vs Manchester City FA Cup Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

A couple of years back, one of the FA Cup promotions on television had a theme – “Anything Could Happen”. This season’s tournament was a sort of an embodiment of those words. Lincoln City’s run up to the quarter finals, Sutton United’s run up to the last 16 and Wolves dumping Liverpool out earlier in the tournament. Not just this season’s results, but all of the last four finals have been contested (and once won) by at least one team …

Middlesbrough vs Arsenal Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

On April 17th, Middlesbrough host Arsenal in a match between two sides that look like they will fail to reach their objectives this season. With seven matches left, Middlesbrough are looking likely to be relegated.  As multiple Sunderland teams have taught us recently, it's not over until it's over, but with only seven games left and a six point gap to safety, it's looking unlikely for Middlesbrough.  Firing manager Aitor Karanka does not seem to have fixed their problems, as they've …

What went wrong for Arsenal against Liverpool?

Arsenal were swept aside with ease at Anfield on Saturday evening as Arsene Wenger's side struggled to overcome their bogey team. The two teams have had a long-standing rivalry but there was an elevated sense of competition last weekend as both clubs are in prime position to challenge for a top four finish at the end of the season. It was Liverpool who gained the advantage though, as all three points moved them back into a Champions League qualification spot …
