Analyzing Arsenal's November Woes

"We now have difficult games coming up, with a difficult November"  Those words were spoken by Arsene Wenger after his side had just beaten Sunderland 4-1 in a fairly comprehensive and easy manner. Incredible, considering the fact that Arsenal were unbeaten in the league since game week 1 and were notching up wins without too many difficulties.

Why Are EPL Strikers Out of Fashion This Season?

Why Are EPL Strikers Out of Fashion This Season?

Strikers. The  Glamour Boys. The Hansel's and Derek Zoolanders of the football world. The match winners. All hopes of glory rested squarely on their shoulders. Not anymore.
