Why do Arsenal walk the ball into the net?

Why do Arsenal walk the ball into the net?

'Shhhooooottttt!!' we hear the Arsenal crowd chant. 'These fancy dans are more interested in walking the ball into the back of the net rather than pulling the trigger' say the opposition fans. Pundits on the television sigh as they complain about Arsenal once again trying to score the perfect goal instead of putting the laces through the ball whenever an attacking player is within a 40 yards radius of the opposition goal. These are some of the strokes used to …
Aston Villa | Don't Panic!

Aston Villa | Don't Panic!

The 2011/2012 English Premier League season is being embraced with less enthusiasm than usual for a number of Aston Villa supporters, and the reasons for this are numerous. For the sake of both this article and my sanity, I will be concentrating on just two of them; Ashley Young, and Stewart Downing. Young’s departure came as no surprise, as contract negotiations between Employer and Employee had been stalling for the preceding 12 months.  The inevitable finally happened on 23 June, when …
The Riches of Doyle and Fletcher

The Riches of Doyle and Fletcher

For the past two years, whilst being in the Premier League, Wolves have been at their most effective whilst playing 4-5-1. However, this surely must be the season that  Mick finally reverts back to his favoured 4-4-2 formation with both Doyler and Fletch leading the line. Over the last two seasons there is no question that Wolves have not had the midfield and defence to allow us to play two up top as we have often been stretched, leading to many …
Spurs' Problems All Up Front?

Spurs' Problems All Up Front?

Spurs will miss the Champions League  because they have terrible strikers. This seems to be the consensus of fans and pundits. Do the statistics really demonstrate such a simple conclusion? It’s not hard to see where Tottenham went wrong last season. They were last of the top 6 for both goals scored and conceded. Even Liverpool, who finished 4 points behind, scored more and conceded less. Spurs missed out on Champions League football in 2011/12 because they scored too few …
Stewart Downing | Player Profile

Stewart Downing | Player Profile

On Friday 15th of July 2011 it was announced that Stewart Downing had completed his long awaited move to Liverpool Football Club. It has to be said that this signing has been somewhat underwhelming for most Liverpool fans, especially with the suggested price tag of £20 million. Although Stewart Downing may not be player that will set the world alight, he still has a lot to offer Liverpool. Also being a left-footed wide player he is something Liverpool have been …
Jones Vs Walters (Vs Huth?!)

Jones Vs Walters (Vs Huth?!)

Stoke City only scored 46 goals last season. Champions Manchester United scored 78. 12th placed Newcastle United scored 56. Blackpool, who were relegated in 19th, scored 55. If the EPL stats show anything, it’s that goals are important than clean sheets. Kenwyne Jones ran away with the accolade of top Stoke goalscorer on 9 goals, while Jon Walters and Robert Huth – yes, the former Chelsea and Middlesbrough centre back Robert Huth, both finished on 6 goals. Compared to these, …
