Arsene Wenger's Risks Did Not Pay Off - Player Ratings v City

Arsene Wenger's Risks Did Not Pay Off - Player Ratings v City

To say this is a familiar feeling for Arsenal fans would be an understatement, to say the least. An away day at a top-six club ending with questions, frustration and ultimately disappointment is becoming more than an annual event for the Gunners faithful. This time they faced Manchester City; a team who have now scored a record 52 goals after just 17 games in all competitions. Based on this – and when remembering Arsenal’s previous falters away to top sides …
Chelsea Football Club - A Study In Leadership

Chelsea Football Club - A Study In Leadership

In modern football the role of a captain can be a somewhat superficial role, it implies a certain level of authority over a club and its fanbase that is unnatural to most clubs in the Premier League. However, Chelsea football club is a different type of club. Not to say they are bigger or smaller than any other club in England, just different. Lost yet? let me explain. Chelsea's last fifteen years as a club has offered unprecedented success to …
Arsenal Player Ratings vs Liverpool after 4-0 loss

Arsenal Player Ratings vs Liverpool after 4-0 loss

“Embarrassing”, “pathetic” and “disinterested”; just three of the words used by pundits and supporters alike to describe one of the worst Arsenal performances of the Arsene Wenger era. But unfortunately for the Gunners faithful, this type of performance is far from becoming an uncommon occurrence in recent years, particularly against the league’s best sides. 6 years ago Arsenal’s 8-2 collapse at Old Trafford to Manchester United was seen as a crisis, exaggerated by the fact that it was rare to …
David de Gea – Liverpool’s Nemesis, But Not the Best This Season

David de Gea – Liverpool’s Nemesis, But Not the Best This Season

Liverpool fans generally do not find much fault with Rafa Benitez but some like me do feel that he should have signed David de Gea on the summer transfer deadline day in 2015 for Real Madrid. That he didn't, has troubled Liverpool big time. In the last five league matches between Liverpool and Manchester United, de Gea has put in 17 saves (3.66 per game) and since his move to Real Madrid fell through, he has put in 9 saves (3 …

Issues That Wenger Must Immediately Address at Arsenal

This season marks Wenger’s 21st year as manager at Arsenal, and it’ll be one of the most challenging seasons as he’ll have to face-off against the likes of Pep Guardiola, Antonio Conte, and of course, Jose Mourinho. With other clubs making no effort to downplay their spending, Wenger has managed to make only one major signing.

Premier League records that could be broken this season

Premier League records that could be broken this season

Last season was a year to remember as Leicester City stormed to league victory in one of the most enthralling success stories of the century. Since the Premier League began, only five teams have won the title; Leicester City, Chelsea, Manchester United, Manchester City and Arsenal. Tottenham will be hoping to add their name to the prized list but there's a few other achievements which could be made this year. As well as a few proud records, there's a few …
Has Vardy done Arsenal a favour?

Has Vardy done Arsenal a favour?

I’ll admit, when I was first told of Arsenal’s bid for Jamie Vardy, I laughed out loud, presuming it to be another one of those ludicrous fantasy transfer stories that populate the tabloid press. You know the ones: “Lionel Messi could sign for Manchester United” or “Liverpool ready to bid for Robert Lewandowski”. That was how ludicrous I envisaged a link between Arsenal and Jamie Vardy, it just didn’t seem right. Imagine my surprise when it transpired that Arsene Wenger …
