Top Potential De Gea Replacements For Manchester United

It is seems increasingly likely that this summer Manchester United will be faced with the arduous challenge of replacing their Player of the Year and star goalkeeper David De Gea.

Should Arsenal Change their Goalkeeper this Summer?

Should Arsenal Change their Goalkeeper this Summer?

2015 has been a very positive year for Arsenal.  They've gone on their longest winning run since the Invincibles, won at both the Etihad and Old Trafford, are currently 10 games unbeaten, and are in control of their own destiny in the race for second.  Yet, for all that positivity, there is still room for improvement.  Even if they win their game in hand, they will be 10 points behind champions Chelsea.  That shows despite improvement from the gunners, there …

Szczesny | The Cusp of Something Great? Stats from 10/11 onwards

Wojciech Szczesny is a goalkeeper that has been earmarked as Arsenal’s number 1 since January 2010. Wenger is quoted as saying “I really believe in him that he will one day be Arsenal's number one.

The punters should be wary of this team as they have the ability to win big games with this colossus leading them.

Hart and Soul

Hart and Soul

Joe Hart dives to his right, makes the stop on DeLaGarza of the LA Galaxy, immediately grabs the ball, places it on the penalty spot, calmly strokes it in to the top right corner, and wins the game for City. OK maybe this is against an MLS team in preseason, but the point still stands: Joe Hart is good. He’s one of the best at his position, playing all 38 games for City last season. Exactly how good is he …
