The Unrealised Potential of Theo Walcott

The Unrealised Potential of Theo Walcott

Theo Walcott is one of a few remaining members of Arsenal’s group of home-grown, British Golden Boys, plucked by Arsene Wenger as a teenager from Southampton in 2006 to join the Arsenal Academy and, presumably, be groomed for greatness. And like too many of the others, he never quite matured into the level of quality originally hoped for. Just this past transfer window, two more players from this vaunted youth group discovered by Wenger with these same high expectations left …

Liverpool Vs NK Maribor Preview | Stats, Key Men & Team News

European football returns this week and in Group E, Liverpool host NK Maribor in the fourth matchday on Wednesday. The last meeting between these two sides ended in Liverpool winning the game 7-0 in Slovenia – their biggest away victory in Europe till date. The Reds must be hoping for a similarly large victory on Wednesday, while the Slovenian league champions will want the result on Wednesday to be much more respectable. For Liverpool, there have not been many things …
Liverpool vs Manchester United : A Battle for the ages

Liverpool vs Manchester United : A Battle for the ages

Always highly anticipated, often living up to the hype. Last season, leading into this fixture, Liverpool were absolutely flying. The Red Devils not so much, so Jose Mourinho parked the bus (no surprise there, actually). This season though, its a whole different story. The Media, pundits, analysts, statisticians, commentators( and the referees),  all believe that this is the year that Mourinho will bring United back to the pinnacle of English Football. It would be hard to disagree on current form …
Why Arsenal Should Sell Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

Why Arsenal Should Sell Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

Arsenal are approaching a difficult week when it comes to making a decision on several key players. There is a need to sell players in order to decrease the squad size, but they want to keep hold of three key men in the final year of their current contracts. Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Ozil and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are all approaching the end of their deals and have shown no indication of signing new ones. The first two are regular starters and …
Arsenal 2017/18: Season Preview

Arsenal 2017/18: Season Preview

On one side of the coin, the upcoming season presents many a familiar challenge for Arsenal; the fans' opinion on their long-serving manager remains split, and key players are linked with moves away. But on the flip side, the new campaign provides a host of fresh hurdles for the Gunners, particularly with the prospect of Europa League football as opposed to the Champions League for the first time in years. The weekend's Community Shield win over Chelsea will have given …

Arsenal's Options in the wake of another Santi Cazorla Injury

Things are looking up this Summer at the Arsenal; Alexandre Lacazette recently became the club’s record signing and various reports from Chile hint at star man Alexis Sanchez remaining a part of Arsene Wenger’s squad for next season. Alongside this are the continued reports linking the likes of Riyad Mahrez, Thomas Lemar and Kylian Mbappe to the club, with Mesut Ozil’s recent renewal of his Emirates Stadium box brightening the N5 skies that little bit more. But news breaking early …
Three Players Liverpool Can Pursue Instead of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

Three Players Liverpool Can Pursue Instead of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

Last time when I wrote about the Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to Liverpool transfer rumour, it was in January. Liverpool had lost Coutinho to injury and Sadio Mane to AFCON and were missing a player who could play in the advanced midfield and create adequate chances. The rumours have resurfaced over the last couple of weeks, perhaps with a bit more vigour and strength. The Red are again missing Sadio Mane, this time through injury. They are also missing Adam Lallana, the …
Have the Arsenal players turned their back on Arsene Wenger?

Have the Arsenal players turned their back on Arsene Wenger?

Another week, another game and yet another defeat for Arsene Wenger. That is 4 defeats in the last 5 Premier League games for Arsenal. It's not the defeat that is the problem but the manner in which they lost is! It has been the same old story yet again only this time, the usual has turned into a full blown crisis. On the back of a 5-0 win against Lincoln in the FA Cup, Arsene Wenger would have hoped that …
