When home-grown talent to likes of Carl Jenkinson, Kieran Gibbs, Aaron Ramsey, Jack Wilshere, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Theo Walcott signed a contract extension at the Emirates, Arséne Wenger had said that it was his dream to form a British Core and that the 6 men will bring back the glory days for Arsenal.

Gareth Bale V Theo Walcott | Ex-Saints Head 2 Head | Stats Comparison

  [quote]I always thought Gareth was the better prospect George Burley, former Southampton manager[/quote] This article is written in the light of former Southampton manager George Burley's statement that he has always thought that Gareth Bale had greater potential than Theo Walcott. It surprised me that Mr. Burley said this after Bale struck into his present great form. Therefore, I compare the former Southampton talents to each other to see who has performed at a  more advanced level. George Burley …

Arsenal 5 Tottenham 2: Tactical Analysis | Pre- & Post-Adebayor

The 151st London derby between Arsenal and Tottenham ended with the Gunners taking the spoils in the kind of high-scoring encounter which is rapidly becoming the norm when these two meet. Yet a 5-2 victory for the hosts would have seemed somewhat far fetched in the early stages of the game when Spurs took a deserved lead before a hugely rash challenge from Adebayor reduced the visitors to 10 men after just 17 minutes. Despite the Arsenal victory, the talking …

Wide Forwards: In Fashion? Comparison: Moses, Walcott, Nani & Sinclair

Wide Forwards: In Fashion? Comparison: Moses, Walcott, Nani & Sinclair

Recently, more and more teams in the Premier League are choosing to play a 4-3-3 formation instead of the traditional 4-4-2 and this change in formation has helped to create a new position on the pitch – the wide forward. Wide forwards are players who are looking to penetrate the oppositions defence and score rather than the traditional winger who is looking to cross the ball or create a chance for their team.  These sorts of players have become vital …

Giroud Signs for Arsenal | Joins van Persie & Podolski | Stats

Olivier Giroud's capture has been confirmed by Arsenal - joining Lukas Podolski as fresh attacking options for Arsene Wenger in the 2012-13 season.  The arrival of another striker could have signalled the exit of Robin van Persie, but given the relative youth of Giroud (25) and the immense positional flexibility of Podolski (winger, attacking midfielder, centre forward) we expect that this will simply add another petal to the flourishing rotation policy at The Emirates. Giroud enjoyed a strong season in …
