Guilty Pleasure of a Liverpool fan - Thierry Henry

Guilty Pleasure of a Liverpool fan - Thierry Henry

We’ve all got one. The one we weren’t allowed to look at; the one we had to admire in secret, from a distance. One more appropriate to deny than to acknowledge, to dismiss than to appreciate. Guilty pleasures in football usually cross supporting lines. It’s very seldom that one can support one of the top sides and not suddenly themselves in awe, in nearly shameful veneration of a particular talent that not only plays for a rival team, but in …

The £4m Premier League Team

Transfer spending makes or breaks any club. The demise of all the following "once great" clubs can be attributed to transfer spending, Leeds United, Bolton Wanderers, Nottingham Forest, Sheffield Wednesday, QPR, Coventry City, Glasgow Rangers and a host more. Bolton with a £140m debt, rock bottom of the Championship and Leeds (who have sold both their Stadium and their training ground) probably fared the worst. In light of this it is astonishing the following Premier League 11 cost a mere £3,940,000.00. …
Comparing Arsenal's striker targets

Comparing Arsenal's striker targets

The topic of the striker position has been a big talking point at Arsenal ever since Robin Van Persie left the club in 2012.  Olivier Giroud came in to replace the Dutchman and he has split the opinions of not only the Arsenal fan base, but most Premier League fans.  The Frenchman had a very good season after returning from his injury, but some people, including Arsenal legend turned Sky Sports pundit Thierry Henry, think that Arsenal need another striker. …

The Premier League's two most influential players go head-to-head once again on Sunday as the Gunners travel to Manchester where hosts City will be looking to at least maintain the narrow two-point gap to league leaders Chelsea. It will come as no surprise to many Premier League supporters to hear that Sergio Aguero is currently in the top 2 most influential players in the league this season, so far scoring or assisting in 17 of Manchester City's league goals, after having …

Sunderland 1 Arsenal 2 | Opta Stats

Arsenal left the Stadium of Light as victors after a turgid affair with a resurgent Sunderland side. Arsenal never really looked on top form, failing to maintain a fluid passing rhythm against a Sunderland side who seemed content with playing for the draw, attacking only with quick breaks, a failure on O'Neill's part as a forward line with the likes of McClean, Sessegnon and Campbell could have asked a few questions of the Arsenal defence. The Gunners, who showed one …

Thierry Henry | Arsenal Opta Stats 11/12

When it was announced that a certain Thierry Henry was to return to Arsenal on a two-month loan deal, a slight doubt lingered even with the general excitement amongst Arsenal fans. For you see, this was not the footballing juggernaught who left the club in 2007 in search of filling the one gap- a Champions League medal- in his impecable trophy cabinate. This was an aging 34-year-old, void of the blistering pace which struck fear in Premier league defenders all …
