Will fixture congestion ruin Premier League season? 0

Posted on January 06, 2022 by Harry Kettle

All football fans have been forced to endure some really unfortunate times over the last few years when it comes to their love and passion for football. Now, two years into the COVID-19 pandemic, it still seems as if there’s a long way to go before we can even hope to get back to something resembling “normality”.

Arsenal, like many others, have seen a parade of postponements and cancellations over the course of the last few years – and the 2021/22 season is no different. At this current moment in time there are a lot of people calling for a circuit-breaker suspension of some kind given that so many fixtures have had to be postponed.

It’s the evening on the final day of the year, and the January transfer window will be open in a couple of hours. It’s not really surprising, therefore, that transfer rumours have started picking up pace. Let’s take a look at a couple of recent ones involving Arsenal.

Dejan Kulusevski

According to Calciomercato, Arsenal lead the race to sign the Juventus winger ahead of neighbours and arch-rivals Tottenham Hotspur. Juventus are believed to be holding out for a fee of €35 million, which is not that much for a player like Kulusevski – 21 and notably talented.

As we approach the final few hours of 2021, football fans across the world and beginning to reflect on the year that has been with 2022 now being just over half a day away. It’s been a turbulent twelve months for many and when reflecting on that, it’s hard not to have a quick think about the football – even though there are far more important things in life than the beautiful game!

Arsenal supporters have had to go through a lot when watching their club in 2021 and, at times, the same is going to be true in 2022. Alas, there’s always room for positivity in this sport – and especially at the Emirates.

Arsenal smashed Sunderland in the quarterfinals of the Carabao Cup on Tuesday by 5-1, we’re now waiting to learn the opponent for the semis. The remaining matches are to take place tonight (Wednesay), with Leicester City facing Liverpool, Brentford taking on Chelsea, and Tottenham Hotspur playing host to West Ham.

Eddie Nketiah found the opposition net three times, along with Nicolas Pepe and debutant Charlie Patino scoring too. Naturally, it was a great moment for the 18-year-old, but the good performances of Pepe and particularly Nketiah seem even more important at this point.

Arsenal’s rollercoaster ride of a campaign has, naturally, provided us with many ups and downs over the course of the last few months. As we look ahead to the remainder of the busy December schedule, something tells us that’s not going to quieten down anytime soon.

They’ve got a squad that’s capable of doing some really impressive things on a domestic front between now and May, but if they want to make some moves in the top four surge, they need to be a bit more consistent.

What next for Auba? 0

Nobody who follows Arsenal at all could have missed the fact that there’s been something going on with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang recently. The captain, the man expected to deliver goals on a regular basis and be a role model for the younger players in the squad, arguably the star of this team, has been looking off-colour for a while now.

Questions around Arteta’s Goodison attack plan 0

There may be plenty of uncertainty regarding the future of some of the forwards at the disposal of Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta, but there is still, or there at least should be, enough quality to deliver along the guidelines of a carefully constructed plan. The problem is, there doesn’t really seem to be a plan in place, does it?

It wasn’t too hard to accept defeats to a rampaging Liverpool at Anfield and Manchester United under a new manager at Old Trafford, but the one on Monday away to Everton, a team more likely to struggle for survival than anything else this term, is a different category. The game itself offered very little enjoyment to neutral spectators. It lacked quality and proper organization from both sides, and in such a contest, the Gunners ‘managed’ to come out the worse.

The Premier League returns for a rare dose of midweek action as all teams up and down England’s top flight will attempt to kickstart the busy winter period in style. That includes our very own Gunners who will renew one of English football’s greatest rivalries when they travel north to take on Manchester United.

It’s always a battle when these two clash but this time around, it’s going to be a bit different. Both sides have a lot of work to do before they get back to the top of the mountain and it begins, in earnest, on Thursday night.

Arsenal vs Newcastle – Preview 0

Another weekend of Premier League action is almost upon us with a full slate of top flight excitement for us to sink our teeth into. One game we’re going to be taking an especially close look at goes down in North London as Arsenal prepare to lock horns with Newcastle United.

The Gunners will begin the weekend in the Saturday early kick-off slot and while they’ll be viewed as the favourites, underestimating the Magpies this season as a result of their place in the table feels like a misstep.

The Liverpool defeat shows Arsenal the gap to top teams is still big 0

No doubt, you all saw what happened on Saturday when Arsenal went to face Liverpool at Anfield.

It seemed like a fun ride while the Gunners strolled through 10 matches, eight in the Premier League, without losing, but now it seems to have been a dream from which they’ve been shaken awake, quite roughly. It wasn’t exactly a horror show like the one they went through at the Etihad earlier this season, but it wasn’t far from it.
