The line of six for the Arsenal job 0

The speculation about who would succeed Unai Emery as the Arsenal head coach were mounting even before the club decided to part ways with the Spaniard, and since it happened it’s gone through the roof. However, the names are always the same, always the same quartet.

Freddie Ljungberg has been appointed to the role as a temporary solution, but according to, he is also the leading candidate for the permanent role. Giving the former Arsenal midfielder a proper chance would likely prove a popular decision among the club’s supporters, at least in the beginning. After that, the amount of love and support he’d be receiving from the Emirates stands would likely depend on results and performances. He has no experience in first-team management, but he knows the youth setup well and young players would certainly benefit from his appointment.

Rodgers plays down Arsenal links 0

Brendan Rodgers has moved to quash the rumours linking him with the Arsenal job following the sacking of Unai Emery.

Currently doing a wonderful job with Leicester City, the Northern Irishman started his managerial journey with Chelsea’s youth setup where he learned the ropes from Jose Mourinho between 2004 and ’08. His first full-time projects were Watford and Reading, but he really made his name when he guided Swansea City into the Premier League and helped them establish themselves as a stable top-flight side, before leaving to join Liverpool in 2012.

Massimiliano Allegri, one of the several names reported to be on Arsenal’s shortlist to replace Arsene Wenger this summer, is set to discuss his future with his current club as the season draws to its close, according to Sky Sports.

Juventus are very close to winning the Serie A title for the seventh consecutive year, and only need one point more to make it official.

Arsene Wenger – the end of an era and a new beginning 0

As you will certainly know by now, Arsène Wenger has confirmed he will be stepping down as Arsenal manager after this season. Why has he come to this decision? Was it his decision? Is it good for Arsenal? What now? Let’s take a look.

The Legacy

It was on the fateful day of September 22, 1996, that Arsène Wenger was unveiled as the Arsenal manager, and the football landscape of England would never be the same. The Frenchman brought a full-scale revolution to England, employing a ball-on-ground approach so rarely seen on the island. He signed players, turned them into a proper team, made them grow and grew with them.

The rumours regarding who will replace Arsene Wenger as Arsenal manager have been heating up substantially over the last few months, which makes sense, given that the club have been on something of a downward spiral for a while now. Still, that doesn’t make some of the names linked with the job any less ridiculous, with Brendan Rodgers being at the very top of that pile.

Celtic young full-back Kieran Tierney has reportedly rejected a chance to move to Arsenal after expressing his desire to continue playing under Brendan Rodgers for another season.

The highly-rated 19-year-old defender has had a fantastic season for Celtic, establishing himself as a first-team regular in Brendan Rodger’s Scottish title-winning side.

Tierney made the total of 30 appearances for Celtic in all competitions whereas his fantastic club form also earned him the Scotland national team call-up this season.

Three Scottish caps come as a deserved recognition for Tierney’s club form and his stellar rise to prominence.

Arsenal must be wary of Liverpool 0

Arsenal host Liverpool tonight at the Emirates Stadium looking for another win to kick-start their Premier League title challenge.

In the Premier League era, Liverpool and Arsenal have been very equally matched, with the Reds claiming 16 wins over the Gunners, compared to Arsenal’s 15 and incredibly there also being 15 draws.

The side from north London have a slightly better record in the games on home soil, but they must still be wary of the Merseysider’s. The likes Philippe Coutinho and Christian Benteke definitely have the quality to hurt the Gunners at the back if not well marshalled.

Liverpool hosts Arsenal at Anfield on Sunday, as the home side look to move up the Premier League table.

The Reds have experienced a difficult campaign and are currently 11th in the Premier League table. Brendan Rodgers team suffered a 3-0 defeat against arch-rivals Manchester United last time out in the league, but defeated Bournemouth 3-1 in the Capital One Cup quarter-final on Wednesday night.

Despite their recent poor run of form, the Merseysider’s have suffered just defeat in their last six games in all competitions, although their record against the Gunners in recent seasons is poor, having claimed just two wins from the last 14 meetings between the two sides.

Liverpool there for the taking for Arsenal 0

On Sunday Arsenal visit Liverpool’s Anfield, which is not traditionally an easy ground to visit for opposition teams. The Gunners suffered a 5-1 drubbing at the famous old ground last season that seriously derailed their Premier League title hopes.


However, this Liverpool side is a far less potent outfit than the one who blow away the Gunners in last season’s encounter. They no longer have their dynamic striking duo of Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge up front for a start and look far less threatening this campaign.

Arsenal’s 3-0 defeat at Everton on Sunday must have been painful to watch at times for Gunners fans. The win put Everton within a point of the Gunners in the Premier League table, with a game in-hand, a situation that could not have been foreseen a few months ago.

Easier fixtures

Everton could go above the men from north London with a draw at Sunderland on Saturday, while Arsene Wenger’s men face Wigan in the FA Cup semi-final. On current form you would certainly not bet against the Toffees picking up at least a point at the bottom of the table Black Cats.
