Remembering Hillsborough 0

Posted on April 15, 2019 by Harry Kettle

Football has had a lot of dark days throughout the course of its history, but April 15th, 1989 was one of the worst. On that day 96 football fan went to a game and never came home again, with today marking the 30th anniversary of the tragedy. In truth, there’s nothing we can really say that you haven’t heard before regarding just how much of an impact this has had on the football world – and Liverpool Football Club – in the last three decades.

Instead, we’re just going to share this poem, and with it, we remember all of those who lost their lives. We will never forget.

Arsenal face a major challenge later today, as the Gunners visit reigning champions Manchester City. The Citizens have slipped up in a number of games in recent months which has saw them fall five points behind league leaders Liverpool.

City may have slipped up on the odd occasion this season, but they are still formidable opponents. The fact that the Citizens cannot afford to take their foot of the gas makes the task even harder for Arsenal.

The Etihad is a fortress

Manchester City have turned the Etihad Stadium into a fortress in recent season. The Citizens are currently on a run of 12 wins from their last 13 home games in the Premier League.

The weird and sometimes wonderful world of football changes and evolves many times throughout the course of your standard season, and that’s particularly true when you’re an Arsenal fan. The Gunners have been up, they’ve been down and they’ve been all around, and now, they’re kind of positioned right where everyone was expecting them to be.

Emery needs funds – Wright 0

Having spent six years with Crystal Palace, Ian Wright joined Arsenal in 1991, where he would spend the following seven seasons. He made a total of 288 appearances and scored 185 goals in all competitions for the Gunners, and many consider him to be a true Arsenal legend. Currently working as a television pundit for BBC, BT Sport and ITV Sport, the former striker spoke his mind about what he saw on Saturday at Anfield.

Wright was far from impressed by the individual displays in various areas of the pitch, and it is his belief that Arsenal need to acquire upgrades on three or four members of the team that started the game against Liverpool.

Arsenal v Fulham Premier League Preview 0

Posted on December 31, 2018 by David Nugent

On Tuesday afternoon, Arsenal host Fulham at the Emirates Stadium, as the Gunners look to get back to winning ways in the Premier League.

The Gunners have been inconsistent of late in the Premier League. In fact, Unai Emery’s side has won just one of their last four league games. Last time out in the top-flight, the home side suffered a 5-1 mauling at Liverpool.

The defeat at Anfield means that the side from north London has kept just one clean sheet in their last 13 Premier League outings. Both teams have also scored in 12 of their previous 13 league matches.

Liverpool 5-1 Arsenal: Perspective 0

Arsenal were thoroughly beaten at Anfield on Saturday. The joy that Ainsley Maitland-Niles gave the supporters was extremely short-lived. It took Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino just seven minutes to completely turn the game around, and the hosts never looked back.

The good

All things considered, it has to be said that the result belies the game somewhat. It may feel strange to hear (or say for that matter), but Arsenal played some very good football against Liverpool. A few players put in excellent individual performances.

Did Arsenal’s heavy defeat at Liverpool really surprise anybody? 0

When I read back my article for yesterday, I felt like I was maybe bigging Liverpool up slightly too much. However, I published it anyway, as it seemed to be the right thing to do at the time.

It turns out after the Merseysiders hammered the Gunners 5-1 that my opinion of Liverpool’s attack was rather understated. Jurgen Klopp’s team produced a devastating attacking display helped by a terrible defensive display to record a comfortable victory.

Major defensive concerns

I understand that the Gunners have some injury concerns and Liverpool are explosive going forward. However, their defensive display at Anfield was nothing short of embarrassing.

Gunners have their work cut out at Anfield 0

Arsenal head to face in-form league leaders Arsenal later today. The game will be a massive test of the Gunners newfound resolve under Spanish boss Unai Emery. Liverpool are unbeaten this season in the Premier League and the Merseysiders are now six points clear at the top of the table. Jurgen Klopp’s side are truly formidable opponents at the moment.

A potential defensive crisis

Despite an improvement in form since Emery’s arrival, the Gunners defence has still looked vulnerable this season. At times, they have been lucky and probably should have conceded more goals.

On Saturday evening, Arsenal face a tough trip to Merseyside to face Premier League leaders Liverpool at Anfield.

Liverpool are now unbeaten in their 19 Premier League games this season. The Merseysiders good run of form has seen Jurgen Klopp’s side go six points clear of second place Tottenham at the top of the table.

Last time out Liverpool recorded a 4-0 home win over Newcastle. The game against the Magpies saw the Reds score at least two goals for the fifth consecutive league. It also means that Liverpool have kept clean sheets in three of their last four league outings.

After a disappointing Boxing Day result away to Brighton and Hove Albion, Arsenal travel to face Liverpool on Saturday in what is set to be a hard test for manager Unai Emery and his men.

It’s fair to say the Gunners gave the league leaders a good game at the Emirates earlier in the season and were arguably even the better team, but it’s also fair to admit that the disallowed goal scored by Sadio Mane in that game should have stood.
