How Emirates matches up to PL’s biggest stadiums – Part 2 0

Posted on June 12, 2019 by Harry Kettle

City of Manchester Stadium – 55,017

They call it a tinpot ground and while we’d like to give City fans the benefit of the doubt, we just can’t. It feels a little bit soulless there and bizarrely enough, that was also the case before they were even taken over. Perhaps it was a foreshadowing of some sort.

Anfield – 54,074

It’s not in a great area and the stadium itself isn’t all that impressive, but the atmosphere, especially on European nights, makes you forget about all of that. It’s just a really special place to watch a game of football and the only people you’ll find to disagree with that probably spend their days at Old Trafford or Goodison.

We aren’t going to pretend like we know all of the behind the scenes details from the summer transfer window, because that isn’t even remotely close to being the truth. We know about as much as the average person could ever hope to, and we can only really base our thoughts and opinions off of what we see being released on a day to day basis.

English dominance in Europe once again? 0

Posted on May 08, 2019 by Harry Kettle

After what we saw last night it’s kind of hard not to feel a sense of pride for English clubs in Europe again, regardless of who it is you support. When teams in England are doing well it seems to create a ripple effect, which positively impacts the Premier League as a whole (and the lower leagues). In general the top flight of English football has always been viewed as the best league in the world, but now, it really does seem like we’re starting to get confirmation of that.

It goes beyond words 0

Football sometimes leaves you without all that much to say, purely because what you’ve just seen doesn’t even seem real. It doesn’t seem feasible, and it seems like a dream (or a nightmare depending on your position on the matter). Last night that happened once again when Liverpool came from 3-0 down on aggregate to defeat Barcelona, booking their place in the 2019 UEFA Champions League final for the second consecutive year.

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 up against it at Manchester City 0

Posted on February 03, 2019 by David Nugent

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.

A look back at the last six in review – Part 1 0

Posted on January 24, 2019 by Harry Kettle

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

Posted on December 31, 2018 by Veselin Trajkovic

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

Posted on December 30, 2018 by Veselin Trajkovic

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.
