You can’t deny that Arsenal are enjoying a good season – regardless of whether they actually end up winning the Premier League title or not. The team seems more united, they are enjoying playing together and, for the first time in a while, the defence has been sorted out, which is giving us real chances in games. However, as we enter the business end of the campaign, although the team is well settled, I think it’s time we made a change to our attack – by giving Serge Gnabry more of a chance in matches. The German has shown flashes of real quality in his.
Saturday’s 6-3 defeat to Manchester City showed exactly where Arsenal are lacking, especially against the big guns and also demonstrated how much hard work needs to be done if the Gunners are going to go on and upset the Titan Bet football betting odds by winning the title this season. At 1-1 just before the break, the game was finely poised before Laurent Koscielny was taken off injured while trying to stop Alvaro Negredo’s scoring City’s second and the Frenchman now looks set for a spell on the sidelines after picking-up a nasty gash
Eyes on the prize: The World Cup
It was always going to be dramatic, and the World Cup draw delivered with some superb matches and groups selected. The most eye catching, after all the talk and hype was over, was England being thrown into a group of death with Ururguay, Italy and Costa Rica. Not only are they tough matches, but the matches will take place in areas of Brazil with high humidty, meaning the Three Lions face a real challenge to go through. Spain, the were thrown in with Holland, Chile and Australia in a tricky contest that will throw up some exciting games early o
It’s the question on every Arsenal fan’s lips, and no doubt on the players and staff’s minds too: can the Gunners hold their nerve and make it to the Champions’ League knockout stages?
Five points clear, a stellar midfield, in-form striker and a settled defence – this is the season to be cheerful for Gunners' fans. But ask pretty much any of them and they'll firmly shake their head when asked the question 'So Arsenal, going to win the league this season?' And that pessimism is backed up by the bookies. There are two main external reasons for all this doom and gloom, spelled C-H-E-L-S-E-A and M-A-N C-I-T-Y respectively. And there's an even larger internal one – Arsenal haven't looked like a title-winning side since Patr
Hackney Marshes is one of the most infamous parts of London – with its long history of being the breeding ground for some of English football's greatest ever players. David Beckham and Bobby Moore have both trained on the Marshes before going on to captain England, while countless other players have used the turf as a means of carving out a career. But Hackney Marshes could soon became famous for something else – after Mysterious Circles appeared in recent days. The giant spheres arrived earlier this week, along with hundreds of mini ones,
Star man: Aaron Ramsey
Arsene Wenger has been at the helm at Arsenal for an amazing 17 years now, and thanks to his team’s amazing performance is able to celebrate this landmark leading the Premier League. And the man behind the surge of brilliance is Aaron Ramsey, who has finally come back from his injuries and is proving Wenger was right to have such faith in him. Ramsey was beleaguered by a broken leg he sustained three years ago when being tackled by Stoke City’s Ryan Shawcross. It’s taken a long time for the 22 year old midfielder from Wales to recover but
At the time of writing, you can have a go on the Gunners to land the title with the major bookies at around 8-1. That seems pretty good value. OK, you may be derisorily guffawing at the prospect; sad though that may be. But ask yourself who will win the Premier League if we don’t? Obviously, we have four major contenders – five if you dare to count those at the Lane whose name shall not be spoken. But here’s the thing; they’ve all got problems. First off, Chelsea are favourites but don’t like anything like the real deal of old as yet
There’s no shortage of celebrity admirers of the Arsenal; from legendary music performers Mick Jagger and Jay-Z, to sports stars including Lewis Hamilton and Ian Poulter. However, with an estimated 27,000,000 fans world-wide, there’s a few faces who we may have overlooked. Introducing 5 of our fellow Gooners you may not have known about: Hugh Laurie Although not as publically forth-coming in his love of the beautiful game as fellow Blackadder star Stephen Fry, Hugh Laurie, who git global celebrity status for his portrayal of the enigmatic D
