When looking at the way Arsenal filled up Wembley for a very big part I really couldn't understand the decision from the FA to only give some 25.000 ticket to Arsenal. I don't know how many tickets will be given to Hull but I can imagine that this will be the same [...]

It's Cup final season, so in the spiritual sense every game is a cup final. This one is no different, aside from it being a little different from your classic cup final. What it is though, is a nice chance to size each other up before Wembley.

Hull City are one of the few struggling [...]

All goals count. Tap ins, and lobs from inside your own half, they all just count as one goal.

Which is why it is always worth considering the total number of goals your centre forward scores.

But we also know that it takes a bit of time for newly purchased centre forwards [.

Despite me not being the tactical wizard that will give you all the pro's and the con's of a 4-4-2 compared to a 3-5-2 or a 4-5-1 formation I do like to throw a stone in the water from time to time and give you something to think about.

The way the media has been trying to give Özil a failure tag is amazing. After Arsenal had stunned the whole world that they had been able to sign him they had to stop the mantra they had been using for the last years: Arsenal (and Wenger of course) doesn't want to [...]

This isn't to say that they are transformed and reformed, and they are still intent on trading with the Slave State of Qatar, but there have been moves.

First the banning of Barcelona from making transfers, then the [.

My perception of noise in the emirates stadium is always a bit biased because I sit in the north bank the noisiest part of the stadium. But I sit in the upper tier, which traditionally is less vocal, so that bias is reduced a little. What's more I sit above Red [...]

After having played a long semi final on Saturday evening the main question would be how the legs would react to the fatigue. So it was no real surprise to see a lot of changes in the team. Half the team to be exact.
