Arsenal’s Theo Walcott urged to better himself with transfer move

Just Arsenal at related • 0 views
Ian Wright and Darren Bent have both claimed that Theo Walcott should leave Arsenal Football Club. The forward has fallen down the pecking order in recent years, and has been limited to only three substitute outings in the Premier League so far this term. Walcott has been enjoying regular appearances in the Europa League and [.

Seven good minutes enough for Arsenal

Arsenal Insider at related • 0 views

Three goals in seven second half minutes that's all it took for Arsenal to win a game in which they were otherwise unimpressive. While the comeback was miraculous and the result crucial, many problems still remain.

As has been the case for the last month or so, Arsenal started at a pedestrian pace.

This saturday we get in to the 5th gameweek in Fantasy Premier League. Two really interesting matches this week. Manchester City plays the host for Arsenal, and Tottenham and ManU go against each other in Tottenham's homefield. City - Arsenal will be especially interesting as the team with the least conceded goals ( Man City, 0) and the team that's scored most goals (Arsenal, 11 goals) compete which is more important, to score many goals or to concede little.

Spurs - Sunderland Preview: Consecutive Wins? Why The Devil Not?

One point, three games. Generally the solution at AANP Towers when things are not quite tickety-boo is to drink plenty of water and wait it out. In extreme circumstances we have even been known to chew on some raw garlic. However, something a little more drastic will probably be required from our heroes tonight, to shake them from the alarming torpor that characterized Saturday's performance.

Yesterday's result at Anfield has seen a lot of chatter around this and other Blogs, mostly negative and mostly about Liverpool. However, two teams played yesterday and after an odd set-back (for my money you kick a ball when it's still you've taken the free-kick) Sunderland were Liverpool's equals.

Not exactly sure what the lyrics are to the Champions League anthem (the telly-box at AANP Towers can only ever pick up unspecifiable high-pitched warbling, until that final chorus of "The Chaaaaaampions") but while watching this midweek's shenanigans, AANP dreamt the dream – the dream that next season I would not just try to fathom the lyrics from the comfort of my living-room, but actually at the Lane.

Spurs 2-0 Sunderland: Keane’s Contract & Darren Bent’s Twitter Revenge

A curious one, this. Back in the days of yore, when Luka Modric limped off against Birmingham, I don't think anyone foresaw things panning out quite this way. Robbie Keane undroppable, wingers treated like lepers, long-ball upon long-ball. We're muddling through, but the sooner both the Croatian genius and Lennon return, the better.

Are we a club in crisis? While I hate to disappoint the doom-mongers and mischievous press-men, it is a little too hasty to go down that route just yet.

Come the full-time whistle we ought to have a clearer idea of where we stand. Naturally, this being White Hart Lane, moderation is not welcome.

A bad day at the office, is sometimes known as a ´blip´. I assume that this is a PR ointment designed to soothe the wounds sustained after a public humiliation. Both phrases have been uttered by the players and manager this week and I have used it myself on occasions to keep my spirits up after a loss or a disappointing performance.

Controversies played a major part in the game, as Sunderland came off strong at the Stadium of Lights against a Liverpool side, which was without the services of Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres.

Bolton Wanderers 0 – 1 Sunderland – 15th August – Bent on form for Bruce

Record signing Darren Bent proved to be the difference on Steve Bruce's first game as Sunderland manager.

Bent, who cost £10m from spurs this summer, opened the scoring in only the 5th minute and should really have had a few more as Sunderland dominated the encounter. Gary Megson will be unhappy with his sides performance as Sunderland contained any Bolton attacking threat with relative ease; indeed a fantastic save by Fulop which denied Gary Cahill was the closest Bolton came to equalizing.

'sorry? (...) yeah shut the **** up.'

That wasn't really what I was expecting to be honest. Despite notable absences from the Sunderland side, and to a certain extent a lack of bite in our midfield today's game was one that we won't be forgetting for a while. It's safe to say that it was somewhat of an aggressive affair with both sides putting boots where perhaps they shouldn't have been and this incision found its way into the general scheme of play.

A new season, and to all intents and purposes the same serving of near-incessant pressure against a well-drilled defensive mob – but we at AANP Towers are nothing if not eagle-eyed, and the subtle differences being paraded to the masses yesterday did not escape detection.

There was the giant hole in the stadium for a start, which those with less keen powers of observation might simply have overlooked, or dismissed as one of those things that happens during the summer months.
