I don't think it is too harsh on Arsenal and Arsene Wenger to say that the win away to Sunderland was a bit on the lucky side. The Gunners did score twice and keep a rare clean sheet, but that was mostly down to the poor performance of the home side rather than any real [...]
I must admit that I am very surprised at the Arsenal starting line-up for the Premier League clash with Sunderland at the Stadium of Light. It smacks of extreme caution to me, when I expected the Frenchman to try to build on the midweek win and take advantage of the low confidence that the Black [...
Although Aaron Ramsey and Mikel Arteta are back from their respective injuries, and Serge Gnabry and Theo Walcott will soon be featuring in Arsenal matches, Laurent Koscielny's injury appears to be a bit more serious than first expected. The central defender returned to London while on international duty earlier in the month because of an achilles injury.
A traditional 3pm kick-off today, and what I'd give for a traditional one nil to the Arsenal. Don't get me wrong, I'd take a 2-0, a 3-1, a 4-3 or any shape of win, but a clean sheet would be nice given how often we've conceded this season.
The team news is that Jack Wilshere misses out through suspension having picked up five yellow cards, and I think Mikel Arteta will come into the midfield for him.
Wonderful news from weekend last as Woolwich saw off the challenge of European titans Hull City Tigers. Hull, lest we forget, are twelve time winners of the European Cup, 37 time winners of the English Premier League, and due to administrative error have won La Liga fifteen times, Serie A 80 times since the Boer War and Ligue 1 so many times that every Hull City Tigers fan is automatically given the Ordre national de la Légion d'honneur.

Rolando Aarons came on in the second half of the home game against Crystal Palace on 30th August, and turned the game around with an excellent goal from a header, and then an assist, and Newcastle were leading 3-2 going into an incredible seven minutes of stoppage time added on by the referee. Rolando Aarons [.

Pahang win 6-3 on aggregate and will defend their title in the 2014 Malaysia Cup Final against either Johor Darul Takzim or Felda United. For the neutral, ie me, it would have been great to have seen two sides from the Premier League but like anywhere else money talks and both Pahang and JDT do have wealthy backers.
After an eye opening game against Real Madrid midweek, Liverpool will certainly be looking to show those watching what they are really capable of. With the tie coming so quickly after a Champions League game though and with a relatively thin squad, you have to wonder how this will pan out for Brendan Rodgers on Saturday.
