Bundesliga Talk at related • 0 views

One question that often pops up in the English football themed chatter that I have with my mates in the pub is "Which country should we go to, to watch a football game?" Whenever this has been posed in the past, the answer that we usually settle on before our plans ultimately fizzle out due to lack of funds or the inability to get the time off work, is Germany.

Fight for the Right: Norwich Prematch

Today an acquaintance asked after Arsenal's weekend opponents. After I explained the significance of this afternoon's match he said "why worry, it is only a football game." Firstly, this shows a total misunderstanding of the Raddy psyche, but more to the point, it indicates a lack of understanding of the nature of importance.

Preparing for the all important Manchester derby next Monday, Manchester City's manager, Roberto Mancini, once again tried to take away the pressure out of his players by playing down the importance of getting all three points.

Although it's clear that winning the game means City would be taking Manchester United's place at the top of table, Mancini simply said that next Monday's clash with United is just the same as previous Manchester derby.

Here we are again, people. I know it's been a while but another howler of a decision by a refereeing crew in England today in a massively important football game has again thrust the issue of video technology onto the front burner again worldwide. Premier League referee Martin Atkinson ruled that Chelsea had scored following a frantic goalmouth scramble to take the lead in their FA Cup Semi Final at Wembley Stadium, London against Tottenham.

Wenger: No such thing as momentum

Premiership Talk Blog at related • 0 views

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger slammed his side's performance in the 2-1 loss to QPR yesterday and suggested that displays such as that prove that the value of momentum is overrated in modern football.

The Gunners had won seven straight Premier League fixtures arriving into Loftus Road to face the relegation-threatened Rangers and from the very early stages, it was clear that the visitors were not in their best form.

It was a unquestionably a good effort by everybody involved, but it looked like Arsenal eventually ran out of gas in the second half on their dramatic, edge-of-the-seat 3-0 win over Serie A leaders AC Milan. Both teams missed excellent chances to score and this game could have ended up about 6-2 if the chances were taken.

The one all draw seems to have satisfied most fans, though there will always be those who believe that isn't a good enough result: usually the same people who decided months ago that England weren't even going to get past the group stages.

That was poor. It was not even against a good Milan side in my opinion and that makes it all the more depressing. It has to be said that 4-0 was in no way a fair reflection of the football game though, we thoroughly deserved to lose but not by that margin. Nothing really dropped for us tonight and it all combined to see us go down by a heavy scorelines, and surely out of the Champions League,
