Why this season has shown that talent isn't everything unless you're a striker by KJ This season has been an odd one, Arsenal fans.

Liverpool Football Club have released new designs for the planned expansion of Anfield.
The regeneration of Anfield will see £260million invested into the local community as well as creating hundreds of jobs. The club will submit the new plans to the Liverpool City Council this summer. And if approved, construction will start next year and would be completed in time for the 2016-17 season.
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has threatened to rest key players for his club's game against Liverpool at Anfield this Sunday. If Mourinho follows through on his promise, his actions will undoubtedly anger Manchester City supporters as they may feel that Chelsea will wreck City's best chance to win the league if Chelsea can defeat Liverpool this weekend.
Normally, you would safely say that any team which had been beaten 6-0, 5-1 and 6-3, like Arsenal were, in the same season, had a serious problem with their defense. But that is not really the case with the Gunners. If you take way those 17 goals in three games, Arsenal have only conceded 24 [...]

Chelsea plan shock move for Arsenal defender - originally posted on Soccerlens.com
Chelsea are lining up a shock move for Arsenal defender Thomas Vermaelen in the summer according to reports in the Guardian.
We had earlier reported that the Belgian is well on the radar of Italian side Napoli as he has fallen down the pecking order at Arsenal thanks to mercurial rise of the centre back defensive partnership of Laurent Koscielny and Per Mertesacker.
"Here it comes, here it comes, here it comes, here it comes
Here comes your nine-teenth nervous breakdown."
As soccer continues it's "invasion" of American shores, I find it fit to pay tribute to the original British Invasion of the 1960s. Just like the Barclays Premier League, the Rolling Stones are synonymous with English culture.
Liverpool in typical heart stopping fashion managed to collect another vital three points at Norwich on Sunday as they eventually won the game 3-2. A quick start for the Reds set a precedent for the game before Norwich slowly began to gain a foothold and pushed Liverpool right to the wire. Goals from Sterling and Suarez ensured Liverpool remained at the top of the table with just three games left.
Liverpool star Lucas Leiva feels the absence of striker Daniel Sturridge and midfielder Jordan Henderson will not affect the club's race to the title. Brendan Rodgers' side are leading the Premier League table, five points ahead of second-placed Chelsea and are close to winning the title after almost 24 years after they beat Norwich City 3-2 on Sunday.
Boss Brendan Rodgers says it is important Liverpool keep their feet on the ground as they prepare for a huge game against Chelsea. The Reds took another step closer to their first Premier League title as they defeated Norwich 3-2 at Carrow Road, but Rodgers says they cannot get carried away. England World Cup hopeful Raheem Sterling scored twice and Uruguay hitman Luis Suarez broke the 30-goal barrier as the Reds moved five points clear of Chelsea, who they host at Anfield next weekend.
Is Raheem Sterling the best young player in Europe? - originally posted on Soccerlens.com
Of course his club manager wants to give him lavish praise, and why shouldn't he? Brendan Rodgers has handled the young phenomenon of Raheem Sterling with accomplished skill, and the Liverpool manager will be astute enough to recognise a player who will respond positively to such public accolade, but with the 19 year old yet to take part in any European fixture, and just a couple of international caps to his name, is Rodgers' claim a little too ‘out there' certainly for the moment at least.
As we hurtle ever quicker to a world in which Liverpool and their favourite racist, Luis Suarez, become Premier League champions for the first time ever, there are several things that you might wish to consider. The first, most obvious one, is suicide if you're dead, you can't hear You'll Never Walk Alone, for instance.
Whereas they're not the finished article by any means, a set of renderings showing one of the final-ish designs for the proposed redevelopment of Anfield have been leaked this week, showing just how John Henry and his posse intend to boost Liverpool's current 45,000-seater home up to a capacity approaching 60,000 in 2018 or so.
Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge have grabbed the headlines for Liverpool this season, but Brendan Rodgers also has two of his other forwards to thank for his side's five-point advantage at the top of the Barclays Premier League. Fabio Borini and Oussama Assaidi were both shipped out of the club on loan last summer after moving to Anfield a year earlier and, despite not playing for Rodgers' side this season, both have had their say on the title race with key goals against Chelsea.
Inevitably, Celtic cantered their way to a third successive SPFL tile win, with the ribbons on the trophy before March was out. A midweek win at Firhill formally secured what has been expected all season, although despite the expected nature of the success, Neil Lennon remains adamant that there are still ambitions to fulfil at Parkhead.
I have been thinking about Jose's idea of a weaker team to face Liverpool on Sunday and have come up with the starting eleven that I believe we could see at Anfield. I am interested in reading your opinions.
Now we have to take plenty of things into consideration here. Suspensions for the second leg, people that are likely to miss out and players who need a game based on the fact that Jose Mourinho would already be thinking of his best eleven for Wednesday night.
Much of the talk after the game and I am sure in days to come will be of the comments made by Jose Mourinho in relation to Chelsea's trip to Anfield, just three days before the second leg of our Champions League semi final with Atletico Madrid.
The manager revealed that Chelsea had requested with the Premier League and Liverpool Football Club to bring the game forward in assist our aim of reaching the final of the Champions League, giving us an additional day to recover and that was denied by both parties.
Well, it's been an interesting Easter weekend for David Moyes. First he was stared down by the Grim Reaper at Goodison Park, and now his sacking is confirmed. We'll be taking a look at what's gone wrong for the Scotsman, and who the Red Devils can turn to next.
Liverpool is one of five clubs considering a summer swoop for Udinese forward Luis Muriel. The striker's representative last week revealed the Colombia international is open to offers having struggled for a regular first-team role this term.
