Newcastle do not have a good record against Arsenal and we have lost the last seven meetings, and we haven beaten Arsenal since November, 2010 when Chris Houghton was manager. That was at the Emirates, when we took them apart1-0, with a headed goal from Andy Carroll just before the half time break.

Arsene Wenger In Praise Of Newcastle

Newcastle have lost the last seven games against Arsenal, but hope reigns supreme at the moment, and we seem to be in some decent form. If Florian Thauvin can have a good game against a team who wanted to sign him three years ago we could even do the seemingly impossible and win this [...]

The Liver Bird at related • 1 view

After picking up a well earned point at the Emirates on Monday evening Liverpool must now welcome fellow Londoners West Ham to Anfield on Saturday. It's fair to say that the Hammers have had a mixed start to life in the Premier League under Bilic, so can the Reds collect all three points?
Liverpool have a few injury woes to contend with going into the game.

This Could Be Newcastle’s Strongest Side Against Arsenal

With the last two games producing very good performances from two very different Newcastle sides, against Manchester United and Northampton Town Steve McClaren will have a difficult job deciding what the teamshould be for Saturday's early kick-off game at home to Arsenal.

Liverpool travel to London on Monday evening as they prepare to face Arsenal in their third fixture of the season. The Reds have picked up two wins out of two whilst the Gunners have won just one game having lost their opening tie against West Ham. Will a stumbling start from Wenger's side assist the Reds or is it going to be the same old story at the Emirates?

In our polls on the result of our first two games, the majority of fans thought we would win both games at home to Southampton and away at Swansea. We didn't win either, and maybe little bit of reality has set in, and our next couple of games are certainly very tough. They are [...]

We would be very surprised if Steve McClaren doesn't start the same team tomorrow that started against Southampton that did quite well last Sunday until the last 15 minutes when we seemed to tire, and also didn't helpourselves by giving the ball away too much. Those are two areas Steve McClaren will be looking for [.

No longer will you have to spend time with your children, visit your parents or pretend to love your partner. Football returns to take us away from the realities of life.

In a week that Raheem Sterling's agent decided to call Jamie Carragher "a knob" I fear this match preview may be pretty pointless. As we spiral into an ever expanding transfer saga with one of our most talented yet egotistical players I seriously wish I could just skip the endless weeks of rumours ahead.

Brendan Rodgers takes his Liverpool side to Hull on Tuesday and whilst there is sure to be eleven players on the pitch, it's uncertain how many will be in the stands. A boycott organised by Spirit of Shankly in response to the ridiculous variance in ticket prices for supporters travelling to Hull this season means there could be a lot of empty seats.

United vs Newcastle: New manager same old Toon?

Red Rants at related • 0 views

In a world where a grown man will hand one of the most respected managers in world football a piece of paper giving him advice on how to run one of the biggest clubs in the world it is easy to understand how atrocities happen in this world.

People really are awful.

The transfer period is one of the worst things about football and it is sad that the expensive signing of marquee players is more important to a great number of people than the actual kicking of a football.

United and the Brucey bonus

Red Rants at related • 0 views

No one likes rolling over and having their tummies tickled quite like Steve Bruce. Ever since the United legend took over at Hull,any fixture against the Tigers has always gone down as a free three points. A Brucey bonus.

Realistically, United managers could have played Hellen Keller in net, with a back four made up of the Different Strokes cast, including Gary Coleman and still come away with a decent result.

The end of an era. A true legend will no longer grace us with his presence. The corridors of life will feel a little more hollow each week as he slowly becomes a faded memory. A truly spectacular send off for an inspiration to us all. The world is going to miss BB King.

The giants of Crystal Palace did everything they could to honour the late great King yesterday by spoiling the party for a man who has never really appreciated music.

Manchester United kick off the Premier League season for a second consecutive year but will be hoping for a better result than 12 months ago when Swansea City took three points away from Old Trafford in Louis van Gaal's first match in charge.

Tottenham Hotspur are the visitors this season, thrashed 3-0 by the Red Devils in this fixture only five months ago.
