It’s a Ten-Men Weekend.

It has been awhile since I last published blog posts about football, particularly because Arsenal hasn’t been doing very well for themselves in the league and I have no reason to toot the horn for them. Then again, the other teams haven’t been doing very well lately either. But this is not why I’m here….

EPL 2016: Arsenal vs. Chelsea.

This season alone has seen Arsenal falling at the hands of Chelsea at both the Stamford Bridge and at the Emirates Stadium. And both times, Diego Costa had played a role in eliminating the Gunners, and had a hand in influencing players in getting sent off. Last year, the Brazilian-born Spanish striker was involved in…

EPL 2015: Liverpool vs. Arsenal.

In typical Gunner fashion, the match between Arsenal and Liverpool ended in a draw. A 3-3 draw. While I’m thankful it wasn’t a goalless draw, as a fan, I was hoping and praying it was a win instead. Then again, which fan wouldn’t want their club to win? For one, Arsenal are on course to…

EPL 2015: Arsenal vs. Manchester City.

Goals from Theo Walcott and Olivier Giroud ensured that Arsenal remains in second place with 36 points, two and four points behind surprise Premier League leaders Leicester City (38 points) and third-placed Manchester City (32 points), respectively. Spurs are fourth with 29 points while Manchester United has slipped to fifth place, also with 29 points….

EPL 2015: Arsenal vs. Sunderland.

Arsenal’s sketchy performances almost continued after an own goal was scored to Sunderland’s advantage. Many of the Arsenal fans want the club players to stop scoring for the opposition. We want to be scoring for our own team and our own progress, not for the benefit of others and contributing to their progress! Arsene Wenger…

EPL 2015: Norwich City vs Arsenal.

BARCLAY’S PREMIER LEAGUE MATCH UPDATE: ARSENAL‘s midfield maestro Mesut Ozil scored the only goal in the Gunners’ 1-1 draw against Norwich City on early Monday morning, 12:30am Malaysian time. The two clubs share the spoils of the match as Arsenal failed to perform after a string of injuries left their key players mostly on the…

EPL 2015: What’s Shakin’ This Weekend.

The Barclay’s Premier League returns this weekend after a host of Champions League matches played throughout the week. The results clocked in for four of the big English clubs left critics wondering which club has what it takes to finish the season in first place. Previous table-toppers Manchester City slumped to a 1-0 defeat by Juventus….

EPL 2015: West Brom vs. Arsenal.

As Arsene Wenger described it for the press, it was a ‘perfect nightmare’. Everything that came together on that fateful Saturday night was a recipe for disaster and a perfect nightmare. Poor passing. Poor defense. Missed opportunities. An own goal. Recurring injuries. A growing list of injuries. And a missed penalty. If Wenger was in…

EPL 2015: Arsenal vs Spurs.

Arsenal were made to fight hard for a draw last night in the North London derby against Tottenham Hotspurs. Sloppy defense in the first half enabled Harry Kane to take the lead for Spurs, but thankfully, Kieran Gibbs was lucky enough to rescue a point for the Gunners. Gibbs’ fluke shot hit the goalpost before…

EPL Review: Swansea vs. Arsenal

With 3 points on Saturday, Arsenal are proving themselves worthy Premier League title contenders this season. The club’s manager, Arsene Wenger, watched his men secure all 3 points from 3 brilliant goals scored by 3 different players in the second half against Swansea at the Liberty Stadium, while goalkeeper Petr Cech helped himself to yet…

EPL 2015: Leicester City vs Arsenal.

Can we say that Arsenal are back to their winning ways after clocking another victory after their mid week win against Spurs in the Capital One Cup? Can we base on just two victories and both in different competitions that Arsenal are back to their usual playing selves? Because the 5-2 victory over Leicester City…
