EPL Review: Leicester City Makes History after 132-Year Wait

A short blog post and update on the current English Premier League that is about to end very soon. Only one match left,and then it’ll be a long break before the entire transfer window saga starts again. The curtains for the 2015-2016 English Premier League is slowly being drawn now, with most clubs playing their…

EPL 2015: Aston Villa vs. Arsenal.

Olivier Giroud’s penalty and Aaron Ramsey’s cool finish gave Arsenal a comfortable 2-0 victory last night over Aston Villa, and propelled them to the top of the Premier League table. Level on points with the Gunners are Manchester City in second place, and Leicester City in third place and one game in hand. Manchester United…

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: Arsenal vs. Everton.

It was what every fan was dreaming of — their team scoring goal after goal, defeating rival after rival, week in, week out. It was what every critic needed, a prolific striker silencing the naysayers with the right substance. It was what every manager was hoping for — their players to shine when the time…

EPL 2015: Watford vs. Arsenal.

Arsenal continued to keep the heat up on Premier League leaders Manchester City with a well-played, and well-deserved 3-0 victory over Watford. Taking all three points from this match is crucial if they want to maintain second place and to ultimately seize top spot, if they can. Apparently, Santi Cazorla was the ‘Man of the…

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…

Of Art and Coffee in Genting Highlands.

Over the weekend, my husband and I made our way up to a place called Genting Highlands with a free room registered by my mum after collecting enough Genting Rewards points through her endless trips up to their casinos. We left on Friday afternoon, checked in at 3:00pm and spent the rest of the day…

Football Update: Three-Match Bans.

Is this a good time to say ‘case closed’? Will this be the end of the face-off or is it just the beginning? Here’s what transpired over the past three days and the result is as such. What I think of the whole fiasco is at the end of my post. UK Football Association: “Chelsea’s…

A Domino Effect.

Look, even in the licensed photo that I dug out from Google Images shows the same referee Mike Dean booking Arsenal’s Tomas Rosicky for a foul during a match against Chelsea in December 2013. It is not a coincidence that Dean is somewhat biased towards the Gunners and probably has a thing for Chelsea. I…

Petr Cech-s in for Arsenal.

Every tabloid, every newspaper, every form of media is singing the praises for Petr Cech, former Chelsea-turned-Arsenal goalkeeper. The 33 years old Czech Republic shot-stopper agreed to a long-term move to the Emirates Stadium from Stamford Bridge for an undisclosed fee. Rumour has it that the move was so he could be closer to his…

EPL 2015: Arsenal vs Crystal Palace.

Arsenal’s full-time match results of 2-1 over Crystal Palace imitates a similar situation back in February 2015, when the same 2-1 results catapulted them to third place in last season’s Premier League match. The goalscorer was the same, one and only, Olivier Giroud. In February 2015, Santi Cazorla was the second goalscorer. This time around,…

EPL 2015: First Match Flop.

I am honestly displeased and disappointed when the full-time whistle was blown and the score remained at 2-0 in the favour of West Ham United. I don’t hate West Ham for defeating Arsenal. They played well, and they played with such fervour and ferociousness that they had every right and reason to win. Arsenal, on…
