Arsenal and Liverpool Gives Premiership A Much Needed Shot in the Arm

Sunday’s win by Arsenal over Manchester United was the best thing that could have happened to the Premiership. You can hear it in the podosphere and read it in the blogs and message forums. People are actually getting really excited about the Premier League all of a sudden.While there have been several highlights during the season, I can count the number of classic matches on one hand. Even though Arsenal’s match on Sunday wasn’t a classic, it definitely made me — for the first time in weeks — jump out of my seat near the climatic end (and no, I’m not an Arsenal fan nor am I a Man United hater).Sure, right now, the Premiership title is Man United’s to lose. But speak to any Arsenal or Liverpool fan, and you’ll hear their excitement in the voice. Many of them believe they have a fighting chance of challenging for the top two positions.

    The last ten minutes of the game at Emirates was some of the most exciting football of the year for me personally. The recored crowd and hype coming in with chelsea losing gave an even more interest for lads watching around the world. I think ManU still has the cup chase on hand but arsenal may sneak close with a few more wins and only 12 points behing league leaders.

    The Premier League this season is thrilling to say the least. Yeah, there are always games between the “lumberjack” teams and goalscoring was a problem earlier in the season.
    However, the title race is heating up. The big games this weekend were great, and you have Liverpool and Arsenal with some hopes of doing better than 3/4 th place.
    Realistically, it is a two-horse race and with Terry, Carvalho, and Cech coming back, the Blues won’t be as toothless as they were at “Anfiled”.
    United-yes-the title is their to lose, but they have yet to visit Chelsea, Liverpool, and Tottenham, I believe.
    I think the fun of watching the EPL is about to begin. The leadres will be dropping points. Questions is: who will have the nerves and the consistency tosurvive the last 14 games.

    I look forward to a follow-up on that article suggesting Arsenal should trade Henry.

    What? There won’t be one? Shocking! ;)

    As for the league, I think this is as close as it gets, though I hope I’m wrong.
