Is this Manchester City’s third shirt for the 2013-14 season? Or perhaps is it their away shirt, or none of them? It’s difficult to say, but the newly leaked photo could either be the real deal or a fake. The uniquely designed shirt certainly incorporates colors that Manchester City have […]

What are your memories of your first European Championship? For me, it was UEFA 80 (or Europa 80), as they were called back then. I was 10 years old, and — to be honest — I don’t remember much from the tournament itself. I remember watching as many games as I could […]
For once Arsene Wenger got angry. Or so at least say his players, as they point to his halftime talk as a motivator for coming from a goal down to beat Liverpool 2-1 at Anfield. Apparently, he told his players they didn’t deserve to wear the Arsenal shirt, which surprised them, as well as those familiar with the Frenchman’s tendency to coddle his players.

Actually, make that two goals, as the Reds also could have had a penalty after William Gallas upended Steven Gerrard in front of goal.

Many Arsenal fans took to Twitter to vent following their team’s 1-1 draw against 16th placed Norwich City. The consensus among the majority of Gunners supporters was “title-winning teams don’t play like that.” While it was certainly a lackluster performance from the Gunners, championship clubs do, in fact, have hiccups. […]
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp believes Swansea should stick with their under-pressure manager Garry Monk. Klopp’s side moved into the Premier League’s top six with a nervy 1-0 victory over the Swans at Anfield. The result means that Monk’s side, who were fourth at the end of August, are only four […]
