Arsenal And Divine Intervention

Thirty minutes before the Arsenal Liverpool game, my mate (a Liverpool fan) turns to me and tells me that we need a miracle to beat them. At the final whistle, he looks at me with a huge frown on his face and says that we had four. I personally don’t […]

Arsenal Take Advantage of Stumbling Liverpool

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. Perhaps that’s simply his belief in their abilities, but lacking sharpness can’t always be the reason his side drop points.

And the Gunners did lack sharpness, as they have since the loss of Robin van Persie. They did not play well in the first half, and if Torres had a few games under his belt to regain full match fitness, it could’ve easily been 1-0 to the Reds in the first fifteen minutes. Actually, make that two goals, as the Reds also could have had a penalty after William Gallas upended Steven Gerrard in front of goal.

Fan Diary #19 – Liverpool v. Arsenal: Pre-Match Thoughts

I’m more nervous about this Arsenal match than any other time I’ve awaited Liverpool taking on the Gunners. Well: outside of a European quarterfinal, anyway. It’s the context of this season that has me all wound up. The injuries. The results. The fall from the Champions League. With Liverpool following […]

When Will Owen Hargreaves Return To Manchester United?

It’s been a rough few months for Manchester United players as the rigors of competing in multiple competitions have taken their toll. Sir Alex Ferguson’s defensive dilemma has been well documented in recent weeks so weary eyes now turn to the almost 29-year-old Canadian born England and Manchester United midfielder, […]

EPL TV Ratings On ESPN2: Aug 15 to Dec 5, 2009

Maybe it was the World Cup Draw bounce or a nice lift from the previous weekend’s Manchester United game, but the Nielsen Ratings for last weekend’s match between Portsmouth and Burnley, far from being two popular teams in America, achieved the sixth highest rating of the 2009-2010 Premier League season […]
