PIRES: ARSENAL CAN TAKE ON TOTTENHAM

Robert Pires has recently come out to back Arsenal to take down Tottenham in their upcoming derby on Sunday.


The Gunners Legend is of the opinion that Arsenal make for a stronger team than rivals Chelsea and Tottenham.

Also, in what seems like an endorsement, Robert Pires has said that the Emirates stadium dwellers are ‘the best team in London’ and so therefore, there is definitely no reason why they can’t bring back the Premier League title this season to the Emirates Stadium.

Pires was amongst the last Gunners side that took the top-flight crown back during the 2003/04 season and since then, that squad has been known in football folklore as “The Invincibles.’

However, the 2016/17 squad will be unable to match that achievement as they have already lost one match. Yet, they are at present in second position on the table with 15 games unbeaten in all competitions so far. With the team’s high morale and momentum building, Arsenal seems to be in perfect shape for their derby game against North London rivals, the Spurs.

Pires believes in the Arsenal set-up, and has endorsed them to come out victorious. However, he sees this as one sterner test of the Gunners’ title credentials.

Arsene Wenger has surprisingly been approached by other clubs

For a manager that has been struggling so much to win major pieces of silverware in this past decade, it’s fairly remarkable and unexpected to find out that Arsene Wenger has actually been approached by other clubs and this is the case of the French tactician.


It has recently been revealed that the 66 year old manager has received offers to coach Paris Saint-Germain on multiple occasions but he has rejected all of those approaches as he has stated that his only true desire is to remain at the forefront of Arsenal.

Arsene Wenger has been in charge of Arsenal since 1996 and in this time lapse of 20 years, he has developed a love-hate relationship with the supporters of the Premier League club. There are fans that aren’t so happy to see him at the Emirates Stadium as he has consistently failed to push Arsenal to the 1rst place position in any season of the Premier League from the past decade but there are supporters that have faith and trust in him.

After having spent so many years at the Emirates Stadium, Arsene Wenger has recently voiced his love for Arsenal as the French manager said:

Arsene Wenger has once again confirmed that he will be prepared to spend big money

Arsene Wenger has once again confirmed that he will be prepared to spend big money on a player should there be a necessity.


Arsenal have been linked with a number of forwards during the summer, but they have failed to make any major significance signings so far. There is growing concern amongst Arsenal fans with the season upon them. Arsenal were thought to be very close to securing Jamie Vardy for around £ 20 million from champions Leicester City. However, Vardy chose to stay at Leicester by signing a new four-year contract. Following this major blow, Arsenal shifted their attention towards Lyon forward Alexandre Lacazette.

Negotiations have been going on for several weeks and it now looks highly unlikely that the club will be able to sign him since Lyon are unwilling to sell at Arsenal’s asking price. In contrast, Arsenal have given a take or leave offer to the French club. Even though performances in the pre-season friendly games have been extremely good, Arsenal fans feared that the upcoming 2016-17 season will be a repeat of the club’s performances in the last decade whereby they have not been consistent over the course of the season to create any major impact in the table.

Wales midfielder Aaron Ramsey claims that Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has given him a lot of belief that the nation will be able to do something great that the Euro 2016.

Ray Parlour believes that Arsenal will be able to compete in the Premier League title race

Ray Parlour believes that Arsenal will be able to compete in the Premier League title race only they make some big signings in the summer.


A promising title challenge has once again become a race for the top four. This has been a replica of the gunners’ campaign or more than a decade. Only in the summer, it looked like Arsenal would be able to take advantage of Chelsea, Manchester City, and Manchester United suffering from poor form since the start of the campaign. Arsenal were in the race only with Leicester City back then.

However, they have slipped far behind the top of the table since the turn of the year. Arsenal are now fighting to even remain in the top four with four games left. Parlour believes that there are a number of weak links in the Arsenal squad and Wenger has been unable to overcome them especially during injuries. The injury to Danny Welbeck meant that Olivier Giroud had to play almost the entire season up front on his own. The gunners were challenging on all fronts when Giroud was scoring, but they have fallen behind once those goals dried up. The end of the title challenge was confirmed with a 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace at home. Continue reading Ray Parlour believes that Arsenal will be able to compete in the Premier League title race

Branislav Ivanovic: ‘’We couldn’t handle with the pressure’’

The 32 year old Serbian defender Branislav Ivanovic has recently spoke out about the current Premier League season which has seen Chelsea going from being the champions of England to dropping dangerously low in the league and are now settled in the middle section of the standings.

Chelsea’s Premier League season has been a rollercoaster ride as they have gone from highs to lows and Branislav Ivanovic has also been a turbulent one.

Branislav Ivanovic has revealed details as to why he believes were one of the main reasons of Chelsea’s inconsistency in this season. The Serbian defender said: ‘’We didn’t know what was going wrong around us. No-one inside the club knew. We finished brilliantly last season. We won the trophy. We knew how difficult it was. Jose told us the hardest season in football is the year after you win because everyone else has extra motivation. We were ready for that, but we didn’t start well and we lost control of our game, of our minds.’’

‘’For me that period of three or four months was one of the most disappointing moments in my career. Player by player, we could not deal with the pressure of what being champions of England means. Your opponents have big motivation and they look at you differently, they start to be scared of you. But when we didn’t win for six or seven games, people realized we were not as strong as last season.’’ Continue reading Branislav Ivanovic: ‘’We couldn’t handle with the pressure’’

Claudio Ranieri is certain that the Chinese Super League is a threat to the PL

As each day goes by it seems like the spending power of the Chinese Super League increases as well and this is starting to become evident by the amount of high profile players that have been signed by the Asian clubs of that league.

Ezequiel Lavezzi was signed by Heibei China in a deal where the Argentine player is believed to be earning around £400,000 each week. Alex Teixeira was another fairly well know player that was signed by Jiangsu Suning and Alex Teixeira was a winter target of Liverpool but the Premier League club failed to secure his services as he opted to make a move to the Asian club instead of Anfield and Leicester City’ Claudio Ranieri believes that things of this nature will continue to happen if the spending power of the Chinese Super League continues to grow and this can pose as a huge problem for the Premier League

“In three to five years, all the movement will be in China. China want to overtake the Premier League. It is important to spend money to bring the best players, but there is a big threat because China start to buy young and fantastic players.” Leicester City’s Claudio Ranieri said as he voiced his thoughts concerning the recent growth of the Chinese Super League.

Arsenal needs MesutOzil to win the Premier League

MesutOzil continues to gather the spotlight of the media as the German midfielder is one of the main driving forces behind Arsenal’s rise to the top of the Premier League. This was especially evident during Arsenal’s 2-1 victory over Manchester City. Ozil provided the assists for both of the goals that his teammates scored.

The German player is going through such an impressive season that he is on course of breaking the current Premier League assist record which is being held by Thierry Henry.

Henry is the current record holder for most assists in a single season after providing 20 assists back when he was performing for Arsenal but if MesutOzil continues his form then a new record will be set.

There still are more than 20 games left in this season of the Premier League which is plenty of time for MesutOzil to mark his name in the history books of the English League.

Arsene Wenger took the chance to praise the work that his £42.4 million signing has been making in this season and the French manager labeled Ozil as an: ‘’absolutely unbelievable player’’ Continue reading Arsenal needs MesutOzil to win the Premier League

Yaya Toure wants Africa to invest in it’s youth, agriculture and education

Besides being one of the star players of Manchester City, Yaya Toure also plays a big role for the United Nations Environment as he became a goodwill ambassador back in 2013. The Ivorian midfielder believes that the youth in Africa can be the driving force behind the nation but in order to accomplish that, they need to have a clan and well-structured body and mind.

Manchester City’s Yaya Toure is certain that by investing in today’s generation it will create a wave of positive effects that can help eliminate hunger and poverty but in order for the youth of modern days to develop their full potential they need to have the support by the rest of the world as progress can’t be done in an isolated manner, it needs to be fulfilled with the aid of people from all around the globe.
