van Persie returns, Mourinho’s Snide Blathering and Early Liverpool Bits.

Morning, folks. Yesterday there was an eruption. It was an explosion of news and most of it was of the silly variety. There were no fabulous moments of blinding clarity or life-affirming statements from ethereal creatures ordained by god to share their message of enlightenment. This is the world of…

Monreal, Ozil, The Flame and Arteta; Bitterness in the Face of a Crippling… Errr…. Draw.

Morning folks. Before I get into my review of the game, I feel it’s best to start by complimenting our opponents.

Arsenal’s new ideal starting XI.
