Could Alexis Be Better Than Van Persie In His Prime?

This weekend, Arsenal beat Sunderland 2-0, with Alexis Sanchez scoring two. In the post-match interview, Mathieu Flamini was asked a few daft questions about how Alexis Sanchez might match up to the likes of Thierry Henry and Van Persie. Whilst there are few men who can match the God that…

Giroud, Rosicky and Koscielny Administer Sunderland Walloping.

Morning, folks. This may well be the briefest match review you’ll read. Don’t hold it against me; I’m suffering with an astonishing lack of sleep and instead of heading to bed where I should be, I’m taking a few moments to ensure my run of posting every day in 2014…

“Arsene knows best. Arsenal fans should realise the season isn’t over yet”

Morning, disgruntled and apoplectic supporters and mourners of the Arsenal persuasion. These headaches and heartaches the day after calamitous results are becoming too regular an occurrence, aren’t they? So that’s the FA Cup, our last legitimate hope of silverware, gone for another season. Football is a cruel, wicked mistress. After…
