Posted on 12 Oct, 2014, by in Soccer

It’s always hard to believe wonderkids grow old. But Wayne Rooney is going to turn 29 very soon, playing in the Premier League for 13 seasons and for England since 2003. It’s been so long players like Jack Wilshere see him as a father figure. More

Arsenal FC – Jack Wilshere Should Keep Playing in a Wider Position

Posted on 27 Nov, 2013, by in Soccer

Maybe Jack Wilshere prefers playing as a central midfielder, a playmaker in the classic sense. But considering the squad Arsenal have and the system Arsene Wenger deploys, time and time again it’s been proven that the English international is a lot more useful when he plays in a wide position, almost as a winger.

Posted on 24 Nov, 2013, by in Soccer

The 2-0 win for Arsenal over Southampton wasn’t the most impressive of displays, but it did showcase Olivier Giroud at his finest, which meant making up for a weak performance from Mesut Ozil, Jack Wilshere and Aaron Ramsey, usually getting more credit for the Gunners’ success early this season.

Arsenal FC – Mesut Ozil Disappearing Act is No Reason to Panic

Posted on 11 Nov, 2013, by in Soccer

With Mesut Ozil disappearing and Aaron Ramsey playing too far away from the box most of the match, Olivier Giroud remained the only hope for Arsenal to come away with something from the Old Trafford.

Arsenal FC – Arsene Wenger Needs to Be Worried

Posted on 30 Oct, 2013, by in Soccer

Even though Arsenal didn’t use the best lineup available to them in the League Cup, they still played with Aaron Ramsey, Jack Wilshere, Santi Cazorla and Laurent Koscielny. Having Olivier Giroud and Mesut Ozil coming off the bench didn’t really help them either, suggesting the next couple of weeks might be a bit too much for this team despite the impressive start. More

Arsenal FC – Mathieu Flamini More Important Than Mesut Ozil

Posted on 20 Oct, 2013, by in Soccer

Without Mesut Ozil, Arsenal aren’t sudden title contenders and league leaders in the Premier League, but they weren’t exactly short on creativity in the midfield before his arrival. However, bringing back Mathieu Flamini gave the team a real defensive midfielder and not a converted one for the first time in a very long while, happening to be the biggest reason for their success this season.

Arsenal are firing on all cylinders at the moment, as proven by their very comfortable 4-1 win over Norwich and remaining at the top of the Premier League. But it’s not just wins – it’s ability, flair and creativity oozing out of their attacking players, demonstrated perfectly in the opening goal by Jack Wilshere, coming after some brilliant passing between himself, Olivier Giroud and Santi Cazorla.

Jack Wilshere Takes A Very Long Time to Empty His Bladder

Posted on 15 Oct, 2013, by in Soccer

It’s been quite a busy couple of weeks for Jack Wilshere – smoking, opinions on immigration and what it means to really be English and play for the national team. He’s not done, mind you, deciding to urinate with the cameras rolling. More

Arsenal FC – Olivier Giroud Shouldn’t Be Irreplaceable

Posted on 7 Oct, 2013, by in Soccer

It’s hard to complain about Arsenal as they hit the international break still in the lead of the Premier League, as Jack Wilshere finds his scoring touch for the first time in three years. However, the over-reliance on Olivier Giroud and the lack of a decent backup to the jaded striker might become costly later on in the season. More
