Arsenal FC – Petr Cech Finally Shows Why Arsene Wenger Signed Him

Posted on 24 Aug, 2015, by in Soccer

After two unimpressive match to start his Arsenal career, Petr Cech performed perfectly in the 0-0 draw against Liverpool with a first half performance that was eventually worth a point to the gunners, making some reflex-saves very few goalkeepers can do themselves. More

Arsenal FC – Arsene Wenger Doesn’t Know Why This Keeps Happening to Him

Posted on 23 Nov, 2014, by in Soccer

For years the criticism directed at Arsene Wenger suggested he doesn’t spend enough money on elite players. Over the last two seasons he has changed his way, bringing in the likes of Mesut Ozil last year and Alexis Sanchez in 2014. The results haven’t improved. In fact, it’s gotten to be a lot worse. More

Arsenal FC – Olivier Giroud Isn’t Useless After All

Posted on 24 Aug, 2014, by in Soccer

Deep down inside, Arsene Wenger wishes he had a better striker than Olivier Giroud. However, on the current Arsenal team, he is the best he’s got, which is weird (or not, depending on how familiar you are with the French manager’s logic) he’d put himself with his back against the wall until opting to use the forward to save himself from the first loss of the season.

Arsenal FC – Alexis Sanchez Doesn’t Make Olivier Giroud Any Better

Posted on 22 Jul, 2014, by in Soccer

The excitement spreading over Arsenal fans because of another summer that proves Arsene Wenger isn’t just about developing and saving money won’t last a long time if he doesn’t bring in more players. Relying on Olivier Giroud as the team’s lone striker was a bad idea last season, and it will remain just as bad this season if no one to at least give him some push and shove in the rotation arrives.

2014 World Cup – Chile’s Alexis Sanchez is a Very Different Player

Posted on 14 Jun, 2014, by in Soccer

With Barcelona, Alexis Sanchez has a defines, limited role. Playing for Chile, it’s a very different story, as the talented forward has pretty much a free role to go wherever he wants on the pitch, resulting in some brilliant football from his team in their win over Australia, and a fantastic assist from Sanchez in the second goal.

FC Barcelona – Lionel Messi Needs His Teammates to Score

Posted on 6 Feb, 2014, by in Soccer

Even through Barcelona did get the job done for the most part, it was impossible to shake the feeling of slight disappointment from the overall performance and especially upfront, where Lionel Messi set up his teammates numerous times with comfortable opportunities that should have been easily converted.

FC Barcelona – Alexis Sanchez Leads an Old School Demolition

Posted on 6 Jan, 2014, by in Soccer

There’s not always a need for Neymar or Lionel Messi to be on the pitch for Barcelona to be at their best. Alexis Sanchez in the best form of his career and generally playing like they couldn’t wait for the Christmas break to be over is enough to put on one of the most impressive performances from Barcelona this season.

FC Barcelona – Neymar Shines Through The Stifling Tactics

Posted on 15 Dec, 2013, by in Soccer

The call to prove that he can carry Barcelona on his back has been answered by Neymar, scoring five goals in two matches, and also showing he can make it happen despite some bad tactical decisions from Tata Martino, for some reason returning to the uber-possession concept that has proven more than once to be slightly outdated. More

FC Barcelona – The Problem Isn’t Neymar, It’s Cesc Fabregas

Posted on 3 Dec, 2013, by in Soccer

Everyone is looking to see if Barcelona are truly in a crisis now. Gerardo Martino has a world of pressure on his shoulders to find the answers after a very poor showing in the team’s most recent matches. While eyes are directed at Neymar, the answers to Barca’s problems can be found with Cesc Fabregas – his positioning on the pitch, rather than his actual presence. More

FC Barcelona – Neymar Happy Not Scoring Any Goals

Posted on 24 Nov, 2013, by in Soccer

A 4-0 win for Barcelona and Neymar didn’t score a single goal? Something must be wrong, right? Not really. The Brazilian has 4 goals and 8 assists so far this season, looking perfectly happy to be the set up man for Alexis Sanchez, Pedro and others (including Lionel Messi when he isn’t injured), showing that his arrival wasn’t meant to be about forcing him into the main star role.
