Previously, I wrote an article ‘The trouble with Arsenal’, which analyses whether or not Arsenal have become a selling club; the conclusion being an emphatic yes. Since their invincible season, the club have made a staggering £40 million net profit from transfers and have developed a habit of signing young talent, nurturing these players and then selling them on to slightly bigger clubs.
I’d like to expand on this further, because a week ago on Saturday, Arsenal lost 2-0 at home to Swansea which caused for some fans to call for Arsene Wenger’s departure. In my personal opinion, I think it’s ludicrous to want to sack Wenger and Arsenal fans would be making a big mistake if they began to push any ‘Wenger out’ campaigns forward.

Another clash of two teams struggling for form tonight, both teams have managed just one win from their last five games. After a poor start to both campaigns the two teams find themselves in the relegation zone so this will be a huge game for both.
Sunderland have some big name absentees with veteran defenders Wes Brown and John O’Shea set to miss the game, arguably the biggest loss for the Black Cats is striker Steven Fletcher. The 25-year-old is a big doubt for tonight’s clash having suffered an ankle injury which saw him miss the weekends defeat to Chelsea. Martin O’Neill faces a selection headache in attack with Louis Saha and Connor Wickham both in contention for a starting place, he went with the latter on the weekend.

It’s a clash of two out of form sides on Monday evening, Fulham without a win in their last five and Newcastle managing just one victory in five. Martin Jol’s side have been struggling for goals of late, going five hours of play without one.
Fulham are set to welcome back Alex Kacaniklic and Sascha Riether from injury but the biggest return is club captain Brede Hangeland as he returns from a three-match suspension and should go straight back into the starting eleven. Fulham will miss the Costa Rican forward Bryan Ruiz, the 27-year-old ruled out for a further month with a hamstring injury.

The 1994/1995 season is just a distant memory to many football fans, but try telling that to Blackburn Rovers supporters and they will be quick to tell you how great that year was. This particular season will be etched in their memory for the rest of their lives. Here’s why.

As Manchester City crashed out of the Champions League midweek and Chelsea linger over the brink of their own European campaign, it is interesting to consider the impact these exits may have in the domestic fight.
Manchester City have been in the firing line for a lot of criticism so far this season but remain the only unbeaten team in the league and find themselves in sizzling hot form, winning six out of their last seven league games. A favorable result in the Signal Iduna Park looks difficult and even if City do land in the Europa League, they will treat it as a secondary objective, despite what noise they make on the contrary.

It goes without saying that Manchester United have several world-class players fitting the bill to be classified as reliable penalty-takers, namely Ryan Giggs, Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney. However, this (apparently) pleasant task has become a bit of a nightmare for the United faithful as of late, as the Reds Devils have failed to find the net 4 out of 7 times so far this season. The more positive side of such an equally dreadful and astonishing stat is that none of these 4 flaws has been costly for Sir Alex Ferguson troops.
