  1. When as an Arsenal fan I watch Europa League games, my mind has lots of questions related to the competition which usually helps in passing time because frankly speaking almost every game (7 to be exact) has been boring so far. Let's discuss those questions related to Arsenal's Europa League campaign. The first major issue is - should Arsene Wenger now prioritise Europa League for the rest of the season? A one off season away from Champions League is okay but a club like Arsenal that is self sustaining cannot afford to make this a habit. Qualification money right now does not ha
  2. Another entertainment-filled transfer window slams shut and now football is back to disturb us. Sounds wrong right? I know but this is what it actually felt like. Never before I have seen such a busy winter transfer window in Premier League. Arsenal fans have seen lots of unexpected stuff over the years but one thing that has still surprised most fans is the flurry of transfer activity in January. Much of the transfer period was consumed by the Alexis Sanchez saga, will he go or will he stay, will he join Man City or Man Utd, etc. Arsenal maintained their stance of wanting
  3. Finally we have the confirmation - Alexis Sanchez is now a Manchester United player and Henrikh Mkhitaryan is an Arsenal player. Twitter absolutely blew up as soon as the deal announced as both sets of fans shared their joy and few even expressed their disappointment. Negotiations took weeks and fans were eagerly waiting for the announcement but it is understandable that a direct exchange of players is a tough deal to complete considering the various negotiations involved with both players and their agents and so on. It was very much a certainty than the Chilean's time at North
  4. Another exciting weekend of Spanish football is here. Some big games are coming up this weekend including Real Madrid v Sevilla and Villarreal v Barcelona. Let us now go through the 10 fixtures this weekend. ALAVES v LAS PALMAS Gameweek 15 will begin with the Friday night game between 2 teams in the relegation zone. 19th placed Alaves welcome 18th placed Las Palmas. A win for either side can take them above the relegation zone depending on other results. Both teams won their respective fixture in gw 14 and this will be a massive showdown. Hat-trick hero for Alaves last
  5. The football media season, also known as the transfer season, is in full swing - we are just midway through it and some major deals have been completed already. Fans spend hours reading the transfer news and assessing completed deals so lets discuss a top signing of top 5 European leagues. LA LIGA VITOLO - SEVILLA TO ATLETICO MADRID, LOANED TO LAS PALMAS No better deal than this to start the article. Atletico Madrid are facing a transfer ban and have still arguably have made the best signing of La Liga so far. Atleti cannot register new players before January so, afte
  6. Just one month has passed from Arsenal's impressive FA Cup final win over Chelsea, but still the disappointments of last season in the Premier League and Champions League outweigh that victory. This off-season is very much needed to recharge batteries and take mind of the game for some time. So what happened after the FA Cup final is that Arsene Wenger has signed a new two-year contract at the Emirates Stadium. I don't think majority of Arsenal fans wanted that but I also know that said majority of Arsenal fans knew this will happen. Arsene had said that top-four qualification would
  7. So, in just a few days, another season of the Premier League will come to an end. It is noticeable that in recent years, the only thing which has come to conclusion in the final gameweek is not the title or relegation spots, but the Champions League qualification spots. With 37 games played all across the board, three teams are vying for two remaining spots. Manchester City and Liverpool look to be the favourites but Arsenal have an outside chance as well. 3rd - Manchester City (75 Points) Pep Guardiola's men sit 3rd in the table and in good form. 3 wins in last 3 game
  8. In my last article, dated February 28, I discussed the mess Arsenal were in. Three weeks on, it has become a crisis. Struggling to find one aspect where the club is impressive right now. Board members are hidden, fans are divided, manager keeping fans in the dark, players not performing on the pitch and last but not the least the ongoing transfer rumours. Arsenal have played 4 games in March and won just one - the FA Cup quarter-final against non-league side Lincoln City. Defeats against Liverpool and Bayern Munich were not surprising while the latest defeat at West Bromwich Alb
  9. Chris for a club like Arsenal what's going on is a mess. Change needed and you accept that as well. Coming on to your comment on United - they are gonna win the league before Wenger (if he stays).
  10. This article is dedicated to a topic on which I assume every football writer has given his opinion. Some were biased and had their agendas while some were hitting the core points. But do you ever wonder why does Arsenal invite such discussions every season? The reason is that each and every season is the same at the club and in this line itself the question whether Arsene Wenger should stay or leave is answered. Witnessing yet another season of a failed title challenge and embarrassing exit in the Champions League (no prizes for guessing the round) has finally woken up a lot of fans. In r
  11. 23 games down, 15 games to go. With the arrival of February, the Premier League is heading into the business end and there is only one club looking capable of winning the league title - Chelsea. As a football fan, I find many similarities in this season and last season. No team looks flawless yet only one team maintains consistency while the other contenders fail at regular intervals. Last season Leicester kept going on impressive runs losing just 2 of their 23 games and this season Chelsea go on winning runs and have just lost 3 games. Last season's contenders - Man City, Arsen
  12. So we're into the first full working week of January and society is back in full swing after the stop-start festive period. Of course, English football does not rest during Christmas and New Year, but with the FA Cup third round weekend out of the way, now is a good time to stop, look back and focus on how the Premier League table has shaped up. In this article, Football Manics writer Aneesh Chandoke looks at the sides in the Premier League title race. CHELSEA Chelsea are still at the top and, up until last Wednesday, appeared to be running away with the league title, but t
  13. Another exciting weekend of Premier League action has finished and gave us some very interesting talking points. There have been some breathtaking games this season which proves that the Premier League is indeed the best in the world in terms of entertainment. On this note, I would like to discuss a few talking points of the season so far after the conclusion of Gameweek 14. Chelsea smile after eight wins in a row It would be unfair to start this article by discussing any club other than Chelsea and its manager Antonio Conte. The Blues are improving with each passing f
  14. Serie A is one of the most tactical leagues around which is known for its interesting team selections, tactics and tight games. One third of the season has passed and 14 rounds have been played - only Genoa and Fiorentina have played a game less because the match on September 11 was abandoned due to a hailstorm. Juventus are currently top of the pack on 33 points after winning 11 games and losing 3. It is no surprise that the Bianconeri are at the top once again but this season they have looked a bit vulnerable compared to recent seasons. Defeats against both Milan giants has given o
  15. With the Premier League a third of the way through, things have shaped up nicely among all 20 teams. We have three main contenders for the title in Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City, with dark horses in the shape of Arsenal and Tottenham. Things become much tighter from sixth place downwards, with only nine points separating sixth-placed Manchester United from 18th-placed Hull City. So what do we make of the teams scrapping at the lower end of the table? Aneesh Chandoke looks at each club in detail, beginning from the one propping up the table. SUNDERLAND The Black Cats are
