Re: FA Cup 2020/21

Damn. Arsenal the holders out of the Cup, 0-1 @ Southampton. With the Club not travelling well in the League, surely the strongest Arsenal lineup should have started in this do-or-die Cup round. This was not the time to mess around with squad rotation. Pepe embarrassed himself with an absolute shock...

RIP Gerry Marsden, he of the monster hit “You’ll Never Walk Alone”.

Gerry Marsden, frontman of the classic 1960s group Gerry and the Pacemakers has died aged 78. Liverpool fans adopted the group’s hit to become one of the most famous football anthems in the World. One of their other hits “Ferry Cross the Mersey” was one of my favourites which I saw them perform @ a ...

But the drama was at the 86th minute mark, with the game poised at 1-2, when Sterling missed a tap-in with the goal-mouth completely open. Instead of Sterling equalising to make it 2-2, Dembele raced down the other end in the 87t...

Re: EPL 2019-2020

Arsenal into yet another F.A. Cup Final with a disciplined 2-0 win over ManCity in this morning’s Semi.

Not a bad week with the win over Liverpool as well to boost morale.

Still missing a creative midfielder positioned forward of Xhaka and Ceballos to “make the play”.
