Anderlecht preview :: Ospina knackered

Champions League action tonight as we take on Anderlecht. Having lost to Dortmund and then pulverised Galatasaray, this is a game from which we’ll be looking to take three points. Anderlecht are, on paper, the weakest team in the group, but you suspect they’ll be looking at us and thinking

Pre-Anderlecht waffle, KSE losing friends rapidly

As usual after a disappointing result, there’s been something of a wall of silence. Understandable, how much more is there to say about what happened against Hull? Still, we just have snippets to keep us going today until the manager meets the press in Belgium later on. There’ll be the

The 4-1-4-1 on Arsenal’s new formation

With the football world celebrating ten years since Arsenal became “Invincible,” it was interesting how chatter quickly veered away from the amazing technical accuracy the team played with, to discussion about leaders.

Defensive problems obvious, but is the solution?

A famous man once said, “If you defend like a garrulous, gin-soaked wombat, you’ll never win the Premier League.” Actually, I don’t know if a famous man said that at all, but somebody should have because it’s true. We are a gimlet-eyed marsupial at the moment, conceding more goals, looking
