Arsenal

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang Unai Emery's main man, Lucas Torreira also crucial at Arsenal

Wed, 15 Aug 2018 01:00:00 PDT

online purchase of dapoxetine Craig Burley and Paul Mariner believe Arsenal will have to be judged against the rest of the Prem because the gulf in quality against Man City was too great. Last September, we looked at the most important players at Arsenal. With the new season underway, who are the risers and fallers? This list is not extensive and has been ranked according to varying factors. Some players still with a part to play have been omitted. Performance, potential, the ability to make an impact and influence the course of a game, other options in that area of the field, the ability or inability to replace them and market value have all played a part in revising the...

Petr Cech edges Bernd Leno at Arsenal - so what's Unai Emery's plan?

Tue, 14 Aug 2018 06:02:00 PDT

http://lostdauphins.com/bios/ ESPN's Stewart Robson shares his analysis on where Unai Emery's Arsenal side fell short in their 2-0 loss to Manchester City at the Emirates. Arsenal's Unai Emery admits his side still have lots of work to do, as he aims to take the club back into Europe's elite. Following Arsenal's Premier League opener, the FC crew assess Unai Emery's tactics, including the decision to include teenager Matteo Guendouzi. Craig Burley and Paul Mariner believe Arsenal will have to be judged against the rest of the Prem because the gulf in quality against Man City was too great. Arguably the most appealing thing for Arsenal fans this season is the sense of the unknown. Most supporters don't have any realistic aspirations to win the Premier League title -- and even the wildest dreamers at the Emirates would have had their ambition quelled by Manchester City's comprehensive 2-0 victory last Sunday. Instead, Arsenal are engaged in a recognisable fight for the top four. Familiar though that particular fight is, there are many new elements this time round to stave off the ennui:...

Salah, Sanchez, De Bruyne, Jorginho among Premier League most important

Tue, 14 Aug 2018 04:20:00 PDT

buy generic estrace cream The Exploding Heads are here to tell you that the more changes a new football season brings, the more things stay the same. A year ago, ESPN FC's correspondents each selected their club's 15 most important players and just 12 months on, there's been a huge amount of changes. Mohamed Salah's rise has made him Liverpool's main man while it's a new era at Arsenal with Unai Emery looking to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to score the goals in his first season at the club.  Kevin De Bruyne's influence has grown even further at Manchester City and it's all change at Chelsea too, with Jorginho set to be integral to how Maurizio...

Unai Emery needs time to enact the wholesale changes needed at Arsenal

Mon, 13 Aug 2018 10:42:00 PDT

Craig Burley and Paul Mariner believe Arsenal will have to be judged against the rest of the Prem because the gulf in quality against Man City was too great. Former Arsenal forward Paul Mariner breaks down how Manchester City were able to dominate the Gunners while urging patience with Unai Emery's side. Anyone wondering how long it would take Unai Emery to fully understand what it means to be Arsenal head coach need wonder no longer. All it took was one game to anger Sam Allardyce by having the temerity to play short passes along the ground. "This is the manager's fault. It's his fault," he said of Arsenal's 2-0 defeat to Manchester City on Sunday. "We are getting obsessed with this stupid 'let's play out from the back'... (it's) utter rubbish to play like that all of the time." To which the...

Man City impress at work-in-progress Arsenal; Madrid keepers; Pogba vs. Mourinho

Mon, 13 Aug 2018 07:34:00 PDT

journal ampicillin 500mg Manchester City picked up where they left off last season with a dominant performance to win 2-0 at Arsenal. It is worth noting that the defending Premier League champions unpicked the opposition on Unai Emery's debut without Gabriel Jesus, Fabian Delph, Leroy Sane, David Silva, Nicolas Otamendi and Kevin De Bruyne in the starting lineup. In other words, six of their 11 most frequently used players from last season were missing, when they set a new Premier League points total with 100. The scary...

Arsenal can't rely on Mesut Ozil to lead them forward in Unai Emery's new era

Mon, 13 Aug 2018 05:43:00 PDT

Craig Burley and Paul Mariner believe Arsenal will have to be judged against the rest of the Prem because the gulf in quality against Man City was too great. Mesut Ozil is the leader at Arsenal; the talisman, the rallying point for the team and fans. It is a responsibility from which he cannot hide. No player is bigger than a club -- especially one as huge as the Gunners -- yet Ozil is to Arsenal what Harry Kane is to rivals Tottenham Hotspur: the man everyone looks to at times of crisis. The big difference between the pair is that Kane delivers regularly enough to maintain that belief; Ozil disappoints too often. The German opened the season with a...

Bayer Leverkusen troll Petr Cech over Arsenal keeper's error vs. Man City

Mon, 13 Aug 2018 02:49:00 PDT

Arsenal kicked off their Premier League season with a 2-0 home defeat against reigning champions Manchester City -- though that losing margin might well have been greater. The Gunners very nearly self-destructed at one point when, forced into playing out from the back, Petr Cech came within inches of slotting a dreadful pass directly into his own net. We might know a guy...— Bayer 04 Leverkusen (@bayer04_en) 12 August 2018 Gasps of amazement were soon replaced with hoots and howls of derision, with Bayer Leverkusen seizing the opportunity to join in and troll from afar. After...

Arsenal's uncomfortable Petr Cech earns 5/10 as Gunners struggle vs. Man City

Sun, 12 Aug 2018 10:38:00 PDT

Raheem Sterling and Bernardo Silva provided the goals to help Manchester City begin their title defense with a 2-0 win over Arsenal. The Unai Emery era at Arsenal began with a defeat as champions Manchester City reasserted their credentials in a 2-0 win. Raheem Sterling gave City the lead in a first half they dominated. Arsenal improved after the break, but not enough to stop Bernardo Silva putting the seal on the victory. Positives Set what happened on the pitch aside, this was a huge day for Arsenal. It was the dawn of a new era, and it was encouraging to see the stadium packed full. In this precise fixture last season,...

Man City's win over Arsenal suggests they can get even better in title-defending season

Sun, 12 Aug 2018 10:09:00 PDT

Raheem Sterling and Bernardo Silva provided the goals to help Manchester City begin their title defense with a 2-0 win over Arsenal. LONDON -- Three quick thoughts from Manchester City's 2-0 Premier League win over Arsenal at the Emirates on Sunday. 1. City demonstrate they're prepared to title defence Not since 2008-09 has the Premier League title been retained, but it's difficult to remember any previous champions looking as dominant as this Manchester City at the start of the following campaign. There is serious competition at the top of the division this season: Liverpool will improve from last term, Chelsea have...

Arsenal's Unai Emery and Man City's Pep Guardiola set to renew tactical chess game in England

Fri, 10 Aug 2018 01:30:00 PDT

Pep Guardiola explains why Manchester City were not more active in the summer transfer window, only adding Riyad Mahrez for a club-record fee. Despite Unai Emery's fresh ideas at Arsenal, ESPN FC's Craig Burley isn't so sure the Gunners will secure a top four spot. When Arsenal were building the Emirates, Arsene Wenger wanted the Gunners' new stadium to be like the Mestalla. On previous visits with Arsenal, he'd been struck by the steepness of Valencia's ground. Would it be possible, Wenger enquired, for the Emirates to mimic the claustrophobic Mestalla, complete with steep stands that felt like four vertical walls? Alas, building regulations in Britain differ from those in Spain, and Arsenal were forced to settle for a significantly lesser gradient -- 7.5...

How Unai Emery's Arsenal will play: Five former players examine his tactics

Fri, 10 Aug 2018 12:36:00 PDT

Despite Unai Emery's fresh ideas at Arsenal, ESPN FC's Craig Burley isn't so sure the Gunners will secure a top four spot. During his unveiling as Arsenal manager, Unai Emery promised fans that he would work hard to help the club fight for titles. Those who know him well say that the Spaniard will do everything in his power to achieve his targets. Ahead of the Gunners' Premier League opener against Manchester City on Sunday, five of Emery's former players spoke to ESPN FC to give insight on how the new Arsenal boss works. 1. An attractive style Two of Emery's compatriots, Rafa Benitez and Pep Guardiola, have...

Arsenal summer transfer activity shows clear move from Arsene Wenger's thinking

Thu, 9 Aug 2018 01:37:00 PDT

FC's Paul Mariner sifts through all the latest rumours surrounding Paul Pogba, Luka Modric, Ousmane Dembele and many more in Rumour Rater. Former Arsenal player Paul Mariner assesses the various reactions to the news of Stan Kroenke's possible takeover of Arsenal's ownership. There could have been more symbolic ways of marking the end of Arsene Wenger's 22-year reign at Arsenal. Burning the coat with the faulty zipper, for instance, or banning broccoli from the Emirates Stadium. Maybe signing Andy Carroll or inviting Tony Pulis to become their next manager. But in the absence of such extreme measures, Wenger's successor, Unai Emery -- along with head of recruitment, Sven Mislintat, and head of football relations, Raul Sanllehi -- nevertheless managed to signal a definitive...

Stan Kroenke: The view from America of Arsenal's prospective owner

Wed, 8 Aug 2018 11:38:00 PDT

Former Arsenal player Paul Mariner assesses the various reactions to the news of Stan Kroenke's possible takeover of Arsenal's ownership. Despite Unai Emery's fresh ideas at Arsenal, ESPN FC's Craig Burley isn't so sure the Gunners will secure a top four spot. Stan Kroenke struck an agreement with Arsenal minority shareholder Alisher Usmanov for his 30 percent stake in the Premier League club this week. Combining that with Kroenke's 67 percent of shares now allows Kroenke to force the remaining individual shareholders to sell the other three-percent stake to him as well. Put simply, Kroenke will soon have complete ownership of one of European football's crown jewel clubs, ending a nearly 10-year battle for sole control. The deal, which values Arsenal...

Arsenal takeover by Stan Kroenke kills part of club's soul

Wed, 8 Aug 2018 11:12:00 PDT

Former Arsenal player Paul Mariner assesses the various reactions to the news of Stan Kroenke's possible takeover of Arsenal's ownership. Despite Unai Emery's fresh ideas at Arsenal, ESPN FC's Craig Burley isn't so sure the Gunners will secure a top four spot. Former Arsenal striker Paul Mariner is cautious over Arsenal's chances of reaching the top four this season. What is a football club? Is it the bricks and mortar that provide its physical structure? The players and coaches who are responsible for shaping its fate and pursuing its ambitions on the pitch? Or the supporters, who through their collective expression of identity and deep emotional attachment supply a club with its soul? If you lean towards the third option, it's hard not to feel that a part of Arsenal's soul died this week. Arsenal, which with its marble halls and conception of doing things...

Meet the new class: Europe's new managers have a point to prove

Wed, 8 Aug 2018 12:18:00 PDT

Niko Kovac, Julen Lopetegui and many more have changed jobs this summer. FC's Paul Mariner delves into how each will fare at their new clubs. Julen Lopetegui says there is a buoyant mood at Real Madrid ahead of the new season. This summer, a host of top European clubs have changed their manager. Some by choice, while others were forced into it. Here's what we can expect from the new arrivals. Illustrations by Rafa Alvarez. REAL MADRID: JULEN LOPETEGUI -- Move past Spain and Cristiano Ronaldo issues Sometimes a picture paints a thousand words.

Stan Kroenke Arsenal takeover Q&A: What Alisher Usmanov buyout means

Tue, 7 Aug 2018 10:47:00 PDT

Despite Unai Emery's fresh ideas at Arsenal, ESPN FC's Craig Burley isn't so sure the Gunners will secure a top four spot. After Mesut Ozil captained Arsenal to a 5-1 ICC win over PSG, Unai Emery feels the German is capable of donning the armband moving forward. After a 10-year battle, Stan Kroenke is finally set to get full control of Arsenal. The American billionaire's latest offer to buy out fellow shareholder Alisher Usmanov's stake for £550 million has been accepted by the Russian. The deal, which values the club at £1.8 billion, means Arsenal are set to pass into single ownership for the first time in the club's 132-year history. But what does that mean, and how did we get to this point? Here's a brief look at the history of Kroenke's takeover...

ESPN's Luck Index smashes cliche that luck evens out over time

Mon, 6 Aug 2018 11:00:00 PDT

The ESPN Luck Index examined how the 2017-18 Premier League would have looked if luck was not a factor. We'll back soon with the results. ESPN FC's Steve Nicol and Shaka Hislop share personal accounts where luck had a significant impact in their footballing careers. I can't believe the ref gave that decision? The league are biased against us. We could have won the title if not for so many bad calls. If we didn't have bad luck, we'd have no luck at all! Sound familiar? It's the refrain of every single football fan at some time or other. Oh, and you can forget that silly cliché that decisions even themselves out over the course of a season. We know that's not the case. In fact, you can work it out for yourself by simply flipping a coin: the more...

David Ospina, Carl Jenkinson among the fat Arsenal need to trim before end of transfer window

Mon, 6 Aug 2018 10:48:00 PDT

Despite Unai Emery's fresh ideas at Arsenal, ESPN FC's Craig Burley isn't so sure the Gunners will secure a top four spot. Former Arsenal striker Paul Mariner is cautious over Arsenal's chances of reaching the top four this season. It is only three short years since Arsene Wenger achieved the notable feat of being the only Premier League manager not to sign a single outfield player during the transfer window. If the summer of 2015 seems like an era ago, that's precisely because it was. The new hierarchy in place at Emirates Stadium have been rather more efficient in terms of signing players. Almost too efficient. If transfer manoeuvres under Wenger sometimes felt undercooked as deals failed to get off the ground, or,...

Premier League: Man City, Liverpool fight for title; Man United uncertainty under Mourinho

Mon, 6 Aug 2018 01:00:00 PDT

After a record-breaking campaign in 2017-18, the FC crew assess the expectations for Manchester City in the Premier League this season. FC's Stevie Nicol feels Liverpool have strengthened in all the right areas to challenge for the Premier League title this season. With Jose Mourinho's antics reaching a tipping point this preseason, the FC panel examine the effect it's having on Man United's dressing room. Jurgen Klopp contends his top players 'don't use Liverpool and then go,' but Shaka Hislop explains why that's not a sure thing. The ESPN FC panel answer your tweets on Man City's Champions League chances, Milan's top-four hopes and Herc's questionable wardrobe selection. The Premier League is back! A new season brings fresh optimism and hope for the campaign ahead -- but how are the clubs shaping up? ESPN FC's club correspondents, bloggers and staff run the rule over all 20 teams and predict their final position in 2018-19.  Using last season's table, with the three promoted teams at the bottom, here's a look at each club's season ahead.
