Much has happened in the past month of Premier League. Bolton beat Manchester City, Arsenal lost to Stoke City, Aston Villa, and Manchester City. Arsenal also beat Chelsea and Liverpool. Liverpool has become in the first place after Chelsea lost to Arsenal.

This is my opinion of which players played best this month.

whats your team of the month?


Uefa Cup: Manchester City vs. Schalke

November 27, 2008

Manchester proved too good for German side Schalke today in the Uefa Cup. A Goal from Benjani and another from Ireland secured City’s 2-0 win. Benjani had an excelent season last year, but failed to impress this season while stephen Ireland is showing to be one of the most promising attacking midfielders of Premier League.

Manchester City has good momentum building (they beat Arsenal 3-0 las t weekend) and they take on Manchester united this weekend.

Premier League Derby: London!

November 27, 2008

This weekend not only is there the Manchester derby, but also a London Derby. Not any London derby, but one between two of the big four: Chelsea vs. Arsenal.

Arsenal have been in poor form lately, they has their captain stripped of his position and a bad press stint. There was supposedly many dressing room fights. Arsenal lost to Aston Villa and Manchester City in their last two games.

Chelsea are not in the best of form themselves right now. They tied Newcastle United last weekend and they tied Bordeux in the Champions League. This puts Chelsea in a vulnerable position because to qualify, now, for the Champions League they must beat Cluj (who they tied last time).

My prediction Chelsea 2-0 Arsenal

Premier League Derby: Manchester!

November 27, 2008

This weekend both Manchester teams in the Premier League will face off. Manchester City have beaten Arsenal last weekend 3-0 while Manchester United tied Aston Villa. It will be interesting to see who will win. If Man U lose it could mean a top four spot for Manchester City.

My prediction Manchester United 2-0 Manchester City

Cesc Fabregas named new Arsenal captain. The 21 year old midfielder was named skipper after Arsene Wenger stripped the captaincy from France veteran, William Gallas.

Gallas recently had a bad press stint and Arsenal has been in a bad from run for a few weeks.

Arsenal up in tatters?

Whats up with Arsenal?They lost 3-0 against Manchester city, last week they lost 2-0 against Aston Villa, three weeks ago they lost 2-1 against Stoke. (however, in between these weeks they beet Manchester united 2-1).

William Gallas was stripped of his captaincy and Darren Bent announced that during their 4-4 tie there was a lot of arguing and tension between the Arsenal players.

Arsenal, Arsene Wenger, and Gallas need some serious patching up to do, fast.

Premier League: Arsenal

Wenger, Genious or Rookie?

This year Arsenal might have thier youngest squad ever. In the Carling Cup games (in which they dominated so far) they have put out the youngest squads the premier league have seen. They have players like Vela, Bendtner, Nasri, Wilshere, Simpson, not to mention Walcott (maybe England’s most promising prospect). But they have been sluggish in the premier league, having ammassed four losses (chelsea and liverpool only have one and man u only have two) and they have the smalles goal difference out of all of the big four. They are tied with Aston Villa for fourth.

How do you think this season will turn out for Arsenal and do you think Arsenal need to think about signing more experienced players in January?
