A Window to the Future: Six things Arsenal needs to Level Up (Positive Needs & Hopes)

A Window to the Future Saturday at 5pm I sat down to make a coaching plan based on what I’d just seen. My son’s team had just been beaten 4-1 and I’d been asked to guest coach a session this Thursday. When deciding what to teach I always try to analyze what the root of […]

Liverpool 5-1 Arsenal – Emery tweaks, Defence Leaks, Future’s Bleak? (Review + Player Ratings)

Did Emery replace our defence with a sieve?     This may surprise some, but I think our display wasn’t all bad at Anfield. This ground is an odd one for us – we’ve had some immense highs (1989) and deep lows. This has to go along with the lows. We created chances in some […]

Liverpool 4-0 Arsenal: Beginning of the End? Or Business as Usual?

Liverpool 4-0 Arsenal Premier League – Anfield – 27th August 2017 Well, well, well…. What the hell was that?! That stunk. That hurt. That was pathetically abominable. From a Liverpool standpoint, this is an excellent performance. They bossed it from start to finish, and looked sharper in attack, midfield, and in defence looked surprisingly strong. […]
