Arsenal considering shock bid for Chelsea veteran



Reports are suggesting that Arsenal could continue their spending in January by making a move for Chelsea forward, Didier Drogba.

The striker has been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge for some time now, with the likes of Fernando Torres, Juan Mata and Nicolas Anelka to contend with.

The Ivory Coast international is also at the ripe old age of 33 and the Portuguese boss could be tempted into cashing in on the forward.

News is circulating that Marouane Chamakh could be on his way back to France sometime soon, with PSG apparently showing interest in acquiring his signature after the striker has endured a disappointing two years at the Emirates Stadium.

Drogba could turn out to be a sound asset for the Gunners, providing an experienced mind who has played in the Premier League for seven years now, and still has the potential for brilliance.

Given his low resale value and that he is in the last year of his contract, the forward, who has netted almost 100 times for the Blues, could be available for a pittance and would relieve some of the pressure from Robin van Persie in his sole central striker role.

    would be a great purchase. Wenger had the chance to bring him to Arsenal foe 100,000 quid. He didn’t and we paid the price

    Now AW. Get him!

    Chamakh is one of the best players at Arsenal. He was scoring for fun when he joined and was inexplicably replaced when ‘His Highness’ Robin Van Persie came back from injury. He needs a run of games. It’s no use bringing someone on for 10-15 minutes at the end of a game.

    Drogba too old – a non-story!

Crystal Palace and Reading FC aiming for Brighton captain



Crystal Palace and Reading FC are both eyeing a move for Brighton and Hove Albion captain Gordon Greer to add to their defences for next season.

Sources claim that both clubs want to sure up their defence meaning Greer could be playing alongside current Palace captain Paddy McCarthy or next to Matt Mills of Reading when the summer transfer window closes. 30 year old Greer only joined Brighton last summer and was immediately made skipper by manager Gus Poyet.

The 30 year old was awesome at the back for Brighton with his performances obviously not going unnoticed and although there is interest in the defender, it is unlikely that Poyet will want to sell his captain on after just the one season at the Community Stadium.

Brighton v Aston Villa Live Stream- Team News from Crunch Friday Night Clash at Amex



All eyes will be on the Amex Arena tonight as two sides with pedigree come up against each other as Aston Villa take on Brighton at the Amex Arena.

Both these sides will be looking to put on a decent run as both have very genuine ideas for promotion to the Premier League. For Aston Villa this season so far has proved something of a disappointment, with the side looking for an immediate return to the Premier League following last season’s relegation.

There are plenty of opportunities to watch this match through a Brighton v Aston Villa live stream.

Bet365 announced recently that they have streaming through their website, meaning you can watch the game through laptop, desktop and even through your mobile phone on the move.

You do have to make an initial stake to watch the game, but the picture does come in high quality and everything, as you would expect runs smoothly through the website.

We should be in for a mouthwatering affair between two sides who attract plenty of support.

For the latest Aston Villa team news visit the official site here.

Unfortunately, things have not exactly gone to plan with the side for the Villains, with Roberto Di Matteo dismissed after a string of disappointing results and Steve Bruce brought in to steady the ship and bring back the feel good factor to the Midlands outfit.

Bruce certainly has plenty of experience of guiding teams out of this division, and results have taken an upturn in recent months, with the side now five games unbeaten in the Championship, winning three of those, and the side is now nicely placed in 14th place and look ready to mount a serious challenge on the summit as we approach a busy Christmas period.

Indeed they may have to take a leaf out of Brighton, with the South Coast side absolutely flying at the moment and sit proudly in second place in England’s second tier.

Chris Hughton has done a remarkable job at the helm, with his side winning eight out of their last ten matches, and only losing twice all season, according to the BBC Brighton website.

In fact, promotion to the Premier League looks like it could well be on the cards with the side really looking threatening moving forward.

It could prove to be an absolute belter of a game, with both sides in superb form going into the International break.

Steve Bruce’s side will surely attract plenty of attention at a mouth watering price of 4/1, which does look a tasty price all things considered. Those who think Chris Hughton’s Brighton side can continue their remarkable run can pick up 4/5 on the home win, which does look a little short if we take into account the improvement by Steve Bruce’s side.

Both these teams would probably settle for a point, with the stalemate a very backable looking 5/2.

Whatever you decide, this one from the Championship is sure to get your footballing weekend off to a flyer, and after a mundane international break, its back to the nitty gritty of the English Football League.

And once this one’s over, don’t forget that Arsenal face Manchester Utd in the early kickoff on Saturday!

Full Throttle Ahead, Captain Klopp



The role of manager is often belittled in modern football, where a team’s success is seemingly pre-defined by a club’s financial outlay and the corresponding calibre of player purchase which accompanies it. The man on the bench can only influence so much, and is a hostage of fortune to the performances of the millionaires on the field before him.

All of that is completely inapplicable to the arrival of Jurgen Klopp at Anfield, a beaming monolith of German charisma replacing a man who once bounced with enthusiasm and energy but in recent months seemed to shrink in stature, reminiscent of a week old child’s birthday helium balloon.

Klopp’s appointment has changed Liverpool’s fanbase overnight from grumpy old men sitting around wondering if tomorrow would come at all, to excited children on Christmas Eve dreaming of what the next morning could bring. Their glee is justified. As is the nervousness from rival fans which greeted his appointment. A crumbling relic of ancient history, Liverpool FC once again looks alive with possibility.

In Klopp, Liverpool’s American owners have appointed one of the top three managers in world football and the club’s fans and most importantly the Liverpool players know that his arrival signals a dramatic shift in the direction of the club. Players such as Dejan Lovren or Joe Allen who had the backing of Brendan Rodgers will no longer feel secure in their positions, while others who have been “out in the cold” such as Jose Enrique will get a fresh impetus of hope. Whilst the Northern Irishman very clearly had difficulty controlling the strategy of LFCs now-notorious transfer committee, there is reason to believe that his replacement will have no such problems.


As much as the former Mainz and Dortmund manager has a reputation for being casual and entertaining, he has shown no lack of ruthlessness in the past. On his arrival at Dortmund, he found that club’s two highest rated players Alexander Frei and Mladen Petric were unsuited to his high energy style of play and so they were quickly moved on to pastures new, Basel and Hamburger SV respectively. He has often said that the 11 players who he selects may not be the best players at the club, but they will work best together. That should say it all to his new Liverpool squad.

His style is all about high energy and “countering the counter attack”, pressing the ball when possession is lost in an attempt to catch the opposition in transition and off balance. In defense, Klopp has never played with a three centre back formation so it looks like two of Skrtel, Lovren, Sakho (and Can perhaps?) will have to battle it out for the starting positions, while attacking fullbacks Nathaniel Clyne and Alberto Moreno should be ideal for the new system.

In midfield, Jordan Henderson should suit the role of the energetic ballwinner and sit alongside a deeper lying, good passer such as in the short term Lucas. Up front Daniel Sturridge showed he can play in a similar setup during Liverpool’s sensational 2013/14 campaign when playing alongside Luis Suarez. Christian Benteke would be a bit of a departure for Klopp as he never played with a targetman as such, but the Belgian’s “lack of mobility” is overstated if not outright unfounded.

Of all the players who should shine under Klopp, it is new signing Roberto Firmino who could benefit most. Having suffered a slow start to his Reds career, a wide left berth cutting in behind either Benteke or Sturridge with service from Philippe Coutinho in the No.10 role should suit his skills perfectly and show the Premier League why the club paid Hofffenheim £29 million for his services.

On Fanfeud, the game by game fantasy football site, you can select 5 players from any Barclay’s Premier League fixture. Your players gain points based on goals scored, assists provided and minutes played. In this Tottenham v Liverpool clash, my recommended selection would be to back predominately men in Red shirts. Players are always keen to impress their new manager, and it is not just any manager in their dugout, this is Jurgen Klopp. They will either show themselves good enough to be Liverpool players, or they will be shown the door and it all starts this Saturday lunchtime.

1 Daniel Sturridge
2 Roberto Firmino
3 Philippe Coutinho
4 Christian Eriksen
5 Harry Kane
