Crystal Palace and their poor excuse of a football pitch. Something should be done to prevent clubs in the highest league in England having pitches of that 'quality'. You are not allowed to wear earrings on the pitch because it's deemed as dangerous yet you are able to play on a surface that can cause injury. With even more money being pumped into this big business, I think it's only right that a certain standard of pitch should be allowed to play that football thing on. This is the point of the game right? Unless I'm missing something. Perhaps television companies would rather more upsets for their viewers to feast on so a nice leveler

Only recently we were all praising Arsenal's counter attacking approach against Manchester City and Aston Villa, but defeat to Tottenham in that defensive manner would not have pleased Arsène Wenger one bit. Not only that but the return of Danny Welbeck and Alexis Sanchez will have allowed Arsène Wenger to revert back to the front foot. I also wonder if it was no coincedence to partner Gabriel with Koscielny and not Mertesacker for our last cup game

As much as we all want him to dribble past three Spurs defenders and smash the ball past Loris Arsène will be thinking about what is most important. Is it worth having Alexis play 60 minutes and then snapping his hamstring again thus putting him out for 4-6 weeks? If his hamstring is not healed properly then that is quite likely to happen. Remember a few years back on the last day of the season we faced Newcastle at St James' Park. The race for 4th went right down to the final day, victory would give us 4th. Mikel Arteta had a thigh injury I think and was clearly not ready to return, whatever his injury was on the day, it flared up and he had to go off. It was the last day of the season so it didn't matter so much but the risk of losing a player for longer is high if you make decisions based

Since then, we have looked like a far better team collectively which is allowing the individuals such as Santi Cazorla to grab the headlines. It is far easier to express yourself on a solid platform. The obvious other important change to a few months back is that we have real life human beings in the squad. Not so long ago we had no midfielders available. The Southampton game is a perfect example of that. Here was a match against a current rival side for the top four places yet we field a midfield of Francis Coquelin, Calum Chambers and Santi Cazorla.

ith the signing of Gabriel and the resurgence of Coquelin the squad has a more complete feel about it now. So much so that keeping players happy and committed to the club could prove to be an issue. That seems to be the case with Chuba Akpom. The youngster is coming to the end of his deal and it seems as if he has many options which is why he

    So let me stop reminiscing of days gone by and let me focus on our Welsh wonder. Let me start off by saying that I think it is quite obvious that Aaron Ramsey is better in central midfield. His partnership with Mesut Özil, his running from deep and his underrated ball winning ability makes him a ...Read more
