    Zesh Rehman has already won two trophies in Malaysia, including the Malaysian FA Cup. At the age of 30, Zesh Rehman has already played for more clubs than most would in a lifetime. Currently at Malaysian Super League [MSL] side Pahang FA, the Pakistan international defender chose to return to Southeast Asia in 2010 after spells at Fulham, Queens Park Rangers and Bradford (as well as a host of loan clubs) and has never regretted the decision.

    James Milner’s Manchester City future is in doubt, with the England man unhappy with his lack of game time so far this season.Milner started tonight’s game on the bench, but made a solid substitute appearance when brought on in the 2nd half,  contributing to City’s late surge for a winner.Alas, Milner showed just why a parody Twitter account exists in his name (‘Boring James Milner), as he spouted more cliches in the space of 2 minutes than you could shake a stick at.Some of the highlights:‘No easy games in the Champions League‘We wanted to win, but it…

  • All the questions surrounding a Chivas USA hiatus

    30 Sep 2014 | 8:12 am
    On Monday the news broke that Chivas USA could indeed be going on a hiatus for at least two years. ESPNFC reported the updated news that a new owner is buying the club for $100 million dollars. But even with all the hiatus talk, it left with more questions than answers. I’ll do my best to answer them as much as I possible can here. I’m sure I am leaving out a ton of other questions but these seem to be the bigger ones in my head at the moment. 1. What will happen to the current roster? If anything this current roster will likely get blown up in a way along with the team. This…

    18 Sep 2014 | 6:21 am
    I posted this over at BigDSoccer.com, thought it was worth brining over here as well. There had been whispers of a new MLS logo for some time. I believe I was told two years ago that the league was looking into a re-brand that would likely happen before too long. It turned out that the league wisely waited for a new logo to be reveal before their 20th season. A year that does indeed mark a new chapter in the league’s short history. The new logo is set for a grand debut tonight in New York as EA Sports releases FIFA 15. The old logo has always been something I’ve been fond of.

    Andres Iniesta has always seemed to be one of the athletes who simply doesn't look much like an athlete. He could pass for a professor, doctor, or computer programmer, rather than one of the world's elite in his sport. Now his generation of Barcelona players is fading a bit, and the dynamic pairing of Xavi and Iniesta in midfield isn't what it once was. Time does that. Apparently, Iniesta has interests off the field as well. Check out his cooking class!

    In a week in which Mexico had to confront racism in the homefront after local Queretaro politician Carlos Trevino called new signing Ronaldinho an “ape”, the performance of the players on the field became almost an afterthought. Queretaro, to the club’s credit, swiftly denounced Trevino’s churlish statements that he made on his Facebook page, posted partly because he was angry about the traffic caused by the presentation ceremony of the Brazilian star. Though the club called for Trevino to be punished for his prejudicial commentary on social media, all that appears to have…

There’s a chance Jack Wilshere might be available for Sunday’s trip to Chelsea although he’s a doubt for tomorrow night’s Champions League clash, while Mikel Arteta’s calf strain seems to be the bog standard three week job.

  • Tactics Column: Mesut Ozil looks leftfield in search of inspiration

    blogger@arseblog.com (Arseblogger)
    29 Sep 2014 | 2:24 pm
    Mesut Ozil found form of sorts for Arsenal on Saturday in their 1-1 draw with Tottenham, delivering a performance that showcased his usual understated subtlety, but one without producing the telling, final punch. He had one big opportunity at the start of the second-half, gliding into space on the right-hand side before receiving a neat pass from Jack Wilshere, but his shot was hit rather tamely at Hugo Lloris. By this time, Ozil was playing in his preferred position behind the striker as Arsene Wenger was forced to switch away from the 4-1-4-1 that saw Ozil start on the left following Aaron…

    Monday morning and we pick up the pieces from Saturday’s draw with Sp*rs. The main issue, of course, is the injury situation ahead of a busy week in Europe and the Premier League. Mikel Arteta and Aaron Ramsey are both out for Galatasaray and Chelsea, while Jack Wilshere is a doubt after what looked to me, at least, a nasty ankle turn. Given his reaction straight after it happened, and the way his ankle folded, I was genuinely surprised he stayed on. It’s not the first time he’s taken a blow to that ankle this season and when you remember it was that one which caused him to…

    Match report – Player ratings – By the numbers – Video While I’ve always said form and quality are factors which fade in a North London derby, there’s no doubt we dropped two points yesterday against a pretty average Sp*rs side. Sure, we showed once again that going behind isn’t the end of it (I think that’s the fourth time we’ve done it this season and not lost), but that’s a habit we need to get out of, rapidly, rather than a trait to be applauded. After beating Villa so convincingly last weekend with Mesut Ozil deployed centrally, we…

    On a night when Manchester City looked to kick-start their European campaign following an opening day defeat to Bayern Munich, it was actually Rudi Garcia’s excellently drilled AS Roma side who will leave the North West of England much the happier side. Manchester City Joe Hart – 6 Hart made a number of impressive saves to keep City level. However England’s No. 1 goalkeeper will be ruing his rotten luck after a slip hindered his ability to close down Francesco Totti’s goal.

Hull Raids The Flanks When Ahmed Elmohamady went on trial with Steve Bruce’s Sunderland in 2009, the Egyptian flank-raider changed his career. The Wearside club tried to sign the converted right back, but failed to bring him to the Premier League until a season-long loan was penned a few months later, and after impressing at right back, Elmohamady was signed to a permanent deal.

The results were simply not good enough. The once mighty AC Milan was a mess on and off the pitch. During Allegri’s reign with the Rossoneri, several players including Andrea Pirlo, Mark van Bommel, Filippo Inzaghi, Pato, Gennaro Gattuso, Massimo Ambrossini, Gianluca Zambrotta, Clarence Seedorf, Alessandro Nesta, Thiago Silva and Zlatan Ibrahimovic all left the club, be it to another club or through…

    Injured Arsenal forward Olivier Giroud will soon be rewarded with a two-year contract extension with the Gunners. Manager Arsene Wenger announced during his Tuesday press conference that the deal will be ironed out and completed shortly. The new contract will keep the France international at The Emirates until 2018. Giroud, who just turned 28 on Tuesday, is surely the most polarizing player in the Arsenal squad. While the lanky center-forward scores goals and has a solid work rate, some fans get frustrated with the Frenchman’s play at times. Nevertheless, there is no denying the fact that…

The more things change, the more they stay the same. Mikel Arteta tweeted that his recovery process has already begun whilst Aaron Ramsey is reportedly out for up to six weeks, which more or less takes him out until the November internationals where I am sure that exertions for the Welsh will twang his other hamstring.

    Former England and Manchester City star Rodney Marsh believes that Liverpool should have spent their summer cash on a “world class” striker and not on Mario Balotelli or Rickie Lambert. The Reds sold Luis Suarez to Barcelona for £75m during the last transfer window and spent the money brought in, plus around £30m extra, on a host of new names.

On the whistle, players must leave their ball and sprint around the flag and back to their original ball. On returning to the balls, the players must pick up their own ball. Practice this drill a couple of…

    Switzerland bound Even though FC Basel got hammered by Real Madrid in their opening Champions League fixture, that result means very little for a Liverpool side that continues to stall and stutter at every turn. Maybe last year we’d be able to say that we’re going to take advantage of their precarious position, but with this years incarnation of the Reds looking quite different from the barnstorming side of the past season, it could very well be the Swiss taking advantage of our own on-field problems — as we’ve seen in recent weeks, there are more than enough of them…

    It was a tough trip to France for Barcelona, as the Blaugrana suffered their first loss of the new season, going down by 3-2 to Paris Saint-Germain in a wild, entertaining match on Wednesday. Goals from David Luiz, Marco Verratti and Blaise Matuidi, all happenning on defensive mistakes by Barça did a lot of damage. Despite the best efforts from Neymar and Messi, that scored two beautiful goals, the team weren't capable of coming back to tie the game, and the first negative result of Luis Enrique's tenure as a coach came in a painful way. Here's hoping we can bounce back quickly from this.

They use a 4-3-3 formation, with Jeremy Menez as the focal point of a flexible and dynamic front three. Inzaghi has brought back enthusiasm but improvements are needed, especially in defence.The two centre-backs that started against Parma are both out, which means that Christian Zapata and Adil Rami are likely to start.Stephan El Shaarawy is expected…

We will definitely find a solution regarding the renewal of my contract. I read in the papers about the figures that I have asked Milan for (€3-3-5m), but those figures are far away from the truth.""Inzaghi wants the us to change the formation from 4-3-3 to 3-4-3 when we're attacking. We always try to play the ball instead of just kicking it up the field. Inzaghi is obsessed with ball possession and combinations.""Menez’s goal vs. Parma? It was true magic.

Laurence Griffiths/Getty Images Last seasons league winners spent relatively heavily during the summer, reinforcing and bringing depth in key areas, but the side who finished third last term splashed out heavily on proven recruits to not only give a better starting XI, but a better overall balance to the squad. Manager Jose Mourinho has long been a successful manager with a clear blueprint…

    Practice 1. Structure Set up the area as above suiting the needs of your players and numbers available. Play around with various formations. Rules The attackers  collect a ball and attack the goal. They obviously are trying to score in the goal. If the defenders win the ball they must try and hit one of the nets on the full (no bounce). The ball is always live unless it leaves the pitch. If this happens the attackers collect another ball. When they run out of balls that’s your time to ask exploratory questions.

    Poppies4Kits is working with support of the Royal British Legion to raise funds for the Poppy Appeal.   After seeing the Premier League stars raise thousands by having their shirts embroidered with the poppy emblem, we thought it would be a fantastic idea if all youth clubs could follow the lead of the Premier League clubs and have poppies on their shirts, especially for this year, the 100th anniversary of the start of the First World War. The problem we acknowledged however was that shirt embroidery is permanent whereas the Poppy Appeal usually lasts for roughly a month, with poppies being…

    Tottenham have hopefully now found a manager who is not going to shoot himself in the foot, the way Harry Redknapp, Andre Villas-Boas and Tim Sherwood have all done.Bumping into a fellow Spurs fan in the street we discussed the rights and wrongs but were both of the opinion we think Mauricio Pochettino is here to stay for a while. As ever with Spurs fans there are even two sides to a manager, or head coach as we now should be calling him, staying at Tottenham for any period of time.Were Redknapp, Villas-Boas and Sherwood sacked or did they effectively sack themselves, were they backed or…

He immediately endeared himself to Spurs fans with his passion and work ethic. However his career never progressed and a series of managers have determined that work without an end product wasn't good enough.Under Mauricio Pochettino he had again displayed that work ethic and looked as if this season he would be the understudy to Erik Lamela, however Holtby wanted…

    Tottenham are being linked with a winter transfer window move for prolific striker Jackson Martinez, however the time to buy him was probably the window just gone.Of course to buy a striker we have to offload a striker, remember we don't have any spaces available for a non-home grown player in the squad, we are only allowed 17.The Porto hit man has a £35 million ($56.80m - €44.81m) release clause in his contract and bids this summer didn't reach high enough for Porto who would have been happy to sell had bids reached an acceptable level. The Colombian has a contract until 2017 and as well…

    Former Fernabache star, Joseph Yobo has revealed Arsenal could be discussing a move for him with his agent. Yobo who is currently a free agent after he was released by Fernebache this summer was reported early last week to be close to a move to Arsenal. “I read Arsenal was interested in me; it was news to me,” Yobo said “If negotiations are taking place, I am not aware.

    Arsene Wenger has come to the defence of Mesut Ozil in the wake of criticism fired at him in recent games. Ozil won the World Cup with the German side but since arriving has not been his best which must have been due to his playing on the left. The German had hinted early last week he is his best when he plays from a more central position rather than playing wide. With Wilshere, Rosicky, Ramsey and Cazorla  currently in the squad, Wenger revealed he might have to play some players in newer positions as he hopes to blend the theme. “Of course,” Wenger said on accommodating all his…

Defensively, Spurs looked more solid, with goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, and beleaguered captain Younes Kaboul especially putting in brilliant performances. However, in attack, Spurs looked lost, and there was a concerning lack of tempo and fluidity from an attack that should…

Arsenal rallied and got the equalizer through Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain but failed to give the home crowd a game-winning goal. Here are three…

The most noticeable change was the fact that Kaka has overtaken Clint Dempsey as the league’s highest paid player, earning a guaranteed $7.2 million-a-year in his contract with the new franchise Orlando City. The Brazilian star is closely followed by Michael Bradley, and Jermain Defoe as well. These salaries are hardly small, and even compare to those of stars across the pond in Europe.

  • Manchester United v West Ham Match Preview

    Haydn Cunningham
    26 Sep 2014 | 1:28 am
    An agonising 6 days have passed since our second half self destruction took place at the King Power Stadium. Despite coasting 3-1 against newly promoted Leicester City, naivety and extremely poor defending saw us end up losing 5-3. Thankfully for us our game has been scheduled on a Saturday which means I won’t be able to watch the full 90 minutes on Sky Sports which could be a blessing if our woeful defending continues against West Ham United at Old Trafford. A West Ham side who have spent a lot of money on their attack, similarly to us but the difference being this was their weakness.

    It was meant to be the start of our season but our defensive frailties were once again exposed with maximum effect as we surrendered a 3-1 lead to lose 5-3 to newly promoted Leicester City. However, a pivotal moment in the match was the dubious decision for Mark Clattenburg to award the home side a penalty with the scores 3-1 in United’s favour. Rafael was clearly shoved over by Jamie Vardy and as Vardy raced in towards the penalty box, Rafael managed to regather his position and Vardy simply fell over as Rafael went past him. If that was deemed a penalty then the shove by Vardy was 5…

    The summer transfer window was certainly one to remember for Manchester United fans. We have become accustomed to United just gradually introducing one player per season to add to the already talented jigsaw puzzle we’ve built over the past couple of decades but for Louis Van Gaal’s leadership, Ed Woodward has brought a host of new names through the Old Trafford door. We already had confirmed Luke Shaw, Ander Herrera and Angel Di Maria which took our summer spending to over £100million but deadline day also brought two new big name signings into the club. Daley Blind has been a…

    It seems as though Manchester United can’t just have a settled week where they gain 3 points in the league and prepare for the next Premier League fixture of the schedule. Instead, we’ve endured a torturous few days where we disappointingly dropped points at Sunderland and then faced the embarrassment of losing to MK Dons 4-0, in the Capital One Cup 2nd round. However, sandwiched rather reputably in the middle of these two failures was the British record signing of Angel di Maria from Real Madrid for £59.7million. It smashes the £50million Chelsea paid Liverpool for Fernando…

    Arsene Wenger has confirmed French striker, Olivier Giroud, has signed a new deal, which will keep him at the club until 2018. The Arsenal frontman had two years remaining on his previous deal, it’s now believed he’s tied down for another two years with his wages increasing to £80,000 a week. It would seem Giroud has been rewarded following a consistent two seasons at the Gunners, scoring 41 goals in 102 appearances following a £13m move from Montpellier to the Emirates. 22 of those goals came last season as he played a big part in helping Arsenal to a top four finish in the…

The incident led to the striker being given his marching orders by the referee, Lee Mason, and he’ll now miss three Premier League games, two of which are against Everton and Chelsea, games which could be key in United’s quest to finish in the top four. Louis van Gaal’s selection headache may now ease slightly, with the club captain out of the picture, he’ll be able to play Radamel Falcao and Robin van Persie as the two main…
  • Costa still struggling with hamstring injury

    Jose Mourinho has revealed Diego Costa is not currently fully fit despite a blistering start to life in the Premier League. With eight goals in just six league games for the former Atletico Madrid striker, Premier League defences may be worried about what a fully fit Costa is capable of. During the latter stages of his time in La Liga, the 25-year-old was in and out of the Atletico Madrid squad due to a hamstring injury and it looks as though he’s still troubled by that same injury about six months later. Mourinho has already been quoted as saying Costa is unable to play three games in…

The billionaire’s lawyer, who infamously downed a pint of lager while in the stands of a Magpies home game, has claimed Ashley was merely humouring reporters outside of a London pub.

    Ronald Koeman has given Nathaniel Clyne the ultimate compliment, claiming he is one of the best right backs he has worked with in his 15 year managing career. The Dutch legend is making his Premier League debut this term and has managed some well established full backs during his managerial career, including Michael Reiziger, Jan Kromkamp, Miguel, Joao Pereira, Maxwell, Hatem Trabelsi, Zdenek Grygera and Felipe Luis, so Koeman obviously holds Clyne in very high regard. The Southampton defender is yet to make his international bow at senior level for England and his manager believes he’s…

    Liverpool did not lose today. We didn’t win… but we didn’t lose. Reds fans I know have been acting like we lost, but it is not so. We did quite well, there are positives to take from the game. I watched us hold a 1-0 lead until past 90 minutes. Gerrard’s free kick was spectacular and unstoppable. There were many times when we looked like the better side, and only the result makes Liverpool worse than we actually are. Did we play well enough to win? I think so, yes. Did we actually just lose some concentration for a moment inside of injury time and concede a goal that…

But I’m getting ahead of myself. We’ll talk about all 14 penalties but let me tell you about earlier events of this game first. The line up Liverpool had started with wasn’t what you might expect, Steven Gerrard did not even appear on the substitute bench.

    For all the worrywarts out there, (and let’s be honest there a few in red shirts at the moment) at this stage last year  (when David Moyes was in charge) United had 7 points, this time round Van Gaal has only five. Now, last year, every fan would tell you that seven points at that stage in the season was a terrible start, in fact, it was a blooming nightmare start for United. One that David Moyes never truly recovered from. But, what of van Gaal’s start to the season? If last year’s start was a nightmare, what will the fans make of this atrocious start to a season?

    I have spent the past week complaining about Danny Welbeck’s exit from Old Trafford and in one sentence (uttered in a recent press conference) Louis Van Gaal demonstrated why he is the manager of Manchester United Football Club, and not me. When again challenged about Welbeck’s departure the Dutchman pointed out that 27 goals in 141 games does not compare as well as say Wayne Rooney or Robin Van Persie. So, a lack of goals was, apparently, van Gaal’s primary reason for allowing Welbeck to leave the club and on that logic I can’t fault him. From value for money point of view that is…

    Welbeck scores two for England but was still only good enough to be allowed to leave Untied for £16 Million. It’s not often the Red Devils let go a free scoring full international player. I must say that it was nice to see England win the game against the Swiss and put the trauma of the World Cup performance behind them. The score was a little flattering to an England side who laboured for long periods, however, it is the result that counts and it is three points in the qualifying bag, so to speak. Either way, it was good to see a United player scoring on international duty… oh yes,…

Interestingly, it tells you something of the players calibre when he is loaned out to arguably a higher placed team. Let’s be honest, Real Madrid are amongst footballing royalty… so why did United let him go? Was Hernandez first choice for the Spaniards?  Unlikely, in…

    Danny Welbeck has been told he can leave United, however, the only stipulation is that he can only go to a team outside of the top seven clubs. Whilst new manager Louis Van Gaal has the right to change personnel as he sees fit I was disappointed to suddenly see United fans commenting that Welbeck was not of United quality. The boy plays for England for goodness sake! It will be a shame to see him go but I can understand Van Gaal wanting to free up some money and a squad place. As it stands, the Dutchman likes to play one or two strikers up front but rarely three. With three big name strikers…

Dominate possession, concede first, chase the game and leave with injuries. It’s past the point of joke now with the amount of big name injuries we get season […]

  • Football – who knows what can happen??????? – the unexpected thats what!!!!!!! and Ryder Cup thoughts

    A team that has spent over 150 million pounds in the last transfer window (and have won the most top flight titles) lead a newly promoted team (who spent less than 20 million in the same window) 1-3 after 60 minutes. A controversial refereeing decision and a shambolic collapse later, they ship four goals in 21 minutes and end up losing 5-3. To top it all, they have a player sent off by the referee. A great win for the team who have just returned to the top division after a 10 year gap, especially factoring in that the visitors had never ever given up a two goal lead and then lost the match in…
  • United are back – NOT!!!!!!! – just yet, Roger to complete the set??????? and a Festival that has been and gone but will hopefully return

    So Man Utd are BACK!!!!!!! – cough cough cough. Well if you spent over £150 million pounds on players – beating QPR, who were also one of the newly promoted teams, at home, has to be a pre-requisite surely. All the 4-0 win tells me is that with the addition of the newly acquired players there is some light at the end of the tunnel for Manchester United fans, but one win means nothing, it has to continue if they want to be challenging for a top four place, let alone the title. They need to keep a pace as they have the advantage of not being in the Europa League (and now the League…

    I always like to wait until the international break (and the closing of the summer transfer window) to comment on how the Premier League season may pan out – though making an accurate judgement after just three games each is ridiculous really but here goes anyways ;DDDDDDD – In table order:- Chelsea – Pre-season title favourites and they have done nothing to disprove this theory. Did most their transfer business early doors (the signing of Cesc Fabregas was a masterstroke) – supplemented by Loic Remy, once busted flush Torres was loaned to AC Milan towards the end of the…

    So if you believe the reports Manchester United are in crisis, well personally I’d go with on the edge of crisis as they have only played one important game. However in the next week they have three huge away matches, poor results, especially in the league matches and THEY WILL BE heading into the international break IN CRISIS. The sad thing, for the fans anyways, is that a lot of this is self-inflicted by the club who unfortunately have become arrogant and did not move along with the times as other teams have done. When Sir Alex Ferguson left, in my opinion, that is when you show your…

    AC Milan have started their season incredibly strong and could very well upset last years champions.Under the new manager (and former Juventus player) Pippo Inzaghi, the Rossoneri have won each of their first two games with scores of 3-1 and 5-4. They use a 4-3-3 formation, with Jeremy Menez as the focal point of a flexible and dynamic front three. Inzaghi has brought back enthusiasm but improvements are needed, especially in defence.The two centre-backs that started against Parma are both out, which means that Christian Zapata and Adil Rami are likely to start.Stephan El Shaarawy is expected…

    "My contract renewal? There’s no doubt in my mind that I want to stay at Milan. We are currently in talks. I feel at home at Milan. We will definitely find a solution regarding the renewal of my contract. I read in the papers about the figures that I have asked Milan for (€3-3-5m), but those figures are far away from the truth.""Inzaghi wants the us to change the formation from 4-3-3 to 3-4-3 when we're attacking. We always try to play the ball instead of just kicking it up the field. Inzaghi is obsessed with ball possession and combinations.""Menez’s goal vs. Parma? It was true magic.
