I've been going to watch Arsenal for over 40 years - supporting my team through thick and thin. Arsenal is my one team, for life, and I will continue to pay my hard-earned cash to join thousands of supporters each weekend to cheer, celebrate, and commiserate too.

The last time I saw a left back that detached from the rest of his team was Ashley Cole's famous team photo at Roma. You had to feel for Ben Davies at...

Doukara's Screamer For Leeds Utd Is An Instant Man Flu Cure

Rob Atkinson | Posted 27.01.2017 | UK Sport
Rob Atkinson

Doukara's volley changed all that, it's given me a proper fillip and probably earned me a good healthy night's sleep before tomorrow's capital adventure. And for all of that - and for the three points at the expense of the Twiglets - I am, believe you me, most profoundly grateful.

Clean sheets have so far come more often for Karius. He has managed a 'shutout' once every three games, while for Mignolet it was an average of 3.8 in his debut season.

Liverpool Should Be Wary Of Sentimental Steven Gerrard Reunion

Andrew Headspeath

Should Gerrard return as a non-playing member of the Anfield staff, which seems at least a medium-term certainty, the Liverpool hierarchy will need to be mindful that his role, whatever it may be, doesn't prove a hinderance to Klopp's existing plans and ideas.

Many people have tried to stop Zlatan Ibrahimovic scoring goals for fun over the years and it looks as though someone has finally been successful. That's right, Jose Mourinho seems to have cracked to code to make Zlatan less than mortal...

Tales From The Top Flight

Chris Darwen

I thought I would break up today's column with something very, very funny for once. Yes, none of the usual tongue-in-cheek, poke fun stuff here. I am going for downright hilarious. Yaya Toure's agent has claimed both United and Arsenal are interested in his client. I'll just leave that there for a second and you can decide for yourselves whether there is any point in me continuing today. I mean, I'm not going to top that am I?

Kloppo Did Some Very Nice Business On Deadline Day

Chris Darwen | Posted 05.09.2017 | UK Sport
Chris Darwen

You can often get a feel for a new manager by the substitutions he makes to change a game. I'd just like to point out that Sam brought on Walcott and left Vardy, yeah you know the one that led Leicester to the Premier League title last season, on the bench. Still, he has taught Lallana to actually hit the back of the net so progress is being made, right?

Jurgen Klopp Has Brought the Noise Back to Anfield as Liverpool Gun for European Final Return

With the merciless battering of Everton, he emphatically snatched all bragging rights which are precious in a period when Liverpool's superiority complex over the Toffees has been thin at best. Now, he has the opportunity to transform a sometimes torturous campaign into one worth savouring.

The Hillsborough Verdicts May Bring Closure for Families and Survivors - But This Must Not Be the End for Those Who Caused Untold Pain

The verdicts may be the final step towards closure for many of the families and survivors of that fateful day and that is to be welcomed. However, it must not be the end for those whose denial, deceit and deception caused untold pain over the agony of loss.

Liverpool Are a Club Torn Between Their Past and Their Future

Chris Deeley | Posted 24.03.2017 | UK Sport

It might chafe at Liverpool fans to hear it, but they could do a lot worse than to look to Spurs as a guiding light. The Reds have done the 'overhaul' part of the job over and over again, but they've never stuck around long enough to put in the 'patience' part of the equation.

The League Cup Joke Has Gone on Long Enough and It Needs Shutting Down

Chris Deeley | Posted 04.03.2017 | UK Sport
Chris Deeley

At a time in English football where the fixture list is growing ever more crowded, there is less and less of an excuse for the League Cup's continued existence as an institution. The abolition of FA Cup replays might knock a single game off a team's fixture list in a given season, but getting rid of the League Cup gives a guaranteed break to every single club, and would knock multiple games off the schedule for most big clubs.

Why Liverpool's Pursuit of Alex Teixeira Doesn't Make Much Sense

Aiden Cusick | Posted 29.01.2017 | UK Sport
Aiden Cusick

While Teixeira may solve a particular problem, is he that much better than Firmino, who scored his fair share of goals in a tougher league than Ukraine's and finally appears to have turned a corner after a transitional six months on Merseyside? £38million is an excessive amount to spend on only a slight upgrade - £50million is careless.

Jurgen Klopp and Gegenpress

Gegenpress. Like a pop star turning up to a school disco, it took the Premier League by storm. No longer had the beautiful, eloquent idea of tiki-taka graced the world of football, than had it been swept aside by its violent, aggressive cousin.

The Honeymoon Period Is Over for Jurgen Klopp as He Realises Full Extent of Liverpool Challenge

Matt Gault | Posted 22.12.2016 | UK Sport
Matt Gault

After going 1-0 down to a hotly controversial Nathan Ake strike in the second minute at Vicarage Road, Liverpool failed to muster up any kind of decisive response. They were weak, sluggish and bereft of ideas as Troy Deeney and Odion Ighalo mercilessly bullied Klopp's back-line.

Are Liverpool the Dark Horses for This Season's Premier League Title?

Scott Saunders | Posted 27.11.2016 | UK Sport
Scott Saunders

Liverpool can't be at their best every single week. But we've seen what their best is - and who knows, there could even be more to come - and it puts them at least on par with the country's top teams on their day. If a consistent level of performance can be found over the next two thirds of the season, Liverpool may go closer to the title than a lot of people think. Dark horses? Maybe...
