Arsenal are they still a top four team?

With no trophies in the last six years are Arsenal the same power house everyone proclaims? Will Arsenal finish in the top four ithis 2011/2012 English Premier League season?

In the last two seasons they have slowly been losing and not replacing their seasoned players. Now that they have lost Cesc Fabregas and potentially Nasri Cesc who will fill the void in the midfield?  

Dont forget about Gael  Clinchy and Kolo Toure? Has Wenger lost his magic touch or is there more to the story that has made Arsenal FC become a feeder club.

Will Tottenham Hotspurs finally succeed Arsenal as the Super Team of North London? With the loss of Cesc Fabregas who will fill his shoes? Jack Wilshere, Aaron Ramsey or the injury prone Tomáš Rosický.

Cesc Fabregas contributed 100 assists, 57 goals in over 300 appearances for Arsenal. He has had the highest assists percentage in the Champions League for the last 3 seasons. 

I would love to see who Arsene Wenger brings in to fill the void? Who do you think Arsene will bring in to fill the void? Mata from Valencia?

I wish Cesc Fabregas the best of luck at FC Barcelona. It about time he starts winner big trophies actually any trophies.. lol. Forca Barca!

Beckham signs for spurs

Tottenham Hot Spurs boss Harry Redknapp  revealed on Saturday that Spurs made an approach to take the LA Galaxy midfielder on-loan for two months.

Redknapp also revealed David Beckham singled out Tottenham Hot Spurs as the club he would like to join after the player had a conversation with the Tottenham boss' son, Jamie, about the possibility of a move.

Beckham is thought to like Spurs' attacking style butJamie Redknapp said on Sunday he thought a deal was unlikely. "I don't think it will happen,"

The American side LA Galaxy are also yet to decide whether to allow the former England captain to depart during their close season, having seen him play just seven times in 2010 MLS season.

Beckham picked up an injury while on-loan at AC Milan  at the beginning of last year, effecting his season at Galaxy there after - a factor which could see the club deny the 35-year-old a move.

Great place to watch 2010 World Cup Football in Cape Town

If you are in Cape Town for the 2010 FIFA World Cup Football and you are looking for pubs to watch all the FIFA World Cup action make sure you stop by the following two pubs in Cape Town. The first pubs name is Rascals in Harfield Village off Rosmead Avenue. I was at this pub last Saturday for the Manchester United vs. Tottenham Hotspurs week 36 game! The atmosphere in this pub on match day is electrifying. It does not take long before you are sucked up into the whole vibe of the place. The locals are very friendly; the walls are covered with English Premiership memorabilia and on every wall is a LCD TV.

Rascal is also famous for its Pizzas and also makes an amazing curry!! If I was an English fan travelling to Cape Town for the FIFA World Cup I would not miss up the opportunity to have a few pints here!
Look out for my next post where I will mention the another great pub to watch all the World Cup Football action.

Danny Rose wonder goal!

Wow.....what an amazing goal from Tottenham Hotspurs Danny Rose! Will he ever do it again?? Who cares!! This is why I love English Premiership football.... now and again you get amazing goals that blow your mind!!

That win is sure to help Spurs claim 4th spot in the Premiership league table, Tottenham Hotspurs play Man Utd this weekend and then Chelsea!! The next two games are very important for this premiership football club!! Hey lets be realistic....Manchester City have a better chance of qualifying for fourth spot!!

All I can say is the next few weeks of Premiership football are going to be very interesting....imagine if Spurs beat Manchester Utd and Chelsea FC that would make for a really interesting title challenge, you never know even Arsenal could have a chance if that happens!

Owen Hargreaves nears Premiership return

English Premiership champions Manchester United will soon have Owen Hargeaves back in action as he is near the end of his injury succubus!

The English Football international played his last match for the Premiership Champions in September 2008 and has since been plagued with injuries during his time at Manchester United.

Owen Hargreaves returned to Man Utd's Carrington training complex two weeks ago after a season of rehabilitation.

"It is difficult to say an exact date but I do feel I can see light at the end of the tunnel now," Owen Hargreaves was quoted saying.

"Coming back to Manchester was a big step. Having people from United around me also makes me realise I am getting closer.”

"I am coming back to have a massive effect and to play well and for us to win titles.”

Let’s hope Owen Hargreaves can make a full recovery and get some Premiership games under his belt and you never know we might see him representing the English Football team at the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

Juande Juande Juande........what has happened to the great hope from Spain????? When you arrived you had a CV to die for and now it seems that you will be leaving spurs with your tail between your legs! I must admit I think there is more to the picture Juande Ramos's bad start to the season!

Preseason Tottenham Hotspurs looked unstoppable and then out of the blue we they start selling all of there tried and tested strikers! Two very good proven premiership strikers out and one last minute buy Russian striker! Don't get me wrong Roman Pavlyuchenko is a good striker and I think he will prove his worth in time! Last season Spurs leaked goals and now they can't score anything. How the hell can a club go from one extreme to the other. You would think Spurs would do whatever it takes to keep their strikers from last season and not sell them but know they go and sell the only good thing from last season!!!!!!
I believe people should stop looking to blame Juande Ramos and start looking at the people upstairs. Spurs have been through something like eight managers since Arsene Wenger took over at Arsenal!
Managers need to be given time to shape and mould their players and not kicked out the door at the first sign of trouble, imagine if Man Utd fired Sir Alex Ferguson after his first season! Do you think Man Utd would be the same club that they are today? It really goes to show it you are patient and don’t expect greatness in overnight you will be truly rewarded! Juande Ramos was in charge of Seville for three year and won the UEFA Cup twice, the UEFA Super cup, the Copa del Rey and also piped Real Madrid to the Spanish Super Cup. Now all that was achieved in three years imagine if Ramos was give three years to shape Tottenham Hot Spurs!  I will leave you with that thought in your head!!!

Is Benni worth more than £30m?

BENNI THRILL ... in-form Blackburn striker McCarthy is the Premiership's third highest scorer with 16 goals in his first season in England

Rovers boss Hughes also believes the South African has eclipsed Tottenham striker Dimitar Berbatov during their first season in English football. Benni and Berba — who both have 22 goals to their name — go head to head at White Hart Lane tonight with both clubs gunning for Europe.

At £2.5million, former Porto hitman McCarthy cost just a fraction of the £10.9m Spurs paid for Bulgarian ace Berbatov, 26.

Spurs Boss Martin Jol has claimed that he would put a £30m price tag on Berba, so how much would you put on Benni £20m.........£30m? Anyway you look at it both player would fit into any premiership side without a problem. without a doubt Benni would have to be one of the the buys of the season and has quickly established himself as a top Premiership striker.
