Report: Man. United 1-0 Arsenal

By Randy Osae Arsenal will have to come back crawling for a berth in Rome after been thoroughly subdued by the champions in first attempt of this semi-final. Tonight’s succumbing drew similarities to their last visit to that so-called ‘theater of dreams’ – a 4-0 FA Cup mauling – but thanks to Almunia’s almost impervious […]

Report: Arsenal 2-0 Middlesbrough

By Randy Osae A fab-ulous captain’s contribution capped a scrumptious football exhibition from Arsenal which will resonate all the way to Old Trafford ahead of Wednesday’s Champions League semi-finals.

Steve Bruce’s side nearly pushed Wenger’s men to the limit, but yet again, the Gunners prevailed with class and character in an away league encounter. Arsenal had been […]

Report: Villarreal 1-1 Arsenal

By Randy Osae Like their last European travel in Rome, Arsenal walked out of EL Madrigal slightly edging out shoulders tonight. In what was perhaps a script of two halves, Arsenal erased an early reverse with a priceless and exceptional equalizer from Emmanuel Adeabyor which leveled and settled matters right in the favor of the […]
