Francis Coquelin: A Case Of Defensive Sophistication And Offensive Abstinence

“Wazzat?” I suddenly awoke on one of the many flights I’ve had to take recently, sleep-mask askew and drool plastered on headset. After adjusting my bearings, I looked over to see an unnaturally happy flight attendant looming over me, jawbones stretched till the lands of infinity. “Would sir like something to drink?” I thought and decided that sir *would* like something to drink. “We have orange juice and pineapple juice, sir,” the attendant tittered, maw still parted in an admirable Grand Canyon imitation. “Alright, I’ll have an orange juice.” “Here is your pineapple juice, sir.” I mouthed wordlessly but the attendant was already off, an ephemeral wood-sprite of confusing hospitality. I checked around to see if the flight doubled up as a set of a Coen Brothers movie, shrugged, and proceeded to attack the pineapple juice. *** Hardly the most gripping of stories, I know, but it does in this case serve as a mediocre segue into the domain of […] Read more »

Liverpool FC are jolted by the news that their youth sensation Raheem Sterling has decided to move out of the club after the current season concludes. Sterling was roped in by Liverpool in the year 2010 from the academy of Queens Park Rangers. He grew up as a promising young talent and got his first major break in the senior side in 2012.

Sunderland Survive As Wenger Rues Lack Of Sharpness Upfront

Sunderland produced a gutsy rearguard action to preserve their Premier League status with a tense 0-0 draw against Arsenal on Wednesday. Dick Advocaat was reduced to tears at the final whistle as his side delivered another great escape despite Arsenal laying siege at their goal during the second-half Arsenal created a host of chances but were held to a goalless draw by Sunderland on a frustrating evening at the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal’s task ahead of the match was straightforward: win and automatic entry to next season’s Champions League was their prize. In fact, a draw would pretty much do it too, considering their superior goal difference to fourth-placed Manchester United. To that end, […] Read more »
