Arsenal Crushes Man Utd. 3-0!

The EPL has been full of surprises so far this season. It looks like my Chelsea isn't going to win it this year and we would be lucky to even earn a spot in the Champions League next season. Manchester City seemed like the favorite to win it, but then got crushed by Tottenham 4-1 last week.

And...now this happened.

Goal: Alexis Sanchez (6')

Assist: Mesut Ozil

Goal: Mesut Ozil (7')

Assist: Theo Walcott

Goal: Alexis Sanchez (20')

Assist: Theo Walcott

Louis van Gaal was certainly not happy and said,

"I didn't expect that. I was surprised - not performing our game plan, not the will to win. I didn't see that. We were top of the league so I was surprised - amazed, maybe that is a better word. When you give a team like Arsenal so much space to play football, then you know that you shall lose. And we have prepared ourselves also in that way, to play more contact but don't lose your aggression. It was amazing for me and I am very disappointed."
Well, we've seen eight EPL games so far and Man City's in first, Arsenal in second, and Man Utd. in third.

At this point in the season, who do you think is going to be the EPL champion this season?

I'm also interested in hearing y'alls opinion on this one!

what a great match it was. I was watching with friends and we were stunned after 20 minutes. city look like the team to beat. Arsenal can play the best football but it's hard to rely on them.being consistent.
Interesting weekend all up with Rodgers fired and Sunderland losing Advocaat as well. Not mentioning your team or mine @mchlyang
@InPlainSight Yeah...can't believe they already fired Rodgers! Do you think they'll try to get Klopp?
Great job you've done with this card. I believe it's pretty hard to point at a team and say it would be its season so far, but i share you that Man City appeared to be the champion at the beginning. It still quiet early to bet on any team. Actually, the same thing is in LFP! That what keeps it interesting.
@InPlainSight They're in 10th place right now...so realistically, Klopp's goal should be to take them to the Top 4 so they can compete in the Champions League next season

20 Clubs in 20 Weeks: Arsenal
In a new weekly feature, we take a look at the clubs competing in the Premier League right now. This week we start with one of London's oldest and most successful clubs Arsenal. Nickname: The Gunners (supports often called the Gooners) Founded: 1886 Location: London, Middlesex, England Current Ground: Emirated Stadium Opened: 2006 Capacity: 60, 338 Last Year's Finish: 4th, Champions League 4th Round Qualifying Arsenal are the oldest club in the top flight. They were founded in 1886 and turned pro, joining the Football League in it's infancy in 1888. They played in the Second Division before first earning promotion in 1902. They played there for 11 seasons before their relegation in 1913 to the Second Division. In 1915 the First Division voted on who to add to the top flight in a controversial move as the First Division expanded to 22 teams from 20. Arsenal were promoted and have been in the top flight ever since. Arsenal's first big success started once Herbert Chapman took over as manager and in 1926 they finished 2nd in the First Division. In 1927 the Gunners made their first FA Cup final before finally winning it in 1930. Arsenal soon after won their first top flight title in 1931, scoring 127 goals in the process. They lost the FA Cup Final controversially in 1932 and finished 2nd that season in the First Division before winning it again in 1933. Chapman suddenly and tragically died in 1934 with Joe Shaw taking the reigns. Shaw oversaw the 1934 and 1935 title winning squads before winning another FA Cup in 1936 and the First Division a 5th time in 1938. World War II then suspended football until 1946, which saw Arsenal lose the FA Cup final, this time to West Ham. Two years later they won the First Division a 6th time before winning the FA Cup in 1950 and the First Division in 1953 on goal difference no less. Arsenal then struggled, not winning any trophies for almost two decades before their FA Cup & First Division double in 1971. Arsenal finished runners-up in 1973 before their worst First Division finish in almost half a century in 1976 in 17th. under manager Terry Neill they turned things around, making 4 FA Cup Finals between 1976 & 1980, winning the cup in 1979. When George Graham took over the club in 1986, Arsenal were on the decline before the former player managed to help guide the Gunners to their first League Cup in 1987 and another First Division title in 1989. The club's success really started to come to a forefront, winning the First Division title in 1991 and the FA Cup and League Cup double in 1993. In 1996, the club was looking for a new manager and made a surprise appointment with Arsene Wenger taking charge of the club. Arsenal improved incredibly under his management, finishing 3rd in 1997 and missing out on the Champions League on goal difference. In 1998, Arsenal won the now Premier League & FA Cup double, repeating the feat in 2002. In 2003, Arsenal won the FA Cup before their 2004 Premier League title winning campaign solidified themselves as only the 2nd ever side in England to go the entire top flight season unbeaten, earning them the nickname "The Invincibles". They won the FA Cup in 2005 before making their first and only Champions League Final in 2006, a loss to Barcelona. Arsenal then went 9 years between trophies, having just won the FA Cup last season in May 2014. Arsenal have been known for their attacking play and beautiful football style, including a lot of ticky-tack passes and never-ending flow. Their manager, Arsene Wenger is also still in charge of the club and is the longest tenured manager in the Premier League today. As of today, Arsenal sit 5th in the league and have qualified for the Champions League every year since their 1998-1999 season in the competition.
EPL Match of the Week: Arsenal vs. Man City
We've got one match this week that stands out above the rest, and it comes to us on Monday afternoon, 2PM ET. It's Arsenal vs. Man City - who takes it? City are coming off a good win over Swansea City, though they left it to late to steal 3 points. It was an important win for them as they kept pace with those at the top of the table. Midfielder David Silva is back from injury and is playing super football, showing again how valuable he is to this team. They just aren't the same team without him. With his form plus that of Raheem Sterling and Kevin de Bruyne, City have maybe the league's most powerful midfield. Goalkeeper Joe Hart is in great form in net, too, and is saving some real stunning shots to keep City safe. 32 points from 16 matches puts City right toward the top, fighting neck and neck with other title contenders. The often-criticized Olivier Giroud is in the form of his life for Arsenal at the moment, coming off a huge hat trick in the Champions League against Olympiacos to secure Arsenal's advance to the knockout stages. He scored again last week against lowly Aston Villa and is proving to everyone that he can be the main striker for a title-winning side. Mesut Ozil is also incredibly impressive week in and week out and has a ridiculous 13 assists in the league this season. Arsenal sit ahead of City by just one point, with 33 from 16 matches. My pick This is a very tough one to call. With the match being played at the Emirates and Arsenal's form as strong as it is, I'm going to have to take the Gunners. I'll say 2-1 to Arsenal in a big win. Who takes it for you? @InPlainSight @AbdulrahmanSaad @trinityarcangel @thefeels @MarcusJiles @DerekGumtow @havic @yaakattackk @bnzatton @SherzTYCi @krishntejanand @addri @mishthi @andwas @NimishMathur @Sydsocquet @starli @kyleatekwana @BenjiPhilip @Eduardo14 @AshfakEjaaz @EmanueleYagoda
EPL Arsenal's for the taking?
Arsenal beat Man City in what is surely one of the biggest EPL results we've had this season so far. And guess what? It was the exact score that I predicted! Arsenal 2, Manchester City 1. That's why they call me the Sports Guru ;) This, as they say, was a true 6-pointer. City could've leapfrogged Arsenal with a win and moved to within 3 points of Leicester, but instead it's Arsenal who will enter Christmas in 2nd behind the leaders Leicester City. A stunning goal by Theo Walcott got the scoring started - he curled one around Joe Hart, leaving the keeper no chance - and Olivier Giroud doubled the advantage before the half with a clever finish of his own, continuing his amazing run of form that has him playing the best football of his life. Yaya Toure hit a classic Toure goal - the sort we've seen from him from time to time over the past 5 or so seasons, where he curls a one-time effort into the top corner - but it wasn't enough for City, who will rue some missed chances by Kevin de Bruyne and others. A great game, but Arsenal are the ones to walk away with the points. At this point, I think we have to see Arsenal as favorites to win the league, even though Leicester top the table. I think everyone - Leicester players included - believes that at some point their form will slip. I think they have an excellent chance of finishing top 4, but I don't think they'll hold on long enough to win the league. And Arsenal look to have turned a corner with their form, as they are finally finding consistency and winning matches against difficult opponents. With Ozil, Giroud and Walcott in the form they are, plus an excellent defense that has allowed just 14 goals in 17 matches, I think Arsenal have what it takes to win the league this season. What do you say? Gunners to the title? @InPlainSight @AbdulrahmanSaad @trinityarcangel @thefeels @MarcusJiles @DerekGumtow @havic @yaakattackk @bnzatton @SherzTYCi @krishntejanand @addri @mishthi @andwas @NimishMathur @Sydsocquet @starli @kyleatekwana @BenjiPhilip @Eduardo14 @AshfakEjaaz @EmanueleYagoda
Healthy Lifestyle as a Path to Self-Improvement
“What is a healthy lifestyle?” Our grandmothers would have asked twenty years ago. Now this concept is gaining more and more popularity. The basics of a healthy lifestyle are a minimum of bad habits with a maximum of useful ones that contribute to improving the quality of life of people. If before the main elements of a stylish young man or girl were an active club life, indispensable cigarettes and a glass of alcoholic cocktail, now social networks are full of images of beautiful and toned bodies in training rooms. A photo of a plate with chicken breast and vegetable salad will gain much more “likes” than pictures of a pan with fried potatoes on a beer bottle background. Healthy lifestyle comes quickly and inevitably: shelves with organic products, farm meat and vegetables are already beginning to appear on shelves in stores, sports halls are opening. Reasons for the popularity of healthy lifestyle A correct lifestyle contributes not only to an overall improvement in the state of the body, but also to the appearance of the person. What are the criteria for a healthy lifestyle? This is a rational diet, physical activity corresponding to a person’s age and condition, a good sleep and many other little things that positively affect the state of the human body. Anyone who follows the basic rules of a healthy lifestyle compares favorably with others: he has a fresh complexion, good posture and a lively look, always full of energy , the desire to try something interesting. It is impossible not to notice him against the background of people with gray puffy faces, voluminous bellies, shortness of breath and stooped backs, with difficulty carrying themselves through life from the couch to work. He who observes the main components of the healthy lifestyle clearly understands how much effort and time he needs to maintain himself in perfect condition, so he will not spend a second on meaningless or unpleasant actions. This is especially valuable in the age of high technology, when every minute counts. Healthy lifestyle components A healthy lifestyle is a combination of several basic elements, including the following: - proper nutrition; - physical exercise; - healthy sleep; - rational distribution of time; - refusal of excesses. All these components of a healthy lifestyle are fundamental. It is a mistake to think that in order to change life, it is enough to change one thing. You can’t give up part of bad habits, and be content with it. Fundamental changes are always needed for fundamental changes. Each person has a different character, and where one can, by a willful decision, immediately abandon all that is superfluous, the other will better abandon the idea of self-improvement, fearing the burden of future worries. Therefore, psychologists advise not to rush to apply all the main components of a healthy lifestyle at once, but to do it gradually in order to first unconsciously accept the basics of a healthy lifestyle and make changes easier to transfer. Where to start a healthy lifestyle A healthy lifestyle begins with a person realizing that he does not live correctly. And for everyone this happens in different ways: someone notices a too big figure on the scales, someone feels unsatisfied, broken, tired, someone constantly gets sick. Sometimes people for years come to the idea that just a diet or prevention of colds is not enough to solve their problems. And it seems to them that they are leading the right way of life, since they abandoned any one component of the past: they quit drinking or smoking, started going to the gym or went on a diet. However, HLS is not one small concession, but a large set of measures for self-improvement, and although it should be started small, we must strive for more. Such components of a healthy lifestyle as regular exercise and proper cooking cannot just be discarded or replaced with less time-consuming options. Healthy lifestyle and its components The main components of a healthy lifestyle are not the only ones, but they are the basis of a new mode of existence, which should not be taken as punishment or torment, but as a kind of peak, the achievement of which is interesting and exciting. It is not necessary to rest only on the basic elements. There are other healthy lifestyle factors , such as, for example, spiritual practices, psychological training, and the community of fans of the rules of a healthy lifestyle that help to exchange experiences with other adepts. Balanced diet This is the cornerstone that holds the other components of a healthy lifestyle. Depending on the physical condition of a person, on the principles that he practices, nutrition can be different: healthy eatingsomeone prefers vegetarianism, someone raw food diet, paleodiet becomes an outlet for someone. There is no one true option, as there is no one most correct spiritual practice, because all people are different, and the ways that lead them to a state of inner harmony are different for everyone. One thing is certain for sure: nutrition is always included in the basics of a healthy lifestyle in the forefront, since the spiritual state directly depends on the body. The body is actually a “box” for the soul, it is impossible to get to what is inside without changing the container so that you can freely engage in the state of content. Nutrition has a huge impact on health, not in vain for many diseases, doctors prescribe certain diets. Sport lifestyle Without physical activity, it is also impossible to talk about self-improvement. An unsportsmanlike person is often melancholy, inclined to forgive his minor weaknesses. He has no habit of loading muscles, overcoming himself, he will easily violate the basic principles of a healthy lifestyle due to the lack of self-discipline. Sport not only heals, it also contributes to the formation of a beautiful appearance, and the joy of contemplating the reflection in the mirror, the pride, pleasure that people receive when they look at the updated version of themselves, only support their desire to observe the right lifestyle. As a basis for a healthy lifestyle, sports are simply irreplaceable: exercises help improve blood circulation, joints, stimulate the production of certain hormones, improve the general condition of the human body. Gyms offer a huge selection of different activities for people of all ages and physical abilities, so even old age cannot be an obstacle if you want to start a healthy lifestyle. Rational distribution of time Some factors of a healthy lifestyle underestimate, in particular, the ability to distribute time in such a way as to comply with all the principles of a healthy lifestyle. A feature of cardinal changes is the inextricable relationship between the amount of effort spent on preparing for them and the process of mastering the unusual rules of a healthy lifestyle that will allow this lifestyle to be called truly healthy. A healthy lifestyle requires self-denial, a willingness to spend part of the time providing yourself with wholesome foods, preparing appropriate dishes, and training. It takes less than half an hour to cook semi-finished products. On a trip to the store for the appropriate ingredients, cooking will have to spend more time, and you need to do this constantly. After all, what is a healthy lifestyle? This is a steady, constant adherence to certain rules and its chosen components, and the components of a healthy lifestyle cannot be applied partially and irregularly, otherwise these will be random moments against the background of ordinary existence. Refusal of excesses In real life, a healthy image has little to do with the concept of a beautiful or thin body. Not everything that leads to weight loss is beneficial, and sometimes in an attempt to achieve a visual effect an unprepared person comes to the opposite - diseases, poor health, and dissatisfaction with oneself. Proper nutrition and a sporting lifestyle alone will not give full effect, if at the same time you continue to allow yourself obvious excesses that pathologically affect the general condition of the body, accustom it to general relaxation on the verge of being optional and destructively affect the healthy lifestyle itself and its components . Therefore, excesses are not only smoking or drinking alcohol, but also the habit of breaking the correct regime, allowing yourself to deviate from some important postulates, and so on. Allowed weaknesses Not every person has a strong character, everyone should only do what they can master, gradually, taking small steps, moving forward, one at a time accepting the rules of a healthy lifestyle. It is sometimes necessary to allow oneself to deviate from them; weaknesses will only help to observe the principles of healthy lifestyle, if they are: 1. Really rare; 2. Small and well controlled; 3. Do not lead to systematic violations of the main components of a healthy lifestyle. To smoke one cigarette once a month, gradually increasing the period between smoking to two, three or more months - this is a minor weakness, which allows at the initial stage for a person who comprehends the very basics of a healthy lifestyle. Smoking a pack of cigarettes every day instead of one and a half, without reducing the dose at the same time, is already a harmful habit that affects the subconscious: if you are allowed to continue smoking, then you can afford to continue to eat fast food and skip workouts. Healthy lifestyle criteria Willingness should consist of internal messages, because no advice, persuasion or requirements will force a person to follow the basic principles that are necessary to bring his life into a state of at least relatively healthy, if there is no need to change. But even with such an aspiration, one should not forget that you should not rush into the pool of self-improvement thoughtlessly. The criteria for healthy lifestyles appeared for a reason, they are justified.666 For example, with a number of diseases it is impossible to violate a prescribed diet, even in order to lead a healthy lifestyle; one should not try to perform sets of exercises for trained athletes through force, if the physical form leaves much to be desired - instead of benefit, there is a high probability of injury; attempts to achieve an enhanced effect by changing the terms of diets to large ones will turn healthy food into a dangerous hunger strike, and excessive zeal will turn into harm instead of benefit. Knowing of limits You can’t talk about the rules applicable for the transition to a healthy lifestyle, without mentioning a very important point. There are healthy lifestyle factors that significantly affect the outcome, and one of them is a sense of proportion. The right way of life is built on limitations, self-discipline, building a system of habits that allows you to maintain a healthy lifestyle and its components in the long run. A person cannot exist in a regime of severe restrictions; moreover, they are usually developed so that there is no excessive psychological pressure, and chronic fatigue from self-denial does not occur. A sense of proportion - that’s what guides the experts who develop recommendations for nutrition, exercise and other components of a healthy lifestyle. Do not seriously violate the timing, diet, and so on, as this can become dangerous. Other healthy lifestyle factors Other aspects that affect the process of self-improvement include: - psychological preparedness for breakdowns; - the ability to replace prohibited products with others, since refusing is always more difficult than replacing with an analog; - the ability to consistently implement the plan and so on. What is healthy lifestyle? This is not only a certain group of basic elements based on physiological aspects, but also a huge layer of components lying in the field of psychology and fine tuning of the subconscious. Conclusion A healthy lifestyle and its components are steadily included in our reality: there are debates on the Internet about the best diets and exercise complexes, on television they talk about the many basics of a healthy lifestyle , in stores on the shelves there are more and more ecological products. A modern person simply cannot get out of reality, which teaches what HLS is, because we are all unique, and to preserve this uniqueness, to keep it as close as possible to an ideal state, is an excellent goal in life. The rules of a healthy lifestyle are not as complex as it seems at first glance, and sometimes it’s enough just to start to realize how necessary it was.
Real & “chiến dịch 300 triệu bảng”: Dàn SAO Ngoại hạng Anh về với Zidane?
Báo giới tại Madrid cho biết Real Madrid sẽ dự trù 300 triệu bảng kinh phí để tậu dàn ngôi sao Ngoại hạng Anh mùa sau. Tờ Marca mới đây đã đăng tải bài viết cho hay Real Madrid mặc dù không chiêu mộ được Paul Pogba trong mùa hè 2019 nhưng đã sẵn sàng để trở lại với thương vụ này vào năm sau. Và họ thậm chí sẽ không mua chỉ Pogba, mà cả một số cầu thủ Ngoại hạng Anh khác. Nguồn tin cho biết HLV Zinedine Zidane mặc dù vừa có một mùa hè mua sắm đắt đỏ nhưng vẫn chưa có được đội hình ưng ý, khiến ông bị mất điểm trong mắt chủ tịch Florentino Perez do đã được giao toàn quyền chuyển nhượng khi trở về dẫn dắt CLB. Tuy nhiên cách đọc kèo châu âu Zidane và giám đốc thể thao Jose Angel Sanchez đã đạt được sự nhất trí quan điểm với nhau, mà Sanchez lại là “cánh tay phải” của ông chủ tịch. Cả hai đồng tình rằng Real Madrid cần ít nhất một mùa hè mua sắm rầm rộ nữa để tạo nên một bộ khung hùng hậu, để những mùa giải tiếp theo họ sẽ không phải mua cầu thủ với số lượng lớn. Sự thống nhất quan điểm này đã khiến chủ tịch Perez cũng đồng ý theo để lên kế hoạch tuyển quân cho năm sau. Mục tiêu số 1 mà Zidane muốn vẫn là Pogba, và cơ hội của Real năm sau có thể sẽ rất cao do khi đó Pogba sẽ chỉ còn 1 năm hợp đồng với MU và đã phát đi tín hiệu rằng anh sẽ không gia hạn. Nhưng ngoài Pogba, Zidane còn muốn có hai cầu thủ nữa: N’Golo Kante của Chelsea và Christian Eriksen của Tottenham. Zidane muốn có Kante để Real không những có một cầu thủ cạnh tranh vị trí của Casemiro mà còn sở hữu một cầu thủ chơi bao quát sân, hoạt động box-to-box để hàng công Real có một mũi nhọn ở tuyến hai. Kante ban đầu được xem là một tiền vệ đánh chặn nhưng phong độ của anh trong vai trò tiền vệ bao sân cho HLV Maurizio Sarri ở Chelsea đã khiến sự đa năng của anh được đánh giá cao. Marca cho biết Real Madrid có thể sẽ dành vào khoảng 100-120 triệu bảng cho thương vụ mua Kante. Rất khó để Chelsea được thuyết phục bán Kante bởi hợp đồng giữa hai bên đến năm 2023 mới hết, chưa kể Real sẽ phải nghiên cứu khả năng thương vụ đổ bể do lệnh cấm chuyển nhượng của FIFA dành cho Chelsea. Nhưng người thứ hai, Eriksen cá độ bóng đá trực tuyến , có thể sẽ dễ hơn cho đội bóng Hoàng gia. Tiền vệ người Đan Mạch đã rục rịch muốn rời Tottenham mùa hè qua nhưng không thành, và anh có vẻ sẽ không gia hạn với Spurs khi hợp đồng sắp hết hạn vào tháng 6/2020. Nếu Eriksen muốn đến Real thì việc của “Los Blancos” chỉ là chìa ra một hợp đồng hậu hĩnh vào tháng 1/2020 tới, thời điểm Eriksen bắt đầu được đàm phán với một CLB mới theo luật Bosman. Eriksen có thể sẽ không tốn của Real xu nào, nhưng với vụ Kante và Pogba thì Real sẽ phải chuẩn bị một số tiền vào khoảng 300 triệu bảng để thanh toán. Theo Marca, Zidane coi việc mua 3 tiền vệ hàng đầu này sẽ là bước cuối hoàn thiện đội hình Real để cạnh tranh trong nước với Barca & Atletico Madrid, và chủ tịch Perez cũng sẽ chỉ cho Zizou mua sắm “thả cửa” nốt lần này.
