I am sure that Arsene Wenger and everyone connected with Arsenal Football Club will have been a little worried when the fixture list for the new Premier League season were revealed, especially when they looked at the games set to be played after the dreaded Thursday nights in the Europa League.
Statistics show that football is the most followed sport in the world, with a fan base that exceeds 3 billion at a global scale. No wonder it has left its mark on so many aspects of our everyday lives – we see football stars and teams in ads, movies, tabloids, and news, and we see them in our favorite video games, too. And not only in high-profile simulators and management titles but simple, casual games as well. Today, let’s take a brief look at some of the most representative football-inspired casual titles you can play on the go.
Arsenal’s majority shareholder Stan Kroenke made a big speech about Wenger’s ability to lead the Gunners to big titles. “Our ambition is to win the Premier League and other major trophies in Europe.” Kroenke said. “It’s what the fans, players, staff, manager and board expect and we won’t rest until that is achieved. Arsene is the best person to help us make that happen.”
Rob Holding was pushing to leave the club in January in order to play more regularly, but is happy that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger convinced him to stay put. The 21 year-old joined the club from Bolton Wanderers last summer for around £2 Million, and has been used sparingly in his first season with the club.
Arsenal are desperately clinging to hopes of a top-four finish this season, but our chances may well rely on Liverpool bottling it.
The Reds sit one point ahead of us in the table going into the final matches this Saturday, and we need them not to win against Middlesbrough, while we need to beat Everton.
While Arsenal are still hanging onto the hopes of yet another top four Premier League finish after the recent run of wins continued this week with a 2-0 win over Sunderland at the Emirates, we are still at the mercy of the teams above us in the EPL table.
This weekend should put an end to the Premier League campaign until August, but there is a possible play-off on the cards for Arsenal.
Our side moved to within one point of Liverpool, and three of Manchester City, and are hoping to claw their way back inside the top four at the finishing line.
At the moment the full focus of Arsene Wenger, the players and anyone connected with Arsenal Football Club is on the fight to finish in the top four of the Premier League. Getting another crack at the Champions League next season is not the only goal for the Gunners to aim at, though.
