Match Preview: Arsenal vs. Aston Villa – Premier League 01.02.2015.
It seems like Sunday’s clash brings us two clubs moving in very different directions—Arsenal, winners of four in a row (and boasting of three clean sheets to boot), and Aston Villa, whose only wins of late have come against Championship sides Bournemouth and Blackpool in the FA Cup. They’ve not scored a Prem goal since mid-December and haven’t won a Prem match since beating Leicester in early December. Here’s hoping that we can add to that list of woes on Sunday.
"Charlotte, I'm getting breaking news. Hold the press. We need to head over to The Britannia where I'm hearing that Eidur Gudjohnsen has signed a six month deal with Stoke City" Jim White declares as his yellow tie glistens like a cheap Christmas Tree before the camera pans to Bryan Swanson. His cheeks puffed like a chipmunk Brian manages to mask his fear with a wry smile as the Orcs surrounding him yell "WHEEEYYY". A pink dildo enters from the side of the television screen and stabs his ear, undeterred, Bryan keeps his composure. This is Transfer Deadline Day after all. There are only two a year and these are the two most important days of the football calendar.
Throwback: 3 of Arsene’s Best Arsenal Signings
Whenever a new transfer window opens, Arsenal are linked to an incredible array of players from around the world. Manager Arsene Wenger has a strict transfer philosophy, however, and one which compels him only to invest heavily on occasions where players are able to justify their market value. While this has occasionally restricted Arsenal’s transfer activity and drawn criticism, however, such an ethos has enabled Wenger to sign some of the worlds’ most talented youngsters and mould them into world class players.
