What Athletes Should Do to Stay in Shape

In a training or off-season program, an athlete's main aim should be to limit the risk of injury. Improving strength and flexibility, strengthening weak connections, correcting nutrition habits, and improving sleep patterns are 4 major components of any off-season training program. There are a multitude of ways to achieve those goals. In fact, athletes should tailor each component to their own strengths, weaknesses, and requirements. To perform at a high level and avoid injuries, it is necessary to have a high level of flexibility and mobility in performance. The off-season is an excellent time to increase joint mobility and flexibility in major muscle groups. Maintain a healthy diet Certain food is needed for the human body to function properly. At every meal,

Roy Keane vs Patrick Vieira – The Premier League’s Greatest Rivalry

Keane vs Vieira rivalry

One of the most debated topics in football is the rivalry between Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi. Both players always show respect to one another and claim competition is healthy in pushing them to perform to their full potential. Their rivalry is rather tame in comparison to Roy Keane and Patrick Vieira's legendary battles against each other on the pitch. For much of the early 1990s Manchester United dominated the Premier League, winning four of the five titles between 93 and 97. Central to that success was their domineering and relentless midfielder from Ireland. Keane’s drive, determination and all-round excellence established him as the best midfielder in the country. When Eric Cantona suddenly retired in 1997, Keane was named United captain by Alex

Arsenal’s Three Most Iconic Players!

Arsenal Club Legends

The Gunners brought the foreign invasion to the English shores and refined the Premier League era with the Invincibles. They've got style class and they play the beautiful game the way purists demanded it should be played. From boring Arsenal to lifting trophies at Highbury, the support is waiting for the true glory to return, the Gunners remain proud. The list of stars that have faithfully turned out in the red and white is long and lustrous. The club earned their trophies and fame on the back of a combination of leg breakers and magic makers and no three players represent it better. Here is my list of the true icons that define Arsenal Football Club. Arsenal Legends Tony Adams Adams was the king

Tony Adams – Arsenal’s Greatest Ever Centre-back!

Tony Adams legend

In modern-day football the idea of a player staying with one club for his entire career is rare. The transient nature of football today simply makes it impractical but even by the standards of football a generation ago Tony Adams was exceptional. Adams made over 600 appearances in his professional club career, all for Arsenal. He made his debut when he was barely 17, was appointed club captain at 21 and remained so until he retired 14 years later. For most of that time, he stood at the top of the game despite suffering the brutal effects of alcoholism that could easily have scuppered his career. Adams joined Arsenal aged thirteen in 1980, leaving school two years later to fully concentrate

Has Mikel Arteta Found The Perfect Combination


When you look at Arsenal over the past few years, their biggest criticism has been the defence and for all the attacking talent on show at the Emirates, leaks at the back have proved to be their ultimate undoing.While because of this, their latest managerial incumbent has perhaps tilted the balance the other way and with Mikel Arteta making a rather strong case for his defence, it has arguably come to the detriment of their attack line. However, on the evidence of their Premier League goals against record this season, it is fair to say the ends have justified the means and after conceding just 25 in 24 outings, it equates to an average of 1.04 efforts breaching their net per

‘Like Zidane’ – Remembering 2013 Aaron Ramsey

The long-anticipated news has landed. Aaron Ramsey has signed a pre-contract agreement with Juventus. The deal will see him move to Turin in the summer and reportedly earn over £400,000 per week. Eye-watering. If that figure sounds mind-bogglingly high, Italian sports journalist Gabriele Marcotti offered some clarification on the wage that sounds quite sensible. BBC reporting that Aaron Ramsey will earn £400k/week basic salary at Juventus. Been told it’s actually around €7.5m net which works out to £250k/week. As ever, can only go with what I’m told, but £250k/week sounds a hell of a lot more plausible. (If still rather high…) — Gabriele Marcotti (@Marcotti) February 11, 2019 His all-action midfield style as a number eight apparently does not fit in with Unai Emery’s tactical vision and

Post Highbury Blues – The Emirates Stadium Mare

The more things change the more they stay the same; an ever popular phrase often associated with Citizens of countries fed up with the usual rhetoric of political parties in Government and in recent times synonymous with disgruntled Arsenal Fans after a loss or a draw. On 8th June 2006, Club legend Henry scored the last goal at Highbury courtesy an 81st minute spot kick. After 93 memorable years it was time to bid adieu to the stadium that had given us the double winning teams, Arsene Wenger, Tony Adams, Liam Brady, George Graham, Dennis Bergkamp and the Invincibles. Like the biblical story of the promise land, the pilgrimage from Highbury to the Emirates was expected to be a dream

Arsenal, Caviar & The Road to Top 4 Recovery

“If you eat caviar every day, it’s very difficult to return to sausages”. This was Wenger’s famous reaction to fans agitation after a 1-1 draw with Middlesbrough in 1998. During that epoch, the benchmark for success was finishing above Sir Alex Ferguson’s Manchester United team, anything contrary was considered substandard by Arsenal fans. A move to Emirates Stadium while not forgetting an influx of foreign moolah into the Premier League weakened the club financially and competitively - Chelsea and Man City had come to the trophy party. Arsenal had migrated from title contenders to title pretenders, thus finishing 4th was now considered a trophy. After all, there was a reward of playing in the Europe’s elite competition (The Champions League). The
