Today, AW and the boys travel up to Anfield for the first times since Andrey Arshavin struck 4 goals last season.

Morning all. We travel to Portsmouth today with AW is still looking to nick 3rd place but I don’t think there is enough time. With games running out and a six point gap between us and Chelsea I just don’t see it happening. However I do firmly believe in momentum and a good result today […]
PGL: Good morning all. So we face Boro today and with Chelsea winning yesterday and Villa only managing a draw it looks like 4th spot will be ours this season so these last few league games are about keeping momentum and keeping our players fit for the Champions League games. A clean sheet today would […]
One of my favourite things about this time of the season is that the big games keep rolling around. No time for feeling sorry for ourselves. It’s ‘stand up and be counted’ time. I’ve decided not to rant on about why our Russian Wonder didn’t start on Saturday, lets just say I haven’t been that shocked since […]
PGL: So off we go up North today to the home of pies, a sometimes suspect pitch and a much changed Wigan side. Any game played after Europe is tricky but this one has a bit of extra difficulty… This Wigan is a better side than we think they are. If we go out with […]
PGL: So the world richest club roll into LDN today after that god awful international break that came at just the wrong time for our resurgent side. We are without RVP, Diaby, Eduardo and Nasri for todays game but Theo, Ade and Cesc all return to the squad. My guess is Cesc will start today […]

“Once more unto the breach, dear friends” … so the dust has barely settled on another 0-0 draw and we go to the Hawthorns to face bottom side West Brom. Three points are much needed for all sorts of reasons and on the face of it you’d be entitled to think we’ll get them, but […]

PGL: So it’s the last day of January, we’re 5pts behind Villa, 6pts behind Liverpool and Chelsea and 8pts behind United. Not where we hoped but not as bad as some are making out. This week I’ve been in touch with the Editor of Hammer website
PGL: Good morning insiders. It’s another late Saturday kick off, man I hate these games! I think we’ll see an unchanged side with Nasri in the middle again.

PGL: Morning Insiders. We get to forget about all the transfer window bull today and get back to the football. Kolo comes back into the side alongside Djourou, and Denilson makes a come back.
