How should Arsenal approach their match with Reading to avoid a let down?

Fresh off an international break, Arsenal will take on Reading for the third time this season. Will the visitors be able to impress Nigel Adkins in his first match ahead of the Royals?

The life of an Arsenal fan requires patience, an open mind, belief and did I mention patience? Every season turns into an emotional roller coaster, but unfortunately for Arsenal fans, that emotional roller coaster has been unable to reach anything more appealing than a Champions League spot in the last eight years.

Once again, the 2012/13 campaign is coming down to the wire, and Arsenal fans are hoping their North London neighbors will once again throw away what once looked to be a commanding and comfortable lead. 

On paper, Arsenal has more than enough talent to brush aside a team like Reading with ease, but that can be much easier said than done. Looking at their previous two meetings this season, Arsenal should enjoy a high scoring affair, but with Nigel Adkins now in charge, things could be different.

Manchester United on course to lift 20th league title despite unattractive performance against Reading

Sunday March 17 2013,
Tags: Manchester United, Wayne Rooney, Alex Ferguson
A 1-0 victory over manager-less Reading courtesy of Wayne Rooney’s deflected strike was good enough to place the Red Devils 15 points clear at the top with just nine games to go.
A 15 point lead at this time of the season for the league leaders, and with less than ten games to go, almost certainly ensures yet another Premier League trophy for the red side of Manchester.

United were efficient enough not to concede a goal at home against Reading. They have already conceded 31 goals this season, but the 69 goals that they have scored along with it give them an enviable goal difference of 38, 13 above rivals and second place Manchester city.

However, this result could give enough confidence for the Gunners to finish the EPL campaign strongly. This Saturday, Arsenal play Swansea City at 11:00 a.m. EST, hoping to take advantage of Spurs’ slip away to Liverpool last weekend.

Manchester United must focus on the league to prevent a repeat of last season

Saturday March 16 2013,
Tags: Manchester United, Reading, Robin Van Persie, Wayne Rooney
Manchester United return to the league after disappointing outings in FA Cup and Champions League fixtures, the league leaders must now do their utmost to not lose their concentration and maintain their lead over City.
The Red Devils suffered a major setback to their treble dreams, as they were controversially knocked out by Real Madrid in the Champions League. United were then under persistent media scrutiny as news surrounding Wayne Rooney’s imminent departure surfaced in top newspapers in England. There were further concerns when Ferguson’s men surrendered a two goal lead against Chelsea last week in the FA Cup semi-final.

United were infact lucky to not crash out of two tournaments in consecutive fixtures, after Juan Mata forced a great save from David De Gea in the dying moments of the match and United ultimately survived, now having to play a replay of the fixture.

Reading vs Arsenal Preview

Sunday December 16 2012,
Tags: Arsenal, Reading, Premier League, Arsene Wenger
Bottom of the table Reading will welcome Arsenal to the Madejski Stadium on Monday as the hosts look to get out of the last spot in the Premier League table.

Arsenal's defeat to Bradford City in the Capital One Cup is still very fresh in everyone's mind, so the Gunner's will be under pressure once again. The last time Arsene Wenger's squad won an away match in the Premier League was back on October 6th as they bounced back from an early West Ham goal to win 1-3.

The Gunners elimination from the Cup may well have sent ripples through the Arsenal locker room, but bouncing back from it will be important. 

After the match, Arsene Wenger continued be the same way he has been throughout his Arsenal career and preferred to highlight the fact that his squad gave it their all on the pitch, opposed to pointing fingers at his players that he so often defends.

Reading vs Arsenal Preview

Monday October 29 2012,
Tags: Arsenal, Reading, Capital One Cup
Arsenal's last few performances have not been very exciting, with the last coming at home against Queens Park Rangers. Arsene Wenger's side will now travel to the Madejski Stadium to take on Reading for the Capital One Cup.

Despite winning their last match in the English Premier League, Arsenal fans have not been very happy with the teams performances. A trip to take on Reading could turn out to be a tricky fixture for the Gunners.

Both teams have met a total of nine times in their history and Arsenal has been victorious in all nine of the matches. Not a very favorable stat for Brian McDermott's side who has also not been able to win a match in the Premier League.

The home side would love to pull of a shocking victory on Tuesday, but they are well aware of the challenge the face.

"I'm sure they want to win trophies—of course they do—but they always qualify for the Champions League, which is a phenomenal achievement in itself," said McDermott.

Liverpool vs Reading Preview

Friday October 19 2012,
Tags: Liverpool, Reading
Reading’s return to the top flight has not panned out the way it could have. They sit eighteenth in the table and their next opponent is Liverpool.
Liverpool’s fortunes in their last three matches were mixed. They took out a Norwich side which had been bleeding goals 2-5. They then lost at home to Udinese 2-3. They followed that up with an almost expected 0-0 draw with Stoke. Liverpool currently is transitioning from one style of play to another. They have left directness behind and are now focused on controlling possession and moving forward.

Brendan Rodgers’ side sits eighteenth in the table. They have already taken on two of the ‘big boys’ in Manchester United and Arsenal. They controlled parts of the game against Arsenal. Their play in the final third was not sharp enough and Arsenal cruelly punished them on the break. United might have been lucky to beat Liverpool; however it must be said that the Merseyside team failed to take advantage during their periods of domination.

One English Premier League comes up in midweek and it is Chelsea vs Reading. Watch the Blues feature in their first home match of the 2012/13 EPL campaign.

Chelsea grabbed all three points in their first fixture of the 2012/13 English Premier League campaign.The first round of fixtures in England’s top-tier league involved great goals and stunning results. On Sunday, Chelsea managed to escape Wigan Athletic’s underdog threat at the DW Stadium. First-half goals from Branislav Ivanovic and Frank Lampard offered Roberto Di Matteo a positive start to the season.

Meanwhile, a day earlier, Reading avoided defeat in dramatic fashion on home soil. The newly promoted boys went a goal down due to M. Kightly’s 34th minute strike. However, a 90th minute penalty decision saw Le Fondre keep his cool to drive the ball home at the delight of the home crowd.

Can Reading build on that draw and stun Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday? After only one match, the Blues find themselves in fourth position with Fulham, Swansea City and West Bromwich Albion occupying the first three places in the English Premier League table.
