Cech concedes four in Arsenal defeat

Czech goalkeeper Petr Cech could do very little to stop Liverpool’s four goals this afternoon, as Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal were beaten 4-3 in an opening day thriller.

The 34-year-old former Chelsea stopper was not blamed as Arsenal fans on Twitter went into meltdown. Most of the blame was directed towards their veteran French manager.

Arsene Wenger was actually verbally abused during the game by Arsenal fans sitting near the dugout.

Petr Cech crashes his car

Leaving the Emirates this evening, Petr Cech’s day went from bad to worse after crashing his car into a bollard in the Arsenal car park.

The car looked pretty wrecked but fortunately the Arsenal keeper walked away unharmed. See photos tweeted by NBC Sports writer Joe Prince-Wright below.

Petr Cech angry post-Brexit

Results were in early this morning – The United Kingdom yesterday voted to leave the European Union.

Knocked out of Euro 2016 earlier this week, Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech is far from happy about the result and the campaigning methods of the Brexiters.

Petr Cech tweeted a video of Nigel Farage on GMB this morning in which the UKIP leader claimed suggesting the £350m would go to the NHS was a “mistake”.

Below is the shocking video Petr Cech was referencing in his tweet. The Czech Republic legend is part of London’s ‘Remain’ majority who are taking the result hard.

Jermaine Pennant’s “thoughts” on Brexit

Former Arsenal and Liverpool winger Jermaine Pennant was roundly mocked on social media for a ridiculous tweet in which he asked his followers if England would be in Euro 2018.

England will still be part of Euro 2020 but the Premier League is set to face some changes as the country departs from the EU.

Arsenal keeper Petr Cech recycles trash at training

Now playing at Euro 2016 with the Czech Republic, Arsenal goalie Petr Cech has uploaded an interesting video on social media on Wednesday revealing how he’s working on sharpening his reflexes and shot-stopping skills.

Showing himself to be concerned about the environment, Cech has reused empty water bottles at training.

The Gunners number one place a load of empty bottles on the floor near his goal, and the keeper was forced to stop shots which ricocheted off the plastics.

Czech v Croatia

The Czech Republic return to action on Friday when they take on Croatia.

The Czechs lost their opener 1-0 to Spain, meaning they need to get at least a point against Croatia to stay in the competition.

Croatia, meanwhile, looked excellent in their opening round win over Turkey.

Czech Republic v South Korea

The Czechs warmed up for Euro 2016 on Sunday with an international friendly against South Korea.

The Czech Republic are drawn against Croatia, Spain, Turkey in Group D.

The opening forty-five minutes went badly for the Europeans, who went into the break two goals behind.

Petr Cech at fault for the opener

The deadlock was broken in the 26th minute courtesy of a free-kick from Bit-Garam Yoon.

Arguably Arsenal keeper Petr Cech should have done better to keep out the set-play, as the ball entered the net right next to the goalie’s outstretched arm.

Tomas Rosicky set up number two

Former Arsenal midfielder Tomas Rosicky was at fault for the South Korean’s second of the game.

The experienced midfielder was robbed of possession in the middle of the park, and the visitors capitalised with a goal from Hyun-Jun Suk in the 40th minute.

Petr Cech hails Arsenal Player of the Season Mesut Ozil

Last week Mesut Ozil won the Arsenal Player of the Season award and Czech teammate Petr Cech hailed the German playmaker in an interview published by Arsenal today.

The 27-year-old Arsenal record signing bagged a mightily impressive 19 assists for the season and Petr Cech described his passing and vision as “extraordinary”.

“You could see that his overall game has been brilliant all year,” said Cech. “So he definitely deserves to get the Player of the Season award. He’s raised the bar for next season so good luck to him for being able to keep it that high.

“He has great vision and, whatever he sees, he sees it much better than anyone else. He can execute the pass as well or use that space, with his movement or his pass. His quality with the ball, his passing and vision is extraordinary.

“He sometimes sees things and you think, ‘There’s no way he can put the ball there because it’s too complicated’, but he always finds the way. Even with his finishing, he has the calmness in front of goal, picks his spot very well and he can put it wherever he wants.”

Chelsea legends Petr Cech & Didier Drogba have a Twitter bromance on anniversary of CL Win

The 19th of May will always hold special significance for Chelsea; the date of their first European Cup win.

The Blues won their first Champions League trophy in 2012, beating Bayern Munich on penalties – in Munich no less – to finally win ol’ Big Ears.

Chelsea haven’t even returned to the final since then, and it remains a landmark day in the club’s history.

So much so that some of the players who played in the game were nostalgically tweeting about it today (today being the 19th of May).

Petr Cech, who had a huge role in Munich (saving penalties in the shootout) tweeted a picture of himself in action.

Now at Arsenal, it’s clear Chelsea still have a huge place in Cech’s heart, and he’ll remain a legend in the fans’ eyes forever more, despite defecting to rivals Arsenal.

Didier Drogba retweeted his tweet with a message of his own, referring to his former teammate as ‘the best.’

The Ivorian of course scored the final clinching penalty for Chelsea in the shootout.

Man United’s David De Gea comes second to Arsenal’s Petr Cech

David De Gea lost a prestigious Premier League award in the final minutes of Man United’s last game of the season against Bournemouth last night.

That left Petr Cech as the winner.

Arsenal finish 2nd

In the end, Arsenal’s 2015-16 season wasn’t as bad as many had predicted.

The Gunners finished the season in second place in the Premier League, ahead of their bitter rivals Tottenham, who dropped into third after a 5-1 defeat at Newcastle.

Arsenal began the campaign signing Petr Cech from Chelsea. Indeed, the goalie was the Gunners’ only significant signing last summer.

At the time of the purchase, many predicted that Cech could earn the Gunners upwards of 10 extra points this season.

Petr Cech’s Golden Gloves

Following the 4-0 home win over Aston Villa, Cech was guaranteed to be the keeper with the best shutout record in the EPL this season.

The Arsenal stopper kept 16 clean sheets, which earned his the Premier League’s Golden Glove award.

Smalling screws DDG

Chris Smalling scored an unfortunate own goal in the final seconds of the Cherries match.

Had Smalling not diverted the ball into his own net, Manchester United keeper David De Gea would have shared the Premier League’s Golden Glove award with Cech.

However the own goal meant that Cech won the award all by himself.

Tweets on the topic are below.

Following the 4-0 home win over Aston Villa, Cech was guaranteed to be the keeper with the best shutout record in the EPL this season.

The Arsenal stopper kept 16 clean sheets, which earned his the Premier League’s Golden Glove award.

Cech can still share the title with Manchester United keeper David De Gea, if the Spaniard keeps a clean sheet in his final match of the season against Bournemouth.

For the record, Cech record his 16 clean sheets in 34 appearances.

Arsenal keeper Petr Cech panned after he’s beaten twice at his near post v Man City [Tweets]

What happened to those 12 points Petr Cech was suppose to give Arsenal this season?

The Czech international keeper was the Gunners only major summer signing last summer, however pundits repeatedly told Gunners fans that the stopper would be a hugely valuable member of their squad.

Cech was supposed to be a differential which handed Arsenal the title.

As we now know, Arsene Wenger’s side fell away badly in the title race, while on Sunday at Man City, big questions were asked of their keeper.

While Cech is undoubtedly one of the top stoppers around, he was twice beaten at his near post at the Etihad Stadium.

In the first half Sergio Aguero drilled a low show past the Arsenal goalie.

After the break, it was Kevi nDe Bruyne’s turn to fire a shot from outside the box into Cech’s near post.

Tweets on Petr Cech’s performance against Man City are below.

Fair play to Petr Cech for fronting up to the TV cameras after Arsenal 1 – Crystal Palace 1.

But, Cech struggled to explain just how Arsenal managed a 1-1 draw against The Eagles, having dominated possession for so long.

A first half goal from Alexis Sanchez looked to have put Arsenal in charge of the game, but substitute Emmanuel Adebayor teed up Yannick Bolasie for the equaliser with nine minutes to go.

Some Arsenal fans felt Cech should have done better on the goal – the former Chelsea goalkeeper hailed the strike from Bolasie, and seemingly felt it was too good a hit to reach.

Arsenal keeper Petr Cech explains the best way to intimidate the opposition (Video)

Petr Cech


Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech sat down with the Arsenal media team for an interview on how he mentally deals with football matches.

The legendary Premier League stopper revealed what he thinks the best way to intimidate the opposition are.

Petr Cech spoke about the importance of putting pressure on the opponents and giving them as little time on the ball as possible.

Watch the whole interview if you’re interested in some goalkeeper tips from arguably the Premier League’s greatest ever keeper.

Arsenal fans can’t understand why a fit Petr Cech isn’t starting [Tweets]

UEFA Champions League 2015/16 Group Stage Group F Arsenal v Bayern Munich Emirates Stadium, Hornsey Rd, London, United Kingdom - 20 Oct 2015

He was deemed the signing that would turn Arsenal into champions. His experience and medal collection were what would transform the Gunners from also-rans into the dominant force that could fulfill its potential.

It hasn’t quite worked out that way but Petr Cech has been one of Arsenal’s best players this season after moving from Chelsea in the summer. He only lost his place after a bout of injury kept him sidelined.

So why on earth is a fully fit Cech on the bench rather than keeping net against West Ham?

This is the question that perplexed and peeved Gooners are asking on Twitter as David Ospina continues in goal. The Colombian hasn’t put a foot wrong in Cech’s absence. Heck, he kept Arsenal in the derby against Spurs.

But with Andy Carroll starting and Ospina a little dodgy in the face of conflict, fans would prefer to see the reassuring presence of their first choice goalkeeper in what is a make-or-break game for their slim title hopes.

Three Arsenal players in a hire car – the full video

Earlier this week, we featured a short clip of three Arsenal players in a hire car.

We weren’t too impressed: Petr Cech as Beyonce? 3 Arsenal stars appear in bizarre Europcar advert (Video).

On Thursday, Europcar released the full clip of Theo Walcott, Danny Welbeck and Petr Cech in a hire car.

It doesn’t get much better to be honest, but Gooners will no doubt enjoy some of it.

Also below are the outtakes and a behind the scenes clip.

Europcar UK have a partnership with Arsenal and as a result, we have the video below, which has just been released.

The premise for said clip, is, according to Europcar: “Arsenal’s Petr Cech, Danny Welbeck and Theo Walcott take dedication to the next level when they accidentally drive to a game a mere six hours early. Join the Arsenal stars for a strange day on the motorway as they tackle tyrannosaurs, goat emojis and unrequested drum solos.”

With Danny Welbeck driving the car, we get to watch the rather wooden Theo Walcott ask Petr Cech a question from OK Magazine.

It is pretty much as bad an advert as it sounds…

Arsenal keeper Petr Cech confirms he’s fit for Saturday’s game against Watford [Instagram]


Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech is set to return to the first team tomorrow following a spell on the sidelines with a calf injury.

The 33-year-old keeper took to Instagram to inform his followers that he is back in full training and fit to face Watford at the Emirates on Saturday afternoon.

David Ospina has deputised for Petr Cech over the last 5 games, with Arsenal knocked out of the Champions League and the FA Cup during Cech’s absence.

The former Chelsea stopper captioned a photo of himself (below) in Arsenal training ‘Good training session, ready for action‘.

Currently 3rd behind Spurs and Leicester, Arsenal are still mathematically in the title race and have the easiest remaining fixtures of any of their rivals.

Arsene Wenger had a number of positive injury updates pre Arsenal-Watford [Tweets]

Screen Shot 2016-04-01 at 11.24.29

It is April, so Gooners should not be surprised that their injury problems that have occurred this season, are easing.

But, leaving the sarcasm aside, it does seem clear that Arsene Wenger will have close to a completely fully fit squad for the remainder of the season.

The big news ahead of Arsenal v Watford on Saturday is that Petr Cech is back from the injury he picked up in the final seconds of the home defeat to Swansea.

David Ospina has played very well in Cech’s absence but it seems likely that the former Chelsea goalkeeper will come back into the Arsenal first team tomorrow, with the Colombian having travelled back from playing in World Cup qualifiers.

Wenger also had positive updates on the likes of Jack Wilshere and Tomas Rosicky with the England midfielder likely to stake his claims for a place at Euro 2016 in the coming weeks.

Finally, Santi Cazorla is a “few weeks away” and the Spaniard has been sorely missed this season.

See a number of Tweets below from Arsene Wenger’s press conference on Friday ahead of Arsenal v Watford.

Arsenal’s Petr Cech wins the Czech 2015 Footballer of the Year Award, reacts on social media

Arsenal may not win any trophies this season, but Petr Cech added to his personal collection last night in Prague.

Despite the fact that we are almost a quarter of the way through 2016 already, last night in the Czech Republic they held their award ceremony for 2015.

The Gooners goalie scooped the top award of the night as he was crowned the Czech Republic 2015 Footballer of the Year.

The 33-year-old Czech international won Monday’s vote. Players, coaches, football federation officials and journalists all got to vote in the poll, while Cech has now won the award for a record eighth time.

Sparta Prague striker David Lafata, finished second while Hertha Berlin midfielder Vladimir Darida came third.

Cech has since turned to social media to thank his fans for their messages of support.

The keeper is currently on the sidelines with a calf muscle injury, leaving David Ospina as Arsenal’s keeper in recent weeks.

Arsene Wenger confirms that Petr Cech will be out for the next three or four weeks (Video)

Arsenal v Swansea City, Barclays Premier League, Football, The Emirates Stadium, London, Britain - 02 Mar 2016

Arsene Wenger has confirmed that Petr Cech is set for a spell on the sidelines that will last three or four weeks.

The Arsenal boss has faith in understudy David Ospina but it is still a big blow to the title-chasing Gunners to lose their first-choice stopper for a pivotal part of the season.

By the time Cech returns Arsenal could have exited the Champions League and FA Cup. They might also be out of realistic contention for the Premier League title by then. Hear Wenger speak about the hamstring injury below.

Petr Cech injury compounds Arsenal misery; Ospina will play vs Spurs [Tweets]

petr cech vs swansea, march 2016

Three successive defeats for the first time since 2010. The chance to make up title ground blown. A sequence of gutless performances that has fans baying for blood. Could things get much worse for Arsenal?

Of course. It’s already begun with Arsene Wenger confirming that Petr Cech picked up a hamstring injury in the home defeat to Swansea. David Ospina will start against Spurs on Saturday.

While the Colombian stopper will be confident in his own ability, Gooners are not. He made a notable error in a defeat to Olympiakos earlier in the season and fans have not forgotten it.

Cech was one of the few players who could hold his head high after a tumultuous start to 2016. Now Arsenal will have to do without his experience and leadership as they play their biggest match of the season.

Laurent Koscielny is also expected to miss the match.

White Hart Lane beckons and Arsenak fans are not looking forward to this North London Derby.

Petr Cech explains how he decided to move from Chelsea to Arsenal in Canal + interview

Screen Shot 2016-02-27 at 23.38.12

Ahead of Arsenal’s key Premier League match at Manchester United on Sunday, Petr Cech has given a lengthy interview to French TV station Canal +.

Mickaël Landreau, who played for France 11 times and for PSG and Nantes, interviewed the Arsenal number one and broached a number of topics.

Cech famously swapped Chelsea for Arsenal last summer, with the Czech Republic goalkeeper looking to play regular first team football having been displaced as Blues number one by Thibaut Courtois.

The Arsenal goalie, explained how he decided to move from Chelsea to Arsenal:

Cech also explained the importance of Arsene Wenger to him swapping one London giant Premier League club for another:

And, Cech discusses Arsenal’s hopes for the Premier League title, they are currently five points behind leaders Leicester, with a game in hand, at Manchester United tomorrow:

Leo Messi and Petr Cech hugged it out after Arsenal 0 – Barcelona 2 (Video)


Leo Messi finally ended his goal drought against Petr Cech on Tuesday night; the Argentine had never scored past the Czech keeper.

Messi had faced Cech in six previous games (when Cech was playing for Chelsea), but had failed to score past him in over 10 hours of football.

That led to a theory that Cech had some mental block over Messi, which the Barcelona man laughed off with two clinical goals at the Emirates on Tuesday night.

Showing that there’s no beef between the pair, they hugged it out afterwards.

Well done, well done!

Their brilliant spoof video is currently going viral on social media in the build up to the Arsenal v Barcelona Champions League game tonight.

While there are many reasons to believe the Catalans will progress, Arsenal fans can cling onto one amazing stat before kick off tonight.

Petr Cech has faced Leo Messi on six previous occasions, and the Gooners goalie has yet to concede to the Argentine.

With that in mind, enjoy the spoof video below.

Petr Cech lauded after Arsenal beat Bournemouth 2-0 [Tweets]

Embedded image permalink

Arsenal are back on the winning trail.

The Gunners ended a four game winless run on Sunday in the Premier League with a 2-0 win away at Bournemouth.

Both goals came in the space of two first half minutes.

Mesut Ozil lashed the visitors ahead following a knock down from Olivier Giroud in the Cherries box, while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain drilled a low shot into the far corner to double the lead.

Apart from the goals, Arsenal’s clean sheet was also hugely important.

Petr Cech was superb in goal for Arsene Wenger’s side, particularly after he made a terrific double save towards the end of the match.

Is Cech the signing of the season?

If Arsenal do end up winning the title, then no doubt their goalie will have been one of their star performers.

Petr Cech has now kept 12 clean sheets this season: more than any other Premier League goalkeeper.

Tweets on Cech are below.

Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech admits Southampton draw is ‘two points lost’ (Video)

Petr cech interview, feb 2016

It’s been a testing couple of weeks for Arsenal. Gooners were pretty optimistic at the turn of the year as their side sat at the top of the table after playing fantastic football through the first half of the campaign.

Now they’re five points behind leaders Leicester after failing to score in their last three Premier League games.

The latest blank was drawn in a goalless home stalemate with Southampton. While Petr Cech was happy about keeping a clean sheet, he admitted that it was two points lost. See his interview below.

Petr Cech has no complaints about Mertesacker sending off post Arsenal 0 – Chelsea 1 (Video)

Petr Cech cut a dejected figure in his post-match interview today; naturally enough, considering this was the 2nd time he’d lost against his former team since moving to Arsenal in the summer.

Ever the magnanimous and rational goalkeeper, Cech had no complaints about Per Mertesacker’s sending off, which was undoubtedly the turning point of the match.

Unlike his manager Arsene Wenger, who accused Diego Costa of engineering the sending off, Cech diplomatically made no complaints about the decision.

A statistical breakdown of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League

Screen Shot 2016-01-21 at 20.01.38

When Simon Mignolet signed on the dotted line a new contract at Liverpool earlier this week, it dawned on us just how many brilliant goalkeepers there are in the Premier League right now.

And, for Liverpool fans worried about their Belgian goalkeeper, it is noticeable how little Mignolet features on the tables below.

Last Sunday in the Premier League we saw just how many outstanding custodians English football’s top flight has to offer right now.

“Super Sunday” featured just one goal as David De Gea, Petr Cech and Jack Butland all excelled.

Meanwhile, the likes of Joe Hart, Hugo Lloris, Kasper Schmeichel and Adrian have all had strong seasons.

With the help of the EA SPORTS Player Performance Index, we have had a look below at a variety of goalkeeping statistics.

Screen Shot 2016-01-21 at 19.55.45

Stoke and England’s Jack Butland has made more saves (80) that any other Premier League keeper, making five more stops than Arsenal’s Petr Cech.

Screen Shot 2016-01-21 at 19.56.42

Jack Butland has also made more saves per goal conceded than any other Premier League shot stopper, making an average of 3.63 saves per goal conceded so far this season, once again just pipping Petr Cech to the top spot. London based keepers Adrian and Hugo Lloris occupy the third and fourth spots as the only other keepers to average at least three saves per goal conceded, with Manchester based Joe Hart and David de Gea in fifth and sixth spots respectively.

Screen Shot 2016-01-21 at 19.58.32

When it comes to looking at the league’s busiest keepers, Sunderland’s former goalkeeper Costel Pantillimon, now at Watford, is proving that he is earning his wages, having to make more saves on average than any other goalkeeper. Pantillimon is averaging a save every 21.5 minutes, with West Ham’s Adrian and Jack Butland making up the top three busiest shot stoppers so far this season. We don’t expect Pantillimon to play much now at The Hornets with Heurelho Gomes in such fine form.

Screen Shot 2016-01-21 at 20.00.35

Whilst Butland has made more saves than any other keeper in the league, it is in fact Joe Hart that has a better record for keeping clean sheets than any other Premier League keeper. The Man City keeper is averaging a clean sheet every other game this season in the Premier League, with rivals Manchester United’s shot stopper David de Gea has to settle for second best, keeping a clean sheet in 44.4% of his matches so far this season.

Robbie from Arsenal Fan TV thanks Chelsea from the bottom of his heart (Video)

If Sunday’s game between Arsenal and Chelsea goes to form, you suspect this will not be the last bit of trolling that we see from Gooners to the Blues.

On Thursday, Arsenal Fan TV received an amusing video, featuring presenter Robbie thanking Chelsea “from the bottom of my heart”.

As you might already suspect, Robbie hails Chelsea and their owner Roman Abramovich, for the sale of Petr Cech.

Just imagine if Cech picks up another man of the match award on Sunday!

Adidas screw up sending Petr Cech’s new gloves to Chelsea, not Arsenal [Telegraph]

Sometimes it’s hard to keep track of all the player movements in the world of football, particularly during the transfer window.

However Adidas should be more clued up than this!

A terrific story has been reported by the Telegraph, as the global sporting goods manufacturer screwed up this week trying to send Petr Cech some new kit.

Cech, of course, left Chelsea in the summer to join Arsenal, and the keeper has been one of the best players for the Gunners this season.

Indeed, this season he’s become the goalie with the most amount of shutouts in the history of the Premier League.

However someone at Adidas still thinks Cech is Blue. D’oh!

As reported in the broadsheet:

Chelsea passed up the chance to sabotage Petr Cech’s bid to keep out his former club after being mistakenly sent the Arsenal goalkeeper’s gloves for Sunday’s London derby by sportswear manufacturer Adidas.

Chelsea officials were this week amused to find that Cech’s Adidas gloves were sent to their Cobham training ground, rather than going to Arsenal’s London Colney base.

The Telegraph note that Chelsea’s employees sent on the merchandise to Arsenal so no harm was done.

Arsenal take on Chelsea at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.

Media preview

Stoke held Arsenal to a goalless draw at the Britannia Stadium on Sunday.

The result was enough for the Gunners to return to the top of the league, just ahead of Leicester on goal difference.

Petr Cech had another excellent game in goal for the Gunners as he chalked up another clean sheet.

The former Chelsea goalkeeper commanded his penalty area well, and he made a few smart stops in the second half.

After the game, Spanish right-back Hector Bellerin discussed how the Arsenal defence “feel very confident” with Petr Cech in goal.

Watch the interview below.

Gooner in Petr Cech hat says Arsenal will win the Premier League (Video)

Screen Shot 2016-01-18 at 09.15.25

We are not sure what is more ridiculous.

Louis van Gaal claiming Manchester United can win the Premier League or this Arsenal fan in a Petr Cech, who says the same thing for his side.

Whilst Arsenal do have a super chance of winning the Premier League, this fan looks simply nuts for wearing a Petr Cech hat.

Nevertheless, some of his points are pretty valid. Arsenal have picked up draws at Liverpool and Stoke where in previous seasons they may well have taken a serious beating.

Next up for Arsenal is the small matter of a London derby against Chelsea next Sunday.
