Golden Gate Park.

there’s so much more to Stockholm

Frequently hailed as the most child friendly city in Europe, .

Stockholm is the complete package when it comes to a family getaway

It is small enough to get around on foot, has stacks of green areas and crystal clear water, and is jam-packed with all the culture, food and design cred  you’d expect from any famously trend-setting capital.Kids are simply accepted as part of city’s daily life, so they’re welcome pretty much everywhere (for free!) In fact, your little ones will have the freedom to make noise and generally be ‘kid-like’ without guilt.Stockholm is, without a doubt, one of the most beautiful cities in Europe.There is an abundance of children’s attractions and museums with plenty of activities/exhibitions especially made for young developing minds and others that run kid-friendly workshops.However, going on trips with kids in tow can be challenging; you can’t just plow through the sights and run yourself ragged.
Typically, the best you can do is 2 or 3 big things a day with a lunch break in between and a dinner break at the end to finally get back to home base to wind down.But have no fear.

Like Gothenburg- read my Gothenburg guide- Stockholm makes things fairly easy for parents

For example, buses are free if you””re bringing a stroller, while older kids (+7) can travel at no cost on the metro.
Moreover, shopping centers have nursing rooms and the majority restaurants offer child friendly seats and baby changing areas.In addition to being child friendly, .

Stockholm is also a fabulous city with over 750 years of ancient history

Every neighborhood is different, the attractions are world-class, it’s very easy to get around and almost everyone speaks perfect English. Are you planning a trip to Stockholm but don’t know which activities to schedule for your family itinerary.
Look no further.

Below you will find a comprehensive travel guide including what to see in Stockholm

how to get around town, a few budget considerations and other essential information that will streamline your trip.But first, here’s some useful information you might want to know about… Quick Navigation Where is Stockholm and Why Is it So Special?How Many Days to Spend in Stockholm?Where to Stay in StockholmGamla StanTIPFind Top Hotel Dealsin Gamla StanSodermalmFind Top Hotel Dealsin SodermalmNorrmalmFind Top Hotel Dealsin NorrmalmOstermalmFind Top Hotel Dealsin OstermalmWhere Did We Stay?HornstullFind Top Hotel Dealsin Hornstull3 Days in Stockholm ItineraryDay #1: Getting to the City CenterStrolling Around Gamla Stan (The Old Town)Kungliga Slottet (Royal Palace)Become a Knight at the Royal Armoury Museum (Livrustkammaren)Day #2: Time to Get Some Fun at Djurgården (Museum Island)Skansen Open-Air MuseumJunibaken – The Fairytale HouseGröna Lund Tivoli Amusement ParkDay #3: More Art & History to Indulge… While having fun!The Vasa Museum (Vasamuseet)MegaMind Exhibit at the National Museum of Science and Technology (Tekniska Museet)T-Bana Tour: Go UndergroundSome More Useful Information – Stockholm GuideGetting AroundArriving from Arlanda AirportMoving Around TownTips for Travelling in Stockholm with KidsWhen to Go?Stockholm PassBest Day Trips from Stockholm Where is Stockholm and Why Is it So Special?Sweden’s capital city, Stockholm is one of the world’s most spectacular cities and makes for a perfect weekend getaway in Europe.
It lies on the south-central east coast of Sweden where the freshwater Lake Mälaren flows out into the Baltic Sea.The city is spread across fourteen islands, which are connected by 57 bridges making it a joy to walk or bike around in summer when the weather is good.
Stockholm’s beautiful architecture is even more photogenic as it rises from these islands surrounded by a striking water setting.One of the best ways to explore Stockholm is with the numerous boat tours there are.And if that wasn’t enough, parks and green spaces constitute one-third of the city’s geographical area (!) and Stockholm’s 400 parks are the best place to enjoy glorious Swedish summer like the locals. At this time of the year Swedes like to spend their entire day outdoors – sunbathing, reading, playing games, working out, running, and enjoying picnics and beers in leafy parks.How Many Days to Spend in Stockholm?It sounds like there is a crazy amount of things to do in Stockholm Sweden, and this is especially true when travelling with young children.
You could spend an entire month visiting the city and still not see all of what it has to offer.Unfortunately, most of us lack the time (and budget) to run an in-depth exploration mission through the wonky medieval lanes of this Nordic paradise.
That being said, I’ve chosen the best attractions and rounded up the must-do””s with kids based on our trip to Stockholm, which was 4 nights/ 3 days long.You can also follow this plan if you have two days or just one day in Stockholm.
This will be a life-saver especially if you don””t have a general sense of the things you want to do.Where to Stay in StockholmStockholm is a stunning city that seamlessly mixes old, new, nature and water.It is the capital and largest city in Sweden and is the largest urban center of all Nordic countries, with 14 islands connected by more than 50 bridges.The city is best-known for its surrounding waters, massive green spaces, modern style and charming medieval  city center.
Yet, there’s so much more to Stockholm, from lively nightlife and shopping to world-class food and culture…even architecture!So where should you stay.
Where can you get some good sleep but be close to your Stockholm points of interest.
And if you have a baby, are these areas worth considering (while at it, these tips will show you how to put your little one to sleep quickly) TIP While Stockholm is a great city to explore with a bike, Gamla Stan is the place where you””re better off on foot as it can get crowded, some alleys are narrow and the cobble stones and inclines just make riding it hard.
There are some hotels here but not too many.
In this section, we’ll break down the best places in Stockholm to stay based on your interests, needs and budget: Gamla Stan, Sodermalm, Norrmalm, Ostermalm and Hornstull.Gamla StanGamla Stan is the neighborhood in the heart of the city.

It is Stockholm’s Old Town and  one of the best-preserved medieval areas in Europe

It is definitely touristy, and you’ll find a myriad of historic and cultural attractions as well as restaurants, shops and bars which will often be more expensive than in other parts of town.

Find Top Hotel Dealsin Gamla StanThis is Stockholm””s Old Town

with narrow cobble stone streets, restaurants and great views if your hotel window faces the canals.
CHECK HOTEL RATES CHECK AIRBNB RATES SodermalmSouth of Gamla Stan is Sodermalm.
A hip and trendy district, Sodermalm is the best neighborhood to stay in Stockholm for nightlife thanks to its great selection of bars, restaurants, cafes and clubs.
It’s also where you’ll find excellent independent shopping and plenty of ultra-cool Scandi-style.
Find Top Hotel Dealsin SodermalmThere””s great nightlife in Sodermalm, as well as restaurants, shopping and bars.
CHECK HOTEL RATES CHECK AIRBNB RATES NorrmalmIf you head back up to the north across Gamas Stan is Norrmalm, Stockholm’s business and commercial center.
You’ll find everything from great shopping to world-class culture, and is our top pick for where to stay in Stockholm for one night or if you’re on a budget.
Find Top Hotel Dealsin NorrmalmThis is the business area of town and a great location if you””re here for just a night or on business.
CHECK HOTEL RATES CHECK AIRBNB RATES OstermalmTo the East is Ostermalm.
One of the most elegant and exclusive areas of the city, Ostermalm is our number one pick for where to stay in Stockholm with kids because there’s so much to see and do, and it is here where we stayed. From massive parks to outstanding museums, plenty or restaurant and great shopping, you and your family won’t be bored in Ostermalm.
Most of the Stockholm boat tours also depart from here, so reaching the dock will be simple.
Find Top Hotel Dealsin OstermalmThis is in my opinion the best place where to stay in Stockholm as most of the city””s attractions are within walking distance.
We stayed here.
We  stayed at the Downtown Camper by Scandic in Ostermalm, and have to say it was a fantastic choice.
We travel with a 3 year old and the room had plenty of space including separate sleeping and living quarters.
The breakfast was nothing short of spectacular and the hotel has many features I haven””t seen anywhere else.
Check rates.
HornstullFinally, to the west of Sodermalm is Hornstull.
This is a very laid back are where to stay in Stockholm because it has everything from beaches and bars to shops and restaurants.
However most of the tourist attractions aren””t very close, so you might want to consider Hornstull as your base camp if you””re going to be in Stockholm for a long time.
Find Top Hotel Dealsin HornstullLots of green and quiet areas, this is a very nice residential part of town.
There aren””t many hotels here, but you””ll find great apartments.
CHECK AIRBNB RATES What to Eat in StockholmYou can’t go to Sweden and not try the quintessential Swedish dish: Swedish Meatballs.
Whether or not this dish was intended to become the icon of all things Swedish, it is probably the first dish that comes to mind for many of us. They are often made with a mixture of beef and pork, but can be made up of different meats.
The sauce is a deep, flavorful gravy.
And the dish is always served with potatoes (usually mashed), a bowl of lingonberries and pickled cucumbers.Swedish Fish Soup (Svenska fisksoppa), smoked Salmon (Varmrökt lax), flatbread and rosehip soup are some of the most popular dishes, but so are burgers.
Most restaurants will have several options for you to choose from, but we opted to have it in the Swedish equivalent of McDonald””s: Maxburgers!Sure, it might not be the healthiest option but your kids will have fun and it keeps the budget under control for at least one meal 3 Days in Stockholm ItineraryThree days in Stockholm with kids is not a lot (I know) but is certainly enough to get a good grasp of the city””s culture and modern lifestyle while having pure family fun.
This was exactly the time I spent in Stockholm, so hopefully my own experience can serve as reference for your trip too.If you’re going at a faster pace and are planning to stay only 3 days in Sweden, this suggested Stockholm itinerary would be perfect for you.
Check it out!Day #1: Getting to the City CenterStrolling Around Gamla Stan (The Old Town)All Stockholm day trips and family itineraries should include some time spent wandering Gamla Stan, the old town in the heart of Stockholm.
This beautiful area must be one of the best (if not the best) places for Stockholm sightseeing.Dating back to the 13th century, it consists of charming medieval alleys, cobblestone streets, and impeccably preserved architecture.
The main points of interest in Gamla Stan include the Stortoget square, the Royal Palace, and the Nobel Museum.This very lively square should not be missed.The whole island (one of 30,000 in the region of Stockholm) is relatively small and easily walkable in a morning or an afternoon.The cobbled streets are probably the only part of Stockholm that isn””t as stroller-friendly (these are our favorite lightweight strollers) as we””d like, but a good toddler carrier will save the day (check our top carriers including the baby carrier we use ).And whilst it is true this isn””t the kind of outing children would fall in love with, most kids will enjoy running free along the passageways and lanes, pausing to admire some of the fun window displays, and definitely indulging in a pastry or two.Kungliga Slottet (Royal Palace)This Royal Palace is one of the largest and most dynamic in Europe.
With over 600 rooms divided between eleven floors, it is the official residency to His Majesty the King of Sweden and is also the setting for most of the monarchy””s official receptions, open to the public year round.Kungliga Slottet contains many interesting things to see for kids and parents alike.
In addition to the Royal Apartments there are three museums steeped in regal history: the Treasury with the crowns, the Tre Kronor Museum that portrays the palaces medieval history and Gustav III””s Museum of Antiquities.
During summer the Royal Chapel is also open, as well as the Riddarholmen Church.There””s always something happening at the palace for children – younger visitors particularly enjoy activity trails.
They can be crowned on Sweden””s National Day or go on an animal hunt through the grand rooms of the palace whenever it is open.
The best part is that these can be carried independently and are suitable for kids of all ages.
There are also family tours, school activities and themed evenings to discover.The visit is 160 SEK but you’ll get in free of charge if you have your Visit Stockholm Card (more information below)PRO TIP: if possible attend the daily changing of the guard’s ceremony – kids love it.
It happens every day at 12:15 pm from Monday to Saturday (one hour later on Sundays) and is led by the Swedish Military.The Nobel MuseumThis museum is one of the must-visit attractions in Stockholm, but I do have to say it was not as exciting as I expected it to be.
The main area has themed exhibitions that change during the year taking up most of the museum, and there was one about Martin Luther King when we were visiting.
It was all right, but not what we expected to find.Perhaps the best part was the small theater with brief films about the Nobel Prize winners and their achievements and a small exhibit of what some of them used to make it happen.There””s also a small kid area where little ones can play for a short while (it””s not very big).Become a Knight at the Royal Armoury Museum (Livrustkammaren)Established in 1628 by King Gustav II Adolph, the Royal Armoury is the oldest museum in Sweden and definitely one of the best things to do in Stockholm with kids.
It gives children the opportunity to dress up with fascinating costumes in the Play & Learn area and get an interactive lesson of Swedish Royal History.Part of the Royal Palace, the Armoury houses an impressive collection of knight’s suits of armor, swords, period clothes once belonging to the royal children and a beautiful room of glittering carriages.
Temporary exhibitions designed for youngsters are also held regularly.
For long-term visitors there’s the Chivalry Club – a club open to kids aged between four and 12-years-old with regular monthly events.If you’re looking for free things to do in Stockholm, this attraction should be on the very top of your must-do’s list.
Your kiddos will have the chance of try on dresses and knight costumes, play, read and draw, at no cost!Day #2: Time to Have Fun at Djurgården (Museum Island)Walk Around AimlesslyOne of the best things you can do when visiting Stockholm is simply to walk around.
Take in the city””s unique architecture and parks, eat some Fika and have fun taking pictures of your family.Just have fun!And take in the fantastic city views.Skansen Open-Air MuseumFounded in 1891, Skansen is the world’s first open-air museum and one of the most popular places to visit in Stockholm for families.
It is like a miniature Sweden throughout the last 500 hundred years with 150 farms and houses to explore, each representing different periods in Sweden’s history.Your kids will love getting up close to the animals!Skansen features a zoo, aquarium, vintage amusement park and plenty of trails to walk and play.
It’s a huge site and it takes quite a while to get around it all.
The main zoo houses wild Nordic animals including bears, wolves and lynx.
There is also a separate children’s petting zoo (Lill-Skansen) with domestic animals such as goats and chicks, as well as pony, horse and carriage rides.While exploring the area you’ll see people working in period dress which can explain the various exhibits.
Some of the buildings are shops or display trades and you can watch crafts in action.
The museum’s exhibits of traditional Swedish houses may not be too thrilling for young kids but the animals and the rides rarely fail to entertain.Stockholm view from Skansen museumNational Holidays are celebrated great vigor at Skansen with fun events and festive activities, so make sure to look out for these things if you are to visit.
This way you’d get the most of your experience.INTERESTING FACT: Did you know all the ancient buildings were disassembled and transported there from across the country.
What a great way to preserve their historical heritage.PRO TIP: ask for the English booklet to help you get around as it is pretty easy to feel lost at Skansen – it’s enormous!Junibaken – The Fairytale HouseIf you’re wondering what to do in Stockholm with kids I””d highly recommend Junibaken – an indoor adventure theme park (based on the works of Pippi Longstocking’s creator Astrid Lindgren) that aims to inspire a love of reading in children.
Whether you’re familiar with Pippi or not (yet), your kids will adore this place.You can ride Pippi’s horse, on-board the magical Story Train for a whirlwind introduction to Swedish and Scandinavian children’s literature (with English narration if requested), have a delicious meal at the café, and discover the inter-connected playrooms, which are transformed into fantasy towns and houses.It doesn””t matter if your little munchkins do not know any of these stories before getting there – all the exhibits are very well done and can grab kid””s attention for hours.
Astrid Lindgren definitely achieved her goal of making a museum where children could touch and play instead of just looking.Gröna Lund Tivoli Amusement ParkThis is Sweden’s oldest amusement park and a highlight popular with locals and tourist alike.
It blends old world charm and tame favorites (carousels, bumper cars) with modern white-knuckle rides including Europe’s tallest free-fall tower and rollercoasters.Conveniently located on the water’s edge in Djurgården it has great views back across Stockholm.
As you’d expect, there are height restrictions on many of the +30 rides so it””ll be more suitable for older kids and teenagers.Day #3: More Art & History to Indulge… While having fun!The Vasa Museum (Vasamuseet)Millions of people visit Vasamuseet each year – for good reason.
This famous museum is home to the Vasa, the world’s only preserved 17th century ship.
In 1628, it sunk on its maiden voyage in Stockholm’s harbor where it remained for 333 years until being raised in 1961.The massive 69m long and 44.8m tall warship is remarkably preserved (98% is original) and is amazing how much kids are able to learn about it.
Get such an insight into people””s life back then it is just unreal and the reconstructions of the crew members inside are mind-blowing.There are numerous special exhibits and activities aimed at children.
One of the most popular is the showing of a 17 minute film about a little piglet called Lindblom who heads out on an adventure aboard the Vasa.
I””d recommend your kids watch it as it help kids appreciate what they””re about to see in the museum.There’s also a family trail (suitable for children 3 to 8 years) to follow after you’ve seen the film that guides you through the museum, asking questions based on little Lindblom’s adventures.
A second family trail takes visitors through the Vasa´s history and is suitable for kids from 6 years.Final verdict: The Vasa Museum should be definitely included into your travel itinerary if you’re planning to stay 2 or 3 days in Stockholm.PRO TIP: buy your ticket in advance, particularly in summer months when queues can be long.
Bear in mind that Vasamuseet is Stockholm‘s most popular attraction.MegaMind Exhibit at the National Museum of Science and Technology (Tekniska Museet)Designed to encourage and inspire children to experiment their way to new, smart ideas, it’s an original and innovative museum for kids.
It is full of fun activities that not only appeal to children and can keep the entire family occupied for endless hours.The MegaMind exhibit incorporates physical challenges, technology, and written explanations to teach visitors about the human brain.
The museum design alone is amazing and is based on the human brain.
Visitors enter the museum through a gigantic ear and onwards into a large room where the brain’s hemispheres are represented.
There are some 50 interactive displays that challenge children to think differently and to dare their perceptions.
There’s also a family room in for changing babies’ diapers and for feeding – as well as to giving everyone a rest.
Afterwards, you can head straight to the café for lunch or an afternoon coffee stop.Hop on the Boat ToursWhen in Stockholm joining one or several boat tours is almost a must.
You get to see parts of the city that you””d miss otherwise, and also from a different perspective.
If traveling with little ones there””s the added bonus of their excitement, plus if kids under six get to have all the fun at no cost for you!Teo loved the boat tours!Boat tours are themed as well, as some head our to the outer islands while others focus, for example, on the city””s bridges.
In any case they are exciting, educational and tons of fun.Most of the boat tours start at the docks on Ostermalm, another reason why you should really consider staying in this part of town when you visit Stockholm (check my “where to stay” section in this article).​T-Bana Tour: Go UndergroundIt might be odd to you to visit the Metro as opposed to use it to go from point A to point B, but this is one of those situations in Stockholm where paying for the ticket will get you more than just the usual.
Stockholm metro stations are truly a piece of contemporary art, which gives the city and edgy touch that you wouldn’t find in any other place.With an extension of more than 100km and 90 stations (!) the Tunnelbana or T-Bana is believed to be the world’s longest art exhibition.
You can find here all kind of paintings, sculptures and mosaics that turn an ordinary commute into a memorable and unique art journey.
The public transportation agency often organizes free guided art tours during summertime.
Alternatively, you can buy a ticket and do some DIY station-hopping if you’re running out of time and need to make this tour a quickie.
I’d recommend going in the evening after a great day visiting all the museums and attractions.Some More Useful Information – Stockholm GuideGetting AroundGetting from Arlanda Airport to StockholmThe quickest way to get into Stockholm is by high-speed train.

Barcelona Tertarik Datangkan Marcus Rashford

Barcelona Tertarik Datangkan Marcus Rashford– Raksasa Liga Spanyol, Barcelona kabarnya cukup tertarik untuk memboyong bintang muda Manchester United, Marcus Rashford di musim panas nanti.

Dalam dua bulan terakhir, Rashford tengah tampil menggila. Ia berhasil membuat enam gol dari total delapan penampilannya di ajang Premier League musim ini.

Penampilan impresif Rashford pun mengundang minat klub lain untuk memboyongnya. Sebelumnya, Real Madrid juga diklaim tertarik mengangkut pemain 21 tahun tersebut.

Dilansir Mundo Deportivo, para petinggi Barca diyakini ingin mendatangkan Rashford meski biaya yang dibutuhkan bisa sangat besar, yakni mencapai di atas 100 juta euro.

Meski demikian, Barca disebut tak terlalu berharap perekrutan Rashford bisa menjadi kenyataan dari United tak akan melepas begitu saja aset paling berharga mereka.

Selain itu, Rashford juga hingga kini masih belum memikirkan untuk hengkang dari United yang merupakan klub idolanya sejak masa kecil.

Belakangan muncul kabar yang menyebut bahwa United akan segera memberikan kontrak berdurasi enam tahun terhadap Rashford.

MU merasa Rashford saat ini sudah menjelma menjadi ikon klub yang baru, sehingga mereka ingin menggunakan jasa lulusan akademi mereka itu selama mungkin.

Manajemen MU juga akan memberikan kenaikan gaji yang cukup signifikan kepada pemuda 21 tahun itu. Meski tidak disebutkan berapa nominalnya, namun laporan itu mengklaim bahwa Rashford akan menjadi salah satu pemain dengan gaji tertinggi di Old Trafford.

Di sisi lain, Rashford tampaknya merespon positif tawaran United ini. Sebagai lulusan akademi MU, Rashford merasa bangga bisa bermain di tim utama Setan Merah. Untuk itu ia ingin lebih lama bermain untuk tim yang ia bela sejak ia masih kecil itu.

Kalahkan Manchester City, Maurizio Sarri Girang Setengah Mati

Kalahkan Manchester City, Maurizio Sarri Girang Setengah Mati– Pelatih anyar Chelsea, Maurizio Sarri memuji permainan bagus timnya sehingga mampu mengalahkan Manchester City tadi malam.

Sebuah pencapaian bagus didapatkan Chelsea dini hari tadi. Menjamu sang juara bertahan Premier League, Manchester City, The Blues mampu menang dengan skor 2-0.

Kemenangan ini merupakan sebuah kemenangan krusial. Pasalnya Chelsea memberikan Manchester City kekalahan pertama mereka di ajang Premier League setelah memainkan 15 pertandingan tanpa tersentuh kekalahan.

Sarri sendiri merasa sangat senang timnya mampu mengalahkan sang juara bertahan di Stamford Bridge. “Kami sangat senang dengan kemenangan ini,” buka Sarri di halaman resmi Chelsea.

Sarri menilai bahwa Manchester City bukan tim sembarangan, sehingga ia menilai timnya tampil dengan sangat bagus untuk menumbangkan sang juara bertahan.

“Kami tahu bahwa sangat sulit untuk mengalahkan City saat ini. Bagi saya tidak mudah untuk menang melawan Pep, jadi saya sangat senang dengan hasil ini.”

“Untuk saat ini kami perlu motivasi seperti ini untuk bermain dan kami harus bermain dengan determinasi dan agresifitas di pertandingan lain, jika tidak kemenangan pada laga ini akan sia-sia.”

Sarri juga menegaskan bahwa timnya memang layak meraih kemenangan ini karena menurutnya timnya berhasil meredam permainan agresif Manchester City.

“Kami tahu bahwa penguasaan bola merupakan salah satu kekuatan kami, namun hari ini kami bermasalah dengan hal itu. Kami tahu bahwa kami akan punya banyak ruang untuk melancarkan serangan balik, namun kami tidak berencana untuk tampil defensif di area kami.”

“Kami bermain dengan sangat baik di beberapa menit akhir babak pertama dan 20 menit pertama babak kedua. Pada akhirnya kami memang layak mendapatkan kemenangan ini.” tandasnya.

Berkat kekalahan ini, Manchester City harus turun ke peringkat 2 klasemen sementara Premier League, di mana posisi mereka digeser oleh Liverpool.

Terus Menuai Hasil Positif, Unai Emery Enggan Jemawa

Terus Menuai Hasil Positif, Unai Emery Enggan Jemawa- Pelatih anyar Arsenal musim ini, Unai Emery mengaku akan terus fokus untuk meraih keberhasilan di Inggris. Ia juga menenagaskan bahwa dirinya tak akan jemawa dengan hasil bagus Arsenal belakangan ini.
Terakhir, Arsenal baru saja mengalahkan Leicester City dengan skor meyakinkan 3-1, Selasa (23/10) dini hari WIB. Mesut Ozil tampil gemilang dan membuktikan diri sebagai salah satu pemain penting di skuat The Gunners saat ini.
Laju positif ini mengindikasikan bahwa Arsenal siap bersaing merebut gelar juara Premier League musim ini. Saat ini posisi pertama hingga kelima di klasemen memang masih bersaing ketat. Meski demikian, pelatih Arsenal, Unai Emery tak mau berandai-andai.
Menurut Emery, saat ini Arsenal harus menjaga ketenangan meski terus meraih kemenangan. Dia tak mau kemenangan beruntun itu justru membutakan skuat Arsenal dari persaingan yang sesungguhnya, terlebih bicara soal gelar juara.
“Kami harus tetap tenang. Bagi kami sangatlah penting untuk mengalahkan Leicester karena mereka berda dekat di belakang kami [di klasemen],” ujar Emery di fourfourtwo.
“Kami juga melihat tim-tim yang ada di depan kami seperti Liverpool, Manchester City dan Chelsea.”
“Kami mengontrol pertandingan dan menemukan kesempatan untuk mencetak gol. 30 menit awal berjalan sulit,” sambungnya.
Lebih lanjut, Emery juga berharap barisan pemain Arsenal yang cedera bisa segera pulih sebelum bertanding melawan Sporting di Liga Europa, Jumat dini hari WIB pekan ini. Menurutnya, saat ini Arsenal sedang menghadapi jadwal padat dan sangatlah penting bagi pemain mendapat istirahat cukup.
“Minggu adalah hari yang buruk untuk cedera. Dua pemain di posisi yang sama seperti Sead dan Nacho memiliki masalah kecil. Pagi ini mereka tak bisa bermain.”
“Saya berharap mereka bisa bermain melawan Sporting. Untuk Sokratis, dia bisa tinggal di sini untuk laga hari Kamis nanti [Jumat dini hari], dengan banyaknya pertandingan dalam beberapa hari, sangat penting bagi mereka untuk beristirahat,” pungkasnya.

Danny Welbeck Kemungkinan Besar Tinggalkan Arsenal

Danny Welbeck Kemungkinan Besar Tinggalkan Arsenal- Salah satu striker anyar Arsenal, Danny Welbeck kabarnya telah siap meninggalkan The Gunner pada bursa transfer Januari nanti. Diketahui, Welbeck jarang dimainan mengingat Arsenal memiliki striker lain seperti Alexandre Lacazette atau Aubameyang.
Penyerang 27 tahun itu bisa dikatakan menjalani karir yang sulit di Arsenal. Karirnya kerap diganggu cedera, sehingga ia tidak bisa berkontribusi maksimal bagi Meriam London.
Welbeck yang kondisi fisiknya cukup baik musim ini mendapatkan kenyataan pahit. Ia harus rela menjadi striker pilihan ketiga Arsenal di bawah asuhan Unai Emery.
Dilansir The Mirror, situasi ini membuat Welbeck semakin frustasi. Ia dikabarkan tengah serius mempertimbangkan pindah dari Arsenal di bulan Januari nanti.
Rencana Welbeck untuk pergi dari Arsenal ini kabarnya mendapatkan penolakan dari Unai Emery. Sang pelatih kabarnya ingin mempertahankan sang penyerang lebih lama di Arsenal.
Meski tidak memplotnya sebagai penyerang utama The Gunners, namun Welbeck dinilai akan berguna untuk Arsenal. Untuk itu ia akan membujuk Welbeck untuk tinggal di London Utara.
Sebagai upaya untuk mempertahankan Welbeck, Emery kabarnya sudah meminta manajemen Arsenal untuk menyiapkan kontrak baru untuk sang penyerang dalam waktu dekat ini.
Laporan yang sama mengklaim pembicaraan kontrak Welbeck sudah dimulai. Namun situasinya diklaim tidak berjalan lancar.
Welbeck kabarnya tidak senang dengan draft kontrak barunya. Ia dikabarkan meminta kejelasan statusnya di tim utama Arsenal sebelum ia menandatangani kontraknya di Arsenal.
Jika Emery tidak berani memberikan jaminan jam bermain untuknya, maka jebolan akademi Manchester United itu akan memutuskan hengkang dari Arsenal.
Welbeck sendiri dikabarkan banyak diintai oleh klub-klub top Eropa, di mana Everton disebut menjadi tim yang paling meminati penyerang Timnas Inggris tersebut.

Merasa Bersalah, Luke Shaw Minta Maaf ke Fans MU

Merasa Bersalah, Luke Shaw Minta Maaf ke Fans MU- Pemain belakang Manchester United, Luke Shaw meminta maaf kepada seluruh fans MU atas penampilan buruk timnya. Menurutnya ini semua adalah kesalahan dirinya dan seluruh skuad MU.
MU menelan kekalahan ketiga di Premier League 2018/19 ini saat menyerah 1-3 di kandang West Ham. Permainan MU sangat buruk dan setiap pemain tampak kebingungan di atas lapangan.
Hasil buruk ini tentu menambah tekanan di pundak sang pelatih, Jose Mourinho. Saat ini kabarnya posisi Mourinho sebagai pelatih kepala MU mulai terancam, nama Zinedine Zidane pun terus disuarakan sebagai penggantinya. Shaw sendiri tak bisa banyak berdalih dan mengakui MU memang tampil sangat buruk.
Menurut Shaw, tanpa banyak berdalih, permainan MU sangatlah buruk. Dia mengakui pada saat itu MU sama sekali tak terlihat seperti tim yang mampu mengalahkan lawan seperti West Ham.
“Jika anda menginginkan kebenaran, saya pikir sejujurnya penampilan kami sangatlah buruk. Kami tidak terlihat seperti tim yang bisa mengalahkan West Ham. Saya secara pribadi dan sebagai tim kami tampil sangat buruk,” ujar Shaw di fourfourtwo.
“Kami tampil tak cukup bagus. Sulit menerima kekalahan itu dan kami meminta maaf pada para fans untuk apa yang mereka saksikan.”
“Kami tak tampil cukup bagus untuk tim MU dan dengan banyaknya talenta yang kami miliki,” lanjutnya.
Lebih lanjut, Shaw mengakui penampilan buruk seperti itu seharusnya tak diperbuat tim besar sekelas MU. Dia menilai pemain-pemain MU langsung tampak kesulitan begitu wasit memulai pertandingan.
“Sejak menit peratma anda bahkan bisa melihat kami tidak memenangkan duel atau second balls. Kekalahan ini sulit diterima. Kami hanya tampil tak cukup bagus. Ini seharusnya tak terjadi.”
“Kami seharusnya mendominasi di pertandingan seperti ini, menciptakan banyak peluang, menunjukkan pada banyak orang kenapa kami layak bermain untuk MU,” sambung Shaw.
“Dan hal itu tidak terjadi. Kami tampil sangat buruk. Sangat, sangat buruk.”
