                                    Sir Michael Gambon

According to his relatives, actor Sir Michael Gambon passed away at the age of 82.

He was best known for his portrayal of Professor Albus Dumbledore in six of the Harry Potter films. Born in Dublin, the star had a career spanning six decades in television, film, theater, and radio. He was a four-time BAFTA winner. His widow, Lady Gambon, and son Fergus stated that he peacefully passed away in the hospital due to pneumonia.

Sir Michael’s Gambon journey began in Dublin when his family relocated to London when he was a child. His first stage performance was in 1962 in Dublin’s production of Othello in Ireland. His career took off when he became an original member of the National Theatre Acting Company in London. He won three Olivier Awards for his performances in National Theatre productions.

His fellow actor Dame Helen Mirren paid tribute to her “mischievous but very, very funny” friend. In an interview with Laura Kuenssberg earlier this weekend, Dame Helen recalled how they shared “uncontrollable laughter” on and off the stage during their performances in Antony and Cleopatra and films like 1989’s The Cook, The Thief, His Wife & Her Lover.

She went on to discuss the impact of their advancing age on their work: “sir Michael gambon was entirely an empirical actor,” she said ‘A brilliant mime’ is how I always thought of him, and I would say: ‘He can do anything.'”

Jason Isaacs, who portrayed Lucius Malfoy in the Potter films, known as “X” on Twitter, called Sir Michael gambon an “institution.” He remembered Sir Michael Gambon knowing his name and sharing his fearless, dirty humor with him. He also shared a screenshot of a message where Sir Michael gambon offered to join him on the lines at the end of a performance with the Manchester Halle Orchestra.

It’s a memory that’s always been one of the main attractions of my (Potter) days,” he added.

In 2003, following the death of Richard Harris, Sir Michael took over the role of Hogwarts headmaster Dumbledore in the hit Harry Potter film series based on J.K. Rowling’s novels. The biggest thrill of being in the Potter films was that he knew my name and shared his fearless, dirty humor with me.

Sir Michael Gambon’s longtime friend Dame Eileen Atkins revealed on BBC Radio 4’s The World at One that he was ‘a great actor, but he always made it seem like he didn’t take it too seriously’ and his presence on stage was extraordinary. She said, ‘He just had to walk on stage and immediately command the whole audience.’ ‘There was something very endearing about him, this big man who could seem very intimidating – but there was something incredibly sweet about Michael.’

‘Death of a Salesman,’ his other big-screen adaptations included ‘Dad’s Army,’ ‘Gosford Park,’ and ‘The King’s Speech,’ where he portrayed King George V, the father of King George VI, were included. He play role as Mr. Woodhouse in the 2010 adaptation of Jane Austen’s ‘Emma’ and as President Lyndon B. Johnson in the 2002 ‘Path to War.’ He also received a Tony nomination for his role in ‘The Dresser’ in 1997. Shine brightly.

Sir Michael Gambon’s Life

He was awarded a knighthood for services to the entertainment industry in 1998, even though he was of Irish origin, he became a British citizen in his childhood. In the field of acting, sir Michael Gambon, known for ‘The Great Gambon,’ was last seen on stage in Samuel Beckett’s ‘All That Fall’ in a London production in 2012.

A great actor Whether in Beckett, Dennis Potter, or Harry Potter, he gave everything in every performance.'”

Michael Gambon was one of Britain’s most versatile actors. Although he found success in both TV and cinema, theater was his greatest love. He portrayed many great Shakespearean characters, appeared as Inspector Maigret on TV, and auditioned once for the role of James Bond. When he played the role of Albus Dumbledore in the Harry Potter films, he gained international popularity.

Michael John Gambon was the son of an engineer and the grandson of a governor of Darjeeling. When he was just five years old, his father moved to London to work on the post-war reconstruction of the capital after the Blitz, and Gambon was sent to St. Aloysius College in Highgate, North London, before the family moved to Kent again.

Sir Michael Gambon’s father made him a British citizen, which meant his future knighthood would be real rather than honorary. He said, ‘I don’t have any happy memories,’ and left his job as a toolmaker’s apprentice at the Vickers factory at 15. There was always something about acting that attracted him, and he became an enthusiastic cinephile. But he didn’t start actively pursuing a stage career until he was 20.

‘The Thick of It’ He started writing letters to various theater companies, most of which included rather derogatory CVs describing his fictional talents. Eventually, he was offered a junior job at the Gate Theatre in Dublin, where he appeared in a major role in a play by George Bernard Shaw before the family moved back to Kent.

It was Oliver who suggested that the young Gambon needed to broaden his experience, so in 1967, he joined the Birmingham Repertory Company, where he began to choose the meatiest parts in Shakespeare’s plays, Othello, Macbeth, and Coriolanus, as well as main roles in the presentation of plays from the European repertoire.

In the BBC TV series ‘The Borderers,’ based on 16th-century Scotland, during his excellent presentation, Cubby Broccoli saw him and, after deciding to leave the next Bond film, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, he auditioned for the new Bond film, which he did. refused.

He had always thought, 007, more George Smiley than he could be James Bond – he wasn’t excited about taking it. He told Broccoli, ‘My hair isn’t good, and I’m a little fat,’ and this part went to George Lazenby.

His devotion to the stage paid off in 1974 when he was chosen as Tom in Alan Ayckbourn’s The Norman Conquests during its revival. Rave reviews for the West End transfer established him as a great comic actor, among other things.

He won a BAFTA for his role and continued his association with the author by appearing in Harold Pinter’s Betrayal, based on the life of the Italian scientist of the 17th century. The portrayal of Galileo Galilei received great acclaim during the 1978 presentation of South Bank.

Two years later, The Life of Galileo, a production based on 17th-century Italian scientist’s life, featured an excellent performance by him. A critic called his performance “sensitive, menacing, and very powerful” and noted that his fellow actors returned to the dressing room to applaud.

He also appeared as Jerry in Harold Pinter’s ‘Betrayal,’ based on the Italian scientist Galileo Galilei, who was depicted as a professor of anatomy. He appeared in various adaptations of George Simenon’s novels for ITV, playing Inspector Maigret, which ran for two series.

Two penguins, but he never took the film as seriously as he did on stage, to the point that his presence as Professor Dumbledore in the Harry Potter films was part of his legacy, succeeding Richard Harris in the role after his death.

Sir Michael Gambon once said, ‘I don’t remember any of the movies I’ve done.’ ‘You go from one to the other, and they all blend into one big group. I remember Harry Potter because of the costume I wore, silk and black clogs. Very comfortable.’

Sir Michael Gambon  enthusiasm for the stage remained undiminished. In 2001, during the revival of Harold Pinter’s ‘The Caretaker,’ his presence as Davies marked his importance as a great comic actor. In 2005, he finally realized his ambition to play Falstaff in Henry IV, Parts 1 and 2 at the National Theatre.”

In 2010, they returned to where they had started, the Gate Theatre in Dublin, to perform in Beckett’s “Krapp’s Last Tape,” a production that ultimately transferred to London’s West End. They also appeared in TV productions, including a role as Mr. Woodhouse in Jane Austen’s “Emma” for the BBC, earning them an Emmy.

Their voice was in high demand. They were the distinctive narrator of a notable Guinness advertisement featuring two penguins, lent their unique voice to several video games, and provided the voice for Paddington Bear’s Uncle Pastuzo when the character reappeared in the 2017 series.

In 2015, they announced retirement from the stage, citing difficulty in remembering lines. They experimented with Earpiece to receive cues but found it impossible to focus on their acting. However, their work in television and film continued, including roles like Private Godfrey in the 2016 film adaptation of “Dad’s Army,” Agent Five in the slapstick espionage comedy .

Apart from acting, they collected and restored vintage firearms and watches, and they were an enthusiastic classic car enthusiast, featured on Top Gear in 2002, where their “Reasonably Priced Car” drive took them to the top of the leaderboard. Their influence led to a corner being named after them on the show.

They were awarded a knighthood in 1998, although, unlike some fellow actors, they never used this title. Fame meant nothing to them, and they never sought the limelight, avoiding interviews whenever possible.

When pressed by an interviewer, there was a possibility of hearing some fascinating stories from their life, including revealing that they once dated the 6-foot-tall daughter of a Botswana chief and once alerted an unsuspecting interviewer that their career ended when they fell off the stage during a performance with the Royal Ballet.

Disease X: The looming Pandemic Threat

Disease X: The looming Pandemic Threat


COVID-19 might prove to be less dangerous than Disease X, which could claim the lives of over 500 million people.

According to a new book titled “The Next Killer: How to Stop the Next Pandemic Before It Starts,” authored by vaccine experts Kate Bingham and former journalist and political advisor Tim Hemmes, the world is currently ill-prepared for the next major pandemic. This disease, referred to as Disease X, is projected to be even more perilous than COVID-19. Since very little is known about this ailment, it has been given the name Disease X. Experts believe that the Earth hosts millions or billions of viruses, any of which could potentially trigger a pandemic.

This book highlights the need for global preparedness and vigilance. It underscores the point that similar to how the Spanish flu claimed countless lives a century ago, Disease X has the potential to be responsible for the deaths of over 500 million people.

disease x

The authors have revealed that scientists have identified 25 virus families, each containing hundreds or thousands of distinct viruses. Any of these could potentially lead to a devastating pandemic.

Furthermore, they warn that viruses can jump from animals to humans and mutate rapidly, as observed in cases like Ebola, HIV/AIDS, and COVID-19.

So, how dangerous is Disease X?

Some time ago, the World Health Organization (WHO) issued a warning about the possibility of the next pandemic, referring to it as Disease X. This was before the global spread of COVID-19, almost a year prior. It means that Disease X is part of the WHO’s list of dangerous diseases, for which there is no current treatment. Some health experts believe Disease X will be zoonotic, starting in wildlife or domestic animals before infecting humans, similar to Ebola, SARS, and COVID-19.

disease x

What preparations are needed for the next pandemic?

It’s essential to note that while most people recovered from COVID-19, the mortality rate for other viruses like Ebola is as high as 67%, bird flu at 60%, and MERS at 34%. To prevent future pandemics, research into vaccines and treatments is crucial. Strengthening healthcare systems and surveillance is equally important. While we cannot predict the exact date of the next pandemic, we can certainly begin preparing for it today.

Streaming on ESPN+: La Liga, Bundesliga, and More (U.S.)

Portugal’s great forward, Cristiano Ronaldo, made an early impact just four minutes into the game with a clinical left-footed shot, after being set up by former Liverpool forward Sadio Mané. He then secured his brace in the 52nd minute with a precise finish from a sharp angle after a clean turn. Meanwhile, Brazilian forward Anderson Talisca scored two goals for Al Ahli in the first half, one from the penalty spot and the other with a splendid strike from beneath the crossbar.

Throughout the game, Al Ahli, the home team, managed to find the net only once, thanks to former Barcelona midfielder Frank Kessie’s first-half goal. Algerian winger Riyad Mahrez converted a penalty in the second half for Al Ahli. Just before that, Ferass Al-Breqan netted in the 87th minute, ensuring a nervy finish with the score at 4-3.

After losing their first two games of the season, Al Nassr has now recorded five consecutive wins in the league. This latest victory places them level on points with Al Ahli and secures them fifth place in the Saudi Pro League standings.

Both Al Nassr and Al Ahli are among the four clubs taken over by the Public Investment Fund (PIF) of Saudi Arabia in high-profile acquisitions before the summer, which saw several European star names transferring to the Saudi Pro League.

Cristiano Ronaldo jr dos Santos Aveiro GOIH, pronounced [kɾiʃˈtjɐnu ʁɔˈnaldu], is a Portuguese professional footballer who plays as a forward and captain for Saudi Pro League club Al Nassr and the Portugal national team. Cristiano Ronaldo jr, widely regarded as one of the greatest players of all time, has earned five Ballon d’Or awards, three UEFA Best Player in Europe Awards, and four European Golden Shoes, the most by any European player.

33 trophies have been won by him over his career, including a UEFA Nations League, a UEFA European Championship, five UEFA Champions League wins, and seven league championships.

Cristiano Ronaldo jr’s name is synonymous with records in the Champions League (183 appearances, 140 goals, and 42 assists), the European Championship (14 goals), international goals (123), and international appearances (201).

His professional career has lasted over 1,100 games, making him one of a very small number of players. With more over 800 recognized senior career goals for club and nation, he holds the record for most goals scored.

cristiano ronaldo jr

Starting his senior career with Sporting CP, cristiano Ronaldo jr won the Portuguese FA Cup in 2003 before signing with Manchester United. In his debut season, he claimed his first Premier League title.

He went on to win three consecutive Premier League titles, a UEFA Champions League, and a FIFA Club World Cup by the age of 23, earning his first Ballon d’Or. Ronaldo’s transfer to Real Madrid in 2009 for €94 million (£80 million) marked the world’s most expensive association football transfer at the time.

He became an important player, joining forces with Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale to form an attacking trio that contributed to four Champions League titles between 2014 and 2018, including La Decima.

During this period, he won consecutive Ballon d’Or awards in 2013, 2014, 2016, and 2017, and finished as the top scorer in competitions for six straight seasons between 2012 and 2018.

cristiano Ronaldo jr concluded his sole full season at Juventus as the club’s top scorer before returning to Manchester United in 2021.

Cristiano Ronaldo jr dos Santos Aveiro was born on February 5, 1985, in Funchal, the capital of Madeira, Portugal, and was raised in the Santo António neighborhood near Funchal. He is the fourth and youngest child of Maria Dolores dos Santos Aveiro. His mother was a cook, and his father, José Dinis Aveiro, was a municipal kit man. His paternal great-grandmother, Isabel da Piedade, hailed from the São Vicente island of Cape Verde.

Cristiano Ronaldo jr has one older brother, Hugo, and two older sisters, Elma and Liliana Cátia “Katia.” His name was given in honor of actor and U.S. President Ronald Reagan, whom his father was a big fan of. His mother disclosed that she considered having an abortion due to poverty, her husband’s alcoholism, and the family’s already numerous children, but their doctor denied the procedure, as it was illegal in Portugal at the time.

As a child, Ronaldo played for Andorinha from 1992 to 1995, where his father worked as a kit man, and later spent two years with Nacional. In 1997, at the age of 12, he went for a three-day trial with Sporting CP, which cost them £1,500 in registration fees. Ronaldo later moved from Madeira to Lisbon to join Sporting’s youth academy.

By the age of 14, Ronaldo believed he had the potential to play semi-professionally and agreed with his mother that he should cease his education and focus entirely on football. As a student, he was expelled after throwing a chair at his teacher who Ronaldo claimed had disrespected him.

He was given a diagnosis of racing heart a year later, a disease that might have made him have to stop playing football.

Style of Play

A versatile attacker, Ronaldo is capable of playing through the center of the pitch alongside any winger, and he primarily uses his right foot, but he’s strong with both feet. Throughout his career, Ronaldo has evolved in various roles. While at Sporting and during his first season at Manchester United, he was usually deployed on the right flank as a traditional winger, often attempting crosses into the penalty area.

Cristiano Ronaldo jr became famous for his dribbling and flair, often showcasing moves like step-overs and the renowned “chops,” which became his trademarks. He’s also known for employing the flip-flap skill move.

He poses a threat in aerial duels due to his size of 1.87 meters (6 feet 1 12 inches), strength, and jumping skills.

These attributes allow him to excel as a target man and pose a danger in the penalty area; consequently, many of his goals have been headers.

With increased stamina and work rate, Ronaldo’s goal-scoring ability improved significantly when he played on the left wing, where he had the freedom to move inside to finish attacks.

He also contributed creatively to his squad, frequently dropping deep, taking part in build-up plays, and generating opportunities for his teammates thanks to his passing prowess and vision.

In his final season at Manchester United, Ronaldo adopted an even more aggressive and central role, either as a striker or a supporting forward, or even occasionally as an attacking midfielder.

Due to his striking prowess, he evolved into a prolific goal scorer with an accurate and potent shot from inside the box as well as from a distance.

Cristiano Ronaldo jr also became a set-piece specialist, renowned for his powerful, bending free-kicks. When taking free-kicks, Ronaldo employs the knuckleball technique developed by Juninho Pernambucano. He also uses a trademark stance, often raising his shorts and showing his thighs, signaling “all eyes are on me,” creating a psychological impact on the opposition.

Throughout his career, Ronaldo has been described in the media as having an “arrogant image” on the pitch. Ronaldo himself has stated that the way the media has portrayed him has made him a “target.” He’s often seen shouting, gesturing, and showing emotions on the field.

While motivating his team to win, Ronaldo has emphasized that his competitive nature should not be mistaken for arrogance. His managers, teammates, and various journalists have argued that his pursuit of excellence should not tarnish his image.


Cristiano Ronaldo jr has five children. He became a father for the first time when his son was born on June 17, 2010, in the United States. He has kept his child’s identity private and has not publicly disclosed the child’s mother according to a mutual agreement.

In January 2015, Ronaldo’s year-long relationship with Russian model Irina Shayk came to an end.

On June 8, 2017, Ronaldo became a father to twins born via surrogacy in the United States. He is currently in a relationship with Spanish model Georgina Rodríguez, who gave birth to their daughter on November 12, 2017. This couple was expecting twins in 2022, but tragically one of the twin boys passed away during childbirth, while the girl survived.

Ronaldo’s father, José, passed away from a liver disease related to alcohol in September 2005 when Ronaldo was just 20 years old.

In January 2023, after signing with Al Nassr in the Saudi Pro League, Ronaldo moved to Saudi Arabia with his family. The strict Muslim-majority kingdom’s rulers had previously made an exception for unmarried couples not to live together in Saudi Arabia, which caused some controversy.

Ronaldo belongs to the Wardén family lineage through his paternal side.

Health and Lifestyle

Cristiano Ronaldo jr has stated that he doesn’t consume alcohol, and he has faced defamation for an article in the Daily Mirror in which it was falsely reported that he drank heavily during his recovery from an injury in July 2008. He doesn’t have any tattoos on his body because he regularly donates blood and bone marrow.

Legal Issues

In July 2017, Ronaldo faced allegations of tax fraud, with claims that he evaded around €15 million in taxes between 2011 and 2014. In June 2018, Ronaldo was sentenced to a two-year suspended prison term and fined €18.8 million after reaching an agreement with Spanish authorities, which later reduced the fine to €16.8 million.

The sentence could be suspended as long as he doesn’t commit a similar offense during the probationary period.In 2005, Ronaldo and another individual were investigated by the British Crown Prosecution Service following allegations of rape made by two women.

Both women quickly withdrew their accusations, and Scotland Yard afterwards issued a statement claiming that there was not enough evidence to bring charges.

In April 2017, it was reported that the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department was investigating Ronaldo in connection with a sexual assault allegation from 2009. Ronaldo’s legal team provided documents confirming that he paid $375,000 to a woman as part of a confidentiality settlement.

Ronaldo and his lawyers have vehemently denied all allegations, describing some parts as “fabricated and/or completely false” in a statement, a claim that Der Spiegel explicitly rejected. In July 2019, Las Vegas prosecutors announced that they would not charge Ronaldo with sexual assault.

Match Report: Arsenal 4-0 PSV Eindhoven”

Arsenal 4-0 PSV Eindhoven

Amidst the jubilant atmosphere at the Emirates Stadium, we marked our return to the Champions League in spectacular fashion, defeating PSV Eindhoven. In a game that saw goals raining down on our opponents, thanks to Bukayo Saka, Leandro Trossard, and Gabriel Jesus, we found ourselves three goals ahead within half-time. Captain Martin Odegaard made his mark with a trademark finish, aiding us in achieving a scoreline that reflected our performance, and he was aptly suited for the occasion.

After a six-year wait to rejoin the thrilling competition, we wasted little time in reestablishing ourselves, rising swiftly and building a solid lead. In just eight minutes, Saka made his way through from the right and ousted Odegaard, who had been granted ample time and space for a shot, which Walter Benitez thwarted. The England international was ready to rebound and slip it past the Argentine goalkeeper, making it his first European goal at the Emirates.

Moments later, Jesus was inches away from converting a Ben White cross into a goal, and in the 18th minute, under damp conditions, Benitez made another attempt to deny Odegaard but the Argentine goalkeeper came out mostly unscathed. However, 60 seconds later, he was again pushing the ball out of his net. Jesus displayed some hesitation in seeking Saka’s assistance in finding the goal, which allowed the Argentine goalkeeper time and space, and after some good footwork, he presented a sight of goal, a shot that was destined for the top corner but Gabriel narrowly missed the header from a favorable angle.

Due to the need for VAR intervention, spectators were offered little in the way of displays of their potential to return to the game, with only a poor Johan Bakayoko effort and an Armel Bella-Kotchap header from a corner causing any concern, but Peter Bosz saw his side’s chances of scoring dwindle.

The score sheet was finally altered in the 38th minute, following a superb pass by Gabriel that sent Trossard down the left, and his chipped cross at the far post perfectly captured Jesus. The Brazilian player showcased an excellent touch first to control the ball and then, helpless Benitez at his mercy, calmly slotting the ball into the net – a clinical finish.

In terms of action, our dominance continued, with David Raya being called into action perhaps rarely if ever, and while we couldn’t add to our tally in the final 20 minutes, Mikel Arteta’s managerial debut in the Champions League was one to remember.

In Saka, Trossard, Jesus, and Odegaard, we became only the seventh team to have four different scorers in a single Champions League debut match. Saka notched his first European competition goal in his 11th such match at the Emirates. Since the start of last season, only Kevin De Bruyne (7) has scored more goals from outside the box in all competitions for Premier League clubs than Odegaard (4).

We return to Premier League action on Sunday when we travel to North London to face Tottenham Hotspur for the first derby day of the campaign, and then attention shifts to the Carabao Cup next Wednesday when we face Brentford away in the third round.


With a 4-0 victory over PSV Eindhoven, Arsenal marks a stunning return to the Champions League.

On Wednesday, in front of a home crowd, we celebrated a fantastic 4-0 win against PSV Eindhoven, marking our return to the Champions League with style, and now you can relish the highlights!

Bukayo Saka got us off to an early lead, but it was Leandro Trossard who made it 2-0 in just 20 minutes. Gabriel Jesus added our third goal before halftime, and then Martin Odegaard sealed the deal with a goal in the 70th minute.

After putting on a Man of the Match performance in the 4-0 victory over PSV Eindhoven, Martin Odegaard was thrilled to be a significant part of the club’s big night.

Following the first-half efforts from Bukayo Saka, Leandro Trossard, and Gabriel Jesus, they completed the scoring, giving us a resounding win – a night to remember for players, management, and supporters, as we announced our return to competition in style.

And the captain acknowledged that leading at the Emirates Stadium and playing a role in a good result is a dream come true. Martin said, “Looking back on our work from last night, I think it was a terrific start.”I think from the beginning, we showed how eager we were to come back into this competition and how inspired we were. You’ve seen it in the stadium, in the atmosphere of the fans, and on the pitch; we were ready from the start.

“I think we were genuinely excited. We were really eager to put on a big performance and coming back into this competition means a lot to our players, our fans, and the club, and I think you’ve seen that from the start.”

The atmosphere was incredible. I believe these are the kinds of days that young children who are playing outside with their pals dream about. It’s incredible because these are the kind of days you only get to dream of, and I really liked it.

While we sent our supporters home excited with a performance and result, the captain feels there’s still much more to come from our team as the season’s early weeks continue to unfold.

We have a lot of things that I think we can do better, he pointed out. I think we gave them too much space without the ball, especially in the first half. And then in the second half, we found a bit more connection, and it was better, but without the ball, we played some really good football and scored some fantastic goals.

“We’ll need to build on our successes and reflect on what we could have done better,”Now, all the games are coming thick and fast, and we have to be ready for Sunday, be fit .

With a 4-0 win and a hunger for more, Martin knows our Premier League rivals will take notice, and with the North London Derby on the horizon, the Norwegian midfielder hopes our desire to keep improving will benefit us when we return to Emirates Stadium on Sunday.

So, Arsenal supporters, prepare ready for more action-packed games in the future as we make a comeback in the Champions League and continue our Premier League campaign!

“As a Manager, Mikel Arteta Felt Emotional Ahead of His First Champions League Match, and He Acknowledged That the Theme of arsenal 4-0 Win Against PSV Eindhoven at the Emirates Stadium Was Special.”

In his role as a manager, Mikel Arteta has heard this tune several times before from players in our colors, but after guiding us back to Europe’s premier club competition, he believes tasting it again after a long absence was particularly sweet. And the result, courtesy of goals from Bukayo Saka, Leandro Trossard, Gabriel Jesus, and Martin Odegaard, which was tied to an exceptional team performance, meant it was a night that the boss will always remember.

Reflecting on the occasion after the match, he said: “I’m really happy. The music was emotional, and the atmosphere in the stadium was fantastic. To win the first game 4-0 is a good memory, and I’m really happy with the way we played.”

I have sensed it during the past 48 hours in the players’ behavior, their desired level of focus, and their game preparation. But then you have to do it against a really good team who hasn’t lost any games, and today we won because we were very good in both boxes.”

After their response, there were moments of change for our rescue, and we did that very well and we were really clinical. We were really well prepared to pick the right players, the right passes, the right spaces, and that’s the difference in the game.”

While the club had experienced a six-year absence from competing in the competition prior to tonight’s match, Mikel believes that winning this first game is essential for his players to know they are at this level.

He believes our performance in week-in, week-out Premier League action, along with the presence of experienced international professionals, means we are fully equipped to challenge the rest of the continent’s elite class this season.

When asked if it was a definite win, Mikel said: “What is more important for us is that we can perform at this level, and it’s no different from what we experience every week in the Premier League. This is the ideal preparation for us, and it demonstrates how many players are accustomed to competing in big major tournaments.

Emotionally, winning is the best, the best, the best. It’s the best thing you can do, and now I have 24 players who are eager to play on Sunday.”

So, with a resounding 4-0 victory and the desire to keep improving, Mikel Arteta and Arsenal are set for more exciting challenges ahead in the Champions League and the Premier League!

After our 4-0 success against PSV Eindhoven in the Champions League, Mikel Arteta faced questions from the global media who were eager to share their views on our outstanding performance against the Dutch side. Beyond the victory over the boss, discussions revolved around our return to domestic and continental football, and much more. Here’s what he had to say:

Obviously, after such a long time, we wanted to put on the right performance to try and win the game, and the atmosphere, the music of the Champions League, was great to see. Beforehand, everyone was a bit emotional. Today, we showed especially in both boxes that we were exceptional, and I think that was the difference in the game.

On whether he was emotional before the match: Yes, I was. I wanted to control it and not show it too much, but I was genuinely excited. It’s part of the journey; the journey started last year, and we earned the right to be in this competition, where we want to be a club and now it’s our responsibility to produce at this level.

On whether the team could have performed even better after a 4-0 win:

I agree, especially box-to-box there are things that we should have done much, much better, and every day, you have to work on it. To analyze it properly, you need to be analytical, but at the same time, give credit to the boys for how they played. Scoring four goals against a team that hadn’t lost a game in the Champions League is also down to them.

On managing players who made their Champions League debuts:

I could understand it. I think we tried to use that energy and that emotion in the right way. Speaking of joy, we have to compete at this level, but there has to be a part of it where we enjoy those moments, those nights. Facing different styles in the Premier League and the Champions League: Every opponent brings different challenges, and when you score quickly in a game, it might help. It hasn’t happened much this season, which is why we also have to face opposition in other areas.

On being able to substitute players in the second half before the North London Derby:

We could manage some minutes for some of them, especially because of where they were coming from, having played many minutes with their national teams. Also, giving minutes to players was entirely justified. When I saw Emile’s reception, I was genuinely moved. Wanting to finish the game earlier and how satisfying it was: Very good, and that’s what we want to do.

That’s why I mentioned that we were exceptional in the box today. We were ruthless; we took our chances, and the quality of finishing was top, but at the same time, we could have done more, and perhaps the manager sometimes pays more attention to other areas.

On Bukayo Saka’s first game in the Champions League:

To be honest, some boys are now playing at the international level, you know, and they have significant roles in their national teams, and you can also understand that they’re not just part of the team but have quite a bit of responsibility, and they’re big players there. It’s very helpful for the team.

On choosing David Raya ahead of Aaron Ramsdale: I had confidence that I wanted to play the expected opponent. It’s not just that; the reason we made changes with all the players was that.

Barcelona Player vs. Antwerp: Joao Felix shines as Champions League campaign kicks off with 5-0

Barcelona Player vs. Antwerp: Joao Felix shines as Champions League campaign kicks off with 5-0

Belgian champions 5-0.

Barcelona got off to a victorious start in their 2023-24 Champions League campaign, inspired by Joao Felix’s stellar performance to beat Antwerp 5-0. The Portuguese international opened the scoring and set up another within the first 45 minutes with a cleverly drawn finish, and then provided a fantastic cross for Robert Lewandowski’s second.



Barça’s third decision came more due to luck, as a cross from Raphinha was inadvertently deflected into their net by Antwerp defender Jelle Bataille. Later in the match, Gavi added a fourth with a powerful finish in the top corner, breaking Antwerp’s defense.

Following Raphinha’s cross, Felix scored a fantastic back-post header to make it 5-0 for Barcelona, capping off a superb performance.

Goalkeeper and defense:

Marc-Andre ter Stegen (6/10): Had little to do during the game, raised the flag for offside before a second-half free-kick, and left a simple double-save to late. A quiet night.

Joao Cancelo (7/10): Given permission to push forward and managed well in the midfield. Occasionally found himself in the midfield and was sharp in his distribution, passing well.

Jules Kounde (6/10): Handled everything coming his way with ease and often pushed the opposition forward. Even attempted a 25-yard shot that sailed over the crossbar.

Andreas Christensen (6/10): Was always in control in defense, and was given plenty of time on the ball for distribution. Calm and composed.

Alejandro Balde (6/10): Played several times out of position as a left-back. Had an opportunity in the first half but got tangled up with the crossbar. Perhaps the calmest nights in a Barça shirt.


• Ilkay Gundogan (7/10): Played beautifully with his passing and set up Felix splendidly for the opener. He distributes the ball with precision and is good at recovering the ball.Outstanding midfield performance.

• Frenkie de Jong (8/10): Played a beautiful pass in preparation for Lewandowski’s goal. Dominant in midfield, consistently advancing and making things happen. Substituted by Romelu Lukaku but his impact was deeply felt.

• Gavi (7/10): A late inclusion in midfield due to an injury scare, but it was his only mistake. Scored a fourth for Barcelona with a stunning finish in the top corner.


• Raphinha (8/10): Set up Felix’s goal with a superb pass. Daring in midfield, always advancing and creating opportunities. Replaced by Ferland Torres just over an hour into the game.

• Joao Felix (10/10): Scored the opener with a fine finish at the near post, then outmuscled Lewandowski for the second. Added a fantastic back-post header after Raphinha’s teasing cross. A stellar performance where every touch mattered.

• Robert Lewandowski (6/10): Contributed to Felix’s goal with preparation and scored a second with a simple back-post finish. A strange game, as he was the least effective attacker for Barça, but it didn’t matter.


• Oriol Romeu (6/10): Replaced de Jong and kept Barcelona ticking in midfield.

• Ferland Torres (6/10): Filled in for Raphinha and did nothing wrong, but was not as effective as the player he replaced.

• Lamine Yamal (7/10): Took Felix’s place and scored a great opportunity, although he went too far and collided with the side netting. Lively sub; Barcelona have a player.

What’s next for Barcelona in the Champions League?
