Player Focus – Memphis Depay

The Eredivisie has gifted Europe with some of the greatest talents we’ve ever seen like Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Luis Suarez and Arjen Robben, who’ve all excelled on the biggest stages in continental football since leaving the little land of Holland. But one criticism the Dutch league has come under in recent years as well as the obvious…

BPL Ins and Outs That Should Happen This Summer – 2015

I would just like to say I’m sorry for the inactivity on the blog for the past 10 months or so and I should be back to writing more regularly. 🙂 The 2014/15 Barclays Premier League season has finished and we’re currently in the awkward phase where our Saturdays and Sundays are empty and your life…

David Moyes: Should He Have Been Sacked?

He’s gone. The Chosen One. After 10 months in charge of the most successful club in England taking after Sir Alex Ferguson, David Moyes has been released from his duties as manager. Now a lot of Manchester United fans are thanking the heavens that the Scot has been sacked but I for one am outraged…

Player Focus – Christian Eriksen

Eriksen. For me, the bargain of the season. For as much as Tottenham have had a very up and down season, one constant that has remained is the talent that is Christian Eriksen. He has been without a doubt, the best summer buy that Andre Villas-Boas had brought in since Gareth Bale’s departure and although he…

Champions League Semi-Final – Preview

Today the draw for the Champions League and my word is it mouth-watering. With each team having their own incentive to win the most prized trophy in European football, expect some good matches and plenty of drama. With two of the last Champions League winners from the last 3 years, we could potentially see a…

Champions League Quarter Final – Preview

With the Champions League now in the 2nd round of knockout stages, this is where the Champions League really hots up. With each team agonising close to final in Lisbon, each minute, each shot, each block and each goal counts. Yesterday was the draw for Quarter final and I felt like I could hear the…

Player Comparison: Neymar and Gareth Bale

The Welsh Wizard or the Brazilian Brilliance? Both Neymar and Bale made switches to La liga last summer for staggering price tags, Neymar’s transfer however has recently been put under scrutiny and has slightly tainted the whole transfer and the controversy seemed to have got to Neymar, maybe the reason for his recent dip in…

Team Focus – Liverpool: Back To Dominance?

Liverpool once was the most feared teams in the world post the Premier League era, winning 18 league titles, 4 FA cups, 4 League cups and an amazing 13 FA charity shields (Now renamed FA Community shield) but have yet to win a league title in the modern era, but this year they look one…

Player Focus – Paul Pogba

Paul Pogba. The man who got away. When the Frenchman was sold to Juventus in the summer of 2012, it was met with mixed responses by fans as some saw it a good move for United, shifting what seemed like then dead weight but some saw it as something that would be later regretted by…

Player Comparison: Pablo Zabaleta and Bacary Sagna

Arguably the best Right-backs in the Premier League, the Frenchman and Argentine are often compared and have gotten into quite a few rifts on the pitch due to their ‘never back down’ mentality which contributes to their respective teams massively. Sagna and Zabaleta are both fan favourites and with good reason. Both Sagna and Zabaleta…
