Barclays Premier League Preview & Predictions – 2015/2016

It’s nearly upon us. The magnificent match days. The waiting around for team sheets.

I’m of course talking about the start of the new Barclays Premier League season. Last season saw…

Player Comparison: Aaron Cresswell and Kieran Gibbs

Fullback. Quite an awkward position for a player to become, the sort of position that seems there just to fill numbers. It isn’t the most glamorous of positions, Jamie Carragher once described a fullback as either a failed centreback, or a failed winger on Monday Night Football, in the presence of one of England’s best…

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 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…

Tactic Analysis – 4-2-3-1 and Arsene Wenger

Formations and tactics are vital in the game of football and some managers success are down to the formations they play and adapt to the club they’re at, more so than even the players he has at his disposal. Whether it’s Barcelona’s revolutionary 4-3-3 under Pep Guardiola or Juventus’ 3-5-2 that they are currently running and are…

We’re halfway through the season and smack middle of the winter. In these cold winter nights, reading that a player is joining your club can make these cold nights seems better knowing your getting a star striker or a master midfielder. I am of course talking about the January transfer window. The past month has…

Player Comparison: Adnan Januzaj and Serge Gnabry

The Premier League has always been had major rivalries and one of the biggest being Arsenal and Manchester United. Arguably the two most successful clubs in the Premier League…

Can an English Team Win the Champions League This Season?

The last English team to win the Champions League was London club Chelsea back in the 2011/12 season although it was an unconvincing run, somehow beating favourites Barcelona 3-2 on aggregate in the semi finals to reach the final against Bayern Munich which ended 4-3 on penalties after a 1-1 draw in 90 mins and extra…

Why This Year Is the Most Open BPL Title Race

Last season, from early days the title race would only be contested by the two Manchester clubs and by lets say the 20th match in, United were going to win the title from their cross town rivals even if at the time, the table showed otherwise. The only other team that were real title contenders…
