• Marouane Fellaini Is Winning Hearts And Minds At Manchester United

    ARCHIVED CONTENT: March 21st, 2017 Just a few months ago, Marouane Fellaini was booed by Manchester United fans. With United 1-0 up away to Everton, Jose Mourinho sent the midfielder on to tighten up the game. He didn’t, giving away the spenalty and consigning his team to two points dropped. During the next game, against Tottenham, the Old Trafford crowd spotted Fellaini warming up on the sidelines. An audible portion of them then vented their frustration. It only got louder when the Belgian actually came onto the pitch. ...

  • Arsenal Remain Desperate For Clarity

    ARCHIVED CONTENT: MARCH 22nd, 2017 In what has become a tedious sense of déjà vu, the uncertainty that surrounds Arsenal Football Club continues to eat away at its fragile core. Even with the national newspapers hinting towards another renewal for Arsène Wenger, nothing has been confirmed as we head into April, and the fans are yet again being kept in the dark. Much of the frustration is being angled toward those at board level, whose collective indecisiveness have allowed the club to fall from a position of great strength and stability, to one of weakness in just under three years. Not only are there alarm bells ringing in north London, but deafening airstrike sirens as well. ...

  • Not Just Morata; Real Madrid Will Regret Letting Mariano Leave Too

    “We needed someone like Morata to come in for Benzema,” was the response of one Real Madrid fan, when asked by Spanish TV how Tottenham had been able to leave the Estadio Santiago Bernabéu with a point last Tuesday night. “I don’t know why [club president] Florentino Pérez sold Morata,” added another. “If I’m being honest, I miss Morata,” said another wistful Madridista. ...

  • Raheem Sterling’s Form And What Could Have Been For Liverpool

    Raheem Sterling is one of the Premier League’s most in-form players, and is on the way to establishing himself as one of the best forwards in the English top flight. The 22-year-old is a key part of arguably the most formidable side in the league in 2017/18, with Pep Guardiola poised to deliver the first title to the Etihad Stadium in four years, vindicating the winger’s efforts to leave Liverpool in 2015. And this rise under Guardiola, once Jurgen Klopp’s managerial adversary in Germany, serves up a frustrating reality for the Reds. ...

  • Quiet Man Mooy Strikes Right Notes At Huddersfield

    Aaron Mooy didn’t make the biggest first impression with his Huddersfield Town teammates when he joined the club on loan from Manchester City. “Aaron Mooy is a really funny guy - even if that’s hard to believe,” Elias Kachunga said in August. “He sits right next to me in the locker room. It’s a funny story, on his first day he sat that far away in the locker room you hardly saw him. ...

  • Leicester City Aren’t Currently An Attractive Proposition For First-Class Managers

    Carlo Ancelotti popped up in a couple of different capacities on Twitter this week. The recently deposed Bayern Munich manager posted a picture of himself enjoying Chelsea’s 3-3 draw with Roma at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday, suggesting that the life of a handsomely compensated former manager isn’t so bad really. That’s the benefit of being a nice guy and having worked for the biggest clubs in Europe: just because they binned you off, doesn’t mean a nice seat at pretty much any game you fancy isn’t waiting for you. Touring the continent, catching up with old pals and watching some football doesn’t seem like the worst way of spending some time. ...

  • Is Tammy Abraham The Answer To Chelsea’s Striker Shortage?

    The last week has shown clearly that Antonio Conte only rates one of his Chelsea strikers, and that's a position that simply can't be spun-out until May. Hoiking off an ineffectual and immobile Michy Batshuayi at Selhurst Park, and rushing back the hamstrung Alvaro Morata for the Champions League clash with Roma, shows very clearly where Conte feels able to lay his trust. ...
