Why Most EPL Sides Should Try And Sign Samaras

Now let me start this by stating that the bigger sides in England, say the top seven or eight teams shouldn’t be included in this piece. I’m talking about the mid-table sides and the lower teams in the English Premier League. Teams like Crystal Palace, Sunderland and Hull should definitely take a punt on Greek […]

James Rodriguez: A Galactico In The Making But Wont Leave Monaco This Summer

Everyone’s heard of Colombia’s James Rodriguez now! He’s been the player of the World Cup so far and he’s a joy to watch. But before fans start dreaming of signing the twenty-two year old genius, they need to know it will cost a huge amount to even get close to signing him. Most clubs missed […]

Sloppy Brazil Need To Wake Up Or Risk Losing The Dream

  So hosts Brazil have managed to squeeze past neighbours Chile and reach the quarter-final stage of this years World Cup. But ‘A Seleção’ need to buck up their ideas or risk falling before the final at the Maracanã! Not for the first time in this tournament Brazil were shoddy and looked average at times. The […]

Southampton’s Summer Sales Aren’t So Bad

It’s summer sales season at St Mary’s at the moment. Southampton have seemingly agreed to sell important trio Rickie Lambert, Luke Shaw and captain Adam Lallana. In total it’s believed that the ‘Saints’ have recouped in total £63m, depending on various clauses. That is great business for a club like Southampton who weren’t in the […]

The Team Of The Group Stages

    So it seems to be on trend for various footballing websites to give out their teams of the group stages. So why should I be any different, so here is my team. As you can see the side is in a 4-2-3-1 formation. I’ve no room for Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Wayne Rooney, […]

Spurs Should Splash Out On Little Pea

Javier Hernandez (Chicharito) has arrived at a crossroads at Manchester United. The Mexican striker has to decided whether or not he should stay at Old Trafford and risk never becoming a first team regular or should he depart and start a new challenge elsewhere? Plenty throughout Europe would be keen to add the forward to […]

Argentina Should Drop Higuain Or Aguero In Favour Of Lavezzi

It may have surprised most of us but Argentina have looked quite toothless up-front at this years World Cup. Apart from Lionel Messi, obviously, who has saved his nation in their first two fixtures. Both Sergio Aguero and Gonzalo Higuain have struggled to make much of an impact so far in Brazil. So with qualification […]

Silly Suarez!

Last week I hailed Luis Suarez‘s passion and in particular his performance against England. He was fantastic. But if we saw the best of the Uruguayan against England, then against Italy we saw the very worst of the forward. He has once again tried to take a chunk out of a fellow professional by biting […]

Why Alexis Sanchez Needs To Get Out Of Barcelona

I said back in 2011, that Alexis Sanchez shouldn’t move away from Serie A for Barcelona. I feared that the move to the Catalan giants would stall the creative man’s career. Not because he wasn’t skilful enough or because he wasn’t a world-class talent, nope it was all because Lionel Messi was already at Barca […]

Inept Defending Puts England on a Backward Path

When Roy Hodgson named the England squad for the World Cup 2014, few eyebrows were raised since it was a largely young group of players with very few experienced internationals in it. Yet, it was also the source of optimism for the national team, which has failed to look beyond the Golden generation until now. […]
