Man United Would be Foolish If They Let Anthony Martial Leave

Anthony Martial showed in a recent friendly win over Real Madrid that he has the precious talent that could see him become a world class performer at Manchester United sooner rather than later. Reports today suggest that the young Frenchman could be on his way to Inter Milan. The Serie A giants want Martial in any […]

Aberdeen Are Still Scotland’s Second Force

Forget all Pedro Caixinha’s spin about Aberdeen’s cycle coming to an end, the Dons are still Scotland’s second best team at the moment. Can Rangers overhaul the deficit and overtake the North East side? Yes quite possibly but it certainly won’t be easy. Aberdeen have had a very successful summer, in my opinion. Unlike Rangers […]

Michy Batshuayi Ready For More Game Time At Chelsea

Without doubt £70m man Alvaro Morata will be Chelsea’s main striker next season. But after a year kicking his heels at Stamford Bridge, fellow hitman Michy Batshuayi will be hoping for more game time next term. I think the Belgian forward will get more opportunities and I also believe he’ll make the most of them. Last season […]

Can AC Milan Take Juve’s Serie A Title?

AC Milan are once again making waves in the world of football. The Rossoneri’s new Chinese owners have come in and made some statement signings this summer.  The most notable new recruit has been Leonardo Bonucci from Juventus in a €40m deal. That move showed they can still attract a world-class talent and it has […]

Time For Andrew Roberston To Prove Himself At Liverpool

I’ve said plenty of times in the last six months that Andrew Robertson deserved a chance at one of the Premier League’s top sides to show his true qualities. Today Liverpool confirmed that they have managed to snap up the left-back in a £10m deal from Hull City.  I’m delighted for the player, who has […]

West Ham United: Finding Value In This Crazy Transfer Window

It’s fair to say that this is fast becoming one of the craziest transfer windows ever in English football. Teams are spending £75m on strikers, £50m on a fullback and £3om on a goalkeeper. Obviously the higher TV revenues have found their way into the club’s bank accounts and most of them aren’t interested in […]

Can Alvaro Morata Fire Chelsea To More Glory?

You didn’t take Columbo to work out that Chelsea would be interested in signing Alvaro Morata this summer. Antonio Conte was left frustrated in his pursuit of Romelu Lukaku, Sergio Aguero and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. Manchester United would pip the Blues to the signing of Lukaku but before that deal was concluded United were very interested in […]

Picture Blog: Fiorentina

I have just arrived home after a terrific holiday to Florence. I enjoyed the sun, art, food and the scenery. But I also managed to take some time out and visit ACF Fiorentina’s Stadio Artemio Franchi. Not the easiest to walk to from the city centre but I’m really glad I made the effort!  

Will Jose Mourinho Have Man United Playing With Three At The Back?

Manchester United have been linked with signing a full-back all summer but I’m wondering if Jose Mourinho has other ideas for his defence next season. When you look at his current squad and the £31m signing of Victor Lindelöf from Benfica you cannot help but notice that the Red Devils have quite a few centre-backs within […]

Rafa Benitez Will Want A Top Ten Premier League Finish With Toon

It has been a bit of a slow summer for Newcastle United so far. Only two new faces have arrived in the form of Eibar defender Florian Lejeune and Chelsea’s Christian Atsu has joined full-time after enjoying a loan spell with the Toon last term. Lejeune stated that Newcastle boss Rafa Benitez was a big […]
