Can John Collins Be A Great Number Two At Celtic?

John Collins has been made Ronny Deila’s second in command at Celtic. It’s a move that surprised me at first and I’m still unsure how it will go, but the more I think about it the more it actually starts to make sense. Collins was a Celtic hero during his six years at the club […]

World Cup Stars Liverpool Should Be Looking At

Now I know what they all say ‘Don’t buy players on the back of a World Cup’. But let’s face it, I can’t write a blog about that, can I? Plus Liverpool along with many other European sides are in need of reinforcements, especially as they’re in the Champions League next season. So I’m going […]

Should Arsenal Take A Risk On Balotelli?

So Arsenal have been heavily linked with renowned footballing bad-boy Mario Balotelli, but should Arsene Wenger take the gamble or would he be better off looking elsewhere? It’s a tough one.

Sensational Suarez!

We should have all had money on it really, Luis Suarez was always going to bite England’s backside and score against them.

I have always liked Fred. The Brazilian is a goalscorer and I love goalscorers. But the problem with players like Fred, is that if they aren’t on-form and scoring goals then they aren’t providing much else for the team. The expectations on Brazil as they host their first World Cup since that infamous tournament in […]

So we’ve now had the first round of group matches at this years World Cup… And what can I say, it’s been fantastic so far. I’ve said for weeks, if not months, that I couldn’t wait for this competition to get started in Brazil and it hasn’t let me down! It all kicked off with […]

Petulant Pepe Lets Down The Portuguese.. Why Are We Not Surprised?

It took Pepe just thirty-seven minutes to make an impact at this years World Cup and yes obviously it was for all the wrong reasons, as is the way with this particularly volatile centre-back. He tangled with Germany’s star-man Thomas Muller inside Portugal’s half. As the German tried to close down the Portuguese defender from […]

Joel Campbell Deserves Chance To Impress In England… But Maybe Not At Arsenal… Yet

  Joel Campbell has a bit of talent. After his explosive performance against Uruguay in Costa Rica’s opening World Cup tie, everyone could see that. Arsene Wenger spotted that talent back in 2011, when he signed the youngster up from Costa Rican side Deportivo Saprissa. But since then the forward was been sent out on […]
