Scott McTominay Is Fast Becoming Manchester United’s Leading Light!

Just under twelve months ago it was thought that Scott McTominay would have to leave Old Trafford on a loan deal to get more top team exposure. The youngster had been propelled into the first-team picture under Jose Mourinho and he gave the side much needed energy and commitment. But as Jose’s Manchester United team […]

Juve Legend Antonio Conte Could Be The Man That Ends Glory Run He Started

It always looked like it was going to be a huge summer in Italy when it was announced that both Inter Milan and Serie A champions Juventus were on the lookout for new head coaches. In a bit of a Shakespearean twist Inter swooped for the man that started the glorious revival at Juve, Antonio […]

The Granit Xhaka Jeering Makes Me Feel Uneasy But I Understand it

I have never been a big fan of Arsenal’s Granit Xhaka. I don’t think he offers enough discipline when protecting his team’s backline and his mistakes always seem to cost his club. That being said, I did think he looked to have improved last season especially when playing alongside Lucas Torreira. Alas he has once […]

Four Midfielders That Manchester United Should Be Scouting

Manchester United ended their four game winless Premier League streak with an away win at Norwich City this evening (BBC Match Report). That victory has seen United move back into the top half of the league table but what it isn’t done is paper over the cracks within Man United’s squad. They need more players […]

Rangers Hitman Alfredo Morelos Is More Than Just A Streetfighter

I’m never one for comparisons or debates on who is better. We’ve seen it a lot recently in Scotland with supporters and pundits discussing who is the more accomplished striker: Alfredo Morelos or Odsonne Edouard? Personally I like watching both strikers and I appreciate having the duo doing their stuff in The Scottish Premiership. This […]

Frank Lampard Is Already Working Wonders At Chelsea

Frank Lampard was always going to get time to prove himself at Chelsea. As a player he helped the club win major honours and he’s the club’s all-time leading goalscorer. Being a Blues legend was always going to be looked on favourably by the Stamford Bridge crowd. He also walked into the Chelsea hot-seat knowing […]

Erik Ten Hag Should Top Any Potential Arsenal Managerial Shortlist

After watching his side lose to Premier League newcomers Sheffield United, Arsenal boss Unai Emery must have known people would be discussing his future at The Emirates. The Spaniard’s job was up for debate in September when they threw away a two goal lead to draw with bottom of the table side Watford. Yet The […]

Liverpool’s Virgil Van Dijk Deserves The Ballon d’Or

I don’t like calling a 30-man list a shortlist but alas I don’t run the Ballon d’Or award. Yesterday we got France Football magazine’s 30-man ‘shortlist’ of the game’s top players in the last year (You can view the list on BBC Sport). The usual names of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are once again […]

Picture Blog: Elland Road – Leeds United

This weekend I found myself in Yorkshire. I love Leeds as a city but I had never made the jaunt to Elland Road (Home of Leeds United) before this visit and it was great to get there on Sunday.

This Could Be The Right Time For Naby Keita To Shine At Liverpool

Naby Keita’s Liverpool career hasn’t evolved as many had expected when he finally completed his £52.75m move from RB Leipzig in the summer of 2018. The Guinean international was seen as being a box-to-box midfielder that would give The Reds more drive from the middle of the park. Yet it was very much a stop […]
