The Premier League: Why it's still the best league in the world

The Premier League: Why it's still the best league in the world

Many football fans point to La Liga as the number 1 league in the world because of the technically superior aspects of the Spanish game. Some look to Germany's Bundesliga for the overall package ( Fantastic fans, marketing of brand, precision based football) Some fans strangely, even look to Serie A and Ligue 1 for it's "entertainment value." But the English Premier league is way ahead of all mentioned because it is a league where anything can happen, and, probably will. …

Liverpool: Is "Injury Time" a Growing Concern?

In Football, time either heals all wounds or destroys all dreams, hopes and ambition. A few weeks back Liverpool’s squad depth was an attribute that pundits and analysts pointed towards as one of the main reasons for their good run. So much so that plenty of betting sites were tipping the reds to fight their way to the title. Now with the loss of certain key players, the Reds again hover just above that “crisis mode” phase. One or two …
Why is Steven Gerrard such an anomaly and not the norm?

Why is Steven Gerrard such an anomaly and not the norm?

Mata: The Special Juan in United's season thus far

Mata: The Special Juan in United's season thus far

Jose Mourinho, for whatever reason, didn't rate Juan Mata as an important part of his (then) future plans at Chelsea and he was eventually sold to Manchester United. The dramatic irony lies in the fact that Mourinho too would not be part of the future plans of Chelsea, while Mata would go on to regularly excel in a team struggling to truly recover from the retirement of Alex Ferguson, and eventually be one of the few shining lights in Jose's current chapter at Old …
Will international Breaks decide the EPL Title ?

Will international Breaks decide the EPL Title ?

EPL Fans and indeed club fans all over the world dread the international break with all their hearts. It almost always comes around at the wrong time and provides an opportunity for country managers to damage some star players by over training/ overplaying them. At club level, players have regimes suited to their specific fitness and dietary needs. At international level, due to lack time with their players, there is no time for all the fancy bits and individual attention. …
Manchester DisUnited? Mourinho's Moods Baffle Fans

Manchester DisUnited? Mourinho's Moods Baffle Fans

Supreme Confidence. Winner. Darling of the Media. No, we’re not talking about Jurgen Klopp, but Jose Mourinho of the past. Jose was a real winner. He exuded the swagger of a man who truly enjoyed what he did, believed in what he did… one who never doubted himself, who would nonchalantly throw his Champions League winners' medals into the crowd minutes after receiving it, then disappeared into the darkness of the tunnel, many times off to a new challenge. Nowadays, …
Why Are EPL Strikers Out of Fashion This Season?

Why Are EPL Strikers Out of Fashion This Season?

Strikers. The  Glamour Boys. The Hansel's and Derek Zoolanders of the football world. The match winners. All hopes of glory rested squarely on their shoulders. Not anymore. Well, this season at least. This EPL season has seen a dramatic decrease in striker influence. Midfielders are now the main outlet for goals. Heck, even defenders are chipping away at their trade. Their relevance in the overall scheme of things will never fully diminish, but somehow managers in the EPL this season are …
