Graham Taylor: A Loss To The Game

Last week saw the death of the former Watford, Aston Villa and Wolves manager Graham Taylor at the age of 72.

Graham Taylor was born in Worksop in 1944 and began playing professional football in 1962. His playing career was nothing to write home …

Reminiscing Over the Best Centre-Back Partnerships

Another Rashford Inspired Win for United

Another goal which turned out to be mightily important for Manchester United from Marcus Rashford sealed maximum points against what is arguably the worst side the Premier League has seen in years.
