Jordan Pickford to Everton: Toffees Get a Sweet Deal

Jordan Pickford to Everton: Toffees Get a Sweet Deal

There were very few things about Sunderland that were positive during the entire campaign in the 2016-17 season. From the outset, the team was abject, management uninspiring and outlook doomed. The few bright spots included their brave young fan Bradley Lowery’s presence at several of their games; his favourite player – Jermain Defoe and his goal scoring exploits in a lost cause, and equally futile – Jordan Pickford’s brilliant goal keeping, which combined with Defoe’s heroics in attack, dangled some …
3 Potential Candidates for the Armband at Manchester United

3 Potential Candidates for the Armband at Manchester United

Manchester United, as a club, has by nature rallied around one player who usually tends to be the guy with the armband. At Old Trafford, there has always been a definitive representation on the pitch - in the mold of the manager and in some cases, even the supporters - who could identify with a particular individual, more than any other. Oftentimes, the teams are shaped in the image of these said players - The teams in the 80's - that are …
Is this the right time for Newcastle United to be taken over?

Is this the right time for Newcastle United to be taken over?

Mike Ashley is approaching ten years as owner of Newcastle United and his tenure can be described as eventful but unsuccessful. There has been plenty going on at St James’ Park off the pitch, but the football hasn’t been great, with the Magpies suffering two relegations during that time. Supporters will never take to the English businessman, as he lacks ambition and has done a lot to antagonise them. However, there has been a cooling of tensions over the last …

Would Alvaro Morata be a Good Signing for Manchester United?

The Telegraph are reporting that Manchester United have agreed terms with Alvaro Morata ahead of a potential summer move to Old Trafford. They have yet to agree a fee with Real Madrid, but it is clear that the Spaniard is the club's priority target to replace Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who has been released in recent days. The striker wants to leave the Bernabeu this summer after a frustrating season that saw him play a supporting role to Karim Benzema and United …
A Year of Ibrahimovic - In Images and Words

A Year of Ibrahimovic - In Images and Words

Soon after the confirmation that Manchester United would not be extending the services of 35-year old center-forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic, my mind raced back to early June last year, when all eyes were on France and the European Championships - and how excited I was at the thought of a certain Swede holding the famous red shirt and smiling at the cameras, exuding the aura of a king arriving at the battlefield he has yet to conquer.

Arsene Wenger in and as The Count of Monte Cristo

On May 26th, Arsene Wenger bared his soul to the world. “I believe there's a difference between being criticized and being treated in a way that human beings don't deserve. The lack of respect from some has been a disgrace and I will never accept that. I will never forget it. The behavior of some people during the season, that is what hurts me most.” For a person who had spoken a couple of years back of having learnt to …
