Mourinho’s Europa League Gamble Could Prove Expensive for Manchester United

Mourinho’s Europa League Gamble Could Prove Expensive for Manchester United

In the last few days, we have heard some very interesting things from Premier League managers. Pep Guardiola had a “Big Club” gaffe when he said that Barcelona or Bayern would have sacked him for a trophy-less season. Last week, Jurgen Klopp was found wondering why Southampton seemed to have relaxed against Arsenal after giving Liverpool a very tough game. When this was followed by Liverpool thrashing West Ham 4-0 at London Stadium, Arsene Wenger wondered aloud about whether some …
Jurgen Klopp's Biggest Mistakes of the 2016-17 Season

Jurgen Klopp's Biggest Mistakes of the 2016-17 Season

When Jurgen Klopp arrived in Merseyside in October 2015, it seemed he could do no wrong. However, as his first full season in charge draws to a close, it's clear that even Klopp isn't perfect. He came to the Premier League as one of the most respected managers in Europe following his success in the Bundesliga with Mainz and Borussia Dortmund. Klopp certainly made his mark in his first six months in England too; Liverpool reached the finals of the …
Daniel Sturridge - The Nearly Man at the Nearly Club

Daniel Sturridge - The Nearly Man at the Nearly Club

There was once a player named Daniel Sturridge. Three years ago, he was one half of an SAS strike force with Luis Suarez at Liverpool FC. The British Special Forces reference, coined by the British media during the 2013-14 season, was well earned. Suarez and Sturridge terrorized countless defenses, successfully bombarding opposition goalmouths time and again that season. The team scored more than a 100 goals in the league, and he ended a bitter sweet season as a runner up, …
Klopp’s Late Substitutions Have Hurt Liverpool This Season

Klopp’s Late Substitutions Have Hurt Liverpool This Season

Liverpool fans are often trolled by competitor fans about always thinking at the start of every season that this will be their season. The Reds' optimism has almost been successful on two occasions in the last four seasons. But it has not materialised in a league title or indeed any silverware in the last few seasons, as at some point in the campaign a slip-up (pun intended) occurred that threw them off the track. Hence the derision from the other …
Mourinho's United signings: The good, the bad and the ugly

Mourinho's United signings: The good, the bad and the ugly

It's no secret that Manchester United spent big in the summer in an attempt to recapture the success which had made them one of the biggest clubs in Europe. Jose Mourinho was appointed as manager in May 2016 and he got straight to work, signing Eric Bailly in the hope of improving United's central defence. He followed it up with big-money moves for Paul Pogba and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, as well as a high-profile signing in Zlatan Ibrahimovic. However, Mourinho's four …
Manchester United walk a tightrope under Mourinho

Manchester United walk a tightrope under Mourinho

It should not have lasted this long, in theory. But it has, at least until the half-time whistle at the Emirates thanks to Liverpool's tepid 0-0 stalemate against Southampton. Following the final whistle, marking Mourinho's first defeat in a competitive game at the hands of Wenger in 16 attempts, United's season has reached the stage where they know full well what they must to do to finish on a high - with two trophies in the bag and Champions League qualification …
Mamadou Sakho Could Be the Defender Liverpool Need

Mamadou Sakho Could Be the Defender Liverpool Need

The last twelve months have been really hard on Mamadou Sakho. Few other footballers can compete with Sakho in terms of misfortune over the last twelve months. Danny Ings or Bastian Schweinsteiger perhaps but Sakho has seen misfortune from every professional aspect in the last one year. On April 23 last year, Liverpool received communication from UEFA about Sakho’s assumed doping violation. The club dropped him from the side and did not select him for any of the remaining games. …
Three goalkeepers to target if David De Gea leaves

Three goalkeepers to target if David De Gea leaves

David De Gea faces another important decision this summer as interest from Real Madrid refuses to go away. Marca reported last week that the Spanish giants are determined to sign the goalkeeper and that he has already asked Manchester United to let him leave at the end of the season. A more recent report by ESPN states that the Spanish international won't force a move, but it is clear that a transfer away from Old Trafford is a real possibility. …
