Arsene Wenger should leave on a high but his time has come

Arsene Wenger's career is seemingly coming to an end at Arsenal with his contract set to expire at the end of the season. So far there has been no indication of an extension and form in the new year has not helped his case. It's become common place to put your money on Arsenal finishing in fourth place and you'd be forgiven. They always seem to secure Champions League football but fail to challenge for the title in the final …
Top Five Manchester United Signings Post the Ferguson Era

Top Five Manchester United Signings Post the Ferguson Era

Manchester United have, since the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson not only massive struggled on the pitch (and still coming to terms by the way) but also significantly off it. United have never really been known to make huge superstar signings blowing teams out of the water, under the Scot and more often it was the opposite, as the Red Devils normally ended up selling players of the highest quality to rivals in Europe - usually Real Madrid. But this …

Magnificent Martial Keeps United in the Hunt for Second Place

Manchester United notched up their 13th win in the league - a facile 2-0 with goals from Juan Mata and Anthony Martial. United, after a slow start, quickly shifted gears to produce what was one of their finest first half performances, certainly since their last defeat in the league against Chelsea - 16 games ago.

Marcos Alonso - Best Signing Made Last Summer?

Marcos Alonso - Best Signing Made Last Summer?

Not many people would have thought that the Spanish left-back would have been the signing of the summer when it was announced he had joined Chelsea and few more would hold that view now. However, he has had a hugely positive impact on Chelsea's season and he made the Blues a much better side. The main thing that Alonso has provided to Chelsea is balance.

Liverpool Drifting But Not Due to FSG or Klopp

After his side dropped points again to a relegation zone team on Saturday, Jurgen Klopp admitted that the fans were justified in their anger and that the team deserved all the criticism they have received over the last few weeks, and especially after the defeat at the KCom Stadium.

Goals, Golden Boot and the Race for Europe

2016/17 has been a campaign littered with bright patches of high quality football, plenty of goals and teams in the top seven places going toe to toe in the rat race to win the pot of money that comes with qualifying for the next edition of the Champions League. It should not come as a surprise, given the influx of managerial talent, the new 5.1 billion TV deal, that has brought with it an assemblage of superstar footballers attracted by astronomical wages. …

Klopp's flops - Liverpool Players Letting Their Manager Down

Jurgen Klopp did not make any additions to the Liverpool squad in the January transfer window. He believed that his troops, made up mainly of the Brendan Rodgers Brigade, were ready to go to war for him.  Unfortunately for him, they seem to have lost their weapons, and need to find them, fast. “Rome wasn’t built in a day, Give Klopp a chance to rebuild LFC” – a common line seen on social media support groups. The problem is, Klopp needed …
Why Arsene Wenger has Himself to Blame for Arsenal's Mentality Problems

Why Arsene Wenger has Himself to Blame for Arsenal's Mentality Problems

While nothing seemed to be going right for Arsenal at Stamford Bridge, Arsene Wenger gazed at his ailing players, expressionless and giving the impression that he had resigned to the fact that the Gunners will end up enduring another embarrassment. Olivier Giroud did pull one back late in the game, but it was probably more than what Arsenal deserved, considering their pathetic showing at the Bridge. The loss came days after their home ousting at the hands of Walter Mazzarri’s …
