Southampton's Summer Transfers Have Weakened Their Attack

Among the many surprising stories that keep developing in the Premier League, Southampton’s ability to keep their level despite losing some of their best talent every summer, is quite a unique one. As I write this, they have just beaten Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium 3-1, after falling behind early in the first half. After 17 matches, they sit seventh in the league, still within reach of a top six spot. However, this is not an article in the praise …
The Jesse Lingard Hyperbole

The Jesse Lingard Hyperbole

Part of what makes football such an emotional and exhausting sport is opinions. Every fan has loads to say after a result, be it good or bad - some do it via the medium of Twitter or YouTube while a few privileged others get paid to do it in suits on national television. Like every group of supporters, the Manchester United fan-base is a cesspool of opinions that most often come across as very divisive and conflicting - particularly about some of the …
Wenger and The Blame Game

Wenger and The Blame Game

After an impressive run of form that saw Arsenal remain unbeaten in the Premier League since their opening day defeat to Liverpool, the Gunners suffered back-to-back defeats away at Everton and Manchester City. Some critics have been quick to suggest Arsenal are "bottling" a title challenge already, but it is surely far too early to make that kind of suggestion as even title winning teams have suffered dips in form at some point.

Should Arsenal maintain the Ozil-Sanchez duo at all costs?

Should Arsenal maintain the Ozil-Sanchez duo at all costs?

Arsenal have always had an issue with maintaining their quality players and in convincing them to extend their contracts.

For example, Ashley Cole, Mathieu Flamini, Kolo Toure, Samir Nasri and Robin Van Persie all had some issue with the club when it came to renewing contracts, and ultimately they all ended up shifting camp. Whether …

Alexis Sanchez: Arsenal's World Class Striker

While Arsenal lost for the first time in 14 Premier League matches on Tuesday, Alexis Sanchez continued his fantastic start to the season with his 12th Premier League goal.  Sanchez has scored goals his entire Arsenal career, but mainly from the left or right wing.  This season though Arsene Wenger has deployed Sanchez from a central position and it has proved to be a stroke of genius so far.

Why Pep Guardiola has to change to be a success at Manchester City

Why Pep Guardiola has to change to be a success at Manchester City

Adaptability and flexibility are supposed to be massive parts of a manager’s armory in football. A lack of it can end up rendering him and his methods useless and outdated, allowing other, more flexible sides to run over them in a blink of an eye. If there’s a side that is currently facing this situation in a substantial manner, then it is Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City. Things have gone quite wrong for the Citizens recently and the 4-2 hammering at …
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. …
