Part Two: What the Summer has Shown the PL's Top Clubs

The Premier League season starts again in just a few weeks and already the pre-season campaign has shown lots of things. Manchester United, Chelsea, Manchester City and Everton have all welcomed new managers to the frame, whilst Claudio Raneri, Jurgen Klopp and Mauricio Pochettino look to build upon their developments from last year. It's already clear Antonio Conte's got his hands full at Chelsea after the Blues' stuttering start to their pre-season campaign but Jose Mourinho looks set to field …
Would Ayew be a Good Fit at West Ham?

Would Ayew be a Good Fit at West Ham?

On Sunday, news broke that West Ham have made a £20m bid for Andre Ayew as they continue to search for attacking reinforcements. This came hours after it was announced that the club had agreed a fee for Diafra Sakho with West Brom.

Can Arsenal Take the Next Step?

Can Arsenal Take the Next Step?

Even as a rival fan, I can appreciate the contribution Arsene Wenger has made not only to Arsenal, but to the Premier League as a whole. Some may disagree, but I feel the Frenchman somewhat revolutionised football in this country when he arrived. From diet and preparation, to philosophy and style of play, to simply being a successful foreign coach, despite most people having never heard of him when he was appointed, Wenger made an impact that will stand the …
Arsenal Injuries: Who Could Miss The First Game?

Arsenal Injuries: Who Could Miss The First Game?

Arsenal and Arsene Wenger have been the recipient of a lot of bad luck as they seem to be facing some issue or the other, every single season. However, with their opening game against Liverpool, the Gunners appear to be face-to-face with a problem already. Wenger is likely to find himself without some regular players for the opening of the season, including his top two forwards. That will leave Theo Walcott as the only option up front, unless Wenger manages …

Manchester United are making progress under new manager Mourinho even before a ball has been kicked and that should come as good news for the supporters after years of negligence and unstructured transfer activity. Like his predecessor Louis van Gaal, Jose Mourinho has decided to prioritise, axing players that will not feature in his plans over bringing in new recruits and while that is not a bad sign in terms of the direction the club is heading towards, it's imperative …

Wales Euro 2016 Preview

For Wales, 15th time is the charm.  After missing out on the first 14 European Championships, the Welsh qualified for their first this summer.  Led by star man Gareth Bale, the Welsh not only qualified but stand a good chance of getting out of their group.

Possible Concerns Surrounding Mourinho's Appointment

Possible Concerns Surrounding Mourinho's Appointment

Jose Mourinho’s return to the EPL after quitting from Chelsea was no secret, as reports of him taking up the reigns of Manchester United from Louis Van Gaal started doing rounds since January. It is obvious that United have got themselves an upgrade from many different vantage points. Mourinho brings eyeballs and attention wherever he goes. Why this matters is because, at the end of the day, the Glazers are running a sports entertainment business. While the club and the …
A Change In Philosophy For The Premier League?

A Change In Philosophy For The Premier League?

Leicester City winning the Premier League was not just a shock of epic proportions that made news all over the world, it could well be the catalyst of a change in philosophical approach for much of the league’s teams. Whilst yes, it is a win that offers hope to many other clubs that the underdog can have their day against the big spenders, it’s perhaps the way they got there that could be their true legacy. Smart scouting and coaching …
