Premier League Clubs and Wasted Talents

Premier League Clubs and Wasted Talents

The Premier League is probably the most exciting proposition in the world for an up-and-coming foreign star. Over the last few decades, we've seen the rise of names such as Thierry Henry, Cristiano Ronaldo and Luis Suarez among many others. They all arrived with a good reputation, bags of talent, strong determination and left as superstars.   There is, however, one big factor that made them what they are: they were all given the time and space to adjust in …

Analysing Lucas Perez's Move to Arsenal

On August 30th, Arsenal finally confirmed the signing of Deportivo La Coruna striker Lucas Perez.  The 27 year-old has signed for a reported 17.1m from Deportivo.  After multiple summers of Arsenal fans begging Arsene Wenger to sign another striker, Wenger has finally given in and brought in the Spaniard.

David Luiz - A Panic Buy, But One That Needed to Happen

David Luiz made a sensational return to Chelsea on deadline day as the club finally brought in a central defender. They had been trying to sign one all summer, with Kalidou Koulibaly being the priority target. However they couldn't agree a deal with Napoli, which left them desperately searching for another option during the final days of the window.

Why Can't Southampton Keep Hold of Their Star Players?

In recent years, Southampton have become one of the Premier League's best performing clubs. Under Maurico Pochettino and Ronald Koeman, Southampton qualified for European competition and have started to make a name for themselves as one of the league's toughest opponents.

Do West Ham Need to Sign a Right-Back?

Do West Ham Need to Sign a Right-Back?

It looked like Michail Antonio was going to be used as West Ham's starting right-back this season after he impressed there towards the end of the last campaign. However, he made mistakes against Domzale and Chelsea, which led to him being removed from the position. It was the right move as Antonio is much better when used on the wing and could have become a liability at right-back. He doesn't have the defensive experience in terms of positioning and could …
Why Fonte Could be the Right Man for Man United

Why Fonte Could be the Right Man for Man United

Manchester United have made a bright start to the Premier League in 2016/17 - as good a start as they have had in the last three seasons. A comfortable win at home against Southampton, a fixture they have not won since 2013, must lift the morale in the red half of Manchester, after all the doom and gloom in the second half of last campaign. The biggest positive from this start, besides the results and performance of course is the …
