Could Young Premier League Stars Follow Oliver Burke?

Could Young Premier League Stars Follow Oliver Burke?

Eyebrows were raised when Oliver Burke left Nottingham Forest in the summer for RB Leipzig for £13m. Recently, two ex-Premier League players: John Hartson and Jermaine Jenas suggested that the Scottish winger had only moved to the German Bundesliga newcomers for the money and questioned the role of his agent in the deal. Hartson cited the potential for Burke to have gone to West Brom or Sunderland instead of a team Hartson had never heard of. Hartson's apparent ignorance of European football …
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 …
Where does Sissoko fit in at Tottenham?

Where does Sissoko fit in at Tottenham?

The main talking point of deadline day was the battle for Moussa Sissoko, who eventually joined Tottenham for a £30m fee. They beat Everton to his signature, but it has left people questioning the move, as it isn't clear how the Frenchman fits in at White Hart Lane. For a £30m investment, it would be expected that the player coming in improves the starting eleven at the club, but that might not be the case with Sissoko. Despite his undoubted …
Big Sam for England?

Big Sam for England?

The way certain sections of the UK media built themselves up for the inevitable disappointment at Euro 2016 with England, it seems they really haven’t learned from history and after the departure of the beleaguered Roy Hodgson, it seems the FA haven’t learned either. Portugal winning Euro 2016 was really a victory for tactical prowess over superior talent.  Despite having a genuine world superstar in their midst and some talented players in their squad, Portugal probably shouldn’t have been able …

Andros Townsend's £13m Move to Crystal Palace

After six months in the North East, Andros Townsend has come back to London after moving from Newcastle United to Crystal Palace.  The English winger made a £12m move from Tottenham to Newcastle in January and now has made a £13m move from Newcastle to Crystal Palace.

Georginio Wijnaldum - a good fit for Spurs?

Georginio Wijnaldum - a good fit for Spurs?

Georginio Wijnaldum came to the Premier League last summer, joining Newcastle in a surprise move, with many considering him good enough to play for a top six club. He had a mixed first season, but his return of 11 goals and 5 assists was very good, especially given Newcastle were relegated. He showed that he was suited to the Premier League and he was one of the few players in the Magpies' squad that came out of the season with …
Do Crystal Palace really need Andros Townsend?

Do Crystal Palace really need Andros Townsend?

Andros Townsend had a great second half of the season after moving to Newcastle and he made the preliminary England squad as a result. He didn't manage to prevent Newcastle from getting relegated, but that could turn out to be a huge positive for Crystal Palace, who are believed to the frontrunners for his signature. There was a belief that he might stay at Newcastle, but the Palace move is looking too good to turn down. It will allow him …
