Comparing Lingard to the Best Attacking Midfielders in the League

Comparing Lingard to the Best Attacking Midfielders in the League

The story of Jesse Lingard, a Warrington-born boyhood Manchester United fan going from being the perennial scapegoat that symbolised United's seeming mediocrity to the match-winning hero that the supporters did not quite deserve - is a remarkable one. What the now 24-year old has experienced in the last few weeks is an occupational evolution - paraphrasing Mourinho's words - and for humans that may not have had a Pokemon experience in their lives, that may sound a bit weird. But …
Why Arsenal must act in the January transfer window

Why Arsenal must act in the January transfer window

Arsenal faced their latest setback under Arsene Wenger as they were knocked out of the FA Cup by Championship club Nottingham Forest. This has been a competition that has brought a lot of success for the Frenchman in recent seasons, but he made wholesale changes and the squad players couldn’t deliver the victory required. There have been some on social media that have suggested it is a blessing in disguise, but it is another example of how the club have …

Is Pep Guardiola Right to Criticise the Premier League Fixture List?

Whilst a number of top European soccer leagues take a break over the Christmas and New Year period, the Premier League continues to serve up a feast of festive fixtures, much to the delight of sports fans around the world. Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola is just one of a handful of coaches in the English top flight to have taken umbrage with the FA's scheduling and has suggested that his side's four fixtures in 11 days is 'killing' his …
Is The Recent Criticism Of Nemanja Matic justified?

Is The Recent Criticism Of Nemanja Matic justified?

One of the most surprising transfers in the Premier League last summer was Nemanja Matic’s transfer from Chelsea to Manchester United as it is very rare for a player to be allowed to move from one of the biggest clubs in the country to another. Jose Mourinho was clearly a big fan of Matic during his spell with the Blues so when he had the opportunity to land the Serbian to his squad at Old Trafford, he pounced to sign …
Luke Shaw is Beginning to Thrive Under Mourinho

Luke Shaw is Beginning to Thrive Under Mourinho

One of the criticisms in a long list that Jose Mourinho has faced throughout his career is his lack of trust in young players. Although in 2017/18 with his continued faith in Marcus Rashford, shrewd management of Anthony Martial and outstanding use of Jesse Lingard (young, in terms of top-flight experience) - the Portuguese is proving them all wrong. And rather quietly so. It has been a weird campaign for the Red Devils, I called this spooky in November and …
Has Alvaro Morata been an upgrade on Diego Costa at Chelsea?

Has Alvaro Morata been an upgrade on Diego Costa at Chelsea?

Alvaro Morata was the villain of the piece as Chelsea failed to beat Arsenal on Wednesday night. The current champions had the better chances and should have put the game beyond doubt before Hector Bellerin popped up with an incredible equaliser. The Gunners showed good heart to avoid defeat, but they shouldn't have been given the opportunity to get back into the match. The visitors' striker has scored goals this season and appeared to be a decent addition, but yesterday's …
