The Premier League is A Tough Test for Most Non-English Players

The Premier League is A Tough Test for Most Non-English Players

“Can Messi do it on a rainy, windy Tuesday night at Stoke?”. Almost every Premier League fan must have asked or heard  this rhetorical question at least once in the last few years. While this particular version of the question alludes to the physical game the Potters were known for under Tony Pulis and the English weather, what the fans are asking is – would Messi be as successful in the Premier League as he is in La Liga? There …
Adnan Januzaj and Sunderland - A Good Match?

Adnan Januzaj and Sunderland - A Good Match?

Sunderland have got to play catch up this summer after unexpectedly losing Sam Allardyce to England. David Moyes has come into the club and returned to the Premier League after his disappointing spell at Manchester United. It is a good fit for the Scotsman and he has a good foundation left by Allardyce to build on. There is still work to be done in the transfer market this summer and they need to press on with recruitment. It is believed …

Manchester City vs Manchester United Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

Manchester City are all set to face-off Manchester United at the Etihad stadium this Sunday. Two teams known to be stellar individually and intense rivals, meet yet again, but have their performances lived upto expectations this season? In all honesty, these are two teams that have been underwhelming-ly ordinary in the Premier League this season – it is nearly 25 years since a Manchester derby was played between two teams both outside the top three. The 170th derby in October …
Januzaj's Premature Return

Januzaj's Premature Return

Adnan Januzaj’s return to Manchester United has proved to be beneficial so far. The reason behind his early return from the loan was him being accused of showing a bad attitude during his loan spell at Borussia Dortmund from Manchester United. The Belgian winger joined Dortmund at the start of the season after being warned that he was unlikely to be a first team regular under Louis van Gaal. But his spell in the Bundesliga was a flop: he failed …
Why Van Gaal Should Have Retained Adnan Januzaj

Why Van Gaal Should Have Retained Adnan Januzaj

An absolute whirlwind of a summer transfer window it was. Arguably, the busiest the club has had in years. Louis Van Gaal, during the summer, oversaw an influx of players from a variety of different leagues but also showed the door to a boatload of them, some expected, while a few others, totally out of the blue. While the departures of Robin Van Persie, Radamel Falcao and Angel Di Maria in the same window is something one can hardly envisage …
What's Going on With Adnan Januzaj?

What's Going on With Adnan Januzaj?

In what was a completely forgetful 2013/14 for Manchester United, there was still something to shout about with optimism for the fans, besides the 27 seconds after Patrice Evra's goal against Bayern Munich in Germany. Something about a boy who could do anything. Adnan Januzaj is a classic case of a young and skinny footballer blessed with a boatload of potential, bursting onto the scene only to go missing for large periods after all the form settles down. His two …
Adnan Januzaj: Will United's Youngster be Eclipsed by Their New Stars?

Adnan Januzaj: Will United's Youngster be Eclipsed by Their New Stars?

Ask any United fan to discuss the positives from last year's horrendous title defence and, after a brief pause during which they may start to cry, they'll almost certainly mention Adnan Januzaj. In his twenty-seven appearances last year, Januzaj contributed four goals and three assists. Not bad for a player plucked from the youth team. He also created 31 chances for a misfiring United attack. Despite his mazy dribbling skills, Januzaj also demomstrated his vision by successfully completing nearly five-hundred …
