Analysing Davinson Sanchez's Impressive Start to his Tottenham Career

Tottenham were quiet until the latter stages of the transfer window, but they made it count with some excellent additions that improved their squad. They managed to improve their defence and add more depth to the squad, which was crucial if they were to challenge for major trophies. Davinson Sanchez arrived with huge potential after an excellent debut campaign in European football at Ajax. There are few better young defenders in football and he will benefit hugely from the coaching of Mauricio …

Would Davinson Sanchez be a good signing for Tottenham?

Tottenham have yet to make a signing this summer, but they are determined to strengthen their squad before the transfer deadline. Davinson Sanchez is one player being heavily linked and the Ajax defender is believed to be keen on a move to North London. Spurs haven't been overly effective in the transfer market during the last 12 months, with Vincent Janssen and Moussa Sissoko being two big-name signings that underwhelmed.

Why Frank de Boer could be destined to fail at Crystal Palace

Why Frank de Boer could be destined to fail at Crystal Palace

They very often say that the game of football is entrenched in tradition and it’s tradition itself that has hindered its progress over the years. It’s always wonderful to have something desirable to hark back on, but the borderline that separates evolution from tradition never blurs out when it actually must. And rightly so, Chris Anderson and David Sally open their book ‘The Numbers Game’ by criticising football’s tendency to never stop taking a dip into the primitive. It says: …

Analysis of Transfers from European Leagues to Premier League - 1: Eredivisie

When I was writing about Davy Klaassen’s transfer to Everton from Ajax, someone suggested that I should also see whether his transfer is going to be a hit like Suarez or a flop like Janssen.  I thought it was a good idea and decided to look at the transfers in detail. While predicting whether Klaassen will be a Suarez or a Janssen is not possible for me but we can look at the trends and characteristics of transfers from different …

Manchester United vs Ajax | Europa League Final Preview

On May 24th, Ajax and Manchester United will meet at the Friends Arena in Stockholm for the Europa League final. Manchester United essentially have their season riding on this match.  They failed to get into the Champions League places after a bitterly disappointing league campaign saw them finish sixth.  They did win the EFL Cup, but a loss in this match would see this season end as a failure.  Manchester United cannot afford to miss out of the Champions League for …

Mourinho’s Europa League Gamble Could Prove Expensive for Manchester United

In the last few days, we have heard some very interesting things from Premier League managers. Pep Guardiola had a “Big Club” gaffe when he said that Barcelona or Bayern would have sacked him for a trophy-less season.

Part one: What the summer has shown for the PL's top clubs

Most fans don't look too much into the importance of the pre-season campaign but for many youth players it is one of the most important stages of the season. It's a chance to showcase their skills, put a marker down for a place in the Premier League squad and an opportunity to play alongside senior players in a competitive match. However, the pre-season period can also be very important for new signings. Some of this summer's top transfers will be …
Liverpool Lack Chemistry

Liverpool Lack Chemistry

Harry Redknapp was very fond of saying "Football is a simple game" when he initially took over from Juande Ramos and when he reflected on Andrea Villas Boas's reign. Player chemistry on the pitch is key to any successful team, go back through the ages and any successful team has partnerships on the pitch in various positions. The partnership that is taking the Premier League by storm is the Riyad Mahrez, Jamie Vardy partnership. Each knows what the others thoughts …
