Evra to West Ham United: A David Moyes Classic

Evra to West Ham United: A David Moyes Classic

As a Manchester United fan, the prospect of having Patrice Evra back in the Premier League is positively exciting. The 36-year old full-back has been - in his pomp, one of the finest all-round defenders in the Premier League era, certainly for Manchester United under Sir Alex Ferguson. West Ham United, since recruiting David Moyes, have steadily found their feet in the Premier League and are on the way up, albeit in a laborious fashion. The Hammers sit 12th in …
What Can West Ham Expect From Jordan Hugill?

What Can West Ham Expect From Jordan Hugill?

He signed for just £25,000 from Port Vale back in June 2014 and leaves Deepdale as Preston North End's most expensive sold player ever. Hugill handed in a transfer request towards the end of the summer transfer window that was rejected, but the 25-year-old departed the club on January’s deadline day to join West Ham United of the Premier League. Simon Grayson brought him to the football club as a young, hungry and slightly unpredictable centre-forward, and he went on …
An Assessment of United's Returning Loan Army

An Assessment of United's Returning Loan Army

When Manchester United's class of 92 was honored with the 'Special Merit Award' a few years ago, for their footballing achievements in the 90's, a video was made in tribute to those involved, composed of interesting interviews from coach Eric Harrison, the players themselves and Sir Alex Ferguson. The Scotsman who has overseen a steady influx of young homegrown players making an indelible impression on Manchester United's history, said something very simple yet deeply profound, which funnily enough, does not hold as …

Chelsea Vs Sunderland Preview | Stats, Key Men & Team News

This Sunday, the Premier League season comes to an end as all twenty clubs play their final matches in the afternoon. It has been a very interesting season, with several ups and downs for most of the clubs. But two clubs’ future was almost certain by the end of March. Bar a miracle or two, no one was going to stop Chelsea from winning the league title this season. Even if they had a late scare it was nothing serious. …
Tottenham Hotspur and the Curious Curse of Wembley Stadium

Tottenham Hotspur and the Curious Curse of Wembley Stadium

Wembley- The Home of English Football. From Alf Ramsey lifting the first (and last) World Cup Trophy for the three lions in 1966 to Diego Maradona dazzling the 1986 World Cup Finale; from Ronald Koeman's cracking European League winner against Sampdoria in 1992 to Rene Higuita's unbelievable scorpion kick in 1995; Wembley has seen it all. Earlier in the season, Tottenham and the FA agreed for the Cockerels to host their European games at Wembley for 2016-17 season. Furthermore, the …

Manchester United v Sunderland Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

On Boxing Day, Manchester United welcome David Moyes back to Old Trafford as his Sunderland side prepare for a match with vital importance for both teams, but for two totally different reasons. Manchester United have hit a good run of form, after their abysmal start to the season.  Their three straight Premier League wins leave them just four points off the top four.  But after the poor start to the season they had, every point is crucial, especially points available at …
Mata: The Special Juan in United's season thus far

Mata: The Special Juan in United's season thus far

Jose Mourinho, for whatever reason, didn't rate Juan Mata as an important part of his (then) future plans at Chelsea and he was eventually sold to Manchester United. The dramatic irony lies in the fact that Mourinho too would not be part of the future plans of Chelsea, while Mata would go on to regularly excel in a team struggling to truly recover from the retirement of Alex Ferguson, and eventually be one of the few shining lights in Jose's current chapter at Old …
Scout Report: Sunderland's Upcoming Star Lynden Gooch

Scout Report: Sunderland's Upcoming Star Lynden Gooch

The manner in which the Premier League youngsters come through academies at certain clubs but a majority of them get stuck at around the 'bottleneck age', is one of the strangest things in English football right now. This transpires primarily to English players, but foreign players too are the receiving end of this stagnation. The 'bottleneck age' is a one that exists around a time when a player is 20 or 21, or say something Wayne Rooney somehow survived during …
