Football feeds off narratives. And one of the main reasons why we love football does not actually have anything to with the sport itself. It's always the stories they build and give life to. The sport is better for them and naturally thrive on the tension that builds along. One such story in the Premier League this season - setting the tone since the transfer window, a tale that connects two football clubs and managers at loggerheads, one that took …
The Unrealised Potential of Theo Walcott

The Unrealised Potential of Theo Walcott

Theo Walcott is one of a few remaining members of Arsenal’s group of home-grown, British Golden Boys, plucked by Arsene Wenger as a teenager from Southampton in 2006 to join the Arsenal Academy and, presumably, be groomed for greatness.

Re-building a team like Manchester United Is not an easy task and Mourinho is looking at a total revamp of both the attack and defence. With the signing of Zlatan Ibrahimovich, the attack can now become solid, to Jose’s liking. Also, with the signing of youngster Eric Bailly is also a good addition to a lacklustre defence.

Sturridge's Time to Shine | Stats Compared to Rivals

Having scored the winner at Anfield against Stoke on the opening day of the season while still woefully short on match fitness, Daniel Sturridge showed humility in self-deprecation: "I want to credit the goalkeeper as well for such a great save; that's what won us the game, it wasn't my goal." Simon Mignolet had fumbled at a couple of crosses in a less than convincing start to his Anfield career before his late penalty save ensured Sturridge's strike would be …
