Daniel Sturridge - The Nearly Man at the Nearly Club

Daniel Sturridge - The Nearly Man at the Nearly Club

There was once a player named Daniel Sturridge. Three years ago, he was one half of an SAS strike force with Luis Suarez at Liverpool FC. The British Special Forces reference, coined by the British media during the 2013-14 season, was well earned. Suarez and Sturridge terrorized countless defenses, successfully bombarding opposition goalmouths time and again that season. The team scored more than a 100 goals in the league, and he ended a bitter sweet season as a runner up, …
Arsene Wenger should leave on a high but his time has come

Arsene Wenger should leave on a high but his time has come

Arsene Wenger's career is seemingly coming to an end at Arsenal with his contract set to expire at the end of the season. So far there has been no indication of an extension and form in the new year has not helped his case. It's become common place to put your money on Arsenal finishing in fourth place and you'd be forgiven. They always seem to secure Champions League football but fail to challenge for the title in the final …
Should Aaron Ramsey Leave Arsenal?

Should Aaron Ramsey Leave Arsenal?

Arsenal have been struggling with the same issues time and again, and this season appears to be no different. Wenger failed to do anything impactful in the transfer window, and their game on field is weak and seems unmotivated. Fans and critics are both tired of the same thing they have been subjected to for almost a decade now. Now, another reason for criticism is the way Aaron Ramsey’s fitness was handled. Ramsey has been prey to injuries off late, …
A Blast from the Past - Returning Players

A Blast from the Past - Returning Players

With on-going speculation of Cristiano Ronaldo’s return to Manchester United building each day, it got us thinking, just how often have players returned to their beloved clubs in the Premier League? It’s common to see your club’s star man pack up and start a fresh in Europe at top clubs, Real Madrid, Barcelona or Bayern Munich. But it seems the grass isn’t always greener on the other side and even Ronaldo can be tempted by a return to England. Here …
Guilty Pleasure of a Liverpool fan - Thierry Henry

Guilty Pleasure of a Liverpool fan - Thierry Henry

We’ve all got one. The one we weren’t allowed to look at; the one we had to admire in secret, from a distance. One more appropriate to deny than to acknowledge, to dismiss than to appreciate. Guilty pleasures in football usually cross supporting lines. It’s very seldom that one can support one of the top sides and not suddenly themselves in awe, in nearly shameful veneration of a particular talent that not only plays for a rival team, but in …

The Rise And Fall Of Robin van Persie

The Rise And Fall Of Robin van Persie

Two main talking points arose from an interview with Robin van Persie earlier this week; he admitted that he wasn't happy with his form, and that he was unsure of his future. The Dutchman has scored only 8 goals this season for the Reds, and with a return like that, you have to say that he could be right to be worried! Van Persie arrived in the Premier League in May 2004 after growing unhappy at Feyenoord and an ever …
Alexis Sanchez to Arsenal: What Will He Bring to the Side?

Alexis Sanchez to Arsenal: What Will He Bring to the Side?

After weeks of speculation about where he would end up, Alexis Sanchez was announced as an Arsenal player.  Sanchez is the Gunners' second major statement of intent in the last 11 months with the signing of Mesut Ozil last summer being the other.  The signing of Sanchez has proved a coup for manager Arsene Wenger, stealing Sanchez out from under the nose of fellow English team Liverpool.  After years of being tight with the cash, Arsenal have not only made …
