Four Premier League players that could catch the eye at the World Cup

There will be a lot of players that catch the eye over the next month at the World Cup. It is important not to overrate any individual based on their performances in Russia.

The majority of signings are internationals and a lot of those will be representing their country at the World Cup. Here …
Too Soon for Jamaal Lascelles to Leave Newcastle United

Too Soon for Jamaal Lascelles to Leave Newcastle United

Jamaal Lascelles has been one of the breakout stars of the Premier League season and he has now established himself at the top level. The Newcastle United captain played a key role as Rafa Benitez’s side finished in the top ten in their first season back in the top-flight. This will be seen as just the start for the Magpies and defender, with both having loftier ambitions. The recent England squad announcement didn’t feature Lascelles, but he is likely to …
Who Should Win Premier League Manager Of The Year?

Who Should Win Premier League Manager Of The Year?

The Premier League season is once again almost over, and just about everything has been wrapped up. The title has been won, the top four and relegation battles have all but been decided, and even the European places seem pretty much certain. And whilst there may yet be a twist or two in the tale, I don’t think it’s too early to have a look at which managers are in serious contention for the coveted Manager of the Year prize, …
Javier Manquillo Moves to Newcastle: Third Time Lucky in the EPL?

Javier Manquillo Moves to Newcastle: Third Time Lucky in the EPL?

When Javier Manquillo joined Liverpool on a two-season long loan in the summer of 2014, he was hoping for game time at Anfield, and perhaps a permanent move in the future. The Reds did not have a first choice right-back and it gave the Spaniard a great opportunity to shine. But it was not to be. Manquillo did not shine in the ten Premier League appearances he made and then Brendan Rodgers’ chopping and changing of the formations ensured that …

Mauricio Pellegrino - Can He Breathe Life into a Dull Southampton Side?

One of the worst kept secrets of the last Premier League season was Claude Puel’s fate after the season ended. It was pretty clear to the Southampton fans and probably the players as well, that Puel’s days at St. Mary’s were numbered. As expected, Puel was sacked a couple of weeks back and the hunt for a new manager was begun by the Southampton board. According to some sources, the Southampton fans were looking forward to welcoming the recently sacked …
Is this the right time for Newcastle United to be taken over?

Is this the right time for Newcastle United to be taken over?

Mike Ashley is approaching ten years as owner of Newcastle United and his tenure can be described as eventful but unsuccessful. There has been plenty going on at St James’ Park off the pitch, but the football hasn’t been great, with the Magpies suffering two relegations during that time. Supporters will never take to the English businessman, as he lacks ambition and has done a lot to antagonise them. However, there has been a cooling of tensions over the last …
Newcastle United: Trying to Secure Future Through Early Transfers

Newcastle United: Trying to Secure Future Through Early Transfers

Newcastle United is a club with some incredible fluctuations in terms of their performances. As a team, they have been known to switch off for an entire half of a season as much as they have been capable of beating the best in the land with a handsome margin (6-1 against Spurs in 2015-16 comes to mind). These fluctuations in performances, combined with fluctuating policies at the top, have ensured that since the start of the Premier League era, Newcastle …
Liverpool - Klopp Brain Freeze moments stacking up

Liverpool - Klopp Brain Freeze moments stacking up

On a night when the football world was hoping Liverpool would thrash Leicester as punishment for sacking one of the last few gentlemen in the game, Claudio Ranieri, it was typical that Liverpool would  capitulate into what has become their standard state of mediocrity in 2017. The spurs blitz a fortnight ago just an anomaly amidst a myriad of lacklustre performances. It had been 16 days since Liverpool's last match, so the excuse of fatigue could not be used at …
