When Chelsea were on a rampage last season, several of Antonio Conte’s fellow managers in the Premier League had pointed out that they were flying high due to the lack of European football. This season, Conte’s men seem determined to prove those managers right. After their shocking loss to Crystal Palace on Saturday, there is no respite for the Blues as they host AS Roma on Wednesday night in the third game week of the Champions League. In the post-match …
Mohamed Salah to Liverpool Could Prove to Be a Great Signing

Mohamed Salah to Liverpool Could Prove to Be a Great Signing

In the last one week, Mohamed Salah took several flights from Cairo to Liverpool or London, was spotted several times at airports across the UK, and finally underwent several medicals at Melwood. If we believe the hype generated by Liverpool fans’ wait for the Egyptian winger then all these things are true. For some reason, Salah was seen doing all the above and that too multiple times. But you really can’t blame the Reds’ fans. As soon as the last …

Why Conte is so keen on Radja Nainggolan for Chelsea's rebuild

It's a well documented fact that Chelsea severely under-performed last season. While Guus Hiddink was able to somewhat steady the ship, the Blues still finished in 10th spot. Antonio Conte will want to implement his own style and will be bringing in players who would help him do the same in his bid to make Chelsea a force again, quickly. Fans who have watched him play have been calling for Radja Nainggolan to be targeted by big Premier League clubs in …

Manchester City vs AS Roma | Champions League Preview

Manchester City will be hoping to get their first win of the European group stages when they host AS Roma on Tuesday, knowing that anything other than three points will put their hopes of progressing from the group stage for a second time in two campaigns under serious threat. The Italians took care of business against CSKA Moscow while City lost to German giants Bayern during Matchweek 1, so they visit the Etihad with a lot more confidence and under …
Vidal or Strootman: Who will fix Manchester United's 'broken' midfield?

Vidal or Strootman: Who will fix Manchester United's 'broken' midfield?

Roy Keane, for all his flaws as a manager/pundit/human being, was a fantastic footballer. His performance in United's 1999 Champions League semi-final second leg, against Juventus in Turin, is quite rightly heralded as one of the most complete midfield performances of recent times. Some argue that when he left Manchester United to join Celtic after very public fallouts with Sir Alex and many of United's players, Keane left a huge hole in their midfield that has never been completely filled.
