Spurs Topple Manchester City

Spurs Topple Manchester City

A decisive game between 2nd placed Spurs and 4th place City was irretrievably affected by a diabolical decision by referee Mark Clattenburg. Clattenburg adjudged that Raheem Sterling had hand balled the ball when replays show the ball struck his back first and then ricocheted up off his elbow.

Is Garde the Right Fit for Villa?

Is Garde the Right Fit for Villa?

After Tim Sherwood's sacking, Remi Garde has emerged as the favourite for the role.

He will bring a different outlook to Aston Villa as he will bring more tactical knowledge than Sherwood had. Moreover, Garde will know several of the players in the squad, …

Liverpool vs. Aston Villa Preview | Team News, Key Men and Stats

It is extremely difficult to find any positives in the early form shown by these two sides. Investing heavily in the summer, Liverpool have been nothing short of poor, with new signings failing to make an impact thus far.

Sherwood Vs Rodgers: Timmy Tactically Outclasses Brendan

Sherwood Vs Rodgers: Timmy Tactically Outclasses Brendan

He did it. Tim Sherwood improved his ratio of season to cup final appearances by defeating Brendan Rodgers' Liverpool in what was a comfortable win for Villa in the FA Cup Semi final. Taking nothing away from Sherwood, he just followed what the likes of Swansea, Arsenal and Manchester United have done in the previous month to trouble Liverpool and yet again Brendan Rodgers had no answer for it. The concerning part for Liverpool fans is the fact Rodgers if …
