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'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.

Are Arsenal in need of a change?

Are Arsenal in need of a change?

It's been a decade since Arsenal competed in the Champions League final against Barcelona in 2006 but have the club gone backwards despite taking part in the competition every year since?

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.

If Arsene Wenger goes, who should Arsenal replace him with?

If Arsene Wenger goes, who should Arsenal replace him with?

It's that time of year again.  Arsenal have bowed out of the Champions League, crashed out of the FA Cup, and, despite a 2-0 win over Everton on Saturday, their title hopes are hanging by a thread.  Once again, Arsenal fans are split, plenty want Arsene Wenger to stay, but plenty want him to go. This seemingly happens every year, although the board will never sack their most successful manager, it'll be up to him to decide to leave.  If the …
Where are the Premier League's world class strikers?

Where are the Premier League's world class strikers?

It seems a very long time ago since Arsenal fans witnessed their emphatic strike partnership of Theirry Henry and Dennis Bergkamp ripping up the Premier League every week. The same generation were able to appreciate Manchester United’s attackers in all their glory – from Cristiano Ronaldo to Ruud Van Nisterooy. Even in recent seasons, ex Liverpool striker Luis Suarez, brought more quality to the Premier League as Chelsea waved goodbye to their long-serving Ivory Coast international, Didier Drogba. This season, …
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 …
