Fernando Torres: The England Years Recounted

It's August 19, 2007 and Liverpool's newest Spanish export, Fernando Torres, had just opened his account for the club in the 16th minute v Chelsea on his Anfield debut. A first for 'El Niño' in a Liverpool shirt, it was the birth of something special in Merseyside. Born in Fuenlabrada (Madrid), Fernando José Torres Sanz was living the dream playing professionally for his hometown club, Atletico Madrid. His grandfather had molded him into a passionate fan at a very young …
Transfer Deadline Day Flops

Transfer Deadline Day Flops

The modern phenomenon of Transfer Deadline day for a lot of football fans has become something like FA Cup final day. Football fans of various clubs arrange to take the day off work, get a load of their mates around, have a few beers and spend the day glued to Sky Sports News to see what teams pull off the biggest transfer of the day.

Guilty Pleasures of an Arsenal fan -  Fernando Torres

Guilty Pleasures of an Arsenal fan - Fernando Torres

Like all fans I have clubs and players I love and despise to the very core of my football-shaped heart. Let me first explain the quandary behind my choice of guilty pleasure, before I start to gush about 'El Nino'. As a club, I despise Liverpool and most of it's fanbase. A modern arrogance, fill with self-entitlement founded upon glories achieved in a far-gone age often spews from their mouths. As a result, you can imagine how satisfying the last …
The Curious Case of Radamel Falcao

The Curious Case of Radamel Falcao

When Radamel Falcao joined Manchester United on deadline day of last season it was supposed to be the cherry on top of a summer of marquee spending. With a club record already paid for Angel Di Maria, United seemed to have out done themselves by securing the services of the man who had been arguably the best out and out striker in Europe for the past few seasons. They had even protected themselves against his injury being a long term …
5 Summer Signings to Improve Liverpool

5 Summer Signings to Improve Liverpool

Liverpool’s season promised a lot but delivered very little. Most of the players that were brought in the summer window last year were getting to step into the bigger leagues and a chance to make a name for themselves at one of the most iconic clubs in the world.  The success rate in the transfer market for the Merseyside club is not high and that could be down to the reason that the players that have left were never adequately …
Will Loic Remy Be A Decent Addition For Chelsea?

Will Loic Remy Be A Decent Addition For Chelsea?

Many people believed Chelsea's strike-force to be the main reason that they fell at the final hurdle last season and that has been put right as Chelsea have replaced all three of their strikers from last year. Demba Ba left for Besiktas, Samuel Eto'o is now playing for Everton and Fernando Torres has joined AC Milan on a two year loan. None of these players broke the ten goal barrier in the league, which is very poor considering the supply …
Are Chelsea Favourites to Win the League?

Are Chelsea Favourites to Win the League?

After not winning a trophy for the second straight season, Jose Mourinho will have been left feeling disappointed with his Chelsea side that ended the campaign in third place, behind Man City and Liverpool. Although it was his first season back in charge at the London club, since leaving in 2007, Mourinho would have expected to at least have something to show for his efforts last season. After calling Arsenal boss, Arsene Wenger a "Specialist in Failure", it seems ironic …
Spain vs Holland Match Preview | FIFA World Cup 2014 | Group B

Spain vs Holland Match Preview | FIFA World Cup 2014 | Group B

Group B is a hotly anticipated group and it's easy to see why with the opening match being a repeat of the 2010 final. Of course Spain won on that occasion and they've gone from strength to strength since, winning their last three major tournaments, while Holland have struggled recently as they try and bring through a new generation of Dutch footballers. Both will be worrying about their group as they also have to face the much fancied Chile side, …
