The Good, The Bad and The Ugly of Matchweek 6

Another week, another big VAR controversy involving Liverpool, another Everton red card and lots more talking points to boot. This Premier League season is easily the most unpredictable in recent years and while this weekend didn't produce any outlandish results, such as the league Champions getting beaten 7-2, Manchester City losing 5-1 or their neighbours United shipping 6 at home, it still through up some surprises. The only two teams in the league who went into the weekend unbeaten both …

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly of Matchweek 5

Another week of Premier League football is in the books, and controversy reigned supreme this time around. The Merseyside Derby, always a pretty heated affair, contained a number of flashpoints that caused social media to explode. Elsewhere Manchester United got back to winning ways, whilst Newcastle and Crystal Palace managed to turn in a couple of the least ambitious performances you will see all season. With all that in mind, here's the good, the bad and ugly of matchweek five. …

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly of Matchweek 4

Is this the craziest start to a Premier League season that we've ever seen? Is there any way to correctly predict results? Teams can look great one week, and then abysmal the next. No matter what game you watch this season, you're pretty much guaranteed excitement and goals. The lack of fans is taking a lot of pressure off players and we're seeing them try things they might not normally attempt if there were fans in the stands. With the …

"Big 6" Youngsters in Need of a Loan This Summer.

The end of the transfer window is drawing close and some teams are scrambling to get deals done. Fans of all Premier League clubs will be hoping for their team to do something more between now and 5pm on Monday, regardless of what they've done already. There's something intoxicating about a deadline day signing, regardless of what age you are and who you support. The Premier League is very much an arms race. The "Big 6" compete against each other …

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly of Matchweek 3

Another week in the books, a whole lot of controversy arising from multiple games and some of the worst defending the Premier League has ever seen. This season is shaping up to be very interesting for a number of reasons, not least of them the fact that Leicester, Everton and Aston Villa currently sit in the top four alongside Liverpool. Only Leicester and the Merseyside clubs have won three from three, with Villa sitting on two wins from two. Those …
What Should Chelsea Do With Kepa?

What Should Chelsea Do With Kepa?

When Chelsea decided, in the summer of 2018, to pay a world record fee for a goalkeeper in order to secure the services of Kepa Arrizabalaga from Athletic Bilbao, the move was met with skepticism. Kepa, aged 24 at the time, had just completed his first full season as the first choice keeper for the Basque team. He was being asked to join one of Europe's top clubs, and replace one of Europe's top goalkeepers after Thibaut Courtois had forced …

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly of Matchweek 2

With two matchweeks now complete, there's a couple of things we can say for certain. Firstly, this is going to be an entertaining season with the vast majority of teams seemingly having decided to not bother defending at all. Secondly, almost every team in the league still needs to make multiple signings. And finally, there will almost certainly be a couple of managers dismissed this side of Christmas. Liverpool and Tottenham entered the weekend with a lot of excitement as …
Opening Game Defeat Highlights Areas of Need For Sheffield United.

Opening Game Defeat Highlights Areas of Need For Sheffield United.

Sheffield United surprised everybody last season by marching into the Premier League, having a look around and deciding that they were a top half team. Truth be told, they were probably a little bit disappointed when the season ended and they found themselves in 9th position. At the start of the 2019/20 season they would have been thrilled at the idea of a top half finish, but as the season developed and they drifted between 5th and 8th, they would …
