City Stutter to Win against Swansea

City Stutter to Win against Swansea

Swansea arrived at the Etihad managerless after the sacking of Garry Monk, and the interim manager Alan Curtis made numerous changes. City chose to rest De Bruyne pairing Silva Navas and Sterling ahead of Toure and Ferdandhino. Bony gave City the lead fed by Jesus Navas in the 23rd minute. Pellegrini restoring Silva knows Silva will be key to the run in and was very fortunate that Joe Hart was in top form. City have an abundance of talent but …
Can Gary Neville Succeed at Valencia?

Can Gary Neville Succeed at Valencia?

Valencia are the fifth most successful Spanish club of all time, leading the line are Real Madrid, followed by Barcelona, followed by Athletico Bilbao, then comes Athletico Madrid and then Valencia in terms of trophies won. Gary Neville being announced as manager (initially on a 5 month contract) till the end of the season, has not met with universal acclaim.

Man City Evolve to Beat Saints

Man City Evolve to Beat Saints

Pellegrini has shown Mourinho something in these last four months, he has a far greater trust in youth. Sterling, De Bruyne and Delph all sub-24 yrs old have been trusted to deliver. Arguably Southampton are one of the better drilled, more obdurate teams to beat with 3 clean sheets from ten games, and yet Pellegrini trusted the triumvirate of Sterling, De Bruyne and Delph to engineer a win. Southampton were unbeaten away from home so it was brave not to …
Premier League Unsung XI

Premier League Unsung XI

Traditionally forwards grab the headlines, and combustible suave midfielders in the vein of Gerrard or Scholes or Giggs are the second tier of popularity amongst fans. However there has been a huge wave of "Unsung Heroes" contributing to their teams Premier League success this year. I've made an XI with a player from all 20 clubs (with an extended Subs bench of 9 players). Manager wise I have opted for Mauricio Pochettino, pretty unsung, under the radar for his 18 …
Football's One Club Men

Football's One Club Men

Ronaldo made a comment in his Jonathan Ross interview (plugging his film) that "he would have more dignity than end his career in the U.S. or the Middle East." Even players you would once have considered stalwart, one-club men like Steven Gerrard (504 appearances for Liverpool) and Raul (550 appearances for Real Madrid) are ending their careers in this way; either as a last pay off or for the love of playing on. Their motives may be mixed. Iker Cassillas …
Arsenal Stumble at The Hawthorns

Arsenal Stumble at The Hawthorns

Arsene Wenger alluded to Arsenal's problem in his post match interview by saying, "We were too comfortable at 1-0 up in the 35th minute and then in the 45th minute we were 2-1 down." After Giroud scored a glancing header from an Ozil free kick in the 28th minute Arsenal were nonchalant with no real urgency for a second. Admittedly, they had been disrupted by injury withFrancis Coquellin suffering a seemingly serious knee injury in the 14th minute. He was …
The Enigmatic Erik Lamela

The Enigmatic Erik Lamela

Erik Lamela is probably the last man standing from the £86m spent out of the money received from Gareth Bale (along with Eriksen.) He goes from the sublime and ridiculous to being somewhat anonymous in his 2.5 years at White Hart Lane. His Rabona goal vs Asteras Triplois in the Europa League game at WHL is one of the most outstanding goals of recent times. He scored a similar stunning Rabona in his River Plate days. Even his critics will …
