Will Vardy Change Anything?

Will Vardy Change Anything?

Jamie Vardy, a £1million buy from Fleetwood Town in the Conference in 2012, is the Premier League's leading goal scorer. That is an astonishing feat and he is one short of Ruud Van Nistelrooy's all time record of scoring in ten consecutive Premier League matches. He had such self belief that he inserted a clause in his contract that he would get a bonus if he played for England when signing for Leicester in 2012. Rarely has a non league …
Manchester United:

Manchester United: "Attack, Attack, Attack"

The recent refrain from the Stretford End to Louis Van Gaal's team is not flattering. Paul Scholes, the most famous luminary has also stated neither he, Ruud Van Nistelroy or Andy Cole would not have enjoyed playing in this United team. "The lack of creativity is boring to watch", he said. Van Gaal's minimum remit is obviously Champions League qualification, with anything above considered a bonus by the owners the Glazers. Van Gaal, by his nature is a pragmatic coach, …

The Art of Creativity

If you listen to most pundits and commentators they will tell you four Strikers are required when you are in 4 competitions; the League, FA Cup, the Capital One Cup and Champions League. However it's noticeable Manuel Pellegrini spent his entire transfer budget of £107m on Kevin DeBruyne and Raheem Sterling - creative midfielders. Man City have so far persevered with 2 recognised strikers in Aguero and Bony. Equally Wenger has persisted with Giroud and Walcott in Danny Welbeck's injury …

The Soul of a Football Club

Watching the class of 92 documentary it was interesting listening to the views of long standing Salford City fans. A number of them interviewed said they were unhappy with the ex-Man Utd players takeover "as it will never be the same." Equally numerous QPR fans say they preferred QPR when the Chrysalis' records founder Chris Wright owned QPR (96-2001) over Briartore / Ecclestone / Fernandes / Bhattia / Mittal, the recent owners over the last 5 years. Mercenary footballers are not …
Assessing Players: Perception is King

Assessing Players: Perception is King

There is a very curious curse in football about which players gets abuse and which do not from their own fans. Aroune Kone at Everton is a classic example, for the previous 2 years he received abuse, 22 appearances in two years after a £6m transfer from Wigan obviously riled the Goodison support (even though he had a serious knee injury). As a player he has 9 in 39 appearances for the Ivory Coast, (in a team dominated by Wilfried …

The Hyperbole of the Premier League

The Hyperbole of the Premier League

There is an innate arrogance about the supporters of the Premier League assuming it is the hardest in the world. However for every Memphis Depay and Pedro, for whom excuses are being meted out about the Premier League being a lot harder than their previous Dutch and Spanish leagues, there is a Dimitri Payet. Payet the £10.7m West Ham midfielder is arguably the most inform midfielder of the Premier League at present and he is playing only his eleventh game …

The £4m Premier League Team

Transfer spending makes or breaks any club. The demise of all the following "once great" clubs can be attributed to transfer spending, Leeds United, Bolton Wanderers, Nottingham Forest, Sheffield Wednesday, QPR, Coventry City, Glasgow Rangers and a host more. Bolton with a £140m debt, rock bottom of the Championship and Leeds (who have sold both their Stadium and their training ground) probably fared the worst. In light of this it is astonishing the following Premier League 11 cost a mere £3,940,000.00. …
