Manchester United - Alarming Signs Already?

Manchester United - Alarming Signs Already?

Demolition Derby. A game that one of the Manchester sides would rather forget. A Manchester derby even more disastrous and miraculous than that 1-6 drubbing. This one comes as a second major defeat to the 'noisy' neighbours in the space of two years. Thankfully, away from home this time. A rampant Manchester city side beat a team that looked totally out of place and disinterested, ever so comprehensively (4-1) on a warm Sunday afternoon. Where did it all go wrong …
Arsene Wenger | Still is the Right Man for Arsenal

Arsene Wenger | Still is the Right Man for Arsenal

16 years. 16 consecutive years of Champions League qualification, with little-to-no spending, is what the pro-Wenger section of  supporters throw at you when questioned about the ambition and desire of current and long-standing Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger. The glory days of Arsenal are well and truly behind them now and the club hasn't added any domestic or continental  silverware to its trophy cabinet for the last eight years, a cabinet that looks pretty deserted at the moment. But the signing of …
Southampton and their English Core

Southampton and their English Core

Alan Shearer. Matthew Le Tissier. Mick Channon. What do these legendary players have in common? All three started their careers at Southampton Football Club and consequently went on to play for their national side, England. More recently, the renowned Saints academy has produced talented internationals such as world record signing Gareth Bale, Arsenal's Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. And all these players stood out from the rest at Southampton before making big-money moves to North London outfits Tottenham and Arsenal …
Manchester United's Ed Not-So-Convincing Woodward

Manchester United's Ed Not-So-Convincing Woodward

The summer began with the names of Gareth Bale, Cristiano Ronaldo, Fabregas, Thiago Alcantara and Luka Modric ricocheting around the walls of Old Trafford. The hyped window came to an unsatisfactory and ordinary end (to many), adding one robust Belgian to our ranks. The familiar Belgian with a weird hairdo. Marouane Fellaini for a fee of 27.5m, 4m of which Fellaini had to part with apparently. So, Ed Woodward. The man behind all the transfer activity for this season and …
Dark Horses of the 2013/14 Season: Swansea, Southampton & Norwich

Dark Horses of the 2013/14 Season: Swansea, Southampton & Norwich

As we all know, the English Premier League is easily the most intense and competitive league when compared to the likes of La Liga, Bundesliga and the Serie A. However, quality-wise, the Premier League is no more the top dog as the German Bundesliga has remarkably evolved, especially last season, alongside the perennial Spanish heavyweights. Nevertheless, when it comes to entertainment and nerve-wrecking finishes at both the ends of the table, the Premier League is head and shoulders above the …
Shinji Kagawa | Time to stand up and deliver | Kagawa Stats

Shinji Kagawa | Time to stand up and deliver | Kagawa Stats

A few months ago, before the Champions League final, Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp expressed his agony at seeing the Japanese ace, ex-Dortmund midfielder Shinji Kagawa play in the left wing at Manchester United for just 20 minutes every game. Though he may have exaggerated a bit, many of the supporters feel the same about Kagawa and the lack of playing time he was given last season. He was signed for a fee of 17.5m on a four-year deal from …
