Why Are EPL Strikers Out of Fashion This Season?

Why Are EPL Strikers Out of Fashion This Season?

Strikers. The  Glamour Boys. The Hansel's and Derek Zoolanders of the football world. The match winners. All hopes of glory rested squarely on their shoulders. Not anymore. Well, this season at least. This EPL season has seen a dramatic decrease in striker influence. Midfielders are now the main outlet for goals. Heck, even defenders are chipping away at their trade. Their relevance in the overall scheme of things will never fully diminish, but somehow managers in the EPL this season are …
Liverpool's Squad Depth the secret to Success

Liverpool's Squad Depth the secret to Success

Squad Depth. It’s how you win things. The luxury of having a large squad filled with enough quality to compete on many fronts… every manager's dream. That is a luxury that has not always been afforded to Liverpool managers in the recent past. Never-mind the squad as a whole; just the subs bench alone would leave much to be desired. The bench is an asset, often providing the manager with an inventory of options to change the outcome of a game …
Liverpool vs Manchester United - Key Battles

Liverpool vs Manchester United - Key Battles

The big night draws ever closer. Battle lines have been drawn. The two most successful teams in English football clash on Monday Night… And what a clash it will be.

Bench Warmers to Benchmarks: The EPL's Unlikely Heroes in 2016/17

This seems to be the Chinese year of the underdog. No, not the team of underdogs, THAT title belonged to Leicester City last season. This is redemption hour for the previously isolated, regularly ridiculed individuals; Fringe players who seldom grab the headlines for the right reasons and often grabbed them for the wrong ones.  The tables have turned. Yep, the unlikeliest of heroes are stepping up. Maybe it’s just a case of managers using their star man as decoys to throw opposition managers off, but …
Leicester City request restart to EPL Season

Leicester City request restart to EPL Season

Leicester City have requested that the current EPL season be restarted. Claudio Ranieri cited external factors as the main reason for a vastly indifferent start to this season. Ranieri : “Jamie Vardy’s chewing tobacco is stuck in a port somewhere in Spain, and our good luck Pizza cutter has been missing since THAT party last season.” He went on further saying that his players initially thought that N'golo Kanté had taken it with him to Chelsea but they aren’t winning either …
Saving The Saviour - The Star Men

Saving The Saviour - The Star Men

He is “The Main Man.” The one that everyone looks to, in times of need. The one everyone trusts to be the difference between winning and losing. Every top team has (at least) one, every lower level team relies desperately on one to beat the drop. He is the Neo in the Matrix of the football world. Modern day managers have the unenviable [Morpheus] task of finding/buying/developing “the One.” The Pros -  These type of players are often called upon …
