Where are the Premier League's world class strikers?

Where are the Premier League's world class strikers?

It seems a very long time ago since Arsenal fans witnessed their emphatic strike partnership of Theirry Henry and Dennis Bergkamp ripping up the Premier League every week. The same generation were able to appreciate Manchester United’s attackers in all their glory – from Cristiano Ronaldo to Ruud Van Nisterooy. Even in recent seasons, ex Liverpool striker Luis Suarez, brought more quality to the Premier League as Chelsea waved goodbye to their long-serving Ivory Coast international, Didier Drogba. This season, …
A New Breed of Brazilian Footballers in the Premier League

A New Breed of Brazilian Footballers in the Premier League

Football is a sacred religion in Brazil. Children are brought up to love the game, play the game with passion and produce entertaining skills that will one day light up the world stage. For decades, the South Americans have produced some of the greatest footballers. Players like Rivaldo, Ronaldo, Kaka, Romario and Ronaldinho have all been named FIFA Player of the Year since 1991 and the latest superstar, Barcelona’s forward, Neymar, came third in this year’s Ballon D’or awards. All …
What would the Capital One Cup mean for Liverpool?

What would the Capital One Cup mean for Liverpool?

On Sunday, Manchester City and Liverpool go head-to-head in the Capital One Cup final as both teams hope to earn their first trophies of the campaign. For Pellegrini’s side, it could be the start of their attempt to claim a domestic double as they still fight for the Premier League title as well as progression in the Champions League. Jurgen Klopp could claim his first trophy since moving to England and would certainly make his first season a success despite …
Can Manchester United cope without Rooney and De Gea?

Can Manchester United cope without Rooney and De Gea?

Recent injuries to Manchester United’s captain and their star keeper have undoubtedly come as a big blow to Louis Van Gaal and his team. David De Gea was forced to leave the pitch before the Reds even started their match against FC Midtjylland in the Europea League due to a knee injury he picked up during the warm-up. Manchester United, who were already without 13 players including Wayne Rooney, produced another disappointing performance on Thursday evening as they lost to …
Toure & Clichy: Arsenal's Remaining Invincibles

Toure & Clichy: Arsenal's Remaining Invincibles

Under Arsene Wenger, the 2003-2004 Arsenal squad grew into one of the greatest the Premier League has ever seen. Nicknamed the ‘Invincibles,’ the team were just that – invincible. During that season, Arsenal became the first club in Premier League history to record an unbeaten campaign – a record which still stands today. Their squad, which included world-class stars such as Thierry Henry, Dennis Bergkamp and Patrick Viera, to name a few, won 7 trophies between 2000 and 2005, including …
England’s Forgotten Injured Stars: Daniel Sturridge

England’s Forgotten Injured Stars: Daniel Sturridge

Sturridge’s partnership with Luis Suarez, during the 2013-14 season, lit up the Premier League and boosted Liverpool into their greatest title chase since the turn of the Millennium. However, since that season, Sturridge has spent more games on the side-lines than the number of goals he’s scored for Liverpool (after joining in January 2013). His goal-scoring record is impressive; the striker has netted 37 times in 60 league appearances for the Reds and has notched up a further 7 goals …
Are English Clubs Forgetting Their Academies?

Are English Clubs Forgetting Their Academies?

Pep Guardiola’s appointment at Manchester City hopes to reinvigorate their newly invested academy system. Pep, whose time at Barcelona and Bayern Munich has given him the recognition as one of the best managers in the world, is renowned for turning his sides into possession-heavy teams that encourage flair and creativity on the ball. He’s known for building his own teams, and although his squads have never been short of talent, he’s built a reputation for coaching ‘perfect football.’ Manchester City …
England's Forgotten Injured Stars: Danny Ings

England's Forgotten Injured Stars: Danny Ings

The ex-Burnley striker completed a move to Liverpool on the 8th June 2015 after a successful spell with the relegated northern side. His partnership with Sam Vokes at Burnley was emphatic and the two were crucial to the Clarets' rise to the Premier League. The Vokes-Ings partnership was never fully unleashed in the top flight as Danny’s strike partner suffered an ACL injury, the same fateful set-back Ings now suffers with, before Burnley kick-started their Premier League contest. During the 2013-14 …
