England's forgotten injured stars: Andy Carroll

England's forgotten injured stars: Andy Carroll

Within the space of two years, Andy Carroll went from being Newcastle United’s top goal-scorer to one of Liverpool’s biggest transfer flops in history. The £35m price tag planted on his head on the final day of the January transfer window was an audacious statement of risk by the Reds after the cashed in on Fernando Torres’ move to Chelsea. It was a risk that never paid off and after a short, but impressive career in the Premier League with …
England's forgotten injured stars: Danny Welbeck

England's forgotten injured stars: Danny Welbeck

Arsenal's front man, Danny Welbeck, hasn't featured for the Gunners since their 0-0 draw against Chelsea back in April 2015. Once a young prospect hailed by Sir Alex Ferguson, Welbeck has been held back in his career - often being sidelined at Manchester United before being shifted off to Arsenal on Louis Van Gaal's arrival. His move to London hasn't quite begun yet either as he's suffered a total of 318 days out of action with several injuries. Welbeck looked …
Managers: The transformation from Europe to England

Managers: The transformation from Europe to England

Some of the world's best managers have tried their hand in the Premier League in recent years and have been swallowed up by its pressures. The Premier League is renowned for its unpredictability and high expectations and for some managers, it's proved too much. The British media are ruthless, the fans are demanding and the league is dramatic - all of which contribute to the rise and fall of the world's managers. Pep Guardiola is the latest 'genius' to put …
The Most Shocking managerial appointments

The Most Shocking managerial appointments

With Jose Mourinho recently getting the sack at Chelsea and rumours surrounding the futures of Van Gaal, Mancini and Wenger, the Premier League could see a whole host of managerial changes. And with talk of Mourinho, the former Chelsea manager, potentially moving to Manchester United, it could be one of the most unexpected employments of recent seasons. Brian Clough's appointment at Leeds United is perhaps the most famously controversial decision of the football age but there's been a fair share …
Louis Van Gaal: A genius behind the struggle

Louis Van Gaal: A genius behind the struggle

Under Louis Van Gaal, Manchester United have struggled to gain consistency and they've failed to make an impact in the league since the Dutchman's arrival. Despite spending around £250 million on transfers, United currently sit out of the top four and the title appears to be out of their reach. Recent calls for the manager's sacking has added a further cloud over what has already been a disappointing season but has Louis Van Gaal's time at Manchester United really been …
The Rise Of Emre Can

The Rise Of Emre Can

Emre Can's development at Liverpool has been a fascinating transition. The German midfielder looks a completely new player under Jurgen Klopp who seems to have given the youngster more responsibility in his Liverpool side compared to the lack of freedom Can had under Brendan Rodgers. However, despite flashes of flair, genius and leadership, Emre Can's quality lies behind a vail of immaturity and the player has a lot of growing still yet to do. Liverpool signed the versatile youngster from …
Romelu Lukaku - Why He'd Make Any Premier League Team

Romelu Lukaku - Why He'd Make Any Premier League Team

It's almost hard to believe that Romelu Lukaku was once an unwanted outcast with Chelsea back in 2012 when he was shipped away on loan to West Brom after making just 15 appearances in all competitions for the Blues. An impressive record of 17 goals in 38 games during his season with West Brom prompted interest from Everton and after another successful loan spell, he signed for the Merseyside club permanently in the summer of 2014. Since his days with …

This year’s FIFA Ballon d’Or celebrated the world’s best footballers and coaches but also highlighted the increasing fall of the Premier League against Europe’s elite leagues.
