Battle To Be England's Future Striker Heats Up

Battle To Be England's Future Striker Heats Up

Never before has England's national team had such an abundance of strikers to choose from as they do now. England are one of only three nations to win all four of their Euro 2016 qualifiers this year, with Czech Republic and Slovakia for company. With this being the case, it can be argued that England are the only highly seeded country to be doing their ranking any justice, with nations like Netherlands, Belgium and Russia all slipping up early on. …
Chelsea In Deep Trouble Without Matic

Chelsea In Deep Trouble Without Matic

Nemanja Matic will miss this weekend's Capital One Cup Final through suspension after seeing red last Saturday during Chelsea's 1-1 draw with Burnley. Chelsea have since lodged an appeal with the Football Association, but success in doing so would only mean that the player's suspension will be reduced and not rescinded, thus truly confirming that the Serb will miss the final at least. In the wake of Saturday's events, Atkinson has been rested for this weekend's upcoming Premier League matches …
James Milner - The Modern Day Beckham?

James Milner - The Modern Day Beckham?

A lot has been made of the absence of Yaya Toure since he went to away on international duty with Ivory Coast and won the African Cup of Nations. The Citizens were without a home win since April 2014 when fielding a team without their star Ivorian, and staggeringly without a win away from home since a 2-0 win at the Emirates back in January 2013! The Man City faithful had good reason to be worried, then, as they watched …
The Rise And Fall Of Robin van Persie

The Rise And Fall Of Robin van Persie

Two main talking points arose from an interview with Robin van Persie earlier this week; he admitted that he wasn't happy with his form, and that he was unsure of his future. The Dutchman has scored only 8 goals this season for the Reds, and with a return like that, you have to say that he could be right to be worried! Van Persie arrived in the Premier League in May 2004 after growing unhappy at Feyenoord and an ever …
Kevin Mirallas - Why Everton Must Keep The Greedy Belgian

Kevin Mirallas - Why Everton Must Keep The Greedy Belgian

Sylvester Stallone was famously in attendance at Goodison on Monday night for filming of the new Rocky film, but an event during the match somehow manage to overawe such an occasion. Kevin Mirallas seemingly went against team-orders in their 0-0 draw with West Brom after he took (and missed) a penalty that would have sent them into a much-needed half time lead. Once referee Michael Oliver had pointed to the spot for a correct hand-ball decision against former Toffee, Joleon …
Sanchez vs Aguero: Record Breakers Go Head-to-Head Once Again

Sanchez vs Aguero: Record Breakers Go Head-to-Head Once Again

The Premier League's two most influential players go head-to-head once again on Sunday as the Gunners travel to Manchester where hosts City will be looking to at least maintain the narrow two-point gap to league leaders Chelsea. It will come as no surprise to many Premier League supporters to hear that Sergio Aguero is currently in the top 2 most influential players in the league this season, so far scoring or assisting in 17 of Manchester City's league goals, after having …
Santi Claus - Cazorla at His Best Over Christmas Period?

Santi Claus - Cazorla at His Best Over Christmas Period?

The season began with a lot of uncertainty over game time for Santi Cazorla; the arrivals of Alexis Sanchez and Danny Welbeck, along with attacking players like Walcott, Podolski, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ramsey, Ozil, Wilshere and World Cup star Joel Campbell giving good reason to believe that Cazorla's days on the team sheet may be numbered. This is Cazorla's third season in England after joining Arsenal in the summer of 2012 from Malaga for an undisclosed fee believed to be between £12-15million. …
John Terry - Better With Age?

John Terry - Better With Age?

It has been a bumpy ride for the former England captain, but since the return of 'The Special One' to The Bridge he seems to have found a second-wind. The 34 year old defender scored his 35th Premier League goal in Chelsea's 2-0 win against Stoke at the weekend, making that 15 consecutive seasons that he has netted in the competition. With that goal, he now sits only 3 goals behind David Unsworth on the list of the top goalscoring Premier …
