The Relegation Battle: Five Weeks Left | Infographics

With only weeks of football left, for the bottom five clubs in the Premier League it has all come down to this. Some have their hopes of survival hanging by a thread - and some slimmer than that - whilst others are looking up the table rather than down. Either way, it looks likely that three of Crystal Palace, Norwich City, Sunderland, Newcastle United and Aston Villa will go down, and they have six or fewer games in which to …
Is Social Media Good for Football?

Is Social Media Good for Football?

Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren closed down his Twitter and Instagram account because of the reputed abuse he was getting from Southampton fans (after Southampton's 3-2 win over Liverpool). Christiano Ronaldo revealed this week he has 200 million followers on social media. The Liverpool owner John W Henry stepped away from his Twitter account between 24th April and 18th November 2015, largely due to the over whelming demands for Brendan Rodgers to be replaced as manager of Liverpool. Numerous football club …
Brexit - Would it be Positive for the England Football Side?

Brexit - Would it be Positive for the England Football Side?

The country is building towards one of the most important referendums in recent history. The political landscape would change significantly if the Brexit campaign is successful and Britain does leave the European Union. An interesting article from the BBC looks into how an EU exit would affect the Premier League and it makes for concerning reading for the those that run the league.

Remi Garde the Fall Guy with Villa on the Precipice

Remi Garde the Fall Guy with Villa on the Precipice

Aston Villa were once a great club and it’s actually quite sad to say ”once” because they have been European champions in my lifetime; I was too young to remember, but it happened. The club drifted in the 1980’s, before flirting with degrees of success for periods during the 1990’s and the late 2000’s under Martin O’Neill. Now though, they are a club more than drifting, they are in danger of spiralling. The departure of Remi Garde as manager this …

Meanwhile Aston Villa are all but relegated, as they sit bottom of the table with just 16 points. This fixture has provided us with some very exciting games over …
The Premier League Needs to Invest in Future Success

The Premier League Needs to Invest in Future Success

As the parent of a 12 year old boy who is a very keen footballer, I’ve been to countless club and school matches over the past seven years. Something I’ve seen all too often from a number of coaches and an even larger percentage of parents and interested parties on the sidelines is an obsession with the result. Whether or not the child’s team wins or loses seems far more important than if they’re enjoying the game and developing. My …

The reaper’s breath can clearly be felt on Villa’s neck as every game moves them closer to the premiership trapdoor. Each game is now a must win as the season draws towards its conclusion and the financial ramification of relegation are more harrowing than ever. Given the state of play at the club; the divide between players, the managers tactics, fans and management, this is a club experiences its own real life hammer house of horrors. It seems every week …
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, …
