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 …
January Transfer Window - Midway Review

January Transfer Window - Midway Review

This January transfer window hasn’t been particularly busy. Smaller sides are bringing in squad players while the Big Six (or so) are taking their precious time.

But January, as we’ve seen, requires a higher price to pry the world’s best and most promising away from clubs who need them for the remainder of the season. While the window has been rather dead so far, that doesn’t mean that deals haven’t been made. …

The former Arsenal man and current Villa boss has taken up one of the hardest jobs in English football now, in the hot seat to ensure Premier League survival for the Birmingham-based club. The Villains are on a record 14-game run without a win and as dubious as it seems to be, they will go into this game …

The Benteke Conundrum - Does He Fit?

Christian Benteke's arrival was met in similar fashion to that of Moses as he made his way to the Red Sea. In this instance though it was the fan's opinion of the player that was parted. Liverpool fans rarely see eye to eye on a player but the signing of the Aston Villa hitman really had people clambering to give a side their support. On one side you had those blinded by goals, a necessity in the Premier League that …
