The growth of Ramires for Chelsea

The growth of Ramires for Chelsea

Ramires is a player who when initially coming to Chelsea came under a lot of criticism, he seemed lightweight, some described him as a ‘headless chicken’, however his vast improvement in the second half of the season has continued in to this, he arguably looks like our best midfielder at the start of the season, he’s a good tackler of the ball and he makes some remarkable runs on the counter attack, this season the best example of that is …
Leighton Baines v Ashley Cole

Leighton Baines v Ashley Cole

Currently, the English national side seem to be undergoing a transitional phase before embarking on Euro 2012. Frank Lampard, despite playing against Wales,  appears to have moved to the periphery of  Fabio Capello's thinking, and many other established internationals, such as John Terry and Rio Ferdinand, are beginning to find their own selection far more scrutinised. With the likes of Chris Smalling, Phil Jones, Danny Welbeck, Jack Wilshere and Andy Carroll all coming through, the 2010 World Cup may have finally marked …

Fellaini | Big Hair, Bigger Expectations

Marouane Fellaini has a wonderful head of hair. Unfortunately for so skilled a player, the Belgian international has been known more for his over-sized afro than his play on the field.   In an international break that has seen Everton's already thin side further weakened with Joseph Yobo departing for Turkey on loan and injuries to both Leighton Baines and Victor Anichebe we could all use a laugh so we invite you to enjoy these images while reviewing Fellaini's Everton …

Stephen Ward ensures he's not left behind

Since Wolves won the Championship in 2009 it’s been evident that reinforcements have been required to bolster the back four to cope with the relentless pressures of a Premier League that doesn’t take pity on repeated nervy and panicky defensive blunders. On numerous occasions last season, points were thrown away due to such errors but with two clean sheets from three league games this season, things appear to be on the up. New signing Roger Johnson’s flourishing partnership with Christophe …

Meireles | Where does he fit in at Chelsea?

Optimism around Wolverhampton

Optimism around Wolverhampton

A dull 0-0 draw at West Midlands rivals Aston Villa in the lunchtime kick off on Saturday saw Wolves enjoy their second stint at the top of the Premier League in two weeks. This doesn't suggest that Wanderers will be challenging for the title come the end of the season, however it does show that Mick McCarthy's men can be hopeful of a little more than staying up by a point on the last day again. An unchanged side for …
Wasted Chances Costs Fulham Again

Wasted Chances Costs Fulham Again

As Fulham headed to St. James’s Park on Sunday, Whites’ supporters were hopeful the club could get their first win on the table before the end of August. The match started quite well for us, with some decent possession but no clear-cut chances. A quarter of an hour before the half-time interval,the momentum began to swing in the favour of the hosts, with Yohan Cabaye forcing a save from Mark Schwarzer, which certainly set them up well to take control …
