Why Manchester United should sign Sergio Ramos

Why Manchester United should sign Sergio Ramos

Sergio Ramos has been linked to the Premier League for over a decade. This summer, he will be available as a free agent, due to his failure to agree terms on a new contract with Real Madrid. The appeal of a move is obvious on the surface. The Spanish international is available on a free transfer, which removes the sizeable obstacle of agreeing a transfer fee out of the equation. However, he is now 35-year-old and he played just 20 …
Harry Kane - White Hart Lane or Leave

Harry Kane - White Hart Lane or Leave

It’s tricky to judge some footballers peak and the best league to suit them, as they near the once dreaded 30 years of age mark. The longevity of players can only be determined when performances begin to wane. Where Harry Kane has cemented himself as a Tottenham Hotspur legend, he may now look upon these final peak years as crucial to personal gain, even after such a strong personal season. With no winners medals to match his undoubted ability, this …
Ole - What for Next Season

Ole - What for Next Season

This season, this season of COVID-19, will be remembered for years to come. No fans, all games on some format or another, and the infamous failed Super League. For any pretender to the Premier League throne, this was the season that could be taken advantage of. Where Leicester had once shocked the world, a little less of a dramatic win, could have seen Ole return to English League crown to Old Trafford. What began as a temporary fix (after many …

Analysing why Chelsea’s Reece James must go to the Euros

Reece James was one of the standout players during Chelsea’s Champions League final defeat of Manchester City. N’Golo Kante and Kai Havertz rightly stole the headlines, but their young English team-mate wasn’t far behind them on the night. During a week filled with speculation about the England right back position, James put his marker down on Saturday night. It will be hard for Gareth Southgate to now leave him out of the final 26. In the first half, James twice …
The Structure of Elite Teams

The Structure of Elite Teams

To finish 3rd in any given Premier League season is some feat. For Liverpool FC to have had so many injures, players missing the majority of the season & others forced into roles unfamiliar, is even more so commendable. When COVID-19 hit the UK some 16 months ago, Liverpool sat at the top table as arguably the greatest team on the planet. Fast forward to now, and the seasons close has resulted in sheer relief at achieving a top 4 …

Analysing Joe Willock's loan spell with Newcastle United

Joe Willock has been one of the success stories of the second half of the season. Arsenal opted to loan him and Ainsley Maitland-Niles out to teams in the relegation battle. It has been the one sent to Newcastle United that has led his team to safety and he has been the standout player for them during their recent upturn in form. There will be a lot of speculation about his future and this will only increase in the coming …
Nat Phillips - Stick or Twist

Nat Phillips - Stick or Twist

Nathaniel Phillips, the towering central defender who has been thrust into the Liverpool limelight this year, is becoming quite the cult hero at Anfield. The Bolton born defender has had a more than respectable season, and the end will no doubt bring the choice of whether to stay, or leave the mighty reds. It’s a strange season where Virgil Van Dijk & Joe Gomez have missed much of the year through long term injury, with Joel Matip seemingly always hurt. …
The Resurrection of David Moyes

The Resurrection of David Moyes

David Moyes, the current West Ham manager, is having the season of his life. After being dismissed (only to be reinstated later, for his second stint), he could now achieve the Premier League manager of the year award. This season represents a remarkable turnaround for the man that was was written off as a Premier League manager, a level that he was no longer suited for. His failures and short comings left little doubt that he was no longer the …
