Respect for the FA Cup must start with the FA

Rumours of proposed changes to the FA Cup began to surface this week with talk of replays being scrapped and the League Cup semi-final also going to a one-off match, rather than the current two-legged affair, all in the name of reducing fixture congestion. Inevitably, talk of change to domestic cup competitions invokes talk of respecting the cup and rose-tinted romanticism. In a recent interview, Football Association Chief Executive Martin Glenn admitted he’d love to see the FA Cup winners …
The battle for Premier League survival is hotting up

The battle for Premier League survival is hotting up

The main focus of the Premier League this weekend has primarily been the fight between all the teams in the top four, in the race for the Premier League title. Whilst the openness at the top makes for an interesting run-in to the end of the campaign, the competition at the other end of the table is just as intense, where the battle to avoid relegation really is hotting up.

Liverpool vs Sunderland Preview | Team News, Stats and Key Men

Liverpool’s hopes of grabbing a European spot seem to be getting thinner with every passing match-day. Their latest loss to Leicester has put the club 11 points away from the fourth placed Arsenal and with just 14 games left this season, Klopp’s men will need to pull a bunny out of the hat to be involved in Champions League in the coming season. The Reds host relegation threatened Sunderland on Matchday 25 of the Premier League in a crucial tie they …
Sunderland Make Manchester City Sweat

Sunderland Make Manchester City Sweat

The big news of Pep Guardiola's imminent arrival at Manchester City seems to have had an indifferent impact on City's team. Sunderland are quite obdurate opponents and Sam Allardyce, as one would expect, has drilled it in to the Black Cats that home form is crucial if they are to survive in the Premier League. The match was quite fitful never really hitting any form of fluency. Pellegrini chose Jesus Navas's extra width and pace and it was Navas's deflected …

The Second Team Soft Spot

The Second Team Soft Spot

Second team: what do you mean you have a second team that you have a soft spot for? You're a Liverpool fan, you're not allowed support a second team and if you do sod off and support them and leave supporting Liverpool to the real fans. This is an argument I've had with several Liverpool fans over past eighteen or so months on Twitter, sorry it's a synopsis of an argument I have had with Liverpool fans over the past …
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. Especially in England, money is always the key. 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. …
