Wolves' Portuguese Revolution Continues in 2018

Wolves' Portuguese Revolution Continues in 2018

Not many things are certain in English football. Maybe the bagful of goals that Harry Kane will score each season, or the several hugs that Jurgen Klopp will dole out to his players and staff, or even the number of rants Jose Mourinho will launch into every season, are predictable but not much else is. Who will win the Premier League or who will get relegated or who will win the Championship? In most seasons, fans have to wait for …
Wolves vs Chelsea Preview | FA Cup Fourth Round

Wolves vs Chelsea Preview | FA Cup Fourth Round

Wolves are hoping to cause an upset when they take on the Premier League leaders in Saturday's FA Cup fourth round clash against Chelsea.
A place in the quarter-final is up for grabs and both teams are unlikely to take the game lightly despite Chelsea's title chase. With an eight-point lead in the Premier League table, Chelsea can concentrate fully on the FA Cup competition too and will be desperate to add further silverware to their cabinet. Wolves …

Liverpool vs Wolves Preview | FA Cup 4th Round

Liverpool will be hoping to bounce back from their disappointing defeat against Southampton in the EFL Cup semi-final when they return to FA Cup action on Saturday. Jurgen Klopp's men have been pretty poor so far this year after taking the Premier League by storm in the opening months of the season. The manager is under some pressure and some (ludicrous) fans went as far as suggesting he was due the sack! It's extremely unlikely that will happen any time …

Can You Name The Football Ground Quiz?

The old iconic stadiums have slowly been replaced by state of the art architecture with plenty of focus on the hospitality packages for the corporate side of the game.

Football Fans and the Chip On Their Shoulder

Football Fans and the Chip On Their Shoulder

In wake of recent reports that West Ham are considering not extending Sam Allardyce’s contract beyond the summer, I began to think about the fickle nature of the football fan. Fans of football teams generally have high expectations for their clubs, but it is becoming apparent that some have extreme delusions of grandeur. I am using West Ham as an example for now as it contextually relevant, but it is clear they are not the only culprits. So I bought …

Fantasy Stats Blog: Could Messi Have Saved QPR's Season?

[caption id="attachment_35493" align="alignright" width="294"] Nice suit[/caption] Back in January I wrote a hypothetical article contemplating where Hull City would be if they had signed Pele (original article here).  As I'm now getting bored waiting for the new season to start, I thought i'd have some fun and see what might have happened if QPR had signed the best player in the world, Lionel Messi. So here's how it works: Messi scored a goal every 57 minutes in the Spanish League …

The Premier League Shockers - How common are the shocking upsets?

[quote]Football is an incredible game. Sometimes it's so incredible, it's unbelievable. - Tom Landry[/quote] Ok, so Landry was talking about the 'other' type of football, however the sentiment remains true for 'real' football.  One of the most beautiful things about the beautiful game is the potential for a freak, unexpected result.  An incredible, unbelievable result. There's nothing that neutral football fans enjoy more than seeing an underdog grabbing a win against the odds.  So how often does it happen?  And …

Promoted to the Premier League. Job done? | Stats Analysis

"We are Premier League, we are Premier League" Being a Hull City fan, I heard this a lot over the weekend.  A lot!  And I loved every single chant of it. The incredible roller coaster ride that was the final day of the Championship season has been very well covered (Amber Nectar and From Boothferry to Wembley are two of my personal favourites), but now Cardiff City and Hull City have reached the Holy Grail and can start planning for a successful …
