Sunderland Vs Newcastle | Who will score?

Sunderland Vs Newcastle | Who will score?

This weekend will see the first North East derby of the season between Newcastle United and Sunderland and both teams will go into it feeling confident after credible draws against potential top4 sides. Sunderland went away to Liverpool and after a first half battering and surviving a missed penalty, a possible red card and a dubiously disallowed goal came back strongly in the second half and were good value for the point they came away with. Newcastle United played out …

Newcastle: The "not so" smooth transition from football club to business

The fact that football clubs across the UK are now being ran more and more as businesses is not entirely popular with football fans. There is often a gulf between what the football club can afford to do and what the loyal fan would like them to do and over the next couple of years that gulf is likely to grow. My team is Newcastle United, and has been since I attended Kevin Keegan's first debut as as a player …
Bolton v Man City | Winger Comparison

Bolton v Man City | Winger Comparison

We may be just a single game into the 2011/12 season yet this has not stopped some billing Sunday's clash at The Reebox as a 'top of the table' one. Both Bolton and Manchester City are of course perched first and second in the table by virtue of impressive 4-0 victories over promoted sides QPR and Swansea respectively, and will go into the game full of confidence. Historically, City have not fared well at the Reebok, at times struggling for goals, …
Fabregas | Farewell, El Capitan

Fabregas | Farewell, El Capitan

When I went to bed Sunday night I was planning on spending this evening writing about the 2011-12 EPL season outlook using my input to the Transfer Price Index's season predictions.  I thought I had come to terms with the departure of of Cesc Fabregas over the summer, and certainly in the last week as it became abundantly clear that Barcelona were going to have their man no matter what.  All of that changed on Monday morning, as I woke to …
Sunderland v Newcastle | Preview

Sunderland v Newcastle | Preview

It’s the fixture that all Newcastle and Sunderland fans look for as soon as the fixtures are announced and it’s the one fixture that the fans are excited about, yet fear and dread of the thought of losing to the enemy. Last season, we drew 1-1 at the Stadium of Light, with Gyan scoring a late equaliser to cancel out Kevin Nolan’s opening goal.  Back in October, Sunderland endured a Halloween nightmare at St James’ Park – suffering a 5-1 …
Samir Nasri | A Punt Worth Taking?

Samir Nasri | A Punt Worth Taking?

So it would appear Samir Nasri is on the verge of leaving Arsenal Football Club. Once adored by the gooners far and wide but now something of a hate figure amongst supporters, due to a change of heart (AKA greed) during contract talks. Does it concern me that we are losing another first team player? Yes it does. Does it makes us weaker? In the short term, yes but he is easily replaceable. It has been a very topical point …
Sergio Aguero | Real Deal or Big Mistake?

Sergio Aguero | Real Deal or Big Mistake?

There are no questions that Sergio Aguero impressed in his 31minute debut for Manchester City in their 4-0 thumping of Swansea City, but is Sergio Aguero the real deal or is he just another move that will end up costing City more than they want. Sergio Aguero came in from Atletico Madrid in a deal worth nearly £40M in August of this year. Aguero made an instant impression in the City media making a statement in the Tevez drama, stating …
Swansea | Harsh reality or harsh result?

Swansea | Harsh reality or harsh result?

Swansea City’s opening game in their long anticipated Premier League debut didn’t exactly go to plan, with a 4-0 defeat away to Roberto Mancini’s Manchester City on Monday night at the newly named Etihad Stadium. A defeat which on paper and to many looked like a ‘hammering’ for the Swans, but in fact the score-line was harsh on Swansea, for whom at times looked like Premier League veterans, who played teams like Manchester City week in week out. Of course …
