Ashley Young Vs Stewart Downing

Ashley Young Vs Stewart Downing

There's no secret to the fact that Manchester United and Liverpool hate each other. The race to sign Ashley Young ended with Young "snubbing" LFC to head to the Red Devils for around £17m.

There has been much debacle amongst LFC fans, Villa fans, and Utd fans alike about which team got the better deal. Using Opta Stats …

Liverpool | Maxi Scoring 7 in 3 Misleading

Maxi Rodriguez joined Liverpool on a free transfer from Atlético Madrid in January of 2010.  Since that time he has featured prominently in a Liverpool side that has failed to meet expectation and dropped out of the top 4 in England, missing the Champions League qualification spots and never threatening a title challenge.

With the new SPL season kicking off last weekend; it seemed like perfect timing to write an article on my first love. Scottish football isn’t very highly seen around Europe, because – well put it this way, since I’ve been born I’ve only seen two clubs win the title.
