The Stoke City Rumour Mill

The Stoke City Rumour Mill

After a quick start to transfer window, with Liverpool and Manchester United making the big moves, things have settled down into a predictable pattern in England – Tevez wanting away, rumours of Drogba going every which way, and Adebayor annoying yet somebody else – or simply not being good enough. Stoke City have had a relatively quiet summer thus far, with their only signing being Jonathon Woodgate on a pay as you play deal from Tottenham, while releasing 3 players …

Things can only get better for Wigan.. right?

Things can only get better for Wigan.. right?

Wigan. Oh dear, what an escape. 19th on the last day of the season, a narrow win at Stoke, along with other results going their way, ensured them EPL football for yet another season in 16th place . To go along with their squeaky bums, Wigan also held the honour for biggest home defeat – 6-0 to Chelsea in the middle of August, and lowest attendance of the season, with only 14,000 showing up to their home game against Wolves. …
Pardew v Hughton | A tale of two halves of a season

Pardew v Hughton | A tale of two halves of a season

It’s been literally a tale of two half seasons for Newcastle’s return to the Premier League, as the first half of the season was steered by Chris Hughton, helped along with the presence and goals of Andy Carroll and a very brief appearance from Hatem Ben Arfa. In December, Hughton was, judged by many, to be unfairly sacked and Alan Pardew was brought in three days after his departure.  He only had Andy Carroll’s services for three games before he …

The Key Stats of the Mackems

The Key Stats of the Mackems

Ally McCoist used to play for Sunderland. Regretting that £185,000 now? A very busy summer for the Mackems so far - Vaughan, O'Shea, Brown, Wickham, Gardner, Larsson and Dong-Won Ji all coming in, with an outlay of around £20million. But are these the players that are needed? Sunderland finished a decent 10th in the league last season, narrowly beating out West Bromwich Albion, and falling 1 point short of Aston Villa in 9th. Finishing with 12 wins, 11 draws and …
Why do Arsenal walk the ball into the net?

Why do Arsenal walk the ball into the net?

'Shhhooooottttt!!' we hear the Arsenal crowd chant. 'These fancy dans are more interested in walking the ball into the back of the net rather than pulling the trigger' say the opposition fans. Pundits on the television sigh as they complain about Arsenal once again trying to score the perfect goal instead of putting the laces through the ball whenever an attacking player is within a 40 yards radius of the opposition goal. These are some of the strokes used to …
Aston Villa | Don't Panic!

Aston Villa | Don't Panic!

The 2011/2012 English Premier League season is being embraced with less enthusiasm than usual for a number of Aston Villa supporters, and the reasons for this are numerous. For the sake of both this article and my sanity, I will be concentrating on just two of them; Ashley Young, and Stewart Downing. Young’s departure came as no surprise, as contract negotiations between Employer and Employee had been stalling for the preceding 12 months.  The inevitable finally happened on 23 June, when …
