David Luiz, Alex or both for Chelsea?

David Luiz, Alex or both for Chelsea?

Before the start of the season the talk has mainly been about Sneijder, Pastore, Lukaku and the like for Chelsea, attacking players that should plug a lack of creativity that has been evident over the last season however there is one question that has been seemingly forgotten. What’s our best centre back partnership? As John Terry is our captain it’s a safe bet that he is going to be one of the two centre backs and as Branislav Ivanovic is …
Everton Scores In Midfield

Everton Scores In Midfield

Everton's seasons have come to rest on the edge of a blade.  With Tim Howard, Phil Jagielka and Co. securing the rearguard to the tune of just 190 goals allowed over the past 5 EPL seasons (that is just 38 goals allowed per season), Everton have the defense upon which to build a top four assault.  However, Everton has finished in the top 5 places in the table just twice in that time, have not finished top 4 once and …
Clichy leaves gap at left back for Arsenal

Clichy leaves gap at left back for Arsenal

Arsene Wenger is not known for big spending during transfer windows. That is evident again this summer, with Gervinho the only big money signing so far in the summer months. As always, there are rumors of other targets joining the club including Juan Manuel Mata and a few Premier League center backs, but the losses for the club might outweigh anything brought in this off-season. The ongoing Cesc saga still lingers and the Nasri situation might not bode well for …
The decreasing influence of Lampard

The decreasing influence of Lampard

Frank Lampard over the years has been an ever-present in the Chelsea side, scoring goals consistently and being a main attacking force in the Chelsea attack, however last season with his injury as well as his increasing age his influence has been decreasing for a while, he never really relied on pace and it showed in the previous season when our midfield was pedestrian. As well as being pedestrian there was a lack of creativity in midfield, Frank although an …

It's 2 from 6 for Lambert up top

[caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="468" caption="Steve Morison"][/caption] Following the summer arrival of James Vaughan and Steve Morison City boss Paul Lambert has eight, yes eight strikers to choose from - Vaughan, Morison, Grant Holt, Simeon Jackson, Chris Martin, Aaron Wilbraham, Oli Johnson and Cody McDonald. It's likely that Lambert will go with either one or two up top for most matches, but which is the pairing most likely to do the business and keep the Canaries in the top-flight? With the …
Gareth Bale - Worth the hype?

Gareth Bale - Worth the hype?

After two inspired performances against the then European Champions, Gareth Bale's praise soared through the roof. Two top quality performances against Inter Milan in the group stage of the Champions League threw him into a shower of admiration from the country's press and pundits alike. The first game, Inter had completely dominated Tottenham and were 4-0 up at half time. It could be said that they too their foot off the gas in the second half but Bale's hat trick with the …
Wingers | The wide men of the EPL

Wingers | The wide men of the EPL

Stewart Downing and Ashley Young netted Aston Villa a total of £35million. Nani proved that he was an able replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo. Matthew Etherington rediscovered his form of old. Chris Brunt shone in an average West Brom side. And David Silva showed that the £21million price tag was well justified. It was a great year for wingers from a fans point of view, but what do the stats say? Are they really justifying the price tags? At Villa, the …
Who other than Adel? QPR's Dilemma

Who other than Adel? QPR's Dilemma

[caption id="attachment_999" align="alignright" width="220" caption="Adel Taarabt - Star Player"][/caption] It seemed for almost the entire summer and for weeks before that as Queens Park Rangers surged towards the Championship and more importantly the Premier League that Adel Taarabt would not be there to guide them into the unknown. The often fantastic but infuriating midfielder at times appeared to on his own destroy opponents with skills beyond the division he played in. However with the news of Taarabt’s departure seemingly put …
