Could Julian Draxler be a fit for Arsenal?

Could Julian Draxler be a fit for Arsenal?

Ever since the German attacking midfielder burst onto the scene with Schalke, there have been links to the Gunners, with Arsene Wenger a known admirer of him. In his early career in Gelsenkirchen, he caught the attention of many of Europe’s elite and looked to be destined for greatness. None of the top clubs followed through a move for him and his career stalled …
The Premier League Influence for Germany at Euro 2016

The Premier League Influence for Germany at Euro 2016

Reigning world champions Germany will understandably be amongst many people’s pre-tournament favourites for this summers’ Euros. Despite them often underperforming in friendlies and even flattering to deceive at times in qualifying, it’s tournament football where they really come alive. The Bundesliga is now recognised as a breeding ground for talent and the place where most of the squad play their football, but the Premier League is also represented and here I look at what the English-based contingent could play for …
The Malaise at Chelsea

The Malaise at Chelsea

There seems to be little rhyme or reason to Jose Mourinho's decision making thus far. A team overly reliant upon the jaw dropping excellence of Eden Hazard last season has been relegated to mid-table mediocrity. Some analysts point to a third season syndrome suggesting Jose's teams at Chelsea (first time) and Real Madrid all struggled in their 3rd season. What is apparent is that players appear to be playing within themselves. It can be no coincidence Eden Hazard has 3 …

Top 5 Signings of the 13-14 EPL Season | Ozil, Schurrle, Eriksen, Bony & Fernandinho

Which Three Attacking Midfielders Should Start For Chelsea? | Stats

Which Three Attacking Midfielders Should Start For Chelsea? | Stats

Many thought Chelsea bought too many attacking midfielders in the summer, given that Juan Mata, Eden Hazard and Oscar were all already at the club, but the side relies upon their array of number tens. Jose Mourinho expects his three creative midfielders to work hard in both halves of the pitch and it was Mata's failure to do the hard yards that cost him his place in the side. The likes of Willian, Andre Schurrle and Mohamed Salah have all …
