Paul Pogba - An Expensive Investment or an Expensive Mistake?

Paul Pogba - An Expensive Investment or an Expensive Mistake?

It didn’t take Jose Mourinho long enough to assemble a star squad at Manchester United during the transfer season this time around, and it looks like he’s in no mood to stop! Unlike the last couple of seasons, Eric Bailly, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan have already signed up for the Red Devils, and now Paul Pogba would just be the cherry on top. Pogba has won four consecutive league titles in Turin and was part of the team that …
Will Conte Succeed?

Will Conte Succeed?

Andre Pirlo explains in his book "I think therefore I play", Antonio Conte just needed one speech to catch the attention of the Juventus squad when appointed in 2011: "This squad, dear boys, is coming off two consecutive seventh-place finishes. It’s crazy. It’s shocking. I am not here for this, so it’s time to stop being so crap.’” He had fire running through his veins and he moved like a viper, Pirlo explains. Arguably he could use the very same …

Arturo Vidal: The Final Piece In Wenger’s jigsaw?

Ten years of transfer activity failed to pay dividends for Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, in the search to replace talismanic midfield enforcer Patrick Vieira. Club legend Vieira helped his side to an array of title and cup wins, and the player was a driving force behind the famous ‘Invincibles’ of the 2003-04 campaign. Wenger has attempted to fill the void with a number of recruits, all to no avail, but recent reports suggest that the Arsenal boss may finally have …

Are Arsenal ready for a title challenge?

Arsenal have been potential challengers for the Premier League for over a decade, but they haven't managed to lead a serious title challenge for a number of years. The debt incurred from moving stadiums in 2006 has prevented them from spending the amount that their challengers have in the transfer window, but their ability to remain a Champions League club has allowed them to recover quickly and they are now able to afford and attract some of the best players …
The Players Liverpool Should Target from the Bundesliga

The Players Liverpool Should Target from the Bundesliga

The summer transfer window is nearly upon us and silly season has already began. No matter how ludicrous the rumour is some papers will print it to sell papers, sites link it to get hits and fans get caught up in the hype of it all because it's a false sense of security that Liverpool can still compete with the best. I can't see Liverpool even going in for the likes of Mauro Icardi, Gonzalo Higuain and Arturo Vidal because, …
Moyes eyes Marchisio

Moyes eyes Marchisio

Manchester United manager David Moyes has reacted to his teams poor run of form by eyeing up a move for Juventus midfielder Claudio Marchisiso. Italian international Marchisio is currently out of favour at the Italian giants with boss Antonio Conte preferring a pairing of Arturo Vidal and former United player Paul Pogba in the centre of their midfield. Juventus may feel the time is right to cash in on the 27 year old as they have failed to qualify for …

Why Manchester United Need a Central Midfielder Now More Than Ever

As pre-season continues, the almost annual cry for Manchester United to sign a new midfielder has been ringing in the ears of all Premier League fans. For several years, this cry has fallen on deaf ears as Sir Alex Ferguson decided what he had was good enough and decided not to purchase a central midfielder. This year there is no Sir Alex Ferguson, Paul Scholes has retired and David Moyes is in need of a marquee signing.  Many have felt …
