Thirty goals a season striker, where art thou?

A lot of column inches go towards the super-star strikers of elite-level teams during the season, increasing ten-fold when the transfer window opens. You’ve all seen the storylines before “Does X score enough?”, “What else does he bring to the team?” and “What could Y bring to Z team?”. It’s the first question I’m going to take a brief look at in this article: there’s been plenty of talk of clubs similar to Liverpool’s stature needing a consistent goalscorer alongside …

Where Next For Charlie Austin and Danny Ings?

QPR v Newcastle United Preview | Team News, Key Men and Stats

A game of zero significance as far as QPR are concerned, as Rangers were relegated last weekend following a 6-0 drubbing at the hands of Manchester City. Newcastle though, have all to play for.

This Saturday, Anfield sees the coming together of two teams who must both be beginning to feel that sinking feeling when all you’ve worked for the entire season seems to be falling apart. Both teams missed crucial chances over the week to get closer to their season goals.

Aston Villa vs QPR Preview | Team News, Stats and Key Men

QPR travel to Villa Park on Tuesday having turned on the style at West Brom, beating them 4-1 on Saturday, only their second away win of the season. Villa's form has been a bit up and down under Sherwood, having lost each of their last 2 games after that resounding 4-0 win over Sunderland.  A win would put Villa clear of the relegation zone but a defeat would put them level with QPR on 28 points. QPR won 2-0 when …
