Will The Spurs Old Guard Fit Pochettino's System?

It's been a fairly quiet summer at Tottenham Hotspur for a change, the last few summers have been rife with transfer speculation about their best players (cc: Gareth Bale, Luka Modric and Dimitar Berbatov). However, this summer they are yet to receive any concrete bids for their key players in Hugo Lloris, Jan Vertonghen and Christian Eriksen - luckily for Spurs, Lloris has signed a new five year deal, and Belgian defender Vertonghen is in talks about extending his contract. …

Calum Chambers to Arsenal | What Lies Ahead for the full back

Arsenal have had a busy transfer window so far and now have made versatile defender Calum Chambers their fourth signing of the summer.  The 19 year old Southampton academy graduate has made his move to North London.  The England U-19 captain signed for an undisclosed fee thought to be around £11m that could rise to £16m with instalments.

Vidal or Strootman: Who will fix Manchester United's 'broken' midfield?

Roy Keane, for all his flaws as a manager/pundit/human being, was a fantastic footballer.

Some argue that when he left Manchester United to join Celtic after very public fallouts with Sir Alex and many of United's players, Keane left a huge hole in their midfield that has never been completely filled.

On the south coast, Southampton rebuilt under Mauricio Pochettino throughout 2013 and half of 2014 - only for him to  leave for Tottenham Hotspur in May 2014. Ronald Koeman has replaced the Argentine and …

Loic Remy Compared to Wilfried Bony, Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge

With Liverpool seemingly on the verge of signing Queens Park Rangers striker Loic Remy, I thought it would be prudent to analyse what the Frenchman could bring to Liverpool Football Club that would be different or better than some of the other options at the club’s disposal from last season and the approaching term ahead. Wilfried Bony has been linked to the Reds in recent weeks but with interest now cooling we’ll look to discover whether or not the Reds …
How can Liverpool replace Luis Suarez and who with?

How can Liverpool replace Luis Suarez and who with?

In this article I will be focusing on the impact Luis Suarez's move to Barcelona will have on Liverpool FC and how they will go about finding an adequate replacement for him. This season Liverpool will have to be a completely different team and I would like to go on record and say how hard I believe Liverpool will find this process. Suarez was, by far, Liverpool's best player last season, so finding someone with his prowess and ability will …
