Guilty Pleasure of a Liverpool fan: Dimitar Berbatov

Guilty Pleasure of a Liverpool fan: Dimitar Berbatov

We’ve all got one. The one we weren’t allowed to look at; the one we had to admire in secret, from a distance. One more appropriate to deny than to acknowledge, to dismiss than to appreciate. Guilty pleasures in football usually cross supporting lines. It’s very seldom that one can support one of the top sides and not suddenly themselves in awe, in nearly shameful veneration of a particular talent that not only plays for a rival team, but in …
Can Spurs break into the top Four?

Can Spurs break into the top Four?

Tottenham have always been on the edge of the top four, but they have failed to break into it on a consistent basis and the fan base is getting restless. The club has everything it needs to become a top club in England and in Europe, but they have failed to make the final step. They have gone through a number of managers and their recruitment has been far from the level it needs to be. In Mauricio Pochettino, they …

Fulham vs Sunderland Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

This is yet another six-pointer for both sides. Sunderland have failed to win many matches against those teams who are around them and that needs to change. It's matches like this that could prove to be the difference between going down and staying up at the end of the season. Fulham got a huge 2-1 win against West Ham in their last Premier League match and they'll be hoping for something similar this weekend. Both sides have become established as …

Dimitar Berbatov | Player Performance Analysis vs. Aston Villa

Martin Jol wasn't the only thing that departed from Craven Cottage recently, as it seemed to be that Dimitar Berbatov's bad attitude had also disappeared with an outstanding performance enabling Fulham to come away from Sundays game with much needed 3 points. The contrast from his last home appearance under Martin Jol in a 2-1 defeat to Swansea to this weekends game is obvious and can clearly be seen.

Liverpool Vs Fulham Preview | Team News, Facts & Key Men

Liverpool welcome Fulham to Anfield this weekend with both teams looking to bounce back after losing their last Premier League outing. Liverpool find themselves in 3rd place, owing only to goal difference behind Chelsea. Last weekend’s loss to Arsenal stretched the gap between Liverpool and Arsenal to five points, but with a Champions League spot the aim this season, Liverpool will feel they are performing well enough. Fulham find themselves closer to the opposite end of the table in 16th …
What Is Happening At Fulham? Jol under pressure?

What Is Happening At Fulham? Jol under pressure?

Fulham have become part of the Premier League furniture over the last decade. They are rarely in relegation trouble but they are a consistent mid table side. Strangely, they are surrounded by uncertainty after a stuttering start to the season, with Martin Jol emerging as an early favourite to be the first Premier League manager to be sacked. The Dutchman has tried to change the image of the club, from an efficient mid table unit to an entertaining side full …

Newcastle United v Fulham Preview | Odds, Stats & Team News

Martin Jol’s Fulham side travel to St James' Park to face a Newcastle United side who haven’t scored in the Premier League in 325 minutes, and haven’t scored at home in 450 minutes of football.
