The Top Strikers in the Premier League - Who's More Clinical and Who's More Valuable?

This season there seems to be very little excitement left in the Premier League. The manner in which Chelsea have managed to dominate the league has ensured that there is very little chance involved in deciding the eventual winner of the league. Other teams and their fans do try to manufacture excitement – will Manchester United pip Liverpool to the fourth place in the league? Will Everton pip them both? Will Sunderland get out of jail again? Which of the …
Where Will Chelsea’s Goals Come From?

Where Will Chelsea’s Goals Come From?

It is not clear if Marina Granovskaia was aware that André Villas-Boas was back in the market after a year and a half out of the game, but the Portuguese former manager would have allowed himself a wry smile on learning about Frank Lampard’s appointment this summer.  Installed as manager by struggling Marseille a month before the Chelsea legend was announced as the Blues’ new boss, Villas-Boas famously tried and failed with his youth integration policy at Stamford Bridge eight …
Chelsea will never have a better opportunity to appoint Frank Lampard as manager

Chelsea will never have a better opportunity to appoint Frank Lampard as manager

Maurizio Sarri has now left Chelsea, which leaves a vacant manager's role at the club. There only appears to be one candidate with Frank Lampard the overwhelming favourite for the post. It represents a huge risk for the Blues, but taking their current situation into account, it could be the perfect time to bring a club legend back to the club. Chelsea are unable to sign players for the next two transfer windows, after being given a transfer ban last …
Eden Hazard Bids Adieu to Chelsea: A Galactico Leaves the Premier League

Eden Hazard Bids Adieu to Chelsea: A Galactico Leaves the Premier League

The quality of football in most leagues across the world can be represented best by a handful of players who somehow become synonymous with the league they have been playing in. Think of La Liga and you get an image of Lionel Messi in your head. One year back, Ronaldo’s image would have accompanied the Argentine’s image. Similarly, when someone mentions the English Premier League, or when a video commercial of the EPL airs anywhere in the world, one of …
Arsenal vs Chelsea | Europa League Final Preview

Arsenal vs Chelsea | Europa League Final Preview

Arsenal's entire season comes down to this single game. If they win and get back into the Champions League, this season can be considered a success. It's an absolute failure if they don't. They choked away a chance at the Champions League in the Premier League, they cannot afford to do that again by losing this game. Chelsea already have Champions League secured, but their manager could find himself on his way out anyway. Maurizio Sarri's future has been in …
Fraser could be a risk worth taking for Arsenal

Fraser could be a risk worth taking for Arsenal

Arsenal will be waiting to see what happens on Wednesday before deciding on their transfer strategy for the summer. A victory over Chelsea in the Europa League final will clinch a Champions League spot for next season, which will provide a huge boost to both their transfer budget and reputation. Until their fate has been decided, transfer rumours in the media need to be treated with caution. One of the main rumours to emerge regarding the Gunners has been a …
Maurizio Sarri – The Right Man At The Wrong Club

Maurizio Sarri – The Right Man At The Wrong Club

Time. How often do football managers invoke the need for more of that precious commodity to do their jobs? A philosophy developed over years and possibly decades needs an extended period of time to be that all-pervasive influence that courses through the veins of every person at a football club. One might tire of it eventually as was the case with Wengerball at Arsenal but the biggest nightmare for a manager is for the ideology to be rejected before an …
Who is the best Premier League Number 10?

Who is the best Premier League Number 10?

When you look over the course of football history there have been many changes in regard to formations. Whether it be the 4-4-2 that the English game knows and loves so dearly, or whether it is a more continental 3-5-2, there was one position that has continued significance. That is, of course, being the coveted number 10 role, one that has arguably taken on more importance over the past few years what with the way that attacking units have evolved …
