Chelsea vs Crystal Palace Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

Chelsea are quickly becoming one of the best teams to watch in the country during their year of transition under Frank Lampard. They welcome Crystal Palace to Stamford Bridge, in what will be a tricky fixture for the Blues. Despite their position in the top four, they have struggled to win matches at home. They have only won three matches across all competitions at home this season and this is a record that needs to be corrected sooner rather than …

Liverpool Vs Crystal Palace Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

Roy Hodgson is coming back to Anfield. To Liverpool fans’ relief, only as a visiting team’s manager. This Saturday afternoon, the former Reds manager will lead his Crystal Palace side to Anfield and hope to dent his former club’s title bid. His side actually did a favour for Liverpool when they beat Manchester City last month. Now the Reds will want to make sure that they do not suffer a similar fate on Saturday. There are a few things that …

Crystal Palace Vs Liverpool Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

Two sides that were victorious in their first-round matches will go head-to-head this Monday night. Liverpool will travel to Selhurst Park to take on Roy Hodgson’s resurgent Crystal Palace. It is a trip that the Reds have been successful on in the last three instances. However, it is also a fixture that reminds Liverpool fans of what the end to the 2013-14 season could have been. Crystal Palace have begun this season in a far better fashion than the last …
How Important is Wilfried Zaha to Crystal Palace?

How Important is Wilfried Zaha to Crystal Palace?

The arrival of Roy Hodgson at Selhurst Park seems to have had an impact on one man in particular. Although the former England manager didn’t ignite a turn in Palace’s fortunes straight away, the Eagles have certainly improved significantly in the past month. It is just one loss in eight Premier League games now for Crystal Palace, and Wilfried Zaha’s performances have been a fundamental part in it. The number-11’s talent has never been questionable, more so the consistency of …
Echte Liebe- The Liverpool Way Feat. Jurgen Klopp

Echte Liebe- The Liverpool Way Feat. Jurgen Klopp

Famous just as it is infamous, revered just as it is despised; the red part of Merseyside carries the essence of Shakespearian plays. There’s a pinch of comedy with a bit of tragedy; glorious triumphs and a fair bit of romanticism (oh and the history, too). During the escalation of early 1960s, Bill Shankly entrenched the ethos of playing the Liverpool way deep. Besides having a distinctive style of play that earned admirers across the globe, Shanks laid down the holy …
Big Sam for England?

Big Sam for England?

The way certain sections of the UK media built themselves up for the inevitable disappointment at Euro 2016 with England, it seems they really haven’t learned from history and after the departure of the beleaguered Roy Hodgson, it seems the FA haven’t learned either. Portugal winning Euro 2016 was really a victory for tactical prowess over superior talent.  Despite having a genuine world superstar in their midst and some talented players in their squad, Portugal probably shouldn’t have been able …
The Aftermath of England's and Hodgson's Euro 2016 Exit

The Aftermath of England's and Hodgson's Euro 2016 Exit

For the second time in a week, England have managed an ignominious exit from Europe and Roy Hodgson, much like the hapless politicians, oversaw it without any cohesive plan. The humiliating defeat to Iceland was Hodgson’s final act as England manager and summed up his handling of this tournament. Yes, England did not have the best squad of players heading into Euro 2016, despite the hype, and their ceiling was probably a semi-final at best, but the way they were …
Hodgson's England Keep It Blunt

Hodgson's England Keep It Blunt

I think I may have been one of the few not that impressed with England’s performance against Russia. ITV were ready to release a DVD box set of the game, whilst pundits got themselves hot under the collar with Roy Hodgson’s side. Although England started the game well, things quickly dropped off in the second half and they lacked any cutting edge. To compound a performance that rapidly lost energy, the substitutions, or lack of them, from Hodgson were extremely …
