Aston Villa vs Chelsea Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

These sides will both be happy to see the back of this season and begin to rebuild their clubs in the summer. Chelsea have managed to get into the top half, but it has still been a very poor season as they were expected to challenge for the title once again. Meanwhile Aston Villa are all but relegated, as they sit bottom of the table with just 16 points. This fixture has provided us with some very exciting games over …
Manchester City Stroll Past Villa

Manchester City Stroll Past Villa

Remi Garde summed up this game in his post-match interview. "If you are too open and optimistic it would be like suicide.” Villa spent the game aiming not to concede and to grind out a point. How that policy would help a club that are 9 points adrift at the bottom of the league is beyond any bodies comprehension. Doug Ellis the previous Villa owner was in the crowd at the Etihad, and the effort it takes a 92year old …

West Brom v Hull City Preview | Team News, Stats and Key Men

Now in 2015, the term ‘6-pointer’ will start to be made regularly and expect to see it this weekend as two teams in poor form come face to face at the Hawthorns as West Brom host Hull City. West Brom overcame a poor start in their FA Cup tie with Gateshead to win with ease as the quality between both sides was too much and the Baggies put 7 past the non-league side. That match saw a new man in …

Stoke City v West Brom Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

A second match in 48 hours will Stoke host a West Brom side who are enduring a patchy run of form. The Potters’ victory away to Everton saw controversy over the awarding of what proved to be an important penalty, but also put them into touching distance of the top half of the league with only point separating them in 11th and Newcastle in 10th. The win was only Stoke’s third in 10 matches, but there are signs of it …
West Brom - Can the New Management Create a Team to Keep Them Up?

West Brom - Can the New Management Create a Team to Keep Them Up?

In my opinion West Brom will struggle this season, they are well equipped to go down (sorry WBA fans) but then come straight back up. To me Alan Irvine is a strange appointment given his level of experience of managing top flight, sustained Premier League sides. He has managed Preston North End, Sheffield Wednesday and Everton's academy so I fail to see how he has got this job on merit or, in my opinion, does someone at the club expect …

After the Premier League announced the list of players that clubs had decided were surplus to requirements last week, the dust has now settled for those players to look to pastures new. Some players will be fighting off offers from potential new clubs, while others will have their agent working day and night to find them a club that meets their ambition (or large wage demands). Here are 4 players, in no particular order, who should be on the shortlists …

What's Next For Five EPL Players Out of Contract? | Sagna, Lescott...

The end of the season is very near and clubs need to start planning their summer transfer business early to prevent a poor start to the next campaign. This has proven to be a problem for several sides in the past, costing managers their jobs in process, therefore it's crucial for clubs, especially near the bottom, to have a good start to the season. There are a lot of players in the Premier League who haven't got a contract for …
The Race To Rio: England CB's | Lescott V Jones V Smalling V Caulker

The Race To Rio: England CB's | Lescott V Jones V Smalling V Caulker

After the likes of Sol Campbell, John Terry, Rio Ferdinand, Jonathan Woodgate and Ledley King, England are now lacking in depth at centre back; but, the new generation have now got their chance to assert themselves on the national side. Only Phil Jagielka and Gary Cahill are guaranteed to be going to Brazil and they are likely to be England's starting pair. The likes of Chris Smalling, Phil Jones, Joleon Lescott and Steven Caulker will be hoping they are selected …
