2016/17 - Bring it on Premier League!

2016/17 - Bring it on Premier League!

After a summer of international tournaments immediately after last season, closely followed by pre-season, you’d think I’d be somewhat burned out; but on the contrary, I can’t wait for the Premier League season to get started. I’m not really the biggest fan of pre-season and people getting over excited at matches that are mostly about building fitness and integrating new players. No matter how friendlies are dressed up as, be it International Cup, Community Shield, Emirates Cup or whatever, there’s …
Why Ashley Williams is the Perfect Signing for Everton

Why Ashley Williams is the Perfect Signing for Everton

Everton have had another poor league campaign by all accounts where they ended up in the bottom half for the second season in a row after a sensational fifth place finish in 2013/14. A string of horrific defeats including the 4-0 derby drubbing at Anfield might have ultimately led to them parting ways with their manager Roberto Martinez, but the supporters and everyone associated with this grand old football club seem to be excited about the new era under Ronald Koeman …
Who are this season’s Premier League dark horses?

Who are this season’s Premier League dark horses?

The 2016-17 Premier League campaign is just weeks away and the summer transfer window is drawing to a close. The top flight welcomes three new teams; Middlesbrough, Hull City and Burnley who all made the jump from the Championship. Leicester City was last season’s fairy tale story but which club will make the headlines this year? Will Jurgen Klopp spur Liverpool on to glory in his first full season in charge or will Jose Mourinho return to the Premier League …
Idrissa Gueye - Is he good enough for Everton?

Idrissa Gueye - Is he good enough for Everton?

News broke earlier in the week that Everton had met Idrissa Gueye's release clause of £7.1m and the midfielder emerged as the favourite to be Ronald Koeman's first outfield signing of the summer. It will be underwhelming for Everton fans after being linked with Gini Wijnaldum, William Carvalho and Kalidou Kouilbaly, but this could be one of the bargains of the summer. He may have played in one of the worst Premier League sides in history at Aston Villa. However, …
Gylfi Sigurdsson - A Good Fit for Everton?

Gylfi Sigurdsson - A Good Fit for Everton?

Everton have yet to make an outfield signing this summer and they will be hoping to accelerate their transfer business in the coming weeks. It is clear from the players they have been linked with that a goalscoring midfielder and a new keeper are a priority for Ronald Koeman. They were believed to be in for Gini Wijnaldum, who has since joined rivals Liverpool. A new link made on Friday was with Gylfi Sigurdsson, which is exciting for Everton fans. The …
Georginio Wijnaldum - a good fit for Spurs?

Georginio Wijnaldum - a good fit for Spurs?

Georginio Wijnaldum came to the Premier League last summer, joining Newcastle in a surprise move, with many considering him good enough to play for a top six club. He had a mixed first season, but his return of 11 goals and 5 assists was very good, especially given Newcastle were relegated. He showed that he was suited to the Premier League and he was one of the few players in the Magpies' squad that came out of the season with …
What should Ronald Koeman do at Everton this summer?

What should Ronald Koeman do at Everton this summer?

This is a managerial move that has shocked many as Dutch football legend Ronald Koeman has opted to switch Southampton for Everton, despite the Saints finishing five places above his new club. It is certainly a risky move for Koeman, as the pressure will be increased on Merseyside, but he will feel that there is more potential for growth at Everton. Southampton continually sell their key players and he will have doubted his ability to keep them in the top …
Southampton's sustained success means it's a successful season for club

Southampton's sustained success means it's a successful season for club

2014-15 was a very successful season for Southampton as they exceeded expectations. Koeman's men were title challengers for months and kept themselves in the top 4 for a large part of the season. They eventually finished seventh which might be slightly underwhelming given how well they were playing in the beginning of the season but was a brilliant result considering they lost their manager and a host of key players to the likes of Liverpool, Manchester United and Arsenal. In sport, what …
