Could Brahimi be heading to join Klopp's revolution?

Jurgen Klopp is looking to get a lot of business done early to ensure his squad gets a full pre season together. His style of play centred on gegenpressing needs to be worked on heavily, with Liverpool set to be having double and triple training sessions this pre season.

February, March and Arsenal

In recent years, when it comes to the Champions League knockout stages, it’s seemed you could guarantee two things. One: Arsenal would qualify for it. Two: Arsenal get knocked out. In fact, it’s not since the 2009/10 season that Arsenal have progressed beyond the round of 16, when they were eliminated from the tournament by Barcelona at the quarter final stage. Each of the seasons from then on, Arsenal went out of the competition in that round of 16 and …

What will Manchester City really look like under Pep?

I’ve seen some absolute nonsense over the past week from ex-pros, sharing their thoughts on how the Manchester City under Pep Guardiola might look next season.

Messi to Chelsea - It can't happen....can it?

Ah the January transfer window; a period of mass exaggeration, media hyperbole and ridiculous rumours, culminating in an extremely loud matinee performance from everybody's favourite presenter, Jim White. What's not to like? While shorter than its summer incarnation, the January transfer window seems to generate even more transfer hysteria amongst the majority of football fans, mainly due to the pre-season hope of their team disappearing more quickly than Wayne Rooney's weave. The need for improvement fuels a panic for fresh …
