Iheanacho vs Rashford: Who is the deadliest?

Iheanacho vs Rashford: Who is the deadliest?

Marcus Rashford isn't the only star that has risen in recent months. The Manchester United forward may be grabbing all the headlines with his achievements but Kelechi Iheanacho is performing just as well on the other side of the city. Pep Guardiola's arrival at Manchester City must've been an exciting prospect for Iheanacho, who seems to have relished the opportunity to grow under the former Barcelona boss. He featured in City's opening Premier League clash of the season and was …
Premier League's youth: Should they stay or should they go?

Premier League's youth: Should they stay or should they go?

The Premier League is bursting with young talent, many of which don't ever get an opportunity to show what they can do with regular first team action. Some of the best managers in the league have found ways to implement their youngsters and bring out the best of their abilities but in an era of inflation, big spending and money-dominated owner-ships; it's becoming increasingly hard for young talent to break through the ranks in some of England's top clubs. The …
Wayne Rooney must play in midfield

Wayne Rooney must play in midfield

Jose Mourinho surprised many with comments this week stating he plans to play Wayne Rooney as a striker and not in midfield as many predicted.

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 …
England are still England

England are still England

After attention was inevitably drawn to the disgusting scenes on the streets of Marseille, it did eventually switch to events on the pitch at Stade Velodrome, where England were very….. well, England. After using the pre-tournament friendlies to unsuccessfully try out Wayne Rooney behind Harry Kane and Jamie Vardy in a 4-4-2 diamond, Roy Hodgson opted for, what on paper, was a 4-3-3. However, as it turned out, it was too often more like a 4-5-1 for England that left …

2015-16 Premier League Season Review: Part Two

Read Part One here... European success On the whole, it’s been disappointing for English clubs competing in Europe in the last five years but this year brought a little bit more success. Last season, not a single English club made it through to the quarter finals of the Champions League – although Sergio Aguero finished 9th in the top goal scorers list for the competition with 6 goals. In 2013-14, Manchester United were knocked out by Bayern Munich in the …
Another Rashford Inspired Win for United

Another Rashford Inspired Win for United

Another goal which turned out to be mightily important for Manchester United from Marcus Rashford sealed maximum points against what is arguably the worst side the Premier League has seen in years. It was an amazingly drab affair with chances at a premium but that is something the fans should have seen coming in a game between two of the least proficient sides in terms of chance creation in the league. United, at the end of the day, got the …
