EPL: Are Referees and Linesmen ruining the beautiful game?

EPL: Are Referees and Linesmen ruining the beautiful game?

"The best League in the world"..."The most entertaining league in the world" Terms flouted about on a regular basis by pundits and analysts when describing the English Premier league. But can it really be called such, when the referees and linesmen get it so wrong, so often? Maybe they also want to add to the excitement.... Maybe they're just useless.

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.

Guilty Pleasure of a Liverpool fan: Ruud Van Nistelrooy

Guilty Pleasure of a Liverpool fan: Ruud Van Nistelrooy

We’ve all got one. The one we weren’t allowed to look at; the one we had to admire in secret, from a distance. One more appropriate to deny than to acknowledge, to dismiss than to appreciate. Guilty pleasures in football usually cross supporting lines. It’s very seldom that one can support one of the top sides and not suddenly themselves in awe, in nearly shameful veneration of a particular talent that not only plays for a rival team, but in …
5 Summer Signings to Improve Liverpool

5 Summer Signings to Improve Liverpool

Liverpool’s season promised a lot but delivered very little.
