Is it the right time for England to replace Gareth Southgate?

The dust has settled after England's World Cup exit. Prior to the tournament, a lot would have predicted a quarter final exit to France. However, the manner of the performance probably means that this tournament has gone better than expected. On the night, the Three Lions were the better team, dominating all of the stats, except the one that matters, goals scored. It was arguably the best performance under Gareth Southgate, with the tactical plan working against the world champions. …

It’s time for Pochettino and Tottenham to part ways

Arsenal were disappointing in defeat against Liverpool last weekend. There was a clear plan from Unai Emery, as he looked to counter with pace and exploit the wide spaces left vacant by the advancing Reds' full-backs. It wasn't a bad idea. In fact, if Nicolas Pepe had scored his one-on-one at 0-0, the Gunners may have gone on to get something from the game. However, the new signing was denied by Adrian and a predictable home win came to pass. …

Spurs’ Eriksen Dilemma Could Derail Campaign

Given the lack of defensive cover, the club may still hang onto the two players on the wrong side of thirty and let them run …
