Where are the Premier League's world class strikers?

It seems a very long time ago since Arsenal fans witnessed their emphatic strike partnership of Theirry Henry and Dennis Bergkamp ripping up the Premier League every week. The same generation were able to appreciate Manchester United’s attackers in all their glory – from Cristiano Ronaldo to Ruud Van Nisterooy. Even in recent seasons, ex Liverpool striker Luis Suarez, brought more quality to the Premier League as Chelsea waved goodbye to their long-serving Ivory Coast international, Didier Drogba. This season, …

Bertrand Traore should be Chelsea's long term project

Bertrand Traore's career at Chelsea is flourishing at the moment and fans must be even more pleased as the player was very close to a loan move to Marseille in the winter transfer window.

Chelsea vs PSG Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

Paris SG, who finished second in Group A behind Real Madrid, have reached the knockout stages of the Champions League for the fourth consecutive season, their best ever run.

A Broken Left, An Invisible Centre | United 0 Chelsea 0 Post-Match Review

Eden Hazard, a spectacular winger, played as a false nine.  Wayne Rooney, an aging, divisive forward, played as a false…something.  Pedro, historically a right winger for his previous club FC Barcelona, “played” on the left and only created chances when the wings were swapped.  Anthony Martial, always a striker, was slotted into a position known as “not a striker.” Peculiar tactics by Dutch managers in the Premier League did not work at all in the cluttered December match-up between two …
Mourinho: The Reasons Behind his Sacking

Mourinho: The Reasons Behind his Sacking

Jose Mourinho is the archetypal Marmite type of person, you either love him or you loathe him, there is not much in between. Jose was unceremoniously dumped by Chelsea a mere seven months after winning his 3rd and Chelsea's 4th Premier League (Ancelotti having won the other one). The problems at Chelsea started in pre-season, Jose decided to allow his players an extra week off, because he felt they were jaded at the end of the 14/15 season because of …
Time for Louis van Gaal to quit?

Time for Louis van Gaal to quit?

Manchester United seems to be progressing only in a downward spiral as each day passes by. The fans will definitely not be pleased if City manage to get Pep Guardiola and, despite their blip at Newcastle, Liverpool rise up from the ashes and progress under Jürgen Klopp while the style of play at Old Trafford remains underwhelming, to say the very least. Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has defended his approach to the game after the Red Devils were …
Five Worst Premier League Signings This Summer

Five Worst Premier League Signings This Summer

Premier League clubs spent £870m this summer, which is an eye-watering amount considering we still struggle to compete in the European competitions. The new television deal means that the money spent on a yearly basis will continue to rise and it will become the norm for £1bn to be splashed out in one window. There are risks when it comes to transfers and that has been highlighted once again this summer as some of the new recruits have failed to …
