Farewell Pellegrini: Manager's successful departures

Farewell Pellegrini: Manager's successful departures

Fernandinho recently called for English clubs and their fans to get behind Manchester City's Champions League campaign and vowed his side wanted to go all the way for Pellegrini, who couldn't wish for a better send off if they're successful. The Chillean manager will be leaving the Blues at the end of the season as Manchester City welcome ex-Barcelona boss, Pep Guardiola to the helm for the start of the 2016-17 Premier League campaign. As it stands, Pellegrini could still …
Will Vardy Change Anything?

Will Vardy Change Anything?

Jamie Vardy, a £1million buy from Fleetwood Town in the Conference in 2012, is the Premier League's leading goal scorer. That is an astonishing feat and he is one short of Ruud Van Nistelrooy's all time record of scoring in ten consecutive Premier League matches. He had such self belief that he inserted a clause in his contract that he would get a bonus if he played for England when signing for Leicester in 2012. Rarely has a non league …
Lambert Signs for West Brom: Rickie the Risk?

Lambert Signs for West Brom: Rickie the Risk?

‘Facts are meaningless. You can use facts to prove anything that’s even remotely true.’
Wise words indeed from Homer Simpson, and particularly relevant to West Bromwich Albion’s newest signing, Rickie Lambert. 119 players scored more goals in the Premier League last season than the England international. That said, he’d scored a brace for the Baggies within three hours of putting pen to paper on a two-year deal. Make of those facts what you will. The big question is …
Quality versus Quantity | Clubs Should Be Wiser With Their Money

Quality versus Quantity | Clubs Should Be Wiser With Their Money

‘If you spend more than £100 million, you expect to be challenging for the league.’ Sorry about this Brendan, I know you’ve got enough on your plate at the moment, but you can’t expect to get away with comments like that with Liverpool finishing 25 points off the pace. Since 2012, Rodgers has bought 24 players, with Daniel Sturridge and Philippe Coutinho the only confirmed hits. This year’s crop of Lambert, Lallana, Can, Lovren, Markovic, Manquillo, Moreno and, the crowning …
Is Danny Ings Good Enough to Audition for the Role of Luis Suarez?

Is Danny Ings Good Enough to Audition for the Role of Luis Suarez?

Losing a player of Luis Suarez’s ability would unsettle the very best of teams. If Suarez were to walk out of Barcelona this summer, the club’s on field activities would suffer, and that’s even with the familiar faces of Lionel Messi and Neymar Jr to fill the void. If the departure of Suarez would cause such disruption to this star studded team, imagine the pain Brendan Rodgers felt when he reluctantly allowed the Uruguayan to depart his side for the sunny shores …

A lot has happened in a year for these two clubs, Spurs have seen Gareth Bale, Andre Villas-Boas and Tim Sherwood all depart within the last twelve months - bringing in seven new faces and finishing 6th; their worst Premier League position since the 2008/2009 season.
