Palace's Move for Eberechi Eze Should Signal The Start Of A New Era

Palace's Move for Eberechi Eze Should Signal The Start Of A New Era

Following a season where Crystal Palace finished comfortably in 14th position, nine points clear of 18th place Bournemouth, the Eagles will be looking forward to an 8th successive season in the Premier League. This is by far the longest spell spent in the top flight of English football in the club's history. It's a fantastic achievement for a club who's previous longest tenure in the top division was the four year period from 1989 to 1993, when they found themselves …

Tottenham vs Crystal Palace Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

Tottenham will be full of confidence after their historic mid-week win over Real Madrid in the Champions League and they will want to build further momentum with a win over Crystal Palace. Although the Eagles are at the bottom of the Premier League, they are starting to show improvement under Roy Hodgson after taking four points from the last three matches. In the two meetings between the clubs last season, Spurs took maximum points, but it wasn't easy for them …
What is Going Wrong for Crystal Palace?

What is Going Wrong for Crystal Palace?

Currently sitting in 20th place, both winless, goalless, and pointless, is Crystal Palace. This position would not have been anticipated by most Palace fans and football pundits, after a decent summer transfer window bringing in the permanent transfer of Mamadou Sakho, Timothy Fosu-Mensah, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, and Jairo Riedewald. However, despite these additions, the Eagles have looked extremely poor under both Frank de Boer and new manager Roy Hodgson, collecting a series of unwanted records and not managing to score a …

Andrew Robertson Can Free Up Milner for Other Duties

Pick up any speculative article about Liverpool’s transfers from last summer and one would assume that the only position Liverpool desperately needed to fill was left back. This was before Mamadou Sakho’s pre-season transgressions that have led to desperate tap ups this summer. It was also before Red Bull Leipzig and Naby Keita lit up the Bundesliga. Alberto Moreno had endured a torrid second half in the Europa League final and the clamour for a new left back amongst the …

Five Virgil Van Dijk Alternatives Liverpool Can Pursue

It has been a tumultuous fortnight for Liverpool fans. What started with indications of ambition from the Reds during this transfer window – two rumoured offers topping their record signing to get in a speedy winger and one of the best defenders in the Premier League, was followed by the underwhelming news that Liverpool have signed Dominic Solanke from Chelsea on a free. Thankfully the youngster has provided some cheer to the Reds with his performances at the U-20 World …

Manchester United v Crystal Palace Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

As another Premier League season comes to an end, Manchester United host Crystal Palace to play what is the quintessential definition of a dead rubber. Premise  United are guaranteed to finish, yes you guessed it right, 6th in the league, regardless of the outcome of Sunday's football match. The Red Devils have put all the eggs in the Europa League basket and paid the price for a lack of complete focus on the Premier League games which has made a …
Mamadou Sakho Could Be the Defender Liverpool Need

Mamadou Sakho Could Be the Defender Liverpool Need

The last twelve months have been really hard on Mamadou Sakho. Few other footballers can compete with Sakho in terms of misfortune over the last twelve months. Danny Ings or Bastian Schweinsteiger perhaps but Sakho has seen misfortune from every professional aspect in the last one year. On April 23 last year, Liverpool received communication from UEFA about Sakho’s assumed doping violation. The club dropped him from the side and did not select him for any of the remaining games. …
Klopp's Liverpool will not win the title anytime soon

Klopp's Liverpool will not win the title anytime soon

In a fortnight during which rumblings of dressing room and fan unrest have appeared in the media, it could seem that Klopp-mania has well and truly come to an end at Liverpool. While there might be a grain of truth to the stories supposedly coming out of the dressing room, and I believe that to be a good thing (more on that later), the latest story about fan unrest concocted on the basis of some graffiti sprayed on a couple …
