Jairo Riedewald to Crystal Palace: Eagles Changing Colours

In the 2015-16 season, there was a time when Stoke City fans started calling their team Stokecelona. In that season Stoke had more La Masia graduates in their squad than Arsenal and for a part of that season, Stoke City did play an uncharacteristically passing brand of football. If initial signs are anything to go by, we might see Crystal Palace, another team that is traditionally known for deep defending and direct football, play a more passing game. The first …

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

Liverpool take on Crystal Palace this Sunday at Selhurst Park. The biggest problem Liverpool has been facing under Jurgen Klopp is their inconsistency. Liverpool’s inconsistency this season has been supremely consistent. Every outstanding result which promises a new dawn, has been either followed or preceded by a shocker.

On May 9th, Manchester United travel down to Selhurst park to take on Crystal Palace.  Despite the somewhat perilous positions for these two sides around Christmas, both of them face a relatively comfortable end to the season.  While the top four is technically still up for grabs, United are heavy favourites for that all important fourth spot and realistically just need to grab four or five more points, even if Liverpool win their remaining fixtures.  Palace, on the other hand, have …

Venkys | A case for the defence | Rovers

The sale of Christopher Samba to Anzhi Makhachkala for in excess of £10m on Friday night represents the third major defensive departure from Ewood Park in the last eight months. Samba follows Ryan Nelsen and Phil Jones out of the door, but does this leave Venky’s as defenceless as Rovers?

Rovers’ deadline day Dann deal

Rovers’ deadline day Dann deal

The final day of the summer transfer window saw Blackburn Rovers conclude deals for three new signings, Scott Dann, Yakubu and Jordan Slew, as they became one of the most active Premier League sides on transfer deadline day. The arrival of Premier League experience in the form of Dann and Yakubu coupled with the retention of captain Chris Samba gives cause for optimism for Steve Kean after what has been a dismal start to the season.
