Where Are They Now? | Manchester United 2008-2009

Guilty Pleasure of a Liverpool fan: Dimitar Berbatov

Guilty Pleasure of a Liverpool fan: Dimitar Berbatov

We’ve all got one. The one we weren’t allowed to look at; the one we had to admire in secret, from a distance. One more appropriate to deny than to acknowledge, to dismiss than to appreciate. Guilty pleasures in football usually cross supporting lines. It’s very seldom that one can support one of the top sides and not suddenly themselves in awe, in nearly shameful veneration of a particular talent that not only plays for a rival team, but in …

Aston Villa 0 – 1 Manchester City: Tactical Review

With their title hopes all but evaporated, Manchester City went into Tuesday’s game less concerned with catching Manchester United than holding off Tottenham in third, who were now only two points behind Mancini’s side following their victory in the North London derby. For Aston Villa, their battle against relegation continued and a point would have taken them ahead of Wigan and out of the relegation zone. Line-ups After Yaya Toure impressed in an advanced midfield role against Chelsea last week, …

Premier League's Top Goal Scorers | Shots Per Goal Stats Analysis

Our first look at shots per goal came back in December where Theo Walcott and Javier Hernandez were the most efficient players requiring the least amount of shots to score a goal whilst Adam Le Fondre was at bottom of that list. Have things changed? All of the stats are below and we've used only players that have scored 6 or more goals in the Premier League.
