Aston Villa Must Chase Quality, Not Quantity, This Summer

Aston Villa Must Chase Quality, Not Quantity, This Summer

Aston Villa can count themselves lucky to be heading into a second season in the Premier League, rather than looking at the prospect of a season back in the Championship, but they shouldn't care about that. Villa took a point from a draw with Sheffield United when goal-line technology failed to award Sheffield United a clear goal. Villa fans will, and should, point out that they could still have come back to score in that game. And they had their …
Why Watford Could Bounce Back Quickly If They Don't Overthink Things.

Why Watford Could Bounce Back Quickly If They Don't Overthink Things.

Watford announced that they have appointed Vladimir Ivic as their new manager, and tumble weeds rolled about in response. Ivic is not a name many will be familiar with having spent his playing career in Serbia and Greece, with a brief spell at Gladbach in 2004 his only venture into a top five league. As manager, he's worked in Greece and Israel. A bit of quick research shows a respectable track record of success in his short managerial career. In …
Five Areas Leeds United Should Look To Strengthen This Summer

Five Areas Leeds United Should Look To Strengthen This Summer

Leeds United are back in the Premier League, and not before time. One of the true giants of English football, the club that's seen it all are back among the elite. Under Marcelo Bielsa, Leeds have been reborn and after a 16 seasons absence they finally achieved their goal of returning to England's top flight.

Five Potential Landing Spots for Wilfried Zaha

Five Potential Landing Spots for Wilfried Zaha

Wilf Zaha is a player who divides opinion. Some think he's a top level player, a player capable of playing for any club at any level. Others see him as all sizzle, no steak. An immensely talented player who's fun to watch but doesn't produce enough. Four goals and five assists this past season is a poor return for a player of his talents, especially given everything runs through him at Palace. There are extenuating circumstances to that disappointing season, …
Eight Centre-Backs Liverpool Could Look At To Fill A Need

Eight Centre-Backs Liverpool Could Look At To Fill A Need

With Kostas Tsimikas set to be announced as Liverpool's first summer signing this week, Liverpool have ticked off one box on their list of tasks for this summer. They have found a back-up leftback to offer cover and competition for Andy Robertson. With that done and dusted, Liverpool can move on to other areas that need addressing. Those would appear to be a back-up central defender, cover in attack and a central midfielder if a deal can be struck for …
Swansea City Superstar Gylfi Sigurdsson Worth His £30m Price Tag And West Ham Should Be Ready To Pay

Swansea City Superstar Gylfi Sigurdsson Worth His £30m Price Tag And West Ham Should Be Ready To Pay

Swansea City has tasted some decent form in the last few games and are currently 16th in the points table 3 points off the drop zone. Swansea have a decent squad that deserves to finish far above their current league position and they might end up losing a couple of players even if they managed to stay in the top flight for another season. Out of the many such star at the club, Icelandic international Gylfi Sigurdsson is one who …
5 Summer Signings to Improve Liverpool

5 Summer Signings to Improve Liverpool

Liverpool’s season promised a lot but delivered very little. Most of the players that were brought in the summer window last year were getting to step into the bigger leagues and a chance to make a name for themselves at one of the most iconic clubs in the world.  The success rate in the transfer market for the Merseyside club is not high and that could be down to the reason that the players that have left were never adequately …
Thrifty Business: The Best Signings for Under £10 Million

Thrifty Business: The Best Signings for Under £10 Million

Typical, isn't it? You spend your time writing a nice little article on the best signings for under £10 million, and just as you are finalising it you're kindly informed that Stoke, yes Stoke, have signed Bojan 'Lionel Messi 2.0' Krkic. For what it's worth, Bojan should be more suited to a Stoke team managed by Mark Hughes, a team that plays slightly more attractive football than that of the sound defensive unit marshalled by previous manager Tony Pulis. Anyway …
