Will Zlatan be Worth the Fuss?

Will Zlatan be Worth the Fuss?

It was the move rumoured for weeks and now the player himself has confirmed it’s happening: Zlatan Ibrahimović will finally be making his way to the Premier League to join Manchester United on a free transfer. The much debated UK weekly contribution to the EU budget may pale in comparison to Ibrahimović’s rumoured wages at Old Trafford. Of course, that’s tongue-in-cheek, but in all seriousness, the board will expect shirt sales to recoup a significant portion of their outlay and …
Juan Mata: Play well but it won’t matter

Juan Mata: Play well but it won’t matter

Manchester United’s midfield maestro, Juan Mata, could be in for a rough season when he is reunited with former boss Jose Mourinho. The pair weren’t the best of friends at Chelsea and the Spanish midfielder was often left out of favour by the Portuguese manager. A £37m offer from Manchester United was far too good for Jose to refuse and Mata was axed from the Chelsea squad in favour of Oscar, who made the No.10 role his own under Jose …
Would Cavani be a better fit for Arsenal than Vardy?

Would Cavani be a better fit for Arsenal than Vardy?

A striker appears to be at the top of Arsene Wenger's wish list this summer, after the club signed Granit Xhaka early on. Arsenal activated the release clause in Jamie Vardy's Leicester contract, but the forward is stalling on a move to the Gunners and they need to start looking at other targets. The move for Vardy looks increasingly unlikely, which is why the link to Edinson Cavani is interesting. He is very much a different forward to Vardy and …
Zlatan To United - How Will it Work Out?

Zlatan To United - How Will it Work Out?

Manchester United fans were in for a treat as Louis Van Gaal was replaced by Jose Mourinho, and that excitement had barely died down, before they announced the possible signing of the high-profile striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic. There is no denying the calibre and skill of Ibrahimovic as he has proven numerous times before. A player that thrives on passion combined with accurate offensive skill, is exactly what Manchester United needs to look for in their new striker recruits. As proved …
Remembering When Teams Didn't Have Squad Numbers

Remembering When Teams Didn't Have Squad Numbers

I grew up in the 1980's where Football coverage was completely different to how it is now. For those of you old enough to remember the times before Sky and the Premier League, you will recall there was no Soccer Sunday, no expert analysis, no all seater stadiums and very few players from abroad (ignoring Jesper Olsen & Joel Sivebaek, anyway!). Yes Football in the 80's was on the up, but it was nothing like the financial monster it has …

There are plenty of extremely talented players available for free and the shrewd clubs could be able to do great business for the summer by snapping up these out-of-contract players.

Who Will Be Mourinho's First Signing: Ibrahimovic or Benzema?

Who Will Be Mourinho's First Signing: Ibrahimovic or Benzema?

FA Cup winners Manchester United will finally be under the guidance of a new manager after Louis Van Gaal’s departure, and they have roped in Jose Mourinho to be LvG’s successor at the club. After a lot of heated debates between fans as to whether or not LvG deserved to continue for another season, many United fans are relieved to have Jose take up the reigns, albeit a few concerns here and there. As witnessed in the matches in this last …
KDB ready for PSG

KDB ready for PSG

It was at the end of January when I asked if Manchester City could cope without Kevin De Bruyne, who had just sustained a knee injury. He had made quite the impact at The Etihad since his big money transfer from Wolfsburg last summer and his loss at a crucial time in the season threatened to disrupt the club’s push for honours. Despite the depth of talent in City’s squad, De Bruyne’s season stats suggested he could be a big …
