  1. The Premier League Season So Far: Part One


    March 5, 2013 by Nick Harland

    Liverpool: Philosopher Brendan Rodgers has had a mixed time at Liverpool this season, with the team struggling at times to adapt to his preferred style of play. Things certainly were not helped when he was conspicuous by his absence for a crunch match with Manchester United, as it coincided with the launch of his book ‘Hoof It: Why Long Ball Works.’ Rodgers was then absent for three subsequent matches to fulfil promotional duties for the best-seller. Kopites will be hoping for an improvement from The Reds in the second half of the season, but it seems unlikely after news emerged recently that Rodgers has a further two publications in the pipeline: an erotic football novel ‘Fifty Shades of Joe Allen’, and sci-fi thriller ‘Suso.’

  2. Why Chicharito Deserves to be a Regular in Manchester United’s XI

    8th April 2010 was a day of stark contrast in Manchester United history. On the one hand, the Red Devils had been knocked out of the Champions League the day before, as they lost on away goals to Bayern München (a 3-2 win at Old Trafford proved insufficient to overcome a 2-1 loss in Germany). On the other hand, a virtually unknown Mexican striker nicknamed “little pea” was unveiled as a new Manchester United player.

  3. Lewis Holtby – Too Slow and Too Small

    With the January transfer window well under way one of the best deals of the window so far may not come to fruition until the summer. FC Schalke’s prized asset Lewis Holtby has agreed a £67,000 a week deal with Tottenham Hotspur and will move to the North London side on a free transfer at the start of the summer transfer window after failing to sign a new contract with the German club.

  4. Why Manchester United won’t run away with the Premiership title


    January 3, 2013 by Gabriel Sutton

    If you had to offer me a prediction now, as to who will win the title this season, I would be more than inclined to say Manchester United. They’ve got a seven point lead, they’ve beaten City on their own turf and are notoriously good at doing the business in the back-end of the season. 


    Having said that, I don’t think they’ll win the title with total ease. Man City will still have a big gain in terms of not playing matches in Europe in midweek, they’ve got a more solid defence and the spending power to invest in January. Here are some reasons why United may struggle to finish the job in the second half of the season.

  6. Why Arsene Wenger is one of the best managers in the world


    December 19, 2012 by Gabriel Sutton

    Previously, I wrote an article ‘The trouble with Arsenal’, which analyses whether or not Arsenal have become a selling club; the conclusion being an emphatic yes. Since their invincible season, the club have made a staggering £40 million net profit from transfers and have developed a habit of signing young talent, nurturing these players and then selling them on to slightly bigger clubs.

    I’d like to expand on this further, because a week ago on Saturday, Arsenal lost 2-0 at home to Swansea which caused for some fans to call for Arsene Wenger’s departure. In my personal opinion, I think it’s ludicrous to want to sack Wenger and Arsenal fans would be making a big mistake if they began to push any ‘Wenger out’ campaigns forward.
