  1. Special: Top 11 Most Loyal Footballers


    August 4, 2013 by Sean Charles


    For me, loyalty means more than just staying put at the same team for a whole career. For loyalty to be true, it has to be tested.  And I see similar lists with the likes of Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, John Terry, Iker Casillas, Carles Puyol, Javier Zanetti, Paolo Maldini to name a few.  Although they are/were great players, they played for some of the biggest teams on the planet and in turn won just about everything there is to win.  They sacrificed very little at club level, it is difficult to see where each of them could’ve gone to have more stellar careers.  And, as a result of this, I won’t be including these types of players in the list as their loyalty never seemed to be truly tested.  The players I chose are the ones I believe stuck by their club despite knowing it would mean losing out on something bigger, whether that be silverware or just the chance to be seen and remembered by a wider audience.

  3. The race for 4th in the EPL


    October 25, 2012 by Gabriel Sutton

    I’d like to talk a little bit about the race for that last Champions League spot, because I think it’ll be a very exciting one to watch – there are about 5 teams that could potentially take it. I think it’s pretty obvious that Chelsea, United and City will make up the top three and will finish approximately 10 points above the rest.
    If I was putting money on it, I would say Tottenham and Arsenal are the main contenders, just because Tottenham are now looking pretty strong under AVB, and Arsenal have never finished outside the top four, at least not recently. But then David Moyes has kept the likes of Baines and Fellaini happy at Everton when either of them could quite easily get into the team of a title-winning team, like Man Utd or Chelsea. They have got a fantastic team spirit and work ethic there, and a goalscorer in Jelavic. Everton could fancy their chances and let’s not forget they currently occupy that 4th spot. Liverpool have got some tough games coming up but I think, if he’s given time, Brendan Rodgers can instill a lot of confidence in those young players, plus Newcastle haven’t started great played some tough games and are still getting used to playing on Thursday night. They’ve got an outside chance. I genuinely think the chase for fourth spot could go down to 2 or 3 teams on the last day.
    So I’d like to have a look at these five teams, how they’ve started, the squad they’ve got, tactics, all that sort of stuff.

  4. Player Profile: Luuk de Jong

    Luuk De Jong

    2009-10 Eredivisie Champions and 2010-11 runners-up FC Twente have failed to reach the Champions League this season. Their league campaign hasn’t been up to the standards of the last two seasons. However Luuk De Jong has established himself as one of the most promising youngsters by scoring 30 goals in 46 games for Steve McClaren’s FC Twente.

    Brother of Siem de Jong, Luuk was born on 27th August 1990, in Aigle Switzerland. He started at De Graafschap and rose up through the ranks of the youth squad. He played one senior year and that was enough for FC Twente to snap him up at the start of the 2009/2010 season. Three years later, he’s banging in the goals and attracting worldwide attention.
