    April 6, 2012 by Luke Hussey


    The last survey of coaching qualifications across Europe indicated that there are only 2,769 English coaches holding Uefa’s B, A and Pro badges, its top qualifications in England. Spain has 23,995, Italy 29,420, Germany 34,970 and France 17,588. These four nations have provided eight of the 12 finalists at all the World Cups and European Championships since 1998. England of course last appeared in a major final in 1966.

  3. Chelsea vs. Napoli: What to Expect in the Second Leg


    March 10, 2012 by Kyle Whitman


    Having been soundly beaten 3-1 by Napoli in Italy under former manager Andre Villas-Boas, Chelsea will have to come back from a two-goal first leg deficit at Stamford Bridge under the stewardship of caretaker manager Roberto Di Matteo if they’re to have a shot at lifting the Champions League trophy so coveted by owner Roman Abramovich. It’s vital to understand how Napoli got their first leg lead and the tactical battles that may play out in the second leg at Stamford Bridge.

  4. The Rise and Rise of FC Basel


    March 7, 2012 by Ben Mepsted


    I don’t think that at the beginning of this season anyone believed that FC Basel would make the last 16 of the Champions League, let alone be in pole position after the first leg. They are not a team full of household names and they are not Italian, Spanish or English and therefore do not get the attention that they deserve.
