Time may be running out but as deadline day looms, Tottenham are ticking off the areas that needed to be strengthened at the start of the summer. At least one centre-back was required and Spurs have signed two, bringing in Toby Alderweireld and Kevin Wimmer. An experienced central midfielder was also needed, plus at least one striker and an attacking midfielder, if not two. Nacer Chadli and Christian Eriksen lacked viable competition and cover last season, while Erik Lamela and…

In a self-congratulatory news conference, Platini and his secretary general Gianni Infantino proclaimed UEFA as pioneers in the fight against racism, leaders in tackling match-fixing and said they had brought financial sanity to European football.

UEFA had said its president would reveal campaign ideas and take questions at his annual meeting with international media in Monaco on the sidelines of the Champions League draw. ''I know why you all came and I know what you're interested in hasn't been discussed today,'' Platini said in French, closing a one-hour session by apologizing.

    28 Aug 2015 | 10:32 am
    Stoke City and West Brom have made disappointing starts to their seasons with neither side yet winning a game. This will be anything but a classic. Stoke look like the more settled side of the two and on paper have the edge in attack over West Brom. However Tony Pulis will be highly motivated against his former club and will be hoping his players can rebut criticism of their early form. Graham Searles Continue reading...

Aston Villa had their own scare against lower division opposition in midweek and have been inconsistent, but even in the games they have lost, they have been competitive. Rudy Gestede should be able to bully Sunderland’s fragile defence and create chances for himself and fellow attackers. Graham Searles Continue reading...

Having invested nearly £50m in players during this window Newcastle are adamant they have no intention of selling any key players. “We don’t need to sell and we don’t want to sell,” said McClaren who may offer a League debut to one time Arsenal target Florian Thauvin.

    Like most Arsenal fans, Miami Heat star Luol Deng acknowledges that the Premier League side are a stellar signing short of looking like title challengers. Gary Neville feels that reinforcements should be made in the centre of the park, but it’s not uncommon to hear it said that Arsenal lack options up front. Legendary Gunner Thierry Henry said himself that Olivier Giroud is not a top class forward and that Arsenal need a better quality player.

One of the deadliest forwards in the Premier League, Aguero can be seen here putting his endurance to the test in a manner that Usain Bolt and the Arsenal squad have before him. City fan might be tempted to moan about Aguero’s fitness with the side’s fortunes falling dramatically when he’s out injured. He’s started this season by getting one goal so far from three appearances as City state their intentions of being the Premier…

A tentative deal with the club to construct a privately financed stadium near Marlins Park, at the site of the old Orange Bowl. “Today’s meeting with Mayor Regalado was another positive step toward bringing a world-class soccer club to Miami,” the spokesperson said in a statement. “We’re still in the early planning stages and several viable options still exist,…

The club offered to fund stadium construction in exchange for property tax relief and a sales tax break building materials. But United was unable to close the deal with the state legislature before its 2015 session concluded in mid-May. MLS President and Deputy Commissioner Mark Abbott discussed the deadline with a local ESPN Radio station. Abbott felt it was worth going into what St. Paul…

    It has been a long time coming (at least it has felt that way) for Atlanta’s MLS team to reveal their name and branding. While the branding side of things will come in a couple weeks, we now have a better idea of what the team will be called when they hit the field in 2017. On Thursday, a report by SI‘s Brian Straus revealed that the team will, unfortunately, be named Atlanta United FC. Yes, the name ditches any cool or fun ideas to the curb and goes with a rather boring and annoying name. Not to mention we’ll likely have another United FC in a couple years when Minnesota joins…

The reality is MLS is a hot commodity right now.” He said there could be another franchise announcement for another city this week. McGuire was discussing his stadium proposal situation that has until July to sort itself out. But…

    Arsenal and the transfer market is a thorny, but absorbing subject. The manager has a reputation not so much for pinching pennies as clutching them lovingly to his bosom. It is proving difficult to shake off. Arsenal’s spending has spiked dramatically since commercial deals were renegotiated in 2013, but Wenger’s reputation for reluctance remains. Logically speaking, every single player in Arsenal’s squad was brought in by Wenger at some point, whether via a big money transfer or via the academy.

One stat, or fact, stood out: Arsenal gave the ball away 20 times in our own half, with every single starting outfield player guilty at some point during the match. There was no breakdown (sorry) of when these turnovers happened but I guess most of them were in the first period when Liverpool took advantage and would have scored but for the saves of Petr Cech and some last ditch defending from Francis Coquelin in…

    Paulinho didn’t score once in 15 Premier League appearances for Tottenham last season, but eight weeks after joining Guangzhou Evergrande, he did this. One of two things is happening here. Either he developed an intense hatred for Spurs during his two unsuccessful seasons there and is now fueled by that, or China has weaponized Paulinho. Or maybe China hates Spurs and that’s why they’ve weaponized Paulinho? I don’t know. But there’s definitely an intense revenge/Bionic Man angle at play here.

For a solid month, fans and pundits have tried to figure out the answer to this transfer window riddle to no avail. But now, Van Gaal has finally revealed that the surprise was the fact that the non-striker mystery striker has been on the team all along and that he is midfielder Marouane Fellaini. From the Guardian: Last year Fellaini scored seven times and Van Gaal is clear the 27-year-old can offer a threat in attack. “He can play in a 9 position and in a 10 but also 6…

The young striker immigrated to the UK as a child to escape the horrific Burundian Civil War that had tragically taken the life of his father in 1997. He has since gone on to represent England internationally at all youth levels from U16 through top U21 and this season will be looking to debut for the senior side. His progress, however, has been halted slightly by an ongoing transfer saga in which Tottenham Hotspur have been open about their admiration of the young striker. Spurs manager…

The Baggies simply couldn’t cope with the quick-footed former Barcelona man, despite their constant…

    Brazilian superstar Neymar da Silva Santos Júnior has been the subject of much speculation recently, as rumours of a possible transfer from Barcelona to Manchester United continue to circulate. A reported bid of £165m is being put together by Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward, which if it happened would shatter the world transfer record. After a highly successful season at Barca, and with president Josep Maria Bartomeu saying he wants Neymar to end his career at the Nou Camp, it’s looking that this may be a case of Neymar’s agents looking for a better deal…

Liverpool came to North London with a 100% record, having accrued successive 1-0 victories, while Arsenal came off the back of a hard-fought victory at London neighbours Crystal Palace. Despite the array of attacking talent on display from both sides, it was the two goalkeepers who stole the show. Both Arsenal’s Petr Cech and Liverpool’s Simon Mignolet were in superb form, saving brilliantly from Christian Benteke and Aaron Ramsey respectively. Ramsey could count himself very…

    Photo by Imaginechina/REX Shutterstock (4916133n) Karim Benzema has once again been linked with a move to Arsenal despite pledging his future to Real Madrid just last week. The former Lyon forward has been admired by Arsène Wenger and it has now been made clear that if Arsenal offer enough money and ‘fight’ for Benzema, they are in pole position to sign the £50 million rated Frenchmen. It is also believed that Benzema is not the only striker on Arsenal’s radar and that Edinson Cavani is being touted as an easier target. The Uruguayan is set to fly into London for a medical…

    Goalkeeper David de Gea seems to be determined to leave Manchester United following the breakdown in his relationship with manager Louis VAn Gaal. It is rumoured that he wants to leave Old Trafford to play for Real Madrid. De Gea’s determination to leave Old Trafford may be driven by his ambition to play for Real Madrid, but Sunday Mirror Sport can also reveal that the Spanish goalkeeper now feels his position at the club has been made untenable by the Van Gaal’s claim that he refused to play. A source close to De Gea said: “David just doesn’t get on with Van Gaal – and his…

What are your first impressions of Cobham? It’s a fantastic training ground, the facilities are amazing and the pitches are world class. It’s very good here.

    19 Aug 2015 | 7:50 pm
    The unpredictability of the Women’s Super League (WSL) is perhaps best illustrated by the dramatic fall of Birmingham Ladies. With just one game remaining last season, three clubs were still in the hunt for the WSL title. What followed was a day of twists and turns that provided entertainment for the neutrals and agony for the fans involved. As the events of the day unfolded a win would have been enough for Birmingham to lift the title. Unfortunately for the Blues they could only muster a 2-2 draw at home to Notts County Ladies. Birmingham had a golden chance to win the game as well.

    Despite being regarded the best defense in the league last season; conceding the least amount of goals, Chelsea were water-tight at the back, leaking huge 5 goals with only two games into the season. With the same back four who were lauded and the same manager who is pretty much known by his brilliance in adjusting his team defensively, how can things take an absolutely different path? The Blues’ back line was always the engine pushing them to achieve superb results in big games. For the last two seasons they sealed two great results out of the Eithad Stadium, the same place they got…

Town kick off their season away at Hull City and it will be interesting to see what changes he has made in readiness for the game. Powell has brought in five new additions to the squad, which now feels smaller but with more quality. The Huddersfield board had a good clear out at the end of last season, where they released a lot of players…

Youngsters Nathan and Danilo Pantic, as well as Bosnian goalkeeper Asmir Begovic, have all been brought in, however, for a combined fee that is dwarfed in comparison to the spending of rivals such as Manchester United, Manchester City and Liverpool. Mourinho’s position in the window would suggest that he is currently happy with the balance of the…

    It’s a strange world when £22m is not enough to sign a player a player of Saido Berahino’s ability. The 22-year-old is a fast-developing talent, certainly, but the recent melee between Tottenham Hotspur and West Bromwich Albion shows just how valuable a British passport is in the transfer market. Berahino, of course, did his best to force a move to White Hart Lane. He handed in a transfer request over the weekend and seemed to have prematurely decided that his time at The Hawthorns had run its course.

    They say a week is a long time in soccer and I’ll be among the first to admit that I thought the San Jose Earthquakes’ playoff hopes were all but extinguished just two weeks ago. The last time the Quakes played at Avaya Stadium, they banished the demons of a six match Major League Soccer losing streak; but just barely. A tight, 1-0 victory over the Colorado Rapids, the only team below the Quakes in the Western Conference at the time, wasn’t exactly a statement win, but it was a spark. As Clarence Goodson said afterward: “it’s good to break the streak and start a new one.” Just…

Perhaps the defining moment of Ferguson’s twenty-six years in charge of United was the Red Devils’ famous late comeback against Bayern…

    Welcome back to the Premier League. There are few bigger English classics than Arsenal versus Liverpool  and just three weeks into the new season, their meeting at the Emirates provided a memorable, perplexing thriller. There were thirty-four shots and six bookings, yet no goals. Each side sporadically exhibited flashes of brilliance but so many errors, misplaced passes and wayward shots were strewn across ninety minutes of football that neither side can look back on the draw without regrets. If the game wasn’t bizarre enough already, it somehow ended in a goalless stalemate when a…

    Callum Wilson’s first goal in the Football League seemed far too easy considering all that the young forward, twenty at the time, had put into it. In March 2013, Coventry City faced Colchester in a midweek League One fixture. Down 2-1, Wilson came on late in the second half and promptly took on his marker, Nigeria-born, one-time England C team international Magnus Okuonghae, down the right wing. With one step-over and scissor with his right foot and another scissor with his left, Wilson put Okuonghae off-balance to make room for a low finish into the bottom left corner to level the…

    I’m sure we all remember that Swansea managed to do the double over United last season. But that was then. We have a midfield now, and a pretty mean defensive record too. With Rooney back among the goals, hopefully he can go on one of his typical scoring runs now, starting at the Liberty. In fairness Swansea have made a strong start to the season and they should certainly not be underestimated. I’ve gathered together a few previews here from around the web, so if you’re planning to bet on the game these might be useful when you’re deciding where your money should go.

We have literally 0% chance of signing Neymar and the numbers being thrown about that he would cost £240million including his 5-year contract is laughable.

    While the origins of substitute players in football goes as far back as the early 1860's when organized English public school matches sporadically allowed teams to swap out injured players, it would take nearly 100 years before professional football even considered such a thing.Through much of football's history though no substitutes were allowed in a match, which often led to players having to stay on the pitch and soldier on if they were injured or fatigued, and occasionally left sides having to play short a player if someone was hurt to the point that they had to leave the pitch.On the…

City’s start is made even more impressive by the fact that they have already taken four more points – against Chelsea and Everton – than they did last season. Manuel Pellegrini’s future appeared under doubt in the summer, but the players appear to be fully behind him. City have played some fantastic football in the three games so far and the win over Everton was one of their most…

  • Player Analysis – Wayne Rooney vs Newcastle United

    Shantanu Ambekar
    26 Aug 2015 | 6:17 am
    Manchester United’s perfect start to the season ended as Newcastle United produced a battling display to secure their second point of the campaign. United dominated the game but failed to break the deadlock as Javier Hernandez and Chris Smalling came agonisingly close to scoring a late winner. Three games into the new season, the most encouraging part for the Red Devils is that they have not conceded a single goal even with David de Gea sitting in the stands, but the lack of firepower up front and the listless form of Wayne Rooney is a real worry. These flaws have become a recurring…

It is then necessary to look back at the transfer windows prior to this, to see how much have previous windows’ signings added to the Reds’ first eleven and whether they had actually improved the quality at Anfield. Over the past seven summers spanning the regimes of Rafael Benitez, Roy Hodgson, Kenny Dalglish and now Brendan…

    After a fairly good start to the season, Liverpool play their first Saturday fixture in the 2015/16 English Premier League tomorrow against West Ham United at Anfield. With 7 points from three games, including a draw away against Arsenal, most Anfield faithfuls have so far expressed satisfaction with the team’s performance. In particular, Liverpool’s defense, bolstered by the presence of Joe Gomez and Nathaniel Clyne in combination with Dejan Lovren and Martin Skrtel, has been praised a lot by fans.

We went up against the FA Cup holders and didn’t lose the game,  didn’t even concede a goal and that’s something we can be proud of. Sometimes even the games that only award a single point instead of all three can be more to the fans than the wins. If you’re too busy complaining that we didn’t win, then you’ve missed the “supporting” part of being a supporter.  It’s not about total…

It has to count too, Club Brugge will not be a really easy task, not many teams are these days in Europe.

    There is just under two weeks left of the summer transfer window and Spurs have played two games so far picking up just one point in the process. Spurs initially started this window well, with the acquisitions of defenders Kevin Wimmer, Kieran Trippier and Toby Alderweireld. The London club had conceded 53 goals in the Premier League last season and needed reinforcements at the back, they dealt with this issue nice and early.

    The ratio of the number of top quality strikers to the number of top level clubs in Europe has never been this abysmal. The reason for this seems multi-faceted though. The demand from a lead attacker to possess top notch overall qualities, the burgeoning revenues at the disposal of more and more clubs to fight aggressively for talents in the market, or the increasing rigors and combativeness in the modern game, all of these, have in some way, affected a severe dearth of top quality strikers in Europe.

    What did we learn from Manchester United’s defeat against PSG? Don’t know? We will give you ten Manchester United vs PSG Review 1.Despite what Van Gaal may say publicly, he has to realize that we need at least one great CB. 2. Matteo Darmian is the best of our summer signings. Already the best right-back we’ve had since Gary Neville. 3. Fellaini and Herrera would’ve been useful in this game, but were once again mysteriously absent. 4. Phil Jones will never be a CL-level defender and Blind is being badly misused at CB. Jones is for PL use only, while Blind’s…

    Tottenham have signed South Korean forward Son Heung-min from German club Bayer Leverkusen. The 23-year-old scored 29 goals in 87 appearances for Leverkusen having joined them from Hamburg in 2013. The deal, subject to work permit and international clearance, is reportedly worth £22m, and he will wear the number seven shirt for Spurs. Editor’s Note: Well thank fuck for that (excuse my bad language) We have another attacking player in at the club. To be perfectly honest this one has pretty much slipped under the radar as we hadn’t been linked with him before the news of the…

After the two legs of the Spanish Supercup ended in the first title for Athletic in 31 years following a 4-0 win over the Catalans in Bilbao and a 1-1 draw at the Nou Camp, it turned out to be third time lucky for Barça and a moral boosting win to start the season.Athletic went out of their way to ensure Barcelona had as little space to do any damage, particularly in the first half.

    Last night saw the return leg of the Spanish Supercup, which saw Athletic Bilbao visit the Nou Camp after their 4-0 home win against FC Barcelona. Faced with a huge task it was always unlikely that Barça would score the five goals necessary to take the title, while at the same time preventing Athletic from scoring, but a consolation prize might have been to at least win the home leg. But alas, it was not to be in a hard fought match that at least provided plenty of entertainment. It also saw Athletic Bilbao win their first title in 31 years.Barça came on looking for an early goal and the…
