    Earlier this week, Arsenal held a special Members’ Day at the Emirates Stadium in which fans came to watch the Gunners train ahead of the new season. One of the highlights of the day was a crossbar challenge, which featured the whole Arsenal squad. Before the general game began, Arsene Wenger showed off his talents by nailing his shot on the crossbar at the first attempt.

    29 Jul 2015 | 2:51 pm
    Manchester United’s quest to sign a new centre half appears to be returning closer to home, after the Red Devils’ advances to sign top talent from abroad have failed to achieve their aims. With Chris Smalling, Marcos Rojo, Phil Jones, and Jonny Evans as United’s four main centre-backs, it’s widely felt that Louis van Gaal needs to get better options at the heart of his defence. Indeed, Daley Blind has even been playing in that position during pre-season. Against that, Marca announced on Wednesday that Sergio Ramos has agreed to sign a new deal at Real Madrid, which…

    A new picture has come to light on Wednesday night, adding a fresh angle to the recent spat between Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho and Real Madrid coach Rafa Benitez. A quick synopsis of what’s happened. Wednesday started with fresh quotes from the Special One, hitting back at accusations from Rafa Benitez’s wife, Montserrat Seara, that her husband regularly cleans up Mou’s managerial “messes”. The Blues boss told the press: I think the lady needs to occupy her time and if she takes care of her husband’s diet she will have less time to speak about me. A fat joke. Seriously.

    On a day that MLS player salaries for 2015 were revealed, news broke out of Miami on Friday evening that suggest that David Beckham and his group are getting closer to a stadium agreement with the city. 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,…

    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.

    As I mentioned yesterday the presentation of Jose Mourinho’s somewhat inaccurate, but essentially harmless comments about Arsenal’s spending, were perfect for the press. Arsene Wenger was due to host a press conference of his own ahead of the Community Shield the very next day. Present those quotes with a snappy headline about ‘having a pop’ or ‘taking aim’ and you then provide yourself with the perfect angle to seek a rebuttal from the Arsenal manager. Then you can take whatever he said, regardless of how he said it, and use it to stoke the fires even…

    Morning all. You know we’re on the cusp of a new season when the headlines try to create dramas and tensions from very little. If you’re a regular reader of this site you’ll know that Jose Mourinho is far from my favourite person. If he could be trapped in a giant spinning mirror and sent into space like General Zod I’d be all for it. In fact, if somebody wanted to set up a Kickstarter to create that technology I’d happily donate. He does and says things which are tedious, irritating and hypocritical. But I’m struggling to get bent out of shape by the…

    Welcome to a brand new week folks, and one that kicks off with glorious, prestigious silverware. At long last the Emirates Cup is ours again. Not since 2010 when skipper Manuel Almunia lifted the trophy have we had the pleasure and distinction of holding aloft the cup which looks like a comedy sized paperweight. A 1-0 win over Wolfsburg sealed the deal for us – not quite as free-scoring and exciting as the win over Lyon but with so many changes that’s not a surprise. Not to mention the fact the opposition had some good players who played well and, of course, The Greatest Striker That…

As I said in the match report (which includes clips of the goals if you haven’t see them), ” … it looks like somebody washed a real away kit in charcoal then turned the contrast down by 75% before rubbing it with engine oil and the blood squeezed from nits that live on…

Mauricio Pochettino has still spent little under £20million on three players, with Toby Alderweireld’s arrival from Atletico Madrid costing £11.2m, Kevin Wimmer arrived from FC Koln for £4.9m and Kieran Tripper signed from Burnley for £3.4m. So it appears White Hart Lane chairman Daniel Levy isn’t interested in splashing the cash like he’s done over the last few summer windows. Though that hasn’t stopped the club being linked with the world and his wife…
  • Chelsea may have to pay £34m to land major target

    29 Jul 2015 | 12:21 pm
    Chelsea may have to pay as much as £34m to sign John Stones from Everton this summer after seeing a second bid for the defender knocked back, according to reports from The Express. The Blues followed up an initial £20m offer with a bid in the region of £26m, but the Toffees have held firm to keep hold of the ex-Barnsley man. However, reports claim that £34m may be enough to snap up the four-cap England international, who is thought of as one of the finest young talents in the county.

    It is readily accepted that good players do not necessarily make good managers. There is a long list of failed former greats who haven’t cut it in the dugout: from Bobby Charlton to Hristo Stoichkov, van Basten to Alan Shearer, much of it can be attributed to abrasive or troublesome personalities or indeed a complete lack thereof. As Brendan Rodgers knows, character is important for managers as well as players. Fortunately Aston Villa boss, Tim Sherwood is full of it. As a swashbuckling midfielder, he always had a decisive footballing brain and leadership qualities, captaining his Blackburn…

The Argentine playmaker has been heavily linked with the Red Devils in recent times, with the Old Trafford giants believed to have submitted an offer of around £17.7m for his signature. However, it looks as if Louis van Gaal will not be getting his man, with Biglia, according to reports, having pledged his future to the Rome side.

    Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is still expected to make at least one ‘marquee signing’ this summer. He’s already nabbed Petr Cech from London rivals Chelsea, which has led to many people claiming the Gunners have instantly become serious title contenders as a result. But surely Wenger needs two or three more reinforcements before he can truly mount a serious bid for Chelsea’s title? It’s no secret Arsenal are crying out for a world class goalscorer, while they’re still thought to be in the market for a defensive midfielder after missing out on Morgan…

    Stats are Everything

The trust-meter in Brendan Rodgers dropped to an all-time low after the 6-1 drubbing at the hands of Stoke City on the final day of what was considered a difficult season for the Reds last season. The problem was not that he was not getting the best out of his players, I would think. The problem was that he wasn’t getting the best out of the players he signed. What was he quite frankly thinking when he signed Rickie Lambert. I think he lost it slightly when he decided to play Raheem Sterling as a sole striker (and Adam Lallana vs Stoke City), when he had Rickie…

    So after months of wrangling Raheem Sterling has got his wish and its fair to say that Liverpool have too.The youngster is free to join rivals Manchester City in a staggering £49 million deal.Months have passed since the young Londoner first declared that he wasn't happy at Anfield, despite Liverpool under Manager Brendan Rodgers giving him the chance to play regular 1st team football at a very young age.We took a chance on him, developed him and now he wants to leave.That's fine, young man, take your chances and your wages at the Etihad and thanks for the forty-nine million.
  • STERLING SPITS OUT HIS DUMMY AGAIN

    Raheem Sterling and his agent are kicking up again.The 20-year old forward has declared that he will not sign a new contract worth £100,000 a week and wants to move away.He laughably accuses Liverpool of "bullying him into signing a new deal" and also claims that the club have failed to address the negative press he has received lately as his contract position has become very public news.Strange, didn't he give an interview to the BBC where he declared his intention to wait until the end of the season to discuss his Anfield future while also saying he was flattered by apparent interest from…

As fate would have it, Mignolet would be drafted back into the fold before the end of the month, with an unfortunate injury suffered by Jones at Burnley on…

  • Why The £49m Paid By Manchester City To Liverpool Could Make Sense

    Jagjeet Singh
    29 Jul 2015 | 1:35 pm
    This summer’s most talked about transfer so far has been Raheem Sterling’s move from Liverpool to Manchester City. The 20-year old Englishman’s services cost Manchester City a fortune. Having agreed wages of around £200,000-a-week, Sterling’s record breaking transfer of £49m makes him not only the most expensive U-21 player but also the the most expensive Englishman ever. Such a fee demands breathtaking performances week in week out and it remains to be seen if Sterling is worth all the effort. Well, at least, his talent is unquestionable but perhaps doubts still linger over the…

Apart from the Naples base side, their Seria A rivals Fiorentina were also trying had to secure his services, making it a complicated story. The Florence based club was trying to pay a very small loan fee upfront and then a slightly higher fee later, which would help them sign their target.

The Italian international’s fee is believed to be around £12.7million and after two initial bids from United were rejected, it is a case of 3rd time lucky as it was accepted by the Torino executives. Darmian is by far Torino’s prized asset after the transfers of Alessio Cerci and Ciro Immobile in the past couple of seasons. However, it looks like their squad is once again going to be struck with the loss of a key player as the versatile…

Their problem seemed to have fallen in the summer transfer window again, as they failed to strengthen the squad significantly and ended up falling to a very strong Chelsea side. However, this shows the strength of Chelsea more than the failures of Manchester City as we entered 2015. After the New Year’s Day games, City and Chelsea were tied at the top of the table with the same goal difference and goals scored. Having spent much of the season in…

    Earlier last month, Manchester United completed the signing of the PSV Eindhoven forward Memphis Depay on four-year contract, with an option of an extra year. United announced in May that they had reached a deal to sign the Dutch sensation for a fee in the region of £25m.

By genuine, I mean the sort of depth that doesn't mean Lorik Cana has to play at centre back, Craig Gardner at right back or Santiago Vergini in general. Depth that would mean a couple of injuries couldn't derail our season or mean that, god forbid, a substitution can be made that would impact a football match.

Every single player in Spain has a buyout clause, it's required by law. There's a big difference between them.A release clause allows a player to be bought by a club when that club offers the sum in the clause, the selling club needs to accept the bid. An example of this…
