    27 Feb 2015 | 1:22 am
    The ESPN FC crew debate whether or not Tottenham's Harry Kane should have been included in the Top 25 players under age 25. Tottenham striker Harry Kane has told Sport his style of play is a mixture of both Alan Shearer and Teddy Sheringham. Kane has become a first-team regular for Spurs this season, scoring 24 goals in 37 games in all competitions, and he is now widely expected to receive a first call-up to the England squad next month. His remarkable run of form has also led to comparisons with former England stars Shearer and Sheringham, and Kane said: "I can see a bit of both in…

  • Vincenzo Montella hails keeper Neto after Europa League win over Spurs

    27 Feb 2015 | 1:16 am
    ESPN FC's Mark Donaldson breaks down how Tottenham crashed out of the Europa league courtesy of two second half Viola goals. Fiorentina coach Vincenzo Montella praised goalkeeper Neto for his part in Thursday's Europa League victory over Tottenham Hotspur -- his first appearance since revealing he will leave in the summer. Neto kept a clean sheet as the Serie A club won 2-0 at home to seal a 3-1 aggregate victory over the Londoners, who take on Chelsea in the Capital One Cup final on Sunday. Since revealing his decision to leave earlier this year, Brazilian Neto has played second…

    ESPN FC's Mark Donaldson breaks down how Tottenham crashed out of the Europa league courtesy of two second half Viola goals. Second-half goals from Mario Gomez and Mohamed Salah propelled Fiorentina past Tottenham into the Europa League round of 16. Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino called their upcoming Europa League match against Fiorentina a cup final as they hope to advance to the next stage. No English side had ever scored away to Fiorentina, so Spurs knew it was never going to be easy. But even in his darkest moments, manager Mauricio Pochettino can't have imagined…

    Second-half goals from Mario Gomez and Mohamed Salah propelled Fiorentina past Tottenham into the Europa League round of 16. Roberto Soldado's embarrassing mistake was the "key" moment in Tottenham's Europa League exit, but Mauricio Pochettino had no regrets about playing the misfiring striker ahead of Harry Kane. Having arrived in Florence with the last-32 clash level at 1-1, the Spurs head coach made seven alterations with Sunday's Capital One Cup final against Chelsea in mind.

    There will be two English managers on the sidelines when Newcastle United host Aston Villa at St James' Park on Saturday. John Carver's Newcastle United (8-8-10) lost 5-0 to Manchester City last weekend, which won't have helped the poisonous mood amongst a fan base who have never really taken to their caretaker boss. It has been hit-and-miss for the Magpies under Carver - while the City defeat ended a three-game unbeaten run in league play, it also ensured the Tyneside club have just one win since the departure of Alan Pardew at the end of December. Aston Villa would take that sort of recent…

    Spanish tabloid TV show El Chiringuito de Jugones reported on Thursday night that David De Gea is looking for a way out of Manchester United. Earlier in the week, Spanish paper AS went to print with news that David De Gea’s relationship with his manager Louis van Gaal has broken down. AS reporter Manu Sainz claimed that the pair haven’t spoken for months and he brought up van Gaal’s refusal to praise De Gea as proof of their bad relationship. AS also reported that Manchester United have already offered De Gea a new whopping €10m a year deal whilst Real Madrid are monitoring the…

    Chelsea have announced a new commercial sponsorship deal with a company few have ever heard of from Japan. The Yokohama Rubber Company, a company who make tyres for cars, have agreed a five-year shirt deal with Jose Mourinho’s side.  According to the BBC, the shirt deal is worth £40m-per-year, meaning that Chelsea should earn £200m from the arrangement. Chelsea have lauded the new deal on their club website, noting it to be the biggest commercial deal in the club’s history.

  • Mauricio Pochettino says Roberto Soldado was ‘unlucky’ with his horror miss at Fiorentina [Video]

    26 Feb 2015 | 11:44 pm
    Tottenham crashed out of the Europa League on Thursday night as they lost 2-0 at Fiorentina. Mario Gomez and Chelsea loanee Mohamed Salah scored the second half goals for the Viola, while Spurs should have taken the lead in the opening 45 minutes when a golden opportunity fell the way of striker Roberto Soldado. Clearly bereft of confidence, the Spaniard decided to try to thread a pass to Nacer Chadli when through one-on-one, only for the under-hit ball to be easily gathered by Fiorentina goalkeeper Neto. Cue the Loldado jokes. After the match Mauricio Pochettino was asked…

Last weekend, in the 2-1 defeat at Swansea, Dutch international RVP left Wales on crutches whilst his right foot was covered by a plastic protective boot. The Mirror and the Sun join forces on Friday to give an update on Robin van Persie’s health situation, and the red-tops agree that the striker is set to miss the next four Man United matches with an ankle problem. If true, that would mean van Persie would miss games against…

  • Work stoppage on the way for MLS?

    Drew Epperley
    23 Feb 2015 | 8:57 am
    The last couple of weeks have been rather crazy. Now as Major League Soccer is heading into their final two weeks of the preseason, the thought of a strike or work stoppage is really starting to sink in. Players want free agency and none of them seem willing to budge on it. ESPNFC.com has a report up this morning that makes that thought even more evident. Never mind the discussions about minimum salaries and the salary cap. Without getting into specifics, an MLS source indicated over the weekend that MLS is committed to increasing both. Rather, it is the diametrically opposed views on free…

The city of Las Vegas published this letter that was sent to them: Mayor Goodman provided the following statement in response to the news: “Of course I am disappointed that the MLS did not select Las Vegas for an expansion team in the 2017 or 2018 seasons.

Several clubs have jumped on board with filling out their own USL PRO teams in 2015, following the LA Galaxy’s model from last year. With no MLS Reserve League expected to operate in 2015, other teams will continue to partner with existing USL PRO clubs. There are 12 affiliations between the two leagues in that respect as of today. Here are the teams currently announced as competitors in USL PRO’s 2015 campaign: MLS-operated clubs (8): LA Galaxy II…

    Here's my wrap-up on how Club America took care of bidness against Saprissa in Costa Rica. I've been to the Monster's Cave, back when I lived in Costa Rica during part of my college years. It's a concrete cave of a stadium, but I always thought of it as small. I mean, I've been to Azteca, which is huge. But it gets wild there when the fans fill it up. They get loud. But all the fan support couldn't push Saprissa past an Aguilas squad which has found its form this season. Saludos Costa Rica "Odiame más"— Gustavo Matosas (@Mato_Matosas) February 26, 2015

    The Champions League returned to North London this week after the winter sabbatical we were back down to the bare knuckle business of knockout football, albeit with our noses bloodied and our glass jaw exposed. Arsenal under the lights, the ear splitting falsetto of the theme tune before kickoff, the crisp, sense softening kiss of continental lager in far flung town squares. There is much to enjoy about the Champions League (usually), which long ago left international football as a wheezing dot on the horizon as football’s pinnacle. It is not difficult to explain or understand the appeal of…

    Match report – By the numbers – Player ratings – Video We’ve had some inauspicious nights in Europe before, but last night is surely up there with the most disappointing and dispiriting of them all. Anyone who thought Monaco were going to be an easy touch obviously wasn’t paying attention to what they do, but that we made it so easy for them was Wenger’s Arsenal at its self-destructive worst. Having scored just 4 goals in the group stages, they got 3 last night meaning that for us to go through we’ve got to do at least that when we visit them in a few…

The stuff about Arsene Wenger facing his old club is a nice little sideshow, but that’s all it is. Obviously the game will have some emotional significance for him, but it’s a matter of work for the rest. We have played them recently, but a 1-0 defeat in the Emirates Cup in August is more or less irrelevant as it was pre-season and their goalscorer that day, Falcao, is…

    (Chelsea FC) Chelsea have announced a club record shirt sponsorship deal with Yokohama Rubber reportedly worth £200 million over the next five years. Though the deal doesn’t begin until next season, the influx of FFP friendly cash has already been earmarked for several key areas. Here’s a breakdown of how the money will be divided up… As you can see, the largest chunk (95%) will be spent on Jose Mourinho’s FA fines for his assortment of conspiracy theories, referee insults, and refusals to speak to the press. These fines will only increase in both size and frequency…

After Brisbane’s Adam Sarota fell to the ground while trying to keep Fejzullahu from getting to the ball, the Beijing player attempted to take a shortcut over Sarota’s vital organs in reaching his desired destination.

    Manchester City’s defeat to Barcelona in the first leg of the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 on Tuesday was deja vu for most City supporters. Here are 7 reasons why Manchester City keeps getting exposed in the Champions League: 1- Tactical Naivety Manchester City has built a deep squad to compete on multiple fronts in domestic competition.

The English flag is being flown the highest by Everton, who are currently 12th in the Premier League table. Why can a team like Manchester City look so dominant on a Saturday and look so poor three days later? Is it squad depth? Tactical naivety? Why has this become such a consistent narrative?

    A FIFA task force’s recommendation to avoid Qatar’s summer heat by pushing the start of the 2022 World Cup to November has ignited a feud between soccer’s world governing body and the sport’s top professional leagues and players.  The World Cup has always been played during the Northern Hemisphere’s summer but in Qatar that would mean dealing with temperatures well above 100 degrees.

  • Saurez Double Help Magnificient Barca beat Manchester City | Barca - 2, Manchester City - 1

    24 Feb 2015 | 7:58 pm
    Last night at the Etihad Stadium in the City of Manchester, Barca showed once again that when they lift their game there won't be much the opposition could do about; may be apart from just playing the part. Luis Enrique's boys went in to this match with a bit of self-doubt; or may be the self-doubt was in the mind of the fans. Either way one cannot deny that the defeat at the hands of Malaga at home would have definitely increased the pressure. So to come out and play such emphatically at the stadium of the defending English Premier League Champions was nothing short of magnificent.

    A number of the times I have been forced to eat my word, but I have to admit here that it never happened to me this quickly. In my last post (Preview to Manchester City vs Barca clash) I wrote how City have conceded ground to Chelsea and us have gained in their respective title race. Now with Chelsea dropping point in England and Barca losing in Spain, we may most probably go in to midweek game with no difference in domestic situation for these teams. Funny enough if Manchester City win tonight we may go into the midweek clash with momentum on their side. Now that's what we call the…

    Complacency is my enemy. Trent Reznor Why would I start this article with a quote on Complacency? Because there is no better way to start this discussion in any other way. The sense of confidence this Barca side has been able to instill on us in recent times have raised the belief in the team a lot higher. With such belief comes the danger of complacency. Especially when you are up against a team who could only win one of their last five matches, you are bound to be complacent. Add to this the form of the opposition. The new powerhouse from the city of Manchester has not been in top form in…

    FC Barcelona took a huge step to yet another Copa del Rey final with a very well fought 3-1 victory against Villareal. The Yellow submarine who has been in some sensational form recently found themselves at the end of an onslaught from Barca at the Camp Nou. To their credit their tactics was completely different from the team which played against us recently. The idea was to get away from Camp Nou with minimum damage. But Barca boys had completely different plans. Lionel Messi opened the scoring from a delightful Saurez assist, followed by Iniesta and Pique. The only goal for Villareal came…

    Luis Enrique and his boys were not going to let it happen once again. The last time they saw the League leaders Real Madrid drop points, they returned the favour by losing their match also. Luis Enrique had to receive a fair share of criticism for the strategy employed in that match against Celta at the Camp Nou. But everyone knew that he wasn't going to take any chance this time around. The result, a convincing 5-2 victory against Athletic Bilbao at one of the most difficult stadium in La Liga, especially for Barca. A visit to San Mames does not make Barca fans comfortable, actually it…

Arsenal will have to overcome a two goal deficit to progress to the last 8 of the Uefa Champions League, following their 3-1 defeat to Monaco in the first leg of the last 16 tie at the Emirates Stadium last night. History isn’t on Arsenal’s side in losing a home leg by two goals and still progressing to the next round in Europe’s premier club competition. The last side to achieve that feat in were Ajax way back in 1969. Ajax lost 3-1 at home to Benfica in the first leg of their European Cup quarter-final, before winning by the same score in Lisbon.

All Arsenal’s familiar failings were given airing as Monaco took a firm grip on the tie. Monaco took advantage of a deflected shot to take the lead in the 38th minute, with a 25 yard effort from Geoffrey Kondogbia flying past David Ospina off Per Mertesacker into the net. It was a huge slice of luck for Monaco who had weathered a bright start from Arsenal. Danny Welbeck spurned an early chance to give Arsenal the lead…

    Arsenal’s January target Cheick Tiote is tipped to miss the rest of the season for Newcastle United, after picking up an injury at the African Cup of Nations, according to reports from the Daily Mail. The 28-year-old was on the verge of a move to the Emirates during the previous window, but Arsene Wenger put a halt to his switch. Tiote was offered to the Gunners for a fee of £12million, but they were hoping to sign him for less, eventually ending the potential transfer.

    Iniesta has yet to register a goal or an assist in La Liga this season but is that a sign of a decline or a switch in mentality? A lot has been made of Barça's number eight's stats this season. With zero league goals or assists, from the outside looking in, you could be forgiven for thinking he is enduring a poor season. Last season in the league he notched three goals with seven assists and the season before that he scored the same amount of goals but with an impressive sixteen assists. During that 2012/13 season, Iniesta regularly had Messi, David Villa and Pedro ahead of him on the field.

    Because apparently, we actually have to confirm things like this when the British media is involved Just when you thought that British media couldn't plunge to a new low, along came FC Barcelona's UEFA Champions League Round of 16 tie against Manchester City. Prior to the match, we were treated to a plethora of under-handed, short-sighted reporting -- more on that later this evening -- and after the match was all said and done, another fresh, steaming barrage of tabloid bullsh*t was sent our way. After his brace secured a Blaugrana victory and ultimately emphasised what had been his best…

    26 Feb 2015 | 12:29 am
    Having edged out the Turkish giants in the first leg at home thanks to Mario Balotelli’s controversial spot-kick, Liverpool will arrive at the stadium of Istanbul tomorrow hoping to hold/enhance that slender one-goal advantage.  With that historic win that saw Liverpool beat AC Milan in 2005 to lift the prestigious UEFA Champions League trophy, the Kop will return to the Ataturk stadium for the very first time in almost 10 years with the stakes very much different this time round. The side’s little magician in Coutinho will miss the trip to Turkey, having started 19 consecutive…
  • Consistent Inconsistency | Gerrard’s Last Merseyside Derby?

    lawliming
    7 Feb 2015 | 7:00 pm
    A bore draw. Haven’t had many of those this season. Liverpool did their usual thing. Held the ball well, but nothing productive in that final third. It was a game that was, quite frankly, difficult to watch. Good chances were scarce & the service from out wide and the middle was mediocre at best. Strangely, Rodgers decided to give Steven Gerrard the attacking role, opting for playing Henderson in a position which he hasn’t featured too often in, that ball winning midfielder role next to Lucas Leiva. Daniel Sturridge recorded around half an hour in his road to recovery, and…

    An FA Cup Fourth Round that saw heavyweights Manchester City, Swansea City, Southampton, Chelsea and Tottenham all collapse to underdogs, Liverpool fans should remain upbeat following their team’s goalless draw against Bolton as a win at Greater Manchester in next month’s replay will mark the Reds as genuine contenders for the trophy. It wasn’t an exceptional display from Liverpool on this occasion, with Bolton grabbing the headlines and taking plenty of credits for keeping a team that boasts the pace and trickery of Raheem Sterling and Philippe Coutinho at bay.

    Steven Gerrard, being iconic and inspirational at best, demonstrated what the team would lack in his absence come next season with a majestic display to lead Liverpool to a 2-1 victory over AFC Wimbledon in the FA Cup. The Liverpool skipper put his team in the driver’s seat just 12 minutes into the game after directing a header past AFC Wimbledon goalkeeper James Shea into the bottom corner. However, AFC Wimbledon were handed an unlikely equaliser when Adebayo Akinfenwa was first to react to a loose ball thanks to Simon Mignolet’s misjudgement. When you’re in a team staring…

    Everton, 4-1 up from the first leg, got a fright in the opening 15 minutes as Young Boys went 1-0 up and hit the bar. But the hosts settled and fired three goals before the break to seal their status as the only British club left in the competition.Young Boys started brightly and they shocked Goodison after 12 minutes. From a corner, Everton failed to clear and the ball fell to Sekou Sanogo who reacted quickest to poke past Howard.And it was almost two just eight minutes later.

    Was Mario Balotelli right to take and score Liverpool's penalty against Besiktas?Thankfully, he scored in the 85 minute to give Liverpool a victory otherwise, he would have been crucified.Jordan Henderson, as acting Captain was nominated in the event of any penalty's being awarded, however the more experienced Italian forward gently insisted that he was the man for the job and 40,000 kopites duly rejoiced when he scored to eventually win this tough game for Liverpool.So, debate over right?WAS BALOTELLI RIGHT TO TAKE THE PENALTY?

    It’s been quite a year for João Mário. Just over twelve months ago, the then 20-year-old Sporting Lisbon prospect was sent on loan to fellow Portuguese top flight club Vítoria de Setúbal. It was felt he had outgrown the club’s B-team and a more advanced level was required to develop his precocious talent. The decision was fully vindicated as Mário enjoyed a fabulous half season, making himself an undisputed starter and helping his new team turn around their season. Vitória were fighting the threat of relegation when Mário joined, but finished the season 7th, narrowly missing out on…

Maybe it was Jose Mourinho’s sweet talking ability but to get £50 million for the ‘defender’ David Luiz still remains one of the greatest deals ever in history of football. Jokes apart, the club have had a history of getting good young talent, loaning them out and then later on selling them for massive profits. Some of the more recent examples are Romelu Lukaku and Thorgan Hazard, who were bought for rather low amounts of money but were sold for massive profits after being…

    When the English Premier League season started, the play of Chelsea resembled a gladiator that had just been unleashed in the arena. No team seemed to be able to get around the Blues and their dominant style of play. While success has become more of a standard to Mourinho, one team found their weakness and managed to steal a win at the formidable Stamford Bridge. None other than London rivals, Tottenham Hotspur. From then on, Chelsea have looked as fragile as any other team in the league. Even though they have kept up with their winning ways, they seemed shaky and other teams have recognised…

  • Which Of Chelsea’s Loan Stars Can Impress Next Season?

    admin
    12 Aug 2014 | 2:50 am
    The latest piece of Chelsea transfer news involves the Spanish midfielder Oriel Romeu who has been loaned out to Stuttgart for the whole of the 2014-15 campaign. The 22 year old spent last season at Valencia and in his three years at Stamford Bridge he has only made 22 league appearances. Romeu is so far just one of ten players loaned out by Jose Mourinho and it would be no surprise if further squad members left on a similar arrangement before the start of the campaign. But why does the club buy and farm out on such an extensive scale and which of the current loanees can recover to make their…

    Jonny Evans once led many Manchester United fans to believe that he would be one of the defenders forming the new center back pairing to replace that of Vidic and Ferdinand. Eventually, when time came for the golden pair to be replaced things did not turn out as predicted. From a potential world class to nothing but a flop in the ongoing season Jonny Evans has performed at levels defining a new low. The defeat to MK Dons was probably one of the most depressing of the lot. Jonny Evans is nothing but a mere shadow of the player he was two years ago. A string of good performances on loan for…

    Manchester United beat Stoke City in yesterday’s encounter to move within one point of third-placed Southampton. United were tested at times but came through with the win thanks to another inspired display from their goalkeeper David De Gea.

    If there is any club which has taken full advantage of FFP and the loan system in England, it has to be Chelsea. Maybe it was Jose Mourinho’s sweet talking ability but to get £50 million for the ‘defender’ David Luiz still remains one of the greatest deals ever in history of football. Jokes apart, the club have had a history of getting good young talent, loaning them out and then later on selling them for massive profits. Some of the more recent examples are Romelu Lukaku and Thorgan Hazard, who were bought for rather low amounts of money but were sold for massive profits after being…

Today, his first competitive match against his former club, AS Monaco, could not have gone any worse. As Dimitar Berbatov, forever in Arsenal’s nightmares, put it after the match, Monaco simply “wanted to win more.” An utterly damning statement whatever the situation, but considering Monaco represented Arsenal’s best chance to progress to the…

  • Who Is This 19-Year Old Liverpool Whiz Kid Knocking The English Senior Team’s Doors?

    26 Feb 2015 | 11:47 pm
    Visit SoccerSouls If you’re an avid Liverpool fan, you sure have to keep your eyes peeled for the youngsters coming through the famed Academy of yours. Raheem Sterling, the highly reputed young Englishman was the last starlet to dazzle the Anfield faithful with his flair and trickery and chip in with goals and assists in a side overshadowed with the contributions of both Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge. 17 year old Jordan Rossiter became the youngest ever Liverpool player to score for the senior side last year and by the looks of it, there’s no shortage of talent coming through from…

City are title challengers while Liverpool are closing in on a top four spot. A win for Liverpool would peg Manchester City back in their bid for the title and would propel them into a very favorable spot to fight for the UCL spot. If City manage to get the better of the Reds, they would be able to reduce the gap at the top to only 2 points with Chelsea not participating in the Premier League this weekend due to their Capital One Cup final against Spurs.

    It is the first time in a while I’ve not been able to bring myself to watch the highlights of our defeat against Swansea City last weekend. It hasn’t helped that we’re also in the period where the European competitions return to the fray and we’re agonisingly watching the likes of Chelsea and Manchester City enjoy them fantastic Champions League nights that we’re so used to possessing. Instead, I’m going to turn my attention to next Saturday’s match where we hope to mark February off with a win. Anything other than a win is unthinkable at this moment in time and I’m sure…

    Our unconvincing first half performance was turned around in the second half despite falling behind in the 47th minute. Goals from Ander Herrera, Marouane Fellaini and Wayne Rooney earned us a quarter-final match against Arsenal at Old Trafford which is the stand out tie in the FA Cup quarters. This year’s FA Cup has been full of upsets with the likes of Manchester City and Chelsea being knocked out to lower league opposition and we were given a fright by the League 1 side. Preston’s manager, Simon Grayson, was on the winning side the last time he faced Manchester United as he…

    9 Feb 2015 | 8:51 am
    Reading the tabloids this morning was pretty unpleasant. Hearing Sam Allardyce label our tactics of long ball was ironic to say the least considering the ex-Bolton manager has been known for many years to simply punt the ball long and challenge every ball aerially hoping for something to materialise. The worrying factor is that he wasn’t far wrong, we played 30 more long balls than West Ham on Sunday and Louis Van Gaal admitted that United had to resort to using the power amongst the team as opposed to the creativity of the flair players. It simply didn’t happen in the attacking thirds…

    You would have to forgive a few fans for thinking the 3-1 curse may strike again against Leicester but this time we managed to seal the victory with the 3-1 score line. At the King Power Stadium we dramatically caved in from 3-1 up to lose 5-3 and spark huge doubts into the defensive tactics that Louis Van Gaal was attempting to drill into the United players. This time in a very attacking 4-1-3-2, Louis Van Gaal will have been very pleased with their first half display. Robin Van Persie partnered Falcao upfront and both were on the score sheet. An attacking trio of Wayne Rooney, Adnan Januzaj…

    After this weekend’s shocking set of results in the 4th round of the FA Cup, maybe our 0-0 draw with Cambridge United wasn’t quite as bad as we thought? Somehow, I don’t think many of us believe that. On a weekend where Chelsea were stunned by Bradford and our neighbours City were also beaten on their own patch by Middlesbrough, the FA Cup could be a piece of silverware well within our grasp and realistically, our only hope of sealing a trophy this campaign. There wasn’t to be any undermining lower league sides this time by Louis Van Gaal. After the 4-0 embarrassment to MK Dons in the…

    While the red part of Merseyside has been the focus of much media scrutiny and speculation this season, it has been a testing period for both of the area’s top flight clubs. While Liverpool have dominated much of the headlines, from the sale of Luis Suarez to club legend Steven Gerrard’s impending departure via their early exit from the Champions League, it has also been a challenging time for neighbours Everton and their manager Roberto Martinez. It was a new era when Martinez was appointed manager at Goodison Park just under two years ago, with the former Wigan and Swansea boss…

    Chelsea remained five points clear at the top of the Premier League table but surrendered their 100% home league record in a 1-1 draw with title rivals Manchester City. In the absence of talismanic striker Diego Costa and playmaker Cesc Fabregas, Chelsea struggled to punish City when they had the chance, yet they will be satisfied with a point. Loic Remy led the line for Chelsea with Costa suspended and Ramires replaced Fabregas, who was injured. However, the majority of the pre-match talk was centred around Frank Lampard and his return to Stamford Bridge. Chelsea’s record goalscorer…

    Once upon a time, Steven Gerrard, that unbending symbol of Scouse excellence, appeared destined to complete his playing career on the adoring Anfield stage. In the world of football, with its flexible loyalty and ruthless sense of expediency, the sight of one professional remaining a fixture at a leading European club is increasingly rare. That Gerrard has endured, his place in the Liverpool midfield rarely in question, over the course of 17 years and 500 games is a testament to the former England captain’s sustained and singular brilliance.

  • Will United ever bag this German star?

    Adrian Abraham
    26 Feb 2015 | 11:00 am
    Ruud Gullit has revealed that Louis van Gaal was desperate to sign Mats Hummels over the summer and that the manager is “crazy” about the German International. Van Gaal struggled to attract quality central defenders over the summer and Hummels is exactly what Manchester United need to solve their defensive woes. But after, it seems, years of tracking the centre-back, will United ever complete a deal for the German star? The Red Devils are expected to launch a summer bid for Hummels having failed in their attempts last summer. However, they must go all out in their attempt to sign the…

    Lionel Messi’s penalty miss and subsequent follow up howler against Manchester City last night could perhaps be considered an embodiment of the current state of his career. Dethroned as the world’s greatest by Cristiano Ronaldo, without a single trophy last season as both sides of Madrid reigned supreme, the diminutive Argentinian has often cut a forlorn figure as he struggles to re-capture past glories. He has not been helped, of course, by his team’s recent fall from grace. The Catalan giants were simply unbeatable at one stage, with the irresistible brand of football and incessant…

    Barcelona’s quest for new signings doesn’t appear to be stopping anytime soon. The Catalonian giants, who were handed a transfer embargo by FIFA in 2014, are still looking for targets to strengthen their already impressive roster. This includes German standout Lars Bender, who has been having a breakout season at Bayer Leverkusen. But Barca aren’t the only club looking at the midfielder. Arsenal, who are looking for more depth to their midfield, is also scouting the German international. But it seems the Gunners are set to lose out on another quality player to Barca, but are willing…

It would be wrong of me to say it all started in the 69th minute of the game at Stamford Bridge between Chelsea and Burnley because as Jose Mourinho rightly stated, there were three incidents in the 30th, 33rd and 43rd minutes that all had a major impact on the games proceedings.

    Real Madrid defender Rafael Varane has been linked with both Manchester United and Chelsea. According to The Daily Mirror, Varane is becoming unsettled at Madrid because of his limited first team opportunities, with Pepe and Sergio Ramos mostly keeping him out. This has reportedly put both Jose Mourinho and Louis van Gaal on high alert over the possible availability of the promising young defender. But would Varane be the right fit for the two English clubs? For Chelsea, it is a strange one.  Mourinho has historically favoured a more physical type at centre half than Varane. The Frenchman…

The Race for competing in European competition next season is ON. Even a fifth place finish qualifies a team for Europa League.

Not the best way to qualify  for something, but at least our European campaign continues for a longer while. Thrown up against a team who we had previously beaten 8-0 at Anfield, we had some confidence about how many goals we’d score as we would surely win against Besiktas.

    For the first time Swansea completed a league double over the Red Devils with a 2-1 win at the Liberty Stadium. To make matters worse for United fans Van Persie left the stadium on crutches and they will no doubt be waiting with bated breath to see how long he will be out of the game. Much is being made of the Swans win specifically with regard to United’s poor defensive showing, however it is important to not that this is only the second time Manchester United have lost in twenty games. It was way back in November I was last lamenting a United loss. As for this game, it was the exciting…

With Bradford pulling off perhaps the biggest cup upset in recent years with a dramatic come back to beat Chelsea 4 -2, fans of the Red Devils will hope to avoid embarrassment at the hands of Cambridge United. Jose Mourinho famously claimed it would be a ‘disgrace’ if his highly paid, world beaters were beaten by the lower league side.

    Radamel Falcao has been the subject of many newspaper headlines in the past few weeks. The forward cost a staggering £6million for a season long loan from Monaco and his future has been uncertain at best, with reports allegedly emanating from Old Trafford that he may already be on his way out. The Colombian striker reportedly earns £265,000 a week but with a return of just 3 goals in 13 appearances questions are going to be asked about his value for money. However, if United want to sign Falcao on a permanent basis they have until May to activate the £40m buy-out clause in his contract.

What’s worse is that Southampton played well and deserved the win. Hardworking, disciplined and playing with absolutely no fear at Old Trafford the visitors were well…

    23 Feb 2015 | 4:29 am
    There’s no doubt Saturday’s performance was a distinct improvement on the embarrassment against Bradford and QPR before that. Still, with our inability to put the ball in the back of the net, at least in a way even those officials couldn’t disallow, it’s no surprise to see the strikers occupying the lower rungs of the ratings once again. [[content.top]]Man of the Match: John O’Shea – 7.53Another solid defensive performance from the skipper, who just edges it this week. The form of Brown Ideye was the biggest concern going into this one, but O’Shea, and Wes Brown alongside him,…

Now its a bit of deja vu in 2015 as the reds of Manchester have basically stunk out the place in all their matches this year – apart from a short period in the game at QPR in a 0-2 victory.

El Clásico, however, is a true rivalry by any standard.  If not thé true rivalry, at least in Europe (Boca – River, anyone?).  Pig’s head and all.  Sid Lowe has turned El Clásico into an outstanding mixture of details on the facts, myths, and perception associated with the…

The Dutchman has only featured on five occasions in Milan’s Serie A campaign this time around. The Metro has now reported that the original loan deal gave the Italian giants, an option to make the move a permanent one, at the end of the season.

  • Fiorentina 2-0 Tottenham (agg 3-1): Salah ended the match well as Spurs was crashed out

    26 Feb 2015 | 10:54 pm
    Chelsea loanee Mohamed Salah struck the hammer blow as Fiorentina eliminated a lacklustre Tottenham from the Europa League in Florence. With the tie marginally in Fiorentina's favour after a 1-1 draw at White Hart Lane last week, Mauricio Pochettino's side were made to pay the price for their inability to score away from home. Had Roberto Soldado not underhit a pass to Nacer Chadli with just Neto in their way during a quick first-half break, the Premier League side may have been able to get on top in the tie. However, Gomez's calm finish nine minutes into the second half gave the hosts a…

The Argentina international moved to Old Trafford from Spanish giants Real Madrid for a reported 59. 7m but has so far failed to settle in the Premier League.

    25 Feb 2015 | 8:32 am
    Barcelona emerge victorious once again at the Etihad Stadium. A result that shocked none. Barcelona were dominant in the first half and City came out stronger in the second half but were unable to comeback from a two goal deficit. It’s hard to see City overcome this home defeat which means Barcelona will most likely advance into the quarter finals of the Champions League. Now given Arsenal defeat Monaco over two legs they will potentially come up against the likes of Barcelona (Knowing our luck). So this is a good opportunity to learn from City’s mistakes. Let’s face it,…
