Premier League
Should Phil Foden leave Manchester City?
15:00 Saturday 14th September 2019

Phil Foden finds himself entangled in a dilemma. Does he wait it out to experience his glory days under perhaps the game's best manager? Or does he strike out on his own like Jadon Sancho to make his mark now? While there’s a long…

Are Derby County missing 'Super' Frank Lampard?
17:00 Friday 13th September 2019

A little over twelve months ago, Derby County would take a punt on a Premier League legend. Frank Lampard wouldn't join in a playing capacity, rather the Englishman would test his hand at management for the first time. For owner Melvyn…

08:00 Tuesday 10th September 2019

Chelsea sensation Tammy Abraham took the Championship by storm last term, scoring 26 goals across all competitions, helping Aston Villa to an unlikely promotion. The work he did with the Midlands outfit earned the 21-year-old an important role…

Just how far can Mason Mount go?
15:00 Saturday 7th September 2019

When I discovered that Chelsea Football Club were set to change their mantra (albeit forced due to a transfer ban) and believe in youth, the scepticism started to set in. I'm a big believer in trends. Whether you like it or not, spending…

Can Kosovo walk out of St Mary’s unbeaten?
09:01 Saturday 7th September 2019

You’d be forgiven for not knowing the finer details about Kosovo. With the country’s official status granted only 11 years ago, there’s been precious little time to understand the nation or truly appreciate its culturally…

Tyrone Mings continues to improve, earns deserved first England call-up
19:01 Tuesday 3rd September 2019

Tyrone Mings certainly hasn't had an easy ride. After spending his youth career at Southampton and Bristol Rovers, the then-teenager would move away due to a lack of opportunities, playing for non-league pair Yate Town and Chippenham Town…

Why we should remember Peter Crouch fondly following his retirement
17:01 Sunday 14th July 2019

After twenty-one years and ten permanent clubs, an evergreen Peter Crouch has taken the decision to hang up his playing boots for good.  Aged 38, the goals had started to dry up for the 6'6 striker, who ends on a mightily impressive tally…

Is it coming home? England Women's team arrive at their moment of truth
08:01 Tuesday 2nd July 2019

Last year, the phrase: “It’s coming home” trended heavily on social media. It reached fever pitch when England made the World Cup semi-final. The Three Lions, however, wouldn't get any further than the final…

15:01 Monday 24th June 2019

With an hour gone, England U21s were sitting pretty winning 1-0 against France. An outstanding solo run from Phil Foden looked set to continue the Three Lions' excellence on the international stage. It seemed as though our young…

12:01 Sunday 23rd June 2019

Aaron Wan-Bissaka is almost certain to join Manchester United in the coming days. Reports suggest a fee is close to being agreed with Crystal Palace, worth up to £55 million. If true, the Red Devils are pulling off a coup. For the…

It's Nikita Parris' time
17:00 Saturday 15th June 2019

It's common knowledge that Sergio Aguero has been firing Manchester City to success in the Premier League and English football as a whole. What is less known though is that Nikita Parris has been doing a similar job for the female Citizens…

On John Stones and the risk of playing from the back
17:00 Monday 10th June 2019

Playing from the back is the new mandate in football. ‘Anywhere will do’ has gone from sensible to foolish almost overnight. Ice hockey went through the same transition a few years ago. Dumping and chasing into the opponent’s…

Can Phil Neville find redemption with the Lionesses in France?
08:00 Sunday 9th June 2019

Gareth Southgate’s Russian redemption was a joy to watch. Since 1996 when his feebly struck penalty was saved by a grateful Andres Kopke, until around the time Eric Dier sent England through against Colombia, the Three Lions boss had…
