''Twice!''
08:00 Monday 11th November 2019

When will football stop ignoring Erik Ten Hag?
17:00 Saturday 12th October 2019

Who are the Premier League transfer window moneymakers?
08:00 Wednesday 14th August 2019

The transfer window is intended to sign players who can improve a club. To use it for any other purpose invites derision. Fans will tell you a club that doesn't spend is either too small or lacks ambition. Developing and selling on…

09:01 Tuesday 13th August 2019

While the rest of the Premier League hustled and bustled this summer to bring in new players and add to their squad, Liverpool were largely silent. Content with the squad after Champions League success, Jurgen Klopp decided no new big additions…
