Premier League
Could Mourinho ever play against type?
08:00 Tuesday 9th October 2018

Premier League
Is Marouane Fellaini's Manchester United revival inspired by Belgium's World Cup?
12:00 Wednesday 19th September 2018

When Jose Mourinho fought the board and fans to re-sign Marouane Fellaini in the summer, his sanity was questioned. Sentiment said he wasn't a "United player." Good riddance; sign someone like Jorginho or, more popularly,…

What is Manchester United's best centre-back pairing?
08:00 Wednesday 19th September 2018

Manchester United has endured a rough patch at the beginning of the season. The major issue lies in defence. It's probably the first time a Jose Mourinho team has struggled so much at the back. Last campaign, full-backs were the biggest…

Equal Time: Why the international break does more harm than good
17:00 Saturday 8th September 2018

Already?! I hear you cry. Yes indeed, the first international break for the season is already upon us. It feels like just as things were clicking nicely into gear, domestic football was put on hold for a fortnight. For Premier League fans,…

Is Fred turning out to be an unnecessary signing for Manchester United?
08:00 Sunday 2nd September 2018

Everything at Manchester United seems doomed now. Both Jose Mourinho and Edward Woodward are facing the music from all genres of the footballing world. The self-proclaimed Special One is continuously moaning. It all started on pre-season tour.…

World Cup
The World Cup was good to Jose Mourinho
08:30 Thursday 12th July 2018

Whether from the comfort of his Moscow hotel suite or the confines of the RT studio where he is serving as a guest pundit for the World Cup, one might well forgive Jose Mourinho for smiling to himself as the tournament draws to a…

World Cup
Marouane Fellaini's World Cup revival
12:30 Monday 9th July 2018

Marouane Fellaini has divided opinion ever since his 2013 move to Manchester United. Fans wrote him off without ever giving him a chance. Five years later, he refuses to leave and is bossing it on the grandest stage. Amid the World Cup…

What Marouane Fellaini's snub means for Arsenal
12:00 Sunday 1st July 2018

How the mighty have fallen. There was once a time when Arsenal [and Arsene Wenger] could look in the direction of a player and he’d come running. Now the third-best team in London are being rejected on a daily basis by, let’s…

How Baseball Explains Marouane Fellaini
09:00 Sunday 1st July 2018

If you’ve ever let an uncle down on his luck stay in your spare room, only to discover that he has an aversion to bathwater, talks with his mouth full, belches, farts, scratches, and keeps promising to leave before finding new excuses…

Manchester United's Squad Review: Who stays or goes in midfield?
15:00 Friday 25th May 2018

In the last two summer transfer windows, Jose Mourinho looked to strengthen Manchester United’s midfield. He brought in Paul Pogba, then Nemanja Matic. While United’s midfield has improved, there remain inconsistencies. Add to that…

Premier League
What does the future hold for Marouane Fellaini at Manchester United?
13:00 Tuesday 1st May 2018

Few Premier League players are more polarizing than Marouane Fellaini. The Manchester United midfielder divides opinion with his play. There are only two alternatives when his name is mentioned. Fans either absolutely love him, or absolutely…

Why Marouane Fellaini is being unfairly treated by Manchester United fans
19:00 Monday 30th April 2018

Manchester United overcame Arsenal 2-1 at Old Trafford yesterday afternoon, with the all-important winner coming from Marouane Fellaini. The much-maligned Belgium international is yet to pen a new deal at United, although after the game, manager…

Manchester United 2-1 Arsenal: Wenger's road misery continues
08:30 Monday 30th April 2018

Manchester United vs Arsenal. Jose Mourinho vs Arsene Wenger. Whatever the situation, this will always be a big game. The tables were turned as Arsenal travelled to Old Trafford in the midst of a Europa League run. It was the mirror fixture…

World Cup
Can Belgium win the World Cup?
08:00 Saturday 31st March 2018

For the past two World Cup cycles we've heard how good Belgium are. This is their golden generation. There are world-class players throughout the lineup, perhaps even on the bench. So, maybe it's true, but Marc Wilmots wasn't able…

Premier League
Courtois must raise his game for Belgium at the World Cup
09:30 Friday 23rd March 2018

It is a known fact that Chelsea shot-stopper Thibaut Courtois ranks among the world's best. Perhaps Chelsea’s shambolic title defence has affected him. Perhaps it's his indecision regarding his future. No one knows…
