William Carvalho: Moyes could finally bolster United’s midfield with the Portuguese powerhouse

After David Moyes’s reign at Manchester hit the nadir of the 0-3 home defeat to Liverpool, the outlook has started to become a lot brighter for the Scottish manager who strains desperately for his team to produce indications that he is worth both the long-term patience and financial backing of the Glazer family.

Why Some Football Fans Need to Get a Grip During Winter Transfer Windows

At the start of the new year came the mid-season chance for various football clubs to either improve their squads or offload those players that are lacking promise. The winter window is much different in tone from the summer window. Pressure is often higher to make purchases to add quality to squads, something that is more readily taken advantage of by the selling teams. “Panic...

Andre Villas-Boas: The hapless, former Spurs boss makes swift return to management

It’s finally happened. Luciano Spalletti has been fired from Zenit Saint Petersburg after months of chaos within the Russian giants, and the club really do look to be going through a transitional period.

Eden Hazard: Chelsea’s stalwart continues to shows his outstanding talents as a warm-up for an exciting future

It is rather odd that Jose Mourinho should still be spinning the rhetoric that his Chelsea team are not title challengers whilst he sits, with 9 games to go, top of the league, 7 points clear of second place Liverpool and 9 clear of Manchester City. Cup commitments and postponements mean City have 3 games in hand and are still genuine rivals as they head into the run-in, but the...

Luis Suarez’s New Knitted Boots: Why The Boot Industry Has Lost the Plot

On Thursday, the British press confirmed what we’ve feared for a long, long time now: the football boot industry has lost its mind.

It was almost a mini English raid on Spartak Moscow this winter. But while Kim Kallstrom’s switch to Arsenal has been laughed at rather than praised, the move of Irish winger Aiden McGeady to Everton is something which has only been welcomed.

Football: What does it mean and how us fans shape our lives around it

There comes a time where we must all grow up. Young boys stop playing with little action figures and move on to games consoles, young girls stop wearing their mothers make-up and start wearing their own. We all go to secondary school, reach an age where an interest in the opposite sex grows and we watch more shows created for an older fanbase, as opposed to the kid’s TV we used...

Kim Kallstrom: Can the Arsenal loanee be of benefit to the title chasers?

You can’t blame Arsenal fans for feeling just a bit unlucky at times. For almost nine long years they have suffered without winning a trophy of any kind, and just as their hopes of finally finding success are becoming realistic, this happens. To put it lightly, the loan signing of Kim Kallstrom from the Spartak Moscow hasn’t gone down very well, especially when they could have...

The player we brought in this January transfer window is not 20 year old, raw talent Julian Draxler. We get Kim Källström instead. A player that is eleven years older than Draxler –whose transfer situation is created by the newspaper...
