Say what you want - Liverpool's defence is good enough for a top-four finish

Once again in the Premier League, Liverpool are playing an exciting brand of attacking football, which is perhaps only bettered by Manchester City in the top-flight. Jurgen Klopp’s trusted 4-3-3 formation allows the likes of Mo Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino to pile forward, whilst they are often joined by Philippe Coutinho, who can be found in a slightly deeper role. Liverpool have 21 goals in the Premier League after 11 fixtures and have also scored a further 13 …

Swansea on the Right Track to Avoid the Drop

Swansea on the Right Track to Avoid the Drop

At the end of last season, Swansea City sat seven points and three places above the relegation zone with a goal difference of -25. It was a turbulent season, but the introduction of Paul Clement as head coach in January – following the shortcomings of Francesco Guidolin and Bob Bradley – saw the win percentage rise from a mere 15.8 percent along with three draws through 19 games, to a mighty 47.4% win rate as well as two draws. While the …

Is Mesut Ozil Leaving Arsenal?

Mesut Ozil, the German-born football player currently playing for English team Arsenal, as well as in the German national team, has made his name as a midfield attacker who is also sometimes tasked with the role of winger.

Tottenham earn their spurs at the Bernabéu

Tottenham earn their spurs at the Bernabéu

Tottenham Hotspur narrowly missed out on what could have been a memorable victory against the current holders of the UEFA Cup Champions League, Real Madrid. Real had to rely on a penalty from the evergreen Cristiano Ronaldo to earn the draw, although, with 61% of the possession overall, the home team were probably the more disappointed to not have won the game. However, that shouldn’t detract from what turned out to be an excellent result from Tottenham’s point of view. …

It is time for Pep Guardiola to prove his credentials at Manchester City

Pep Guardiola arrived at Manchester City with big promises last summer. Before his move to Premier League, he had enjoyed a lot of success with Barcelona and Bayern Munich, but many argued that the Spaniard's job was made easy by the talent at his disposal at both of his jobs. The City job was quite different. He was required to build a new team without any support from the youth academy, and carry the club to the heights they have …
Why bookmakers don’t like winners

Why bookmakers don’t like winners

Many football fans enjoy a regular flutter at the bookies. Using your football knowledge to outwit the bookies can be highly satisfying, not to mention financially rewarding. But if you’re too good at it, the bookmakers will bite back. It’s not widely known (largely because it’s rare and the bookmaking industry does its best to keep it quiet) but regular profitable gamblers will have their accounts restricted or even closed. The practise, sometimes known as gubbing, mainly affects two types …
English football from a Norwegian view

English football from a Norwegian view

English football is almost as a religion i Norway and it has been like that for decades. When I was a young boy I remember watching teams like Forest, Derby, Sheffield Wednesday, Liverpool and Leeds, among others, battle it out on my grandfathers old TV. It was great and it was exciting but more important: it gave me a hobby for life and a lifelong interest. And that is just not me! Just to make a comparison before I move …
