Why Michy Batshuayi needs to leave Chelsea this summer

Chelsea are entering the season with a new striker in the form of Alvaro Morata and they could yet sign another to compete with the Spanish international. However, Michy Batshauyi is making a case for himself during pre-season with some great performances. The Belgian was underused last season and it appeared that Antonio Conte wasn't a huge fan of the striker. He arrived with a growing reputation and was regarded as a greater talent than Alexandre Lacazette when he left …

Mourinho, Martial and an unbeaten United in pre-season

Two of the biggest and most popular football clubs in the world - Real Madrid and Manchester United, engaged in a friendly bout in the States as a dress rehearsal for the European Super Cup encounter which is scheduled to take place in two weeks for the first piece of silverware of the season. The game ended 1-1 and the Reds somehow stumbled on to a win - through a frankly, comical penalty shootout - where seven out of ten …

Jack Wilshere: Facing Crucial Decisions in his Career Defining Summer

In February of 2011 Arsenal defied the odds to beat Europe’s greatest - Pep Guardiola’s Barcelona – 2-1 at the Emirates in the Champions League. That night the pitch was laden with midfield maestros; the likes of Xavi Hernandez, Andres Iniesta and Cesc Fabregas to name a few. But the name which dominated the back pages the morning after was none of the above, instead it was a 19-year-old by the name of Jack Wilshere. With a passing accuracy of …

Lukaku and Rashford 'could' be United's new Yorke and Cole

Ambitious title, isn't it?  When Lukaku and Rashford started together for the first time at Manchester United, in a fairly historic event - the first Manchester derby held outside of UK and the first time the two sides faced each other after the horrific terrorist/suicide bomber attack in May, there was as much excitement among the United fans as there was respect from both sides, on the pitch and the terraces in Houston, who made it nothing less than a …

This was before Mamadou Sakho’s pre-season transgressions that have led to desperate tap ups this summer. It was also before Red Bull Leipzig and Naby Keita lit up the Bundesliga. Alberto Moreno had endured a torrid second half in the Europa League final and the clamour for a new left back amongst the …
