  • There's no Place like London for a Derby

    2016-09-23 15:03

    Last season, Chelsea became notorious for being horrid, later recovering under Hiddink‘s management. However, even though Arsenal won the Community Shield match, they went on to lose both Premier League games to the Blues. Chelsea managed to score two clean sheet victories when meeting the Gunners – so are we going to see something similar this time around, too?

    While everyone may have their own favourite football player of all time, there’s one thing all fans can agree on: both Barcelona and Real Madrid have an amazing attacking trio of their own.

  • 20 Years a Professor: Arsène Wenger

    2016-09-21 16:22

    On 16th of September, 1996, one Arsène Wenger was appointed as the manager of Arsenal. Back then, in the pre-Google times, the general reaction was “Arsène who?”. And here we are 20 years later, with the same Frenchman still overlooking one of the best teams that England has ever produced, and there probably isn’t anyone who’s the least bit into football who wouldn’t know his name.

  • No more Pipe Dreams: Liverpool to Finish in Top 4?

    2016-09-19 17:48

    Only five weeks of Premier League have passed, and yet a few trends are already clear. Man City has a strong hold on the lead, Everton is playing beyond expectations, Chelsea is no longer miserable – and Liverpool seems to be able to hold up their own, too.

  • Chelsea: Relearning to Play Football

    2016-09-16 11:14

    Last year, the first big news in the Premier League was the fact that none other than Chelsea completely forgot how to play football, even though they started the season as the defending champions. Their victory-free pre-season plus the Community Shield loss to Arsenal were hinting at a disaster, and yet it still came as a huge shock.

  • A Clash at the Stamford Bridge: Liverpool vs Chelsea

    It‘s Week 5 in the Premier League, and the Table is still allowing teams to move up and down with a breakneck speed. However, a few trends are already pretty clear – and one of them is that Chelsea remembered how to play football. This week they‘re meeting Liverpool, who managed to start winning again with the last week‘s 4:1 vs the defending champions – so this ought to be good.

  • Derby Time: Which Manchester will Fall?

    2016-09-06 16:38

    These first three weeks very surely pretty intense – and by now, there are only three teams that haven‘t lost a single time. Man City stands strong in the first place with a 6 point difference while Chelsea follows at #2, and hot on their heels is none other than Man United. But the perfect track record may very well change for one of the three leaders after the fourth week matches.

    It‘s the first match for Sam Allardyce as the manager of England‘s national team – and it‘s going to take place in Trnava versus Slovakia. The opening qualifier is taking place on Sunday, and hopefully, it will go down better than the last match with Slovakia did: Roy Hodgson’s men came out with a clean-sheet draw.

  • Is it the End of Era Djokovic?

    2016-08-26 17:27

    The last Grand Slam of the year is here – and even though Novak Djokovic may still be a favourite for many fans and professionals alike, it is impossible to deny that lately we have not been seeing the same man play. Now the world‘s #1 is still ridiculously far ahead with his ATP points standing at 14840, with an advantage of more than five thousand over Andy Murray, but since Wimbledon, Djokovic started to seem more and more human.
