When Did It Go Wrong For Hull City?

In light of the news of Phil Brown “attacking” Geovanni, many football fans are wondering, when did it go wrong for Hull? As the season started, fans and pundits alike were raving about the breath of fresh air he brought to the Premiership. Bucking the trend for promoted sides, his […]

Hull City To Go Down?

Can anyone remember the last time Hull City won a Premier League game? December 6th at home to Middlesbrough was the last time. Since then, they have been very much in freefall.  When Hull first arrived in the Premiership, they were tipped to go straight back down but decided to […]

Mike Ashley Faces His Most Important Decision

Whether they want him or not, the Geordie nation are stuck with Mike Ashley as much as he’s stuck with them. Since the Keegan debacle back in September, the hard pressed fans have continued to watch their beloved Magpies struggle along with no real resolution in sight and last weeks […]

Hull City’s U.S. Charm Offensive Will Pay Dividends

EPL Talk’s ex-pat and Anglophile readers familiar with the classic British sitcom Only Fools and Horses will likely remember the program’s 1985 Christmas special, “To Hull and Back,” in which Del Boy and Rodney unwittingly end up in the northern English city of Hull on their way to picking up […]

Website Interview: Classic Football Shirts

If, like me, you’re always looking around the Internet for those hard to find football shirts from your past, frustrated as someone gazumps on you on e-bay for the classic 1987 Tottenham away kit with 3 seconds to go, then there has to be only one website for you to […]

Umbro Hard At Work On New Hull City Third Shirt

The 2008/2009 Premier League season will go down as one of the most bizarre in terms of football kits. There’s West Bromwich Albion who are without a shirt sponsor for the entire season. Then there was West Ham United and the covering up of sponsor name XL Travel with player’s […]

Football Transfer Twaddle: Defoe, Arteta, Toure and Pennant

After accepting a sordid envelope with £20m for “Lass” Diarra, Portsmouth rejected shrewd dealer Harry Redknapp’s £30m overture for Jermain Defoe, Glen Johnson and Peter Crouch.  Pompey then lessened Defoe’s value markedly, by announcing they would sell him for a fair price. “It looks like Jermain wants to go,” Portsmouth […]

It's A Wonderful Life: Premier League Style

Earlier last week, I wrote how on paper the Premier League weekend fixtures seemed boring other than the Arsenal against Liverpool match-up. Boy, was I wrong. To me, this was one of the most entertaining weekends of the season. Here are the matches I caught this weekend and my thoughts […]

Liverpool and Arsenal Are Flat-Track Bullies; Only In Reverse

It’s been the same story from Liverpool and Arsenal all season. To become Premier League champions, both teams lack the consistency needed not only in their results, but also in their performances on the pitch. Saturday was another perfect example as both teams underwhelmed against opposition they should have beaten. […]

Say No To Sunderland's Negative Tactics

It’s quite odd that in some circles Sunderland’s near draw against Manchester United at Old Trafford this past Saturday is being heralded as a massive achievement. What I saw was one of the most negative and anti-soccer performances in ages. For the entire 90 minutes, Sunderland “parked their bus” in […]

Confessions of a Frustrated World Cup Fan

Raise your hand if you live in these great United States, you work full time Monday-Friday, or close to it, and you’re a passionate football fan and love the World Cup with every fiber of your being? If you’re anything like me, your hand is probably (frustratingly) raised high in […]

John Terry a potential target for Qatar clubs, says Zola

John Terry is a “big name” player who would attract interest from several club sides in Qatar, his former Chelsea teammate Gianfranco Zola said on Thursday. The Italian was speaking publicly for the first time since his current side — Al-Arabi — was linked to the Chelsea captain following Terry’s […]
