Stewart Downing: The Enigma

I’ve wondered for a long time what it is that managers see in Stewart Downing, particularly England managers. Since his first call up in February 2005, Downing has been pretty much been a regular in the England squad, but why? I don’t understand how one player can have gained 22 […]

Player to Watch: Savio Nsereko & Other Thoughts

It seemed like a whirlwind footballing weekend. We got confirmation that Arsenal and Liverpool are in a freefall, while Chelsea still has a long way to go if they have any hopes of closing the gap with Man United. And the Red Devils, even with a B team, showed how […]

Chelsea Win Late but Far From Impressive

On Friday, during my game previews, Sam wondered how Wigan could score? Today, Chelsea gave us an answer, complacency. For much of Wigan’s trip to Stamford Bridge, it was Chelsea on the back foot. Completely against the run of play, John Terry put Chelsea ahead twenty-five minutes in. Before that, […]

The UEFA Cup: What Is The Point?

West Ham Reward Their Fans And Deserve Credit

So after Saturdays draw, it would be an honest enough opinion to think that not many of the Hammers faithful would be relishing a midweek trip to Teeside next week. After visiting the area 4 times since the 1st November, the West Ham board have made the generous gesture to […]

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. […]

Fox Soccer Snooze Day

Number of days since an English football club scored a goal during Fox Soccer Channel’s live soccer coverage on Saturdays: 14. We last saw a goal scored by an English team on Fox Soccer Channel on Saturday, November 15 when Nicolas Anelka knocked the final goal in for Chelsea against […]

Strange Day In The Premier League

What a strange day it was in the Premier League on Saturday. Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United all failed to score. Aston Villa came within a whisker of beating Man United, which would have pushed them into third place. And Arsenal crumbled against Manchester City. In the closest Premier League […]
