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 […]
