Benitez Cannot Buckle Under Pressure

“It is difficult for us to qualify, but not impossible,We have to win our game and see what happens with Fiorentina and Lyon. Then we will approach the last game.” Benitez has certainly fought his corner today after the galling last minute equaliser Liverpool conceded in the Stade Gerland last […]

Behind the Scenes at Fox Soccer Channel

As Fox Soccer Channel’s Nick Webster told me, “Americans have more access to soccer from around the world than in any other country on earth.”  That is undoubtedly true.  On any given weekend, you can flip around the dial and find the EPL, Serie A, La Liga, the MLS, the […]

Why I Love Football Vol. 1 – Last Gasp Goals

Hi Guys, I’m here with my first post. I’m going to be doing a weekly post on the reasons why I love the beautiful game so much. This week I will be starting, ironically, with last gasp goals. It doesn’t matter how they are scored, whether it’s a tap in […]

Lucas Leiva: Good Enough for Liverpool?

If you believe Liverpool manager Raphael Benitez there are few midfielders more suited for the Premier League than Lucas Leiva. After all, Benitez has spent much of his 2009-2010 campaign lobbying on behalf of the twenty-two year old Brazilian. Benitez praises Levia’s work rate and dedication to the team, all […]

EPL Talk Meets Henry Winter

Henry Winter is one of Britain’s most respected football journalists and currently works for the Daily Telegraph. His career started at the Independent and he moved to The Telegraph in 1994. A familiar face on Sky’s Sunday Supplement, Henry was been kind enough to have a quick chat with us […]

The First Title Clash: Chelsea vs. Liverpool

On Sunday at 11:00 AM, the Premier League will be treated to its first significant title clash when Liverpool take on Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. Indulge me while I set the scene for the match. Chelsea and Liverpool have met 4 times or more for the past five years and […]

Lethargic and Disjointed But Liverpool Can’t Panic

The unfortunate downside of modern technology means that any armchair fan can now comment on any team without actually seeing the game. As I type this, I’m listening to Radio 5 and Liverpool “fans” are calling for the head of Benitez. “The worst display I’ve ever seen from a Liverpool […]

Can Anderson Be the Key?

Cast your mind back to May 2009, Manchester United were comprehensively and soundly trounced in Rome by a magical Barcelona side, inspired by Xavi and Iniesta. For many, the lack of quality in the centre of the park was plain to see, Carrick looked lethargic and unsure of himself, Fletcher […]

Gareth Barry Proves He’s A Hypocrite

When we had to put up with the on/off Gareth Barry transfer saga all last season, one of the key facts throughout the drama was that Barry wanted to play Champions League football. It was a purely football based decision to want to leave Aston Villa, though the fact that […]

Chelsea’s Biggest Enemy Tonight Is Complacency

So Chelsea have one foot in the semi-finals of the Champions League after the marvellous 3-1 win at Anfield last week and Saturdays 4-3 win against Bolton was probably the kick up the backside the Blues needed. It’s easy to fall for the fallacy that Liverpool can’t overturn the deficit […]

Nerves Will Destroy Stewart Downings England Career

Why can’t Stewart Downing show us the form that makes him such a sought after player when he pulls on the England shirt? There is no doubting that at Premier League level, Downing is one of the most dangerous and creative players in the country but after Saturdays performance against […]

Gerrard And Torres: Striking Partners

Baros. Cisse. Morientes. Crouch. Kuyt. Bellamy. Voronin. Keane. Since Rafael Benitez took the helm at Liverpool FC, he’s maintained a revolving door of strikers, searching for the perfect frontline duo. And while he’s fielded many natural hitmen with the ability to keep his side in top four contention and remain […]

Is Steven Gerrard the Best Player in the World?

Following Liverpool’s 4-0 dismantling of Real Madrid at Anfield last midweek, France legend Zinedine Zidane described Steven Gerrard as “the best player in the world.” “Is he the best in the world? He might not get the attention of Messi and Ronaldo but yes, I think he just might be. […]
