This Summer May Be A Bad One For The EPL

Will it be another Spanish summer? Or is there hope for England yet? No, I’m not talking about winning the World Cup; instead I’m talking about the glamorization of La Liga more and more at the expense of the Premier League. With the three biggest summer signings wrapped up or […]

FIFA Bans Chelsea From Buying Players Until 2011

It’s funny how karma works.  Chelsea took an inhumanely stern line with Adrian Mutu, and now FIFA has taken a stern line with them. The Blues have been found guilty of “inducing” French midfielder Gael Kakuta to break his contract with Lens in 2007.  FIFA has forbid them to participate […]

Stay Fit, Keep Xabi, Masch: Liverpool Can Win… part 1

Manchester City: The Next Chelsea FC?

It wasn’t so long ago, I was completely outraged by Chelsea FC’s spending. 16.6m for Mekelele. 24.4m for Essien. 19.8m for Carvalho. 24m for Drogba. As a business, the club could sustain a 140m loss on a year because Roman Abramovich was there to bankroll the transfers. This was bad […]

The transfer window activity had been quite up to this point and the sacking of Sam Allardyce had been the big story. However, with the Anelka move to Chelsea that should kick off some action. Liverpool midfielder Mohamed Sissoko has revealed he is close to securing a move to Italian […]

Fact or Trash! Jan 2008 – Round 1

Before I get started, a quick correction on yesterday’s post – QPR’s deals for Connolly and Ephraim are permanent moves and not just loan deals. I also neglected to mention a couple of “future star” signings that were made by Chelsea, Everton, Liverpool and Manchester United as well as deals […]

Transfer window opens

The transfer window has started and I’ll be covering all the moves and rumours over the next couple of weeks. So far, the deals have been largely loan moves of Premier League squad players to Championship sides. Queens Park Rangers have been the busiest, wrapping up loan deals for West […]
