What’s missing for each Premier League team? (Arsenal to Man City)

With a little less than a week until the summer transfer window shuts, every Premier League team could use at least one more piece to make their team better.

Is this the year Arsenal fall out of the top four?

Another Premier League season is upon us, and with it comes another chance for Arsenal to win the Top 4 trophy. Things have started pretty bumpy for Arsene Wenger and his team. Currently, they have a singular point in the Premier League after a tough start against Top four rivals Liverpool and Leicester. In that time, […]

Bayern go for a fifth straight Bundesliga title, Dortmund look to play spoiler

This weekend brings about the return of the German Bundesliga. Bayern Munich will attempt to continue their dominance, while Dortmund tries to improve upon last season’s resurgence under Thomas Tuchel and spoil the record champions party. Elsewhere in Germany, Schalke 04, Borussia Mönchengladbach and Bayer Leverkusen look set to battle for the top four. Freiburg returns to […]

MANCHESTER, ENGLAND - AUGUST 19:  Jose Mourinho, Manager of Manchester United gives the thumbs up after the Premier League match between Manchester United and Southampton at Old Trafford on August 19, 2016 in Manchester, England.  (Photo by Michael Steele/Getty Images)

When should Manchester United fire Jose Mourinho

Caution: The content/takes in this post are extremely hot. Proceed at your own discretion.  Let’s call a spade a spade here. The Manchester United-Jose Mourinho relationship is going to end when United eventually fire him. Maybe they’ll say it was by “mutual consent” but if history is any guide, their working partnership will end sometime […]

STOKE ON TRENT, ENGLAND - AUGUST 20: Joe Hart of Manchester City (R) warms up with team mate Willy Cabellero of Manchester City (L) during the Premier League match between Stoke City and Manchester City at Bet365 Stadium on August 20, 2016 in Stoke on Trent, England.

What’s next for Joe Hart?

It hasn’t been a great summer for Joe Hart. His mistake against Iceland was part of the reason England crashed out of the European championships, and now it seems he’s fallen out of favor with his new manager, Pep Guardiola. He hasn’t played for Manchester City this season, instead sitting on the bench behind Willy […]

The Seattle Sounders are the new favorites to win the MLS Cup

It may not seem like this but the Seattle Sounders have greatly improved and are arguably on their best form in years. And them peaking at the right time, could give them the one trophy they have been striving for since entering MLS in 2009, the MLS Cup. If you haven’t been following the Sounders, […]

What’s next for Brazil, and how far can Neymar take them?

It couldn’t have been more perfect, having Neymar take the final penalty that would win Brazil their first gold medal in Olympic history. The man whom so much is asked by his country was the one to deliver for them. The match against Germany on Saturday became a nationwide therapy session when Neymar sent Timo Horn […]

Usual suspects take aim at La Liga crown

The Spanish first division cranks up this weekend, and that leads me to the safest prediction in world soccer: Barcelona, Real Madrid or Atletico Madrid will win the title. It’s not exactly a gamble to pick one of those teams, since one has to go all the way back to Valencia’s title run in 2003 […]

Manchester United downs Southampton, 2-0

It’s hard to imagine a more successful start to the unlikely union of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Jose Mourinho at Manchester United. Ibrahimovic, the mercurial Swedish striker, scored a pair of first-half goals to power Mourinho’s Red Devils to their third win in as many tries on the young season — a 2-0 victory over Southampton […]

LIVERPOOL, ENGLAND - NOVEMBER 26:  Alberto Moreno of Liverpool FC during the UEFA Europa League match between Liverpool FC and FC Girondins de Bordeaux at Anfield on November 26, 2015 in Liverpool, United Kingdom.  (Photo by Alex Livesey/Getty Images)

Is it time for Liverpool to give up on Moreno?

Life as a soccer player is never tough, especially when you have a bad game. And, boy, did Alberto Moreno have a bad game against Arsenal. At fault for giving away a horribly unnecessary penalty, at fault for the first goal, and lacking his usual attacking outlet, Moreno showed just why many Liverpool want him […]
