Will the top six be closer than ever this Premier League season?

This year, the Premier League promises to be more competitive than ever. That is quite the statement, considering what happened in the 2015/16 season.

Christian Pulisic: Will somebody think of the children?!

So, that Pulisic boy had a good game last night. Well, good is putting is fairly mildly. In his first start for the United States, Christian Pulisic not only played the full 90 minutes, he was the stand out player on the pitch. For a kid that hasn’t even hit his 18th birthday yet, that’s incredible. […]

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 […]

What happened to Leicester against Hull?

So Leicester have become only the second team in over 30 years to begin their defense of the First Division (in this case the Premier League) title with a loss.
