The Leicester City EPL Comeback?

We can all agree the English Premier League has become one of the most competitive leagues in the world.

Struggling Liverpool and Arsenal square off in Premier League clash

Two teams struggling for form a bit this winter meet at Anfield Saturday as Liverpool entertains Arsenal (12:30 p.m., ET, NBC). The Gunners are in fourth place at the moment, but the Reds can swap places with them by earning a win. Man in the middle: Robert Madley will be the man in charge of […]

Is Leicester’s win over Liverpool the turning point?

Last weekend, Leicester overcame the sacking of their Premier League-winning manager, Claudio Ranieri, with a decisive 3-1 win over Liverpool. In the match, they seemed to exorcise many of the demons that have plagued them, scoring their first, second and third goals of 2017. Does this bode well for the Premier League defending champs, and is […]

Bastian Schweinsteiger helped depressed referee who attempted suicide

Referees get a lot of verbal abuse from everyone in sports. Players, fans and the media will hammer a referee when they make a bad call and will call them anything and everything under the sun. We’ve all done it and have said “you suck” to a referee who made a bad call that negatively […]

When do Leicester consider the unthinkable?

Leicester’s 2016/17 season has not gone according to plan. Their defense of the Premier League title has been bumpy at best, and they now sit a single point above the relegation zone. If they do not turn things around immediately they risk dropping out of the Premier League next year. Much of the blame falls […]

Finding the best fit for Alexis Sanchez if he decides to leave Arsenal

After Arsenal’s humiliating defeat away to Bayern Munich, Alexis Sanchez looked terribly distraught as he has been for a while. The Chilean has been with the North London side since 2014.

FA Cup preview: Getting to know upstarts Lincoln City, Sutton United

The fifth round of the FA Cup is set for this weekend, and it’s a stage usually reserved for teams near the top of the English pyramid. That’s not always true, however. In this year’s edition, Lincoln City and Sutton United — members of the National League, the fifth tier of said pyramid — have […]

Would Chelsea have been Champions League favorites this season?

Chelsea is currently steamrolling towards another Premier League title. They look unstoppable. The London side will easily qualify for next season’s Champions League. Chelsea missed out on Europe’s premier club competition this season thanks to a disastrous start in the previous year. With Antonio Conte’s men playing so well, there might be a small annoyance […]

Liverpool’s midfield trio is the key to their success

Liverpool have been woeful for the last few weeks. I don’t think that is even a remotely controversial opinion to have. Saturday was different, though. Liverpool’s demolition of Spurs showed that they are still capable of the exciting soccer that we had come to expect. Many have begun attributing this to Liverpool raising their game to […]
