Is The Premier League In Decline?

July 24, 2011


We’re now in the middle of July and the deadline for signing a player that will get a meaningful pre-season is barrelling nearer. (For an example of what can happen when a player doesn’t get time to blend in with his new teammates, see Torres, F. circa January-? 2011). Obviously there will be some exceptions […]

The Shop Window: 50 Players to Watch This Summer

June 1, 2011


This summer at least one team will spend a bathful of these notes and go on to finish in the exact same position as last year. I know how it goes. Weekends are busy times, and it’s hard to keep track of what’s going on with all those matches. But now we’ve come to the […]

Feel the Excitement

January 31, 2011


Just 1 day left. I only wish I’d thought to book a day off work. It’s said that none of the huge deals go through in the January window. Such people are fools and should be ignored. You can rest assured that my eyes will be firmly glued to the BBC rolling coverage of the […]

Ancelotta Problems

January 4, 2011


So…this was meant to be the third of 3 postings on the start of the transfer window. The first was yesterday on players who won’t be transferred in the window; and since then one of my picks has been given more weight by Owen Coyle putting the prohibitive price-tag of  £20 million or more on […]

5 Premier League Players Not Going Anywhere

January 3, 2011


With so many news outlets predicting what players will be making a transfer in the next month, clearly some balance is needed. So I’m going to try and name 5 players I’m convinced will still be wearing their club’s colours come February. With 20 teams of 20 or more players  equalling over 400 players, it […]
