How Milan Can Become Fashionable Again

How Milan Can Become Fashionable Again

Of all the European football giants enduring a period of crisis, surely none can match the decline of Milan.

As recently as eight years ago, ... Read More »

Norwich City are once again looking for a new manager after Neil Adams fell on his sword earlier today with the club sitting just outside the play-offs in the Championship. Given the squad they have and the start to the season they made, it is a disappointment and an underachievement yet the former winger, youth team manager and radio pundit ... Read More »

Why A Change Is Needed At Newcastle

Why A Change Is Needed At Newcastle

I never like to see anyone get the sack but Alan Pardew is surely on borrowed time at Newcastle United. The Magpies are rock bottom of the Premier League having not won a game so far this season and their form has worryingly carried on seamlessly from the second half of last season. Unfortunately for Newcastle, they’re only heading in ... Read More »

How Norwich Have Turned Their Fortunes Around

How Norwich Have Turned Their Fortunes Around

Here’s a few of my thoughts on who I felt spent the wisest, who managed to improve their squad the most and who had the best transfer window in general. For ... Read More »

Why Leeds Are Heading Nowhere Under Cellino

Why Leeds Are Heading Nowhere Under Cellino

The recent sacking of David Hockaday at Leeds United will not have come as much of a surprise to anyone but his dismissal by the notoriously ruthless owner Massimo Cellino leaves the proud Yorkshire club in yet another state of disarray and brings the suitability of the Italian businessman for the job into serious doubt. It has been well-documented that ... Read More »
