Premier League Club Should Take a Gamble on Impressive Stoke Midfielder

Peter Etebo arrived in the Potteries with very little fanfare, but the athletic midfielder gradually won over the fans with his all-action performances. His 2019 displays were a rare bright spot in an underwhelming season for the Staffordshire club, who finished in 16th position with a goal difference of -7. Etebo’s future is uncertain, and a number of impressive displays at the African Cup of Nations this summer have certainly helped put him in the shop window once again.  ICYMI: @NGSuperEagles midfielder, Peter Etebo scored his first goal for Stoke City in…

Could Sandro Ramirez be Given a New Lease of Life at Real Valladolid?

It would be an understatement to suggest that Sandro Ramirez has not enjoyed his time on Merseyside. The 23-year old striker joined the Toffees at the beginning of July 2017 after plundering sixteen goals for Malaga in the Spanish top flight, but his time at Goodison Park did not go according to plan. The barren striker has joined Real Valladolid on a season-long loan, and it could potentially be a savvy move for the frontman, who should be given plenty of time to recapture his form at Estadio Jose Zorrilla.  Sandro Ramirez – who has…

Nevertheless, our journalists have managed to find several objective criteria for the rating compilation. #1 – Portugal – North Korea 5: 3 (World Championship, 1966) North Korea is not the most famous football team.

Four European Clubs Who Should Resist Selling Players This Summer

It’s almost accepted in football that ‘smaller’ clubs who have seen a bit of success will get raided during the summer months, forcing them to rebuild all over again. In a way, it’s a bit of shame. Who knows, for example, how far the Monaco team that won Ligue 1 in 2016/17 could have gone if they hadn’t been stripped down and sold for parts after that triumph? You can make an argument for reinvestment and renewal, like Ajax might do this summer, but often, they never catch the same…

The rebuilding of Arsenal

Lacazette

Last Wednesday, Unai Emery’s Arsenal side capitulated in the second half of their Europa League final against Chelsea in Baku. Emery – well-versed in the art of winning European football’s second-biggest prize – could only watch on as Maurizio Sarri’s Chelsea took them apart, thanks largely to the talents of one Eden Hazard. Arsenal lost 4-1 on the night and missed out on their last chance of qualifying for next season’s Champions League in the process. The Gunners’ suspect backline was moved about at will by Hazard and co in…

“Grealish staying at Aston Villa”

Jack Grealish

Aston Villa manager Dean Smith has poured cold water on reports that Jack Grealish will be making a summer exit from Villa park. Grealish has been often linked with a move to Tottenham, most recently in the January transfer window, but the Midlands club have been able to keep hold of him while in the Championship.

The End of Solksjaer’s honeymoon period

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Things were going so well at Old Trafford. Right up until early March, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s revitalised Manchester United team were beating almost everyone they met. Other than the home defeat to Paris Saint Germain in the first leg of their Champions League (CL) last-sixteen tie, no-one had managed to conquer Ole’s Red Devils. And United even went on to knock PSG out of the CL with that memorable win in France. However, that was the last notable victory Solskjaer’s team managed in the 2018/19 campaign. United did win two…

It’s a strange atmosphere that surrounds Chelsea as they prepare for their Europa League final against Arsenal on May 29th. The club, which has won five Premier Leagues and a Champions League trophy all in the last 15 years, could be considered to be in limbo at the moment.

Tottenham fans everywhere will have breathed a collective sigh of relief when Manchester United offered Ole Gunnar Solksjaer a full-time contract and Real Madrid brought Zinedine Zidane back to the club.
