Players Bound to Leave Man City

Manchester City had to endure a big hit when it was made known that UEFA is looking to ban the club from the Champions League for two years. We are yet to see how this saga will unfold and whether Guardiola’s team will actually receive an effective punishment. How ever this all pans out, though, it’s certain that at least a few players are already looking to move on.

Massimiliano Allegri and Mauricio Pochettino Newcastle

Things on the Tyneside are heating up! I recently did a piece on Newcastle United’s imminent ownership takeover and the process seems to be very much in motion.

Mohammad Bin Salman Newcastle

The Premier League action is currently on hold but there is big news coming from Tyneside. It appears that Mike Ashley’s era as the owner of Newcastle United will soon be over. A consortium led by financial expert Amanda Staveley has filed all the necessary paperwork and a £300 million takeover looks to be imminent.

What’s Going on at Barcelona?

Jose Maria Bartomeu Barcelona

Li Liga football may be on hold but there’s definitely something brewing in the Catalan city. Last week, news broke out that six Barcelona directors have quit their positions. They all sent their letters of resignation to club president Jose Maria Bartomeu and it looks like the main reason behind their decision is the now-infamous “Barcagate” scandal. If you haven’t been following the club during the current hiatus, let me give you a quick rundown of how this all started. What Is Barcagate? Bartomeu recently hired a third-party company called…

Where Will Harry Kane Play Next Season?

Harry Kane

I’m sure that most of you saw Harry Kane’s latest interview that suggests he might be leaving Tottenham soon. Long story short, the striker didn’t say he will depart for sure but stated that this is an option if he feels that the club is not developing properly. Essentially, he left the door open for a transfer and that is understandable. Up to last season, the Spurs looked like a team that’s within touching distance of the biggest trophies under Mauricio Pochettino. Sure, the Premier League was never going to…

Gareth Southgate, Bukayo Saka, Mason Greenwood and Phil Foden

The coronavirus completely ruined the plans of UEFA for Euro 2020. The competition was postponed for next summer but that’s for the best under the circumstances. Such a long delay will change a lot and one of the curious consequences is that it will provide a chance for some youngsters to win a place in the English squad. The manager Gareth Southgate has given such players a chance in the past, so he might do the same in the future. Let’s take a look at the five young players most…

UEFA Euro 2020 Postponed

I think it was inevitable for the governing bodies of football to move Euro 2020 to the next year. The coronavirus outbreak completely changed all the plans UEFA and the national federations had for the upcoming months. Football is simply not important right now, so that’s the reasonable decision. I’m sure that some fans won’t be happy, but there are several countries that might benefit from the situation. Let’s look at them.

Can Liverpool Really Lose the Premier League Title?

Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool Players

Up to a few weeks ago, it looked impossible for Liverpool to lose the English Premier League title. Jurgen Klopp’s men were beating everyone, building a huge gap in the process.

That’s when the coronavirus struck and the competition got suspended up to early April, at least. The big question is what happens next. If the tournament somehow continues, there’s little doubt that Liverpool will eventually…

English Premier League Top 4 Preview and Predictions

English Premier League Top 4 Betting Preview and Prediction

This English Premier League campaign has been weird so far, as many of the big guns have massively underperformed. Tottenham and Arsenal were so bad that they had to change their managers before the start of 2020, while Chelsea and Manchester United have been just slightly better. That has made the battle for the top 4 wide open and we have no clue who’s going to finish there at the end. Ok, that’s technically not true since Liverpool, Man City, and Leicester look certain. What I mean is that the…

Is Solskjaer Overplaying Bruno Fernandes Already?

Bruno Fernandes Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Manchester United

Manchester United had to go through a long negotiation process and pay a little fortune to get Bruno Fernandes from Sporting. The first impression is that the saga was totally worth it, as the midfielder has been a standout performer for the Red Devils recently. He scored several goals in different competitions and instantly became a leader on the pitch in the absence of Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford. It all looks good, but I have the feeling that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is starting to rely too much on Fernandes…
