A Week in Review: 16th-22nd November

This is one of the most competitive Premier League seasons in years. The start we have seen to this most unusual of Premier League seasons has shown that this could be an extremely competitive season. Anyone who was worrying that Liverpool would run away with it again can relax, I don’t see that happening. Their… Continue reading A Week in Review: 16th-22nd November

A Week in Review: 19th-25th October

Pay-per-view football has alienated fans and won’t help clubs cover their costs So, pay-per-view Premier League matches haven’t been doing as well as it was maybe hoped. Many matches on the two box office platforms have performed very poorly, so poorly that Sky and BT will not actually release the viewing figures. There was also… Continue reading A Week in Review: 19th-25th October

Premier League rejects ‘Project Big Picture,’ but promises to look at the big picture So, Project Big Picture comes to nothing. The radical new plan to restructure the English football pyramid was soundly rejected by all 20 Premier League clubs last week. That surely means that even the clubs who devised the ideas in the… Continue reading A Week in Review: 12th-18th October

Football petitions for fans’ return All football organisations released an open letter this week urging the government to allow fans to return to grounds. I can understand why they are pushing for this. Almost every other entertainment venue, pub, restaurant is allowed to be open to a degree, but sporting events are largely banned from… Continue reading A Week in Review: 5th-11th October

The Presidential debate shows just what Donald Trump has done to America And what he has done is taken an enormous dump on its reputation, its methods of discourse and shown the country’s sordid underbelly of racism, misogyny and general intolerance. He tries to replicate the tactics and incidents that saw him win the electoral… Continue reading A Week in Review: 28th September-4th October

Defensive frailties show Lampard still has a lot of work ahead. The weekend's results show that despite their major investment in the team, Frank Lampard still has a lot of work to do at Chelsea. Their first half performance was totally unacceptable for a side wanting to push on from last season and start to… Continue reading A Week in Review: 21st-27th September

Chelsea’s transfer business has been out of the top drawer, but I don’t think they will win the Premier League

That doesn’t mean I don’t think the season will be a successful one. I think it could well be one of the most exciting non-title winning seasons Chelsea have had in a long time. This season could be the precursor to Chelsea returning to being a major force in the league for a long time… Continue reading Chelsea’s transfer business has been out of the top drawer, but I don’t think they will win the Premier League

Fans return to a football ground There were fans at a football match in England for the first time in nearly six months last Saturday as Brighton hosted Chelsea in a pre-season friendly at the Amex stadium. Just over 2,500 Brighton fans were allowed in to watch their side play out a dress rehearsal of… Continue reading A Week in Review: 24th-30th August

Premier League return looms with fixtures release Most non-football fans will often make a comment every time the new season rolls into view that it barely seems like the previous one has ended. That feeling has never been truer as the Premier League fixture list was announced for the 2020/21 season this week. While many… Continue reading A Week in Review: 17th- 23rd August

Frank Lampard has worked wonders at Chelsea this season. He is the man to lead the club into the future.

So Chelsea and Arsenal will go head-to-head for a third time in the F.A. Cup final. Frank Lampard and his players pulled off a masterclass to nullify the attacking threat of Manchester United and seize upon individual errors to take Frank Lampard to a first major final as a manager. One major complaint among Chelsea… Continue reading Frank Lampard has worked wonders at Chelsea this season. He is the man to lead the club into the future.
