Manchester City will win the Champions League this year. All respect to Inter and you do have to give it because they made the final having started the group stage in a group with Barcelona and Bayern Munich. But Manchester City have just taken things to another level recently. Not only have they made the… Continue reading Manchester City are one step closer to history and Sheffield Wednesday pulled off the impossible.
Mauricio Pochettino could be exactly who Chelsea are looking for.
So Chelsea look like they are going to go for Mauricio Pochettino as the next permanent manager. Given that results really haven’t picked up under Frank Lampard, there was never a real chance that Frank would be returning on a permanent basis. And I wouldn’t have put him in place as permanent manager anyway. Not… Continue reading Mauricio Pochettino could be exactly who Chelsea are looking for.
The UK is UEFA’s best bet for Euro 2028.
The UK’s final bid to host the 2028 European Championships is in. And it looks like a pretty good one. While England does dominate the bid, that is to be expected. I think the grounds are split quite nicely across the four countries. While England has the majority of grounds included in the bid, that’s… Continue reading The UK is UEFA’s best bet for Euro 2028.
Frank’s back for now, but Chelsea need to get their next move right.
Well, I did not expect to see Frank Lampard back at the helm at Chelsea so soon, even if it is only until the end of the season. I said at the time that Lampard was sacked that I hoped he would return someday, and be able to make a material success of the job.… Continue reading Frank’s back for now, but Chelsea need to get their next move right.

As a… Continue reading Pep Guardiola may have just caused the next major shift in football tactics.
Will Conte be Tottenham manager for much longer?
Well, I am not sure that Antonio Conte was ever the right pick for Tottenham. Spurs are a club who make a big deal out of playing football that is exciting to watch, that has flair and passion at it’s heart, that takes risks. Well, that is not who Antonio Conte is as a manager… Continue reading Will Conte be Tottenham manager for much longer?
Do Chelsea fans want Mourinho back?
Well, from what I have seen and what I feel about the subject; no, not really. Jose Mourinho is one of the most important figures in Chelsea history. Across his two spells in charge of the team, he won six trophies, and helped assemble a group of players that would write their own names in… Continue reading Do Chelsea fans want Mourinho back?
Chelsea’s January transfer activity is startling to watch.
You would have to be an idiot to deny that Chelsea are spending an absurd amount of money on players at the moment. Especially for a January transfer window. And some pundits have labelled the recruitment approach as ‘scattergun’. I really don’t agree with that. From what is being reported, Chelsea had been scouting all… Continue reading Chelsea’s January transfer activity is startling to watch.
Should the January transfer window still be a thing?
The January transfer market can often be a time of intense activity as teams look to fine-tune their squads for the remainder of the season. It can also look on the outside like clubs are panicking and frantically trying to reinforce an underperforming squad to improve results. But, every now and then the question is… Continue reading Should the January transfer window still be a thing?
