Old Trafford has got the fear factor back

We’re only two games into the new Premier League season and I’m already wondering how many points United will win it by. I’m not a Manchester United fan, but I’ll admit that last Friday evening, I felt quite giddy at the thought of watching them take on Southampton. The Reds have been completely transformed this season – […]

Is this going to be the most open Premier League ever?

I’m not sure we’ll see a English Premier League season like 2015/2016 for many years, but this season may be the most open… After last season’s madness, it isn’t surprising that the managerial merry-go-round has been in full swing.

Pep Guardiola is NOT one of the great managers!

If you ask football fans about the greatest modern day football managers, most will say Alex Ferguson, Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola. Let’s start with Sir Alex.
