WEST HAM UNITED: BIGGEST BANANA SKIN OF THE SEASON

Posted by & filed under News Review.

Dear friends, let’s look at some things today and be at one with the footballing gods. Firstly, the Premier League table.

THE 3 YEAR PLAN TO CHALLENGE THE BIG TWO (LONG READ)

Posted by & filed under News Review.

Jurgen Klopp tied himself to Liverpool until 2026. That’s a big move. He’s basically going to attempt a huge rebuild at Liverpool without the genius of Michael Edwards sitting behind him. A huge ask. I suspect this is his final deal and I also think Pep G will duck from Manchester City before 2026. So… Read more »

ARSENAL RIDE THE LUCK TRAIN TO TOP 4 – WHAT DID WE LEARN?

Posted by & filed under News Review.

If you are coming here thinking I’m going to gloss over the luck today, you’d be wrong. We were lucky. Woodwork. Marginal offsides. Missed penalties. A worldie save. A blatant handball. That second half was built for a United comeback. Do I give a f*ck? Absolutely not. Arsenal haven’t rode their luck against a big… Read more »
