Champions League Final – Juventus v Real Madrid

Juventus defensively too strong? Juventus come into this match in a much better frame of mind than when they face Barcelona 2 years ago.  Then Barcelona beat Antonio Conte’s men 3-1.  This team is much changed though the core of team remains the same.  Buffon, Marchisio and Bonucci all played in that match and will want to give the Old Lady of Turin their 2nd Champions League.  Incredibly for a team of Juventus’s stature they have only ever one the

Has Claude Puel been a success at Southampton?

The end of season manager merry-go-round has begun. Last week, Hull’s Marco Silva replaced Walter Mazzarri at Watford. Then Sam Allardyce left Crystal Palace. Who will be next for the chop? Southampton boss Claude Puel, perhaps. On paper, that seems surprising. The Saints finished 8th in the Premier League and reached the League Cup final. So what’s the issue?

The Europa League Final – Ajax vs Manchester United

The Europa League hasn’t always had the best reputation in English football. Liverpool won it in 2001 and Chelsea won it in 2013 but the consensus is that the competition is gruelling and second-rate. This year, however, Manchester United are taking it very seriously. José Mourinho has been resting his star players for weeks ahead of Wednesday’s final against Dutch side Ajax. The success of The Special One’s first season at Old Trafford rests on it.

The Curious Case of Liverpool’s Daniel Sturridge

Liverpool are the second highest scorers in the Premier League this season and yet their top individual, Sadio Mané, only has 13 goals.

Marcus Rashford’s Difficult Second Season

It’s very easy to forget that Marcus Rashford is still only 19. When he stepped up and scored that stunning free-kick in the Europa League semi-final against Celta Vigo, he looked like a senior pro who had been doing this for years. But in fact, this is only his second season for Manchester United. And that was only his 66th first-team appearance. For Rashford, Zlatan Ibrahimović’s injury came at the perfect time. He now has the game-time to salvage his frustrating season.
