Leicester City

Can Leicester City FC actually win the Barclays Premier League this year?

Can Leicester City win the premeirshup? There is no denying, \Leicester City\ have lasted in the top 4 longer than most (if not all) expected this season. They look set to stay there.

Raheem Sterling

Raheem Sterling’s first touch as a Manchester City player.

We can see that Raheem Sterling has had a fantastic start to his first game while wearing a Manchester City shirt. Sterling’s first appearance for the club  has happened in a pre-season friendly match against Italian side Roma. Steling put the ball over the line is just two minutes and seventeen seconds. This first goal came approximately a minute after his first touch of a football as a City player. Which ended up with what you see in the clip

Capital One Cup Final

In the 55th season of the Football League Cup, we watched two great teams do battle today in an effort to get their hands on the first trophy of the season. In a repeat of the 2008 cup final, Tottenham Hotspurs and Chelsea were pitted against each other at Wembley for the first time in 7 years, with Chelsea looking to make up for their earlier loss and Tottenham looking to repeat their 2008 victory. Alas for the Lilywhites, a

African Cup of Nations draws to a close

As the African Cup of Nation comes to a close in Equatorial Guinea, the Ivory Coast emerged victorious with a gripping penalty shoot-out that ended 9-8 against Ghana. From the very onset of the tournament there was drama, as intended host-country Morocco was forced to appeal for a delay thanks to an outbreak of the Ebola virus, leading Equatorial Guinea to be handed the honour instead. Next we saw defending Champions Nigeria fail to qualify for the tournament and finally

Big Boy Blues in the FA Cup 4th Round

So today marks the second day of the FA Cup 4th Round Play-offs and wow what a weekend this has turned out to be! In what can only be described as a calmer Sunday, this weekend has seen some of the most unexpected results and potentially a great weekend for the bookies or lucky punters. Today we have watched Arsenal narrowly beat Brighton and Hove 3-2 but Saturday was the day of Premier League nightmares as we watched 4 ‘ambassadors’


Masters Snooker decided and Arsenal knock City

Today brings to a close the 2015 Dafabet Masters and with it a new English Champion – Shaun Murphy, who managed to win the final 10-2, the largest margin in a final since 1988 when Steve Davis won 9-0. By winning he picked up a cool £200,000 prize and will no doubt see his number 11 seed position improve by a few places. (*Shaun Murphy is now ranked Number 7 in the world – 12th February 2015) This Masters tournament

City held and Liverpool pip Sunderland’s 10-men

Having beaten Sheffield Wednesday at home to progress to the 4th round of the FA Cup just a week earlier, Manuel Pellegrini was left ruing missed chances when his side fell to a 1-1 draw at Goodison Park. This leaves them 2 points behind Chelsea yet again and puts a further hurdle in their attempt to reclaim the Championship title. Manchester City were forced to field a changed team with Aguero starting on the bench with Vincent Kompany, and Yaya

Arsenal win while City, United and Chelsea all held to draws

In a week to remember for Arsenal but one to forget for the other ‘league leaders’ the Premier League saw 5 out of their 9 fixtures end in draws but particularly interesting were those of Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea. First up was Arsenal who managed to bag a brace in the first half courtesy of a Cazorla penalty and new signing Danny Wellbeck, but Kouyate nabbed one -back for the Hammers in the second half and the stats

2014 Fifa Club World Cup a bit of a laugh with Real Madrid easy victors

In a tournament that is meant to decide the best club in the world, it was rather disappointing to watch one team so heavily dominate the tournament and further cement European football as seemingly light years ahead again. Hosted in Morocco, Real Madrid cruised through the Tournament and beat San Lorenzo 2-0 in the final giving them their 4th title and equalling Milan’s record. With both of these teams given a bye until the Semi Finals, it was frustrating to

United beat arch-enemies Liverpool 3-0

For many United and Liverpool fans, this season hasn’t exactly proved the highlight of their illustrious pasts, but today spelt yet another notch in the arch-rivalry between the two clubs as they came head-to-head in their first Premier League battle of the season. The score line for the afternoon however seemed to share little of the true story. While United managed to notch 3 goals against their rivals, it was David De Gea who was the star of the show

Chelsea lose unbeaten run, Arsenal beaten, Liverpool held and City capitalise

In a week where we saw most of the Premier League big boys drop points and bookies rubbing their hands with glee, we thought we’d give you a quick recap of what just happened. While Manchester City were the only ‘big’ team to come out on top with a 1-0 victory over Everton, Liverpool dropped 2 points against Sunderland at home in Anfield, a team who were looking to bounce back from their thrashing by City last week. The only

Chelsea drop points to Sunderland while Tottenham beat Everton

In a Premier League twist before we start the run-up to Christmas, we saw the leading team drop points and finally leave a game without having scored a goal and a showdown between Tottenham and Everton end with Martinez ruing his teams refused penalty shout. In a match which saw both teams hit the woodwork and a Costa receive his 5th yellow card of the season (despite arguably escaping a red card for his confrontation with O’Shea), it seemed a

England beat Slovenia 3-1 in Euro 2016 Qualifiers

England held their nerve to beat Slovenia 3-1 in the Euro 2016 Qualifiers and complete perfect record of four wins from four games. After a boring and goalless first half, Slovenia scored in the 57th minute, courtesy an own goal by Jordan Henderson. However, it was not long before one England’s most loyal servants, Wayne Rooney equalised from the penalty spot with his 44th goal for his country. The equaliser knocked the wind out of Slovenia and resulted in another

Swansea beat Arsenal 2-1

Swansea exposed Arsenal’s weakness at the back with a brilliant 2-1 win over the North London side. Arsenal and Wenger were both in shock with the two Swansea goals that came with less than twenty minutes before eh final whistle. Arsenal was headed to a Top Four spot in the English Premier League, with an Alexis Sanchez goal early in the second half, but the Gunners lost the lead and the match with breath taking free kick 25 years out

United hold Chelsea as Hammers upset City and Newcastle knock Tottenham down

In a sort of ‘showdown’ weekend, West Ham took on Manchester City, Chelsea played Manchester United and Tottenham tackled Newcastle. First up came City who were away to the Hammers put up a rather lacklustre display and despite hitting the crossbar in the first half, succumbed to yet another knockback when Amalfitano and Sakho showed just why West Ham shouldn’t be underestimated this season. City seemed almost weakened by their earlier setback in the week to CSKA Moscow where they

Southampton beat Sunderland 8-0

Southampton beat Sunderland 8-0 to register one of the most emphatic wins in the English Premier League to date. One would thought that 3-0 at the end of the first half, with an own goal by Santiago Verging in the 12th minute, and then goals from Graziano Pelle and Jack Cork, would have seen Southampton take the pressure off and wind down the game with possession and substitutions, however, that was definitely not to be the case! In the second half

New Boys clinch it for United and Chelsea too strong for an off-target Arsenal

What a Premier League weekend as we see United return to the top-4 for the first time in what seems like forever and Chelsea regain their lead at the top of the Premier League with a 2-0 win over the Gunners. United can thank a strong display by new signings Di Maria and Falcao combined with a top-class performance by De Gea, who stopped a penalty and performed two phenomenal saves, for their return to the top 4.
