YOU’RE FIRED!

»Posted by on Nov 4, 2016 in Football | 0 comments

YOU’RE FIRED! There was a time when managers had a job and not a rolling contract, a time when a team appointed a manager who took a year or two to build his team and pursue a long term vision of the club. The news of Frank DeBoer’s sack at Inter Milan came as a shock to me: he was supposedly brought in on a project to rebuild Inter Milan, but 85 days and eleven games? What is wrong with football? Didn’t the board know he was coming from the home of football to the home of catenaccio? Couldn’t they have given him time to adapt, adjust and change? No. They just handed him the P45. What a shame! Alex Ferguson had a bad start to his Manchester United career, losing several games and winning only one away game the entire season but he went on to create a...

WHO WANTS IT?

»Posted by on Nov 4, 2016 in Football | 0 comments

WHO WANTS IT? How do you determine the winners and the losers in a frantic seven day period? Results? Position? Points? The bigger question however is, who is ready to win the Premier league from a host of teams tipped to do it? Initially we all said Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal. Liverpool showed up to spoil the party but just when we were tipping them to go all the way, Tottenham stopped the groovy train and as the excitement reached frenzied levels, Everton appended itself unto the back of the train. As of today, with a quarter of the season gone already, less than four wins separate the first sixteen (16) teams in the EPL, yes, just eleven points! City, Arsenal and Liverpool lead the way with seven dropped points, followed by Chelsea...

TOTTENHAM-LY DOMINANT

»Posted by on Oct 4, 2016 in Football | 0 comments

TOTTENHAM-LY DOMINANT Towards the end of last season, I noticed how powerful and forceful a team Tottenham had become, but for the inexperience and the blow out at Stamford Bridge which drained the team and cost them a crack at the title, Tottenham Hotspurs under Mauricio Pochettino for me, had come of age. If anyone needed reminding of how good Tottenham have been since the arrival of Pochettino, then you need look no further than Sunday at White Hart Lane; they harassed, bullied, out run, out fought, out thought and out played Manchester City for 90 minutes. I have not seen a team so dominant against City, who were reduced to ordinary men after all. From minute one to minute ninety, Tottenham played a high pressing, high energy game, led by Son and Lamela and...

SO SAD AS BIG SAM EXITS THE SCENE

»Posted by on Oct 2, 2016 in Football | 0 comments

September 28, 2016 SO SAD AS BIG SAM EXITS THE SCENE To see Sam Allardyce exit in such a way is very painful, both for football and England in general. Okay my bias is because I am a football student and I’m talking purely football matters and nothing else. Finally England got an indigenous manager who knew what he was doing – Sports Science, data analysis, statistics, psychology, fitness and player performance – and who could really take England far with his tactical and technical knowhow, so how could this have happened? They say once beaten is twice shy and Big Sam has been here before, several years ago with the bungs allegation and secret filming, so to see it happen again several years later makes me wonder who or why wanted him to fail so...

PEP CLAIMS HIS THIRD SCALP IN THE BIG BOYS’ CLOSET

»Posted by on Oct 2, 2016 in Football | 0 comments

September 21 PEP CLAIMS HIS THIRD SCALP IN THE BIG BOYS’ CLOSET Whichever way you look at it, this was always going to happen: Yaya Toure’s inevitable fallout with Pep Guardiola. When Pep took over at Barcelona several years ago, he cleared the deck at the club, getting rid of superstars Ronaldinho, Yaya Toure, Deco, Zlatan Ibrahimovich, Samuel Etoo and Eidur Gudjohnsen among several others. Who could have the audacity to take on the mega stars and axe the big names without the fear of failure? Pep could. He knew the B team at Barcelona so well, having coached them for a few years and was aware that at LaMasia, there were some talented youngsters he could promote to the first team and rely on, to make Guardiola’s football the ‘main character’ off the...

CITY SHOW UNITED WHO IS KING OF MANCHESTER

»Posted by on Oct 2, 2016 in Football | 0 comments

September 13, 2016 CITY SHOW UNITED WHO IS KING OF MANCHESTER If United fans felt that the problems created by the exit of Sir Alex Ferguson was an easy fix, reality was served on a cold plate for them on Saturday. Even with serial winner Jose Mourinho, the gulf in class between Manchester City and United since the departure of Sir Alex, was evident once again for everyone to see. If the hierarchy at Old Trafford felt that Jose’s arrival would cast a spell upon the team and take time through time travel ‘back to the past’ then Manchester City’s first half display asked them to think again. In the final season in 2012/13 with Sir Alex, United won the league with an average team, pipping City by 11 points. By 2013/14 season, the pendulum had...
