  • Are Everton Heading In The Right Direction Under Marco Silva?

    It was a rough start to 2018 for Everton Football Club. An absolutely horrid January featured losses to Manchester United and Tottenham in the league, along with a FA Cup loss to rivals Liverpool. The summer signings which Everton paid good fees for weren’t working out either. Things were teetering at Goodison, to the extent…

  • Why Gregg Berhalter Is The Right Choice For The USMNT

    In my last article, I was highly critical of the quality, or lack thereof, regarding coaching football in the United States. I wrote about how youth coaches in America prioritize speed over intelligence, how seriously European nations have taken coaching education, and the fact that the U.S. Soccer Foundation (USSF) still hadn’t hired a new…

  • Why Chelsea Cannot Sell Callum Hudson-Odoi

    Callum Hudson-Odoi is undoubtedly one of the hottest prospects in Europe right now, with Bayern Munich increasing their bids for the English winger, and with the Germans inching closer to the reported £40 million asking fee, it is possible that Hudson-Odoi will become the latest English winger, after Jadon Sancho, Ademola Lookman, and Reiss Nelson, to…

  • What Mick McCarthy Must Do In The Next Two Years As Ireland Manager

    To put it politely, Irish football is in a state of crisis at the moment. After a miserable 2018, which consisted of relegation from the UEFA Nations League as well as controversy within the squad, Martin O’Neill parted ways with the Irish football team.

  • Kalidou Koulibaly: Playing in a League That Turns a Blind Eye to Racism

    Kalidou Koulibaly is one of the world’s elite centre-backs. The 27-year old is a brick wall in Napoli’s backline and has attracted attention from some of the world’s biggest clubs aiming to acquire his signature. He’s a world-class defender, but above all, he’s a human, a human who deserves respect like everyone else. Such common…

  • Championship: Team of the Mid-Season

    As we pass the halfway point in this enthralling Championship campaign, it’s time to take a look at the standout players in the division thus far. Due to the increasing levels of quality in the league this season, it was incredibly hard to narrow down the vast list of quality players to just 11, but…

  • La Masia: The Maintenance and Revitalisation of Barça’s Youth

    Youth production from FC Barcelona’s La Masia academy is renowned across the world. An intense level of pride is associated with the system that focuses on developing players into well-rounded human beings, instead of solely footballing machines. There have been amazing players to come through the system, from Pep Guardiola to Lionel Messi, and Andrés…

  • Raheem Sterling Is Right, So Listen To Him

    Let’s talk about Raheem Sterling. The 24-year old is coming off his best ever season and is showing no signs of slowing down. If he’s not there yet, he’s agonizingly close to being labelled world class, and he will be a superstar in football for years to come. He is a man doing his job…

  • Rescuing Southampton’s Identity: How Saints Can be Saved

    Southampton were once the envy of the Football League. How else could you perceive the club that rose from England’s third division, empowered a generation of young talent, appointed the right managers, scouts, and personnel, and ultimately, ended up at the pinnacle of the “non-top six clubs” in the Premier League? They were the club…

  • Klopp’s Stubbornness Is Holding Liverpool Back From Its True Potential

    It’s been three years since Jürgen Klopp was appointed Liverpool manager. October 8, 2015 was the start of a revolution that has led the club back to where it’s supposed to be, fighting for titles both domestically and internationally. But while Klopp has turned the club into challengers, is he holding them back from becoming…
