  • Alphonse Areola: Fulham’s World Champion Goalkeeper

    All was well for Alphonse Areola in 2018, as he had just won the domestic treble with Paris Saint-Germain as the starting goalkeeper and was part of France’s World Cup-winning team as the country’s third-choice goalkeeper. Funnily enough, he achieved this feat before making his debut for the national team in the UEFA Nations League…

  • Vladimír Coufal: The Bargain of the Summer?

    Just over 12 months ago, David Moyes was reinstated as manager of West Ham United for his second stint, much to the disgruntlement of the fans. Having languished near the bottom end of the table for most of the 19/20 campaign, Hammers fans feared the worst heading into this season.    However, despite losing their…

  • The Re-emergence of Everton’s Alex Iwobi

    Carlo Ancelotti has got Everton fans hopeful of ending their long tiresome wait without Champions League football, with the Toffees finally being on the cusp of breaking into the elusive top six. Ancelotti’s men have massively improved this season, winning 19 games in all competitions out of a possible 32. To put that into perspective,…

  • Pascal Struijk: Leeds’ Impressive Youngster Tipped for International Success

    Leeds United’s first season back in the Premier League has been as exciting and swashbuckling as many who have followed Marcelo Bielsa’s Whites over the past two years expected it to be. High intensity pressing and marking coupled with rapid transitions into attack have laid the groundworks for the Argentine’s organised chaos approach to hit…

  • Player Analysis: Bryan Gil

    Ever since becoming the first player born in the 21st century to score a goal in LaLiga, Bryan Gil has been much talked about as a potential superstar, but it wasn’t until this season that he displayed his potential at the highest level. In his first loan stint at Leganés, he played for just 558…

  • Vladimír Coufal: West Ham’s Czech Warrior

    When West Ham lost their first 2 games of the season, many fans feared for the worst. With increasingly difficult fixtures to come, many expected the team to drop into the relegation zone by Christmas. So, massive credit has to be given to David Moyes who has exceeded expectations and led the Hammers to 4th…

  • Bernardo Silva: The All-Purpose Midfielder

    Manchester City are quite simply on fire. 20 wins in a row, a 12-point lead at the top of the Premier League table, a spot in the Carabao Cup final and a two-goal first-leg lead in the UEFA Champions League’s Round of 16 represent a brilliant time at the club after a slow start to…

  • Player Analysis: Daichi Kamada

    Despite taking seven points from their first three Bundesliga matches this season, Eintracht Frankfurt’s form nosedived as they subsequently failed to win their next nine matches (seven draws, two losses). However, the situation has improved since their trip to Augsburg in December. Following the 2-0 win at the WWK Arena, the Eagles have amassed 28…

  • Amine Gouiri: Nice’s Savior

    The one true spark in an otherwise bleak Nice attack is a young gun firing on all cylinders. His name? Amine Gouiri. With 14 goals and 6 assists in all competitions, Gouiri has spearheaded Les Aiglons to 12th in the Ligue 1 table — just six points off of sixth-placed Metz.   It takes immense…

  • Player Analysis: Ianis Hagi

    In Romania, this is the order: God, Sarmales, Hagi. Many know too well the experience of collapsing under the pressure of a legendary father. Marcus couldn’t scratch the surface of Michael’s legacy, and Enzo, Luca, and Theo have miles to go to before they’re considered alongside Zizou. However, pressure can make diamonds, Steph with years…
