  • How Elijah Adebayo Became the Cornerstone of Luton’s Attack

    Luton Town get the basics right and play to their strengths. There’s beauty in the simplicity, and in a team stacked full of redemption arcs and rags-to-riches stories, there’s little room for egos. It makes Luton’s one of the most compelling narratives in the Premier League, and one man with his head in the clouds but…

  • Conor Gallagher: The First Name on Mauricio Pochettino’s Team Sheet

    Conor Gallagher was eight years old when he joined Chelsea’s academy. He was 19 when he signed a three-year contract extension with the Blues before immediately heading out on loan to Charlton Athletic. Over the next three years, Gallagher would hone his skills at Swansea City, West Brom and Crystal Palace before returning to his…

  • Where Does Ryan Gravenberch Fit at Liverpool?

    Ryan Gravenberch’s start to life at Liverpool has been a mixed one. A part of the Reds’ summer rebuild, coined Liverpool 2.0 by manager Jurgen Klopp, the Dutch international has demonstrated in spells his bags of potential but hasn’t quite yet fully lived up to expectations. So where and how does Gravenberch fit into this…

  • Luton Town’s Miraculous Rise to Premier League Stardom

    To start this article, I’d like to mention two numbers: 13 and 76. Why are they significant? Because they’re the simplest way of showing that Luton Town are one of the best run football clubs in the United Kingdom.   Luton ended the 2013/14 season in first place in the Conference Premier League, the fifth…

  • Billy Gilmour: Brighton’s Slick Scotsman Is on the Right Track

    It was so clear at the beginning. In 2020 – days before the nation dived into lockdown and with Frank Lampard in his first spell as Chelsea manager – Billy Gilmour announced himself at Stamford Bridge.    In an FA Cup match against Liverpool, the 18-year-old played with blinding maturity and elegance. At the time,…

  • The Great Wall of Villa Park: Ezri Konsa

    Aston Villa began the Premier League season with a 5-1 defeat at Newcastle, with Tyrone Mings being stretchered off with a season-ending ACL injury. And yet, despite their ominous opening day defeat, Villa have enjoyed a stellar start to the campaign, with Unai Emery’s side sitting third in the Premier League table and topping their…

  • Tosin Adarabioyo: Can Fulham Keep Hold of their Defensive Star?

    From winning the EFL Championship in 2021/22 to impressing in their return to the top-flight to reaching the EFL Cup semifinals for the first time in club history, it has certainly been a memorable spell at Fulham for Tosin Adarabioyo. However, that chapter may be coming to an end sooner rather than later, with the…

  • Lucas Paqueta: West Ham’s Brilliant Brazilian Playmaker

    It was only about a month ago when national media really stood up and took notice of just how important Lucas Paqueta had become to this West Ham team. It wasn’t because of a single Paqueta performance that stood out; in fact, he’s been playing at an incredible level all season, but instead, it was…

  • Anthony Gordon Is Letting His Football Do the Talking at Newcastle

    There’s a bite of arrogance to Anthony Gordon’s play that wrangles the British media in just the right way. Dele Alli had it and lost it amidst his frenzied rise to stardom. You have to play the game, and Gordon has been treading the tightrope his whole career.    From diving to deserting, Gordon’s never…

  • John McGinn: Aston Villa’s Atypical Technician

    John McGinn’s competition is fierce – but there is a chance that he is the world’s most underappreciated footballer, a feat made even more remarkable by his Premier League status and talismanic form for Scotland.   Usually, truly ‘underrated’ players are based outside of the ‘major leagues’ in Europe. They are dominant domestically and productive…
