This could be the year for another surprise winner of the FA Cup

The last time a side outside of the ‘Big Six’ won the FA Cup was Wigan Athletic in 2013. Could this be the year for another surprise?  I think there are a few sides outside of that so-called ‘Big Six’ that will feel they have a chance of winning the competition. The big guns all […]

How will Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s success be judged between now and May?

His Manchester United managerial record so far reads two games, two wins. Yes the opposition might only have been Cardiff City and Huddersfield Town, sides that sit 17th and 20th in the division respectively, but there’s already a positivity around Old Trafford under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer that hasn’t been felt for some time. Tougher tests […]

Ray Parlour’s Boxing Day Predictions

If the excitement of Christmas Day wasn’t enough to look forward to, football fans up and down the country are being treated to a bumper Boxing Day fixture list with 18 of the 20 Premier League teams playing on the day. Southampton and West Ham round off the action on the 27th and our man […]

A defining week in Liverpool’s season?

With 39 points from a possible 45, only four teams have enjoyed a better start to a season in Premier League history than Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool have done this term. Three of those four sides went on to win the title. The fourth is of course, the current Manchester City team.   Five points better […]

The Premier League: Final Reckoning

The Great Fox Hunt: Leicester vs Tottenham

Room for a small one? It’s the last game before the Premier League’s big finish on Sunday. In a Thursday-shaped-space usually reserved for the Europa League, two of the most talked about teams of the last two seasons tee off. Spurs must be wondering what it takes for them to win a title. They’ve been […]

Playing for Pride: Southampton vs. Manchester United

The limelight may lie elsewhere, but try telling that to Man U this midweek. Mourinho has gambled his team’s entire season (and likely his job security) on the Europa League. This leaves the awkward-affair-cum-PR-nightmare of finishing off the league season. They’re not doing a great job thus far, having not won any of their last […]

Battle of the Blues: Man City vs Leicester

Guardiola seems to have Pepped up Man City. After an indifferent mid-season, the boys in light blue are firing on all cylinders for the home straight. They smashed Crystal Palace to smithereens last week, due in no small part to the sustained return of talismanic captain Vincent Kompany. This season’s City are no sure-thing though, […]

The Final Dice Throw: Spurs vs Man United

Be warned: these blokes could get totes emosh. For starters, it looks like Spurs’ second title challenge in as many seasons will end in heartbreak. But here’s the real feels: Saturday is the last time Spurs will play at White Hart Lane. Ever. Ready the waterworks…. The prospect of Wembley home games next season might […]

Saints can take big step to safety

Southampton can drag Swansea City and Huddersfield further into the relegation mire by inflicting a sixth home defeat of the season on Everton this weekend. Sam Allardyce’s side have improved recently, taking 14 points from their last seven fixtures, but Saints showed in their 2-1 victory against Bournemouth that they have the appetite to escape […]
