Arsenal’s Title Challenge Over Again

Today’s 3-1 win for Chelsea at Stamford Bridge effectively means that Arsenal’s title challenge is over for another year. The Gunners are now 12 points adrift of Chelsea, and given the difference in form of the two sides, that is a gap that they are highly unlikely to overhaul. Instead, Arsene Wenger will be looking over his shoulder as the two Manchester sides will now threaten Arsenal’s position in the top four. It’s a familiar story for Gunners fans. Kind of like an annual Groundhog day. Early in the season…

Third Super 6 in a week

Morning!!! Very early start for me today, thankfully I went to bed early last night. I say early, it was still close to 11pm when I got to sleep I reckon. I was shattered though. As well as my normal coaching that I have this morning with the boys, we got to take them somewhere special last night for another training session at Manchester United’s Carrington Training Ground. I’m not fully sure how it came about, but as we are a local club to the area, an opportunity came about…

A rare midweek Super 6

Good afternoon everyone, or it is classed as good evening now at this time? Who cares, it’s Tuesday and we have a another Super 6 prediction game to try to hopefully win. Yes, a midweek super 6, a very rare occasion these days with all the European and International football that tends to take up the majority of time in the week throughout the season. I’m certainly looking forward to it, I wonder how many people will remember to put their predictions in? I’m sure you normally get an e-mail reminder,…

Super 6 for the FA Cup

Morning all, how is it going? Another Super 6 weekend is here and it’s all about the FA Cup today. Are you off to a game? If so, please let us know. I’m having to do this prediction blog very very quickly as I’m off out asap and will not be back until later on this evening. Plus I had friends staying last night and when we said ‘it’s not going to be a late night’, turned out in us going to bed a 2am. Even worse when I walked…

Virgil is a Wanted Man

One of the hottest properties within the English market during this transfer window is Southampton’s Virgil Van Dijk. Apparently around 50 million is the asking price and even then the south coast clubs stance is he not for sale, though we all know every player has his price. Van Dijk has shown he is a silky, strong and adaptable centre half who can read the game superbly. He would be an outstanding addition to any back line in the Premier League. A STEAL OF A DEAL When he joined the…

Super Super 6, Super Super 6

Good afternoon to you all on this slightly chilly, but thankfully sunny Friday afternoon. I’ve had the window open for most of the day and it has been quite pleasant to be fair. It’s closed now of course as we head into late afternoon and early evening. I’ve done that more because I’m off out shortly, I’ve got a couple of things to do before heading back to watch the Trump Inauguration as he becomes the 45th president of the United States of America. Who’d have thought that would happen?…

The Regression of Rash or Genius Management?

So maybe just maybe, if you take into account recent results, Jose Mourinho seems to be getting somewhere with his Manchester United team, though after a 140m+ summer spend I think that is the least you would expect. But anyways things are looking up for the red half of Manchester, but one player who is most definitely not on the up is last seasons breakthrough star at Old Trafford, Marcus Rashford. TEENAGE STARLET Last season he more than took his opportunity when he was called upon, due to an injury to Anthony Martial during…
