15:00 Wednesday 27th December 2017

13:00 Wednesday 6th December 2017

English fans couldn’t really ask for much better, right? For Gareth Southgate, the World Cup draw is as good as it gets. It is a relief to avoid E and F, as it contains Brazil and Germany. This is England, though, it can still be…

The Toffees are crumbling: Is the next manager at Everton doomed already?
09:40 Wednesday 29th November 2017

They’re too good to be fighting for relegation, too good to be a mid-table, but not good enough to be a “top 6” club. This was the dilemma facing the Everton hierarchy in the summer after a 7th place finish. A superb season…

Champions League
Liverpool: A defence away from being great

16:18 Friday 17th November 2017

In light of so many players with contracts expiring next summer, it’s the perfect time to bring in some fresh players. It’s fair to say that right now, just one of these are first team starters at the moment and it’s somehow…

07:42 Thursday 9th November 2017

It's been a highly fruitful year for African footballers plying their trade in Europe. Many African exports have held their own, even going on to outshine their European counterparts. That's why it'll be a tough call picking the best African…
