Ahead of Liverpool vs. Arsenal in the Premier League this Saturday evening, I wrote a piece for Just Football profiling 5 recent classic matches between the teams.
With the Premier League entering its final phase, the writers for Just Football sat down to discuss predictions for the season ahead. Who will win the title, who will go down, and will Jamie Vardy really reveal a “Brexit means Brexit” t-shirt?
(And yes, I did predict that Claudio Ranieri would not lose his job even if Leicester City got relegated…and a few hours later, he got sacked.)
On Wednesday night, Barcelona manager Luis Enrique announced that he will depart the club at the end of last season. It wasn’t as much of a shock as you might think – the writing has been on the wall since that 4-0 Champions League hammering at the hands of PSG.
With his impending departure in mind, I wrote a piece profiling the candidates to fill his shoes. Who will it be? Arsene Wenger? Mauricio Pochettino? Ernesto Valverde?
After a weekend of FA Cup shocks, Spurs ensured they didn’t follow Burnley and Leicester City by making an easy procession of their away cup tie against London rivals Fulham.
I wrote the match report for Just Football and rounded up 10 Tweets to sum up the game.
As part of my role at Just Football, I had the opportunity to interview Niall McGuinness, the manager of Welsh Premier League side Rhyl FC. McGuinness is unusual in his profession in that he is just 25-years-old.
McGuinness provided some fascinating insights into his job, and you can read the full interview over on Just Football here.
It’s January transfer window time, and the newspapers are chock full of transfer rumours. And though it’s exciting to see your club linked with a big name start, plenty of transfers that do actually happen make you wonder exactly why clubs bother.
I picked out 7 summer transfers that were totally pointless for Just Football. Take a look at the list here and see if you can remember that these players signed for these clubs.
On Sunday, Manchester United and Liverpool played out a 1-1 draw in the Premier League. Not quite the epic game it was billed as, it saw a poor performance on Paul Pogba (even with that hashtag) and a late equaliser for Zlatan Ibrahimovic to cancel out James Milner’s penalty.
You can read the full article – and the best 13 Tweets to sum up the game – over on Just Football here.
After Bob Bradley’s sacking by Swansea City, I wrote about the Welsh club’s problems, which run much deeper than their American (ex)manager.
Paul Clement looks likely to take over, but can he save Swansea’s listing, sinking ship? Read the full article here.
A day late in posting this here, but it went live on Just Football yesterday. In celebration of the long standing tradition of Boxing Day football, I wrote about the amazing Boxing Day in 1963 where 10 Division One games produced 66 goals.
The Premier League’s Boxing Day games this year were nowhere near as exciting, but forget that and got lost in the goal-filled past.
I love history, and I love football, so writing about the Christmas Truce football match of 1914 was too good an opportunity to pass up. Did British and German soldiers really play football in No Man’s Land during World War One?
