Mourinho still believes in the title

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is adamant that his side can catch Manchester City in the race for the title despite falling eight points behind the leaders.

Jose Mourinho admitted that there have been some disappointing results for his side and that they were hoping to cut the gap between themselves and Manchester City, but that the poor results had come in difficult games (against Chelsea and Liverpool) and that he has no complaint against his players.

United will miss out on the title – Craig Burley

Former Chelsea ace Craig Burley believes Manchester United will miss out on the Premier League title this season. The Red Devils have made a quick start off the blocks with 19 points from seven matches, and they are only trailing Manchester City at the top on goal difference.

Speaking to ESPN, Burley feels the Red Devils have made a step forward with resounding wins over the weaker sides, but there is a still a gap between them and the Premier League crown, he said: "I think clearly United have made a step forward, the results would suggest it. Against weaker teams last year they gave up points, they weren’t as clinical, they weren’t as strong, as organised. But I’ve not got them to win the league. I don’t think they’ve taken a big enough one for me but I do think they’ve moved in the right direction." (more…)

Germany Grows Up

Prior to the 2014 FIFA World Cup, Germany was positioned in 2nd place of the FIFA World Rankings but after the team of Joachim Low emerged as the victorious side with a 1-0 triumph over Argentina, they earned an escalation to the 1st spot, and they've been at the top pretty much ever since, even though there has been a changing of the guard in recent years. If anything they are more vibrant, exciting and entertaining now than ever, and well worth watching in action on fussballlivestream.tv if you get the chance!

The German squad that came out on top in 2014 has experienced many changes as Bastian Schweinsteiger, Phillip Lahm and Miroslav Klose all retired from the international stage, and the guys that we'd all watched on streams as kids socagol.tv slowly moved on to less competitive (MLS) football, or away from the game completely. Whilst this has been sad in some respects, with legends of the game now past their pomp, it also gives a chance to fresh young footballers keen to make a name for themselves! (more…)

PIRES BACKS ARSENAL STARS

Former Arsenal star Robert Pires says he is very confident that the current players of the club can put up a strong challenge for the Premier League title, despite the lack of Champions League football, and with serious competition in the forthcoming season.

Arsene Wenger, who managed the retired footballer, is still continuing in his role as manager after he decided to stay for two more years. The Frenchman has started spending money to add top players ahead of the season. (more…)

Would The Players of the Year Make The Perfect Team?

With the football season having ended across Europe, talk naturally turns to deciding who were the most impressive players on the continent during the course of the campaign. But could you make up a respectable team out of the various players of the year awards that have been handed out? We've had a go at putting together a team and, although we've had to be a bit creative in some positions, this side would surely be among the elite. As top European clubs like Chelsea and Juventus have dominated their respective leagues by using a 3-4-3 formation this season, that's what we'll be using for our team as well. Let's take a look at the players we've gone for. A number of these names will definitely be in the running next season as top goal scorer in their respective leagues and to take an early punt you can get £70 when you deposit £10 at Sky Bet for next season’s early betting markets. Petr Cech - Arsenal Goalkeepers tend to be kept out of the spotlight by attackers when the time comes to hand out individual awards at the end of the season. But Arsenal stopper Petr Cech - whose side won the FA Cup for the third time in the last four seasons - has at least got another trophy to put up on his mantelpiece at home. (more…)

Mourinho’s United To Mount Title Challenge

When Manchester United announced that Louis van Gaal had been relieved of his duties at the end of last season, there was only ever going to be one real candidate to take the hot seat at the Theatre of Dreams.

Jose Mourinho has had a certain affinity with United and their supporters since leading Porto a shock victory in the Champions League back in 2004; when the Portuguese’s side knocked Sir Alex Ferguson’s well-fancied Red Devils out of the competition. Even then, Mourinho always seemed destined to take over at United in the future... (more…)

Rooney Tops Pile of Manchester United Goalscoring Legends

Manchester United has a long history when it comes to late goals, winning dramatic derbies and even a Champions League with breakthroughs right at the death in injury time. However, it is hard to remember any moment in the past when a late equaliser at Stoke City led to as much widespread praise and acclaim as it did on January 21st.

At any other point in Wayne Rooney’s career, his late free kick at the Britannia Stadium would have been seen as an important effort which rescued a valuable point in the club’s continued search for a place in the Premier League’s top four. But this most golden of goals actually took his total tally for United to an astonishing 250, surpassing Bobby Charlton’s record to make Rooney the club’s all-time leading goalscorer. (more…)

Guardiola quick to make mark at City

After Manchester City’s struggles last season under former manager Manuel Pellegrini, the appointment of Pep Guardiola has quickly renewed confidence at the Etihad, with the former Barcelona and Bayern boss wasting little time in adapting the club to his methods. The two times Champions League winning manager has enforced strict requirements for his squad, and with the Spaniard seemingly not content with his current assets, we can expect to see more activity in the transfer market before the window closes at the end of the month.

Guardiola has initially signed a three-year contract, but has set no time-frame for his departure, despite candidly admitting it won’t be his final job in football. (more…)

England and Wales gear up for Battle of Britain

The upcoming European Championship promises to be an intriguing tournament thanks to the increase from sixteen to twenty-four participating teams, with three of the Home Nations travelling to France in the hope of glory. England, Wales and Northern Ireland will fly the flag for the United Kingdom this summer, and while the other two will make their debuts at a European Championship, Roy Hodgson’s men will look to end fifty years of hurt in all competitions.

It felt inevitable that the Euro 2016 draw would throw up a Battle of Britain during the group stage, and it did not disappoint with England set to face Wales in a mouth-watering Group B clash that could prove pivotal. Betway have installed the Three Lions as favourites to win the game, but although both nations may have contrasting ambitions as to how far they can progress in the tournament, they will value the fixture as a great opportunity to get one over on a rival.
