  1. Coutinho could fit in to the Barcelona team if they sign him this summer

    7th June 2017. By Ryan Baldi.
    Picked up from Inter Milan for Just £8.5million in January 2013, Philippe Coutinho has to be considered one of the greatest signings in Liverpool's recent history.

    In his three-and-a-half years with the Anfield club the Brazilian playmaker has 42 goals in 182 appearances, marking himself out as one of the Premier League's finest creative talents along the way.

    However, the 24-year-old's superlative form on Merseyside is a double-edged sword for the Reds; his performances have helped elevate Jürgen Klopp's men to Champions League qualification for next season, but they have also drawn the attention of Barcelona, who are reportedly considering a big-money summer bid for his services.

    Liverpool will be reluctant to part ways with their star man as they look to build towards a title push next term as well as aiming to be competitive in

  2. Luciano Spalletti Leaving AS Roma: A Massive Blow to the Club

    5th June 2017. By Edward Stratmann.
    Even though Luciano Spalletti did a fantastic job in his second stint managing AS Roma, which culminated in him leading the club to an exceptional second place finish in Serie A this season, he knew he'd had enough.

    While choosing to leave after acquiring the most points ever in a league campaign for the storied club (87) and achieving the highest points per game average (roughly two per game) of any manager in their history, Spalletti's decision to leave is entirely understandable, however.

    Under constant scrutiny and pressure from the relentless Roman media, especially in relation to his handling of the legendary Francesco Totti, who many felt Spalletti under used, his frustration was growing ever more evident as the season progressed.

    His anger overflowed back in May when quizzed about his decision to sparingly utilise Totti, where he made his feelings known to the press under no uncertain terms. "All this really disappoints

    The Arsenal Back Three: Key to FA Cup Success and Contract Extension for Wenger

    2nd June 2017. By Edward Stratmann.
    Arsene Wenger would've felt a palpable sense of vindication in his decision to deploy his back three in the FA Cup final, which he's done throughout the closing stages of the season, as the Gunners recorded a famous triumph over imperious Premier League winners, Chelsea.

    Despite Arsenal suffering a defensive injury crisis going into the game, that saw Laurent Koscielny, Gabriel Paulista and Shkodran Mustafi all unavailable, putting his capacity to play three at the back in doubt, Wenger stuck to his guns anyway. And his decision emphatically paid off, with Rob Holding, Nacho Monreal and Per Mertesacker performing brilliantly to nullify Chelsea's multidimensional attacking unit.

    Mertesacker, in particular, deserves special mention, as he hardly put a foot wrong in what was his first start of the season. Playing ostensibly the role of a sweeper at the heart of Arsenal's
