  2. VAR- What is it and Does it Make Results Fair?

    For spectators, the reference of VAR by the commentators is a very new part of football terminology. And after the increased use during the World Cup 2018, we wanted to create an article investigating further into what VAR actually is.

    Believed to greatly improve the accuracy of referee opinions, below we will take a look into how this form of video recall is beneficial. And to review this fully, we will also discuss instances where the intervention of VAR was inconclusive or faulted.

    About VAR

    VAR stands for Video Assistant Referees, and its main purpose is to ensure that all decisions regarding the treatment of incidents are kept fair and accurate for both sides. As the on-pitch referees often could miss a significant occurrence of an infringement of rules, or even favour one squad over another, this type of reassurance from a team of referees improves the accuracy of ref decisions.

    The four main incidents where this type of recall would be needed

  3. Premier League awards outside of the top six: manager of the year, signing of the season, flop of the year and best team

    Another season ends which can only mean one thing: awards. With each year that passes by, the gap between the top six and the rest of the division looks to be widening in quality and financial resources.

    However, as Burnley and especially Leicester have shown in the past few years, there is a chance to rival some of the bigger teams in the country. 

    The rest of the Premier League might not get as much attention, so here are the awards for the teams outside the top six: 

    Manager of the Year: Rafa Benitez

    There are several candidates for this award, but Newcastle United’s Rafa Benitez deserves the plaudits purely because of what he was given at the beginning of the season.

  4. Five European players Premier League teams should keep their eyes on

    The transfer window might be shut until the summer, but teams across Europe will now start sending their scouting teams on missions to make sure they are finding the best available talent around the world.
    Every team wants a youngster in which they can develop and potentially sell-on for quadruple the amount they originally purchase them for some years down the line, and they will find those players scattered among Europe.
    Here are five players, all 21 and under, who are going to be in hot demand in the next 12 months: 

    France – Houssem Aouar, Lyon, central midfield

    Relatively unknown to most of Europe, Houssem Aouar has been having his breakthrough season at Lyon with some imm

  5. Ben Arfa: The Fairy-tale Comeback

    1st May 2016. By Ryan Baldi.
    There has been a breakout star in French football this season, making waves with Nice. An exciting winger capable of dribbling past several opponents in a single move, and with a wand of a left foot able to bend the ball into the top corner from almost any angle.

    This exciting new star is not some teenage sensation. He is not a newcomer to Ligue 1, imbued with the confident swagger of youth. He is 29-year-old former Newcastle United player Hatem Ben Arfa.

    Ben Arfa has been in outstanding form this season. His 17 league goals from 31 games has elevated Nice Ben Arfa: The Fairy-tale Comeback Niceto fourth position in Ligue 1, just two points behind second-placed Lyon and genuine contenders for Champions League qualification.

  6. The Problem at Newcastle United

    26th March 2016
    For the second season in a row, Newcastle United are staring down the barrel of a gun. As the weeks remaining in the Premier League campaign dwindle, the Magpies' chances of escaping relegation are looking ever slimmer. Can Newcastle repeat their narrative from last season and leap out of the lower echelons of the table at the exact right moment? Or will the Magpies end up playing in the Football League Championship for the first time since 2010?

    A New Manager

    Needless to say, Newcastle United officials are hoping for the former outcome. On March 11th, they even sacked their manager, sending Steve McClaren packing after just nine months in charge. He was rapidly replaced by Rafael Benitez, the only coach in history to have won titles in the UEFA Cup (Europa League), the Champions League, the UEFA Super Cup, and the FIFA Club

  7. The Biggest Signings of the January 2016 Transfer Window

    The January transfer window is never as eventful as the summer gap. Fewer teams dip into the market to flesh out their ranks or spend big on new stars, and fewer clubs are willing to let go of big stars. In other words, you're never going to see a Cristiano Ronaldo transfer in January, or any transfer fees that land in the top 10 or 20 of all time. Still, this year's January window was bigger than it has been in the past, with Premier League spending topping £1 billion for the first time ever. Read on to find out which clubs made the biggest signings of the month.

  10. A Preview of the Premier League 2015 Holiday Season

    In the 16 days that span between Saturday, December 19th and Sunday, January 3rd, the English Premier League will blast through what amounts to four weeks of competitive play. While most of the world is on vacation, in other words, England's top football clubs are heading into one of the busiest periods of the year. The festive season in the Premier League can define many teams' campaigns for the year, meaning the stakes are high for every soccer club hitting the pitch this holiday season.

Teams that hit a rough patch during the festive period, meanwhile, often take themselves out of title consideration.
