Pep Guardiola vs Jose Mourinho: Football Managers of the next generation

For the last few years, only two managers are hogging all the glory: Pep and Jose. When used together doesn’t it sound like a name of a comedy duo similar to Laurie & Fry. There is nothing in the club domain of football that they haven’t won. The sheer dominance showed by these two is unmatchable in every sense. Champions League-check. Club World Cup-check. League title-check. League cup-check. God knows what will happen if they venture in field of international. read more

Why Oh England Why! The English football team at International levels

In the early 2000s, English premier league was being widely telecasted in India for the first time. We were able to see players like Beckham, Bergkamp, Zola and many others perform the most wonderful things ever seen by us on a football pitch. Before we became familiar with the genius and ingenuity of the Brazilian team, before the start of 2002 world cup, many of us (well I think so) rooted for England to go all the way. Oh what a pity! The ineptitude hidden behind all the glamour. The paltry talent, very professionally hidden behind the pre-cup shim shams. Nothing has changed. Rather things have gone from acceptable to miserable state. What appals me is the indifference shown by fans when England didn’t even cross the group stages this time around. read more

Is Arsene’s time at Arsenal up?

This seemingly appalling question arises only because of the insurgence of the social media into every nook and cranny of the modern game. After almost 19 years into his job, Arsene has faced a barrage of criticism, vile abuse and anger. In recent years, fans and rivals have called for him to be sacked alleging a lack of success and trophies in the last 9 years and some humiliating results to bitter rivals and lower ranked opposition like the West Broms and the Derby Countys of England. But for a man of his stature and record is this justified? Or is Arsene’s time really up at Arsenal? read more

This Season at Manchester United

At the start of the season, whenever Man Utd played a match (especially at old trafford), there was always a sense of exasperation among the Man Utd fans. The reasons were plenty: is it going to be 4-4-2, 3-5-2, 4-3-3? And the most common expression used to be ‘Now who is injured!!’  Van Gaal was given the resurrection job after the disastrous Moyes era. Van Gaal said that he would require a period of 3 months for Man Utd to play his way. There were constant comparisons to the Fergie era which have continued and need to be stopped. The time has come for Manchester United fans(Yeah me to!!) to let go of the Sir Alex Ferguson reign and stop judging this new era by former glories. There was no way Van Gaal was going to come to Manchester United and adopt somebody else’s philosophy. read more

Downfall of the Milan giants: AC Milan & Inter Milan

Lost art of defending: Will the real defenders stand up

Take a look at this video:

Ignore the music please. Rapahel Varane absolutely destroys Barcelona. He not only intercepts the play but, boy, doesn’t he love his slide tackles. The way he tackled Messi and Fabregas was mind-boggling. There is a dearth of defenders like that now. read more
