5 Potential England Managers

 

Slovakia v England: 2018 FIFA World Cup Qualifier

Last night, Sam Allardyce has left his England post but no one really got used to him being England manager anyway – after all, he’s only had one game in charge in his 67 day tenure. It has however left the FA with a dilemma, having been unprepared for his departure. Who will be prepared enough to take a role so associated with failure and attempt to keep a whole country happy? I’ve made a list of a few potential suitors who England could go to. Continue reading

After a supposedly ‘dominant’ performance from England last night, they failed to defeat a lacklustre Russian side that were there for the taking in the first half. I expected the dominant response following the last-minute equaliser by Vasili Berezutski would be one of criticism towards England for what should have been a simple victory, however all that seems to have come out of it is the response that England were ‘unlucky’.

How Tyson Fury Masterminded World Title Success

Last night, Tyson Fury successfully captured the IBF, WBA, WBO, IBO and The Ring World Heavyweight Championships against Wladimir Klitschko in what was a war of attrition in Dusseldorf, Germany.

Why then, did he seem so lost in the ring against a man who took a huge step up to face him? Continue reading

After being spotted on a night out following Villa’s embarrassing 4-0 defeat to Everton, Jack Grealish has been banished to the U21s by new boss Rémi Garde.

Jack Grealish has been seen as one of the countries top youngsters since rising up the ranks and breaking through under the helm of Paul Lambert. The 20-year-old had previously been the subject of a tug-of-war between Ireland and England to secure his International commitment.

Joleon Lescott to Bolster Aston Villa Defence

A £2million deal to bring former England international Joleon Lescott to Villa Park could prove to be one of Tim Sherwood’s most important summer signings. Signing from West Bromwich Albion, Lescott will bolster a largely inexperienced defence which has lost Holland international Ron Vlaar at the end of his contract in July and still has former Arsenal and AC Milan stopper Phillipe Senderos on the sidelines.
