Manchester United's troubled forward line and their need to get Wayne Rooney firing

Wayne Rooney needs to start firing As the clock ticks down to the end of the transfer window, Manchester United’s Louis Van Gaal must decide if it is worth taking the gamble of risking the wait until January before he can address his forward line. A move for Barcelona’s Pedro looked set to materialise until Van Gaal called it off and Chelsea stepped in, and a £60 million bid for Bayern Munich’s Thomas Muller appears u

Infamous football moments recreated by children

Football is central to a number of people’s lives around the word. It is an escape for some from the monotony of workaday lives, to others, their lives are built around it as they dedicate themselves to teams and players over years of dedication to the game. It is a game that has enthralled and captured many minds through its magical moments and sometimes utterly unbelievable unpredictability that writes storylines that no one could sitti

Most national squads often have more than 2-3 players competing for all positions

5 nations and their potential 2018 World Cup starting lineups

It seems just yesterday that a magical world cup campaign in Brazil reached its conclusion, culminating in an inevitable German triumph at the Maracanã. Fast forward twelve months and it seems ludicrous to even think about the next edition but, with pressure mounting on the organisation that runs the beloved tournament, it can be difficult to keep national football off the mind, especially as we look for something to fill the footballing v

7 best Panenkas scored in crucial situations

Lionel Messi’s penalty against Getafe was called the best Panenka by the creator himself The Panenka is one of the riskiest penalty techniques in football. It may look like easy work, and might not seem very skilful either, but the nerve required to execute such a penalty is beyond compare.  In this technique, the run up to the ball remains the same as any penalty, but instead of kicking the ball directly into the goal trajectory

European Under-21 Championship Round-Up

Another international tournament has finished and England have, somewhat unsurprisingly, underperformed. Following in the footsteps of the seniors at last summer's World Cup, Gareth Southgate’s men crashed out at the group stages, although some pride can be taken from the fact they were the only team to beat eventual winners Sweden. Not that that stands for much. Perhaps it makes their visit to the Czech Republic even more frustratin

The combination of a star-studded squad and a first ever foreign manager

U21 Euros 2015: Best XI from the Group stage

As it was, England’s U21 European Championship came to an end, not with a bang, but a whimper. Gareth Southgate’s team finished bottom of Group B, mirroring the senior side from 12 months ago at the 2014 World Cup. It was a disappointing end to a competition that promised so much given the talent at Southgate’s disposal, but it just wasn’t to be for England, who were outclassed by Italy U21 on Wednesday in a ma

6 instances when players were sent-off after the final whistle

Football brings the best and the worst out of footballers. Fouls are part of the game and some of the most cynical fouls are the ones that prevent the opposition from scoring or creating a goal scoring opportunity. Referees brandish yellow or red cards depending on the severity of the offence. The sight of a card coming out of one of the pockets is a common sight during most games.  What is uncommon is cards being dished out after the
