Why Joe Hart's Torino Move Is Good For England

I have a theory as to one reason (of many) the England National Team tends to underperform in major tournaments: the players all play in the same league. Every England international plays in the Premier League. One might argue this breeds familiarity and is therefore good for the national team, but I think it leads to a lack of stylistic variety in the team and makes the payer pool stagnant. It's basically like inbreeding, is what I'm saying.

DeAndre Yedlin Cracks Premier League’s Top 5 Fastest Players; Fulham Goalie Somehow Makes Top 10

The list of the 10 fastest Premier League players from the 2018-19 season is out, and the man at the top of the rankings is a bit of a surprise. But the biggest surprise is the position of the man coming in at No. 9.

Pep Guardiola’s Reaction To Man City’s Sixth Goal Sums Up Our Feelings On Boring FA Cup Final

Manchester City demolished Watford 6-0 in the FA Cup final on Saturday at Wembley. It was an expected result and the Hornets were never really in it, even if it was just a two-goal game at halftime. 

The win wrapped up a domestic treble (quadruple if you count the mostly meaningless Community Shield), the first ever in England. 

So dominant were the Citizens that their coach, Pep Guardiola, was made extremely uncomfortable by the final score. After Raheem Sterling completed his hat trick to make it 6-0, Guardiola’s reaction said a lot.

Marcus Rashford And Jesse Lingard Deserve The Same Criticism Pogba Gets

Paul Pogba is a polarizing figure at Old Trafford.

When Manchester United bought him from Juventus in 2016, he was largely anticipated to be the spearhead of Manchester United’s title charge. But that hasn’t been the case, especially this past season.

Even though Pogba has scored 13 goals and assisted nine in the Premier League, he is the team's most-maligned player. The way he carries himself, his style of play and his character in the dressing room have all been brought into question. Despite his stats this season, Paul Pogba has been poor.

Idiotic Mistake In The Back Leads To Leeds Implosion In Promotion Playoffs

Everything was going perfectly for Marcelo Bielsa and Leeds United on Wednesday. 

Then, a shocking mistake between a goalie and his defender started a snowball effect that resulted in a stunning comeback by Derby County, which defeated Leeds United 4-2 (4-3 on aggregate) to advance to the final in Wembley against Aston Villa. 

Wow-lverhampton Concludes Surprise Of The Season Finishing Seventh

With the 2018-19 English Premier League season adjourning, Wolverhampton has officially stunned the EPL, finishing one of the greatest seasons by a promoted team.

The Wolves finished 16-9-13 with 16 points coming against England’s top six.

The team also finished with a +1 goal differential. The team’s goals conceded mark of 46 is an impressive mark ranking them 5th in the league. But the offense needs a spark with a ranking of 14th in goals scored.

Man City Is Trying To Use Good Reporting To Weasel Out Of A Champions League Ban

Manchester City is facing a ban from the Champions League, according to a report this week from the New York Times. Now, Man City is setting itself up to use that report to get out of such a ban.

The New York Times reported UEFA officials will seek a one-year ban from the Champions League for the Premier League-winning club for misleading UEFA’s financial regulators, citing people with knowledge of the case. A ruling could be made within the week.

Colorado Rapids Set Mark For Futility While Arsenal Finishes Fifth In Bad Week For Owner Stan Kroenke

Despite a 3-1 victory over Burnley at Turf Moor today, Arsenal finished outside the Premier League top four for the third consecutive campaign. A damning run of late-season form saw the Gunners ultimately stumble to fifth.

Following a 2-0 victory over Newcastle United back on match week 31, Arsenal sat third in the table, but over the final seven matches of the season, the Gunners won only two, drew one and lost four to finish one point behind fourth-place Tottenham.

Manchester City Wins The Premier League After Dramatic Final Day In England

The 2018-19 Premier League title came down to the final match day. Manchester City, on 95 points, needed to take care of business away to Brighton and Hove Albion, who had ensured their own Premier League survival the previous weekend.
