Frank Leboeuf calls the Ballon d’Or award a stupid idea

There are legends of the game who are not enthralled with the Ballon d'Or award and how it’s presented.  Former Manchester United legend, Patrick Evra was critical of the award and he said, he’s sick of seeing Messi winning the award again. The same goes for Chelsea legend, Frank Leboeuf who also made an assertion that the award sounds senseless to him.

Carragher urges Newcastle to learn from Man United’s transfer mistakes

Former Liverpool star and now Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher has advised Newcastle United to use Manchester United's expensive mistakes in the transfer market as a case study if they want to win the Premier League before 2030. It can be recalled that Saudi Arabia's Public Investment Fund took over the Magpies from Mike Ashley earlier this month, making them the richest football club in the world. This means that the Magpies will have efficient spending power and this would make them a threat to the big boys in the Premier League. The Tyneside outfit are now expected to be one of the most powerful clubs in England in years to come, toeing the path of Manchester City who have been a force since the takeover by Sheikh Mansour. Regardless, Carragher believes that the money won't gu...

Which Premier League team has the biggest wage spend in 2021?

Can a football team buy themselves success and win the title? There will be many that would suggest that this is something that history has taught us in the past. Chelsea and Manchester City are just two examples that many football fans would point to as evidence that this is the case, as both had managed to become successful once they were acquired by billionaire owners Roman Abramovich and Sheikh Mansour respectively. Indeed, it could be argued that there is evidence of it happening in other leagues, as well, with Paris Saint-Germain perhaps another obvious football club to have benefited from a stream of wealth. When looking at the wealth that has been spent by teams, though, it should be important to also look at the money that is being spent on wages as these figures can be e...

Arteta wants Lacazette out; Two replacements identified

After topping the table of Premier League spenders in the last transfer window with a £148m outlay on six new legs, Arsenal are plotting a Premier League raid to replace French striker Alexandre Lacazette who’s not regarded as an asset by Mikel Arteta going forward. It may look unfair to Lacazette but Arsenal have begun preparations for life without the Frenchman who signed for the Gunners in 2017 from French giants, Lyon. The North London side are strongly plotting a potential swoop for Premier League striking duo Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Ollie Watkins. The former is plying his trade for Toffees while the latter is a Claret attacker. If possible, Arsenal could even look for a potential suitor for the 30-year-old as soon as possible when the winter transfer window opens instead o...
