2015-16 Premier League Season Preview
So, we’re a mere day away from the grand return of the Barclays Premier League. Whilst other leagues are yet to kick off and others have already got a few games finished, the Premier League is yet to start and – for any of us – it’s the very pinnacle of the footballing season.
However, this season looks like it might be posing a bit of a different challenge to the competitors than previous seasons have – stagnation looks to be the aim of the game, with very little expected to change by many with regards to …

With Raheem Sterling’s controversial BBC interview earlier this week, we’ve taken a look back at some of the best, and worst, player interviews in recent history.
Sterling wanted to get his point across, claiming he is not a “money-grabbing 20-year old” after turning down Liverpool’s latest contract offer of £100,000 a week.
There has been a backlash from the Liverpool fans and management, who believe a player, should not be doing these interviews, especially at such a pivotal point of the season. Liverpool are vying for 4th in the Premier League, which would secure Champions League …
The January transfer window is slowly coming to an end, with only just over a week away until it shuts. So the rush is now on for teams to secure those final deals, and bring in any necessary players which they may think help them climb the table or help them win the battle to avoid relegation.

Following on from our last blog post about super rich clubs (mostly thanks to their owners), we thought we would look at the best and worst run football clubs from within the last 10 years in the English leagues.
For every super rich owner who plows in money, offers stability and develops the club there is a an owner who sells the best assets, fires staff after half a season and doesn’t care about the fans, history or traditions.
Firstly let’s take a look at the worst owners, which clubs they bought, their personal history and where they are now:
