Review Of A Breathtaking Premier League Season

What an absolutely breath-taking season that was. Not even the most glass half full optimistic Leicester City fan could have predicted what was to come for their club during 2015/16, let alone anyone else.

Divers Will Not Prosper For Much Longer

It is rare anyone dives nowadays. I mean it is 2016. All this technology we have access to is clearly being put to good use in the game we all love, and we certainly should not take it for granted. (Keep reading…) I mean look at Palace’s game at home

So Called Big Clubs Need To Take Their Medicine

So Leicester City ‘drop’ two points at the hands of lowly West Bromwich Albion, and Arsenal, Spurs and even Manchester City fans are clapping their hands in glee. The opportunity is there for them to now go and win the Premier League. NO, NO, NO. The league title is not
