managerial-vacancies-who-next-for-sunderland-crystal-palace-leeds-united

With the season’s end of both the Premier League and the Sky Bet Championship there were plenty of managers given the axe and a few who went of their own accord. Three time winner of the Russian Premier League, Leonid Slutsky, recently became the new manager at Hull City after Marco Silva opted for a switch to Watford. Former Foxes boss, Claudio Ranieri, looked a serious contender for a return to English football, but that move was ruled out after Ligue 1 side, Nantes, announced his appointment this week. So now we look to the remaining clubs who are still trying to fill managerial vacancies and who the most likely […]

In the 129 year history of the British & Irish Lions, the Lions have travelled to New Zealand 13 times. In all previous visits to the Land of the Long White Cloud, the British & Irish Lions have only managed to win one test series against the mighty All Blacks, back in 1971. This statistic probably won’t fill the Lions faithful with a whole pile of confidence as their team departs for a six-week long adventure to New Zealand. But despite this stat, there does seem to be a low key sense of optimism surrounding this Lions Tour, as they try to unseat the back to back World Champions in […]

In years gone by, the words ‘extreme rules’ were synonymous with the glory days of ECW, however, nowadays the WWE have made those words their own, and since 2009 have presented us with an annual, watered-down version of Paul Heyman’s ECW hardcore heaven. Calling this Pay Per View ‘Extreme Rules’ is somewhat ridiculous, especially given the fact that this PPV seems to be getting less and less extreme as years go by. Momentum on Monday Night Raw has stalled in recent weeks, as we begin to see more odd segments that make little to no sense at all. In saying that, the WWE have done this in the past and […]

The 2017 Champions league final will be played on June 3rd 2017 at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff, Wales. Like it has been since the 2004-2005 edition, the tournament’s final will feature two teams from what many consider to be the four top tier leagues (La Liga, Premier League, Serie A, Bundesliga). In this case, the 11 time winner of the Champions League Real Madrid, play against the two times winner Juventus FC. The winner of the final will qualify to the semi-finals of the 2017 FIFA Club World Cup as the representative of UEFA. It will be the second time Real and Juventus played each other in a Champions […]

With the evenings getting longer and the sun even making the odd appearance, there’s only one thing left that signals the beginning of summer. the GAA Football and Hurling Championships have begun. Will Dublin be able to claim three in a row, are Kilkenny a spent force and will the #Mayo4Sam Brigade ever break “The Curse of ’51”? The traditionalists amongst us will consume The Sunday Game and take in the opinions of Spillane, Loughnane and Brolly and that’s it. Thankfully with the advent of on-demand audio, we’re now able to get more opinions and discussion points from former players than ever before. So, if you are sick of seeing Joe […]

The Championship play-off final is often referred to as the richest game in football, and for good reason! The winning team will not only earn promotion to the Premier League, but they’ll also receive a guaranteed £170 million piece of the TV broadcast rights pie. So, on May 29th in a jam-packed Wembley Stadium, the pressure will be on Huddersfield Town and Reading FC as they battle it out to see who’ll join already promoted Newcastle and Brighton in the top flight, next season. Below, we’ll remember how Huddersfield and Reading both got through their difficult semi-finals, and look ahead to what we can expect from the final on Monday. […]

The Europa League was once a competition that was treated with disdain by managers across European football’s biggest leagues. Long journeys, Thursday night matches, and a lack of quality all contributing to the general indifference to the competition.  However, with Champions League qualification as the carrot on the stick, it’s no wonder that we are seeing high profile clubs battle it out at the business end of the competition in the past couple of seasons. On Wednesday, Manchester United will attempt to clinch a place in next year’s Champions League, when they contest the Europa League final against Ajax in Stockholm. The importance of the game cannot be stressed enough, […]

In years gone by, Backlash was the main Pay Per View coming out of Wrestlemania and, on an occasion or two, even managed to upstage the granddaddy of them all. Iconic rematches, like Backlash 2000, when The Rock beat Triple H for the WWE title with help of Stone Cold Steve Austin comes to mind. Sadly, the Attitude Era’s long gone and the Backlash of old is too. Saying that, this Smackdown exclusive Pay Per View, which takes place in Chicago, does have many intriguing matches, and were going to take a look at everything on offer. Tye Dillinger vs. Aiden English The Perfect 10’s debut on the main roster […]

For the past four seasons, the Parisians have been the only show in town in the French League. Their financial capabilities enabled them to appear from a relative wilderness at the beginning of the decade, and become one of the trendiest teams on the continent. Such was their dominance, many questioned the overall standard of the French league. Their national achievements were not valued, especially when they often struggled to reproduce their form on the European stage. For a player, leaving the Spanish, German or English leagues to join PSG, was often met with distain. A cop out, of sorts. “I’m sure the wife is only mad to go shopping […]
