Salah deserves the PFA player of the year award more than De Bruyne

Liverpool forward Mohammed Salah and Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne have put up a fantastic display this season in the premier league and as a result became the main contenders for the PFA player of the year award which Salah won ahead of De Bruyne. Without doubt, both players have been exceptional in their performance this season and have rescued their clubs on various occasions, but the big question is who deserves the award more?. I will simply choose Salah over De Bruyne on who deserves to win the award even though some people will not agree with the idea, anyways, judging by their individual performance, team’s quality and consistency Salah slightly edge past De Bruyne and in that regard deserves the award.


Indeed, this is not to show that one is better than the other, but an evidence to prove that Salah deserves the award more this year, moreover, De Bruyne was a major key player behind Manchester City’s Premier League triumph this season. Nonetheless, if we take the …

Finding a better replacement for Arsene Wenger won’t be an easy task

Replacing an outgoing or sacked manager with a better one is something that most football clubs often encounter. This is a situation that often makes the rich clubs splash enormous amount of money to hire a top class manager for the job in order to remain on top, an amount the average club cannot afford. Despite the huge offer, there is still no certainty of winning trophies which often result in managers being sacked again and again before reaching a desired state. I feel this is the same phase that Arsenal football club might likely face as their 22 years running manager is about to go, although since they are one of the richest football clubs in the world it is possible that the encounter will be for a short period provided they are willing and ready to splash huge amount in getting the services of a top manager and succumb to their requirements.


If we review Arsene Wenger’s structure we’ll realize that he’s more of a business oriented manager not the huge spending type who’s just a…

Inability to take chances robbed Bayern Munich of a place in the UCL final

Analysing the UCL game between Bayern Munich and Real Madrid in which Real qualified. Aside the mistakes that gave Real the chance to score, Bayern was a much better side in both legs of the ties with plenty of chances to edge past their rival. Despite the chances Bayern were unable to utilize their chances and it robbed them of a place in the UCL final taking place on 26th May 2018 in Kyiv.


Sincerely, failure to convert chances irrespective of whether you play well or not in football can prove costly to a team progress into the next phase and in that regard Bayern are no exception. They couldn’t score with the numerous amount of opportunity they had as a result of their hard work, however, Madrid on the other hand converted every single one that comes their way. This makes it seem like Madrid’s priority is to qualify at all cost while Bayern’s aim was to play better. Bayern wasted too many chances in the first leg and a few in the second leg that could have secured them a place in the…

Arsene Wenger resignation will result into a new era of either worse or better football at Arsenal

It’s been over two decades now since Arsene Wengerassumed his role as Arsenal’s manager and since I grew up to know football as an Arsenal fan, I’ve never experienced anything different with the team’s style of play, managerand tactics apart from the change in players that often occur.


However, I believe now isthe time for the fans and supporters of the club to experience something new, a different era of probably better or worse football at Arsenal since Arsene Wenger has finally called it a quit at the end of the 2017/2018 season, a decision I termed “walk of faith to step down” at least there would be no more “Wenger out” banners. 


This will serve as a new atmosphere and beginning for the club with a new manager coming next season, althoughthere’s always the big question of what’s going to happen next, however, if you keep doing things the same way, don’t expect to get a different result thus I think Arsene Wengerstepping down is a good thing for the club. Finally, even though he’s g…
