Is It Coming Home?

Posted on July 9, 2021 at 7:25 am

You all know what I am on about, the UAFE Euros for 2020 that were postponed to this year! If you don’t know, then where have you been? England made it to the final! They will be facing Italy on Sunday 11th at 8pm in Wembley stadium to see who will be the champions. This is England’s football teams biggest achievement since they won the World Cup in 1966!

Now, can we expect the football to come home to England? Looking at how our team has played throughout their Euro matches, there is a very high chance that we will in fact win this tournament, making it a moment in history to remember.

But, do not set your hopes too high, as if you have been following the Italy matches, you will see that they have also been playing astonishingly, meaning it will be a challenging match for both teams! The winning team will depend on luck on the day, all we can hope is that it does in fact come home!

Equipment Needed To Play Football

Posted on January 7, 2021 at 3:00 pm

One of the most popular sports to play is Football, but what equipment is needed to play this sport?

The most valuable piece of equipment which you will need to play football is of course a ball. Any medium-sized ball can be used to play football, however, we would recommend a leather ball which has been purposely made for this sport.

If you wish to participate in football we will highly recommend you investing in shinpads. These are a hard piece of plastic which go around your shins. Used to protect you when playing, as the ball can sometimes be passed with some force.

You will also need to set up a goal. You do not necessarily need a netted goal unless you are playing competitively. You can use anything from cones to sticks found in the local park to set up your goal and corner of your pitch.

Is the English Premier League the best football league in the world?

Posted on May 24, 2018 at 4:05 pm

Many people believe that since the arrivals of Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp as coaches in the English top flight, the quality of football in the Premier League has improved considerably. For the first time in many years, we had an English team, Liverpool, in the final of the Champions League, so this is a sign that things have improved on a more global scale.

You also have to remember that even though the Italian league, French and Spanish have some major teams that play amazing football, there is not a great deal of depth. This is especially clear to see in Spain when it’s always the same 3 teams battling it out for the championship, Barcelona, Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid. In English football, the team at the top can find themselves unstuck against the team in bottom position, whilst you really never know who is going to win the league, even Leicester managed a few years back! This is why we feel the premier league is the best league in the world.

Liverpool or Chelsea

Posted on December 31, 2016 at 7:13 am

So at the halfway point of the premier league season, we can see that the title is likely to be between Liverpool or Chelsea. They’re the top two teams right now and they’re both playing with complete and utter confidence. So if we had to decide who will end the season in top spot who would we say? Well for us it has to be Chelsea. The main reason for this is that they’re not only scoring goals for fun and grinding out results when they need to, they’re also defending extremely well. This cannot be said about Liverpool. It’s no secret that Klopp has had a bit of a goalkeeping nightmare with Karius failing miserable in his few performances this year. Mignolet looks stronger but only just and we fear that there could be more defensive issues to come for Liverpool, which may just cost them the title.

Coutinho Picks up a knock

Posted on November 30, 2016 at 12:49 am

It’s always hard for a team when they lose their best layer to injury and it looks like this has just happened to Liverpool. Over the years Coutinho hasn’t had too many problems. He’s had a few knocks here and there but his time spent on the sidelines has been limited. That’s all about to change though as he now looks like he’s set to be out until New Year after sustaining an injury against Sunderland in the 33rd minute. He was replaced by Origi who came in and did a fantastic job, scoring the game-changing goal. It just goes to show that Liverpool do have a good squad of players and for the Reds fans sake, let’s hope the squad can contribute and fill the void left by Coutinho. Lallana looks set to be back soon, as does Firmino but it will be interesting to see how Liverpool play without their main man.

Fitness in the UK compared to Australia

Posted on October 24, 2016 at 12:34 pm

There are huge differences in lifestyle between British people and Australians and the weather certainly has something to do with it. Staying motivated in the UK can be quite hard to do when it’s dark and chucking it down with rain, but of course during our Christmas period Australia enjoys their hottest weather. Even during their winter the temperatures are so high you’d expect them to seek shade and relax but there’s more runners, cyclists and personal trainers during this period and that’s common in many Australian cities. There are even free fitness classes at local parks and beaches. That’s why Australians are fitter and it’s probably why they’re better at sports! Seriously speaking, the British government can do a lot more in terms of persuading more people to stay fit and healthy and they can certainly take a leaf from the Australian government.

Liverpool Ignore Calls for a New Left-back

Posted on August 26, 2016 at 10:18 pm

Alberto Moreno has had a torrid start to the Premier League season. Not only does he have the media and fans on his back after his last two performances, he’s now been dropped by Jurgen Klopp and replaced with James Milner. His big mistake came against Arsenal when he nearly cost Liverpool the match, but he’s not convinced in his cameo appearances since. Moreno is an out and out left-back so it can’t do his confidence any good to see that Jurgen Klopp would rather have Milner play in his position. Moreno’s biggest attribute is his speed but it’s only caused him to make rash decisions lately, and he’ll need to work hard on the training field to get his place back in the team. It’s suprising to see Klopp pick Milner though rather than buying a new left-back, so it will be interesting to see how the season unfolds.

Zlatan off the mark in 4 minutes

Posted on July 31, 2016 at 12:12 pm

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is a man full of confidence, he’s probably more arrogant than Manchester United’s manager Jose Mourinho, and so it’s fair to say many rival fans are hoping they’ll both be failures come the end of the campaign.

That doesn’t look likely at the moment though, with Ibrahimovic scoring with an overhead kick inside the first five minutes of the match. He celebrated the way Zlatan always does, mutedly. The 5-2 win over Galatasaray proves United have really kicked on with their pre-season training, and they certainly dominated the match, but there were a couple of defensive errors which led to goals. It’s difficult to say how Manchester United will shape up for the first game of the premier league season, but some big names will be dropped, but if they can stick together and play like a team of old, they’ll have a very good season.

Mane – not the big signing LFC fans were hoping for

Posted on June 2, 2016 at 9:26 am

Sadio Mane was phenomenal for Southampton last season, scoring many goals in the premier league, taking the Saints to new heights. So why is it most Liverpool fans you speak too aren’t that excited about what he’ll be bringing to the team? Well he is a Southampton player, and Liverpool haven’t had huge success when buying from Southampton in the past. Lallana, Lovren, Lambert, Mignolet and Clyne haven’t exactly set the football world alight, but perhaps Mane can. He’s one of the fastest players in the league and he’s likely to play on the wing or through the middle, cutting defences apart. We know there are bigger names out there, but Liverpool fans should appreciate the talent that Mane is and give him the backing he deserves.

Congratulations to Leicester

Posted on April 21, 2016 at 9:56 pm

If you read my last post you’ll probably be laughing at how wrong I was. Leicester has officially overcome the odds to become the Premier League Champions for 2015-16. Okay, so I won’t take all my words back. On paper, for me, they’re still a fairly average side. They’ve got goals in their game, I’ll give them that, and they can defend, and as we can see with three games to go, that’s all they needed. They of course had teamwork on their side too, and every one of their players deserves a massive mention. Vardy will probably get most of the plaudits because his goals have been extremely important, but the question now is how many players will they lose in the summer, and can they push on again next year?
