The least used forwards by top teams this 2018 football season

Fernando Llorente (Tottenham Hotspur): Llorente was a highly valued forward in the La Liga when he played with Athletic Bilbao. He joined Spurs this season from Swansea after being impressive with the Swans. Unfortunately for him, Harry Kane has been once again unstoppable and even when Kane has been injured, Son is normally preferred to take his place. He surely deserves to get more game time but it is difficult to achieve that at Spurs right now. Sandro Wagner (Bayern Munich): Wagner joined Bayern Munich in January this season from…

Footballers with most assists in European football this season

Footballers with most assists in European football this season 5) Leroy Sane (Manchester City) 11 assists in 25 games The German has stood up this season for the Citizens after taking his time last season to settle in the English league. This season has been another story. Sane has become City’s first choice left winger and has formed a fantastic trio with Sterling and Aguero. Given his tender age, Sane’s figures have been appalling. With 11 assists and 12 goals, Sane is one of the first on Pep Guardiola’s starting…

Footballers who are always the victim of social media trolls

Cristiano Ronaldo (Real Madrid): The great Portuguese attacker is one of the best players currently in the world. Given the responsibilities he carries, it is very likely that critics and banter come his way too. Ronaldo struggled in the first half of the season especially in front of the goal when he went through a dry spell. But that was a phase which he has put behind and since then has been involved in goals more than often. In the Champions League, he has scored 12 goals in 8 games…

Stadiums that are shared by rival football teams

Stadio Olimpico (Lazio and AS Roma): Italy has always seen multiple teams share stadiums and it is the same case between Lazio and Roma. The stadium has not been as successful for both the teams as one would wish given that both the teams have won only five Serie A titles between them since 1953. The stadium holds a capacity of 70,000 but the infrastructure of the stadium hasn’t been of the best quality. It only gets worse as the stadium is now also used for the Rugby team. San…

Footballers who are known for their outspoken attitude

Zlatan Ibrahimovic: There is no surprise seeing Zlatan on this list as the Swedish superstar has time and again been very blunt about his opinions. May it be “Zlatan doesn’t do auditions”, “The World Cup is nothing without me” or terming Pep as a “spineless coward” or “not a man”, Zlatan has never shied away from expressing what he has felt. Dani Alves: The Brazilian is one of the finest full backs in the world right now but even he has been very vocal about his opinions. He recently stated…

January transfer signings who could become long term members of their clubs

5) Virgil Van Djik-Liverpool Liverpool fans’ prayers were finally heard this January, when the club forked out a massive 75 million Euros for Van Djik’s signature. In a season where the defence and attack have looked completely out of sync for Liverpool, Van Djik’s arrival came as a blessing. And rightly so, the Reds already look a better team with the Dutchman marshalling their backline. Moreover, he adds the much needed aerial strength to the side as well. Still 26, and already a plethora of experience on his back, Van…

4) Kyle Walker One of the best right backs in the world at the moment, Kyle Walker will be a pivotal member of Gareth Southgate´s setup. The defender developed into one of the most exciting defenders whilst at Spurs. He would likely end his trophy drought as Manchester City are champions elect with only 10 more games to play. He has continued his development at City, running up and down the pitch. Averaging 75 passes per game and having won 38 tackles this season, Walker is already a force in…

5) Jack Wilshere The Arsenal midfielder has always been touted as the player of the highest potential. After massively struggling with injuries in recent seasons, this campaign has been a one-off for the midfielder. He has looked fitter than ever and has shown signs of finally becoming the player everyone expected him to become. Moreover, Wilshere brings the much needed leadership and authority to the midfield, something which even the Three Lions lack. Their lacklustre performances in the last few games were a huge talking point. Neither of Eric Dier…

Footballers who faced a ban for racism

Edwin Cardona: It was in November 2017, when Colombia played against South Korea, players from both teams were involved in a scuffle. While James Rodriguez was caught up with Korean players Ki and Jin Su Kim, Cordona was seen making an offensive ‘’squinting eyes’ remark which surely angered the fans. FIFA too was displeased with this act. He has been banned from five international games, luckily for him it will help him to participate in the World Cup. Aleksander Tonev: Tonev was playing for Celtic on loan from Aston Villa…

David Batty: The Englishman played for a number of clubs including Leeds United, Blackburn and Newcastle United in his 18 year long football career. He also played for the English national team, appearing for the three Lions in the Euros in 1992 and the FIFA World Cup in 1998. His time in the national team was highlight most with his penalty miss against Argentina in the World Cup. In 2007, he was found stating that he never went to see England play after he retired from the game as it…
