The Premier League is fast becoming a bit of a farce, isn't it? I mean here we are just having learned about 'Project Restart' a couple of weeks ago, with the Premier League given the green light to apparently start integrating players into small groups so they can train as a collective, and then we [...]

Of ever you needed a clear-cut example of how Tony Pauli’s is ‘anti-football’, it can be evidenced by Serge Gnabry and his goals against Chelski last night, quickly followed by a collective groan by Arsenal fans everywhere.
