Ranking the best England managers – Who tops the bill?

It’s fair to say that England have had some interesting managers throughout the ages, from formidable dictators to genial coaches who always seemed more than a little out of their depth (Steve McLaren, anyone?) Assessing the best England managers is a deceptively easy pastime, however, particularly given the paucity of success that the Three Lions have enjoyed (or not) during the last 50 years or more. In this article, we’ve reviewed the best three managers in the history of the…

England must overcome avoid travel woes at World Cup in Russia

England’s hopes of success at this summer’s World Cup could be derailed by a huge amount of travelling during the opening stage of the tournament.

The England players who are in danger of missing out on Russia 2018

It’s getting to that stage of the season now where the summer is on everybody’s mind, not least Gareth Southgate.

It could be argued a couple more should be pushing harder to find form too. With just a few months of the season left, a number of stars are in danger of missing out. We take a…

Will the heroes of England under 20 World Cup success get Premier League game time this season?

There was celebration and elation in Suwon on the 11th of June as Paul Simpson led England 20s to a historic World Cup triumph. Dominic Calvert Lewin's strike was enough to secure the title in a competitively fought game and each and every one of the players deserves enormous credit for their part in the success. But will we see this exciting generation feature in the Premier League next season?  (more…)
