New chapter added to Van Gaal's fluid football vs. Mourinho's pragmatism

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says his team are prepared to play Manchester United this weekend.

Louis van Gaal had only been Barcelona manager for a few months and, although he already knew the young Jose Mourinho offered much more than just being a translator, he hadn't realised just how much. That would come, but thanks to an unlikely source.

It was September 1997 and the Catalans were preparing for a Champions League away match with Newcastle United. Before the game, Van Gaal's then assistant, Gerard van der Lem, had been discussing the English side's attack, and was rather dismissive....

Relationship between managers won't matter in Man United vs. Chelsea

Huge game this weekend in the Barclays Premier League, as the past greats of English football, Manchester United, take on the champions-elect, Chelsea. Ian Fiveankles explains EXACTLY what happens in this match, so you don't even have to watch it.

A meeting with Manchester United is always a grand occasion yet Chelsea's visit to Old Trafford on Sunday has an extra degree of grandeur due to the men at the helm of their respective clubs.

Jose Mourinho may well be master of all he surveys in the football world though he owes much of what he has become to the tutelage of Louis van Gaal. The pair spent three years as close colleagues at Barcelona in Mourinho's formative years and the Portuguese has only always spoken in glowing terms of his Dutch...

Result needed for Pardew's Newcastle against weary Spurs

Newcastle manager Alan Pardew noted after the 1-0 win over Leicester City how vital the victory was.

After Newcastle's first win of the season last week, beleaguered manager Alan Pardew admitted that there was a long way to go for his struggling football team.

"This isn't going to be the be all and end all for us, beating Leicester. We need to beat some top teams," he said in the postmatch news conference. They have a chance to do just that when they head to White Hart Lane to face off against Mauricio Pochettino's Tottenham on Sunday.

The fixture will be Tottenham's fifth home game of the...

Does a rising sense of fan entitlement devalue football loyalties?

Supporters can get quite upset when they spend plenty of money on a ticket only to watch their team sustain a lopsided loss.
Supporters can get quite upset when they spend plenty of money on a ticket only to watch their team sustain a lopsided loss.

It could happen this weekend, though the fixtures do not really suggest it. It could be at Tottenham, theoretically, or at Southampton again. If not, then it will only be a matter of days: Arsenal next week, perhaps, or Stamford Bridge or Selhurst Park. It will happen, though, and soon, and then one group of fans will have a choice to make.

The choice is this. Your team is losing. Badly. They are four goals down, maybe five, and there is still half an hour to play. It is an age-old question,...

Burnley strikers must start stepping up with goals

Burnley manager Sean Dyche explains his side need to find the winning element if they are to remain in the Premier League, following their 1-3 defeat to West Ham.

Burnley's winless start to the season is mostly down to a misfiring strike force that remains without a goal after eight league and cup matches.

Last season's star, Danny Ings, has had a disappointingly slow start to the new campaign and summer arrivals Lukas Jutkiewicz and Marvin Sordell have also failed to make an impact in front of goal. The final member of Burnley's less-than-fabulous four up front, Ashley Barnes, has looked out of his depth in the Premier League.

Patience is quickly wearing...

After encouraging start, Leicester's Premier League honeymoon is over

Swansea manager Garry Monk speaks of the importance of getting the full three points in their upcoming fixture against Leicester.

Leicester's Premier League honeymoon is well and truly over. A loss at Swansea could leave the Foxes in the relegation zone by the close of the weekend. It still feels like an encouraging start to the season, but the table doesn't lie: City are moving in the wrong direction.

There's still little wrong with Leicester's home form, even though too many goals are being leaked at the King Power Stadium. However, on the road the Foxes are getting dragged into too many dogfights. Last weekend's 1-0 loss...
