Flores fails to make Watford fun


Sherwood may make some late deals

Aston Villa

Watford lack goal threat and boss Flores needs to reassess options

Watford boss Quique Sanchez Flores says his side were never going to keep Manchester City at bay for 90 minutes.

No one expected Watford to beat Manchester City on Saturday and a 2-0 defeat away to the team that look clear favourites for the title was not hard to stomach.

However, there is growing unease about the way the club are approaching games and it's debatable whether they ever really tried to win the game at Etihad.

Boss Quique Flores talked up his team's chances in the build-up but sent them out to get behind the ball and limit the space for City's attacking play that overwhelmed Chelsea a fortnight...

Villa's draw with Sunderland may tempt Sherwood into more transfers

Tim Sherwood admits Aston Villa have lost a lot of their goal threat following Christian Benteke's departure.

How did Aston Villa draw 2-2 at home to Sunderland on Saturday? It was mystifying how Tim Sherwood's team failed to take all three points from a visiting side that ended the day at the bottom of the Premier League table.

Sunderland have already been tagged the whipping boys of the Premier League, so it was frustrating to see the hosts fail to claim three points. The reaction from the Villa support is understandable. The balance of play was overwhelmingly in their favour; dominance both in terms...

Pulis haunts Stoke but Potters have pride despite Afellay and Adam reds

Ibrahim Afellay was sent off and Charlie Adam followed as nine-man Stoke lost to former boss Tony Pulis' West Brom.

Stoke's 1-0 home defeat to West Brom on Saturday was meant to be a match to celebrate; to give former manager Tony Pulis a standing ovation and to welcome Xherdan Shaqiri for his home debut.

What transpired was an afternoon littered with petulance and over-officious refereeing that stopped a contest from ever taking place.

Fans remain blindly loyal to their own but for many, the actions of sent off duo Ibrahim Afellay and Charlie Adam should be roundly condemned. Former Barcelona star Afellay, 29,...

Howe needs Bournemouth buys amid injury concerns over Mings and Gradel

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe was frustrated as injuries piled up during his side's draw with Leicester.

Bournemouth fans were finally able to buy this season's new shirts before Saturday's 1-1 draw at Leicester.

Such was the size of the shopping spree that fans were being rather brusquely turned away from the club shop 15 minutes before kick-off, although appetite for Artur Boruc's day-glo goalkeeping ensemble may not prove large.

The big buys in the club's own shopping spree this summer were Tyrone Mings (Ipswich, £8 million) and Max Gradel (St Etienne, £6 million) and when Bournemouth's...

Mourinho must sort Chelsea slump before fans start to question him

ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop says Chelsea have no excuses following their home defeat to Crystal Palace.

Jose Mourinho isn't noted for shouldering responsibility when results go against him, but as Chelsea's poor start to the season lurched from bad to worse in Saturday's 2-1 home defeat to Crystal Palace, he admitted he made an error of judgement.

"I blame myself for not changing them," said Mourinho about "two or three players" whose performances he described as not good enough.

"Not good," is a polite assessment.

Supporters who paid serious money to see the latest instalment of football's greatest...

Brisbane Roar striker helps himself to eight goals

Jamie Maclaren made an early impression with the Brisbane Roar with his eight-goal haul.

As they continue to limber up for the new A-League campaign, the Brisbane Roar found themselves pitted against Gold Coast All-Stars in a preseason friendly fixture on Sunday.

To call it a walkover would be something of an understatement.

Indeed, the Roar emerged comprehensive victors on the day with striker Jamie Maclaren helping himself to an impressive eight-goal haul in a 10-0 win for his side.

Maclaren joined the Roar only a couple of months ago from Perth Glory but made a strong case to slip...
