The KCOM Stadium might remain mostly empty during the next Cup game as the Tigers supporters have planned not to go and watch the encounter against Swansea.
The reason behind the plan is the dismissal of the head coach Mike Phelan who was told to leave last week.
The supporters are of the view that the owners first have to facilitate the coach in his work in every way possible and then only can they ask for an account of the performances from him.
In case of Phelan, he did not have a proper support staff, he did not have a big enough playing group, he did not have a truckload of money either to elongate the squad in just a week or two that was left in the window when he took over. So, what was the expectation from him in such condition?
It was already known that there would be loses in the first half of the season. In fact whichever game Hull has saved this season is a kind of a bonus because they have walked into each and every game being the underdogs. Continue reading Tigers supporters boycott the Cup Game
Arsenal star Santi Cazorla has attracted a lot of interest from La Liga sides, according to reports.
Since Cazorla’s switch from Malaga in 2012, he has been a major contributor to the Gunner squad, but the La Liga seems to be keen on luring him back home. Spanish news source Fichajes, says that the 31-year old has many suitors in Spain as rumours regarding him not extending his stay in England start to filter.
Cazorla’s current deal at the Emirates is set to end in a couple of months, and many clubs are already getting set to acquire his services should he decide against a renewal. The report claims Valencia, Sevilla and Atletico Madrid are happy to sign him if he returns to Spain. For now, it remains unclear if the Spain international will sign an extension in before June.
Last year, Cazorla could only force 15 games in an injury-plagued season. This term, he has been consistent and has been contributing to the squad’s performances so far. He has featured in all seven games this season, scoring two times. Also, Cazorla is a set to play when Arsenal face Swansea this weekend. Continue reading LA LIGA CLUBS WANT CAZORLA
Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech has said that all the pressure is right now on Liverpool’s shoulders after they kept their position at the top of the table following their 3-2 win over Manchester City. Liverpool came into the match after having performed well against the top teams this season. However, they had earlier lost against city at the Etihad stadium. Another loss would have been very difficult to take for Liverpool and Steven Gerrard, who have been trying to win the league title for several years now. However, this win puts them in a position where they can almost smell the title.
Cech, who has won three league titles with Chelsea in the past, says that nothing has been decided yet and that the blues could still win the league. However, he says that there is almost no pressure on Chelsea because they are second in the table and they need to depend upon the results from teams like city and Liverpool in order to win the title. Chelsea will be the visitors to Anfield in the next home match for Liverpool. The blues need to get a win in order to keep their hopes alive.
City, who are third in the table also have a chance, since they have two matches in hand.
“No-one expected anything from Liverpool and they are in contention and that is why they play without pressure so far, but let’s see how they are going to cope when it comes to the last hurdle. They will have to jump over it and they have been doing remarkably well. We have things in our hands. We need to wait for one slip-up from Manchester City, but if we win our games we have a chance,” said the goalkeeper, who is widely expected to be replaced by Thibaut Courtois in the summer.
