where do we go from here?

The legendary Liverpool manager Bill Shankly once famously declared ‘football is not a matter of life and death…it’s much more important than that.’ The Scotsman was obviously being facetious. Having grown up in a small Ayrshire mining town, stealing bread and vegetables from nearby farms due to the overwhelming hunger, Shankly was hardly unaware of the very real human suffering that puts the insignificance of 22 people kicking a ball around into perspective. It’s a reality that has now hit hard across the globe. With tens of thousands of people losing their lives, the decision to shut down major leagues across the planet seems not only correct, but of very little significance. One day football will return - it’s already back under way in several nations – and it’s worth considering…

The last decade saw a dramatic acceleration in the continually evolving world of football. It brought major reforms at the top of governing bodies, the introduction of goal-line technology and video assistant referees, and the ever increasing prevalence of social media. But above all, none of these changes have been more pronounced than the rapid and plainly staggering rise in transfer fees. Even at a time when UEFA’s Financial Fair Play regulations had come into effect, the market has grown at a relentless pace. Still, nobody could have expected Paris Saint-Germain to smash the world transfer record to an almost unthinkable degree when they paid L200m to sign Neymar from Barcelona in the summer of 2017, underlining their intent to become Europe’s leading force. As for Neymar himself, it brought…

what's next?

Neymar’s future is a topic of intense speculation. Stephen Donovan asks what could be next for the world’s most expensive player Over the course of the last year, Neymar has made it abundantly clear through both his words and his actions that he is unhappy at Paris Saint-Germain and is desperate to leave, perhaps for a return to Barcelona, where he spent four magnificently successful years before his record-breaking move in 2017. However, with a contract that still has over two years left to run, securing a move away might be easier said then done. Barcelona are likely to renew their attempts to bring Neymar back to Camp Nou in the months to come, but once again it would take a gigantic sum of money to even tempt PSG to sell. Meanwhile,…

“WE FEEL HARD DONE BY, OBVIOUSLY, BECAUSE WE, AS A CLUB, HAD BIG ASPIRATIONS AND WE WANTED TO BE IN THE CHAMPIONS LEAGUE.” FINAL STANDINGS Uefa Champions League: 1st - 3rd Europa League: 4th Relegation: 19th, 20th Paris Saint-Germain were declared champions after the government pushed the French soccer leagues into cancelling their seasons, but deciding who would win the league title was the least of the worries of French soccer clubs. The Prime Minister of France, Edouard Philippe, announced that 2019/20 sporting seasons would not be able to continue until September, prompting the LFP (French football league) to end the current campaign. The leagues were looking to restart in June, targeting a July finish, but this was rendered impossible following Philippe’s announcement, and even games behind closed doors were not considered, as is the case in…

the origins

THE CHAMPIONS LEAGUE The Champions League as we now know it came into being in the 1992-1993 season, replacing the old European Cup, which was a two-legged straight knockout competition that had run from 1955. However, the last edition of European Cup did feature a group stage which saw the two group winners, Sampdoria and Barcelona, face off in the decider. The Catalans won 1-0 in extra-time thanks to a Ronald Koeman free-kick. Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi led the way in the formation of the Champions League. The businessman and future Italian Prime Minister was one of many who had hoped to launch a European Super League, which would expand the revenue streams for his two main investments – the TV channel Canale 5 and his beloved Rossoneri. When Serie A champions Napoli…

DESPITE LOSING AT ANFIELD, BLACKBURN ROVERS WERE CROWNED CHAMPIONS IN 1995 The prospect of two or more teams competing to the final stages of the campaign makes for enthralling viewing for football fans, as the anticipation and pressure builds in what is now commonly referred to as squeaky-bum-time. We’ve decided to look back at some of the greatest conclusions to a Premier League season, the occasions the destination of the league title has been undecided heading into the final day of the campaign. Here are the eight times the Premier League title went down to the wire: 1994/95 The early seasons of the Premier League era saw Blackburn Rovers emerge as a real force in English football, the Lancashire side backed by the millions of Jack Walker and propelled by the goals of British…
