Tag: Jose Mourinho

Welcome, The English Premier League!

  As the 2019 elections in Nigeria draw ominously closer,  a very familiar pattern in the political landscape is visible.

Manchester United v Chelsea Preview: Conte To Best Mourinho Again?

Chelsea vs Manchester United: A Review

30 seconds. That’s how long it took Chelsea to open the scoring in an enthralling match at the bridge, Pedro capitalizing on calamitous defending from the united defenders to open the floodgates. Much was made of Jose Mourinho’s homecoming to the club he had...

Blood Red – The North West Derby

When John Houlding came out of the Sandon Hotel on a spring morning in 1892, having decided with his friend, John Orrell, that they’ll form a new football club to occupy Anfield (which had been left by Everton), little did he know that he'd...
