Manchester United won their fifth league cup this afternoon thanks to a Zlatan Ibrahimovic brace. The United striker scored an early free kick and a late winner to give the Red Devils a victory over a talented Southampton side that gave them all they could handle. The Saints played well throughout, but in the end, […]

It’s hard to imagine a more successful start to the unlikely union of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Jose Mourinho at Manchester United. Ibrahimovic, the mercurial Swedish striker, scored a pair of first-half goals to power Mourinho’s Red Devils to their third win in as many tries on the young season — a 2-0 victory over Southampton […]

The recent Premier League match between Liverpool and Southampton was one of the most spectacular collapses that we have seen for some time. It is baffling how a team can go from being clearly on top in the first half, to the extent where they could have and should have been up by more, yet […]
during the Barclays Premier League match between Manchester United and Southampton at Old Trafford on January 23, 2016 in Manchester, England.
As you may remember, the summer of 2014 was not kind to Southampton. Following a very impressive 2013/14 season for the newly promoted club, they were promptly raided for many of their top young players, and their manager by the bigger Premier League clubs. Every pundit around thought they had lost too much and the […]

Charlie Austin, the man who was acquired by Southampton for £4 million, saw his first minutes for his new club. He subbed in for Sadio Mane and came into the game in the 79th minute. It wasn’t enough that he saw his first action as a member of Southampton, but he also managed to score […]

With the £4m transfer of Charlie Austin from QPR to Southampton blazing to completion over the weekend, we need to look at who got the best deal. It would be easy to say Southampton. They got a quality goalscorer who is Premier League proven in Austin for only £4m. With their top scorer Graziano Pelle […]

Southampton has really started the day right. Before most fans woke up for the early game today, it was made known that Southampton got a great bargain in getting Charlie Austin from QPR for only £4 million. And now, in their game against West Bromich Albion, James Ward-Prowse scored a beauty of a free kick […]
HIGHBURY, LONDON – MAY 15: Former Daily Mirror Editor, Piers Morgan with his family during the FA Barclaycard Premiership match between Arsenal and Leicester City at Highbury on May 15, 2004 in London. Morgan, was forced to resign from the paper on May 14, after it was proven that a set of photos he had published, purporting to show British troops abusing Iraqi prisoners were in fact fake.

Piers Morgan is a very polarizing figure. He’s a very opinionated person and really doesn’t care what anyone thinks of him. To be honest, I can kind of respect him for that. But a lot of times, Piers Morgan can be irritating, especially irritating when he’s talking about his beloved Arsenal Football Club. It’s not […]

Harry Kane might not be having the same amazing season as last, but this goal is pure quality. He dribbles past almost the entire Southampton defense, before slotting the ball into the net, cool as you like.

This year has flown by. It’s hard to believe that we’re at the quarters already for the Capitol One Cup. Time flies when you’ve got good soccer to watch. We’ve got some great matchups at this stage of the Capitol One Cup. Plenty of opportunities for potential upsets, chances to regain form, and maybe even […]
during the Barclays Premier League match between Manchester City and Southampton at the Etihad Stadium on November 28, 2015 in Manchester, England.
Manchester City got thrashed last weekend by a game Liverpool. Let’s just say they came out rather ticked off and poor Southampton were the victims of pent up frustration. After a first half barrage by the home Citizens, the scoreline was 2-0. Southampton knocked in an early goal in the second half to make it […]

José Mourinho went on a rant to end all rants after his team’s disappointing 3-1 loss to Southampton, after Chelsea took the lead from a sensational Willian free kick. On this rant, Mourinho touched all bases the “missed” penalty call on the play where Radamel Falcao was taken down by the Southampton keeper, calling out […]

Everton surprisingly came into the South of England to completely dismantle Southampton 3-0. While Southampton had the possession, they didn’t really do anything with that possessing and rarely posed a threat to Tim Howard and the Everton goal. On the other hand, Everton were scoring goals left and right and their day was capped off […]

Last month, it was Liverpool making the big signings. It seems that Manchester United want their turn in the spotlight. They’ve made some huge signings already this summer, with
