The Premier League Trophy

With Euro 2012 cluttering up the brain matter reserved for the not-so-fond-memories of most of us, and the Olympics just around the corner, things are slowly heating up in the build-up to the 2012/13 English Premier League.

Champions and this season's Premier League betting favourites Manchester City have had the purse-strings drawn tightly thus far, with Roberto Mancini maintaining he will not disrupt the team in any major way during this transfer window, but expect late action in the form of moves for RVP and at least two other big-name signings.

Coloccini Urged Newcastle Not to Think About European Ambition as Just Yet

English Premier league at related • 0 views

Newcastle United's form this season have been pretty consistent, resulting in their excellent position in the league, sitting at sixth place with an open chance in chasing for the fourth place spot or at least finishing in Europa League zone.

This situation is obviously being acknowledged by Newcastle players, including their Argentinian center back, Fabrio Coloccini, who is excited with the situation but urged everyone to simply take one things at a time and shouldn't be thinking too far about what European competition the team will play next season.

Bellamy believes that after finally winning something again, it's eventually time for the Reds to get themselves back into the height of European club competition and that's obviously the UEFA Champions League.

Demba Cisse Nets On His Newcastle Debut But Couldn’t Do The Same For Senegal

English Premier league at related • 0 views

So Newcastle's new signing Papiss Demba Cisse and fellow Senegalese team mate Demba Ba netted goals for the Magpies in their 2-1 home win over Aston Villa yesterday. However, whats funny is that the same two players could not do the same for Senegal in the Africa Cup of Nations.

And this is interesting because African players have a tendency to perform well for their clubs, but when it comes to their national sides, it is a different story.

It seemed like a monumental shock was on the cards. Against the run of play in the 55th Georgios Samaras had equalized for Greece and the Germans, despite dominating possession found themselves level with 25 minutes to go. Would the Germans cave under the pressure of expectations?

Fernando Santos' side was written off before a ball was kicked and they did nothing to promote any real optimism with their opening draw against Poland and subsequent loss to the Czech Republic.

Obviously I don't think anybody is surprised by that but Diaby now seems to be caught in an infinite loop of injury.

I must say I always enjoy it when a German club comes to town. They invariably bring loads of fans, make lots of noise and have a cracking time. Marseille and Arsenal might still be in the driving seats in this group, but Dortmund's win on Matchday 4* means they are very much back in it, and if that fact hasn't been drummed into the team throughout this week in training then I'm a goalscoring Dutchman.
