One is considered to be one of the best young managers in world football, having managed FC Porto, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur despite being only thirty-six years of age. The other has won the Premier League with Blackburn Rovers as a player and has been a coach at Tottenham since 2008. It is strange how, the first manager referred to, is unemployed, having been sacked by Spurs and replaced by his former assistant Tim Sherwood.

It's an early start today as we face Everton in the FA Cup at 12.45.
It's hard not to think that this one game is close to being make or break for our season. We're still in with a shout in the Premier League, as things stand right now, and we're not out of Europe (yet), but this is certainly a match that will set the mood.
Earlier today I was talking to a close friend of mine after a long time. He was wondering why I had limited the number of articles and was covering two games in one post. My answer was in the form of a question, "What can I write about this game against Stoke, for example, that I haven't already said on multiple occasions over the last 3-4 years?
There's plenty of soccer on TV this weekend with Major League Soccer returning and some big games abroad.
The campaign for the FA Cup continues with Arsenal set to host Everton for the quarterfinal match Saturday. Everton has never won at Arsenal's Emirates Stadium, having drawn in their last two visits, but they will be traveling to face an Arsenal side still feeling the sting of their league defeat against Stoke City last weekend.
Samir Nasri may not be the most loved former Arsenal player around, but he still has some close ties to the club, especially with his compatriot and former boss Arsene Wenger. He may have left Arsenal because of the lack of silverware, although a huge increase in wages might have helped as well, but he [.

English football historian, author and researcher Gary James has published a new paper that examines the history of the sport in Manchester and reveals, for the first time, that there was another football club operating in the area during the 1860s, making that team the oldest in the region, not Manchester City (founded in 1880 asSt.
The four players Manchester United MUST sell this summer - originally posted on Soccerlens.com
It's an old maxim in football that you build a team from the back. If the saying is true, it's one that David Moyes should take to heart when looking to rebuild his Manchester United squad. The backline of Rafael, Vidic, Ferdinand and Evra has had its days, and all must now be moved on if the new manager is to make his mark on the club.
Manchester United has been linked with a number of players that might arrive to Old Trafford and help Moyes for the upcoming seasons but according to the former coach of the Premier League club, Sir. Alex Ferguson all that he needs is time to settle in.
Sir. Alex Ferguson recommended the club on placing David Moyes as the new coach of the squad but things aren't going on he would have desired and following the number of negative results, Moyes was recently even given an ultimatum of 12 matches for him to improve or else the club will be in search of a new club.
Rejoice! Rejoice! After the a couple of weeks when UEFA Champions League action provided some superb midweek relief, we were "treated" to international friendlies this time round.
This weekend we've got a host of magnificent games to look forward to in a plethora of different competitions. Fans of English football can sift between the FA Cup, the Premier League and the Championship this weekend as the domestic season begins to come to the boil.

Queens Park Rangers, a blight on English football after the financial mess the club has gotten itself into plus the way they've mismanaged the club, are in an even worse state now after the club revealed it is £177million in debt. As a result, the club may be forced to axe 26 players in order to cut the wage bill, which is currently more than the wage bill at Borussia Dortmund, the finalists of the 2013 UEFA Champions League Final.
Well, at least we now have a fuller picture of exactly why the club is understood to be so steadfastly against the notion of Financial Fair Play. It had been expected that the release of Queens Park Rangers' annual accounts for their 2012/13 financial year would not make for particularly appetising reading for the club's supporters, but to suggest that at least they weren't even worse than had been expected surely carries a hint of disingenuity about it.
These days, it is common to hear soccer fans saying something like "of course, soccer is just like any other business now." It is a phrase intended to establish the speaker as a hard-nosed realist, puncturing idealistic delusions about the beautiful game with a knowing appreciation of the forces of profit and commerce that are now said to underpin the sport.
There are just ten games to go in the Premier League (that's right, just ten games!) and as the "games remaining" figure ticks into single figures for a host of teams this weekend, it really is the time of the season to make an impression. And that applies for plenty of sides.
This season is rather unique in that respect, because aside from Newcastle United and Southampton both of who are somewhat marooned in mid-table every team has something to fight for as the end of the campaign draws close.

The mystery of what England's away shirt will look like for World Cup 2014 can now be revealed after a photograph has been leaked on the Internet.
Not surprisingly, England will be wearing red as their away shirt during 2014. Designed by Nike, the straightforward design features a bright red shirt, rounded collar and the infamous Three Lions crest on the chest.
Nowadays it seems that any tackle with a slight lashing of malice is scrutinized and condemned. With the increase of baby-faced and wrapped-in-cotton-wool footballers who refuse to be fouled as to protect their luscious and gelled infrastructure they call their hair, the ancient art form of the tackle is being clamped down to the point when you can barely touch your opponent anymore.
