Five Games In.

Hi all and welcome to this week’s Blog.

As always, support on the last article was great and the numbers continue to grow, both on here and interactions on my Twitter account (@eastterrace00) are also growing, so thanks for that.

The weekend just gone has seen Premier League teams play their fifth games of the season. A landmark in which teams can start to be judged as to what sort of season they’ll have, I thought it would be a good idea to look at each team (in league position order) and write a few words down on how they’re doing.

Back with a bang.


The Manchester Derby

It was back to league football across Europe this weekend with some very interesting fixtures taking place; the Manchester derby being the stand-out one of all.

Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola are quite rightly seen as 2 of Europe’s “super coaches”. Their past achievements with Barcelona, Chelsea, Bayern, Inter Milan, Porto and Real Madrid respectively put both of them up there with the very best the game has ever seen.  Their relationship (can it be called that?!) at Barcelona and Real Madrid was something that always caused headlines; with Guardiola once calling Jose “the f*****g man, the f*****g chief”.

After watching the first month of the new season pass, a couple of things have caught my attention which I wanted to write about. Continue reading “The first month of the new season.”

Ha’way the lads!


The Gameweek just gone. 

With Leicester proving everybody wrong in actually winning the Premier League last weekend, the focus quickly switched to the bottom end of the league, with Norwich, Sunderland and Newcastle all knowing that they have to pick up maximum points before now and the end of the season if they are to avoid the drop. Continue reading “Ha’way the lads!”

It’s happened….

Hi everyone and welcome to the Second entry of my new blog The East Terrace.

Firstly, I hope you enjoyed the first blog. I am going to try and do a preview to each weekend and then comment on what happened in those games a couple of days after they’ve happened.

The gameweek just gone.

There’s only one place to start really, isn’t there?

As everyone who has an interest in Football (or sport in general) knows, Leicester City, at FIVE THOUSAND TO ONE, won the Premier League title for the first time in their History. They secured the title without even kicking a ball, after Spurs failed to see out a 2-0 advantage away at their bogey ground for the last 26 years, Chelsea. Continue reading “It’s happened….”
