Tottenham’s opening day clash with Everton has been postponed due to the London riots. There have been riots all across UK, but it was in Tottenham where it started and where the biggest damage was made. The Premier League confirmed today it wasn’t safe enough for the match to take place this weekend but it does seem like this is the only game to be called off. Tottenham have realised that statement on their website, and confirm that the match has been postponed due to safety reasons, and due to local roads being closed, it would also be hard to…

Born: 11/3/1978 Nationality: Ivorian Club: Chelsea Didier Drogba is one of the greatest strikers playing football today. There are a collective few of strikers which can have great strength, heading ability and technical ability that Drogba has. Defending against Drogba is never easy, as he has immense power and such a keen eye for goal. Drogba has won the Premier League a few times with Chelsea, as well as FA Cups, but the title he is missing is the Champions League, where Chelsea got so close in 2008. Drogba, although in his 30’s now, is still a lot to handle,…

Born: 24/10/85 Nationality: English Club: Manchester United Wayne Rooney has been building his reputation of a world class football since he was 16. Now at 25, he has achieved a lot at Manchester United, including several Premier League titles and of course, the Champions League medal. Rooney has been one of the players at United who had great performances but played with other legends of the club, including Van Nistelrooy, Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes and Ronaldo, but it now seems that Wayne Rooney is the most decorated player for Manchester United. He has a great football mind, as his passing…

Born: 11/5/1984 Nationality: Spanish Club: FC Barcelona Andres Iniesta has climbed the ranks at Barcelona, and now is a first team regular and regarded as one of the best players in the world. Iniesta plays in the centre of midfielder but because of his adaptable qualities can play on the wing too, on either side. As a fan of watching pure slick football, I admire Iniesta so much, and watching him play is as fascnicating as watching the likes of Messi and Ronaldo play. Iniesta’s vision, close ball control, dribbling ability and passing is for all to see and no…

Born: 5/2/1985 Nationality: Portuguese Club: Real Madrid There is no doubt that when Ronaldo hangs up his boots, he will be regarded as one of the best players of all time, and there is still plenty of time left in this lads career. At the age of 26, he has many years left in him and his fitness and dedication to the sport cannot be faulted, so there is more time for Ronaldo to achieve even more in this sport. At Manchester United, Ronaldo had won everything possible in England. Three Premier League titles, with a couple of Carling Cup…

Born: 24/6/1987 Nationality: Argentinean Club: FC Barcelona Messi is undoubtedly the best player in world football now, and arguably the greatest of all time. Not long turned 24, yet has achieved so much in football in terms of medals and maintaining a special ability. Messi has unbelievable ball control, dribbling, balance, finishing, passing which makes him the top player. Messi takes on players for fun time and time again, and plays majestically in a great Barcelona side. As I have mentioned, Messi is only 24 years old, so has plenty of time to achieve so much more. He is a…

Born: 20/3/84 Nationality: Spanish Club: Chelsea Fernando Torres career is a bit of a roller coaster, but nonetheless he is a player that is regarded as one of the most dangerous strikers in the world. Chelsea bought their man from Liverpool in January for £50million, a record for the Premier League, and has only scored one competitive goal for Chelsea, and looking a shadow of the player he was before at Liverpool. He started his career at Atletico, but joined Liverpool at the age of 23 and he was a remarkable success. Torres has brilliant pace, and his finishing was…

Born: 17/11/86 Nationality: Portuguese Club: Manchester United Nani is a player who is loved and loathed by many footballing supporters. His crossing, dribbling and shooting can easily be admired as he is so influential to Manchester United, but at the same time labelled as a diver, as well as other things because of the way he negatively acts on the football pitch. In the Premier League, he is often down on the floor grabbing onto a part of his body, as if he has a serious injury, only to come back on the pitch fine as ever just moments later….

Paul Scholes had 17 years at Manchester United, and was renown as one of the best midfielders in his generation, from the likes of Zinidine Zidane and Xavi, as well as all the fans of the Premier League throughout his career. He scored some fantastic goals in the Man Utd shirt, and some are regarded the best goals ever scored in Premier League history. Paul Scholes also played for England from 1998 to 2004, in two World Cups and two European Championships. Since Paul Scholes retired from international football, the team has decreased in quality and always wanted Scholes to…
