The Algerian winger of Leicester City, Riyad Mahrez has kicked off the new season of the Premier League in a superb form as he has scored 4 goals in 3 matches for his club and he has attracted the interest of Barcelona as the Spanish outfit want to sign him but it doesn’t seem like it’s going to happen as Claudio Ranieri stated that Riyad Mahrez is not for sale.

Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur have also been linked with the Algerian and this is proof of just how much attention Riyad Mahrez has been attracting thanks to his impressive performers in these early stages of the season.

Leicester City’s Claudio Ranieri shut down all the rumors involving Riyad Mahrez with a possible move to another club as the Italian manager told the media: “We don’t sell him so there is no price.

Alex McLeish says that he expects Tim Sherwood to be a success at Aston Villa


Former Aston Villa manager Alex McLeish says that he expects Tim Sherwood to be a success at Aston Villa after having witnessed the club avoid relegation comfortably and also reach the FA Cup final last season.

Sherwood was appointed as the replacement for Paul Lambert midway through the last season. Immediately upon his arrival, results showed a distinct improvement while Villa started playing better football. However, the former Tottenham manager has a big job on his hands to keep star striker Christian Benteke at the club next season. The 15 goals scored by the forward was important in keeping the club in the Premier League.

McLeish had a stint at Villa a few years ago before being replaced by Lambert. It was during the regime of the former Birmingham manager that the club slipped quite regularly into the drop zone. It appears that they have not recovered from it since then. Sherwood, though, cannot be blamed much since he was appointed just a few months after the close of the relegation zone. Even though Villa reached the final of the FA Cup, they were unable to end their trophy drought in this competition after being beaten 4-0 by Arsenal. There have been numerous transfer rumours surrounding Benteke during the off-season. Continue reading ‘Alex McLeish says that he expects Tim Sherwood to be a success at Aston Villargb’

Tim Sherwood generated Spark in Aston Villa Camp


Its amazing how Tim Sherwood has come in and generated spark in the Aston Villa camp.

Playing against Sunderland the other evening, Villa did not look like a team which had lost 9 out of their 13 away games in the season.

Within first half an hour in that game, they had slammed 4 goals, one after the other; as if they were keen to send a signal to the tournament that they were ready to play a different brand of Football under their new boss.

The sword is still hanging on Villa though as far as demotion is concerned. They are just one defeat away from getting back to that bottom zone again, but, that’s not a concern for Sherwood.

He wants his boys to be as attacking as they can without worrying about the consequences.

According to Sherwood, it’s very important to bring the wingers more into play and use the speed. Continue reading ‘Tim Sherwood generated Spark in Aston Villa Camprgb’
