Yet to make a signing in this transfer window, Burnley know they need to act quickly to bolster their ranks if they are to stand any chance at avoiding relegation.

Premier League
Tom Cunningham, Editor - Dec 24, 2021

Before a ball was even kicked, we had plenty of drama to divulge in the Premier League. We had the return of Cristiano Ronaldo, and what was meant to be the ultimate return of Manchester United.

Christmas is fast approaching which means one thing for football fans: the January transfer window will soon be with us.

Tom Cunningham, Editor - Sep 23, 2021

We’re now six games into the Premier League season, and not many surprises have occurred as of yet. In fact, the only two shocks have been Brighton & Hove Albion’s revenge against ‘XG’ (expected goals), and Manchester City’s blunt nature going forward. Amongst that, however, we’ve seen an expectedly poor start from Arsenal, and a […]

Tom Cunningham, Editor - Sep 16, 2021

Last week’s Premier League predictions went so well, that we thought we’d give it another shot, hoping to once again be forced to turn down claims that we can see into the future.

Premier League predictions
Tom Cunningham, Editor - Sep 10, 2021

Making Premier League predictions is never easy; it feels like playing the lottery at times. One week, Liverpool could blitz almost any team in the league. Meanwhile, the next, they could lose 7-2 to Aston Villa on the same day that Manchester United lose 6-1 to Tottenham Hotspur. Despite the difficulties, however, we, at LastWordonFootball, […]
