CAN MAN UNITED CLOSE IN ON MAN CITY?

Manchester United are keen on bridging the gap with their more balanced city rivals this summer. Coach Jose Mourinho has been constantly criticized for his defensive tactics and safe way of play that does not even get the results a lot of time.

A lot more United fans want the club to play attacking football, as it was in the past but the Portuguese tactician prefers control in a game that cavalier football. The team play convincingly early on in the season, the prospects were good. However towards the season, the number of goalscorers available to the team had really dwindled. RomeluLukaku’s conversation rate started dwindling while Zlatan Ibrahimovic was obviously on his way out. The style of play and locker room issues started affecting the team balance as well.

Watford Sack Marco Silva

Premier League side Watford has fired its manager Marco Silva. The club felt the manager’s focus had shifted so they took the step to hopefully cut short the run of poor results. Watford are unhappy that Silva was open to an earlier move to Everton when an opportunity presented itself.

The Hornets were once in the top four after being the sixth side on the list of summer spenders in the league. They are now in the 10th place but there are concerns that they would plunge further. They are five points ahead of the red zone but the board felt the results were tied to Silva’s loss of focus. The last straw was the 2-0 loss to Leicester City on Saturday.
