7 Football Clubs With Interesting Links & Friendships

Valentin Eysseric of ACF Fiorentina battles for the ball with Thomas Rincon of Torino Fc during the Serie A match between ACF Fiorentina and Torino FC at Stadio Artemio Franchi on October...

In the same way that unusual rivalries like the one between Crystal Palace and Brighton and Hove Albion can develop over time, so too can friendly relationships between football clubs and their supporters. I’m not talking about the relationship between a club like Chelsea in England and Vitesse in the Netherlands, where their relationship is seemingly more one of a mutually beneficial business interest, but more like the relationship between Chelsea and Rangers.

7 Lowest Premier League Winning Points Tallies

Chris Smalling of Manchester United celebrates scoring his side's third goal with Paul Pogba during the Premier League match between Manchester City and Manchester United at Etihad Stadium...

Since the start of the Premier League era in the 1992-93 season, the average points tally required to win the league has been close to 86 points. That average is dragged up significantly by Manchester City over these last two seasons, who won 100 points in 2017-18 and 98 points in 2018-19, the highest and second highest points tallies in the history of the division.

7 Tottenham Subs From Mauricio Pochettino's First Game: Where Are They Now?

Wayne Rooney of Manchester United scores a headed goal from a corner past Brad Friedel of Tottenham Hotspur during the Barclays Premier League match between Tottenham Hotspur and...

It’s a bit of an unusual time to be doing this video, since up until about a month and a half ago Mauricio Pochettino had one of the safest jobs in world football. Under his stewardship, Tottenham have become regular fixtures in the Champions League, finishing second once and third twice in the Premier League, and even reaching the Champions League final last season.

Pep Guardiola's First 7 Barcelona Signings: Where Are They Now?

Seydou Keita of Barcelona celebrates scoring his side's fourth goal during the La Liga match between Barcelona and Atletico Madrid at the Camp Nou Stadium on September 19, 2009 in...

About a year ago, I did a video on Pep Guardiola’s last 7 signings as manager of Barcelona. It did pretty woefully, so for some unknown reason I am today doing a video on Pep’s first 7 Barca signings. Given that Guardiola’s only previous managerial experience before getting the top job at the Camp Nou in 2008 was a single season with the club’s reserve team, these are essentially the first 7 signings Pep Guardiola made in management.

7 Brilliant Academy Graduates That Chelsea Let Go

Patrick Van Aanholt of Crystal Palace celebrates with Aaron Wan-Bissaka of Crystal Palace after he scores his sides first goal during the Premier League match between AFC Bournemouth and...

A short while ago I did a video on some of the best players to have come through the Manchester City academy before either being released or sold by the reigning Premier League champions. It was the first video of its kind that I’d done, and a very many people in the comments suggested that I do a similar video for Chelsea, with the popular perception being that their academy has produced some outstanding talent that never got a chance in the first team.

7 Weirdest Premier League Loan Deals

Alexandre Pato of AC Milan celebrates scoring the first goal during the Serie A match between AC Milan and FC Internazionale Milano at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza on April 2, 2011 in Milan,...

The first YouTube video I ever made, and as such the first ever HITC Sevens video, was on the 7 weirdest football transfers of all time. That was over two years ago, and I like to think the channel has improved a bit since then. Today is a bit of a throwback then, as a sort of niche sub-section of that original HITC Sevens video.

Fabio Capello's Last 7 England Debutants: Where Are They Now?

Daniel Sturridge of Trabzonspor in action during the UEFA Europa League group C match between Getafe CF and Trabzonspor at Coliseum Alfonso Perez on September 19, 2019 in Getafe, Spain.

Almost eight years on from Fabio Capello’s final game in charge of the England national team, the Italian has taken a fair bit of flack in recent weeks. A former Champions League winner who won league titles with AC Milan, Real Madrid and Roma, as well as a couple of titles that were later revoked at Juventus, Capello arrived in England with real pedigree and brought genuine excitement.

7 Small Clubs With Huge Stadiums

Typically in football, the biggest clubs have the biggest fan bases, and as such, the biggest stadiums to accommodate all their match-attending supporters. Barcelona play at the biggest football stadium in Spain, AC and Inter Milan play at the biggest football stadium in Italy, and Manchester United play in the biggest club football stadium in England - with the largest stadium, Wembley Stadium, playing host to the national team and cup finals.

7 Best Football Teams Outside the Top 5 Leagues

I did a video during the 2017-18 season on the 7 best players outside of the top 5 leagues, and it may be worth doing an updated version of that video at some point since I suspect it would be a rather different looking seven now. That’s for another time though, since today's video is all about clubs, and one of our subscribers asked if I would share my views on the 7 best clubs outside of the top 5 leagues.
