7 Teams Who Are Too Good For Their Leagues

Tomas Soucek of SK Slavia Praha celebrates with teammates after scoring his team's first goal during the UEFA Europa League Quarter Final Second Leg match between Chelsea and Slavia Praha...

From poor managerial appointments to miss-management of funds, there are many factors which can hold a club back. In some cases though, clubs are hamstring purely by virtue of the country in which they are based. Europe’s big five leagues dominate when it comes to Europe’s, and to be honest the world’s best players, and in the last six Champions League finals, only Premier League, La Liga and Serie A sides have been represented.

Those of you who have been subscribed to the channel for a year or more will remember that I used to do a series looking at a clubs last 7 top scorers and where those players are now. I did it for Liverpool, Chelsea, Atletico Madrid and many more. Now, after more than twelve months in the wilderness, I am bringing it back to life for no apparent reason.

7 Managers Who Never Played Football

The most common route into football management is, rather unsurprisingly, having been a professional footballer and then transitioning into coaching and management. It has become increasingly clear over the years that one's ability on the pitch is of absolutely no bearing on one’s talents in the dugout, and some of the finest managers in world football right now were really mediocre or worse than mediocre players themselves.

7 Strangest Ballon d'Or Nominees

From Alfredo di Stefano to Cristiano Ronaldo, the Ballon d’Or has been won by some of the greatest footballers to have ever lived. Once an award given to the outstanding European individual over the course of a calendar year, and now an award open to all of the world and seemingly a popularity contest picked out of a hat with no rhyme or reason - sorry Luka - the Ballon d’Or is still widely considered to be the most prestigious individual award in football.

The arrival of Roman Abramovich at Chelsea in June 2003 shook up the landscape of English football forever. In his 16+ years in charge of the club, Abramovich has been criticised for being short-termist, ruthless and too quick to hire and fire managers. Despite those criticisms, since his arrival, no English team has won more trophies than the West Londoners.

7 Oldest Football Clubs: Where Are They Now?

Association football, as a proper codified sport, first started to take shape in the 1840’s with the Cambridge Rules. That was followed by the Sheffield Rules in the 1850’s, before Ebenezer Cobb Morley penned the Laws of the Game on behalf of the Football Association in 1863 which remain the fundamental principles of the sport we know and love today, and it’s around this time that we should expect to see the first football clubs being formed.

7 Best Football Clubs Not Based in Cities

If you rattle off some of the biggest football clubs on Earth, say - Real Madrid, Barcelona, Juventus, Bayern Munich, Manchester United - it is immediately obvious that they are all based in cities, and typically rather large ones.

Over the weekend I did a video on the best player under the age of 23 at every club in the Premier League. Well, it was meant to be every club, but some idiot forgot about Aston Villa… sorry again about that Villa fans. Feel free to give that video a watch after this if you haven’t already, but there were a fair few comments craving a Premier League video on even younger prospects.

Brendan Rodgers' First 7 Celtic Signings: Where Are They Now?

Brendan Rodgers took over as Celtic manager in May 2016 after roughly nine months out of the game following his dismissal by Liverpool. There was largely a feeling of excitement about the Northern Irishman’s arrival, and after losing his first competitive game to Gibraltar side Lincoln Red Imps, things went pretty well for Rodgers in Glasgow - certainly domestically, at least.

7 Clubs Who Need Bigger Stadiums

I’ve gone a little bit stadium mad on this channel over the last month or so. We’ve had a then and now video on the first 7 World Cup final stadiums, a look at 7 fascinating abandoned stadiums and seven - or fourteen I guess - of the stadiums located closest together from across the globe.

7 Best Goalkeepers in World Football Right Now

Between October 2017 and January 2018, and I really can’t believe that was more than a year ago, I did videos looking at the 7 greatest footballers of all time in every position, which culminated in our own HITC Sevens all time 23 man squad and starting XI. Of all those videos, including the final XI, by far the most viewed was the goalkeepers seven.

7 Abandoned Football Stadiums

Those of you who follow and are subscribed to this channel will be well-aware of my love of football stadiums - or stadia - but what you’re likely unaware of is my fascination with abandoned places. I’ve gone down the rabbit hole of looking at ghost towns and abandoned cities online for many more hours than anyone really ought to, so today’s video is sort of a happy coming together of two things that I have long been interested in.
