How far can Leicester go this season?

To say Claudio Ranieri and Leicester City shocked the world with their title winning campaign last season would be a profound understatement. Tipped at the start of the season to get relegated, Jamie Vardy, Riyad Mahrez and friends put in performances of the highest quality week in week out during the 15/16 campaign, cruising their way to deserved Premier League glory. And with their squad going into the 16/17 season relatively unchanged, who’s to say that they won’t go and do it all over again? There are, however, two reasons as to why that may not be the case.

Tekkerz Kid: Introduction to Birmingham’s 7 year old Football Star

If you’re not aware of who Tekkerz Kid is then you’ll be highly surprised and probably jealous about the skills this kid possesses. The clue is in the name, Tekkerz meaning technique and 7 year old Lorenzo Greer a.k.a”Tekkerz Kid” has it in abundance. In football the term Wonderkid is used widely but when you see this what can only be classed as a child not only perfoming skills but the technique to curl a free kick in from 20+ yards or his control of the ball simply blows you away.

With almost 75 thousand subscribers on YouTube, Lorenzo has entertained and wowed viewers with football boot reviews, shooting tutorials, skills tutorials and overall football content.

John Terry for England

New England manager Sam Allardyce has been open to the idea and said Terry could return for England. Even if Big Sam gives John the call, would it be in the defender’s best interest to accept?
