Alex Neil: A Trip Down Memory Lane

There’s a saying in football that you’ve probably all heard before – “play for the name on the front of the shirt, and they’ll remember the name on the back.” Alex Neil hasn’t featured as a player for Preston North End, but it’s clear for all to see that he gave absolutely everything for that famous Lilywhites. This piece is my attempt […]

Match Preview: Middlesbrough vs. Preston North End

It’s a very quick turnaround from Saturday’s defeat in Buckinghamshire as Alex Neil’s men travel to the North East to face Neil Warnock’s Middlesbrough side on Tuesday night. Neil Warnock hasn’t enjoyed his last few encounters with North End or Alex Neil, going 3 games without a win against North End and never beating Alex Neil as a manager. But we haven’t […]

5 Talking Points From the Last Week

Had the second half been as dismal as the first on Saturday, I feel this piece would have had a lot more of a negative focus.

Has The Impressive Daniel Iversen Exposed a Weakness at North End?

Following a very busy January transfer window in which North End brought 8 players to the club, the one position that very few perhaps expected a signing was the goalkeeping department.
