Living across the river from what used to be the oldest club in the football league, 130 years of history torn apart by a single man’s arrogance in pursuing his own fame and status, I am delighted that wages have eventually been paid at Notts County FC (with HMRC next on the list) following the […]

It’s football’s latest conundrum. Team ‘A’ signs a player that they want so much they pay them a ridiculous amount to get them on board, they then safeguard themselves by slapping an even more ridiculous buyout clause on top and ‘hope’ that the player fulfils his potential at the club whilst seeing out his contract […]

One of the few Championship matches I attended last season was in April when Sheffield Wednesday and Nottingham Forest played out a meaningless mid-table fixture at Hillsborough with neither club posing threat of relegation with both also mathematically adrift of the playoffs. On the day Sheffield Wednesday managed by Steve Bruce who landed the gig […]

So Paul Pogba wants to leave Manchester United and the only feasible solution would be to hook up with another fellow French world cup winning legendary midfielder in Zinedine Zidane at Real Madrid. Problem is Real Madrid need to offload Gareth Bale and at least one other star asset to do this, but no offers […]

Brazil were crowned champions of South America for the ninth time on Sunday as the Selecao won the Copa America in their home stadium in Rio de Janeiro after beating unlikely finalists Peru 3-1 in the Maracana. The Copa hasn’t always been the favourite tournament for the record five time World Cup winners especially in […]

I hate Chelsea. I despise what they do and how they do it from their preposterous loaning system and their prostitution of youngsters to the way they treat their managers with little in fact no respect and year on year get away with it by winning trophy after trophy. 16 in 16 years under Abramovich […]

The two year cycle between the UEFA U21 European Championships is almost over as the 2019 edition is set to start this Sunday in Italy & San Marino with a number of top international nations from the continents elite participating in a twelve team tournament held over the next two weeks. Current holders Germany and […]

After a fabulous season where the young defender has really come of age in becoming one of the best in his position on the planet, the hugely sought after teenager Matthijs de Ligt has decided to go on his summer holiday this week with a huge grey cloud of uncertainty (all be it with a […]

Back in February after a 4-0 defeat at Bournemouth I went on record to say that Chelsea should ignore the haters in both media and on the terraces and keep faith in their Italian Coach Maurizio Sarri and just let him do his job. That job has now all but ended with Sarri & Chelsea […]

The final Bank Holiday before the start of the summer and the last Monday in May here in England can only ever mean just one thing. Championship Playoff Final Day and the most valuable match in world football. This year estimated at £170m to the winners the match between Aston Villa and Derby County in […]

20 years ago this month on the 26th May 1999 Manchester United became the first English club to win a historic and memorable unprecedented treble of FA Premier League, FA Cup and UEFA European Champions League as they needed injury time and a couple of substitutes to famously snatch treble glory from German Giants Bayern […]

As I did a year ago for the 2018 FA Cup Final between Chelsea and Manchester United I returned to Wembley at the weekend to watch Manchester City become the first team in history to win the domestic treble as they beat a sorrowful Watford by a record equaling 6-0 final scoreline. It was the […]

Manchester City became the first team in history to win the domestic treble with a 116 year record equalling 6-0 thumping of Watford in Saturday’s FA Cup Final but the news that legendary captain Vincent Kompany will leave in the summer to take up the role as Anderlecht Player Manager, at the club where it […]

Recent impressive performances by Jack Grealish during Aston Villa’s promotion push to the Playoff finals have suggested that this annoyingly talented Birmingham born youngster might be on the radar for one or two Premier League clubs this summer? With Tottenham Hotspur in particular long since admiring I’ve always questioned whether Grealish has the temperament to […]

What a week it’s been for English Premier League clubs in Europe and for the first time ever both major European finals will be contested by four teams from the same country. I’ve never said it until now because I’ve never really believed it until now, but English Football is officially the best in the […]

Moura-mazing stuff in Amsterdam last night (see what I did there) as Spurs unbelievably came back from the brink, no doubt inspired by the previous night’s proceedings at Anfield, to turn a 0-3 aggregate deficit around to go through on away goals in dramatic last minute fashion. You simply couldn’t have put it in a […]

This wasn’t supposed to happen… But remember Barcelona had form, they went to Roma only a year ago with a 4-1 lead and failed… Whilst Liverpool, they have been having European nights like this at Anfield since… Well let’s just say it’s in their DNA. It was supposed to be a routine nights work for […]

After the depressing departure from Manchester United in December it seemed that Jose Mourinho had nowhere left to go. His style, outgrown by the likes of Pep Guardiola at Manchester City and his swagger outshone by the likes of Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool… Moaninho was long becoming a grumpy spoilt brat who was no more […]

For those late night gridiron lovers it was the first round of the NFL draft pick in the early hours of this morning which is always an exciting time of year as the seeded teams in American Football get to choose from the best college football graduates in America. First pick went to Arizona Cardinals […]

As the top level professional footballers got together and shown their collective love for Paul Pogba in this seasons PFA Team of the Year in an XI otherwise dominated by deserving Liverpool and Manchester City superstars, I wanted to provide you with my team of players from outside the top two clubs that should have […]
