January Sales

November 24, 2010 by


Christmas is approaching and this can mean only one thing. Yes, the January transfer window will soon be upon us. Harry Redknapp will have one hand on a Christmas cracker and the other holding a mobile to his ear, frantically trying to buy another midfielder for his Spurs side. It’s a well-known fact that the […]

The Saviours of West Ham?

November 22, 2010 by


Its been over 10 days since my last post, this was mainly due to a hectic work schedule and a few days holiday in the UK visiting friends and family. But I knew that West Ham would be my topic of conversation when returning this morning! West Ham are rock bottom of the Premier League, with […]

Everyone Loves Rotation

November 11, 2010 by


Last nights game at Villa Park saw Ian Holloway make 10 changes to his Blackpool side, something which, as a manager of a football club your entitled to do (in my opinion). Yet, the Premier League are more than likely to hand Holloway a whopping £25,000 fine a la Wolves and Mick McCarthy for fielding […]

Slavia Praha 0-3 Jablonec

November 6, 2010 by


Friday night football, live on the local TV stations, floodlit ground, the Slavia ultra’s singing their hearts out. All of these points should have inspired the Slavia team last night, instead they slumped to a heavy 0-3 defeat at home to Jablonec. The performance was terrible, a real shocker. There was no shape with the […]

Albino United

November 2, 2010 by


My girlfriend was travelling on the metro recently and pointed out an advert about “Albino United”. After a bit of research into this subject I thought it would be good to spread the awareness and share the message of Albino United. In Tanzania, over the last few years there has been over 50 albino’s murdered […]
