Its been a busy time this last couple of weeks, I was back in the UK for Christmas, catching up with family and friends but today I have had time to sit back reflect over the 10 days. Here are 3 things I have learnt over the festive period. 1. England cannot handle the snow […]

The Great Rafa Debate

December 22, 2010 by


This week’s rumour mill has been going crazy, Rafa Benitez has been in and out at Inter more times than the hokey cokey. It’s still unclear if he is manager at Inter or not? No confirmed reports yet from Inter, but the general consensus is, that Rafa has gone. This has created alot of heated debate on […]

Advantage City?

December 20, 2010 by


Can Man City claim top spot in the Premier League? They face an Everton side, who are win less in 7 and are dangerously close to the relegation zone. Should City win tonight, they would sit top of the Premier League at Christmas. This stat is not quite as relevant as being bottom at Christmas, but […]

Kadlec takes limelight from Necid

December 16, 2010 by


The game between Sparta Prague and CSKA Moscow may have been a dead rubber, but it was a very entertaining second half as both sides looked for the win. The temperatures in Prague tonight must have been around -10, not to mention the amount of snow which fell today. But all in all, the pitch […]

December 9, 2010 by


So, it was announced today that Alan Pardew would take the reins at Newcastle United. He is the man Mike Ashley has targeted as having more Premier League experience than Chris Hughton? Hmmm, just. Its not that I don’t like Pardew, far from it, I think he is a stand up guy and a good manager. But, […]

Newcastle sack Hughton

December 6, 2010 by


Amazing scenes at Newcastle today, Mike Ashley sacked manager Chris Hughton after their 3-1 defeat to West Brom on Sunday. I guess 11th place is not enough for some owners, its a crazy decision and one that alienates Ashley even further from the Toon fans. The official line from the club was “Regrettably the board now feels […]

The Dust Has Settled.. BUT

December 4, 2010 by


Im still at a loss as to how England are not hosting the World Cup in 2018? Of course, its all down to FIFA and how they operate and naturally being English im biased on this matter. Yet, all logical reasons pointed to England winning the 2018 bid, we have the stadiums, we have the history and […]
