One Step Forward, Three Steps Back?

January 28, 2011 by


The marquee signing of Luis Suarez should be making me smile, yet being a fan of Liverpool FC is never straight forward. News had surfaced early this morning, that Liverpool had rebuffed Chelsea’s offer of £35m for Fernando Torres. On hearing that, I just shrugged it off.. “Ah, Torres isn’t leaving, we have new owners, […]

January 23, 2011 by


The last seven days have been rather eventful for televisions Karen Brady. First off, allegations were made that West Ham vice-chairman Brady had text senior players at West Ham, suggesting they should revolt against manager Avram Grant.

King Kenny Back in the Dugout

The inevitable finally happened, and Roy Hodgson was dismissed of his duties at Anfield. The 3-1 hammering at Blackburn proved too much, the final straw for NESV. Kenny Dalglish has been appointed interim boss until the end of the season, a steering job until the summer. In the short term, it should improve results as […]

Blackburn Jokers

January 4, 2011 by


Blackburn Rovers sunk to an embarrassing new low today, they announced their attempted signing of Brazilian playboy Ronaldinho. The Venky’s group, the company who recently bought Blackburn Rovers are jumping from one disaster to another. First, was their bewildering sacking of Sam Allardyce, which you can understand to a point – the new owners might want their own man […]
