Brazilian star Neymar wasn’t just claiming the worst haircut of the decade at the weekend; he also claimed he was racially abused by the Scotland fans. Such claims can cause huge damage to the accused parties, even if found to be untrue. Scotland’s fans are notorious for their travelling support, the Tartan Army travel in […]

All Aboard Train England

I hate this time of the season, International week. I just don’t have the same enthusiasm for England as I do for my club side. England games just get in the way of the Premier League season.

You would be hard pushed to predict the relegated trio come May. West Ham who have looked woeful all season are finally starting to play, smashing 5 past Burnley in the […]
