Gael Clichy’s short term memory

July 5, 2011 by


Gael Clichy became the 65th left back on Manchester City’s books as he signed this week for 7m from Arsenal. And proves that two years is a VERY LONG TIME in football, especially for those with short memories. Clichy in 2009… “If you really believe you are a player who thinks only about money then […]

Spurs keep the North London flag flying

March 10, 2011 by


This year’s North London representative in the Champions League quarter finals, are surprisingly Tottenham Hotspur.
