Who Said It Was a Quiet Week in English Football?

montella vincenzo Who Said It Was a Quiet Week in English Football?I don’t know about you, but the past week has been pretty quiet on the football front. Maybe it’s all of the anticipation about last minute transfer signings before the window closes, or no Premiership matches for a week.

If you’re like me and you crave good football articles, peruse through these fascinating pieces:

Veteran writer Brian Glanville takes a closer look at Vincenzo Montella, the Roma striker who’s now at Fulham. Montella was also the topic of debate in this week’s EPL Talk Podcast interview with Gabriele Marcotti.

Not again. But Kia Joorabchian is reported to be trying to buy another Premiership club. This time it’s Fulham, where the Iranian is publicly stating that Chris Coleman has nothing to worry about in terms of losing his job? Hmm…where did we hear that before? West Ham and Alan Pardew perhaps?

The Daily Telegraph takes a fascinating look at how a group is trying to preserve the history and memorabilia of the great amateur sides from County Durham in England. Don’t dismiss the amateur game before reading this article.

And lastly Henry Winter has some fun by asking Steve McClaren ten questions before the Spanish inquisition. England plays Spain in a friendly next Wednesday. I particularly was taken aback by Henry’s jab at America’s football landscape, calling it “hicksville.” Read the article here.

    Why would the US football landscape be perceived as anything but hicksville? Despite Lalas’ claims about MLS!
