Wolfsburg’s Dilemma

Ah the rumor mill. Such a crazy addictive hobby. And it’s always a load of rubbish. The thing that will stir it up more than anything is a massive purchase. Due to the particularities of January and the desperation of clubs, there tend to be more ridiculous purchases than during […]

El Hadji Diouf Deserves To Be Banned For Sick Taunts

I have a feeling that El Hadji Diouf has never read the book How To Win Friends And Influence People. If he had, perhaps the Blackburn striker wouldn’t have behaved the way he did during Saturday’s FA Cup game against Queens Park Rangers (QPR) where he stood over QPR’s Jamie Mackie, […]
