Moyes & Neville

After yet another under acceptable performance from an Everton team devoid of genuine guile the news from the physio was worse than hoped but exactly as expected.  The writhing on the floor of Phil Neville following a brutal scything from Dickson Etuhu suggested a debilitating ailment against the current climate […]

Fan Diary #6: Yossi Benayoun And My Football Ulcer

I was a little concerned coming into the last fixture. It wasn’t because Burnley has already beaten United and Everton. It wasn’t because Burnley aren’t afraid to attack. I saw these things as healthy signs for Liverpool.  Liverpool usually do well against attacking sides. And Liverpool have a habit of […]

When Will Paul Scholes Learn to Tackle?

Manchester United finished up 3-1 victors over Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane, but the victory was somewhat spoiled by the sending off of Paul Scholes, who was made to walk after two yellow card offences. Did the punishment fit the crime or is it about time the ‘Ginger Prince’ […]

Atlético Madrid Continues Their Stumbling Start

Atlético Madrid prolonged their faltering start with a 1-1 draw against Racing Santander on Saturday.  Even with a man advantage for the majority of the second half, they lacked the finishing touch to nip the win from a feisty Santander side.  Racing came off a 4-1 drubbing at El Sardinero […]

I Saw Something Other Than Adebayor On Saturday…

Saturday’s Manchester City v. Arsenal match was exciting for many reasons: six goals, fast, fluid play, a fun atmosphere, two players playing against their former team, fans throwing all sorts of things at one certain player… All of this made for a great match. While I’ll only mention Adebayor’s celebration […]

Premier League Misses The Mark With Intro Video

There’s something about the new Premier League intro that plays before each game that bothers me. If you haven’t seen it, take a minute to watch it first (click the video above). It’s definitely a feel good video that illustrates the global appeal of the Premier League from Africa to […]

Must See TV

For the fourth time in three years, the Galaxy and Burn, I mean Hoops, or whatever they are called these days, has played an entertaining game of the highest sort. This is a big break for MLS, as two of the biggest TV markets in the country are featured in […]

Robbie Down Under

As the EPL and the rest of Europe completes the first month of the domestic season, it is interesting to look at the travels of perhaps the EPL’s greatest finisher: one Robbie Fowler.  Having been discarded by Blackburn amidst the outing of old friend Paul Ince, many wondered what Fowler’s […]

Should Adebayor Be Banned for Life?

Manchester City v Arsenalby leslery Emmanuel Adebayor has committed the ultimate sin. Leaving a big four club for a side with ambition to join the elite clubs in England. For this, and his actions on the pitch in Saturday’s 4-2 City win at Eastlands, he must be banned for life […]
