Manchester Derby – Two Days On: Deconstructing the Wreckage

For “Collymore closing in…” in 1996, you can read “It’s Michael Owen…” in 2009. Both games were littered with brilliant goals, pathetic defending and some of the most exciting football the Premier League has seen. Now though, two days on from “The Greatest Manchester Derby in the History of Anything […]

Can Diamanti Emulate Di Canio?

Can West Ham United’s new Italian talent have the same impact on the Hammers as club legend Paolo Di Canio did between 1999 and 2003? Gianfranco Zola signed Alessandro Diamanti for a fee of around £6 million in the summer. Big money for an untested player especially in light of […]

England Fringe Strikers Scoring For Fun Before World Cup

Fabio Capello has always been consistent with his selections, and in four of England’s last five matches, it has been Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney and Aston Villa’s Emile Heskey who have been England’s starting marksman and both can be considered as shoe-ins for England World Cup squad.

Promoted Trio Enjoying Life At The Top

After such an eventful weekend, it would be easy to lose sight of some of the Premier League’s lesser lights but away from the glitz and glamour of the Manchester and London derbies a strange thing happened – all three promoted teams won. Stranger still, it wasn’t the first time […]

I Like Craig Bellamy. Really.

Okay, let’s be clear, Craig Bellamy is wild. He is rash, unpredictable, and probably would be a career criminal if he wasn’t a footballer. He’s got more tattoos than John Mayer’s right arm, more baggage than an Airbus landing at Heathrow, more teeth than Mr. Ed, and he’s played for […]

Gary Megson Is Unloved and Unwanted

Well you’ve got to hand it to him, Gary Megson must have the thickest skin in professional football. I’ve seen him barracked by his own fans at 4 different clubs over the years and that’s some going, even in the fickle world of the football supporter. At a Nottingham Forest […]

Can Ledley King Keep Going?

The sight of Ledley King pulling up when Didier Drogba was running towards the Tottenham goal in Sunday’s London derby left me with a resigned feeling of deja vu. Even on one leg, a training regime of swimming twice a week and the frailties of the midfield formation that wasn’t […]

Ben Foster is not the Answer for Manchester United

Fan Diary #8: Fernando Torres…

Going into the West Ham match I asked for a brace (minimum) from Fernando Torres and boy did he deliver. This calls for some pondifercating on The Football Genius. Well, maybe Torres isn’t at Genius Status yet. But of all the players playing in England he’s got to be among […]
