The Relegation Rumble: Bolton Wanderers

With Aston Villa’s demise the top of the league once again appears calcified, so, like Kim Kardashian crammed into a designer dress, the bulk of the tension will be at the bottom.  Here is the first of a series of assessments of this season’s relegation candidates. As wretched as Manchester […]

An Inter Fan’s Summer Transfer Wish

After witnessing Inter Milan crash out of the Champions League Round of 16 to Manchester United, I had the same expression as Javier Zanetti.  An expression like WHAT THE F#$%K.  What will it take for Inter to win the Champions League?  Here’s an Inter fan’s summer transfer wish list, its […]

Newcastle Ban Journalist From St James’ Park

Will Mike Ashley never learn? It seems that Ashley is attempting a Emperors New Clothes scenario at Newcastle by banning anyone who dares to speculate on the future of Joe Kinnear.

Red Card Rising

Not since the fall of the Soviet Union has there been a menacing force like the red card. It somehow magically appears out of thin air, from the referee’s pocket to rear its ugly head. The red card is to football players, what Valhallawas to the Vikings. A place where […]

Man United Need Leaders Like Roy Keane

“There’s only one Keano” usually isn’t sung as a lamentation, but never before have Man United missed Roy Keane so much.

One win in the league in 3 months, the manager still recovering from his triple heart bypass operation, crowds are falling, the caretakers pointing out, in case you’ve missed it, that Newcastle find themselves in a relegation […]

Do or die for West Brom

With 24 more points available in the 2008-2009 season, I hesitate to say that next weekend’s match with Stoke City is a must-win for West Bromwich Albion for its hopes for avoiding the drop. But it really is. The Baggies are rooted to the bottom of the table with 24 points […]
