Why Sky Sports News Sucks

Thought for the day: If you were an alien that landed on earth and were forced to watch the Sky Sports News program “Through The Night,” would you know that the biggest sporting event in the world waa taking place, the one that happens only once every four years, the […]

The 2008-2009 season starts end of month but several big names will be missing come opening day.  AC Milan especially are showing their weakened status with several poor performances in pre-season, including a 0 – 5 loss to London’s Chelsea last week in Russia.  Who do you think will be the most […]

Holland Preview

Premiership Preview–5. Aston Villa

Aston Villa surprised many neutrals last season, and probably even some of their own supporters, with their 6th-place finish. In 2006-2007, the Villans checked in at a respectable 11th, a nice improvement from 16th the season before. Villa’s emergence, led by manager Martin O’Neill, came with one of the smallest, […]

Premiership Preview–6. Tottenham

Premiership Preview–7. Portsmouth

Just like Manchester City and Everton, Portsmouth is coming off their best season in England’s top division in years, and I’m not sure there’d be much argument from the South Coast side’s supporters by saying it was the best season in club history. Portsmouth wound up in 8th place, their […]
