Should Tottenham Make A Last Ditch Transfer Move?

With the transfer window slamming shut tomorrow Tottenham have surprisingly been one of the most inactive clubs. But should Harry Redknapp make a last ditch attempt to strengthen his squad ahead of their assault on the Champions League? Redknapp’s quiet summer has been quite surprising when you consider his reputation […]

Premier League Footballer of the Week, Gameweek 3

Gameweek three of the Barclays Premier League had that business as usual feel to it as it marked the first time in the young season where one or two of those marquee matches weren’t on offer. Approaching the weekend, the Aston Villa v Everton clash intrigued me the most, while […]

The England Outsiders #4. The Midfielders

It was often said through out much of the last ten years that England’s midfield was its strongest point. With Beckham in his pomp and Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard ably assisted by a constant rotation of players wedged in to the left midfield position, it often felt a little […]

Richard Dunne Shows Manchester City What They Need

During the takeover of Manchester City last summer, City’s Chief Executive, Gary Cook made several rather tasteless comments but one stood out above all the others for me. During an interview with the Daily Telegraph, Cook was outlining City’s plan for world domination. As Wednesday’s defeat at Tottenham showed, sometimes […]

Lethargic and Disjointed But Liverpool Can’t Panic

The unfortunate downside of modern technology means that any armchair fan can now comment on any team without actually seeing the game. As I type this, I’m listening to Radio 5 and Liverpool “fans” are calling for the head of Benitez. “The worst display I’ve ever seen from a Liverpool […]

The No-Big-Four-Allowed EPL Team Of The Season

As we near the end of what has been and still is an exciting season in the EPL, the various gongs and awards are being given out. As usual, they create plenty of controversy, particularly in the case of Ryan Giggs, who was named Footballer of the Year despite only […]

The PFA Player Of The Year Shortlists Are A Joke

If today’s PFA Player of the Year shortlist shows us anything, announcing the player of the year with almost 6 weeks of the season left looks a stupid decision. With only Steven Gerrard not from Manchester United on the six player shortlist, it just shows how quickly things in football […]

2008/09 Team Of The Season

Towards the end of this month, the Premiership team of the year will be announced along with the PFA players’ player of the year. In anticipation of this, I have decided to select my own best eleven of the season and invite you to do likewise. So here goes: Goalkeeper: […]

Aaron Lennon: Potential Starting To Pay Dividends

Since the turn of the year, Aaron Lennon has been in outstanding form. His club exploits have been rewarded with not just an international call up, but a place in the starting eleven in England’s last two matches, the latter being a competitive qualifier. This is just rewards for Lennon […]

Stewart Downing: The Enigma

I’ve wondered for a long time what it is that managers see in Stewart Downing, particularly England managers. Since his first call up in February 2005, Downing has been pretty much been a regular in the England squad, but why? I don’t understand how one player can have gained 22 […]

Can Aston Villa Win The Premier League?

It was early in the second half against Arsenal when all seemed lost for Aston Villa. The team looked shell-shocked after Abou Diaby scored a wonderful team-effort goal that seemingly took both Aston Villa and their fans out of the game. After that second goal went in, I thought to […]

George Best: 1946-2005

“Georgie Best, there’s only one Georgie Best, one Georgie Be…st, there’s only one Georgie Best” sang the 20,182 Portsmouth and Chelsea fans at Fratton Park today. For an in-depth tribute to understand how much Bestie meant to the British hearts, click on the image to hear interviews and more from […]

Everton progress report after eight Premier League games

Gladbach add to Klinsmann’s woes by confirming Johnson’s injury

The first post backing their player already caused a stir among United Soccer men’s soccer’s most devout supporters, but Borussia Moenchegladbach didn’t stop there. One day after midfielder/defender Fabian Johnson returned unexpectedly early from international duty with the U.S., the Bundesliga club sent out two tweets assuring that yes, the player who’d been […]
