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 […]

The Transfer Window Needs To Be Shut Permanently

When the transfer window was brought in to the Premier League (being the last of the major European leagues to take up this format) it was met with a very mixed reception. Although it makes for some interesting television in the final few days, particularly in the January version, I […]

Relegation Rumble

It’s squeaky bum time in the Premier League, with two matches left to play.  There is the ever exciting battle between underwhelming uberclubs for the title.  Yawn.  The second tier battle to see which club can send itself careening down next year’s table for the right to lose to a […]

Premier League Odds and Sods 23 March 2008

Manchester United 3 – Liverpool 0: The scoreline was unfair, United should have won by more.  Rooney and Ronaldo combined for five fluffed chances.  Captain Stevie disappeared twice for the Reds.  First, when he decided to stop running and not defend on the Wes Brown goal.  Second, when he failed […]

Premier League Odds and Sods 17 March 2008

Derby 0 – Manchester United 1 This match epitomizes the season for both clubs.  Derby worked but weren’t quite good enough.  United’s only enemy was their own cuteness.  Ronaldo should have scored at least three, or more according to his own verbal tally. Birmingham 1 – Newcastle 1 The result […]

Fulham FC sprang back to life on Sunday, with a startling 1-0 victory over European-bound Everton. The win, Fulham’s fourth of the season, places gives them 23 pts – an effective four points away from safety. However, Odds and Sods will now make a bold prediction.  Fulham will not be […]

Premier League Odds and Sods 25 Feb 2008

Arsenal 2- Birmingham 2 Eduardo’s injury – a horrific broken leg – stole the headlines.   But, it did not decisively affect the outcome.  Luck controlled much of it.  Birmingham capitalized upon one free kick – a questionable call – and one penalty – a blatantly wrong call.  Fabregas had two […]

Premier League Odds and Sods 21 Jan 2008

Newcastle buzzed with electricity.  The entire town pitched in, stealing Burger King hats and spray painting them black and white.  The Geordie Messiah took the pitch to a rockstar’s welcome.  Mike Ashley ordered a whopper, but he didn’t have it his way as Newcastle drew Bolton 0-0 at St. James […]

Odds and Sods 3 Jan 2008

“There’s only one Titus Bramble” chanted the Wigan faithful, and he made the difference, earning a point in their 1-1 draw with Liverpool.  Torres scored the initial goal, which salvaged Liverpool a point, but they have to be extremely disappointed with yet another poor result at “fortress” Anfield, winning only […]

Premier League 2007 Awards (Traditional)

Best Player: Cristiano Ronaldo, Manchester United It’s difficult to argue with this one.  Even if he does score a number of goals on penalties, he still produces a striker’s tally from midfield and, unlike Frank Lampard, he manages to look skillful while doing it.  The scariest thing is that he […]
