Observations of Premier League Saturday Matches, Gameweek 22

Oh my gosh, what a mish-mosh of Premier League football we saw on television on Saturday. I’m still making my way through the matches I’ve recorded, but we’ve seen one of the scrappiest games in the league featuring Stoke City against Liverpool, followed by an unconvincing display by Manchester United […]

Brian Laws Crashes The Premiership Party At Burnley

Now, I suppose some people out there are still scratching their heads over Burnley’s appointment of Brian Laws and I must admit I was a tad taken aback. Anyone without a knowledge of the game outside of the Premiership, and there are plenty of those fans in England, never mind […]

Burnley’s Away Day Woe Continues

Another away game and another game which could have been closer ends up running away from Burnley.

Premiership Promotion Preview No.3 Burnley

OK, so if you’re expecting sarcasm and a general belittling of Burnley, then I suggest you look for another article somewhere else on the internet.
