Darren Bent For England…Again?

It’s not often a regular 20 goal a season Premier League striker isn’t seen as a regular for the England side, but Darren Bent has bucked the trend with his continued failure to break through on to the international scene. Since arriving at Sunderland last summer, Bent’s goal scoring record […]

Pressure Is On Sunderland's New Star

Sunderland’s record signing Asamoah Gyan has admitted he faces a stern task to justify his £13million transfer fee. The Ghanaian forward completed a move to the North East on deadline day, but the transfer raised eyebrows with its vast price tag, and Gyan is well aware that expectations from him […]

Japan v England: Open Thread

In the United States, it’s one of those long holiday weekends, which are a rarity. It’s time to remember the fallen heroes who have died while in military service for the United States. It’s also an opportunity to spend time with the family, have BBQ’s, visit the beach and more […]

The England Outsiders #5. The Strikers

2006 was a disaster for England’s much vaunted strikers in so many ways it was depressing. It was clearly Sven Goran-Eriksson’s nadir as the England supremo as his eccentric choices left England woefully short of options. Michael Owen was so off the pace as to be redundant and his World […]

Premier League Footballer of the Week, Gameweek 31

Stand Up ye Brave Scots! The definition of the word epic is as follows: heroic; majestic; impressively great. Such were moments from a few brave Scots this weekend that saw their respective clubs gain a valuable three points to either continue their pursuit of the title, or stave off a […]

Where Now For Steve Bruce And Sunderland?

14 games without a Premiership win would be worrying for several sides, but when you’ve spent the best part of £50 million to improve the team, 4 months without a win is disastrous. When Bruce took the reigns at the Stadium of Light in the summer, the club had survived […]

A new decade, a new year, and 10 players I’ll be keeping a watchful eye on for one reason or another in 2010. We all know Drogba, Rooney, Torres, Defoe and the lot will get their 20+ goals and single handily place their teammates on their shoulders and march onwards. […]

Monday Premier League Roundup in 232 Characters

Because Twitter won’t let me post more than 140 characters, here are my thoughts about the Premier League matches I watched on television Monday: Sunderland can’t hold on to a lead, Wolves can’t score, Spurs look fast on the break, Bellamy and Tevez are both dynamite when they’re playing together, […]

Why Can’t David Healy Score In The Premiership

If you were your country’s top scorer with a healthy 35 goals in 73 appearances, chances are you’d be an established top league player in most countries in Europe. Add to that record a career that has seen you start out at Manchester United and take in spells at Leeds […]

Darren Bent’s Rant Goes A-Twitter

When I first heard of Twitter, I thought it was a dirty verb, like: “Get Twittered!” or “Go Twitter yourself!” (And maybe there’s still potential for that.) Turns out it’s a social networking website. And it has undeniably become the Next Big Net Thing. In addition to allowing friends to keep up with each other’s day-to-day goings-on, all […]

Resurgent Tottenham Surprise Everyone

Tottenham started the season as serious contenders to break into the top four, but as we all know this was not to be. The joke “What’s the difference between Spurs and a triangle?…A triangle has more points” was going on into late October, and until the last few weeks Tottenham […]

Video highlights of Spurs earlier in the season would have been filed in the Horror category, but their performances of late can be found under the Best Seller section, such is the way Tottenham are playing.
