The Worst Premiership Signings Of The Noughties

For every Ronaldo, there’s a Shevchenko. Sometimes, great reputations come at a great cost yet fail to deliver. Shevchenko is a great player to start with. Feared throughout Europe, his performances for Dynamo Kiev and A.C. Milan saw him become one of the most lethal strikers in the world. Once […]

Least Valuable Premier League XI

This is not the worst team in the Premier League.  It is the least valuable.  This team would incite the masses with talent, with name recognition and with expense.  They would then fail pathetically.  This team could be composed entirely of Newcastle players, but we thought we’d include a few […]

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 […]

Time For Aaron Lennon To Show Consistency

Anyone who’s caught Tottenham in action recently will not fail to have been impressed by Aaron Lennon’s recent form on the right hand side of Spurs’ midfield. For me, it’ll be a major surprise if he’s not in Fabio Capello’s next England squad for the Friendly against Slovakia and the […]

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 […]

Tottenham 4-0 Dinamo Zagreb: Video Highlights

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. Harry Redknapp has turned the side into world beaters especially after their convincing 4-0 […]

Ramos' Revolution Can Pay Dividends

It’s certainly been a busy summer at White Hart Lane this year as Juande Ramos begins to weed out the players he feels are holding Spurs back over the last few weeks and looks to bring in the kind of players he feels can bring more silverware Tottenham’s way. With […]

Is David Bentley Really Worth 15 Million Pounds?

So David Bentley, the right winger who many believe will be the successor to David Beckham, has signed for Tottenham Hotspur in a deal worth 15 million pounds. But is he worth it? For Tottenham, Blackburn and David Bentley, the transfer move is a win-win-win. The former Blackburn, Norwich and […]

Friday Transfer Rumor Mill (6/27/08)

Mee-lan look set to make Emmanuel Adebayor their newest signing, sending Arsene Wenger scouring for replacements. The Boss may like the cut of Peter Crouch’s under-rated jib, but not for £15m. Expect Tottenham to outbid themselves by £3m on him, just to be safe. (Football 365) Arsene may actually have […]

New Newcastle United Third Shirt For 2008/2009 Season

The new Newcastle United third shirt for the 2008/2009 season has been unveiled, and it’s silver with a white trim. Designed by Adidas and sponsored by Northern Rock, the shirt will be worn today (August 9th) for the first time in a friendly against Valencia. Silver shirts are quite rare […]

Premier League Clubs Finally Getting Smarter Through Innovation

People have been writing about the modern association of soccer with business for many years now. Soccernomics, that beautiful book that marries football passion with economic realities, helpfully points out that the problem with this association is that clubs aren’t often treated with the same rules as a free-market business. […]
