The Best Premier League Starting XI of 2010

Ah, it’s that time of the year again and I simply love it. No, not Christmas, but the end of the year lists that all end up being about the same everywhere you look. Seriously, I think every music magazine has awarded album of the year to Kanye West, but […]

Chelsea Face A Crucial Month

October ended with Chelsea looking imperious and pulling away from the chasing pack at the top of the Premiership. The side seemed to playing with such verve and spirit that I simply couldn’t see where any worthy challenge could come from. Manchester United were struggling to hit any real form, […]

Chelsea Title Challenge Continues To Cool With Draw Against Newcastle

The problems at Chelsea continue to mount as a draw in the North East allowed Manchester United to overhaul the champions at the top of the table for the first time this season.

With an important month in the title race about to begin injuries, backroom drama and poor performances have left confidence shattered at a club that has only collected four points from a possible fifteen.

Iron Man 2 and Mother’s Day Champions FC Football played second fiddle this weekend to Mother’s Day and Robert Downey Jr. & Co. running around saving the world from a Russian villain.

Premier League Footballer of the Week, Gameweek 36

For Those About to Stoke, We Score 7 on You Should Someone Tell Wayne Rooney He’s Needed on the Pitch & not in that Hospitality Box? For a second there I actually thought Rooney was allegorically announcing his retirement from Manchester United as he symbolically passed on his son, full […]
