Sunderland Keep Slipping Under Sbragia

When Roy Keane walked out of the Stadium of Light back in December, they had 15 points from 15 games. He’d become exasperated as his expensively recruited side simply hadn’t gelled as quickly as he’d hoped and felt he couldn’t inspire them from the insipid performances they’d shown, especially in […]

The “Power Of Scotland”

Reaching the FA Cup final was a long overdue reward for Everton manager David Moyes.  As the Premierships’ third longest serving manager, Moyes has brought consistent performances for a low budget club.  It is worth considering that at Everton he has been subject to budgetary constraints that perhaps much of […]
