The England Outsiders #5. The Strikers

Posted on by Paul Bestall

The PFA Player Of The Year Shortlists Are A Joke

Posted on by Paul Bestall

If today’s PFA Player of the Year shortlist shows us anything, announcing the player of the year with almost 6 weeks of the season left looks a stupid decision. With only Steven Gerrard not from Manchester United on the six … Continue reading

Stephen Ireland Deserves The Young Player Of The Year Award
