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 […]

Where Did It All Go Wrong For Hull City?

When a team only wins 2 games out of 18, you’d fully expect them to be propping up the Premiership table, already planning for life in the Championship the following season. Thankfully for Hull City, their fantastic start to the season has kept them out of the bottom 3, hanging […]

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.

Whilst his support for Southgate is edifying, it worries me that the Chairman seems so detached from the situation Boro are in by continuing to back Southgate over the evidence of results, performances and the fans. Yet by backing Southgate, […]
