Umbro Hard At Work On New Hull City Third Shirt

Big Four Teams Are Playing Copycats With Premier League Results

Posted on by Christopher Harris

It used to be a lot easier. All top flight matches used to be played on a Saturday at 3pm GMT. There were no early kick-offs. No late kick-offs and, heaven forbid, no Sunday matches. Now, of course, everything has … Continue reading

Liverpool and Arsenal Are Flat-Track Bullies; Only In Reverse
