Who is Your Premier League Cult Hero?

The cult hero, every club has them. They are not always the best player to turn out for your team, indeed sometimes they can be among the worst. But they had that little something that meant they were held in the highest regard by the fans. Sometimes there is a […]

Bullard’s Resurgence Can Lift Hull City

Things are very rarely simple at the K.C. Stadium, not while Phil Brown is there. Back in January, he raised eyebrows when he paid £5 million for the effervescent Fulham midfielder Jimmy Bullard. Not that there is any doubting the quality that Bullard offers, but that a player who had […]

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 […]

Fulham Continue To Progress Under Hodgson

Why doesn’t Roy Hodgson get the credit he deserves in the United Kingdom? As I’ve mentioned before, In Scandinavia and Italy, he’s held in high regard, in  Britain people point to his sacking at Blackburn Rovers back in1997. With 33 points gained so far this season, Fulham are one win […]

Hull City To Go Down?

Can anyone remember the last time Hull City won a Premier League game? December 6th at home to Middlesbrough was the last time. Since then, they have been very much in freefall.  When Hull first arrived in the Premiership, they were tipped to go straight back down but decided to […]

Drogba Wants to Stay at Chelsea

Sorry Drogba, but I have to call BS on this one. After spending this season doing more sulking than any professional football player should be allowed to do by law, and in a week where Marseille’s president has said he wants Drogba back, Didier Drogba has attempted to shut people […]

Can Eduardo Get Past an Apology

Now that Eduardo is back, I was expecting this one. Last year when the injury happened, we got headlines galore about no apology being made. Tonight, that same headline is back. Of course there is two sides to every story, and Martin Taylor certainly has his. He claims to have […]

England Are In A No-Win Situation Against Andorra

Only a few days remain before England plays their first 2010 World Cup qualifying match against Andorra at the Estadio Olímpico de Montjuïc in Barcelona, Spain. No matter what England does, they cannot win. England’s 2007 match against Andorra continues to be a dark cloud that hangs over the heads […]

Hodgson Looks To Build On The Great Escape

Roy Hodgson is one of the great unsung English managers of the last 30 years and I’m a big fan of England’s most underrated manager. A polite, erudite professor of the game and an intelligent, well spoken man, he’s simply never received the recognition his career and achievements deserve in England due to the majority […]

Fulham FC sprang back to life on Sunday, with a startling 1-0 victory over European-bound Everton. The win, Fulham’s fourth of the season, places gives them 23 pts – an effective four points away from safety. However, Odds and Sods will now make a bold prediction.  Fulham will not be […]

Premier League Odds and Sods 4 Feb 2008

After this weekend a Google search for “Sven” and “Up the Arse” won’t lead you astray as Arsenal defeated Manchester City 3-1 away from home to move to the top of the table. Adebayor dropped a deuce, scoring in his eighth straight match. Eduardo also controlled a ball magnificently with […]

After Johan Cruyff managed what was probably his last game for Catalonia in a friendly yesterday, the Dutch legend was asked whether former Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola  could be next in line for the Catalonia job. In a surprising answer, Cruyff revealed, “Pep now looks set to coach in England, […]

West Ham Falters to Clinical Finishing from Chelsea

If you didn’t have a chance to watch tonight’s 4-1 win by Chelsea at West Ham’s Boleyn Ground, you may consider the result as another indication of Chelsea’s superiority and West Ham’s decline. Sure, the Blues were incredible tonight, but the scoreline didn’t accurately portray West Ham’s efforts, especially in […]
