The Best Premier League Starting XI of 2010

Ah, it’s that time of the year again and I simply love it. No, not Christmas, but the end of the year lists that all end up being about the same everywhere you look. Seriously, I think every music magazine has awarded album of the year to Kanye West, but […]

Premier League Footballer of the Week, Gameweek 17

Gameweek 17 ended with Manchester United taking sole ownership of first place after they were able to overcome Arsenal at home, 1-0. It was a tight game that often lacked the quality needed to make it the weekend’s marquee match off paper, but it was a result the Reds will welcome. […]

UEFA to Fine Arsenal and Manchester United £5,000, Why Bother?

UEFA will fine both Arsenal and Manchester United £5,000 respectively for fan incidents during last years Champions League semifinals.  An Arsenal fan hit Nemanja Vidic with a plastic bottle.  A Manchester United supporter hurled a smoke bomb onto the pitch.    The actions were potentially serious.  The fines are not.

Chelsea Ruins Manchester City's Samba Party

In less than three weeks, my wife and I have a new arrival planned for our household: our first baby boy. So while my wife was enjoying her baby shower yesterday, I ended up watching our three other children. Needless to say, I didn’t get a chance to watch as […]

Blackburn v Burnley – Friends reunited?

Unless you are familiar with both towns it would be easy to confuse an image of  Burnley for its near neighbour Blackburn. Both share the marauding rows of tight Victorian terraced housing, offering a window to England’s past and evoking images of men in cloth caps and the bustling noise […]

Friday’s Bundesliga Review: Schalke Slam St. Pauli

Schalke finally played to their potential this afternoon, albeit against an out of form St. Pauli side. Just days after Felix Magath criticized summer signing and Spanish legend Raul for not being enough of a goal threat, he’s stepped up to the plate and delivered.
