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. He’d become exasperated as his expensively recruited side simply hadn’t gelled as quickly as he’d hoped and felt he couldn’t inspire them from the insipid performances they’d shown, especially in […]

Pundits Are Killing The Premier League For Me

 Am I the only person who is sick to death of having the league table flashed up at every opportunity? Am I the only person sick to death of hearing ‘If Liverpool win today they will go back above United’ (despite the fact they will have played more games)?  And last but […]

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 […]

Kevin Nolan Should Be Suspended Further

So Kevin Nolan will now face a three match ban for violent conduct, after his dreadful tackle on Victor Anichebe in today’s match, but I don’t think it’s sufficient punishment for such a bad challenge. It’s about time that the Premier League and the F.A. clamped down on such challenges […]

The Joe Kinnear Video That Upset Charles N’Zogbia

Liverpool’s Title Chances On The Brink

Three weeks is a long time in football and Liverpool must be wondering why there season is beginning to splutter just when they needed to kick on.

The 2008/2009 Premier League season will go down as one of the most bizarre in terms of football kits. There’s West Bromwich Albion who are without a shirt sponsor for the entire season. Then there was West Ham United and the covering up of sponsor name XL Travel with player’s […]

Who Will Move Premiership Clubs In January?

  A little under 32 hours remain until the transfer window finally opens once again in World Football and the merry go round of mad money begins once again. I’ve seen several people claim that due to the economic climate, it’s probably going to be a quiet window with little […]
