Who Will Relegation Hit The Hardest?

With West Bromwich Albion’s fate sealed last week we can now prepare ourselves for a dramatic conclusion to the Premier League season on Sunday. The neutral (including yours truly) will relish it and will want to see as many twists and turns as possible. Anyone supporters involved will have struggled to sleep for a […]

What Next For Michael Owen?

With his international career apparently over and his club’s Premier League status under major threat it begs the question, ‘What will happen to Micheal Owen’? On 30 June 1998, 18 year-old Michael Owen’s name resonated around the football world after scoring THAT goal for England against Argentina. Michael James Owen had made his […]

Newcastle United Need a Miracle to Stay in the EPL

After another defeat, Newcastle United look destined for the Championship. Alan Shearer’s men have three games to save their season, but it appears too little too late, and although it is not mathematically certain they will go down, performances on and off the pitch have made it clear they are […]

Who Will Go Down?

With West Brom’s unfortunate defeat at White Hart Lane yesterday, the Baggies are all but relegated with 28 points from 35 games leaving them 6 points behind Hull City – with the Yorkshiremen having a game in hand. Barring a miracle, Tony Mowbray’s outfit will be playing Championship football next season, […]

Who Would You Rather See Relegated: Tottenham or Newcastle?

It’s two-thirds of the way through the season, and purported big clubs Newcastle and Tottenham remain entrenched in the relegation rumble. Newcastle sputtered amid boardroom confusion, after the departure of manager Kevin Keegan.  Tottenham played woefully under Juande Ramos and their squad has flat-lined after an early revival from Harry […]

Fox Soccer Snooze Day

Number of days since an English football club scored a goal during Fox Soccer Channel’s live soccer coverage on Saturdays: 14. We last saw a goal scored by an English team on Fox Soccer Channel on Saturday, November 15 when Nicolas Anelka knocked the final goal in for Chelsea against […]

Strange Day In The Premier League

What a strange day it was in the Premier League on Saturday. Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United all failed to score. Aston Villa came within a whisker of beating Man United, which would have pushed them into third place. And Arsenal crumbled against Manchester City. In the closest Premier League […]

Here’s a bit of fun for a Saturday morning. The Mackem Mover appeared on Soccer AM this morning and showed off his dance moves (see video below). The bloke named Steve first came to fame when TV cameras caught him dancing in the crowd during half-time against Newcastle United (watch […]
