Premier League Footballer of the Week, Gameweek 27

Everton for the World Cup, Adam Johnson for England and Mud. How can you not love this game, this league, the drama, the terrible state of the DW in Wigan? Forget that last one. Gameweek 27 saw Everton continue their fantastic league form as they beat Manchester United emphatically at home […]

Man City Got The Right Man With Adam Johnson Signing

If you hadn’t been paying attention to Middlesbrough last season or the first half of the current campaign in the Championship – and let’s face it – most people don’t pay much attention to Middlesbrough – you won’t have seen how good Adam Johnson is. A graduate of Middlesbrough’s fantastic […]

Richard Dunne Shows Manchester City What They Need

During the takeover of Manchester City last summer, City’s Chief Executive, Gary Cook made several rather tasteless comments but one stood out above all the others for me. During an interview with the Daily Telegraph, Cook was outlining City’s plan for world domination. As Wednesday’s defeat at Tottenham showed, sometimes […]

Nerves Will Destroy Stewart Downings England Career

Why can’t Stewart Downing show us the form that makes him such a sought after player when he pulls on the England shirt? There is no doubting that at Premier League level, Downing is one of the most dangerous and creative players in the country but after Saturdays performance against […]

Middlesbrough Are In Freefall

Why can everyone else see Middlesbrough’s problems but Steve Gibson?

Friday Transfer Rumor Mill (6/27/08)

Mee-lan look set to make Emmanuel Adebayor their newest signing, sending Arsene Wenger scouring for replacements. The Boss may like the cut of Peter Crouch’s under-rated jib, but not for £15m. Expect Tottenham to outbid themselves by £3m on him, just to be safe. (Football 365) Arsene may actually have […]

What's Hot

Cristiano Ronaldo is determined to mask his decline

Earlier last week, Brazilian legend Ronaldinho left yet another club by mutual agreement. The story was like every other. After an initial bout of optimism, his time at the club (in this case, Fluminense) quickly turned tumultuous, and a split was in the best interest of both parties. It’s the […]

Review: Honigstein’s ‘Das Reboot’ is required reading for fans of German, US soccer

“Das Reebot,” a new book from Raphael Honingstein which hits book stores and online retailers on Tuesday, is a masterful look at how German soccer broke out of its conservative traditions to create a world champion.
