Portsmouth’s Fans Don’t Deserve Being Messed Around

Ah, isn’t buying a football club the easiest thing in the world. Look how quickly Abramovich bought Chelsea, the Glazers bought Manchester United and the Abu Dhabi group picked up City. Compared to the protracted nature of the proposed takeover of Portsmouth, even buying Newcastle United may be easier. When […]

Is Manchester City Really Better Off with New Owners?

So, the shortish reign of Thaksin Shinawatra has finally come to an end. None too soon perhaps for Man City fans settling down to some Pepto Bismol after that ridiculous and probably unnecessary roller-coaster ride.    While stern looking Premier League officials waxed on about ‘fit and proper persons,’ it was […]

Middle East Company Buys Manchester City

Manchester City officials have confirmed that a Middle East company is in the process of taking over the club from Thai owner Thaksin Shinawatra. A memorandum of understanding (i.e. a statement of intent) has been signed between between the Abu Dhabi United Group (ADUG) and Manchester City Football Club Limited. […]

Are Manchester City About To Go Into Meltdown?

When the Vedran Corluka story broke on Thursday, it seemed nothing more than transfer speculation hitting the news wires, stoked by the usual rumour mongers and agents, desperately trying to earn a bit of corn for themselves, pushing a transfer through. Manchester City denied it, Tottenham didn’t mention it and […]

Sven to be sacked

As I wrote previously, it looks like Manchester City are going to sack Sven-Goran Eriksson after just one season in charge. In that article, I outlined my reasoning for stating that this was a bad move.

Sven for the sack?

Just what the English Premier League needs, another ill-informed, tinkering owner. I’m certain that Manchester City’s billionaire owner Thaksin Shinawatra is a reasonably intelligent man. You don’t get to be a billionaire without a little nous. However, like many other rich sports franchise owners, he does not appear to be […]

Manchester United: Summer Transfer Targets

With the sale of Cristiano Ronaldo adding £80 million to Sir Alex Ferguson’s usual £25-30 million yearly budget. A summer spending spree is surely on the cards. Looking at the side, it would appear to me a winger and some quality in centre midfield are needed, with possibly, a striker […]

Why Serie A Is Back Among The Best European Leagues

There can’t be many British die-hard fans who don’t fondly recall the halcyon days of 90’s Italian football. Gazzetta Football Italia, hosted by the always affable James Richardson and legendary Kenneth Wolstenholme, would dominate early Saturdays and drowsy Sundays as Serie A, with its brand of tactical superiority over the pre-money soaked Premiership and exotic […]

FOX and Bundesliga dealt blow as Leverkusen-Munich ratings fail to beat EPL on NBC

The overnight TV ratings for Saturday’s dueling broadcasts between Leverkusen-Bayern Munich on FOX and Southampton-West Ham on NBC are in, and the Bundesliga/FOX duo have been dealt a crushing blow as their game failed to beat NBC’s coverage of the Premier League. NBC delivered an overnight rating of 0.56 compared to FOX’s […]
