For Abject England, Expect More of the Same

  England fans have traditionally been guilty of the sin of not really looking.  Reading the English press, there seems a general sense of shock about how their team performed in their first game yesterday.  But to a neutral observer, the result, and England’s sorry, tired performance, was not really […]

Rio Ferdinand's Exit Doesn't Hinder England's Chances of Winning the World Cup (Welcome to the England Captaincy Steven Gerrard)

On a day where two of the Premier League’s brightest and most popular stars succumbed to various knacks and knocks and subsequently exit the World Cup, another of the league’s most popular athletes ascends into the captaincy of the England National team feeling strangely like some hand me down jacket worn by your older […]

Wayne Rooney Stars In TV Ad With James Corden

Manchester United and England legend Wayne Rooney stars in a new TV commercial which also features British actor and comedian James Corden. In the advert, Corden pretends to be a TV director shooting Rooney as he scores a winning goal in the World Cup. Except that things don’t go according […]

Wayne's World: The Importance of Rooney

It seems every World Cup, England puts together a solid team, that somehow depends upon the brilliance of a single man, who can take the merely good players around him, and make them into world beaters. In years past it was Beckham, and this year it’s Wayne Rooney. Ask the […]

England vs USA, Is It Just Another Game?

Ever since the World Cup draw was made back in December, all eyes in the United States have been on the first game in Group C. The match against England is widely anticipated in America, but here it’s just another group game. There’s not the same level of excitement, sure […]

The England Outsiders #5. The Strikers

2006 was a disaster for England’s much vaunted strikers in so many ways it was depressing. It was clearly Sven Goran-Eriksson’s nadir as the England supremo as his eccentric choices left England woefully short of options. Michael Owen was so off the pace as to be redundant and his World […]

A Little Perspective for Manchester United Supporters

Manchester United were eliminated from the most coveted Cup competition in the world on Wednesday night in heartbreaking fashion. Having won their home leg 3-2 and finishing off the tie with a level aggregate score of 4-4, United were put to the sword by the dreaded away goals rule. Such […]

Berbatov Critics Proven Right

Last week in the build-up to the English Premier League’s most anticipated match of the season, there were many in the press and blogosphere that openly questioned Dimitar Berbatov’s ability to replace Wayne Rooney as an effective lone striker. I, myself, wrote an article arguing that Rooney’s ankle injury made […]

Wayne Rooney's Injury Makes it Chelsea's Title to Lose

Without even kicking a ball, Chelsea were given a gift this week.  One roll of Wayne Rooney’s ankle has altered the dynamic of the entire 2009-10 EPL campaign, and has handed Carlo Ancelotti more than just a lifeline, but possibly the title itself.  While the Italian would never admit that […]

Wayne Rooney's Injury Adds to Manchester United's Insult

Football truly is a game like no other where minutes can feel like hours and hours can sometimes feel like days. As quickly and powerfully as the ball can be slammed into the net, it’s equally as quick that a team’s fortune or good form can disintegrate. American Baseball is described as a “game of […]

Everton Continue To Be Overlooked

You’ve got to feel for David Moyes and the never ending injury situation at Goodison Park. Since they finished fourth in 2005, it seems every season starts in December due to the injury affliction that seemingly curses the Toffees. Thankfully, we’re past the days when teams blamed gypsy curses for […]
