It’s the week of the Cheltenham festival, so in order to celebrate, this edition of fantasy football tips will take on a slightly equine nature. Apologies in advance for the inevitably dodgy puns. I’ll try and ensure that there’s not too much horse play… Anyway, to business. Just like horse […]

The saying goes that ‘form is temporary but class is permanent’ and on many levels this holds true, however such a huge part of professional sport is the mental aspect of the game, which at the highest level can be just as, if not more important than the physical aspect. With just 8 or […]

The Club v Country Debate

He’s my hero of sorts, the integral piece of the attacking puzzle to my beloved Manchester United and my (adopted) country of England.

Jack Rodwell Puts Himself In Shop Window Again

If you can’t beat them, buy them. That has often been Manchester United’s strategy when the club has lost pivotal league games against smaller English clubs and/or have been embarrassed by Premier League players who display incredible raw skill. United has often gone on to purchase many of those footballers. […]

And despite being outplayed […]

Wayne Rooney’s Continued, Increased Role For Manchester United
