Steve Bruce favorite to become next Ireland manager

Steve Bruce, the former manager of Newcastle, is now the frontrunner to lead the Irish national team. Ireland has won just one of its five qualifying games so far.

Read Our Progress Report on Hull City's Performances for October-November

What did you get right and wrong in your August-September progress report? At the beginning of the season I said that Hull City had strength in depth, something that came in handy in recent weeks. I also mentioned that Hull’s form would improve but it hasn’t, they have 11 points from 11 games, in my […]

Idiotic Promise May Cause Future Trouble

With Fabio Capello insisting that he won’t manage England past the 2012 European Championships, names are already been branded about as a possible successor to the Italian. But with the FA proudly boasting that their next manager will be English there is hardly a wealth of managers to choose from. Early contenders are Harry Redknapp, […]

Pressure Is On Sunderland's New Star

Sunderland’s record signing Asamoah Gyan has admitted he faces a stern task to justify his £13million transfer fee.

Where Now For Steve Bruce And Sunderland?

14 games without a Premiership win would be worrying for several sides, but when you've spent the best part of £50 million to improve the team, 4 months without a win is disastrous. When Bruce took the reigns at the Stadium of Light in the summer, the club had survived a dreadful season which had […]

Can Wigan Afford To Lose Steve Bruce?

When I heard that Steve Bruce was being lined up as the replacement for Ricky Sbragia, a few alarm bells rang in my head. Bruce, being a Newcastle United fan surely couldn't be Ellis Short and Niall Quinn's choice as the new Sunderland manager could he? Would Bruce seriously consider near enough ruling himself out […]

Wigan Pass On Amr Zaki

I admit it. I was fully dazzled by Amr Zaki when he first came to play in England. The stunning goals came so quickly. And they were gorgeous. Wigan Athletic's unknown striker just needed half a second on the ball to make miracles happen and it seemed like the goals were going to stream from […]

Steve Bruce Is Right To Come Clean Over Zaki

Why don't more managers come clean in the press about disruptive or unprofessional players? It seems that more and more in these sanitised and sponsorship heavy times that too many people keep quiet about the players who are taking the Michael.

Ronaldo v Taylor and the LMA Makes Recommendations About Refs

So the big story that will be blown out of proportion from United's 2-1 victory over Newcastle is the war of words at halftime between Cristiano Ronaldo and Stephen Taylor. Nothing too serious, Ronaldo calling Taylor a rubbish footballer and Taylor in grand reply going 'well you are ugly' like some high school girl would […]

Rafa's Ranting Is Doing Liverpool No Favors

The sooner Rafa Benitez keeps his mouth shut about how teams are playing against Liverpool, even in off handed ways, and focuses on getting your team back on the winning path; the better off you will be. The comments made after Liverpool's 1-1 draw at the JJB against Wigan in my mind read like a […]

Why Wigan will avoid relegation under Steve Bruce

For a town more accustomed to the wing exploits of Martin Offiah, Wigan’s been treated to some great football in the last few years. Since promotion to the top flight in 2005 Wigan Athletic have battled through tough matches, pie jokes and countless accusations of clogging to establish themselves as a Premier League club – […]

Steve Bruce Deserves Praise For Wigan Athletic Turnaround

The cold hard truth is that no one cares about Wigan Athletic. I've written about them in the past but even their own supporters aren't bothered to participate in the discussion. Out of the 20 teams in the Premier League, Wigan is the most underreported side. Unless, that is, there's controversy or a outspoken comment […]
