What To Do With Ched Evans

Now I am not going to touch the trial and the speculation that inevitably goes with it. Welsh forward¬†Ched Evans was found guilty of rape in 2012 and was jailed for five years. He has now served half of that sentence, due to British law he can now be released and it looks likely he […]

Can Blind Really Be The New Keane At Man Utd?

Quite a bit has been mentioned about Roy Keane in the past week. One story hasn’t actually came from the Irishman himself. A few pundits and fans have insinuated that Manchester United new-boy Daley Blind could be the new or next Roy Keane. Now I hate such comparisons. I always prefer letting players speak for […]

Credit Should Be Given To Tired Sterling

When I first read about Raheem Sterling asking for a break during the international fixtures, I thought to myself ‘what a prima-donna’. Imagine a nineteen year old boy moaning about playing too much professional football! But then I took a step back and I applaud the decision. Most kids of nineteen have no idea what […]

Lennon To Bolton Confuses Me!

In the summer Neil Lennon left Celtic, feeling he had taken the club as far as he could. Getting away from the Glasgow fish bowl probably helped too. Since his departure from Celtic Park, Lennon made a few comments relating to the Glasgow sides lack of spending and willingness to get things done in a […]

Strachan Has Scotland Purring Again!

When Gordon Strachan was announced as the new Scotland boss, the fifty-seven year old banged on about finding a system that suited his players and not force his squad into a style. Well fast forward twenty-one months and you can totally understand why it was so important for Strachan to find that system. It helps […]

Why I don’t Fully Support The Rooney Rule

Let me start by stating I am not totally against ‘the Rooney rule‘ where black or ethnic minority coaches should be given a chance to interview for the coach/managers position at every football club that has a vacancy. But I do have a few misgivings. I’m not a huge fan of positive discrimination. Where does […]

Celtic’s Problems Run Deeper Than Just Deila

  Reaction from certain Celtic fans to the slow start of new coach Ronny Deila’s tenure at Parkhead has been pretty predictable. Hordes of supporters have been on social media and radio phone-ins stating: ‘He’s too inexperienced‘, ‘He doesn’t have the dressing room on his side’ and ‘We need someone Celtic minded‘. The first two […]

David De Gea!!! The Man That Might Get Man Utd Back Into Top Four

As a goalkeeper, you sometimes don’t get the credit you deserve. The creative stars and the goalscorers usually get all the acclaim. But that can’t be said of Manchester United’s David de Gea last weekend. The Spaniard was terrific against Everton and made some world class saves at the end of the game to deny […]

Steven Fletcher Needs To Keep Up The Momentum

It looked as though the weight of the world had been lifted off of Steven Fletcher’s shoulders when he nodded home a Jordi Gomez cross on the twenty-third minute mark against Stoke City this past Saturday. That was the Scotsman’s first strike this calendar year and it ended the strikers personal thirteen game goal drought! […]

Chelsea Turn Back Time In This Title Race

This weekend seemed to take us back in time. Goals from Papiss Cisse, Nikica Jelavic and Steven Fletcher made us think we were back in 2012. Manchester United are once again in the ‘Top Four’ and Newcastle United are facing the same relegation fight nightmare they had back in 2009. Chelsea’s start to the campaign […]
