A Scotland Squad Full Of Uncapped Talent

Obviously I couldn’t pick a Scotland squad for this years World Cup as we didn’t qualify (Yip we were unlucky, honest!). So I’ve decided to pick a Scots squad full of uncapped players. I love the B team idea and think the home nations should resurrect that idea. So this is kind of like a […]

Why The Spectre Of Ferguson Isn’t An Issue At Man United

For years we wondered what would happen to Manchester United if/when Sir Alex Ferguson decided to retire. Now that It was always going to take time for things to settle down, it looks like it needs Fergie time. I have said in previous posts that Fergie has to accept some of the blame for the […]

Di Canio The Great Storyteller

I remember the 1996-97 Scottish Premier League very well. Rangers clinched nine in a row and for the first time in that era Celtic looked like real title contenders.

Zoopla Gain Ultimate WBA Exposure Due To Anelka Controversy

Let me start off by saying I will not go into any detail about the ‘Quenelle’. I don’t have a great idea about its origins or its meaning. I will let The FA  judge that and whether Nicolas Anelka meant any offence by recreating the gesture. Also may I point out for all those newspapers […]

Why MLS = A Retirement Home

  A few football hacks have been criticised on Twitter for suggesting that ‘Major League Soccer’ is nothing more than a retirement league. People have often answered back with the line ‘Have you even watched the league?’. Well let me tell you, I have watched the league and it is a retirement home for some […]

Why The FA Will Let Hull Turn Into The Tigers

Back in 1878, Newton Heath LYR Football Club were formed. In 1892 they took their place in the football league, in Division One no less.
