Why Jose Is Bluffing And Chelsea Need Drogba

“I have to say my club did a fantastic job, and not just because of what we bought, but because we did it in almost record time. The transfer market closes 31 August and we close our market on July 19. We finished the market today,” That was Jose Mourinho‘s declaration this weekend. Chelsea‘s transfer […]

SFA Forcing Fans Away From International Football With Expensive Prices

Within a few days the Scottish Football Association (SFA) announced their ticket prices for the up and coming Euro 2016 qualification matches, which includes Germany’s first competitive fixture as the holders of the World Cup. The ‘Tartan Army‘ had some good news. The […]

Newcastle United: I Just Can’t Figure Them Out

There’s a lot about Newcastle United that I like. Their history for one, I loved the Kevin Keegan era and the football they played. I also adore the fact that they always cherish and appreciate a good goalscoring number nine. Plus I have never met a ‘Toon Army’ fan that I’ve not liked. I also […]

Liverpool Should Swoop For Falcao

  With Luis Suarez now enjoying his bites to eat in Spain and Alexis Sanchez deciding the bright lights of London suited his needs more than a trip to England’s north west, Liverpool still need that major signing that will get their fans salivating and warn their rivals that they once again mean business next […]

Why We Should Have Football At The Commonwealth Games

The World Cup has now ended, what on earth can keep us amused between now and the start of the season (well its already started in some parts). Well if like me and you’re Glaswegian then you can’t help but notice that the Commonwealth Games starts in the dear green place next week. It’s all […]

Final Thoughts On World Cup 2014

Congratulations to Germany¬†for their fine World Cup win. All in all the best team/squad won and that should be celebrated. As should the feat of being the first European side to win in the Americas.

Rangers: The Saga That Never Ends

This Rangers versus the taxman saga seems to never go away. Yesterday an upper tier judge dismissed an appeal from ‘Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs’ (HMRC) against the ruling from the first-tier trial against the use of EBT’s from the old company that ran Rangers. We have no real victors in this case. It can […]

The End Of The Brazilian Dream

“I certainly didn’t envisage or want to write the following angry, sad and blunt blog post. I’m not entirely sure that everything has sunk in yet to be quite honest.” As a Scot, it always makes sense to pick a go to team when it comes to World Cups, especially in this era when Scotland […]

Cole Should Become A Serie A Sensation

Let me start off by stating I’m not a huge fan of Ashley Cole’s behaviour off the park or what I’ve read about it to be exact. But as a footballer I think he’s a terrific left-back and I really think he’ll do well at AS Roma next season. He might be thirty-three now but […]
