It’s always interesting when you view football games and the Ryder Cup is also on, you feel torn as to which sport you should be watching. But SKY/BT and the Premier League did offer up some tasty opposition to the golf on Saturday with the Merseyside derby followed by the North London equivalent. Although I […]

What’s The Mata With Juan?

When you sign for a new club for a fee of ¬£37.1m, then you’d probably expect to still be an automatic first choice starter nine months later.

Product Review: Campo Retro

CAMPO RETRO is a great design and manufacturer that excels in superb football retro style polo shirts. I have the Fiorentina Bernabeu Violet jersey.

Liverpool Need To Gel Quickly

I always said that Liverpool’s season was going to be tougher this time around. It always happens after a successful year. You become a bigger target for other clubs.

Why McGregor Should Be Scots Number One

As a nation, Scotland have a bit of an embarrassment of riches when it comes to the goalkeeping position. Manager Gordon Strachan has three top class keepers to choose from in; Allan McGregor, Craig Gordon or David Marshall.
