Man United Beginning To Roar But Still Need More Leaders At The Back

Manchester United have started to impress under Louis van Gaal’s guardianship. They are currently in fine form, winning seven out of their last nine outings. Going forward with the likes of Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie, Radamel Falcao and Angel Di Maria, United look capable of scoring against any side in the Premier League. So […]

Why It’s Great To See Naismith Sticking With The Toffees

  For so many reasons it was fantastic to see Steven Naismith pen a three year extension to his Everton deal this week. Firstly, it’s great to see his hard-work and endeavour being rewarded. His form in 2014 has been fantastic. So far this term, he has become a first team regular (almost the first […]

Gattuso Link With Rangers Job Makes No Sense

As Rangers announced to the stock exchange that manager Ally McCoist has indeed resigned, that he was serving his twelve month notice period and that the club were looking for an ‘amicable solution’, reports surfaced linking the club with replacements. One man was mentioned more than once and that was Rino Gattuso. Now before Rino […]

Celtic Need To Tie Down Guidetti And Forget Odegaard for Now

I first noticed John Guidetti back in 2011 when he was at Feyenoord on loan, they were in Breda taking on NAC. He was a substitute and changed things when he came on, he actually turned the game around. That year in Holland saw Guidetti score twenty goals in twenty-three Eredivisie appearances. Unfortunately things haven’t […]

Disappointing BT Sport Entertain Disrespectful, Arrogant Bully Stan Collymore

Stanley Collymore, where do you start with a man like this? A footballer who didn’t quite hit the peak his ability suggested he should reach? A man caught up in a seedy dogging scandal? A human being that has allegedly made two threats on lives of two ex partners? A bully who when arguing with […]

Sad Day For Rangers As McCoist Offers Resignation

Now as a football manager, Ally McCoist isn’t the best. He has achieved certain targets, which were expected of him. His signing policy was pretty poor, especially when compared to his recent predecessors. His ideas on tactics and formations have been weak and rigid. Some of the performances from his side were turgid to watch […]

Why PSG Should Keep Zlatan!

French football writer Andrew Gibney is my best friend in the football writing world. The good sign for every lasting friendship is that you can agree and disagree with everything the other person says, yet you still remain best of chums. Andrew is fantastic and we’ve had so many football discussions that we always seem […]

Book Review: From The Back Page To The Front Room

From The Back Page To The Front Room by Roger Domeneghetti (@WAATG) It’s funny how just an idea for a book can make you think differently. In this one, Roger Domeneghetti looks at how the media and football are now almost always intertwined and linked and how they can both dominateĀ our lives. We all remember […]

Mourinho Makes A Few Uncharacteristic Mistakes That Derail Chelsea

So it won’t be an invincible season for Chelsea this time around after all. The slump to Newcastle United showed others in the Premier League that they can be beaten after all. But for me, Jose Mourinho has helped bring on the defeat with a few mistakes. Instead of keeping spirits high at Stamford Bridge […]

Scottish Media Need To Back Budge Not Hinder Her

It’s funny how the Scottish media can get obsessed about Scottish footballs in-fighting and financial troubles. Yet they seem to overlook Scottish football’s social issues in any great detail. This week Hearts owner Ann Budge once again made a very good and detailed statement, you can view it HERE. The statement basically highlights the social […]
