Winners And Losers From The Scottish Transfer Window

  With few, if any, sides in a position to embark on an elaborate winter spending spree, success, or lack of it, in the Scottish Premiership should probably be judged on retention rather than acquisition. The January sales may appeal to many, with those south of the border seemingly unaffected by the global credit crunch. […]

Time For Goodison Turnaround?

  The situation at Goodison Park is not a full-blown crisis, at least not yet. It can’t be denied that a run of just one win in thirteen games in all competitions (and that came at home to QPR, who aren’t known for their quality on the road) represents something of a slump. But recent […]

Celtic Newboy Gary Mackay-Steven Needs To Look At Neil McCann As His Inspiration

Some players develop at different rates than others. It’s a plain and simple fact with footballers. Scottish stars can always have their heads turned by the bright lights and wads of cash offered to them by clubs in the English Premier League (EPL). Some like Andrew Robertson can take to it like a duck to […]

Costa Walking A Tightrope

Chelsea forward Diego Costa has been one of the buys of the season. His £32m move from Atletico Madrid always looked like a good bit of business by Jose Mourinho but the seventeen goals that he has scored in the Premier League already have shown just how shrewd the ‘Special One’ is. Whilst Manchester United […]

Forget All The Drama Diego Costa Is Dirty But Effective And Best EPL Striker

Wait are we all trying to suggest we didn’t know what kind of player Diego Costa was before he arrived in Britain? No, we all knew he was an aggressive warrior that would punish defenders all game with hard, robust challenges. He was always going to be walking on the wild-side. Against Liverpool last night […]

Of Course Sunday’s Game Is An Old Firm Fixture

  So unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few months, you’ll know Rangers and Celtic will face off on Sunday at Hampden. The papers and websites have been full of nothing else in Scotland. Now there is a debate raging on about this fixture; is it an Old Firm match or […]

Jordy Clasie Could Be Classy Buy For Southampton

I first became aware of Jordy Clasie in 2011 when I was in Holland taking in a match between NAC Breda and Feyenoord. I gave the midfielder a special mention in that report for his tenacious play. I also stated that his style reminded me of Rino Gattuso and every time I see him play […]

Animated Touchlines Don’t Really Matter

SKY’s ‘Sunday Supplement’ has become a parody of itself. Every week you’ll see the same old faces talking the same old shit. I tend to dip in and watch the odd fifteen minutes from time to time and watch journos discuss topics I’ve seen time and time before. Today the bit that I caught was […]

Looking Back At Romario!

  When Ronaldo (The Brazilian and real one) retired I wrote a blog waxing lyrical about how great ‘El Fenomeno’ was. For me, he’s still the greatest player I’ve seen. His explosiveness and power were extraordinary, as were his goals and the amount he scored. But I am a 1984 baby. My first World Cup […]

Why La Liga Still Attracts The World’s Best Players

People constantly debate which league is better. La Liga, The English Premier League, Serie A or the Bundesliga? Well its simple it’s La Liga. Why? Because the leagues biggest two sides in Spain attract the world’s best players like Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Neymar. Before them they had the likes of Ronaldo, […]
