Leeds Need To Learn Lessons From Revie’s Golden Years At Elland Road

Love them or hate them, Leeds United are a club entrenched in the folklore of English football. The Whites did not have a distinguished start to life in the football league, and it took 40 years for them to make an impact with the biggest clubs in the game. Don Revie’s takeover as the manager […]

Discussing The Failings Of Scotland

  My views on Scotland’s woeful performances this week.

Man United: Three Players Van Gaal Should have Kept

It’s fair to say that Louis van Gaal had a bit of a scattergun approach when it came to transfers during his stint in charge of Manchester United.  In total he brought in sixteen new signings and released or sold forty players in his two seasons at the helm.  Some of the players that left […]

Negativity Again Blights Scotland’s World Cup Chances

I stated earlier in the week that Gordon Strachan was wrong to state that Scotland’s game against Lithuania wasn’t a ‘must win’ fixture. Last night the Tartan Army support watched their team play without much in the way of urgency and any real cutting edge. The Scotland team started the game like it wasn’t a […]

Will Celtic’s Moussa Dembele Become A £20m Man?

As each week passes the paltry £500k compensation fee looks to be a huge bargain for the Scottish champions. In his first seventeen appearances for the Hoops, Dembele has already got a twelve […]

Can Bob Bradley Succeed At Swansea?

When Bob Bradley succeeded Francesco Guidolin as Swansea City boss last week initially it looked like a job for the boys. The Swans have new American owners and now within a few months they’ve brought in an American head-coach. A man who hasn’t managed a club in one of Europe’s top five ranked leagues. But I […]

Why Scotland Need To Beat Lithuania

Let me take you back to the summer of 1998, the tenth of June to be precise. It was the opening day of the World Cup in France. Scotland walked out alongside 94′ champs Brazil, the sun was shining and the fans were singing. I had managed to dog (skip) school and eagerly awaited the […]

Liverpool Potential Tile Challengers

Since Jurgen Klopp arrived as Liverpool manager last season, he’s managed to gain impressive wins against the better sides in the Premier League. That’s once again been highlighted this term as they’ve beaten both Arsenal and Chelsea away from home. Plus the Reds have also recorded a 4-1 home victory over last seasons league champions Leicester City. […]
