Franck Sauzee – The Leith L├ęgende

Scottish football doesn’t often see top class talent arrive on its shores but when a player of that ilk does arrive they stand out like a sore thumb. When Franck Suazee arrived at Easter Road in February 1999. The veteran was no longer playing at his peak but he still played like a man against […]

Hidetoshi Nakata – The Formative Years

The Greater Tokyo region is massive and it has a population greater than 13 million people deep. It’s easy to get lost in such a dense area or to conform to the noisy reality that comes with living in such built up surroundings. But getting lost in the shuffle or conforming to everyday life has […]

Carlo Ancelotti Could Be Best Manager In Modern Era

People always have their favourites and football fans always love a good debate. Who is better Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo? When discussing this era’s best manager some will claim it’s Jurgen Klopp, others will be adamant it’s Pep Guardiola, Antonio Conte will have his backers, Zinedine Zidane will get a shout, Diego Simeone’s work […]

Postecoglou Brings Excitement Times Back To Celtic

It’s funny to look back and think Eddie Howe was the Celtic board’s number one choice to become their new manager last summer. A lot of time was wasted as The Hoops chased and ultimately failed to persuade the Englishman to move to Glasgow. Yet after that particular rebuff the club’s hierarchy quickly put their […]

Manchester United And The Summer of 2003

The summer of 2003 was a big one for transfer stories and Manchester United were caught up in the three biggest tales of that period. David Beckham had been a Red Devil his entire career at that point. Having been a success with the club’s youth team, Beckham would make his senior United debut in […]

Big Game Performer Scott Brown Never Changes

I remember talking about Scott Brown about twelve years ago and looking at his game. He was a midfielder who couldn’t really pass the ball, who couldn’t really run with the ball, wasn’t the master of a tackle nor was he going to score lots of goals. Now I think that review is somewhat over-exaggerated, […]
