Ricardo Goulart: Brazil's Manchurian Candidate
09:30 Sunday 20th August 2017

When Neymar left Barcelona, Paulinho was given a second lease on life. Maybe we should be asking why Ricardo Goulart wasn't offered a first. As natural resources go, soy beans, iron ore, and crude oil are not very romantic. That said, you'd…

18:00 Thursday 10th August 2017

Liverpool fans. You're never far away from one. They never seem to walk alone and pop up all across the world. If they put a series of wins together, Twitter goes mad as the hype train hits the track again. Yet what do they really think ahead…

2017-18 Premier League Preview, pt 3: The Other Guys
09:00 Wednesday 9th August 2017

I'm both a Premier League junkie and film buff. As a writer, I view that as an opportunity to use movies as metaphors for this three-part Premier League preview. As a reader, at least you don't have to pay too much for the popcorn. You can…
