How will Rangers spend their summer?
12:00 Friday 14th June 2019

Throughout Scottish football history, the domestic scene has largely been dominated by Glasgow sides Rangers and Celtic. For years, the pair would take turns in winning the division while every other side just watched on in awe... That…

Lack Of Stellar Signings Means David Moyes' Hard Work Starts Now
11:22 Wednesday 4th September 2013

If David Moyes was ever under any illusion as to how big the job of replacing Sir Alex was then he is soon going to realise it just got a lot harder. This transfer window has been a disaster for Manchester United and has left the supporters…

Yohan Cabaye – Everyone Knows his Name
22:47 Sunday 29th April 2012

If we're all brutally honest, in June of last year when Yohan Cabaye joined Newcastle from Lille, how many of us actually did know his name? If I'm honest, I didn't; I knew of the success of Lille over recent seasons but hadn't really studied…

Does English Football Lack The Deep-Lying Playmaker?
21:29 Wednesday 28th March 2012

Watching Juventus play, it can be easy to compare their players to those in England who have similar playing styles. There are plenty of similar or lesser quality, who play like Mirko Vucinic, Arturo Vidal and even Alessandro Del Piero. However,…

Thanks For The Memories Mick McCarthy
14:49 Tuesday 14th February 2012

Monday 13th February will go down in history at Molineux as the day the curtain came down on Mick McCarthy and his five-and-a-half year stint in the Wolves hot seat. It has filled me with pride that even some of McCarthy's staunchest detractors…

Priceless Points, Possession And Even Plaudits From Pundits.
14:07 Sunday 12th February 2012

I'm beginning to understand how difficult it must be to work on the sports desk at the Manchester Evening News. Most weeks are the same. The team turns up, the team dominates the opposition, the team scores more goals than the opposition, the…

On The Spot: Premier League Penalty Stats
20:56 Wednesday 8th February 2012

Penalties have always been an issue in football, with so many given and so many not, so many scored and so many missed. Penalties are, for many the scourge of the game, with fans all having their own points of view of what should be and what…

Stoke City 1-2 West Bromwich Albion (West Bromwich Albion Fan's Perspective)
21:47 Sunday 22nd January 2012

To be perfectly honest with you, when we play Stoke, we know nine times out of ten that we will not get anything off them. We might have got the occasional point here and there, but a win? Well perhaps that might be a bit too much; after all…

Match Report: QPR 3 Wigan 1 (QPR Fan's Perspective)
14:27 Sunday 22nd January 2012

They say 'One man's misfortune is another man's gain'. In the case of Akos Buzsaky, he has gained from the misfortune of two men. His QPR career was seemingly over and it was looking very likely that January would see him move on to pastures…

Sprinkle some more fairy dust - the FA Cup needs it.
21:50 Monday 9th January 2012

At the moment, it's the evening of the big FA Cup 3rd Round Saturday. The sad thing is I've watched more Celebrity Big Brother than football today, on account of both Cup games being on ESPN. The sadder thing is that I've been more interested,…

Spurs, Top Four Hopefuls or Title Contenders?
23:14 Wednesday 4th January 2012

Looking forward to the premiership season back in August, I really didn't have much hope for Spurs breaking into the top four and ultimately landing a Champions League spot. I don't think many did including a certain Luka Modric, who was almost…

Steven Gerrard endured a frustrating 2011. A groin injury in March prematurely ended the Liverpool skipper's season , with Liverpool's medical staff deciding to keep him out of action until the start of the current campaign. His return was,…

Match Report Norwich 1 Fulham 1 (Norwich Fan's Perspective)
20:12 Sunday 1st January 2012

Sometimes I forget how much of a resilient and purposeful team we truly are. My head began to drop as we went in to 80mins+. I could see that we were pressing but I didn't think the equalizer would come. I'd forgotten how many times we've done…

For the first time since 1977, West Bromwich Albion travelled back from Newcastle with a win and head into the Christmas break sitting comfortably in 10th place with 21 points following back-to-back away wins. In an interesting statistic, the…

Match Report: Everton 1-1 Norwich (A Norwich Fan's Perspective)
13:47 Sunday 18th December 2011

We seem to enjoy a trip to Merseyside. It's known for having two top Premiership sides and yet we have brought two points back to Norfolk with us this season. That's two more than people expected us to take.Everton started and indeed carried…
