    Top 10 games this season

    I thought Liverpool v Arsenal was more thrilling than the Chelsea v Liverpool game and would have like to have seen a certain Chelsea 1-1 Southend in there too... I shall dream on

    Striker Crisis For Capello

    England 4-0 Slovakia Heskey, 7 Rooney, 70, 90+2 Lampard, 82 Forget about the result. A 4-0 victory over a substandard Slovakia might look nice on the scoreboard, but it has no place in the bigger picture. Fabio Capello will be far more concerned by a dramatic injury crisis in his frontline...

    Villa Fans Need A Reality Check

    The Premier League table has an eerily familiar look, doesn't it? In amongst the excitement of Liverpool's emphatic victory at Old Trafford and the discovery of stardust in the boots of Andrey Arshavin, this was the weekend when Aston Villa finally dipped out of the top four. There can't be many...

    Long Way To Go

    There's a long way to go yet. After an almost flawless first year in charge, Fabio Capello was brought crashing down to earth in Seville by a breath-taking Spanish side who taught him a hard lesson in what it takes to win international honours. England kept pace with the European Champions for...

    England Expects - And That's No Bad Thing

    If his first year was all about getting back to basics, Fabio Capello's second will be spent rebuilding England's tattered reputation. European football fans still laugh at the 'superpower' nation that couldn't even qualify for Euro08, but they will laugh no longer if Spain are vanquished in...

    EPL Half-Term Reports Pt1

    As the halfway point of the Premier League season approaches, we sent Iain Macintosh to compile reports cards for all the movers and the shakers. Who's the most improved student? Who deserves a merit award? Who's so bad that they're in danger of being moved to remedial class? Find out here...

    Terry's Touch Of Class

    If there were any question marks still lingering over John Terry's suitability to captain England, they were blown away in Berlin with a moment of grace and humility that is all too rare in a game poisoned by money and egos. Terry could have explained away Germany's comical equaliser by blaming...

    Why England Bother

    If you happen to be in possession of a British passport and you're in Berlin tonight, it might be worth taking your football boots with you. Given the speed at which England's stars are dropping out of contention, you'll probably get a game. Frank Lampard, Wayne Rooney, Rio Ferdinand, Ashley...

    Barton Pushes His Luck

    Sorry chaps, forgot to upload this last night... Well, that didn't take long, did it? Just one week after his composed, match-winning performance against West Bromwich Albion, the halo above Joey Barton's head began to slip. Like all the best horror films, the metamorphosis from man to beast...

    Chelsea Dominant As Villa Crumble

    Crisis? What crisis? Beset by injuries, Chelsea saved their best performance of the season so far for the day when the smart money was on Aston Villa to end that long unbeaten home run of theirs. Luiz Felipe Scolari's walking wounded preserved their record in a magnificent first half before...

    Spurs Are Rubbish. Seriously.

    Martin Jol was sacked for less than this. With just one point from their opening four games, their worst start to a season since 1974, this new-look Tottenham Hotspur are rock bottom of the Premier League. Jol, meanwhile, is top of the German Bundesliga with his new club Hamburg. Ah, the irony...

    Aston Villa's English XI

    They could have a whole English side out there on the pitch now (and are only about 3 first teamers away from that). Taylor Shorey, Knight, Davies, Young (L) Milner, Reo-Coker, Sidwell, Barry Young (A), Agbonlahor Subs: Osbourne, Routledge, Gardner, Harewood If Fabio can't find a decent...

    English players so expensive

    Apologies if I'm being slow and everyone's already aware of this but surely the reason English players are so expensive is that the only clubs that they aspire to be at are Champions League clubs but the only place they are willing to play is in England which happens to be flushed with cash...
  19. Foreign Quotas...

    Personally, I'm all for this. If you examine the worlds most successful nation in international football, Brazil, in their national league they have a strict rule that each squad is only allowed 3 foreign players, and Spanish football sides playing in La Liga have enforced that only 3 Non-EU...
