    England Not the Big Attraction?

    Gambling News

    Poor old skybet Lightning struck twice in successive days for one lucky punter as he netted himself more that £500,000 with two football accumulator bets with betting firm Sky Bet. Incredibly, the gambler wagered only £1,050 overall but was in luck as each of his ten teams delivered in the two...

    Safe Terracing

    Just been reading an article by Matt Slater on the BBC website on falling season ticket sales in the Premier League and he made comment about how it compares against the Bundesliga - "...

    Who Should Replace Rafa?

    It's 6pm on Sunday evening in Merseyside. The last supporter trudges out of the Anfield turnstiles, his head hung low. Red scarves are left strewn amongst the litter in the aisles of the Kop. Somewhere outside you can hear the gleeful chorus of 'Glory, Glory Man United'. Liverpool have been...

    Rafa's Tactics Secure Win

    The journey back from London to Liverpool is a long one and, if any of the American contingent from Anfield bothered to make it, you rather hope that someone sat next to them on the bus and told them exactly why they were returning with three points. This victory wasn't due to their only notable...

    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...

    Rafa Benitez

    In an ideal world, Rafa Benitez would have flown back to England with the rest of us on Monday, tingling with excitement after watching one of the finest international tournaments in decades and clutching a notepad full of potential summer signings.

    Ribery Set To Shine

    With Euro 2008 now less than 100 days away and UEFA showing no signs of inexplicably kicking anyone out of the tournament to make room for England, it’s time for acceptance. Naturally, this acceptance will come easier to you than it will to me, which is why I decided to get the heads-up on a few...

    Today's Fiver

    A BENT REFEREE AND A FAIR COP Granny Fiver always used to say: "Crime doesn't pay". As Granny had a battering ram in one hand and enough diamonds to pebbledash the new Wembley in the other, the Fiver resolved merely to never get caught. Were we to attempt to fix a match, for instance, we'd go...
