    Managers signing sons

    I read an article this morning that Gus Poyet wants to sign his son Diego and it made me think. Is it a good thing signing your son for a team as there has been loads over the years and even at Roots Hall. Do you think it unsettles the dressing room? Causes problems with other egos at the...

    Henry - A Great Big Woman

    Cheat. Liar. Criminal. Who would have thought that these would have been the words we would eventually associate with the much-loved, oft-celebrated Thierry Henry? Well, me, actually. For all the magnificence that he has shown on the pitch over the years, he has been like this for a few years...

    Champions League Reports

    Apologies, I've been rushed off my feet this week. Here's both games for you. Is it so inconceivable that Arsenal could end this strangest of seasons as Champions of Europe?
