    Transfer Deadline Day, bit by bit.

    Transfer deadline day is one of the most exciting of the season and, with the window slamming shut right on our deadline, you're not going to miss a thing. We told Iain Macintosh to set his alarm clock early, power up his Blackberry, stay tuned to the news and scour the internet for rumours...

    Redknapp's "Mish Mash" Players

    Michael Dawson summed it up best in the post-match interview. Most players, having secured a place at Wembley would bound onto the screen with a broad grin, congratulate, "the lads," and then scamper off for a late night on the bubbles. Not this time. Instead Dawson hung his head in shame. How...

    All I Want For Christmas...

    All I Want For Christmas Is.... Cristiano Ronaldo - A move to Real Madrid Santa Claus will get a distinct case of deja-vu when he opens young Cristiano's letter and sees his request scrawled out in red felt-tip pen. Didn't he send that last year? Anyone who thinks that Ronaldo wants to stay at...

    No Faith In Liverpool

    Liverpool Have Not Earned My Faith Alan Hansen ruined it for everyone. Before his infamous "you'll not win anything with kids" moment on the BBC in the mid-90s, football writers and pundits had the freedom to be as damning as they liked without the fear of a nasty comeuppance. But...

    Arsenal Still Not Very Good

    Arsenal are the architects of their own problems sometimes. Their failure to secure top spot in Group G can be attributed directly to their inability to beat a woeful Fenerbahce side at The Emirates earlier in the campaign. That traditional tale of misplaced opportunities and wasted dominance...

    Scolari Knows The Price Of Failure

    Luiz Felipe Scolari is all too aware of the ramifications of failure at Chelsea. High expectations and high expenditure means a low tolerance for poor results. "Now we need to beat Cluj," he said after drawing with Bordeaux on Wednesday night. "But if I thought my players did not have the...

    Well, that b*ggered up the first draft...

    Extraordinary. Just when you think that you've got the measure of this ridiculous sport, along comes a game so remarkable, so unexpected and so astonishing that you need to sit down and take a deep breath before you can even start to make sense of it all. Tottenham Hotspur's impetuous comeback...

    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...

    Ashley Should Hide Now

    Kevin Keegan was not simply the manager of Newcastle United. In the eyes of the supporters he was a hero, an icon, a leader and an inspiration. His sacking will not be treated as another turn of the managerial merry-go-round, it will be felt like the killing of a monarch. You have to visit...

    Arsenal Put Plenty Past Twente

    Crisis? What crisis? Arsenal's early season jitters were massaged away last night with a comfortably comprehensive victory over FC Twente that secured their place in the group stages of the Champions League. In today's hyper-sensitive, overly-neurotic game, it doesn't take much to put that 'c'...

    Thierry Henry

    In what sounds ever so slightly like an SOS call, Thierry Henry has told the BBC that the only club in England he would ever consider returning to would be Arsenal. Henry had been linked with a move to Newcastle, but like any sane human being, he moved as quickly as he does in the penalty area...

    Arsenal v Reading

    Arsenal returned to winning ways at a freezing cold Emirates Stadium with a convincing 2-0 victory over a Reading side who are nose-diving at the worst possible time. Only a combination of fine goalkeeping, desperate clearances and Arsenal's own profligacy prevented this from becoming a...

    Manchester City

    The legendary British football commentator Stuart Hall once earned himself a telling-off from then-Manchester City manager Kevin Keegan for continually referring to Maine Road as, “The Theatre of Comedy.” Keegan implored Hall to show the club some respect, but as Hall later pointed out...

    Arsene Wenger will have just one question on his mind

    As he surveys the wreckage of a promising season that has gone horribly, horribly wrong, Arsene Wenger will have just one question on his mind. What changes need to be made this summer to avoid ever having to go through that again? The first thing everyone connected with the club needs to do is...
