    The Guardian Exposed

    The next time a link to The Guardian is rammed down your neck by those that would eat the rich, demand socialism and deny choice, then consider this. A list of Guardian contributors who demand equality for the downtrodden but have, of course, never experienced hardship and never will. I give...

    Group A - Brazil, Croatia, Mexico and Cameroon

    Group A, the group of the host nation, and possibly even the favourites. It seems that the draw has been kind to Brazil, and they will be expected to qualify from the group easily. The battle for second place and qualification to the next round will be close, with all three of the other teams...

    (Some Shrimpers Fans Had Nothing To Do) .... Lord Of The Manors

    As the title suggest, Southchurch Park yesterday played host to a few Southend United fans who had nothing to do in the afternoon. A very inaccurate account of the match, but an accurate summary of the day, for Southend Manor v Eton Manor is here...

  8. Chelsea Recieve Nul Points, Again

    Apparently, Carlo Ancelotti’s mother never warned him that if he pulled a funny face and the wind blew, it would stay that way. Ancelotti pulled the same expression of futile, emotionless pondering for 94 miserable minutes as Chelsea, yet again, faultered in Europe. Much had been made of...

    Wenger's Bar

    I'm afraid I won't be writing a column this week, or indeed ever again. Yep, I'm hanging up my presspass and shutting my laptop for the final time. I'm off to France, you see. Arsene Wenger's assertion that he learned everything he needed to know about football in a pub gave me food for thought...
  10. ESB's Champions League Run Down

    It's that time of year again. The time when the Giants of European football clamour together for one big orgy of tactical football and self-congratulation. yes, it's the Champions League group stages, and here is my run down of the groups and who to look out for. Group A On the face of it...

    Ibrahimovic to Barca/Eto'o & Hleb to Inter

    Oh dear oh dear, I think Barca have really had their pants pulled down on this one. Ibrahamovic is a poor mans Berbatov at best! http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/europe/8159267.stm

    Summer Madness

    Was football just waiting for me to go on holiday before it got interesting? I left for the sun-bleached Spanish countryside on the morning after the Confederations Cup Final and, no sooner had my budget airliner wobbled onto Alicante's dusty runway than the transfer market exploded. Every trip...

    Cheated Chelsea Lose The Plot

    It was a night that should have been memorable for the beauty of Michael Essien's opening goal, but it is a raging Didier Drogba who will linger in the mind's eye. Furious with the referee's failure to award any one of four possible penalties, he shouted and screamed in his face before being...

    I wish I'd Gone To Hayes

    Barcelona 0-0 Chelsea So was it Guus Hiddink's tactics or Petr Cech's saves? Was it the referee and his failure to spot a late tug on Theirry Henry or was it Barcelona's inability to take their chances? Chelsea fans won't give two hoots. The net result of this rather grim affair was a scoreless...
