  1. Surviving Scudamore

    When Richard Scudamore announced the new home-grown quota system that will come into place for the start of the 2010/11 campaign, you could almost hear the penny drop in boardrooms across the country. From August 2010, a Premier League club will have it's squad capped at 25 players, containing...

    Much To Do For United And Chelsea

    Meet the new season, same as the old season. If the starting line-ups looked a little familiar, so too was the mutual loathing shared by these two teams, a festering cauldron of hatred that bubbled up frequently in this surprisingly rumbustious encounter. Wayne Rooney's late strike forced a...

    Adebayor - No Loss

    Generally, when a club agrees to sell their top goalscorer, you can expect a certain reaction from the supporters. It tends to range from anywhere between frenzied phonecalls to the local radio station and furious protests against the chairman in the carpark. Occasionally, in really serious...

    University Fees

    Sounds like the Uni's want the fees raised to £5000 from £3000 according to this mornings news. On 5Live they discussed the difference between England and Scotland, surely I didnt hear this properly. Scottish uni's are free if you have lived in the country for more than 3 years, OR if you are...

    Nelson: "Order the signal, Hardy!" Hardy: "Aye, aye sir." Nelson: "Hold on, that's not what I dictated to Flags. What's the meaning of this?" Hardy: "Sorry sir?" Nelson (reading aloud): "'England expects every person to do his or her duty, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation...

    Cesc's Education

    A new era for Arsenal will begin tonight when Cesc Fabregas makes his debut as the captain of Arsenal. A touchy and defensive Arsene Wenger made the announcement at a press conference before the vital Champions League clash with Dynamo Kiev. Wenger has come under sustained assault from the press...
  9. Laurent and Revell?

    this pairing looks very decent to me,revs workrate is astonishing whilst the frenchman looks classy. on tonights showing freedman and barney could well be under pressure. well played to every player ,brilliant goal and great saves yet for me the 2 up top stole the show.
  10. platini and the credit crunch

    platini has now stated new rules may be put in place to curb clubs from losing their identity,look at arsenal managed by a frenchman with most of the squad overseas players. personally it should be a max of 5 overseas players per matchday squad thus allowing homegrown talent to shine. a...

    Scolari Still Not Happy

    Under ordinary circumstances with an ordinary manager, a 4-0 victory in the Champions League might be considered worthy of celebration. However, it is rapidly becoming apparent that Luiz Felipe Scolari is very far from ordinary. "We did not play very well," he complained afterwards. "We made...

    Question Jean Francois Christophe - the answer?

    Couldn't go yesterday due to other commitments - so could someone comment on how the big Frenchman played? Is he the answer in the midfield?

    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'...

    Manuel Neuer

    While England’s footballers sulk in their sun-loungers, the rest of the continent will be contesting the 2008 European Championships. Iain Macintosh, who still won’t allow the word ‘McClaren’ to be uttered in his home, runs the rule over some of the potential stars of the summer. This week, it’s...

    Nothing Yet For Keegan

    Newcastle’s worrying, barren run under Kevin Keegan stretched to its third game on Wednesday morning when they were beaten for the second time in four days by Arsenal. Once again, the Magpies came to play football and once again they were ruthlessly punished for their audacity. Most managers...

    Reading - Arsenal

    I covered this game last night, and if you didn't see it then congratulations. It was truly awful and a shocking example of the way the game has gone in the top flight. Here's the report, have a read and be thankful that Southend aren't in the Premier League! "What do you do with a problem...
  18. Level 42

    Simply Yes Or No. I am undecided if admitting to enjoying the pop-jazz fusions of The Isle of Wight's favourite sons in my past is a crime as henious as fiddling with a Frenchman's onions.

    New Terror Warning from an unsuspected source

    The terror threat has been raised again because a well known terrorist, it is believed, has managed to evade the authorities at either our airports or our ports and is at large in this country. Unusually, in this day and age, he is not an Islamic terrorist, but a French one. It is believed he...
