  1. Yorkshire Blue

    Being called up by England after 3 Premier League starts

    Forget the Fourth & Upwards Cup Knockout European Revenue Securing League results, is there any greater indictment of English football than the lack of depth that leads to this?

    A sad indictment of modernity

    Read this article from the Mail online which really saddened me. Two little girls "pretended" individually, to be lost in a shopping centre for an hour, both knew their mother was nearby and could see them, but both acted out their parts well. 616 people walked right by them!!! Only one...
  3. Coleman Cast Into the Championship Graveyard.

    Another season in the Premier League graveyard grinds to a halt and Chris Coleman departs Coventry, charged with the heinous crime of failing to take them aboard the Barclays gravy train. Who’d be a manager in the Championship, eh? Such is the stature of the second tier of English football in...
  4. 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...
  5. Why I Own A Green And Gold Scarf...

    I’m not a Manchester United fan. When Freddy Eastwood dispatched a venomous 25-yard free kick past Tomasz Kuszczack in the Carling Cup, I was as ecstatic as every other Southend supporter crammed into Roots Hall. I do, however, own a green and gold scarf. Supporters are funny groups of people...
  6. Costly Clauses Mount Up For Pompey

    It must be difficult supporting Portsmouth. It wasn’t so long ago you were walking Wembley Way triumphantly. Of course, it wasn’t so long ago that Portsmouth main goal was surviving in the Premier League… Now, you’re flinging England’s number 1 around like a QPR caretaker manager because...
  7. Football Managers Are For Three Years, Not Just Until Christmas

    It'll be a lean Christmas in the Hughes household this year. Well, not exactly, but Hughes will be without a job as of this evening. Rumours of his dismissal spread like wildfire before and during the game, Roberto Mancini's odds coming in as low as 1/6 and the board made the ominous...
  8. Fabulous Fabiano Foils Fat Faker

    National hero, cheating midget, the worlds greatest, bloated drug addict, national coach, and now, the man responsible for almost failing to qualify Argentina for next years World Cup. No, this isn't the Newcastle team sheet for next weekend, this is the rap sheet for Diego Maradona. Going into...
  9. Tiger Toils While the Underdog Boils

    Two weeks after Tiger Woods' misery at Hazeltine, He was rocked again at The Barclays by the most unlikely of contenders, 124 Seed Heath Slocum. Sergio Garcia took an early lead after the first round, yet characteristically threw it all away by shooting a 75 the very next day. After this, the...

    Tevez - The Big Girl

    Heroes can be hard to find in modern football. It's difficult to feel any connection to a teenage millionaire when he signs a contract large enough to fund a hospital wing before he's even scored his 20th Premier League goal. It's impossible to respect a man who passionately expresses his desire...

    X-Files Special: Prince of Wales really is a Charlie

    From Mark Steyn writing on NRO: According to His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales, we only have 96 months left to save the planet. I’m impressed. 96 months. Not 95. Not 97. July 2017. Put it in your diary. Usually the warm-mongers stick to the same old drone that we only have ten years left...

    The Championship

    After the scenes of celebration that greeted their dramatic play-off victory last May, even the most cynical of Derby County's fans couldn't have imagined the humiliation that was to come. Ironically, if they'd lost that Wembley final, Billy Davies would still be in charge, picking up the...

    If You Can't Beat Them...

    The appointment of Fabio Capello as the new England boss is good news for the long suffering fans, but a sad indictment of the present standard of English football managers. At least when Sven Goran Eriksson was appointed, Roy Hodgson was in contention. This time round there wasn't a single...
  14. Tilson Out !!

    Glad to see a decent manager at the Hall - nothing like a close up on BOOT-it Boothroyd to show us how football should be played - BOOT-it and win the throw in and then scrap for the corner - class tactics from the man who shook the Prem-****e. And seriously when is Tilson going to learn how...

    Memories - Old Pier Trains

    As a result of reading another thread on the Pub I've suddenly turned into an Anorak Pier Article These were proper pier trains and I can still remember the way they shook as they hurtled down the track. At top  speed (I'd guess 40-50 mph) there was a definite melodic rythm to them.   The...
  16. Darryl 4 England?

    If Flavs has as good a season next year as the last two have been, what are the chances of him getting an England call? Hear me out... Carson is on stand-by for the World Cup on the back of a handful of decent Championship games for Sheffield Wednesday. Rob Green was mediocre for Norwich this...
