    Johan Cruyff RIP

    Has died aged 68. Didn't know he was ill, wasnt he a heavy smoker? A great footballer in his day I've read so much about how great he was.
  2. Johan Cryuff

    Legendary footballer JC has been diagnosed with lung cancer. :sad: Though, no surprise as he was (is?) a chain smoker.
  3. Albert Johanneson

    Labour Leader faces backlash

    http://www.theguardian.com/politics/2014/oct/26/ed-miliband-backlash-scottish-labour-johann-lamont Not ideal press for Reddie Eddie so close to elections. Lots of support for him up in good ol' Jockland.

    Farnborough F.C.

    Paddy Power are sponsoring Farnborough and have changed the player names to footballing legends. Another brilliant piece of marketing from the guy at Paddy Power! Even an ex-shrimper has changed his name Here's the squad list: GK: Gordon Banks (Kevin Scriven) DF: Lothar Matthaus...

    Bosman List & Others Available

    Thought it would be good to have one place that lists all of the players we've noticed are either released or otherwise available (transfer listed or been told they can find another club). I won't have time to constantly update this so it would be great if when the mods are on, if you see this...
  7. Left-wing Journalist Is A Very Silly Boy Shock

    Independent columnist Johann Hari has admitted copying the work of others (including it would seem Ann Leslie of the Daily Mail) to improve his articles. He has also apologised for editing the Wikipedia entries of people he had clashed with, using the pseudonym David Rose, "I took out nasty...

    Kulula Airline

    Kulula is an Airline with it's head office situated in Johannesburg . Kulula airline attendants make an effort to make the in-flight "safety lecture" and announcements a bit more entertaining. Here are some real examples that have been heard or reported: Kulula's new paint scheme "Flying...
  9. Who's Going Home In An FA Sponsored Aston?

    With just 90 minutes of football seperating the thirty prospective England internationals from South Africa, which seven unfortunate players will find themselves on stand-by? Michael Carrick: Unfortunately for the Manchester United midfielder, England have a relative embarrassment of riches in...

    Maradona banned

    ...for two months. Shame as I won't see his ugly, coke filled mug on the touchline when Argentina play the Catalan national team(managed by Johan Cruyff)on the 22nd December here at the Nou Camp.
  12. England's Second String Made to Swelter.

    A second string England team fell to a single moment of brilliance in Doha, in an otherwise completely forgettable international friendly. As has become a familiar case for the meaningless friendlies outside of qualification matters, the England side consisted of Wayne Rooney, Gareth Barry...

    Ruthless United Stun Arsenal

    There is a reason why Manchester United are the best team in the world. They don't lift all those trophies simply because they have better players, or smarter tactics. They succeed so frequently because Sir Alex Ferguson has built himself a team of winners, professional and ruthless, indomitable...

    Super-Outsiders? Not A Chance.

    Villarreal 1-1 Arsenal Senna, 10 Adebayor, 66 If it is true that whatever fails to kill you makes you stronger, then soon Arsenal will be invincible. After the painful grind of a season ruined by injuries and internal dispute, the Gunners are growing as a team, and as men. To come back from...

    Furious Phil Unleashes Hell

    Arsenal 2-1 Hull City (Van Persie, 74) (Barmby, 12) (Gallas, 84) Phil Brown's phone will be red hot by now. In one exhilarating ten minute press conference, the furious Hull City manager unleashed a string of attacks aimed at everyone he deemed responsible for his team's exit. He accused Cesc...

    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...

    Nervous Gunners Slip Through

    Cesc Fabregas is the youngest Arsenal captain since Tony Adams and, appropriately enough, the new era began much like the old one. The Gunners were tentative and unsure of themselves, but recovered their composure to sneak a victory. One nil to the Arsenal? Meet the new boss, same as the old...

    Gunners Fire Blanks

    How Arsenal could have done with a win here. With two disastrous results behind them and a foreboding clash with Manchester United waiting on Saturday, this was a perfect opportunity to boost morale, on and off the pitch, but it wasn't to be. Fenerbahce, much improved from their humiliating...
