  1. Centre midfield -

    I did not go to the game today cannot see how Brown cannot see the massive problem in the middle .. Exactly what is his thinking on the key part of the team ?? I know some people like Timlin but I think hes well out of his depth and makes it a lot worse by shooting his mouth off and giving...
  2. Tangled up in Blue


    The Spanish media are reporting that Messi is refusing to sign a new contract for Barça and is offering his services to Pep Guardiola's Man Cty. Interesting.
  3. Götze to Bayern

    Ignoring the timing of the announcement, which has been cynically agreed upon to draw attention away from revelations concerning Hoeness' tax fraud shenanigans; that is one hell of a statement of intent from Bayern for the future under Pep Guardiola. They're a side already littered with world...

    Man City - Mancini & Balotelli

    Hi All, A few questions... Come the end of the season if you were in charge of Man City would you sell or keep Balotelli? If you owned Man City, would you keep Mancini or release him? AND What do you think the Man City owners will do? Will they replace Mancini and can you see Balotelli at...

    Owners rights

    Saw this in the Mail on Sunday. The Russian wife of Bournemouth's part owner Maxim Demin stormed into the dressing room at half time to deliver a pep talk. Losing 1-0, the players sat shocked as Irena Demlin demanded a second half improvement. They went on to lose by the same score but she was...

    Sturrock plans transfers to pep up Southend

    SOUTHEND United manager Paul Sturrock insists he will delve in to the transfer market to halt his side’s loss of form. More...
  9. Xavi Takes Centre Stage in Football Spectacle

    When two teams of the highest calibre collide, it wouldn’t be beyond the realms of possibility that they negate each other and the feature becomes something of an anti-climax. Not when Arsene Wenger and Pep Guardiola are around. No. This was special. Barcelona flew out of the traps as if to...
  10. Money Can't Buy You Class

    Money can you buy a lot of things. It can buy you a fast car, a nice house and a beautiful wife. It can buy you the worlds greatest player and, in Manchester City's case, it can buy you an incompetent defence. What money can't buy you, Manuel Pellegrini learnt tonight, is class. El Classico...
  11. Colchester and proud!

    Scott McGleish to Orient

    Geraint goes for a proven striker to pep up their bid to avoid relegation.
  12. The tale of two halfs

    Is it me, or is there a worrying trend to play badly in the second half. it seems to have happened in virtually every game this season. Today we had a strong first half and should have been 2 or 3 - 0 up, then half time blows and we come out a different side. I can only put it down to 2 things...

    Is this the way forward?

    White witch scores on pitch for Frome LONDON (Reuters) - A white witch who performed a ritual to remove a curse from the pitch of minor league side Frome Town says she has already helped the team improve their luck. Frome, in Somerset, have struggled to score goals at home this season but got...
