    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...

    England Flatter To Deceive

    NOTHING FOR ENGLAND TO SHOUT ABOUT Forget about the result, this was not a good night for England. Fabio Capello has much to ponder before he makes his final squad selection for the World Cup. A 3-1 victory over a side of Mexico’s quality is a fine result on paper, but the performance that went...
  4. Robinho: The £32.5m Advert

    When Manchester City pipped Chelsea to the signing of Robinho 18 months ago, it was dubbed as the transfer that would make the whole world take notice. It has, we’ve now noticed just how petulant a footballer can possibly be. The Brazilian forward come winger come child has had what can only be...
  5. 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...

    Webb Rescues Brazil

    Brazil 4-3 Egypt Kaka 5, 90 Zidan 8, 58 Fabiano 12 Shawkey 57 Juan 37 Now this is much more like it. After an insipid first day offered up only an uncomfortable mismatch and a desperately dull bore-draw, day two of the Confederations Cup finally delivered some excitement. Brazil were stifled...

    Brazil Are Crap

    Ecuador 1-1 Brazil Noboa, 89 Baptista, 73 One of the eternal joys of watching South American football is the sight of those famous yellow shirts buzzing around the pitch, flicking the ball to one another as if 30 yard first time passes were the easiest thing in the world. They play as...
  8. Old Problem, New Approach..drugs

    I saw this in one our local papers, and I just wanted to see what your thaughts are, especially if you are one of the recreational drug takers mentioned. 'Columbias vice-president, Fancisco Santos Calderon, appealed last week to recreational cocaine users in the UK to ponder the impact on...

    Dimitar Berbatov

    Tottenham fans won't be able to draw much comfort from the news that Manchester United have made an official bid for Dimitar Berbatov, but there is at least one bonus; it might shut Emil Danchev up for a while. Berbatov's dastardly agent has been agitating for a move away from White Hart Lane...

    Rafa Benitez

    In an ideal world, Rafa Benitez would have flown back to England with the rest of us on Monday, tingling with excitement after watching one of the finest international tournaments in decades and clutching a notepad full of potential summer signings. In an ideal world, as manager of one of the...

    The Transfer Thread

    To save the X number of threads that inevitably crop up every summer, I figure we can just bung them all in here. Saves bandwidth and all that. So, the first major transfer to note (or one of them) is Giovanni Dos Santos to Tottenham for 8.6m. I've never seen Gio play in real life, but on...

    Worth sharing....

    82ask.com Question of the Day.... Q: Who has the best name in world football? A: There are a number of contenders for the title of best name in football, but few have as good a name as Lierse’s Brazilian forward Credence Clearwater Couto (his parents were big fans!), Danger Fourpence (Caps...

    Five teams you love to love...

    ...other than Southend United, of course. As the counterpoint to Uxbridge's thread, let's get that lovin' feelin' going on. My five clubs are: 1. Flamengo. My first love in football, growing up in Rio. How can you fail to love a side that has Zico up front and Junior supplying all the guile...

    April Fool's Day

    Whilst April Fool's Day isn't recognised in Spain - our equivalent is on December 28th (Dia de los Santos Inocentes) - I am reminded of the ShrimperZone spoof we ran about four or five years ago featuring a certain Icelandic striker signing for the Shrimpers and an exclusive photo and interview...
