  1. Pac Man Pummels Clottey, Provokes Mayweather

    Manny Pacquiao sent out a warning shot to Floyd Mayweather Junior by drubbing Joshua Clottey, taking the African apart in twelve long, gruelling rounds. The only reason this fight was scheduled was because of the row over drug testing between Pacquiao and Mayweather, with Mayweather facing...
  2. Pellegrini In A State Of Pjanic

    When Manuel Pellegrini took the reins at Real Madrid, blank cheque book in hand, I doubt very much he expected his only shot at silverware at this stage of the season would lie solely in a sprint to the finish with Barcelona... Courtesy of Miralem Pjanic, that is exactly the situation. Lyon...

    If you were born in the 50's, 60's or 70's

    Doesn't this just some up what it was like growing up and exactly what the kids of today are missing out on? First, we survived being born to mothers who smoked and/or drank while they carried us and lived in houses made of asbestos. They took aspirin, ate blue cheese, raw egg products, loads...

    Over the last few months thoeries about Tilly leaving have been bandied about, but the one i'm actually believeing more and more, and have heard a few times now is this; Tilly won't walk, due to his love of the Club. However if he were sacked then he looks like the victim instead of the bad...

    Friday Joke

    A bloke sees an advert in a pet shop, 'talking centipede', £5000. He buys it and takes it home in a small box. After about 30 minutes he opens the box and says "would you like to go for a pint?". The centipede doesn't answer. Raising his voice he repeats the question, still no reply. Getting...

    A Big Cheer For Little Clubs

    Bit of a new one this, it's for the Irish Examiner's football supplement, currently rolling off the presses as I type. Bit more wordy than the usual fare and with more Anglo-centric references. Anyway, give it a go and let me know what you think, it helps to have feedback with new stuff... If...

    Who Would You Be? Bill or Roman?

    Who would you rather be this summer? Multi-billionaire owner of Chelsea, Roman Abramovich or reasonably wealthy owner of Everton, Bill Kenwright. Think carefully before you choose, there's more to this than meets the eye. Kenwright may have left Wembley empty-handed on Saturday night, but at...

    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...
