    Slipperduke Review of 2009

    Welcome, my very dear friends, to a very special presentation. It's that time of year again, you see. A chance to sift through the wreckage of twelve months of English football, to reward the noble and to eviscerate the terrible. Bigger than the Ballon D'or, more prestigious than the PFA, these...

    Films that mapped your youth.

    I have got Quadrophenia on the box at the moment which never siezes to entertain me but it got me thinking. When it came out the mod revival was in full swing and as an stroppy short haired, button down Ben Sherman, Staypressed strids and Hush Puppies wearing trend setter, 'Quad' was my bible...

    City Must Be Patient

    There's no doubt about the identity of this weekend's biggest fixture, is there? It is, as we have said many times already this campaign, 'a big weekend for Rafa Benitez'. Mind you, it's an even bigger one for Mark Hughes. After splashing more money than Victoria Beckham and Coleen Rooney...

    X-Files Special: The Teflon Ron

    Reading through many of the posts regarding our current financial woes, one thought has struck me over and over again: How the hell does Ron Martin do it? Mr Martin has been proven to be a liar. That’s a fact that cannot be disputed. I was thinking of prefacing that with an ‘IMHO’, but I...
  7. You've got to hand it to him

    I've never met the man, so haven't seen his skills first hand, but you've got to hand it to him. Ron Martin must have incredibly slick PR skills. He seems to be like teflon. Whenever there is something bad to face, either someone else is put forward to take the flak or he somehow wins people...
  8. 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...

    Money Can't Buy Honour

    Footballers are a funny lot. Sometimes, it's like they have their own language. In their world an 'egg' or a 'nugget' means a foolish person, 'beans-on-toast' means the goalpost and 'I want to play Champions League football,' actually means, 'To hell with that, I want to earn more money in a...

    Maybe Just A Shandy

    Harry Redknapp has always had a slightly jaundiced take on modern football. He doesn't care much for vitamin supplements and sports psychology, he'd rather talk old fashioned motivation than 'visualisation' and he doesn't feel bad about swearing at his players. Earlier this season I saw him...

    Question Your experiences of taking the other half to the football...

    I was talking to my boss today who failed to convince his wife to come with him and watch the Chelsea vs Liverpool CL match last night, as she thought it'd be a 'dull game'. But it reminded me of my own experiences when trying to convince the better half of what makes going to the football so...
