Stoke Deserve Praise for Giving Nathan Jones His Big Break

January 11, 2019

Far too often in football management, the same old names are banded around when a lower half Premier League club or Championship team (especially with Stoke’s pedigree) are in need of new leadership. David Moyes, Steve Bruce, Sam Allardyce, Mick McCarthy are just four such journeymen who have all at one time or another had […]

Scottish Football is Exciting Again: And it’s ALL Thanks to an Englishman

January 3, 2019

As of the 13th December 2018, Scotland’s UEFA coefficient ranking (used to determine the number of qualifying places each country’s top flight receives for […]

Pochettino a Genius? Bit Much isn’t it?

December 13, 2018

On one or two media outlets (who shall remain nameless) I have heard the word genius banded around about Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino and his feat of guiding Spurs into the last sixteen of the Champions League. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. Not quite. Although Tottenham drawing in Barcelona to reach the latter stages of the tournament after picking […]

The Burning Question: Who the Hell are St Mirren?

December 12, 2018

Formed in 1877 in Paisley, Renfrewshire, it is safe to say that the side known as the ‘Buddies’ have often punched above their weight in their 141-year history for a relatively small club by comparison to the heavyweights of Scottish football. A first major trophy came in 1926 when St Mirren beat giants Celtic in […]

Is Pogba the Biggest Waste of Money EVER?

However, when United […]

Max Verstappen: Passionate? Or Anger Management?

November 27, 2018

No one can deny that Red Bull driver Max Verstappen is a remarkable talent and supremely welcome breath of fresh air into the corporate world of F1.

What’s with all the Nasri Hate?

November 13, 2018

Now, I get it, former Arsenal and Manchester City attacking midfielder Samir Nasri has been something of a naughty boy after breaching WADA rules in 2016 after taking an intravenous drip of 500 millilitres of water containing nutrients. The result was a six-month ban from February 2018 which was later extended by a further 12 […]
