Attacking Defence….

As a student, I know only to well just what it takes to get something done, well, let me perhaps rephrase that, I know how to summon up the strength and mental focus to get a job done, at the last minute, & , one which I have no choice but to do. I call it the student technique, one in which you only perform when you are forced & when the work needs to get done.

Man Utd kind of remind me of this student technique somewhat, particularly this season. A season in which they have fallen behind in 8 of the 12 games they have played so far. It seems Read On..

A “BFA”, Enough Already

I read in one of yesterdays papers “Daily Mail” that there was talk of there being a “BFA” being formed. For those of you a bit confused and yet to masters the art of abbreviations, the term which is dubbed “BFA” actually stands for Black Footballers Asscoiation. Dumb founded yet? Well, I for one certainly am. To think in the 21st century we would even have enough people with the IQ of frozen yogurt to gather momentum in getting this association founded is just mind blowing to me.

I understand and fully backed the actions of Rio Ferdinand this weekend, but for some to actually suggests they start their own association Read On..

Whats the Sexy with Chelsea….

Chelsea? Sexy? Yes, a sentence not many thought they would read, but that is what has become of Roman’s boys in blue. There is a sense of swag and perhaps tika-taka that can now be associated with this current Chelsea side. It’s simple, with Di Matteo came a sexier more aero dynamic convertible and off went the blue coach that was last seen parked inside the Nou Camp last season.

I for one remember a time when you couldn’t pay us to watch Chelsea in the Champions League group stages. Well, I suppose you could, but we would take the money and watch whichever English side was also in action on Read On..

Kick It Out, but how far……

Again, football has been dominated by one issue in the last week or so, and indeed over the last year.

I’m not referring to the fact that a toddler’s got more chance of finishing a bowl of soup with a plastic fork than Luis Suarez has of finishing a decent chance. And No, it’s not even the question as to why the Wayne Rooney who plays for Man United seems a master class away from the one who turns out for England. Nor is it the fact that Harry Redknapp continues to make the rest of the pundits on Match of the Day look like chumps of the highest order.

 

No, it’s Read On..

Luck? You make your own right….

If the hallmark of champions is the ability to win even when playing badly, then surely the quality of run away champions has to be the ability to sweep aside 3 of their supposed closest rivals by a cumulative scoreline of 14-3, without even playing closest to their best. Take 5 of the season took place this weekend, and auditions didn’t quite go as well as some might have planned, but this is the premier league, since when does anything go according to plan. Just over a month in and everyone including myself already has strong opinions on who the winners and losers will be this year, but let’s back Read On..

Two Horse Race…..You’re Having A Laugh….

As the dust settles after another exciting but yet somewhat predictable weekend of football, we learn that this game hardly has anything new to offer. Think about it, Man Utd and Man City delivered their weekly disposal of whatever apparent footballing team was lined up against them. Chelsea soldiered on to secure a gritty 2-1 away win at the mackems, and Arsenal, well, Arsenal where gifted a win by what must be said has been an in form Vava-Vorm. Liverpool, the team that apparently will pip Arsen’s side to fourth place continued to be consistently inconsistent with an impressive 1-0 away loss to Stoke.  Ok, so maybe i’m lying about Read On..

Barclays Back Again….

Christ all mighty, thank goodness all that bizzle dazzle is done and over with, I honestly don’t think I would have been able to stomach another weekend without it. A week without it and I feel as if I’m beginning to feel withdrawal symptoms. You see, it’s all a waste of time this International break, and I for one have always likened it to a bottle of pop, without the fizz of course. Because we know the potential is there, but hardly are we left wanting more, in fact the exact opposite. So whats the point of all these European Qualifiers, “now before some nimwit puts his hand up and Read On..

Oh Arsen, Quantity or Quality?

Date: 28/08/2011 Venue: Old Trafford Result: 8-2

Ask any Arsenal fan what they thought about the result, and many will turn their heads in disgust and shame. “Wenger needs to go. We are a joke. Pathetic,” are just some of the responses that result has invoked. Today in the office, a day after the transfer deadline day, a few of the boys “mainly Arsenal fans” where looking back at the game on Sunday, describing it as the worst result in Arsenals history. Well, depends on how you choose to look at it, right? Ask me what I thought about the game and I will tell you in no uncertain terms, that Read On..

Settle down, it’s only August

When Sheik Mansour completed his purchase of Manchester City on September 23rd 2009, nobody could have envisaged the impact his money would have had since then. Three games into the new campaign, and Mancini and his stars have swept aside everyone in their path. Bookies are slashing the odds on the EPL landing on the blue side of Manchester, and even Sir Alex, who previously dismissed his rivals as “noisy neighbours”, has now acknowledged them as genuine contenders. All this hype and only 3 games into the season, surely a little bit premature, or is it? Being a football fanatic, I have wasted no time on jumping upon the City Read On..
