8 years without a trophy? Here’s a new contract Arsene…

Posted  February 18, 2013  by  TO

Over the past few months, without real explanation, my personal levels of enthusiasm for the beautiful game has somewhat waned. It’s surprising, considering that 2012 was such a good year for my club West Ham.  Winning the championship play off final at Wembley and then doing reasonably well in the Premier League, you’d think that […]

Fantasy Premier League tips – Gameweek 17

Posted  December 15, 2012  by  CG

For gameweek 17, we’re backing the wounded animal. Following their crushing stoppage time defeat to their Manchester (and title) rivals, we’d expect Manchester City to begin putting things right in the league away at Newcastle. City have won nine of their last 11 matches against the Magpies, while Alan Pardew’s side has registered just three […]

Fantasy Premier League tips – Gameweek 16

Posted  December 7, 2012  by  CG

For Gameweek 16, it’s worth noting that both Sunderland and Reading will be involved in a double gameweek. Of course, their fixtures aren’t exactly looking easy, particularly given their current league positions and poor form. We’d avoid loading your fantasy side with Mackems and Royals, but then we’d also be careful about ditching any of […]

Posted  December 1, 2012  by  CG

A few of our recommended changes from Gamweek 14 were thrown out there with one eye on this weekend’s fixtures. Admittedly, the Norwich, Liverpool and Chelsea players we recommended won’t have done you much good in midweek fantasy football, and while we’re wary of copping out, we would rehash some of the same advice for […]

Video Technology could work you know..

Posted  January 5, 2012  by  GM

2012. We do not have hover cars yet, we do not have robots to perform our everyday tasks and we do not have a good way of assisting referees in football.  Despite this being one of those years which features heavily in science fiction stories of old we are still living in a sporting past […]

The Tevez Saga rolls on to a new low. Mancini potentially backing down?

Posted  November 2, 2011  by  GM

Apparently “never” in context to Tevez playing for Manchester City again doesn’t actually mean “never”.  What it actually means is “if you say sorry all is forgiven and you can play again”.  Maybe I am being cynical here, but I thought that Mancini showed a great level of professionalism in dealing with the Tevez-not-playing row, […]

Ohhh Robin Van Persie…

Posted  January 5, 2013  by  CG

Ok, you may well be a Manchester United fan. If not, chances are, you hate Sir Alex Ferguson’s Red Devils. But even the most die hard City or Liverpool supporter would have to agree that Robin Van Persie’s last gasp equaliser against West Ham this evening was just phenomenal. First, the darting run for Ryan […]

A message to Barcelona: Enough is as good as the proverbial eight course meal

Posted  July 13, 2011  by  CG

And we were thinking the Luka Modric saga is getting beyond a joke. The situation with Cesc Fabregas and Barcelona is truly incredible. The Catalan club is admired across the world for the way in which the team plays the game, but the way they handle their business off the pitch is as disgraceful as […]
