It begins in earnest now folks

Hi guys, Sorry for the slow posting, work has been MENTAL these last few weeks. So excuses out of the way, England are out of the World Cup, I’m pleased in some respects that our insipid performances in no way are excused by the FA and the fans. There can be nothing good from this […]

Defoe shin 1 : Slovenia 0

Football, at its very essence is a simple game. You take your foot, conveniently attached to the end of your leg and swing it, with a certain amount of controlled venom at a ball. The ensuing kinetic power exchange pushes the ball through the air at a speed directly related to the force applied by […]

I’d like to talk a load of balls…nothing new there then…

Balls. A favourite word of mine. Generally used to define when I think something has gone horribly wrong. Ironically, the Jabulani ball is fairly close to my definition.

Alas poor Philippe, I knew him well….kinda.

I really rate Philippe Senderos, I think physically he has all the attributes to be a good defender. Stature, Strength, Good jumping all of which are essential. He also has desire, but I think, similar to Fabianski he is a bit fragile mentally. This can cause him to go missing in the big games, or […]

Disappointment, frustration and downright annoyance

It just gets bloody worse…this is rewrite number 2. The first edition went the way of the swan due to me dropping my Blackberry and cracking the screen. The first re-write was about ten mins ago…when I deleted the bloody thing. Accidentally, as I’d spent an hour on it. Naturally it wasn’t meant to be, […]
