I’ve considered writing a blog for awhile now but I’ve never really got round to putting words on a page. I stopped myself for so long as I’m not a particularly good writer, plus I’m not sure my opinion actually holds much water. It was only around 14/15 months ago I took an interest in women’s football so I’m still a novice in the world of Women’s Footy. It probably doesn’t help that I’ve only actually attended three matches, although I could literally add two zeros to the end of …

Make no mistake, Arsenal were very very good last night and fully deserved their 3-0 win away in Istanbul, however all of Fenerbahce’s problems, in both halves, were of their own making with respective full backs Bekir İrtegün and Michal Kadlec having noticeably poor evenings.
Bekir was stationed on the right hand side whilst Kadlec was entrusted with the task of shackling the quick Theo Walcott on the left with it being clear right from the off that Arsenal were looking to get at Fenerbahce via Walcott down the right hand …

On the eve of every single Premier League season all Journalists set themselves up for an almighty fall by the time May comes around, by predicting the outcome of the upcoming season and I myself am doing the exact same thing. Who will finish where? Who will surprise us? Who will slip through the relegation trapdoor?
I have gone with a top four that in terms of teams involved isn’t at all surprising however the order may come as a shock to some with Manchester United being the bookies’ third favourites …

Sir Alex Ferguson’s final signing as Manchester United manager came in January 2013 in the form of Wilfried Zaha who joined the English Champions for a fee reported to be around £15million, however Zaha was immediately loaned back to his previous club Crystal Palace in order for him to contribute to their promotion charge and never played under Ferguson.
Zaha, following the retirement of the long serving Manchester United manager, has joined up with David Moyes’ first team on the pre-season tour to Asia and Australia and has made quite the …

Here I will be discussing my opinion on racism in football, from incidents which involve top footballers such as Luis Suarez and John Terry to players that are playing non-league football. There have been incidents all over the world in such countries as Turkey, Russia and more, I will be focusing on the racism in England. All I would like to state that I am against racism in football as everyone should be, but I think more should be done.

First of all The FA in England aren’t clamping down on …

During the weekend of the semi finals of the FA cup, Millwall fans disgraced the nation. At the home of the national team, Wembley Stadium, the fans of the London based team thought it would be good to start some chaos. Millwall fans weren’t the only ones guilty of these actions during the same weekend either. After the Tyne-Wear derby, chaos broke out. Newcastle fans more so were the guilty convicts
This comes at a time as football related violence seemed to of calmed down, there hasn’t been many incidents in …

The number of shall we say rather difficult to believe stories regarding the future of Wayne Rooney increased this morning as Catalan based newspaper ‘Sport’ reported a ‘solution’ had been found between Barcelona and Manchester United and this solution would take both Thiago and David Villa to Old Trafford for a fee of twenty six million Euros with Wayne Rooney moving to Barcelona for a fee of thirty million Euros.
This story to me, first appears to be nonsense due to the fact Manchester United had a number of opportunities to …

It was little more than exactly a month ago that it was reported that West Ham United had seen their tentative £14.5million opening offer for Sevilla striker Alvaro Negredo knocked back with the club not deeming the offer worthy of Negredo’s quality and the player preferring to move to a club which could offer Champions League football. Fast forward a month and it is Manchester City who appear to be in pole position to secure the services of the Spanish forward for a mammoth £22million which is just five million …

With the deal having now been confirmed with Nicolas Anelka being pictured outside the Hawthorns with a West Bromwich Albion shirt it appears as though Steve Clarke is attempting to rebuild his strike force which has been left decimated by departures thus far this summer. With Romelu Lukaku returning to Chelsea after his hugely successful loan campaign with West Brom during which the Belgian registering seventeen League goals and Peter Odemwingie expected to be forced out of the club following his post-Christmas exile as a result of his desire to …
