Drop Down Menu

By

In Barclays Premier League chat, one often hears the assertion that a team is ‘too good to go down’.

Managerial Philosophy

By

I had an idea a few years back that it would have been interesting for Formula One drivers to change cars at the end of every season. I thought it would have been fun to have seen the reigning World Champion joining the team that finished bottom of the Constructors’ Standings the previous season, and [...]

Going Fourth

By

If we accept the well-know and oft-used adage that in football, “you’re only as good as your last game”, then Arsenal have every right to be considered world beaters right now. The way they dismantled Tottenham Hotspur in Sunday’s North London derby, was a sight for the sore eyes of Gunners’ fans who’ve shed more [...]

Much Too Young

By

In 1979 “Too Much Too Young” was a smash hit song in the UK. It was produced and released by a band called “The Specials”, and if you’re wondering what any of this has to do with the Barclays Premier League, please feel free to read on. Current Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas’ services reportedly cost [...]

Doing What Comes Unnaturally

By

Manchester City versus Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday is not a title decider. Having said that, should Spurs lose, their putative aspirational fire will be all but extinguished. There’s nothing like starting an article with a few big words to get everyone on their toes. Tottenham Hotspur’s title hopes (if they were ever truly made manifest) [...]

The Sparky that Lights the Fire?

By

I am wondering the extent to which Michael Jackson was responsible for Mark Hughes’ appointment as the new Queens Park Rangers manager. If this sounds a little strange, let me explain. In April 2011, Fulham’s owner Mohamed Al Fayed unveiled a statue of the deceased pop icon outside the club’s home ground, Craven Cottage. Jackson [...]

Vintage

By

2011 has been an extraordinary year in the world of sport, and if anything, 2012 looks all set to top it in terms of action, excitement, and the human drama that can lift our spirits and crush our souls in the blink of an eye. When Santa asked me what I wanted for Christmas, I [...]

Rack and Opinion

By

Opinions are divided on whether sports television presenters should have opinions or not. My opinion is that I don’t really have an opinion on the issue. In my opinion though, presenters should be facilitators, drawing the opinions out of studio guests who have played football at the highest level and lifted actual trophies as opposed [...]

That Which We Call A Rose….

By

Turkey is traditionally served at Christmas in certain parts of the world – don’t ask me why. It has something to do, apparently, with geese becoming too expensive and chicken being a delicacy in yesteryear. In any event, it is eaten across the UK on Christmas Day and everyone seems to enjoy it. Although turkey [...]

Earning their Spurs

By

Tottenham Hotspur fans are getting excited. This is not unusual. Spurs fans are often excited, more frequently excitable, and, much like their beloved club, prone to the vicissitudes of football and life. Spurs fans are also notoriously negative, pessimistic, and wont to display airs of resignation that would make Eeyore look like an eternal optimist, [...]
