Viva Ronaldo – Still Supporting Portugal

Scored one and unselfishly assisted another against the Czech Republic. At the very least, he’s bumping up his transfer fee with every game he plays in the Euros!

Why Rio Was Given Captaincy Over Rent Boy

Two or three years ago, John Terry was one of the few players representing a rival team that I had a certain amount of respect for. I regarded him as a very good player, a great leader, and someone I would have been very keen to see partnering Rio Ferdinand at the back. However, his [...]
