When the stories first started about Manuel Almunia playing for England, I was rather taken aback that Arsenal could have a goalkeeper in his 30′s who’d yet to pick up an international cap.

League Clubs Bigger Than England

The football fan that has confused me more than any other is the England fan who will sing Wayne Rooney’s name when they’re at Wembley, yet will come to Old Trafford the following week and chant “you fat bastard!” whenever he’s on the ball.

How Could We Have Missed Rooney’s Arrogance?

Wayne Rooney has been accused of many things, the latest of which, “arrogant”. Andorra midfield, Oscar Sonejee, obviously wants to make a name for himself.
