More Stupid Comments From Chelsea Captain

You can write a book filled with the moronic statements made by John “British bulldog” Terry. Some of my favourites: 1. At the start of the 2008-2009 season, he claimed United had peaked and Chelsea were ready to improve. United went on to win the league for a third successive season, seven points clear of [...]

Fletch: I Promised Crying Family I’d Reach Another CL Final

Darren Fletcher was robbed of his place in the European Cup final after the referee in the semi-final wrongly judged him to have fouled Cesc Fabregas in the penalty area. Barcelona’s midfield ripped us to shreds and we will always be left to wonder what would have happened if Fletcher had been playing. The fact [...]

Sol Campbell, You Got Merked

Earlier in the week, I claimed the Sol Campbell rumour simply had to be the press making mischief. We were having a defensive crisis and Sol Campbell was a free agent.
