Players Shouldn’t Celebrate With Their Own Fans! Ever!

You would think that by now we would be used to it. Dramatic last gasp wins have been commonplace for Manchester United fans during Sir Alex Ferguson’s reign.

Why Fergie Was Wrong To Blast Rio

Why Fergie Was Wrong To Blast Rio

Sir Alex Ferguson has changed my life. Some of the best feelings I’ve ever experienced are a result of the brilliant teams he has built and the success he has inspired. Whilst I’m not blinded to his mistakes or personal flaws, it is rare that I would publicly criticise him. However, I think the handling [...]

It’s Never Their Fault

Day 1 in Oslo

The journey started at 4.30am which is earlier than anyone should ever be made to get up at. After a quick enough flight from Manchester to Amsterdam for the connecting flight to Norway, we finally paid attention to the fact our destination airport was Sandefjord, not Oslo.

Not A Shred Of Evidence, Suarez?

Luis Suarez is continuing to fulfil his role as a victim perfectly at Liverpool in his recent statements about his eight match ban for the racial abuse of Patrice Evra.

Singing For England?

Singing For England?

“Did you cheer, did you cheer, did you cheer when Beckham scored?” we would sing to opposition fans following David Beckham’s transformation from villain to hero in the eyes of England fans.

GIF: Why Did Given Handball Go Unpunished?

The linesman flagged for this in the second half but the referee waved play on. No advantage was gained from waving play on. You won’t have seen this on Match of the Day 2 though. Can you imagine if David de Gea rushed out of the penalty area and handled the ball? See Beautifully Red [...]
