Depression, Deeper Depression… Light At The End Of The Tunnel

For the past couple of weeks I’ve been a bit of a miserable bastard. I haven’t bothered going round to see my family, my bird has been on the receiving end of some temper tantrums and people at work have given me a wide berth. Whilst the less understanding features in my life, ie. those [...]

Whilst England are not a big concern of mine, I like all our lads to do well on International duty. Of course it made me chuckle when England failed to qualify for Euro 2008, particuarly given that there wasn’t a single United player in the squad for England’s last crucial qualifying match, but I was [...]

Head To Heads Mean Nothing, Alonso

One of the wonderful things about league football is that the best team always wins. If over 38 matches you pick up more points than any other team, you are the best team. You might not be the most entertaining, you might not be the best defensively, you might not have the best player, but [...]

Headline of the Week: Dimitart Boobatov

The tabloids come up with their fair share of pretty poor headlines in regards to football, with you being able to predict what is coming following a particular result. “Stevie 3″ when Gerrard got his hattrick, “Top Drogs” when Drogba has a good game, or “Fabtastic” for Fabregas, or “Wayne’s World” for Rooney.
