Ashes: Time to burn

December 7, 2013

As a fan of English cricket you learn not to ever be too brash, bold or boisterous in your celebrations and predictions, as the next disappointment is never far off and the old adage about being nice on the way up most definitely applies, but I don’t think many were expecting quite such a painful demolition in the winter Ashes series. So far Australia have taken apart the English side like an angry kid with an educational Christmas toy and when they finish off their victory in the section test the howling is sure to start in the English press.

How to support your team. . .

November 29, 2012

Even without any sort of virtual soapbox or moral high ground it would not be a challenging task to write once more about football fans in damning and negative terms in a week where West Ham have been forced into an apology to Spurs and the Chelsea ‘faithful’ decided to boo a manager with two La Liga titles and a Champions League win under his belt before a ball had been kicked. It was particularly ironic to hear Tottenham acting hurt given the pure filth the supporters of that club have subjected Arsene Wenger and Sol Campbell to down the […]

Wales v New Zealand: Warren’s Return

November 22, 2012

Welsh rugby has never been the most stable, but when Warren Gatland turns his back for five minutes and Wales lose five games in a row you do get the impression the Kiwi is either a coach of such rare class and quality that he can turn mud into gold, or that his assistant Rob Howley is capable of reversing such a procedure. I’m sure Gatland always planned to return for the visit of his native New Zealand after time off through injury and doing a bit of work for the Lions tour, and I’m also pretty certain he would […]

Spend, Arsene!

October 25, 2012

Arsenal held their Annual General Meeting this week, with the fans given a chance to question the board and hopefully receive answers regarding the future spending plans of a team that has seen their best players leave on a fairly regular basis in recent years. Without sounding too critical it is fair to say Ivan Gazidis was rather guilty of using his training as a lawyer when answering, or rather failing to do so, questions from the crowd, and other board members were interrupted for the same reason. The overwhelming feeling at the end of the meeting appears to have […]

City in Amsterdam: Ajax ho!

October 23, 2012

All the old money/new money argument that goes on in the world of football right now is very amusing to any fan with a modicum of knowledge about the roots of the bigger clubs who are now complaining about the PSG’s and those rich folk, but the fact of the matter is no team has suffered so much as Ajax from the professionalization of the game. The mid-nineties saw and Ajax team built through youth development and extension of Cruyff’s thinking conquer Europe, and even the modern Barcelona side can’t match them for the sheer number of stars produced at […]
