Team morale is brilliant, there are no worries about that. The lads are the best bunch you will ever meet and they will get on with it.

*Auto post no 2* The World Cup is almost here. Football is going to dominate all the newspapers and tv coverage. The whole world will go football crazy. Well, parts of it will. We didn’t qualify. So instead of looking at our prospects I’m going to look back at “The Saipan Incident” of 2002. Because […]

Once In A Lifetime

Pelé Franz Beckenbauer Giorgio Chinaglia Carlos Alberto Rodney Marsh In the late 70’s and early 80’s there was an attempt made to launch football in the United States of America. Ultimately, it failed, but for a few years the New York Cosmos, a team owned by Warner, fielded some of the world’s greatest football players […]

When you look with your eyes Everything seems nice But if you look twice You can see it’s all lies

They are drilling for oil[1] out the back at work. Or round the side, depending on where I am. Direction is relative after all. It is a little annoying, but don’t worry, I’ll struggle through somehow[2] I’ll cope. Don’t you worry about me. Worry about poor old Arsenal instead[3] But it was a very good […]

I think I’d better leave right now

Strange thing happened when I was looking at the web stats today. It appears that someone got here by searching using the term koenigshklkoenigshklhafkljablerker. Yes, that’d be the made up word I used to describe the car on Top Gear on Sunday. Well, it made me smile. Last night saw Roy Keane’s testimonial. He played […]

Gawk all over de place

Holy crapola. They’ve gone and fired Roy Keane! Man Utd must be mad. i know he isn’t as great a player as he used to be, and certain comments he makes might not be exactly tactful. But lets face it Man U aren’t really doing all the well at the moment, they don’t have a […]

Green Street

    Just so you know, this film is called Hooligans, Green Street Hooligans and Green Street depending on where you are.

    Football has never really had a good film made about it, not that I’ve seen anyway. I mean most people enjoy that Christmas favourite Escape to Victory, but despite having Pele, the football isn’t really that good. Is Green Street any better? Football-wise, I’d have to say yes. But this film isn’t really about football at all. It is about the West Ham firm, the GSE (Green Street Elite), and football fans’ violence and how this all appears to an outsider.

Night of the Dolphin

Armed dolphins, trained by the US military to shoot terrorists and pinpoint spies underwater, may be missing in the Gulf of Mexico.

Experts who have studied the US navy’s cetacean training exercises claim the 36 mammals could be carrying ‘toxic dart’ guns. Divers and surfers risk attack, they claim, from a species considered to be among the planet’s smartest. The US navy admits it has been training dolphins for military purposes, but has refused to confirm that any are missing

It is going to be a case of everyone going to war, pure and simple

The build-up to this week’s football has begun. Ireland v France. Of course we will win :) And in order to help our team the journalists are already calling us the underdogs, because the Irish team simply cannot win a match that, on paper, they should easily walk away with. Although, obviously enough, this is […]

FIFA

The new world rankings are up on FIFA’s site. SO the question that must be raised is “You are kidding right?” Any football ranking system that puts the USA at number 6 must be seriously flawed. No offense US-ian peoples, but you don’t really do football [1] now do you? In any serious match between […]
