Real Madrid v Spurs – Redknapp Says With Friends Like Jose, I Think I Need An Enema

In the build-up to the first leg of their Champions League tie in Madrid, Jose Mourinho laid the sugar on so thick regarding his respect for his friend, Harry Redknapp, that diabetic football fans around the world were reaching for their syringes. Then, on Tuesday night, the sweet nothings whispered in Harry’s ear abruptly turned sour. Continue reading »

Superstitious? Everton, Arsenal, Newcastle & Wigan (?) Lead Freakish Prem Goal Barrage

Do you believe in astrology or numerology?  While I’m not devoted to either ‘science’, they’re always interesting topics for conversation.  I was born on the twelfth day of the twelfth month, which is coincidence enough to perk my interest in numerical relationships.  As for the stars, I’m either a Cat or a Rabbit, dependent upon … Continue reading »

Man United: Tales Of The Almost Beatables

It’s the second half of the season and Man United has yet to be beaten.  Already, there has been some talk of whether they can match Arsene Wenger’s Invincibles.  They consensus is that they are not as talented as that side, although that may be debatable.  If anything, they certainly seem more resolute than that … Continue reading »

Holiday Fixtures Report Card: Man United Refuse To Lose, City Fear To And Chelsea & Liverpool Can’t Help But

Ten Days.  Four Premier League matches.  A short stretch of time in the middle of the season, yet so much hanging in the balance.  It’s a run of games which can make or break your season, changing it for the better, destroying every good result which came before or, in its ambiguity, locking you into … Continue reading »

Undercurrents: Roy Keane Says Snub The Snood

Roy Keane is unhappy. This, in itself, is nothing new. The 39 year-old Ipswich Town manager is filled with enough curmudgeonry to fuel a starting XI of grouchy old codgers twice his age. What has him harrumphing this time, however, is quite amusing. With record freezing temperatures and inches of the white stuff blanketing the … Continue reading »

The Scouser Report: Mashing on Spurs, Steaua, Hodgson & Liverpool Fans

You’re damned if you do and damned if you don’t. That pretty much sums up Roy Hodgson’s current status with Liverpool fans.  For months, the Kop has pleaded for more open, attacking football from their manager. Against Spurs at the weekend, that is just what they got and we were treated to one of the … Continue reading »

The Scouser Report – Tottenham vs Liverpool

Whilst looking through the league table, earlier this week, it struck me that Liverpool currently have the exact opposite record at Anfield as they do away from home. Unsurprisingly, they are the only team in the top flight of English football that can boast such an ‘accolade.’  The Reds have been, quite possibly, the least … Continue reading »

The Scouser Report – Seems Like Old Times

It’s amazing just how quickly attention can shift. Just a week ago, the knives were out and so, seemingly, was Roy Hodgson. This week, however, there has hardly been a word on that front, with the Kop faithful seemingly appeased (for the time being) with the three points collected at Anfield last week against Blackburn … Continue reading »
