Arsenal – So far, so good

By David Edwards Arsenal supporters have had the unaccustomed experience of an enjoyable pre-season. No key players pushing to leave, deals already done for Sanchez, Debuchy, Chambers and Ospina and the possibility of a couple more signings before the end of August. Just to round things off nicely we put three past an admittedly rather disinterested looking Man City in the Community Shield. Whilst Debuchy, Chambers and Ospina all look good signings it’s the arrival of Sanchez that has generated...

The Next Class of 92

By Matt Allen The class of 92 will be forever held in the highest regard, not only by fans of Manchester United, but football fans across the globe. The very essence of producing youngsters from your own stable and watching them make the transition from academy to first team can reduce even the sternest of football fans to tears at their triumph. There is often a sense that "if that lad makes it, it’s like one of us is fulfilling our...

Aaron Ramsey's goal was good and it showed that the belief was there, but what I keep in mind is that it was a real team performance.” Ok not the best quote in the world, so here are his top 30 best lines... 1)[On Emmanuel Adebayor's stamp...

Classic Cricket youtube – Fast Bowling

By David de Winter – Sports Writer @davidjdewinter It could be the fact that I have very few friends or that I’m just a bit of a loser, but my idea of a good night in involves watching classic sport clips on youtube with a glass of wine in hand. Whilst other twentysomethings are busy interacting with other humans and generally socialising, I can be found scouring the internet for footage of Euro 96 or Prince Naseem Hamed in his...

England cricket back on track but only just

By Gregory Taylor So at long last the England Cricket team are starting to play well, but like most sports, one good result does not mean that England are back on track. It’s great that both Ian Bell and Alistair Cook did well and the new boys Jos Buttler and Gary Ballance put in a good shift, but there is still a lot of hard work to be done. Before people start saying critics of Cook got it wrong in...

Birmingham City Season Preview: A Journey into the Unknown

By Chris Brown @vivabrownie You’ve all heard the expression before. If an infinite number of monkeys typed on an infinite number of typewriters for an infinite amount of time…..could they write an article accurately predicting Birmingham City’s fortunes for the 2014/2015 season? Of course the answer for Lee Clark is ‘how much are these monkeys on?’ and ‘Can any of them play right back?’ The infinite monkey theory is often brought up in moments of philosophical musing and held alongside the works...

So the Macron Stadium it is Bolton

Sport News 24/7 By Henry Austin No longer will our football fayre be served up at “The Reebok” and there’s been a little bit of grumbling in Bolton about the name change. We’ve traded, some say down, from sportswear manufacturer Reebok, to well, sportswear manufacturer Macron. Admittedly, it’s always been a purpose built sponsored stadium, so the change will be less hard to swallow than having a new name foisted on you by a fat sportswear salesman and to most...

Liverpool, how do you solve a problem like Suarez?

By Andy Ollerhead I could start this article with something out of leftfield and try to wax lyrical about shaving foam for free kicks or the colour of the seats in the Upper Centenary Stand but there's only one question that matters in L4 this summer.. .How do you solve a problem like Suarez? An upfront £75 million in used notes from Catalonia's finest has certainly given us a few options but with a month left of the transfer window...
