Is this the worst football kit ever?

Players and fans are supposed to wear their shirts with pride, but sometimes the tops are so hideous they make you utterly ashamed. Arsenal fans have complained about their Dennis the Menace away kit, Manchester United supporters have hit out over their new tartan home kit and some Liverpool fans a...

Four reasons why Stuart Pearce left David Beckham out of the Team GB squad

It has been reliably reported by the BBC, following on from sources at The Times, that David Beckham will not figure in the Great Britain Olympic squad. At one point the superstar looked a shoe-in for a swansong tournament but Stuart Pearce has always been his own man. Here are four reasons why he...

The top 10 dives in football history

Manchester United’s Ashley Young and Chelsea’s Didier Drogba have caused controversy over the past fortnight by diving to win penalties and going down quicker than your average High Street hooker. Ashley Young started it all off by winning a cheap penalty against QPR’s Shaun Derry, when the tough m...

Beckham, Best, Henry or Cantona: Who were the coolest footballers to ever live?

We would all like to be footballers, right? The money, the women, the cars. Oh, and the playing of football. That’s pretty good. But some are cooler than others. Too cool, even. So cool they make everyone else look like silly, awkward, emasculated chumps. So who were the 10 coolest footballers to e...

Racism is in the spotlight but what is being done to tackle homophobia?

The FA stamped down on Luis Suarez’s racism towards Patrice Evra. And it’s quite right that they did, isn’t it? For when we look back into the past, and certainly in football’s past, we see things that are shockingly vile. In the seventies and part of the eighties, black footballers were subjected ...

Beckham Strikes Silverware And Puts The Heat On Stuart Pearce

Who writes your scripts? is the famous comment by Graham Gooch about Ian Bothams legendary ability to take centre stage throughout his career. Something similar applies to David Beckham and he gave another example on Sunday by helping LA Galaxy win the MLS play-off final. This is probably the Engla...

Can Beckham And The Galaxy Become MLS Champions?

Remember 2007? Thats when David Beckham first went to Los Angeles Galaxy in Major League Soccer. Four years later hes still playing for LA - which is longer than some commentators thought it would last. It hasnt all been plain sailing for the superstar. His understandable desire to play for Milan a...

Could ex-players as referees ever work?

Ah, referees. Nasty men in black, the forever stern officials of our game, often painted to be rather humourless beings who get out of the house on Sundays to escape their nagging wives and only serve to annoy us. There is a theory, which Roberto Marinez brought up back in January of this year,...

Can any player, including Messi, be considered 'the greatest'?

Ah, the Champions League. Bringer of drama, stopper of dreamers, platform for Ray Wilkins to say ‘my word’ 50 hundred thousand times. And there are other things that are nearly always discussed, certainly when seeing the two dominant Spanish sides play. The great debate has moved from trying to ...

Top 10 bizarre injuries to footballers

Swansea City’s vice-captain Alan Tate is set to miss most of the Swans’ debut season in Premier League after breaking his leg in a freak golfing accident.

What five things would you do before the season starts?

Isn’t it normally New Years Eve when you get a top 100 favourite moments of the year or top 500 best movie credits or some other poor excuse for a programme? Well I thought I would also use it as a poor excuse for an article, but rather than boring you all with a list consisting of 100 or more items...

Tevez, Modric, Nasri and co - Quit your moaning!

One of the lessons that I had drilled into me as a youngster is the old adage “asking never gets”. Maybe you too can recall a time when you asked your mum for a Penguin or something and she trotted out some half-cocked lecture about it being polite to wait to be offered blah, blah, blah. Well clearl...

Football in 3D - A new risk to average attendances?

The world has evolved and developed a lot since the 1950s with the invention, evolution and development of everything from bladeless fans to electric cars and high definition broadcasts and beyond, but what have the boffins responsible for 3D been doing for 60 years since its inception? 3D today i...

Footballers: Why don’t we flog them on eBay?

I have never been to Australia but I know two things for sure about the Land of Oz. One, they are better than us at almost every single sporting activity aside from football of course (although let’s be honest, the England team is not that much farther ahead than the Aussies at this point). Even the...

The frustrations of being a football fan

As football fans we are a pessimistic breed. No sooner have we finished dancing in the stands or in front of the TV celebrating our club’s promotion, championship, relegation avoidance or cup victory, we turn our attention to the next competition and start convincing ourselves football life will nev...

Beckham bows, Bale wows

OK, so the nation’s red-top readers might not be unified in touching an x-ray of his broken Achilles tendon this summer, but David Beckham’s injury and subsequent absence from this year’s World Cup rightfully dominated Mondays papers. Sure, his prospective absence isn’t anywhere near as pressing...

David Beckham deserves his luck in Milan

There have been a fair few comments suggesting that David Beckham somehow doesn't 'deserve' a shot at playing for AC Milan, and that he is somewhat lucky to have negotiated a 'timeshare' opportunity between LA and Milan. Perhaps the luck is the same luck that gave him a pop star face, but, on balan...

David Beckham has everything to gain in Milan

To read some comments on David Beckham it would appear that he is already finished. The truth is that he is fresh and rested from his time in America - and has the quality to thrive in Serie A. The acid test of whether players are actually finished is surely when good managers stop picking them. An...

England: Arsenal's Walcott, Galaxy's Beckham or Tottenham's Bentley - Who is the right man for Capello?

Saturday's World Cup qualifier with Andorra was hardly a classic but England, thanks to a brace by Joe Cole, got the job done. There wasn't too much for the England fans to shout about, but Theo Walcott was a shining light and has posed Fabio Capello a huge headache ahead of the Croatia game on Wedn...

4664: Beckham Returns to the Quarter

by : Hugh Larkin ”Our problems last season stemmed from dressing room unrest, so it's obviously a worry that it's going to happen again when you add someone as volatile as Bellamy to the mix,” said Matthew. “But he's apparently good friends with Gabbidon and Collins from being their international c...

4100: Beckham, the Galaxy, and Extor

by : Bill Urban Manchester United: If £20m doesn't land Owen Hargreaves there has to be some doubt that he will ever be a Manchester United player. If a similar big money offer for a defensively frail Championship full-back with a powerful left foot fails then the world has gone mad. Middlesbroug...
