Best and worst case scenarios for England in today's World Cup draw

The first thing to think about with next summer’s World Cup is the geography of Brazil, this not a country, it’s like a continent. The distances that have to be travelled are not like London to Dublin to Glasgow; it’s going to be more like London to Warsaw to Rome. The second thing to remember is t...


World Cup draw: Please can England get a crap group this time?

Im not a bitter Scot or anything, I would really love to see England win the World Cup - but as it is frankly not going to happen can we at least go into a group that we have no expectation of getting out of. Its not that I dont want Roy Hodgson to succeed; I think that he seems an honest and honou...

The Strange World Of FIFA: England Ranked Fourth In The World

It will come as something of a surprise to most fans who watched Euro 2012 that England came out of the tournament going up in the FIFA world rankings - not bad for two wins in four matches, one of which came against a Ukraine team who lie at 46th in the table. Ranking tables are always an untrustw...

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.

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...

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 ...

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...

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...

by : David Hulott Pachuca secured a notable first in December, when in beating Chile’s Colo Colo to win the Copa Sudamericana they became the first Mexican club to claim one of the two major South American club trophies (Copa Libertadores and Copa Sudamericana). The club is the oldest in Mexico, h...

4165: The Unfriendly International:

by : Bill Urban Bobby Convey- 5 Convey made an uncertain start, hesitant in his dribbling and nervous in general on the ball. His play improved after the interval, and his ability to hold the ball played an important role as the US strove to kill off the match. Should have scored after creating a...

3963: Mexico put their faith in Hugo

by : David Hulott Given how long and vociferously he has courted the job, the Mexican Football Federation’s recent decision to appoint Hugo Sanchez as new national team coach came as no great surprise. If only for the amount of carping Sanchez does from the sidelines, the powers that be probably d...

3893: Toluca’s double date disaster

by : David Hulott Fixture congestion is often cited as a ready-made excuse for poor results these days, with a couple of games in four days seen as pushing the increasingly pampered little treasures of the professional game well beyond any rational boundaries of human endurance. It could certainly...

The participants listed below may not have been the stars bu...

3087: Perfect preparation could pay

by : David Hulott With the World Cup finals still six weeks or so away, there will be plenty of national team coaches who will be casting envious glances in the direction of Mexico’s Ricardo Lavolpe.

2382: World Cup 2006: Mexico ready t

by : David Hulott Yet to say his form on the pitch has been so poor he no longer warrants a place in the England team is of some debate. Sure, there can be no denying his two errors resulted in two goals for Fulham last weekend. The first was very much a schoolboy error by failing to play to the wh...
