Outside the Box – Football on TV: Golden Oldies at Sky prove to be Masters

The legendary American comedian Bob Hope once quipped, “Middle age is when your age starts to show around your middle”.

Premier League Team of the Decade (2000-2009)

This is a difficult team to compile because it would be so easy to let bias drift in and allow players that are dominant in the latter part of the decade more credit than players that were just as important a few years ago. So I decided to use the teams produced by the PFA as the teams of the year ...

Geographically close, two of Greater Manchester's four Premier League teams will meet on a surprisingly warm late spring afternoon.

1013: Premiership hall of fame: Matt

by : Chris Sherrard Every club has their own cult hero, the player who meant that bit more to the fans for what they did and stood for on the pitch. Southampton’s cult hero competition is no contest; Matthew Le Tissier is out on his own. Saints fans took Le Tiss to their hearts as soon as he broke...

920: Premiership hall of fame: Gian

by : Chris Sherrard Gianfranco Zola lit up the Premiership stage for seven years. The only regret anyone who saw him play could have is that he wasn’t here longer. I defy anyone to recall a telling mistake the genial Italian made during his spell in English football. He was one of the most precise ...

919: Premiership hall of fame: Ian

by : Chris Sherrard Ian Wright was one of those players that defenders must have hated to come up against. Not only did he fight for ninety minutes with such enthusiasm and commitment, he was also a brilliant striker. One of the finest this country has produced in recent years. The Arsenal legend ...

727: Premiership hall of fame: Paul

by : Stephen Orford As Wolverhampton Wanderers creep ever closer to the Nationwide hole from whence they came, the possibility of retirement for one of their more famous players looms ever larger.

704: Premiership hall of fame: Pete

by : Chris Sherrard There have been some excellent goalkeepers in English football over the years. From national team ‘keepers like Shilton, Banks and Seaman to today’s stars of Cudicini, Given and Brad Friedel, this country has been treated to some of the very best stoppers the game has produced. ...

623: Premiership hall of fame: Denn

by : Chris Sherrard Lay down all challenges, the Dutch master has arrived. Arguably the most majestic player to have graced the Premier League, Dennis Bergkamp is one of those players that everyone enjoys watching. From the moment he set foot on Highbury’s finely manicured surface in 1995, he has m...

633: Premiership hall of fame: Paul

by : Dave Thrilling While his wife was facing her fear of snakes in the jungle, George Best was on a bar stool facing the prospect of an early grave. The tales of drink, lies, deceit, fear and despair that have plagued the former Manchester United magician’s life have similarities with another Iris...

587: Premiership hall of fame: Roy

by : Chris Sherrard Don’t scoff! You may not like the man but Roy Keane the player is one you would definitely want in your team. Don’t lie. He is. He has been the driving, barracking no-nonsense heartbeat of the Manchester United team for more than a decade now and is still doing the business. Can...

581: Premiership hall of fame: Eric

by : Chris Sherrard Mention the name of this flamboyant Frenchman to any Manchester United fan around when he ruled Old Trafford with a proud swagger and they’ll tell you that Eric Cantona is truly the modern day king of football. Mention his name to supporters of Leeds United and you’ll get a co...

580: Premiership hall of fame: Tony

by : Chris Sherrard If you are going to have any man leading your team out into a crucial domestic or international match the chances are that you’ll be calling on Tony Adams. The legendary Arsenal battler was the driving force behind many a fine display. Is he the best defender we have had in the ...

578: Premiership hall of fame: Alan

by : Chris Sherrard ALAN SHEARER In the first of a potentially endless series, we take a look at the names and personalities who have lit up the premier league over more than ten years.
