Outside the Box – Football on TV: Di Canio attempts to form his first impression while West Ham’s Brady dispels hers

Fascist, egotistical, divisive, authoritarian, plain bonkers; these words are ringing around all our ears right now thanks to a recent media storm it’s been impossible to escape from. No, not the death of a former Prime Minister yesterday, although I can see why you’d think that. Instead it i...

Prem Relegation Battle: Could history repeat?

Not since the 2001/02 season have all three promoted sides from the Championship – or indeed the old First Division - survived the following year playing with the big-boys. So, nearly a decade-on could history repeat? Newcastle have adapted the better out of the trio and don’t look out of place in ...

Blackburn Rovers: Who will replace Ince at Ewood Park?

Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle United are two of the biggest clubs in the Premiership. However, they currently find themselves in serious trouble at the foot of the table and are in grave danger of becoming the biggest relegation casualties in recent years.

5058 Premier League– bottom half ge

by : Olly Wright With the current international break and England’s unexpected lifeline, attention has been turned away from the Premier League for a couple of weeks.

by : Antony Melvin “Of course it's down to money, if the Old Firm had any serious aims to stay then they would not have blocked moves to change the circumstances of the structure of Scottish football, be it in the monetary sense or the league structures. They laid the table, now they have to stay a...

1966: Premiership: Only an idiot wou

by : Chris Sherrard It’s a dangerous game, making predictions. I know only too well how easy it can be to be made to look stupid by sticking your neck on the line. The easy path to take is always sit on a nice, cosy fence and watch everyone else fall off. But that wouldn’t be much fun now would it?...

1928: Premiership: Best relegation b

by : Simon Cole “The team that’s bottom at Christmas always gets relegated.” The myth that’s actually a proven statistic? Maybe not for long. When Bryan Robson took over a West Bromwich Albion team rooted to the foot of the table, he publicly stated he believed his new side could survive. Deep dow...

by : Alex Kay Where England do look genuinely impressive and bursting with ability is up-front. Despite my earlier irony, Wayne Rooney really is something close to a footballing genius, even if his vocabulary could do with some work. Alongside him, Owen might not be Vanderlei Luxemburgo’s first cho...
