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...

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. The versatile defender was a passenger in a golf buggy that lost control and Tate will have to watch the majority of the club’s rollercoaster adv...

Will the new season throw up any shocks across Europe's top leagues?

Here we go again ... Its that time of year again. Your club has had some embarrassing/great results in pre-season friendlies and the anticipation builds up as the new season approaches, but what can we expect from the big leagues around Europe? Some countries, of course, have already kicked off, su...

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...

Roma howler leaves Chelsea free and clear

The pre-match talk that Laurent Blanc had moulded a good Bordeaux side (on the way to becoming manager of the French national side) was rudely shown up tonight. It could be that the English teams are now so dominant that Chelsea were really playing a good side - but at times it was hard to see that....

4388: Manchester United vs Roma: Rom

by : Antony Melvin Roma looked lively in the opening exchanges and the ever-willing Totti went close with a dragged cross shot. But after Carrick scored the shooting became more and more speculative - almost as if Roma only felt they had to hit the target to score. Then United started mounting co...

4372: Champions League: Manchester U

by : Bill Urban A goal in front with a man advantage, the semifinals beckoned to Roma. Under those circumstances, a 2-1 victory might be counted as a disappointment, particularly the concession of an away goal to a fabulous Wayne Rooney finish. With all the ball and momentum, Roma lost their nerv...


4368: Champions League Preview – AS

by : Hugh Larkin Manchester United break new ground by travelling to Rome for their Champions League quarter-final. They have never encountered Roma in their long European history. The ‘giallorossi’ may be a club from the capital city but they rank well behind other Italian sides in the history of...

4340: United In The Path of Totti’s

by : Hugh Larkin When Manchester United step out in the Stadio Olympico to begin their Champions League quarter-final they will be facing a Roma team dominated by the personality of one man- World Cup winner Francesco Totti. Like Alessandro Del Piero at Juventus, Totti has remained a constant with...

2528: Serie A: 'Pitiless' Capello de

by : Haby Assevero It’s the sort of thing that as a rival fan can make you sick. Here you have your team playing well, standing toe to toe with the defending champions and you’re thinking that a draw is a definite possibility. Who knows you might even nick a goal and escape with all three points. ...

2411: Serie A: Death or glory as Rom

by : Paul Watson For football fans in the Italian capital last season is best forgotten. Once again Roma and Lazio were equally insipid, failing to deliver anywhere close to expectations and finishing eight and tenth respectively. However, this term has seen the two clubs in contrasting form. Lazio...
