In a league where managers have enhanced their reputations like Sir Alex…Continue
Nine years ago Swansea City was languishing at the bottom of the football league for the first time. They narrowly escaped condemnation to non – league obscurity at the expense of Exeter City on the penultimate day of the season. Fast forward to today and The Swans are sitting pretty on 8th spot in the Barclays Premier League.

On 15th April 1989, 96 people went to a football match and never came home.
They didn’t go to war, they didn’t go out looking for trouble, they didn’t go into hospital due to illness, they went for a day out to support the football team that they love.
They never returned.
I was at Anfield on Tuesday night for the Merseyside derby and it was my first visit since the aftermath of the Hillsborough tragedy.
I’ll never forget the first time I went…Continue

It’s coming. Like it or not, its coming.
For all the traditionalist’s out there – or as I heard them described over the weekend, “Luddites” – cover your eyes and ears now because sooner rather than later, video technology is on its way.
The weekend’s events at the Reebok have perhaps expedited the process, with the FA very quick to point out that it’s not their fault but FIFA’s, that we haven’t got video technology already.
I personally am against it. I may be a…Continue

This week David Moyes reaches 10 years in charge of Everton Football Club.
A momentous achievement for so many reasons.
With only Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger with a longer tenure, Moyes and indeed Bill Kenwright should be applauded for the longevity of his appointment.
Everton were in trouble when Moyes came in and it was a remarkably brave decision for Kenwright to place his trust in 38 year old manager who although relatively successful at Preston, was…Continue
Hi, I'm Dave Pundit. I don't often comment on football north of the border, mainly because it's awful. And let's face it no footballer of any note has come from there. But I was chatting to my old mate and Liverpool legend, Graeme Souness, and he was telling me about the plight of Rangers, and do you know what I say? Sod 'em. They've got themselves into this mess, they can get themselves out. They…Continue

So, Roman Abramovich’s twitchy finger strikes again as yet another Chelsea manager bites the dust. Despite the pattern of recent history it was a little surprising that Andre Villas Boas didn’t last until at least the conclusion of the Champions League tie with Napoli. But alas, like many before him, AVB felt the force of Abramovich’s wielding axe. You would think that the Russian billionaire might be feeling a little bit embarrassed about disposing of the man he hired just eight…Continue

After calling the cast of The Only Way Is Essex "retards" and Paris Hilton "the embodiment of everything I don't stand for", you can always count on the QPR midfielder for a diplomatic, well-rounded opinion.
Joey Barton is a talented footballer, though perhaps not as great as he thinks he is, yet off the field he…Continue

So off sails another Chelsea manager into the sunset, after an all too short tenure, counting his Roubles
Hardly a surprise was it? It was always a case of when rather than if, as the season progressed and following defeat to West Brom the axe was perhaps inevitable
I’ve said before, that I thought the AVB appointment was one destined for disaster and it’s proven to be the case. The job was simply too big for the young manager and was the wrong job, at the wrong…Continue

Instead of me telling you what is right, I will asked you to debate with me.... Order these men, arguably the midfielders of a generation... but who was the best?
I am not calling any of them bad players, they have been hero's for there clubs and have all done their best for England... but who is the best? and Why? How do you measure…Continue
