Bill Kenwright - Better The Devil You Know?

What now for Bill Kenwright and Everton?

 

As we approach the 8th year of theatre impresario Bill Kenwright’s tenure as Chairman of Everton Football Club, never have so many questions been raised about the direction of the club and his ability to steer the club through the toughest of financial times, in living memory.

 

It’s common knowledge that as a football club, Everton is “For Sale” but potential buyers or indeed investors, seem thin on the…

How I got into football

I started going to football matches to get over a broken heart.  At age 47 I fell truly, madly and deeply for Cooper - a builder with a heart of gold, blue eyes, broad shoulders, a white van and little else to his name. He rescued my flat from ruin.

We had an affair which lasted less than three months. People talk about crash and burn. This was burn and…

Dark Days For English Football May Very Well Return...



Yes, before you all ask, it still hurts. My chest aches and I can't bear to look at the papers. City have really hurt me. I am very tempted to use some rather foul language, but hey, this is a family blog. Supposedly...

 

Well what a week it's been for the Premier League! Shocks galore, big wins, small wins - not to mention a few naughty words used on…

Would NFL Europe Succeed This Time Around?

This weekend, we see the pomp and circumstance that is the NFL return to London to play another game at Wembley, this time between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Chicago Bears. And with it comes the hope from the NFL franchise owners that a big pay day in Europe will become an even more regular thing.

 

The NFL began to bring…

Simon Cowell for England Manager

After Capello's damp squib of a team crashes out of Euro 2012 in typical fashion, a loss at the first knockout stage after an undefeated group stage of two 0-0 draws and a single 1-0 victory. It's the end of the golden generation, several big names retire from the national side. Including one surprise, the still relatively young Wayne Rooney, who due to his suspension only played the single match. Only one man can rebuild this…

Ross Barkley: A bright future

Ross Barkley. The name, as the weeks pass, is one that is becoming more and more familiar to English football fans outside of the Merseyside region; for those on the Merseyside have known about this young man for a long time.

          Whilst trying to obtain other peoples opinions on Barkley, I decided to speak to an Everton supporting colleague of mine, who, quite simply, said that “he has all the attributes to become a more complete player than any other Everton academy…

Today, I'm going to write about my second sporting passion - Formula One. And how Sebastian Vettel has not only completed the sport, but is also well on the way to potentially dominating, and ruining it too.

You can't teach an old dog... The story of Fabio Capello's transformation

For all the recent talk of the transformation of Fabio Capello, I expected so much more from him. From everything I've read recently, Fabio is not the same man as he was in 2010. Taking his team to the World Cup he made all the wrong decisions. His handling of the captain's armband (passed to Ferdinand in name but allowing Terry to control in reality), his desperate attempts to bring back Paul Scholes at the last minute with the addition of Jamie Carragher, the insistence on Rob Green and…

How To Become Winners In Five Easy (Maybe) Steps

Now, before you start reading this, put Carlos Tevez completely out of your mind. Send him out the door in your brain. Done? Good.

 

As a Man United fan, this post could potentially come across as biased propaganda designed for you to hate the blue side of Manchester. But, it won't - in fact, I want to praise them. Strange, I know, but sometimes…

Roasting at Rovers...an afternoon in the sunshine



The mercury was still climbing as I arrived in Blackburn. Having found a great parking place purely by luck I strolled down towards the ground with other fans. Sky blue was far more in evidence than the famous royal blue and white halved shirts of the Rovers. Red and Black was the second most predominant colour.… Continue
