Spurs - Things Can Only Get Worse?

Robbie Savage, this week, predicted, on Radio 5 Live Football Focus, that the top three would finish as follows: Manchester City, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United respectively. It would be difficult to find a non-Man United fan that wouldn't disagree with the his prediction of Manchester City to finish in 1st place, however, to predict Spurs to finish 2nd must surely be a prediction that has come from Robbie Savage's heart, rather than his head.

Well that was a surprise. Wayne Rooney’s appeal against his 3 match UEFA ban has been partially successful, with the ban reduced to 2 games, with the third suspended.

Whichever way you look at it, Rooney – and indeed Capello’s England - have been exceptionally lucky with the decision.

What was the basis of the appeal? He was sent off for kicking out and violent conduct comes with an automatic 3 match ban. Surely it was cut and dry wasn’t it?

All I Want For Christmas Is The Destruction and Annihilation of International Friendlies...

It's been a long time coming has this post. It's been brewing for a long, long time, and like a rather good gassy blow-out, it's about to appear and make you all run like hell.

 

I'm going to talk international football.

 

For those of you still with me, thankyou. I know how dull it is, and that's my point really. International football used…
