Tottenham: Where Did it all Go Wrong?

Tottenham currently find themselves 5th in the table with only one win in their last nine matches. Tottenham who were 3rd in the league just before Christmas and seemed to be the only team capable of keeping in the touch with the two Manchester sides, who went on to run away from the rest of the challenging bunch. Tottenham, were, for many people playing the most attractive football in the league including Sir Alex Ferguson, and after 20 games they only failed to score…

The Necessary Evil That Will Change Football For Good

Another weekend, another call for technology to be introduced into real-time decision-making in football.

On Sunday, Chelsea, 1-0 up in the FA Cup semi-final against Spurs, were awarded a goal for an attempt that did not cross the line. The list of similar incidents that have stoked the calls for goal-line technology can go on for a very long time.…

Why are there no women coaches in top-level sport?

Could you imagine Hope Powell pacing up and down the touchline at Old Trafford?  Watching on and directing the likes of Rooney, Giggs and Evra.  No of course not, this could never happen you say.  She doesn’t know enough about the game, she doesn’t have any respect from the players, it just wouldn’t work.  But why not?  The question of why there are not as many black coaches in sport is often pondered upon throughout the sporting world.  Many argue that they are not given a fair opportunity,…

The inspirational story of the Leeds United Ladies team

Leeds United might be in the Championship, but they are still one of the most well-known clubs in the country, but how much do people know the story of the Leeds United Ladies team? They’ve been on probably an even more emotional journey than the men’s team, and 18 months ago they didn’t have a team, a name, they weren’t even a club.

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.

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…

Ireland’s Euro 2012 destiny in their own hands

With just Tuesday’s friendly in Liege against Italy to negotiate before their Summer break, Giovanni Trapattoni’s Republic of Ireland squad can feel satisfied with their weekend’s work. With six games played and four left to contest in their campaign in Group B of qualifying for the 2012 European Championships the Irish squad know that their passage to Poland and the Ukraine is entirely in their own hands.
