‘The expectancy levels outweigh the realism,’
Paul Lambert boldly stated in reaction to his sides loss to bottom of the table Leicester.
There is an argument that too many Villa fans are living in a time that they haven't actually experienced, a time when the name Aston Villa meant something, a time when it was a team to be feared... not only in the England but across Europe.
Well England crash out of a tournament at the quarter final stage again... on Penalties again... Whilst we are in the tournament everyone is full of hope, then minute the we are dumped out we are surrounded by the "told you so's" and the the overly critical with the benefit of hindsight.
So what's it all about? To me its like a broken record... "We need to copy .........." (fill space with relevant successful team)... this is absolute tosh by people who should know better and…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

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
This is an odd one....
I’ve heard many so called "football experts" have their say on this, and as yet none of them can give a reason for their opinion. What am I talking about? Older players playing for England…
The issue has once again been brought up with Paul Scholes showing the kind of form that makes you forget he’s in his late 30’s. The subsequent rumours that Scholes may be tempted out of international retirement fuelled by the his recent return (with…Continue
To Protest or not To Protest that is the question....
I find it a tough call, we all want a winning team, but we want to see our youths given a chance.
We want to see our club be on a sound financial footing but we want our club to be spending monies on transfers...
Lets put the game to bed, quite simply, the reason we all love and hate football. United dominated without ever looking likely to take the game away from their fallen rivals. Liverpool took their chances and won. Well done, that's football no problem with that, Kenny isn't the first and won't be the last to send out a team on the defensive against United, and it won't be the last time United will be sucker punched by team keeping it tight and playing on the break.
I had £5 on…Continue
A weekend of FA Cup Action... So it should be easy to pick a few winners... but i'm not so sure...
Another Weekend, another round of Premier League Fixtures,
|Premier League Fixture|
While the Luis Suarez racism case has enveloped the club for the past couple of months, intense scrutiny of performances on pitch and within the club have become somewhat slacker.
Summer signing Stewart Downing who arrived from Aston Villa for the staggering amount of £20m, appears to be a player going through a serious crisis of confidence. The disparity between his performances on the pitch and his value off it are so great at the moment…Continue
Welcome to WC’s Betting Blog, I will be taking a look at the forth coming Premier League (for now only) Football fixtures you may just want to have a little flutter on…
January is a funny month, and one if I'm honest I've always found difficult to win any money in, its the nitty gritty of the season, a time when the League isn't won, but it certainly can be lost. There is lots of unrest, lots of uncertainty over players and managers futures, invariably lots of injuries, the…Continue
Well I’ve made a partial move. I will be dual posting on 606 and SportWitness.
I’ve searched around and, well simply put, the others are all dross and set up to make money.
SportWitness has been set up on a simple, clear platform and with a few tweaks I think it could easily grow to become a massive forum.
Anyway on with what I hope to become a regular, irregular blog stroke article.
One which I aim to become a quick round up of recent events and…
