The Premiership

What a great set of results. Liverpool win yet again (following good results against Arsenal and PSV); Arsenal continue to struggle, with some commentators suggesting they may miss out on a top four place – although in a couple of years time they will be demolishing the rest of the premiership with all their youngsters; […]

Football and more football

England were again shocking tonight. The result (3-0) against Andorra isn’t a disaster but no one seems to be feeling positive at the moment. The fans seem to have had enough and were giving some real abuse to Steve McLaren in the first half, which seemed a bit over the top. Things do need to […]

Cricket World Cup

As I mentioned in a previous post South Africa’s Herchelle Gibbs created world cup cricket history by striking six stunning sixes off a hapless Netherlands bowler Dan van Bunge in the Cricket world cup 2007! Even in a small ground it was still incredible batting. Other highlights/lowlights include Pakistan coach Bob Woolmer has died after […]

Another sporting weekend

Another great sporting weekend. One of the highlights has to be Paul Robinson’s goal against Watford on Saturday. That was his second goal in his career, and his first for Spurs. The Rugby was disappointing. England were never likely to win the RBS Six Nations title given that they needed to win by a clear […]

Cricket World Cup

England unsurprisingly didn’t win their first match in the World Cup, against New Zealand. You can see more details here. However, what a night with Herschelle Gibbs hitting six sixes in an over in South Africa’s World Cup win over the Netherlands.

Great sporting weekend

This last weekend was a great weekend for watching sport. England had a great game against France in the rugby. They are still a long way off being able to properly defend their World Cup title, but they did manage to get a good win without Johnny Wilkinson playing. This looks to be even more […]

Hammers are going down

How gutting – to be 2-0 up, then 3-2 up against Tottenham Hotspur and then to end up losing 4-3. Unfortunately that really seems to be it for West Ham. The Hammers are now 10 points from safety, with nine games to go, and are facing a run-in that includes fixtures against Arsenal, Chelsea and […]

Alan Shearer v Brian Clough

What a star Shearer is.

Henrik Larsson

Henrik Larsson has to be one of the best signings of the season. Alex Ferguson has shown he still has what it takes to get the best talent. But it is interesting that Larsson is not interested in extending the contract. Partly it seems he is keen to get back to playing in Sweden and […]

Mike Newell’s dodgy comments

Mike Newell is certainly courting controversy at the moment. On Saturday he managed to make some pretty stupid comments – criticising Amy Rayner, the assistant referee, and his chairman. He had now been asked to meet the Luton board and it looks like he has some explaining to do. It is sad that he made […]

Who’d be a goalkeeper?

After the Reading v Chelsea game who’d want to be a goalkeeper. Both the Chelsea keepers took quite big hits – with both ending up having to come off Chelsea finished the game with John Terry in goal! Check out BBC Sport’s report on the game. What is interesting is listening to the comments afterwards […]

Possible goal of the season

Robin van Persie scored an awesome goal on Saturday – a real contender for goal of the season – as Arsenal beat Charlton. It was a goal worthy of winning any match. Check it out:
