Newcastle United: Statistical look at the rise and fall (and rise again)

It is fair to say that Newcastle United have had their fair share of ups and downs.

From the highs of winning promotion to the Premier League in the 1992/1993 season, to losing 2-1 to Scunthorpe United in the Championship and everything in-between. (more…)


Yours, disillusioned with the modern game

I’ve got to be brutally honest, I’ve struggled to find anything worth writing about since the end of last season.

I purposely didn’t want to get caught up in the Euros as I knew that it was going to end in despair. I think we all did. I mean, it’s not me being negative, it’s not me being defeatist, I think the word I’m looking for is realistic. Plus I have the fail safe that I’m half-Italian, not that it got me any more success.

How do you solve a problem like Barnet?

Five games into the league season and Barnet are in a familiar position, down at the bottom of the league.

The last ten seconds of the 2011/12 Premier League season is one that will live long in the memory of the fans from both Manchester clubs.

Manchester City ended their 44 years of hurt without a title; and for United losing out on the 20th title to the noisy neighbours on goal difference — having seemingly won the title from their rivals with a comfortable 1-0 win over Sunderland — made it a season finale that will never be forgotten.

There’s method in the magic at Swansea City

There’s something uniquely Mediterranean in the air on the west coast of Wales at the moment, as Sam Allardyce and Co. found out on their visit to The Liberty Stadium on the 25th August.

The ‘Swanselona’ brand has established itself as a household name, Micheal Laudrup has seemingly advocated the work done by his predecessor, bringing with him three imports from La Liga, who have slotted into the side seamlessly, and in the case of forward Michu, to scintillating effect. (more…)

Bristol City: A home win, good seats but pricey grub!

I went to the Bristol City v Cardiff City game on the 25th August. I must say at the outset that I am not a fan of either team!

However, I live in Bristol and I go with friends who are ardent Bristol City fans. So it is as much about catching up with friends as it is watching a game of football. What a nice way to while away a Saturday afternoon. (more…)
