Call me crazy but I think this article might be further evidence to show that the Guardian's Paul Hayward is a secret EF follower. My suspicions were first aroused by an article he wrote not long after my third post in the 'football musings' series. Here, he discusses Arsenal and Manchester United t...

Matt's Football Musings: Part IV

Yesterday afternoon I had the unexpected pleasure of being told by one of my geekier team-mates that our 6-a-side team (for which we have a squad of 10 players) was statistically more likely to win a game, and score more goals, with myself on the pitch than off it. This was despite the fact that thu...

Sometimes Safari will come up with something similar, along the lines of 'server could not be found'.

Forgot to mention it earlier but his guest appearance in The Simpsons was fantastic.

Youve got to be joking. One of those was a dive. 2 Were playing for the foul, which in someways is a skill, and the others were legit bad tackles. The CL final one. Youve got to be kidding me mate, and even worse the one where he was tackled and was falling yet still kept going and had a shot. a) T...

Oh how I loathe James Corden.

This one isn't the funniest I've ever seen but I like it anyway.

Comfortably the best English right-back of his generation. Not only a good defender but an excellent crosser of the ball and a good captain. He had stopped performing to his usual high standards two or three years ago, as injuries took their toll, but I'm sure his influence will be missed around Uni...

It's not just Blackpool, I think Wolves have been fined more than once for this. Absolutely ridiculous; it only seems to affect the smaller clubs, United and Arsenal rotate all the time without getting fines. Apparently at the end of last season there was a review in which the teams were allowed to ...

I've seen that statistic about the cost of squads before, but I would counter it with this one - Messi, Xavi, Iniesta, Pique, Puyol, Valdes, Busquets, Pedro, Bojan, Jeffren = £0. That is potentially ten out of Barca's starting eleven. As ratherton quite rightly says, success is not measured by how w...

Another deeply disturbing rumour - Nicklas Bendtner to replace Carroll, for £17m.

Transfer deadline day, 31st January 2011

Crikey O'Reilly. Here are three of the juicier rumours currently circulating. 1) Torres may or may not be joining Chelsea for £50m, or maybe less, or maybe cash plus Anelka, maybe in a helicopter. Who knows. 2) Meanwhile having agreed a fee for Suarez Liverpool have also made a bid of £35m for Newca...

It's all very interesting, not long left in the transfer window now so there may not be time for Torres to leave. Seems odd that Torres handed in a transfer request right at the point when Liverpool were investing in the squad in the sort of way he has asked them to do for years. Perhaps he himself ...
