Re: The Finest Line

Yesterday I discovered what a fine line there is between success and failure. How close you can be to getting what you want, and getting more than what you want. In November, I sat my end of year national exams. Included in these exams were three scholarship exams - one in English, one in History a...

Gatusso is a complete tw** not to mention very lucky that Joe Jordan didn't lose his temper.

Connor Wickham Wonder Goal

The boy Wickham scored one of the best individual goals I've seen for a long time today against Sheff Utd.

He ran half the length of the pitch, beat 3 defenders and went round the keeper.

Not bad for a 17 year old.

Wolves fine was suspended and there was no 25 man squad rule in place.

Yet one more reason why the Premier League is not worth bothering with (unless you are a player of course then its very lucrative).

Gary Neville

The Man U and former England right back has just announced his retirement with immediate effect. He was definitely one of the most consistent defenders I've seen and apart from a couple of things when Ferdinand got banned for missing a drugs test, he was a model pro. I believe he is taking his coach...

It makes a mockery of the 25 man squad. If the Premier League had any issues with the players, they should have raised that when the squad was submitted. This is the same Premier League that allowed Man City to sign Martin Fulop as a keeper outside the transfer window as they didn't want to play the...

I beg to differ....along with the Financial Fair Play rules due to hit at the beginning of 2012. Wenger won't have to adjust, because that's been his policy from the start. These clubs that haven't spend wisely and didn't invest in their youth players will suffer. I'm glad we don't depend on going ...

Unfortunately, success isn't measure by balancing the books. If Wenger actually spent a small amount of money on a couple of players, Arsenal would walk the league. Instead he tries to pretend that his goal keepers are good enough and Bendtner is a forward and as a result they keep falling short. T...

Paul Konchesky has signed a loan deal with Forest :) Can't believe Carroll has been bought for 35m. He's not worth that, no way. Holy sh*t I know, the lad is clumsy as hell, he can score goals, but 35 million pounds? For Crying out loud... Might as well gotten Alan Shearer :lol: Let me upload a few...

Torres to Chelsea confimed for 58 million euros.. 175K a week too. Ireland from AV to Newcastle on loan. Adam very close to Liverpool move. Luiz on the way to London for a last minute push. Micah Richards offered 20M from Liverpool(assuming they'll move Johnson to LB permanently). Eidur Johansson f...

You may be aware Torres only handed in his transfer request after Ipswich missed out on signing Charlie Austin from Swindon. Coincidence? I think not.
