Cup Controversy and Robertson bags Triple Crown

It’s been a busy week in the world of Sports! Just two days ago, we had a scandal at the World Cup Draw – comically named Cupgate – when France seemed to be given a free pass from the normal procedures and Italy landed in Pot 2. While this may have been circumstantial to the final draw, generally the weakest European team is moved there, but for some reason, France were given a pass. This was deemed ‘scandalous’ by Italians

Webber Retires and City knock Spurs for 6

Before we move on to the humiliating defeat Tottenham suffered today at the hands of Manchester City, we wanted to focus on the Brazilian Grand Prix which took place to day and marks the final race for one of Formula 1’s greats – Mark Webber. After an astonishing 11 years in Formula 1 racing, Mark Webber retired in a very respectable 2nd place behind his team-mate Sebastian Vettel, also setting the fastest lap for the day at 1:15: 436. It

Brazil on fire in Miami

With the 2014 World Cup on everyone’s radar, Brazil continued their preparation for the tournament in impressive fashion by beating Honduras 5-0 in Miami. We all know of Brazil’s attacking tendencies and capabilities, but what was even more telling was the clean sheet playing against a very physical Honduras team. Honduras managed to last for 20 minutes before inevitably conceding the first goal, created by a defensive error which saw Paulinho take possession of the ball to set up Bernard

Sunderland shock Manchester City

Sunderland beat Manchester City 1-0 at the Stadium of Light to continue the Gus Poyet momentum and shock City fans into thinking it may not be their year if their star filled team continue to drop points away from home.

Sunderland’s Wes Brown and John O’Shea had one of

Cardiff beat old rivals Swansea 1-0

Cardiff and Swansea met for the first in the English Premier League, for what was always going to be a tense affair between two South Wales teams. The only goal of the match came from a towering header from the Cardiff captain, Caulker early on in the second half. The win was exactly what the crowd wanted to make the clash something to remember, and the manager, Malky Mackay would have felt the same with all the uncertainty about his

Battle of the Blues

In what was one of the Premier League’s most anticipated fixtures, Chelsea beat Manchester City 2-1 in the most calamitous of circumstances to leave them still stranded outside the top 4 places. It took 33 minutes to get the first goal and surprisingly it was Torres who gets the credit for the set-up. Summer-signing Andre Schurrle tapped-in the first goal but it was a clever run past Gael Clichy and into the box by Torres that really made the goal.

Spurs recover from their earlier Hammer-ing

After a crushing 3-0 defeat to West Ham only four days ago, it will be at least somewhat of a reprieve for Villas-Boas to relax tonight after a well-earned 3 points came their way today, courtesy of a 2-0 victory against Aston Villa. It took just over half-an-hour to break the deadlock as Townsend, who has been magnificent in his World Cup qualifying games, got the first goal in the 31st minute. Albeit a little bit of a lucky drift

Spurs Gareth Bale looks to be heading for Real Madrid

All during the summer, it looked as if Gareth Bale would stay at Tottenham with the chairman Daniel Levy and Andre Villas-Boas stating that the player would not be sold under any circumstances. However, there has always been steady rumours and statements coming from the Spanish press, especially from the Marca, that the Welshman wants to join Real Madrid and club president Florentino Perez has already set aside £85 million for the deal. Up until now, there has been no

Chelsea make a move for Wayne Rooney

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has confirmed that he has made a bid for Manchester United Wayne Rooney. Jose has always expressed his admiration for the player and with the current strained relationship between Wayne and Manchester United, it is no surprise that Chelsea have made an offer for the English International. Manchester United and David Moyes have always stated that the striker is not for sale, and feedback from Old Trafford is that Chelsea’s initial offer has been rejected. However,

Newcastle’s Shearer and Kinnear feud ongoing

After the shock announcement of the appointment of Joe Kinnear as Director of Football in the past few days, and initial set of ill-judged comments coming from Kinnear’s mouth, one would have thought that he would have learnt the error of ways and keep his mouth firmly shut. However, the man seems to be deluded and not able to realise that he won’t win over anyone, especially the Newcastle faithful by continuing to mouth off, especially against the likes of

Stuart Pearce asked to leave Under-21 Manager job

Stuart Pearce has been asked to leave the post of England Under-21 Coach after six years in charge and an abominable campaign in the European Under-21 Championship. It must be stated that after looking at the England Under-21 performances, especially being beaten by Israel and to a lesser degree Norway, meant that any online betting for Pearce to continue would have been foolhardy and wishful thinking. When one looks as Stuart’s record as Under-21 Coach, it has to be said
