2014/15 Premier League Week One Fixtures

Jul 30th, 2014 at 23:12 The Executioner on Other Football 2 comments 868 views

It's hard to believe that the new season is almost upon us with the first of thirty eight weeks of fixtures. There has been plenty of comings and goings and many millions of pounds spent in the couple of months since Manchester City lifted the title for the second time in three years. I think most people will agree that the title race will be fought out by the same …

Southampton FC Tea Lady For Sale

Jul 29th, 2014 at 12:46 Hogsback on Other Football 2 comments 749 views

Southampton FC Tea Lady For Sale She pours an excellent cuppa. She can supply all the many different kinds of tea and she might even offer a biscuit to go with it. You can be forgiven for thinking that Liverpool will come in for a big offer for the tea lady as they seem to be buying everyone else from Southampton. Southampton have not just sold off their silver, but anything not nailed …

Swiss Super League (belated) Preview

Jul 28th, 2014 at 20:58 garethp1981 on Other Football 0 comments 703 views

Whilst I do take an occasional interest in Swedish and Irish football, these leagues are really just what I use to fill the gap football-wise in the summers where there is no World Cup or Euros tournament. Since there was a World Cup this year I have barely looked at either of these at all. For me, it is the leagues starting around this time of the year that interest …

Premier League 2014/15 ante-post preview 2 - early views on the Top Goalscorer market

Jul 27th, 2014 at 20:49 tbuckley on Other Football 4 comments 2653 views

Premier League 2014/15 ante-post preview 2 - early views on the Top Goalscorer market It's 3 weeks to go until the new, massively anticipated Premier League season starts, 5 weeks until the transfer window shuts and so anything is still possible in terms of transfers and clearly the signings of high profile, massively talented strikers may still come into the Premier League but I think there are real merits in …

Are Hull City Doomed Before the Season Even Starts?

Jul 27th, 2014 at 13:15 KanKeano on Other Football 5 comments 1227 views

Are Hull City doomed before the season evens starts? This is the Elephant in the room. As a fan you want your football club to qualify for Europe but the Europa League is a second class citizen of a competition compared to his more prestigious brother, the Champions League. The Europa League can only be described as one long slog around the more remote parts of Europe with little financial incentive …

A Fans View of Everton

Jul 24th, 2014 at 20:03 undertherobe on Other Football 5 comments 644 views

It doesn't seem right that the new season is almost upon us. The time since Liverpool completely fluffed their lines against Chelsea and Crystal Palace has flown by so quickly, in part due to a World Cup that promised so much with it's exciting start but delivered very little (for me anyway). So, with another season just a handful of preseason games away, what of my team, Everton? Second Season Syndrome Second …

Premier League 14/15 - Getting a Head Start Over the Bookmakers

Jul 24th, 2014 at 10:07 danbradley on Other Football 1 comments 1897 views

With the new season just a few weeks away, punters will soon once again be bombarded with hundreds of markets and hundreds of games to bet on. Some will look at the new season with trepidation, as a lack of form and statistics can leave one feeling underprepared when it comes to staking one's hard earned money. I prefer to look at it in a different way though. Remember, the bookmakers have …

Where now for England after a poor world cup

Jul 20th, 2014 at 11:18 meoldmate on Other Football 4 comments 551 views

The world cup has come and gone, with Germany being the world champions of football. Brazil world cup was a thrill in itself, with goals, action, mishaps and shocks, it had it all, kept every football fan glued to their television sets or computer to see all the action on a daily basis, until the closing stages, when it spreads out over a the week, until the final game. Now what, for …

Ludogorets (Razgrad) - the story

Jul 20th, 2014 at 00:49 botev1921 on Other Football 1 comments 3476 views

I continue my coverage of the Bulgarian league with a short look at the only team that makes some impression in Europe and arguably the only team resembling some sort of professional sports organisation. Ludogorets (Razgrad) managed to take the country by storm in a matter of two years and had a big European break on the third. How exactly this team came to exist in a country, which outside …
