The Azza Blud Replacement

The Azza Blud Replacement

It’s obviously time to move Azza Blud on. Many moons ago I remember Henry Winter referring to Chapeltown’s favourite son as, “wing heeled.” This was ahead of a World Cup or a Euros. Here we are in 2014 and the dream is over. As per ***** and Thud, it’s just another case of what might have been. This season Azza ... Read More »

Lamela Scandal

Lamela Scandal

The saga (and saga it has very definitely become) of Erik Lamela has surely come to a head. Last seen in a Spurs shirt in late December, our club record signing made only 9 appearances before he was sidelined with an injury that would ordinarily mean an absence of perhaps a few weeks. Tops. Now, we know that THFC’s idea ... Read More »

Tim Confirms It

Tim Confirms It

Working with Sherwood must be a barrel of laughs. Minus the laughs. In fact, I’d imagine it’s more like being shoved into a barrel and hearing Tim and his braying mates say things like, “I hope you can swim, mate!” like whilst hammering in the nails. The banter. Prior to the West Brom game, Tim was asked for an update ... Read More »

Klopp A Loadda This!

Klopp A Loadda This!

Good morning where you are. I’ve been working from bed this morning, which I guess only serves to confirm my status as a thoroughbred whore. The super soar away Sun! Things look better in The Sun! You’d certainly need to be suffering from sunstroke to believe Paul Jiggins’ latest offering. Jurgen Klopp is now our number one target, reveals the ... Read More »

van Gaal Talks DIDN’T Take Place Say Press Association

van Gaal Talks DIDN’T Take Place Say Press Association

“Interesting” piece from the Press Association… Manchester United have dismissed reports linking the club with Holland manager Louis van Gaal. Reports have claimed United representatives, including one of the Glazer family who own the club, have met with the former Ajax, Barcelona and Bayern Munich coach. Press Association Sport understands United are surprised by the reports and are insisting no ... Read More »

Close Shave

Close Shave

“Nothing lasts forever”, is what they tell you in the SAS. Looking at this morning’s papers, I’m less inclined to quote Andy McNabb, and more reminded of that line in The Color Of Money, “It’s like a nightmare, isn’t it? It just keeps getting worse and worse.” The season will be over soon, and the St. Alban’s rude boy will ... Read More »

We keep doing it. It is frustrating to say the least. Credit to West Brom, they started very well and we didn’t, and it is not good enough We have to try to stop that somehow. They didn’t have to work very hard for their goals today. At 3-0 down we had a mountain to climb, but I always believed ... Read More »

Oscar Pistorious Has A Better Defense Than Spurs

Oscar Pistorious Has A Better Defense Than Spurs

What did we learn this weekend? Not much. Oscar Pistorious has a better defense than Spurs, and he’s also a better shot. Speaking of corpses with their brains ballooning from their skulls… If Sherwood was managing Barcelona, they’d suddenly look as if they been lobotomised. He really hasn’t got a clue. The overwhelming concern has always been his ability to ... Read More »

van Gaal Hijack, Naming Rights & A Denial

van Gaal Hijack, Naming Rights & A Denial

According to De Telegraaf, the joint chairman of  Manchester United’s board of directors, Joel Glazer, met yesterday with Louis van Gaal. The article gives no more detail, simply citing “an insider.” This blog reported on the 5th of March, that the offices at The Lane were busy at 6am on that morning, and that a deal was done to secure ...

Past Tense

The pre match presser was a quare one alright. Watching Sherwood talk, it was evident he was was using a crib sheet of some description. And compared to his usual free wheeling, St Alban’s rude boy patois, his opening remarks were clearly scripted. By whom, is largely irrelevant. It’s been an honour to manage this great football club and I ... Read More »
