Loathe as I am to wish to be seen to flogging the proverbial dead horse, events at Hillsborough on Saturday, where a crowd of 300 people demonstrated against the sacking of manager Paul Sturrock, felt almost like a nostalgia trip. You don’t see this sort of thing any more. Particularly when you take into account…
Quite asides the myriad of other objections that I hold towards it, one of the more dispiriting things about midweek European football is the way that it buggers up the weekends after it. In the Premiership, there were no matches of any major significance. Chelsea, thanks to a judicious amount of profligacy in front of…

It was, relatively speaking, an interesting weekend. Things at the top and bottom of all of the divisions are starting to settle now, and this pleases me. What is there to read about and pore over when anybody in any position in the league can jump seven or eight places with a single win? We’re…
It’s been a filthy week, hasn’t it? Well, I mean for most of us. It hasn’t if you’re Croatian, Northern Irish, or some other nationalities, but if you’re English, Scottish, Welsh, Irish, Spanish or French, it has (there are probably others too on either side, but I can’t really be bothered to look that closely…
