Match Of The Week: Manchester City 1-2 Everton

Carlos Tevez, then, has withdrawn his transfer request after what are apparently called “clear the air” talks with the executives of Manchester City Football Club.

Scottish Match of the Week: Alloa 2-3 Airdrie

Central Scotland actually missed out, at least up to Saturday, on the latest snowfalls which have caused such problems to the north and to the south over the last few days.

More Awards, And More Thanks To Give

We came, we saw, we drank too much, probably. Wednesday night saw the inaugural Not One Hundred Percent Awards for football bloggers at Hoxton Hall in London, and Twohundredpercent was, as you might expect, represented. In between canapés, more free booze than could possibly helpful and persuading Clive Tyldesley to sign an original Dotmund piece…
