Wigan Athletic Bingo!

Since their last clean sheet – a nil-nil home draw with Portsmouth on 14th April this year – Wigan have played 6 Premier League matches, winning one, drawing one and losing four.  In the course of this disappointing run, the Latics have conceded 25 times. Eighteen of these have come in the last three games:…

Mungo S03E04

Mungo time again.  This week, our heroes bounce back from their opening day disappointment with a corporate gig at a dairy farm.  Peril, inevitably, ensues.  Fans of teams who have had a stuttering start to the new campaign may be able to take heart at the knowledge that there are worse things in life than…

Steve Evans: Football Manager. Convicted Criminal.

At Broadfield Stadium last night, Crawley Town beat Bath City in the Blue Square Premier to move up to seventh place in the table after four matches. A crowd of 1,252 people turned out to watch it – hardly, one might think, a ringing endorsement of the “Project Promotion” that the club has put in…

East Fife: New New Bayview?

It’s only a dozen years since East Fife moved grounds, from their old home at Bayview to the imaginatively-named New Bayview.

Many of the club’s fans however, are expressing a bit more scepticism, and on closer examination they may well have good reason.

Getting The Hang Of Football On The Internet

In no small part, the print media and the film and music industries both made the same mistake with the arrival of the internet. They both reacted to slowly at first to the new technology and both are repenting their tardiness at their leisure. The print media have been unable – yet – to find…

Sheffield Wednesday Wait & Wait

If Sheffield Wednesday ever want to get back to the Premier League, I suppose it makes sense to start acting like a Premier League club, and an established one at that. Unfortunately for long-long-suffering Wednesday-ites, their club seem to have chosen Liverpool as their role model this summer. Worst season in years? Check. Interminable takeover…

The Monday Night Match: Manchester City 3-0 Liverpool

Well, that’s one question answered, at least. Those that had been wondering how long it would take Manchester City’s diamond-encrusted team to gel this season have their answer, and it is quite a specific one – give or take a few seconds, it took one match and twelve minutes before the team clicked into place…
