Match Of The Week: Manchester United 3-0 Tottenham Hotspur

Old Trafford has a swaggering confidence about it this evening. A new sponsorship deal with a package delivery company will be bringing an eyebrow-raising amount of money into the club and, perhaps more importantly as far as the supporters are concerned, less than convincing starts to the season for Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool will have…

Rainbows, Wanderers & Hibernians: The Start Of The New Season In Malta

The new season in Malta is just about to begin, and Paul Grech is here to tell us all about what we can expect there over the next few months. When a league changes format, heated debate and criticism is likely to follow.  When the rules are changed midway through a season, you can also…
