AFC Bournemouth’s Local Paper Banned – Chairman Edddie Is At It Again

The relationship between a local newspaper and its closest football club can be a mutually beneficial one. Football remains the one item on the news agenda that is more likely than anything else, and a sizeable proportion of its sales will come from those that want the daily drip of coverage that they might not…

Who Are The Horsemen Of The Rangers Apocalypse?

The dizzying raft of exposes emanating from investigations into twenty-first century Rangers (and a few years before, if ex-director Hugh Adam’s revelations are at all credible) is truly now doing my head in.

Fabrice Muamba

Shortly before 6.15 yesterday evening, White Hart Lane began to fall silent. As the possible scale of what had happened started to disseminate, first around the ground itself and then out, through cathode ray tubes and broadband connections, a respectful hush descended over English football. The FA Cup took last place last night, as our…

Now That Rangers Are Saved

The “Blue Knights”? Really?? I don’t suppose Rangers fans who are backing former director Paul Murray’s bid for the club care about how ridiculous his consortium’s media moniker sounds, now that Rangers are saved. At least they won’t care, as long as Murray and the various Rangers supporters’ groups attached to his bid are more…
