Posted by on 8:46 am in Latest, Video | 0 comments

For the second part of our Non-League Videos Of The Week, we have two matches from the Blue Square Bet Premier Division. At the top of the table, Wrexham are continuing to hold Fleetwood Town at bay and, while Fleetwood had a Lancashire derby match at home against third placed Southport on Boxing Day, Wrexham, who are now owned by their supporters, made the relatively short trip to Shropshire to play another supporter-owned team, AFC Telford United, and over four thousand people turned out at New Bucks Head for the match. Our second match...

Refreshed and reposed after a break for Christmas, we’re back this morning with a double dose of Non-League Videos Of The Week. We have a couple of matches from the Blue Square Premier coming up a little later this morning, but we are starting off with five of Boxing Day’s matches from the Blue Square South. Leaders Woking have pulled clear at the top of the table, and they attracted a crowd of over three thousand people for their match against Farnborough, but the chasing pack were also in action and we have derby matches between...

Posted by on 5:50 pm in Latest, Opinion | 0 comments

Christmas is nearly upon us, so it is time for us to sit back by a roaring fire, pour a glass off eggnog and enjoy the first part of a festive morality tale which comes to us courtesy of Jude Ellery of Man & Ball, Football Farrago and, most recently, Strange Bounce. In part one of this reworking of Twas The Night Before Christmas, entitled A Visit From St Meredith, we are visited by a rather familiar figure for this time of year. The other two parts of this trilogy will be available on Strange Bounce next week. Our thanks go to Jude for...

Posted by on 12:47 pm in Finance, Latest, Non-League | 1 comment

On the pitch, Kettering Town have picked up a little of late. Two consecutive draws have lifted them just out of the relegation places in the Blue Square Bet Premier and, even though the club’s transfer embargo remains in place, they even managed a full substitutes bench their match against on Tuesday night. However, while manager Mark Stimson may be be getting somewhere close to achieving alchemy on the pitch, the club’s financial situation continues to be a source of major concern going into the new year and, whilst a home...

John Terry Meets The Crown Prosecution Service

Posted by on 5:51 pm in English League Football, Latest | 0 comments

We all knew that an announcement was coming and, somehow or other, the decision reached would have been surprising, no matter what it was - a reflection, perhaps, of the fact that this particular story should have twisted and turned in the way that it has since it first became apparent that something happened at Loftus Road during his team’s match against Queens Park Rangers, two months ago. John Terry, the captain of Chelsea Football Club and the England national football team, has been charged with “threatening, abusive or...

An Extraordinary Statement From Liverpool FC

Posted by on 8:37 am in English League Football, Latest | Comments Off

On the details of the case itself, we will have to see the full details of the FA’s investigation before passing any comment. We can, however, say with a degree of certainty that the reaction was as hysterical as might have been predicted and that oil has been poured onto an already raging fire by an official club statement from Liverpool Football Club itself which the club may yet come to repent at leisure. There can also be no doubting that the disciplinary action taken against Luis Suarez after having been found guilty of misconduct,...
