Normal service is now to resume after the somewhat chaotic Christmas and New Year matches, but we’re going to spend a little time catching up with the last of the festive highlights from over the course of the last three days or so. We have six matches lined up for you this evening. From the Blue Square Premier, we have highlights of the matches between Wrexham & AFC Telford United and Forest Green Rovers. In the Blue Square South, we have highlights of another derby match, this time between Tonbridge Angels & Bromley, and this...

An Unhappy New Year At Darlington

Posted by on 3:01 pm in Finance, Latest, Non-League | 0 comments

A new year may have begun, but familiar problems are already starting to make themselves clear with conflicting stories concerning the well-being of Blue Square Premier club Darlington. A club that has already had two spells in administration in the last decade could well be headed for further trauma following reports in the local press during the break between Christmas and the new year, but upon what were these initial reports based, and can a consortium group which has since announced itself get the assent of the club’s current owner...

The Suarez Report: The FA’s Commission Finally Has Its Say

Posted by on 10:05 pm in English League Football, Latest | 6 comments

At one hundred and fifteen pages and a little over forty-four thousand words – getting on, for the purposes of comparison, for two and a half times the size of Karl Marx’s Communist Manifesto – at least no-one can argue that the Football Associations independent commission into the allegations of racist language levied against Luis Suarez wasn’t thorough. It is now twenty-four hours since the full report was released by the FA, and the new year means that rigorous analysis it in the mainstream press may be delayed by a...

The Premier League title race, we have been told repeatedly over the last couple of weeks or so, is back on. Since getting knocked out of the Champions League by FC Basel, Manchester United have started to rediscover some of their familiar imperiousness, with sixteen goals in their last four Premier League matches – including five in two successive matches – while Manchester City have, with a defeat at Chelsea and a lacklustre draw at West Bromwich Albion, shown signs of chink in their previously impenetrable-looking armour. On...

Mungo S04E05

Mungo McCrackas has been in some scrapes before but now he’s wanted by the US government for accidentally assailing the Commander-in-Chief’s pods. It’s only a matter of time before they bring their huge resources and intelligence to bear and flush him out into the open. However, as we all know, football is more important than life itself and the FA are trying to get to him first. One way or the other he’s going to end up selling something to somebody and that can only be good news for the economy. I’m backing...

Evans & Crawley Town: Very Little Season Of Goodwill

Posted by on 6:10 pm in English League Football, Latest | 1 comment

Seldom has there been a less savoury title for a specific football match than The Split Testicle Match, but this is the name that has been given to the Boxing Day League Two match between Crawley Town and Gillingham, in which the visiting side’s┬áChris Whelpdale suffered an injury, of which only the most cursory of descriptions may have sent many males wincing and clutching their groins. Even this most unfortunate of injuries, however, seems likely to be overshadowed by a story concerning the events of the match and, most specifically,...
