Defoe inspires new-look England to opening Wembley win

WDKF at related • 0 views
At half time in England's opening European qualifier of the summer against Bulgaria, the title to this article read "old habits die hard". What a difference 45 minutes can make. The pre-match feeling was one of nerves, anxiety, apprehension. All the better then that Jermain Defoe's opener should come so early in the game, just [.

On first sight, I didn't really like the draw Spurs got. I was going through the draw live while chatting on ESPN Soccernet's live chat and prior to our name being drawn out, I was hoping for Group B. However, having been drawn in Group A with defending champions Inter Milan, Werder Bremen and FC [..

Spurs looking to balance their priorities : Fan view

In my ideal world, Spurs would pip Arsenal for the EPL title, reach the CL quarters, and win both the Mickey Mouse and FA Cup. OK I can dream! But one of the toughest thing about being a fan and a football blogger is being subjective about your own team's expectations. Last season, in my [...]

Fabio Capello decided to tackle a couple of bottles of wine whilst naming his latest England B team squad to face Hungary next week.

Bristol City have confirmed that they have captured the signature of England goalkeeper David James on a free transfer. James has put pen-to-paper on a one-year deal with the club, a move that is a sure signal of The Robins' ambition this season. James, who turns 40 this weekend, took over England's goalkeeping mantle at [.

The Home Grown Criteria

The new regulations stating that each of the 20 Premier League teams can only register 25 senior players, of which 8 are home grown, by September 1, which will be eligible to play in the club's League fixtures has brought about some confusion. Here is my understanding of the home grown rule. I will not [.

Blackpool may have difficulty in shaking off the ‘jokers’ tag, but could it play to their advantage?

WDKF at related • 0 views
Blackpool is best known for its pleasure beach, arcades, and thousands of bald-headed, sunburnt British tourists that flock to the seaside each year. You wouldn't automatically associate Blackpool with football, and you certainly wouldn't have predicted this time last year that they had a realistic chance of reaching the play-offs, let alone actually gaining promotion [.

Fernando Torres' future is still very much up in the air. He may stay, he may go. One member of the squad that Roy Hodgson can be certain wants to leave Anfield this summer is Argentina captain Javier Mascherano who is unsettled on Merseyside. It is believed that Mascha wants a reunion with ex-Reds boss [.

A little less conversation, a little more Torres please: Why Liverpool’s prize asset has no choice but to stay at Anfield

WDKF at related • 1 view
Whenever Liverpool fans read a news headline boasting the name Fernando Torres, their heart usually sinks and they let out a dull sigh of resignation. "Torres to Chelsea", "Torres to Manchester City", "Torres to Real Madrid". Same old, same old. But don't fret Reds' fans, I'm here to inject a bit of optimism into the [.

The highs and lows at the blue side of Manchester

Fans of the Citizens are not very different from fans of Spurs. Deprived of success over the years, we also have to come to terms with our immediate rivals gaining success after success, although in Man City's case, they've probably had to deal with it for the best part of the last 30 years and [...]

WDKF at related • 2 views
Chelsea central defender and Real Madrid target Ricardo Carvalho has stated his desire to join up with former-boss Jose Mourinho at the Santiago Bernabeu. Carvalho also described Mourinho as the "greatest manager in the history of football". This got me thinking. Who is the greatest manager ever? Below are the three men I consider to [.

Can Manchester City win the Premier League or is it a case of too many cooks?

WDKF at related • 0 views
I'm certainly not the first person to start a discussion as to whether Manchester City will be good enough to challenge for the Premier League title this season, nor will I be the last. Until it is mathematically impossible, and until either Chelsea or Manchester United lift their 4th or 12th respective trophies, people won't stop debating.

New decade, new era for Manchester United, but what exactly will the future hold for the next generation?
