The excellent weekly radio football show Cafe Calcio returns to the air next Friday, and for
this series one of its regular features will be the Street Pharmacists Guide To Football. Here's
co-host Chris Roberts on the more-ish effects of the Premier League for the supporter of a
By Jon Levy It's nice to return to the "pages" of TYAC after a morale boosting win, and that's
exactly what the Canada match was. The Yanks weren't perfect, but they were definitely good.
Bobbo's boys got the result, and the taste of horror show against Spain out of everyone's mouths.
Those two effects were [.
I'm Bert Tiddle and you've never heard of me. I cemented my position as England's greatest ever
penalty taker when I scored with anÂ inadvertentÂ chip after Coventry City's 1987 FA Cup semifinal
against Leeds. After I did, Dave Bennett told me that we won in extra time and there was no
Most Fridays find us cracking open the bubbly at Kickette HQ by Noon sharp under the adage of
"it's 5 o'clock somewhere." In honour of Ladies Day at The Grand National today, we started the
booze flowing this morning with a bowl of Wheatabix in order to keep a steady buzz on while viewing
photos such as these.
Every week the horror show that is the Galaxy just keeps getting worse. Would you pay a minimum of
$30 to watch the worst team in the Western Conference? Coach Bruce Arena repeated the enigmatic
comment he made last week to The Washington Post again to me Monday, insinuating he
A horror show from Arsenal goalkeepers Vito Mannone and Ćukasz FabiaĆski condemned Arsenal to a
3-1 defeat to Olympiakos and proved once again that Arsene Wenger must sort out the team's
goalkeeping problems. Unbelievably bad, pitiful and far from reliable. How else can one describe
the current crop of Arsenal goalkeepers currently vying for Wojciech [.
Chelsea's winless run continued after the Blues were held to a 1-1 draw with Genk in their Group E
UEFA Champions League clash courtesy of Genk forward Jelle Vossen's strike. After their 5-3
horror-show against Arsenal on Saturday, Chelsea coach Andre Villas Boas was hoping for a positive
reaction from his men but got the [.
Chivas USA finished their season the way they had lived it with a static back four that gave
goalkeeper Dan Kennedy kittens against a Seattle Sounders team that was looking to settle in at a
stadium they hope to see a lot of in the next 30 days.
This was horrific "The Walking Dead" stuff and whatever Kennedy screamed at his defense during
this one was insufficient.
Mike Ashley visited Newcastle on Thursday and he was seen at the game yesterday looking happy
enough whenÂ NewcastleÂ were 5-0 down. Mike Ashley in Newcastle last Thursday That's more than some
of us were feeling, after Newcastle's horror show in the first half, but it's only one game andÂ
NewcastleÂ are still in 6th place in [.
Leon Best once again got the goal forÂ NewcastleÂ yesterdayÂ in Newcastle's fine 1-1 draw at Villa
Park. Leon Best after scoring his goal yesterday he looks thirsty! After a bit of a horror show
last Monday night, well at least in the first half at QPR, Newcastle loooked a much betterÂ sideÂ
yesterdayÂ and played some good football.
And now, the triumphant return of the Musket Rounds!
So it turns out that the SB Nation dashboard has a "clippings" tool. Basically, I can create a
links piece by going to the desired pages, "clipping" them, and then collating them into a list and
filling it in with useless babble to make it look good.
Let's forget the Bolton horror show for a while and focus on some potentially good news - Algerian
attacking midfielder Ryad Boudebouz has confirmed once again that he wants to leave Sochaux, which
could be good news for Liverpool, who arguably need to sign another goal-scoring attacking
Uruguayan defender Sebastian Coates underwent a baptism of fire at Liverpool when he was
unexpectedly thrown into action during the 4-0 horror show at Tottenham a couple of months ago.
Fans have seen glimpses of the player in action since, but what does Liverpool Assistant Manager
Steve Clarke make of him so far?

Arsenal fans will be reasonably content to see Abou Diaby return to the team LANS (Like A New
Signing) the enigmatic Frenchman will probably provide further cover for the midfield behind Mikel
Arteta and Aaron Ramsey, but many Gooners will remember Diaby's infuriating inconsistency, from his
red-card horror show at St.
Under-fire Blackburn Rovers boss Steve Kean boosted his chances of staying at Ewood Park by
masterminding a shock 4-3 win over Arsenal, who produced another defensive horror show on the road
as they conceded two own goals.

comments and perspectives - even links to other board comments of interest re QPR matters (on and

Yikes.Â A horror show from Fulham, the sort of performance that really causes fans to question
the team's direction, second league game of the season or otherwise.Â Wolves are a handy side, of
course, and were at home, but we'd expect to have given them more of a game. We'd expect to not
play so carelessly, so.
The final match of the New York Red Bulls' long four game road trip finally came to an end in
San Jose. After a strong second half by the Baby Bulls in their US Open Cup round three matchup
with the USL Pro's FC New York, you would think it would inspire the senior side to do well against
Good morning! After that nightmare of a game @Seattle, the Red Bulls will be looking to get back to
winning ways today, as they visit the Chicago Fire (2:00pm ET, ESPN). Let's see how both teams come
into this one.
The Fire come into this one with just two wins all season and firmly entrenched in 6th place of the
The group stage of EURO 2012 has come to a conclusion, and the end product is a quartet of
thrilling quarterfinal matches. With at least one goal in every game thus far, this summer's
tournament is the first edition of the EUROs to not feature a 0-0 result in any match in the group
stage. Here are the quarterfinal matchups with complementary analysis
Although Colorado and Philadelphia experienced much different outcomes in their week one
match-ups, the teams had quite similar tactical approaches. Under new coach Oscar Pareja, Colorado
used a 4-5-1 (or 4-1-4-1 for those of you who like to play in the numbers sandbox) with Jeff
Larentowicz at the base of a midfield triangle.

(Lancs). If ever you want to see a textbook example of "a game of two halves", get the DVD of this
game. though personally, it's a video horror show I'll be steering clear of. United went into this
game sitting [.
Quite a fun game in the end, but our relatively easy start of Villa-Wolves-Newcastle-Blackburn
hasn't left us overflowing with points and until given evidence to the contrary we must assume that
we're in for a long, hard season. Manchester City visit next, and that's frightening. They're going
to hammer us.
Please be advised that this post is all in good fun. Except for our comments about Carly's
footwear. We take that snark very seriously.
Just as we got to rethinking our admiration for Carly Cole's storied disinterest in being
fashionable, she (and, more importantly, hubby Joe) have gone and done this, leaving any promise of
her lovely Liverpool makeover in limbo.
Cesc Fabregas's night was not done after his critical pass contributed to the winning goal. He
was brought down moments later by Marcelo's vicious scissor tackle for which the Brazilian received
a red card sparking a full out conflagration on the sidelines as Fabregas lay writhing on the
My word it's been a horror show atÂ Swindon this season. Having treated their fans to a play-off
finalÂ last term, the Robins have suffered the fate that can so often befall a losing finalistÂ
andÂ are staring in the face of fourth tier football after a largely forgettable 8 months. Whereas
Millwall, their Wembley opponentsÂ in 2010, have managed to keep their squad intactÂ and aren't yet
