A team not from England in the English Premier League? Whats that I hear you say?

For those readers from around the world who may not be versed in UK geography, there will be a very special team playing in the English Premiership next season. A team that isn't actually from England.

This may surprise a few people but Swansea City is a team from Wales, a country famed for a sport where people throw around a ball shaped like an egg, famed for actors Catherine Zeta Jones and Anthony Hopkins, Tom Jones, cockles and laverbread and now finally, a Premiership football side.

Robert Pires

Robert Pires is in line for a shock return to football with Thai Premier League champions Muangthong United. The 37-year-old midfielder is currently training with his old team Arsenal after being released by Villarreal.

It appears Pires is unlikely to follow in the footsteps of Sol Campbell, who was given a short term contract by Wenger last season after training with the team on a similar basis.

I really have nothing against Bolton, but the day when they get relegated will be like a holiday to me. The Trotters have somehow managed to avoid the drop for the last two seasons but not thanks to their quality, that's for sure. With another Premiership season around the corner, I really hope that this will be the season when they finally go down.

“Bobby Robson became the heart that English football wore on its sleeve”

"Bobby Robson became the heart that English football wore on its sleeve." The words are a touching epitaph from the beginning of David Lacey's tribute to Sir Bobby Robson in this morning's Guardian, after the footballing great passed away yesterday. But they only do him partial justice. Best known in England for successful spells as a player then manager at Fulham, West Bromich Albion, Ipswitch Town and Newcastle and for his eight years at the helm of the English national team his feats overseas often go undocumented, or at best overlooked.

England’s women aim to outshine men in Finland

A report by the Commission on the Future of Women's Sport which the BBC's Gordon Farquhar blogged about earlier this month points out that just 2% of media coverage on elite sport focuses on women. Now I first got into writing about football by following one of my best friend's journeys through the matches, tournaments and politics of women's football in Oxford.

Imagine on Monday morning you get a phone call. Your company's biggest competitor is on the line, offering you exactly the same job but on twice the salary. What's more, they'll give you a couple of million quid as a sweetener just for signing on. Now don't get me wrong, I love my job. But you'd have to be a pretty brave or, to be frank, a pretty stupid man to hang up the phone.

Top 10 transfer targets you’ve never heard of

Every year Premiership managers conspire to spend millions of pounds on exotic sounding foreign players whose names have never graced the screens of an English TV. Last year it was Marouane Fellaini, a £15 million signing for Everton. And what's more, his tough tackling, willingness to play ludicrously out of position, and even more ludicrous haircut have made the Premiership a better place over the last twelve months.

Back in 2006, I interviewed Steve Tew at the New Zealand Rugby Football Union. At the time, he was the second most important person in All Blacks rugby. Now he's the first. We were talking about the impact the Pacific Islands have on New Zealand rugby, and he made a pretty convincing case for players from Fiji, Samoa and Tonga looking to come and play for the All Blacks as a way of improving their lifestyles while giving something back to their adopted homes.

A few eyebrows will doubtless be raised by Chelsea's decision to appoint an exotic continental manager with a poor grasp of English just six months after sacking an exotic continental manager with a poor grasp of English. Accusations were certainly cast about Luiz Felipe Scolari's ability to control the dressing room given his alarming accurate impression of an overweight Andrew Sachs in Fawlty Towers.

I've often asked myself what I'd be doing if I hadn't chosen my current career. For some, the answer to this question is easy. Take Peter Crouch. When asked what he would be if he wasn't a footballer, Peter famously quipped, "A virgin". For others, the answer is already obvious to many. If our man Harry Rednapp wasn't a Premiership football manager, he'd probably be a second hand car salesman.

If you were your country's top scorer with a healthy 35 goals in 73 appearances, chances are you'd be an established top league player in most countries in Europe. Add to that record a career that has seen you start out at Manchester United and take in spells at Leeds United, Sunderland and Fulham, you'd expect a pretty good record.
