We're probably a bit slow on the uptake of this one but its worth reporting again anyway for
those of you who may have missed the story originally, but ex Man United midfielder Owen
Hargreaves, who is now a free agent having been released from Old Trafford a few weeks back, has
resorted to uploading videos to YouTube in a bid to prove his fitness again.
Paul Scholes: a tribute to a player born in the wrong country - originally posted on
In the last 15 to 20 years the best central midfielder that I have seen â€” the most
complete â€” is Scholes. I have spoken with Xabi Alonso about this many times. Scholes is a
spectacular player who has everything.
It's Friday, so must be time for some shameless podcast related self-promotion. Taylor from Man Utd
Offside and myself have been hosting the Total Football Soccer Show on WRIR, and posting the show
as a podcast on Podcast Offside. This week's show (first broadcast on Thursday, October 22) was
completely lacking in professionalism.
Time for a bit of shameless self-promotion. Along with Taylor from Man Utd Offside, I've been
co-hosting a public radio show titled the Total Football Soccer Show. We're eleven episodes in, and
have been posting each show on Podcast Offside. I wanted to bring the 11th and most recent episode
to you attention here on [.
My feelings on Cristiano Ronaldo have been there for all to see. Whilst it's always been obvious
he's a bit of a tosser, he's always been our tosser. I like United having players other
fans hate because it's enjoyable to see how wound up they get.
To me, he felt less like ours after his behaviour last summer.
It seems that Alan Pardew isn't the only Newcastle manager who blows his own trumpet. Joe Kinnear
while at Newcastle For some strange reason, there's an interview with former Newcastle manager Joe
Kinnear, in the Newcastle Journal this morning, and Joe goes into the self promotion game himself.
This is what Joe said today, [.
Arsene Wenger is a man of many talents but modesty is not among them judging from his most
recent outburst. In the aftermath of the announcement that Arsenal had made a record profit in the
last financial year Wenger took time out to draw attention to his record for developing young
Howdy folks. No, this isn't a mirage, but it's me. Tendering a quiet explanation as for my
lengthy absence. I'm not really going to be posting here much do to time commitments and the need
to be paid even a little bit for writing.
But since I got my first start here at the ol' Arsenal Offside, I wanted to drop by as I will be
doing from time to time to do a bit of self-promotion and updates.
First off, a confession: I don't like biographies. In particular, I don't like player biographies.
Too often they're pretentious, ego-massaging,bank account boosting exercises in self-promotion that
offer little in the way of genuine insight. Unless, of course, you consider tales of lads' nights
out or those of puerile banter as falling under the category of insightful.
Zlatan, in a bit of self-promotion stop it for his new book, did an interview with Gazzetta
which was published this morning. It doesn't disappoint. The Fiver offers a few excerpts, while the
rest can be read here in Italian with a magic password (requires registration).
He, Mourinho and Balotelli should probably have a talkshow when all is said and done.
We aren't quite to Hot Time In Old Town's one-year anniversary (September 14) so that makes a
couple of new changes and announcements around here all the more exciting. First off, if you like
Hot Time in Old Town, there is now an iPhone app for that. Well technically there's an app for SB
Nation but so close to HTIOT's birthday?
Football strip on the cards Back on 4 July when Paraguayan model Larissa Riquelme vowed to strip on
the pitch if her beloved national football team won the Copa America, it seemed likely to be
another shameless attempt at self-promotion on the back of a major football tournament (she had
made similar declarations at last [.
In a shameless act of self promotion I am pointing you the way of another blog - Royal Blue Mersey
- where I wrote a tribute piece to the legendary Duncan Ferguson. It is part of the new Everton:
Classics section of the site detailing memorable players, seasons and matches.
I'm sure I'm not the only Evertonian to list big Dunc as their favourite player (especially those
of a certain age) and certainly couldn't fit all of his special moments in one blog so if you have
any special Ferguson memories you would like to share feel free to comment either below or over at
Royal Blue Mersey.
The 100th episode of Winning Ugly is quickly approaching and because we love shameless
self-promotion on this show, it's time to start doing just that!
If you haven't heard, the 100th episode will be LIVE and unedited. That's right, no safety net,
What are we thinking?
For your consideration, we give you the first Winning Ugly 100th Episode Promo!
A little in the way of apologies and self-promotion.Â I've been missing 'round these parts for the
better part of a month and I'm sorry.Â I started several Monday Morning Manager posts, but didn't
finish any of them.Â And while I've continued to pour everything I could into playing the game, I
just didn't have the time or attention span to also coherently and entertainingly write about it
Nice bit here from Dave giving Dick a dose of his own medicine.
Pia has announced the USWNT roster for an upcoming friendly vs. Japan ... 5/20 and 5/23 ...
meaning that 17 US players won't be with thier WPS teams for a bit - but for the most part won't
miss any matches.Â I was interested to see that, while the Breakers lose 4 players, one of them
