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 — the most complete — 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.

RoM Reaction To Ronalo’s Likely Exit

Republik Of Mancunia at related • 5 views

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, [.

SoccerLens at related • 2 views

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 players.

A quick update

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’s Book Tour Continues

The Offside at related • 0 views

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.

Duncan Ferguson - An Everton hero

Post Match Pint at related • 1 view
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.

A little in the way of apologies and self-promotion. I've been missing 'round these parts for the better part of a month and I'm sorry. I started several Monday Morning Manager posts, but didn't finish any of them. 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 very

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. I was interested to see that, while the Breakers lose 4 players, one of them isn't Lil.
