Mirko Bolesan at related • 0 views

Tottenham Hotspur joined the long list of clubs that will be looking for a new manager before the start of next season. After a successful period at the club Harry Redknapp was sacked as manager of Spurs. His car window interviews will be missed by the press who loved his "no-nonsense" style. His popularity with the press is evident from the BBC Match Reports.

NORWICH CITY SEASON REVIEW 2011/2012

Mirko Bolesan at related • 0 views

Norwich City had a terrific season under Paul Lambert. Grant Holt became a household name and an outsider for international glory as a possible member of Roy Hodgson's England squad. Unfortunately for the Canaries Lambert left the club at the end of the season to take over at Villa Park whilst Grant Holt handed in a transfer request.

Mirko Bolesan at related • 0 views

Pundits appear to agree that Wigan Athletic had a good season. Indeed, they had such a good season that Latics chief Roberto Martinez has become a pundit himself, sitting on sofas alongside Patrik Vieira and Roy Keane on ITV's Euro 2012 coverage.

FULHAM SEASON REVIEW 2011/2012

Mirko Bolesan at related • 0 views

I'm a big fan of Clint Dempsey. In fact, I'm a big fan of American soccer players. They always seem to be really nice guys. Demspey, McBride, Howard, Lalas, Cobi Jones... the list goes on.

Fulham's word cloud features Clint Dempsey heavily, in fact he was the most written about player in BBC match reports during the 2011/2012 season.

BLACKBURN ROVERS 2011/2012 SEASON REVIEW

Mirko Bolesan at related • 0 views

It's been a tough year for Blackburn Rovers. Steve Kean has led the side to a relegation back to the second flight and the halcyon days of Stuart Ripley, Jason Wilcox and Nick Marker must feel as far away as they've ever been.

The word cloud has been generated from all of Arsenal's match reports from the 2011/2012 season that were published on the BBC website.

21 year old Hal Robson-Kanu was an unused substitute for Reading in their opening league fixture at home to Scunthorpe United. With talented wingers such as Jimmy Kebe and Jobi McAnuff ahead of him in the pecking order his appearances for Reading have been sporadic, resulting in two loan spells to Southend United and Swindon Town.
