Diego Costa is like a mard-arse version of Peter Withe. Withe was a horrible, awkwardly shaped individual. All elbows, fists, snarls, confrontation and goals. He wasn’t shy in doling out his thoughts on the game of football, or to his opponents out on the pitch. Physically forthright, is how you could class him. Withe was […]Read more "Withe or Without You"

Burton Albion have three years to get rid of those terraces. While the introduction of all-seater stadiums hasn’t stopped supporters standing at football matches, it […]Read more "You get bags more buzz at Burton"

My relationship with Liverpool FC has changed throughout the years. When I was younger, when I was in […]Read more "The continued Manchester Unitedisation of Liverpool FC"

Jürgen Klopp embraced Saido Mane and the boys on the touchline last Sunday at Arsenal like many of us would greet news of a new left back. When he […]Read more "Becoming A Spectacle?"
