2012-2013 Season: Progress?

With three games still to go (a Merseyside derby plus two very winnable games against Fulham and QPR) we've already matched last season's points tally and more importantly have scored 20 more goals than last season. Not bad for a "transitional year". Our goal difference in the last two seasons was +15 and +7, so this season we have a better goal difference than those two season's combined.

On Football ‘Analysis’

We used to sit down and look forward to it in comfort on a Saturday, I think you're becoming too deep, I think you're setting yourselves up as judge and jury. I think you've gone over the dividing line where you have a contribution to make to one of being dogmatic, overbearing, boring, and you can keep going. I know it's difficult to justify a none-none for example, or to bill it as match of the day, but if that's what you get when you take your cameras to a ground then show the none-none, don't try and justify it or pick things out and bore us all to tears with your lectures.

Gary Neville – Who Saw That Coming?

You Don’t Win Anything With Kids

Keep bringing the kids through I say … I’d rather see the likes of Sterling, Suso, Yesil, Pacheco etc get a chance to show they have the quality (or not) than spend £15-20m on a striker who will not be world class, because even if we had £50m to spend no world class striker will join us in January [...]

The Sun Front Page – “The Real Truth”

I saw this on 101GreatGoals this morning: It’s a lot more than I expected from the Sun, especially after Kelvin’s MacKenzie’s half-hearted “I published in good faith” apology from yesterday, here’s what he had to say incase you haven’t seen it already: Today I offer my profuse apologies to the [...]

The Circus

This sums up nicely what annoys me with football in this country: Picture the scenario, a brave British Olympic athlete has a bad start in the 400m qualifying round, but pulls it out of the bag to not only achieve a result that will likely see them qualify for the final event, but also showed [...]

Hillsborough Indepenent Panel Report – Highlights

I’ve just finished reading the Summary section of the recently published HIP while I should be working.  I went into it prepared for some ridiculous stories of incompetence and probably willful perversion of justice after the fact, but I am genuinely shocked at the levels of both alluded to. [...]
