It would be easy to talk about the football and what I think of team X, why team Y is out and which team will win. … Continue reading

RWF – Has Mourinho dug himself a hole?

With the conclusion of the Premiership season yesterday, most of the talk will understandably turn to Manchester City and those relegated to the Championship.

This Chelsea team are not good enough, they are not ready. I don’t see it. This is a team that finished the season with three players in the PFA team of the year, one of which also claiming the PFA young player of the year award. Chelsea also finished behind a Liverpool team containing two players in Sturridge and Johnson whom couldn’t … Continue reading

Neymar to Barca?

‘Coder Chris gives his thoughts on Neymar’s transfer to Barca’ Something in the World of football has been confusing me as of late. There are always hundreds of changes around the globe at this time.

Considering the prices being shouted about around Europe this may not seem like a huge deal.
