Liverpool look like they are going to claim their first league title in 29 years this season. The Jurgen Klopp project has finally reached full momentum in the league. Though to be fair to them, they started to gain the momentum this time last year. Liverpool haven't lost a league game since a 2-1 defeat… Continue reading Can anyone catch Liverpool now?
With the devestation that the bush fires have done to Australia, why is the Australian Open still going ahead? The locals in Melbourne have been told to stay indoors and keep animals inside, so why haven't the players been brought in? Players have had to retire due to the smoke and poor air quality, some… Continue reading Why on earth is the Australian Open still going ahead?
Chelsea's 3-0 win over Burnley on Saturday arrested their rather indifferent home form and gave Chelsea fans a great home performance to cheer for the first time in far too long. The weekend's win meant that Chelsea had completed the league double over Burnley for the first time since the 2009/10 season and finally beat… Continue reading What we learnt from Chelsea’s win over Burnley.
Well, we're only a couple of weeks into 2020 and the President of the United States has decided that he needs to make this year kinda crap already by possibly starting a war in the Middle East. If you haven't been keeping up with the latest happy-go-boom-boom antics of the Trump administration, here's an incredibly… Continue reading Thank you, Donald. The one thing the world needs right now is increased tensions in the Middle East.
I finally saw The Rise of Skywalker this week. And I thought it was good. Not amazing and not terrible. The spectacle of it was very impressive, it was very well shot and well-acted by all involved. As an ending to the Skywalker story/ saga/ whatever you want to call it, I found it very… Continue reading So, was The Rise of Skywalker any good?
Yes, the last piece I wrote was about Chelsea and I'm writing another one straight afterwards. I'm not going to apologise for that. As we approach the end of the decade, we're seeing lots of best of the decade lists, for everything from songs to football players etc. So, I thought I would get in… Continue reading The best Chelsea team, according to me.
After Thursday’s general election results I would normally write something about it, but most everyone who reads this blog knows my opinion of Boris Johnson and of Britain's withdrawal from the EU, so I won't waste your or my time rehashing old pieces. And I promise not to write anything about The Rise of Skywalker… Continue reading The honeymoon is over for Frank Lampard. The hard work begins now.
The major talking point of the Premier League season so far has not been Liverpool's unbeaten run, or Manchester City's slip-ups or the fact that both North London clubs have sacked their managers. It has been the impact of VAR or Video Assistant Referee. Var was supposed to help the referees make the really tight,… Continue reading VAR is still making headlines for all the wrong reasons. Something needs to change.
I usually write about pretty lighthearted topics (apart from when I get on my soapbox and rant about Brexit or the Tories). I have written a couple of more, what you might call substantial, pieces that directly drew from my own experience and opinions. I've written about being an athiest, about what I want to… Continue reading The fear of failure.
So. The Premier League has seen a major managerial change for the first time this season. Mauricio Pochettino's tenure came screeching to an end last Tuesday after five and a half years at the helm. Now, much as I really don't like Spurs, Pochettino took them from a side who were an occasional Champions League… Continue reading Is Jose Mourinho really the right man for Tottenham?
