I recently came to the conclusion that I will likely never buy a brand-new modern football shirt ever again. I say likely, because I was given Chelsea F.A. Cup anniversary kit as a birthday gift this year. And that kit is amazing. It was only worn once against Nottingham Forest in the F.A. Cup, appropriately… Continue reading Why are modern football kits so rubbish?
Now I write a lot about Chelsea on this blog, and I make no apologies for that. They are my team, who I've followed for nearly 20 years and who I'll follow for the rest of my life. In a previous post, where I named my choices for the greatest Chelsea side of the last… Continue reading Gianfranco Zola is my favourite footballer ever. And here’s why.
With there being no sport on at the moment for obvious reasons, I've been watching old matches and great moments back and it's brought to mind the emotions, the highs and lows that sport can bring. It can take you from the highest of highs to the lowest depths. That's why we love it, that's… Continue reading Not many things can make us feel quite as much as sport can.
It's so unbelievably annoying that there is no football on at the moment. It feels like something intrinsic is missing from the weekly routine. You do your work for the week, you get to the weekend and you can relax and either go to the football or watch on tv. That's the way the week… Continue reading The coronavirus outbreak may actually benefit football in the long run.
It's funny isn't it, how integral something that supposed to be a past-time or a hobby can become? All sport is just a form of physical exercise with more objectives than simply the number of reps or sets you do. And hey, if you get a major kick out of what you are able to… Continue reading What do football fans do with the season on hold?
With the coronavirus pandemic currently playing havoc with pretty much every aspect of daily life, it was no surprise when professional football was suspended until April 3rd. And now that UEFA have confirmed the postponement of the European Championships until next year, the FA, Premier League and the EFL need to decide what they will… Continue reading What does Football do now?
The new season of Formula One was meant to return at the weekend with Lewis Hamilton on the verge of true F1 greatness. His recent run of World Championships means he sits on six, one behind Michael Schumacher’s record of seven. Many claim that Formula One is not exciting anymore, as Mercedes and Hamilton seemingly… Continue reading Hamilton is on the verge of making F1 history. But that is the least important thing going on in the world right now.
Well, Jose Mourinho’s return to English football has not exactly been a smooth ride. Then again, when is anything a smooth ride with the Portuguese manager? While results definitely took an upturn in the immediate aftermath of his appointment, they have since taken more than a bit of a nose dive. They were outclassed by… Continue reading Jose Mourinho needs to stop blaming his lack of strikers. He needs to take responsibility for poor results.
Now I’m not a huge gamer. I actually tend watch gameplay videos on YouTube more often than actually play the game. I don’t even have a dedicated games console. All the games I play are played on this very machine I’m writing this blog on. But there is one video game franchise I have played… Continue reading Why I love Football Manager.
Well, the first thing to do from my perspective would be to not sack Frank Lampard. For a manager to not be able to make any signings during their first transfer window in charge, with the most important player leaving, having to rely rather heavily on players who were not proven at Premier League level,… Continue reading What will Chelsea need to do in the summer?
