A Week in Review: 9th-15th November

Scotland make it to the Euros! Thursday night was the most invested in international football I’ve felt for over two years; not since England got to the World Cup semi-final was I this interested. Scotland had their most concrete chance in years to qualify the European Championships next summer. They had already eased Israel out… Continue reading A Week in Review: 9th-15th November

A Week in Review: 26th October- 1st November

Labour must face up to what went wrong The report on Labour’s response to accusations of anti-Semitism within the party was released to the public last week. And it was damning. The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) who undertook the investigation and report, said its analysis pointed ‘to a culture within the party which,… Continue reading A Week in Review: 26th October- 1st November

A Week in Review: 12th-18th October

Premier League rejects ‘Project Big Picture,’ but promises to look at the big picture So, Project Big Picture comes to nothing. The radical new plan to restructure the English football pyramid was soundly rejected by all 20 Premier League clubs last week. That surely means that even the clubs who devised the ideas in the… Continue reading A Week in Review: 12th-18th October

This government is out of touch and totally incompetent.

Endless Carping?! I won’t say I was astonished by Jacob Rees-Mogg’s saying that people should stop complaining about the shortage of coronavirus tests and everyone should be praising the system instead as a ‘phenomenal success’. Apparently, everyone should heap praise on the government for having system in place at all, and ignore all the flaws… Continue reading This government is out of touch and totally incompetent.

European football makes its return. After more than 4 months, European football returned this week. The remaining games of the Round of 16 were played this week before the two competitions enter a frenetic period for the remainder of August, as UEFA desperately rush to finish the European competitions for the current season before the… Continue reading A Week in Review: 3rd- 9th August

Johnson threw his lot in with Cummings and showed his contempt for the British public.

Boris Johnson has showed his true colours ever since the allegations against top aide Dominic Cummings breaking lockdown regulations came out. Every word out of the government has been so absurdly insulting to the intelligence and integrity of the British public that it put paid to the image that Johnson is some sort of champion… Continue reading Johnson threw his lot in with Cummings and showed his contempt for the British public.

Not many things can make us feel quite as much as sport can.

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.

The coronavirus outbreak may actually benefit football in the long run.

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.

Boris Johnson at last did something right. He deferred to the experts.

When Boris Johnson announced that Britain was effectively in lockdown on Monday, it was, for me, the first time he actually acted as a Prime Minister should. In this instance, he knew he needed to defer to the experts and take their advice on board. Putting this country into a state of lockdown may hurt… Continue reading Boris Johnson at last did something right. He deferred to the experts.
