Rather than one major story being out there it looks as though there are a lot of little ones, and so please find a summary of what has caught the eye since Sunday. Nacho Montreal Extends His Contract Back in June I was lucky enough to meet Nacho at the Puma 2015/16 home kit launch. […]

Well, January has arrived and while the rumour mongers have us linked with a couple of handfuls of ‘targets’ none have yet appeared. Unless of course you include Arsenal Ladies who unveiled a very exciting new arrival in Fara Williams from Liverpool Ladies.

What a strange week this is. A full eight days between fixtures provides a welcome break for tired bodies, but remember that applies equally to Manchester City, moreso in fact since they played on Saturday.

Last night it […]

The latest batch of television picks have been announced and as you might have expected there has been scant consideration for the supporters when these have been decided. For us the most notable change is the moving of the Manchester City home match to an 8pm kick-off on Monday 21st December. It’s not only City who will have supporters […]

The aftermath of Tuesday night’s performance has generated quite a mixed reaction, not surprisingly. I wondered if a positive look at how we can recover from such a poor start to our Champions League might be an idea for tonight, but then realised that is likely to involve taking points off Bayern Munich, and what […]

After the minimalist (perm either of two words with disgrace) report from an alehouse in North End Road after the farce that was Saturday, I should comment on today’s announcement from the Football Association. At the outset I shall try to avoid the language that seemed entirely appropriate in the hours that followed the fiasco in […]
