What the Africa Cup of Nations means for Premier League players and their clubs

By Sir Hardly Anyone

As you may have noticed, the Africa Cup of Nations has begun. A little later than planned, but it has begun.

What it means is that those players involved will not be available at the start of the season since they won’t have had a proper summer rest. In this case […]

England managers should stop playing into the hands of the extreme right wing

By Tony Attwood

The notion that a lack of English players in the Premier League is bad for England, bad for football, and quite probably bad for Brexit, is standard fare in terms of what England managers say.

And it is noticeable that they never give any evidence of why this is the case. It […]

How come England are getting better at football all of a sudden

By Tony Attwood

In terms of reporting on football, by and large I doubt that anyone has much expectation that we will ever be better informed about what is actually going on than we are now. Jounalists, bloggers and newspaper editors choose what is and what is not news, and report it in their own […]

Who will win the Europa League?

by Robert Johnson

Last season, Arsenal were looking like strong contenders for the Europa League. They drew the first leg of the semi-final against Athletico Madrid at the Emirates. However, their Europa League hopes were ended when Diego Costa scored the solo goal in the second leg of the semi-final. After beating Arsenal, Diego Simeone’s […]

Gambling on football matches: is there really a way to make it pay? Let’s try with England.

The greatest indictment of their crimes: Luis Figo speaks about Fifa

By Walter Broeckx

World cup refereeing on a low level

By Walter Broeckx

A few times in the last few weeks I have seen the question coming up in the comment section: “I wonder what Walter has to say about that decision in the world cup?” But because of my one man embargo on Fifa and all what is connected to them I haven’t seen […]

Will Fifa stand firm in the Suarez saga or will their bite loosen?

By Walter Broeckx

Everyone familiar in European football knows the word: Uefalona. This is an indication of how Uefa treated Barcelona in the past years. It went from blatant help from referees not only in the match against Arsenal where Busacca let the Barcelona players free when they were manhandling Arsenal players and then sending […]

Fifa see North Korea not as a warning but as a blueprint

By Walter Broeckx

He has said […]

Yet another international tournament. It is time to stand up and say “f*** off Uefa”

By Tony Attwood

Uefa is considering launching a nine division European league for nations, colonies and territories. It claims the games of the new league can be played in the periods set aside at the moment for friendly matches, but there looks like every chance of this being another thin edge of a very […]

If Fifa had a brain: how to improve international football
