Here he is, the big bad boss at the bottom of the list. And it might be a bit harsh as he didn’t really do anything wrong. He came off the bench, played a long free kick up-pitch, and… That was it. That was his Premier League career.
All of 7 seconds.
He did his job, kept a clean sheet, won the game, and all in 7 seconds. …


Last season, I was on flames.
But I still got a few a bit off — there were still some sides evading me. This season, I’m back, and I’m going for better.

There’s something in the air in the WSL, there’s a changing tide, there’s somet special gonna happen, I just know it.
It feels like a new dawn, a corner turned where the game can sprint clean into the sunset at a million miles an hour.

I might have been on flames, but the WSL is the feckin’ fire that lit me.

So I predict the WSL each year…


It was poor form. That’s what it always is.

But let’s take a page out of Marvel’s book and play a spirited game of ‘What If…?
I put forth that it was not just poor form, ’twas lack of VAR intervention that downed The Cherries.

The date: 17th June.
The Year: 2020.
The Game: Aston Villa vs. Sheffield United.
Final Score: 0–0

That’s how it went in our universe. And it proved to be an important point for the home side as they would survive on the final day by a single, solitary point. …


Half a decade has passed. Half a decade since all the thrills, chills, twists, and turns of the Cruiserweight Classic. One of the finest pieces of television little old me has had the pleasure of witnessing.

It’s a shame we ain’t seen another one, but it does make me appreciate this one a whole lot more — and the individuals who took part in it.

Over the past five years, I’ve looked in and seen who’s left, be it 20 of them in 2017, or 19 of them in 2018, or 18 of them in 2019Or 17 of them…


In the hunt for the finest of the Bond pictures, I must take notes during my viewing. Here are my notes for the twenty-fifth of these case studies; Never Say Never Again.

The results will be posted heeeeeeere.

Never Say Never Again spoilers ahead.

The gateway to the Football League is re-opening, and though it’s pretty feckin’ squeaky and doesn’t really like letting folk have the opportunity to pass through it when it’s super feckin’ hard to get through it anyways — it’s back with a feckin’ bang.

Last year, I had a wee CONFERENCE CALL about the league and where all the teams were gonna end up, and this year, there’s no call, but I’m doing the same thing.

I give myself a score based off the difference in my predictions and where the team actually finishes, for example, if I predict Dover…


OH HEY LOOK
It’s another guy you’ve never heard of and don’t care about predicting the Premier League based off a gut feeling and how they feel about transfers

Well since you don’t care about me, I won’t piss about. Let’s talk about FOOTBAAAAAALL

I predict the Premier League each year and I give myself a score at the end of it using the difference between my prediction and where they actually end up. For example, if I had Newcastle finishing 17th and they actually finished 15th, that would net me a score of -2. …


Last year, I cheated. I waited until a few games had been played and then I made my picks.
That clouded me. I’d actually say it wasn’t too bad, but there were a couple of sweet lemons ruining everyonee’s day.

This time, no such errors shall be made. It’s back to wild shots in the dark based off transfer activity, ‘vibe’, and whether it feels like it’s a club’s time to be heading up top.

I’m gonna predict where each 21/22 League Two side is gonna end up and then tot up a score based on the difference between that…


Last year, I cheated. I waited until a few games had been played and then I made my picks.
That clouded me. I thought it was the time of Lambert’s Ipswich and Barton’s Fleetwood. Oh, how wrong I was.

This time, no such errors shall be made. It’s back to wild shots in the dark based off transfer activity, ‘vibe’, and whether it feels like it’s a club’s time to be heading up top.

I’m gonna predict where each 21/22 League One side is gonna end up and then tot up a score based on the difference between that and…


Three years ago, thirty-two women thrilled us and chilled us in a tournament for the ages.
Well, there was one the year before, but each stood out, so FOR THE AGES IT BE.

Today, seventeen remain with the company that put the tournament on and fifteen are off doing something else that I hope is the best thing ever for them.

I watch a bit of WWE on me tele and I like seeing the seventeen that are left, so how they be?

This time last year, there were only sixteen knocking about, and they shaped up like this.

16…
