UAE Banks Cashing in on World Football

UAE Banks Cashing in on World Football

Banks in the UAE have been pouring reserves of cash into long standing partnerships with global football clubs and even though they’re simply excuses to suck poor, deluded fans into supporting their clubs by accepting a level of debt, it seems a great opportunity to delve into what these cards even offer anyone wanting to...

Al Ain FC To Host Manchester City In Fancy New Stadium

Thanks to the incompetence of Manchester City and their inability to finish off Championship team Blackburn Rovers in the FA Cup 3rd Round today, manager Manuel Pellegrini has come out and cancelled ‘The Sky Blues’ tour of Abu Dhabi next week; “We play Blackburn instead of traveling to Abu Dhabi and playing a friendly. What...

Predictions – Premier League – Week 37

As the race for 1st and 4th spot’s heats up, this weekend will see some crucial matches being played… fortunately for me, I’ll be watching them in Europe… so there! And this is how I picked ‘em this weekend. I predict: Birmingham 2 v 1 Burnley Man City 2 v 2 Aston Villa Portsmouth 1...

Predictions – Premier League – Week 36

After a couple weeks of sloppy punditry and ill timed posts, I have returned to step my game up for the ass end of the season (I’ve always been an ass man)… and what a weekend to pull the finger out for! Along with battles for the title and relegation shit fights, there has been...

Predictions – Premier League – Week 28

A massive game this round at the Bridge, with mid-week UCL struggles Chelsea up against mid-week FA Cup flops Man City. Another slip up by the Blues will see United and Arsenal back in contention for the title, whereas a win for City could lock in fourth spot as Tottenham host an in form Everton…...

Tevez Downs Red Devils

Ah, I love cross town rivalries. They really do warm the heart. Nothing screams “Fuck you neighbour!” quite like a few fake dives, a bad penalty decision and two goals by the same player, that only a mere 6 months ago was plying his trade for the opposing team… oh and how could I forget...

Resuts – Premier League – Week 21

Don’t look now Fergie, Carlito is quickly climbing the top goal scorers list and better yet, with 10 goals in 8 games, he’s single-handedly helping Mancini’s City jump into fourth place! The only way this would be cooler is if there were some sort of 80’s style montage stitching together this feat and their inevitable...
Santa Cruzing By Early This Year

Santa Cruzing By Early This Year

Everyone’s Christmases came at once over at the middle East lands the other night. The snow was falling thick and fast, Roque Santa Cruz managed a rare start and an even rarer deuce (he should have partnered Tevez up front a long time ago) and shortly after the match had ended Mark Hughes was sacked...

Results – Premier League – Week 17

The aim this round was to do better than my predictions on the weekend and it’s safe to say, like Tottenham against a sloppy Man City, I kicked them out of the park while predicting 5 out of 8 results. Gameweek score: 5 out of 8 Weekend conclusions: Liverpool finally scraped a win but is...

Predictions – Premier League – Week 17

Ok, I’m going for a perfect record this round… lord knows I need it to make up for the weekend’s shambles. I’m also predicting a Liverpool bite back in retaliation (look out Wigan!) and with 4th place up for grabs at White Hart Lane, a 6 goal thriller… look out, my nuts just landed on...

Finally A League Win!

When Chelsea scored their early goal, I thought City were in for one helluva night, but much to my surprise and no doubt the millions watching, they were able to out-muscle and out-play the Blues at their own game. It almost reminded me of the time I went to that strip joint and started shooting...

Predictions – Premier League – Week 15

There are several key matches this weekend that I’ve had a lot of difficulty predicting, however, the one I’m looking forward to the most is Chelsea’s visit to ‘Draw Specialists’ Manchester City… and guess what, I’m predicting another draw! Going off recent form, I think City are one of the few teams that can match...
