Are Arsenal Really Going To Spend Some Money?

I know it might seem like I’m a little obsessed with the goings on at Arsenal, but when a story in the press raises my eyebrows I can’t help but react to it, particularly when it comes to the topic of their spending. And before gooners everywhere jump in with a counter argument about the obscene amounts spent at Chelsea, find me a quote where I’ve ever said I agree with the sort of contracts we dish out.Read More

Will Scolari Bring Ronaldinho To Chelsea?

Funny how a transfer market is never a transfer market these days without us being linked to Ronaldinho and seemingly it must be about that time of year again because the Brazilian is rumoured to have issued a ‘come and get me’ plea to new-boss-on-the-block, Scolari.

Having apparently spent weeks negotiating a contract he was expected to sign with Man City, there’s more than a touch of the deja vu’s about this one, with Ronaldinho now seeking a move to Stamford Bridge.Read More

Arsenal’s Fabregas Set To Miss Out On Villa Dream?

If there’s one player who’s added a few quid to his value already in Euro 2008, it has to be David Villa after Spain’s 4-1 win against Russia. He was head and shoulders above Torres, bagged a hat-trick and subsequently stands as hot favourite to take the Golden Boot home from the tournament.Read More

What’s Liverpool’s Torres Sulking About?

Spain looked really up for it in their game against Russia and whether they’ll be able to keep that up or burn themselves out remains to be seen. Spanish coach Luis Aragones was certainly a happy man afterwards, crowing “The atmosphere in the squad is extraordinary and we’ve instilled into them from the first moment that those who don’t play are as important as those who do.” Nice idea mate, but it looks as if at least one of Spain’s players missed the point.Read More

Is Scolari The Right Man For Chelsea?


Ok, while the media work themselves up into a long-awaited climax, we can all breathe a sigh of relief now that our next manager has finally been named. Shortly after Portugal’s win last night, Chelsea announced Luiz Felipe Scolari will take over where Avram Grant left off.

Now I’m going to have to be honest and say there’s a few things that surprise me about this.Read More

Scolari Keeping Chelsea Guessing?


With the media circus around potential candidates for the manager’s job dying down a little – largely because most of the names they’ve put forward have either denied the stories or got jobs elsewhere – the press seem to be hanging on to one name longer than most – Luiz Felipe Scolari.Read More

Has Boulahrouz Left Chelsea Already?

Khalid Boulahrouz looks like he could be on his way out of Chelsea on a more permanent basis, with Marseille coach Eric Gerets taking a keen interest.

Having missed out on the original 23-man Dutch squad, Boula got the call following an injury to Ryan Babel and made a solid start in Holland’s opening game against world champions Italy.Read More

Will Carvalho Follow Mourinho Again?

Mourinho’s installation as Inter’s new manager always looked like it could be a bit dodgy for us and his bragging that he could more or less take his pick of our players didn’t help. But whilst Essien put paid to that little theory, Carvalho seems to have given it a bit of credence by suggesting he would “love” to play under his former manager again.Read More

Zico The New Favourite For Chelsea Job?

Zico has parted company with Fenerbahce and surprise, surprise, within seconds of the announcement was linked with the vacant Chelsea job. Despite recent reports suggesting Scolari is almost certain to seat himself at the empty manager’s desk after Euro 2008, Zico is now odds-on to beat him to it. But given that we’ve had more dead certs in the press lately than Kenyon’s had dodgy deals, just how much truth is there in this latest one?Read More
