Get On Mourinho’s Bandwagon, Not His Back

As we head swiftly into April, with weeks rather than months of the season left, it’s hard not to drag out a cliché or two. “If you’d told us in August we’d be top…..”, “6 point gap, game in hand….”, “it’s in our own hands…” But realistically, who wouldn’t rather be in Chelsea’s position right [...]

Is It Really Football That’s Toxic?

Last summer, John Bieniewicz, a referee in America was punched and knocked out by a football player he was trying to send off.

CHELSEA v Southampton: Preview

Venue: Stamford Bridge Date: Sunday, 15 March Kick-off: 13:30 GMT So, if we can behave ourselves for 90 minutes and stop upsetting Carragher and co by remonstrating with these fine upstanding figures who clearly don’t need to do their job well, then we have a bit of a game today. After a pretty woeful exit [...]
