    Tony Pulis: The Handshake Hypocrite

    After Stoke’s game with Fulham, Tony Pulis refused to shake Mark Hughes’ hand.  After the game, Pulis confirmed it was a retaliatory gesture after Hughes refused his hand back in September.: “He has done it when we played in the League Cup and now I have done it back,” Pulis said. “It’s...

    Robert Pires: Arsenal Hero

    Robert Pires might not have contributed much to Aston Villa yet, but he continues to make himself a hero to Arsenal fans: Clearly a lot of animosity between the pair. Hard to explain, until you remember that it was Pires who dived to win a crucial penalty against Harry’s Pompey back at...

    Spurs put their left foot forward – MOTD Exclusive

    Readers based in Britain will be used to Gary Lineker’s deeply uninteresting introductory tidbits on the increasingly painful Match of the Day. Readers abroad will simply remember him as the jug-eared, crisp-pushing flop at Barcelona. But that’s by the by. Last night, Lineker was smarmily welcoming in highlights of Tottenham’s 2-1 win...

    Merry Christmas from Three and in

    Merry Christmas one and all. Or some other more agnostic but equally suitable festive greeting. Christmas, as consumer culture and countless Coca-Cola ads have told us, is about Hope. There are millions of you out there, hoping. Hoping your Santa offers more than Cruz. Hoping Hoping your Rudolph is more reliable than...

    Nani the flip-flopper

    I don’t know about you but when I hear the word ‘flip’ I think of dolphins and dolphins are complete arseholes. Similarly, when I hear the word ‘flop’ I think of Terence Trent D’Arby’s second album. Put them together and you’ve got a flip-flopper. Which is Nani. Check this from The Guardian...

    Time for Allardyce to become Allardici

    One could understand if ‘Big’ Big Sam was feeling a little down in the dumps earlier in the week.  Unceremoniously dismissed from Blackburn by, of all things, a foreign woman. Reading this morning’s papers, however, he will have afforded himself a smile for the first time in a week or so.  No...

    Balotelli v Wilshere

    So Mario Balotelli won an award. It’s the ‘prestigious Golden Boy’ award, organised by Tuttosport. He then said of runner-up Jack Wilshere: What’s his name? Wil…? No, I just don’t know him, but the next time I play against Arsenal I’ll try to be careful. Maybe I could show him the Golden...

    Tevez takes a leaf out of Rooney’s book

    Perhaps the ‘leaf/book’ one is an odd analogy to headline with.  Despite Harpersport’s publication of ‘Wayne Rooney: My Story So Far’, neither Rooney or Tevez strike me as particularly literary figures.  However, they are united by the one book they both understand perfectly well: the cheque-book. Tevez and Rooney are from opposite...
