The REAL LATICS Get Back to Winning Ways

The REAL LATICS got back to winning ways at Boundary Park tonight by beating League One leaders Scunthorpe United 3-0.

Lewis Alessandra (pictured above) scored a hat-trick.

This important win moves the REAL LATICS back into fourth place in League One.


Was the message that Arsene Wenger gave to Tony Adams after Adams was appointed Portsmouth manager this afternoon.

Bad Few Days On The Road

The REAL LATICS have suffered in the West Country over the last few days.

On Tuesday night they travelled to play Bristol Rovers and lost 2-0 and today they were back in the West Country, well Wiltshire more like, and got beat by Swindon Town, again by the same score, 2-0.

Two defeats in a short space of time have seen The REAL LATICS drop from 2nd in League One to seventh.

Beckham to Join AC Milan

East End boy made good, David Beckham, joins Serie A's AC Milan in January according to AC's Vice-President Adriano Galliani.

"The player (Beckham) will train with us and in January he will sign with us until the end of the season.

"He will be available for coach Carlo Ancelotti for both the domestic competition and the UEFA Cup.

"It's not just a marketing operation but a great acquisition."

AC Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti has given the blessing for the former Manchester United star to arrive to the San Siro because Beckham's arrival means there would be more competition for places in the squad.

"For me there are no problems," he said. "The players that will go on the bench will have problems."

Beckham is able to 'transfer' to another club as the MLS season ends on Sunday.

Beckham needs at least to be training, so he can still be part of Englands World Cup plans under coach Fabio Capello.

Goals, Goals and More Goals

On Tuesday night, all over and Europe and the UK it rained goals, goals and more goals!!

In the Champions League, Arsenal went to Turkey and beat Fenerbache 5-2, in Spain Villarreal beat Aalborg 6-3, Lyon went to Bucharest and won 5-3, Man Utd beat Celtic 3-0 and Bayern Munich beat Fiorentina 3-0.

Back to the UK and in the Championship, Norwich beat Wolves 5-2. There was a five goal thriller as Blackpool beat Derby 3-2, Burnley travelled to Coventry and won 3-1.

In League One, Hartlepool beat Huddersfield 5-3, Yeovil beat Crewe 3-2 and for the record, The Real Latics lost 2-0 at Bristol Rovers.

In League Two, Rochdale beat Chester 6-1.

More of the same tonight please?

Sick 'Joke' Badly Backfires

Andy Goldstein (ex of Soccer AM fame) now working for Talksport Radio announced on Saturday that his co-presenter Jason Cundy ex Chelsea, Tottenham, Ipswich Town had 'passed away.'

The sick gaffe was made because Jason was unable to work.

No sooner the announcement had been made, Jason's wife Lizzie started to receive text messages and Chelsea fans began to lay flowers at Stamford Bridge.

Hopefully Goldstein's CV should read - ex Soccer AM, ex Talksport Radio.

Lets All Laugh At Tottenham

Juande Ramos should be re-christened 'One Day.' Cos 'One Day' Tottenham might win a Premiership game.

Have a laugh on me with Manfred Mann.

Also this bloke (a Tottenham Fan) has got the right idea.

Follow the fortunes of The Glory Hunter here.

Is This The Worst Miss Ever?

Chris Iwelumo on as a sub for Scotland v Norway this afternoon, making his debut.

Wishing the ground would open up and swallow him after this miss, moments after coming on.

At least England won 5-1 LOL.

Flying the Flag

England, Scotland, Wales and N Ireland are all in action today - WC 2010 qualifiers.

Last night England's U21 beat Wales U21 3-2 at Cardiff's Ninian Park to take a first leg lead, in the play-off to qualify for the U21 European Championships.

The 2nd leg is next Tuesday at Villa Park, home of Aston Villa.

Johnstones Paint Trophy

Who would of thought that a mere competition like the Johnstones Paint Trophy would create such a scoreline?

Consider this before the 7pm kick off at Adams Park last night. Wycombe top of League Two in action against Shrewsbury Town, third in League Two.

Crowd of 1700 plus, including 190 die-hards who travelled down from New Meadow.

Final Score


Hero of the night:

Grant Holt who scored FIVE goals

If any reader knows a link to the video of this match (cos there has to be one), please post it in the comments section.

LIVE Football on TV

I received an email a few weeks ago asking me to review a site which is dedicated to providing THE most up-to-date listing of EVERY single football being shown on UK television.

These games do not just include the Premiership or the Champions League, this list includes the major European Leagues - Spanish, German, Italian, Dutch, and action from Portugal.

There is International football, Welsh, Scottish and Irish listings plus non-league and Women's football.

The listings go as far to show ALL games that feature Reserve football and Youth team football, notably Chelsea, Man Utd and Liverpool.

The site is simple to navigate - its not in your face. There is hardly any advertising and there are no blind links or annoying pop-ups.

Every game is listed on one page, but every category of football has its own section, click any header and you will be able to see at-a-glance TV listings for your favourite team or teams in whatever competition your team is taking part.

The listings on the front page start from today and run all the way through until Wednesday 14th October 2009. As when TV coverage changes, the list is updated as quick as it is possible.

For those of you on the move, I suggest you take a look at the site and bookmark the site into your favourites and lead yourself into footballing heaven.

Remember Live Football on TV.
