Sir Bobby Robson RIP

To Elsie (Sir Bobby's wife) and to Sir Bobby's family and friends, please accept my condolences and condolences of my readers for your sad loss and I know there are thousands of blogs in cyberspace expressing their feelings of sorrow to you right now.

The Mail Online has reproduced Sir Bobby's last written column and for me I think it is ironic.

Thank you Sir Bobby

Barclays Premier Asia Trophy - Day 1

After Day One of the Barclays Premier Asia Trophy competition being held in Beijing, China it will be a Tottenham v Hull City final on Friday.

Tottenham beat West Ham 1-0 in the first game and West Ham's day was made worse when Luis Boa-Morte was stretchered off after damaging his cruciate knee ligaments. It is expected that Boa-Morte will be out of action for the next six months.

Tottenham's winner was scored by Jermaine Defoe.

In second game, Hull City drew 1-1 with the hosts Beijing Guoan. Geovanni opened the scoring for Hull and Beijing equalised just after the second-half restart from Midibo.

Hull eventually won 5-4 on penalties.

So the line-up for Friday is West Ham v Beijing (for 3rd and 4th place) and Tottenham v Hull (Final).

How The Mighty Toon Are Falling!

First there was relegation from the Premiership to the Championship, then last Saturday the 'Toon' were stuffed 6-1 by Leyton Orient and today the proposed take-over of St James' Park fell through.

Can things get any worse?

You know what they say, once you start in a downward spiral.......

'Welcome to Manchester'

Sir Alex, thousands of miles away in China on tour with ManUre has ruffled a few feathers at Eastlands, saying Money Citeh are a 'small club' with a 'small mentality.'

His remarks are down to the above picture (Tevez on a advertising hoarding in the centre of Manchester) and the season hasn't started YET!!!

The Sven Goran Effect!!

He has had that 'effect' with women and it looks like the SVEN EFFECT is taking over the oldest club in the Football League..... that is Notts County.

This afternoon (Saturday) County took on Forest (from just across the River Trent) and beat them 2-1.

Albeit it was a pre-season friendly, but over 12,000 people travelled to Meadow Lane to witness SVENGALI's arrival.

I told you Notts County was a team to watch out for!!

Season 2009/10: Teams to Watch Out For

The following post IS A BIT OF FUN, not to be taken seriously and certainly not for anyone to have a punt.

The title of the post is called "Teams to watch out for." Here is my list for the Premiership, Championship, League One, League Two & throughout the season there will be regular updates on the progress of each team.

So here goes:

Premiership: Forget your 'big four,' and forget the promoted clubs (although clubs promoted into the Premiership are always good for a laugh because they normally go straight back down.) The team to watch out for is Money Citeh. A no-brainer really considering the money they have spent.... so far.

Championship: Ipswich Town - Simply because Roy Keane worked the 'miracle' getting Sunderland into the Premiership. Lets see if he can do it again with the tractor boys.

League One: A difficult choice to make, but I plumped for Southampton. Simply because of the turmoil they have been through since the end of last season - relegation, change of ownership and administration and THEY start the season on minus 10 points.

League Two: The team I had originally picked was new boys Burton Albion, but since Sven took the Director of Football job at Notts County..... Notts County it is.

So have a bit of fun with the above list and if you have a list of teams to watch out for - let me know.

Wishing John Hartson Well

Ex-Wales, Celtic, Arsenal legend John Hartson lies critically ill in a Swansea hospital with cancer of the brain, lungs and testicles. Hartson went to hospital last weekend complaining of severe headaches and after a range of tests the sad diagnosis was made.

He has since undergone brain surgery.

Harton's sister Hayley has asked for ALL football fans to pray for her brother.

She said, "I would like to thank you all for your support through this devastating time. He is very, very ill. I am not a religious person but ask every one of you to pray for John to fight this.

"Thank You."

A Bad Day at the Office

Stoke City sent out two sides yesterday for friendlies against non-league opposition.

Stoke lost at Nantwich Town, 2-0 and at Newcastle Town, 2-1.

Hardly ideal preparation for their second season in the Premiership.

If you liked this article and you liked this article then I am sorry to say, there will be no more.

I received an email this afternoon from my 'writer' telling me that there will be no more articles. No reason, no explanation, just a straightforward termination (with immediate effect).

My Football Kits

Normally I am happy in my own 'little' internet cocoon (I know where I am and I am dedicated to where I 'surf' on a daily basis) but I thought I would go out of my box and surf a little further a field (dramatic it sounds but I think you know what I mean).

Anyway I came across this site (a UK based site) and it seems we have struck up a bit of a deal.

I am going to write a few reviews about football shirts (guaranteed to be published) and for my efforts I will get a free football shirt and they are also planning a new segment to their site which launches at the end of July and I have been asked if I am interested in contributing.

We will see how it pans out, but hey not bad for a 'little' site in the World Wide Web of the Internet..... eh?>

£300k Per Week to Test Terry's Resolve

This story just won't go away. Back in January Man City made an enquiry on the availability of Chelsea and England Captain John Terry. Chelsea told City where to go.

In the last few days the City money men knocked at Chelsea's door again and were again rebuffed, leading to reports that City will come knocking again with a staggering £40 million transfer offer and a mindblowing £300k per week for the man himself!!

Owen On His Way?

Despite speculation that Stoke City and Hull City were keen to get Michael Owen's services, it appears Sir Red Nose has beaten them to it, as Michael Owen is set for a medical at Old Trafford today.

There is no transfer fee involved as Owen is out of contract, whether he can convinced the medical men at Old Trafford that he is a risk worth taking, remains to be seen.

In four years at Newcastle, Owen only managed 70 odd appearances.
