Something about seeing the words “Reg Vardy” in this environment made me laugh Childish, yes. Funny, ditto.

Newcastle are fools to stand by Barton Joey Barton is a dick, a yob, a violent criminal, a nasty piece of work… whatever, he’s the sort of Neanderthal you look to avoid on a Friday night out, because you know he has a short fuse. Kevin Keegan has given him a second chance, but how many […]

Keane is the final piece in Rafa Benitez’s puzzle I’ve noticed that on a lot of football forums, both Liverpool and Spurs fans are claiming that Robbie Keane is past it; Spurs fans say it because they’re sad to see him go, Liverpool fans say it because perhaps they would rather sign a younger buck […]

Premier League champs beat FA Cup holders in Africa Goals by Carlos Tevez, who also missed a penalty, and Chris Eagles saw United beat Pompey in a lively encounter in Abuja. Jermain Defoe scored an 89th-minute consolation for Harry Redknapp’s team. Click on the image below to launch the gallery…

Villa 1-0 Odense Great solo goal by Ashley Young to win the tie. More videos after the jump:

Villa reach final round of qualifiers This was a far more comfortable win than the score suggests, but any delight felt by Martin O’Neill in winning the tie will have been tempered by Wilfred Bouma’s dislocated ankle (see picture). It was a very nasty injury, and the Dutch defender will surely be out for several […]

Name the six clubs from these photos. Some are current strips, some from days gone by… Answers after the jump (no cheating)…

Villa captain booed during reserve game, but does he deserve it? Barry was booed and jeered by a section of Villa fans when he played for their reserves against Walsall a few days ago – the fact that Barry ended up at the Bescot was a sign that Martin O’Neill wanted to make an example […]

C-Ron’s tan reaching dangerous levels The Offside has noticed, brilliantly, that C-Ron is turning into an Oompa Loompa, and we don’t disagree. He’s also starting to look like a Guido. If you’re not aware of Guidos (see photo, left, for example), Urban Dictionary describes them as follows: “A sad pathetic excuse for a male; not […]

Hibs torn apart in Pep Guardiola’s first match as Barca boss Having already been knocked out of the InterToto Cup earlier this month, Hibs’ confidence is clearly low – not a great time to face Barcelona then. The vistiors gave their hosts a football lesson. Click on the image below to launch the gallery…

Chelsea kick off China tour with easy win Chelsea’s goals came from Salomon Kalou, Frank Lampard (a lovely chip from 20 yards), Franco di Santo and Shaun Wright-Phillips. The only negative for the tourists was a first-half injury to new boy Jose Boswinga. In other Chelski news, the club has reportedly offered Lampard the deal […]

Fergie thinks so… do you agree with him? Alex Ferguson thinks Chelsea have too many thirtysomethings to challenge his squad of young bucks this season. The Man Utd boss said of Big Phil Scolari’s team: “How can they accelerate beyond what they’ve done? I don’t see outstanding progress in a team that is in their 30s.” […]
