Arsenal sneak friendly win over north London neighbours Nothing much to report from the game, which was played in an over-friendly spirit – Barnet don’t want to do anything to jeopardise this lucrative fixture, clearly. Aaron Ramsey made his Arsenal debut and looked the part, according to a match report. The Gunners’ two goals came […]

Name the six clubs from their shirts (some are old, some current). Answers after the jump

Rafa Benitez’s team eases to away win Liverpool scored a useful win in the first game of its pre-season tour of Switzerland. Rafa rested star men Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres, and made a stack of substitutions (eight in all), but his line-up did more than enough to merit the victory. The Premier League side’s […]

If Fat-Ron […]

… Of course he won’t, he’s just being polite Yeah, like C-Ron would ever play in MLS. Although he does seem to like the sunshine and red-carpet lifestyle, so LA could suit him. You never know… damn, I wanted to get through this post without saying “You never know”, which is just a diplomatic way […]

Fat-Ron shows off latest clown suit I find it difficult to believe that AC Milan would take a gamble on the clownish Ronaldinho, even at a cut-price £16.6m – a couple of years ago, he would have cost three times that much, at least. I mean, look at the state of him. He be Crunk’d […]

C-Ron takes to the red carpet in LA Ronaldo looks like a total Jersey Guido in this photo. In other words, he looks so vain and cocky that you want to kick away his crutches and mess up his hair. The tabloids are abuzz with the “news” that newly single C-Ron snubbed Paris Hilton. The […]

“Holy shit, that’s a horrible shirt!” scream hundereds of Milanese And you wonder why he chose sunny Milan over grey Manchester.
