  • Celtic want to play with the big boys November 30th, 2006 Miscellaneous

    http://im.edirectory.co.uk/products/1092/i/cufcmousemat.jpg It would seem that Celtic want to be a proper club and start playing with the big boys now that they’re in the nosebleed territory of the Champion’s League. It seems that they’re for getting out of Scotland’s crappy league (contrary to what Gordon Strachan thinks mind you) Celtic’s chief executive Peter Lawwell insists that they are well positioned for any new developments in European football. “There are maybe five or six clubs with global recognition and we are one of them,” he said. “We are a…

  • Umbro dog football advert November 30th, 2006 Miscellaneous

  • Phil Neville plays the ‘yes’ or ‘no’ game November 29th, 2006 Everton

    This is hilarious! I’m sure everyone is familiar with the ‘yes’ or ‘no’ game (well, everyone except Phil Neville). The very basic concept around which the game revolves is that you are asked questions and cannot use the words ‘yes’ or ‘no’ in your answer. So, contrary to the footage you are about to watch, […]

  • Fabio Cannavaro Fanatico figurine November 29th, 2006 Kits & fashion

    Why not celebrate Fabio Cannavaro winning the Ballon d’Or (I could have sworn it used to be called European Footballer of the Year!) with this Fanatico football figurine?

  • Yobo’s behind watches Charlton goal November 29th, 2006 Everton

    When Charlton’s Andy Reid scored against Everton at the weekend he must have been thrilled. By the same token, David Moyes must have been furious when he saw the ball whistle past Yobo’s arse as he lazily tied up his boots whilst an attack was on. Time for a spot of pointing and laughing I […]
