God at the peak of his powers As first touches go, they don’t come much better than Fowler’s backheel nutmeg, which leaves Steve Staunton looking even more clueless than he did in his time as manager of Ireland. The finish was sweet too. When Fowler was in this form, no other English striker could touch […]

Here’s what the Hammers will wear on their travels next season. We like, a lot You can’t beat a bit of claret and blue – it’s a classic English football colour combo, used to great effect by Umbro for their latest West Ham away shirt. We think it’s a very smart kit, simple and tasteful. […]

Fergie wins LMA Manager of the Year award Man Utd’s boss has been voted Manager of the Year by the League Manager’s Association, a justified reward for his team winning their 10th Premier League title. But did he do a better job than all of the other 19 managers? Who would have got your shout? […]

Like some wise old schoolmaster, Pies grades each Premier League team based on their 07/08 campaign. Here’s part two: Man City (9th) Started brilliantly, finished with a whimper. Overall though, Sven-Goran Eriksson did a good job of restoring pride to the sky-blue half of Manchester. A couple of his signings were notable successes – Elano […]

“Sometimes on a day off I go to the doughnut shop. When we play at home, I go there after the game and it’s like a doughnut party! Everyone is eating doughnuts inside their cars – it’s like a disco!” Arsenal’s Cesc Fabregas reveals just how scientific a modern player’s diet can be. “Had I […]

Pies rates each Premier League team based on the 07/08 campaign Arsenal (3rd) Played some quite beautiful football at times but faded badly in the last quarter of the season, after leading the pack – Arsene Wenger should have added to his squad in January.

Congrats to Man Utd for winning their 10th Premier League title – they are deserved champions, for sure. But which of their players did the most to contribute to their success this season?

Happel Stadium, Vienna: Almost 2,000 people took of their clothes to pose for US photographer Spencer Tunick, who’s famous for contriving such acts of mass public nudity. My favourite model is the tubby old guy on the right, who seems to be using the shoot as a cunning way of staring at boobs.

Sky dubs fake commentary to pump up C-Ron’s profile According to the people behind this YouTube clip, Sky used commentary from goals scored by Didier Drogba (vs Everton), Wayne Rooney (vs Newcastle), and Thierry Henry (vs Manchester United) to make C-Ron seem even more amazing than he already is. Sky Sports in “over-the-top, contrived hype […]

For every winner there has to be a loser. And unfortunately, in the Premier League this weekend, there will be one winner and two losers. If you take away Derby, who have been relegated since about October, it is one of the most competitive relegation battles in years. On the last day of the season Birmingham, Reading, Fulham and (if Reading manage to score about nine goals) Bolton can all still be relegated. The question is: who’s going down?

It is well and truly crunch time, Pies readers. After a season full of ups and downs it has all come down to the last match of the season. By 5pm on Sunday we will know the identity of the 2007-08 Premier League champions. The question is, who will you be putting your free £10 bet on? Manchester United have won all the plaudits for their football and have been the pacesetters since the wheels came off on Arsenal’s campaign. But slow and steady Chelsea have kept plugging away and in contention when it matters. So who is going to end up with the trophy on Sunday evening?
