I think we’ve got a quote to beat all of Ian Holloway‘s… no really. Accrington Stanley skipper Peter Cavanagh has revealed this little gem ahead of The Accies return to League footy after playing FIFA07 on his PS2. "The likenesses in the game are superb. I am really happy with mine but I don’t think […]

Around 700 Plymouth Argyle fans made the long trip to Sunderland last week. They were rewarded not only with a 3-2 away win, but also the promise of a pint from Pilgrims boss/Who Ate All the Pies hero Ian Holloway: ‘I hope I see one or two of those on the Barbican over the next […]

So, Premier League whipping boys new boys Reading will be taking to their new Premiership surroundings in their famed blue and white hoops. It’s not a bad kit actually, seeing the side opt for something simple and effective. It’s got the inclusion of an 80s collar too, so would-be rude boys can turn it up […]

Let’s have a look at Riise’s ridiculous goal again. If you want to know how good it is, imagine this. If it was you or me, we’d be throwing up and having an asthma attack before we’d reached the halfway line. Mof Gimmers

So, an uninspired Chelsea got beaten by a lively looking Liverpool outfit yesterday. What does that tell us? Well, not a great deal as a season shouldn’t be judged in pre-season, but a niggling thought in my head came to the fore again. Will Chelsea crack under the immense pressure of the upcoming season? We […]

Steve McClaren has dropped David Beckham from his first England squad. OK, Stevie Mac, we get the picture – you’re your own man. But is this decision a message to the national press (the message being, ‘I’ve stepped out of Sven’s shadow at last…’) or a genuine decision based on McClaren’s belief that Beckham can […]

Tottenham may have backed down but Glenn Roeder has now admitted an interest in Inter’s Nigerian striker Obafemi Martins. There’s one thing I know about Martins: in Pro Evolution Soccer, he’s famously blessed with speed and acceleration stats of 99 (the highest you can get). Here’s a video of him in action for Inter:

A recent poll of members of the official England Supporters’ Club shows that England fans are split as to who they want to captain the national team: 51% want John Terry and 46% want Steven Gerrard (Gary Neville and Frank Lampard make up the numbers, with 2% and 1% respectively). I would choose John Terry, […]

Man United are after a replacement for Ruud Rum, and let’s be honest, there’s not many who can match his strike rate. The latest from the rumour mill is that Sir Alex is chasing after Adriano, the most un-Brazillian striker in the world… but he aint half good. Mof Gimmers

So the Cashley Cole saga drags on. This seems to have been going on longer than Big Brother, and somehow, it’s managed to be more farcical. "Our offer is an excellent offer for an excellent player. It’s in their hands. They say no and no is no," said Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho in the latest […]

David James wants out! He wants to leave Man City, and is looking like he wants a move to Pompey. Stuart Pearce has said to the BBC "David has expressed a wish to leave. I spoke with him when we were away in China. It is not an issue about Manchester City, there are other […]

We’re going to play a game. First, press play on the YouTube video below and close your eyes. See if you can guess when Christiano Ronaldo gets the ball in Man Yoo’s friendly against Oxford… Mof Gimmers

Good news Man United fans, bad news everyone else. Wayne Rooney and Paul Scholes are available to start the season after their sendings off in the friendly against Porto. The friendly was played in Holland and the Dutch FA’s report to its English counterparts was delayed in the post, so the duo can play on […]

Trevor Mitchell has just broken his own Guinness record for ‘world’s fastest haircut’, snipping (ho ho) his previous best by 12 seconds to a barely believable 59 seconds. If you’re wondering what this has to do with football, Mitchell’s victim model was none other than Kevin Keegan. The pair have known each other since Mitchell […]

I think footballers are like footballs (stick with me on this): They used to be hard ‘n’ solid and made of thick leather. You wouldn’t mess with one. Today, however, they’re made of fancy plastic and fly about all over the place. Yes, 21st-century footballers are a motley crew of lightweight divas and overhyped divers. […]

Cristiano Ronaldo has had his first run-out since the World Cup. Boo, hiss, he’s behind you etc. Winky played for 72 minutes of Man U’s 4-1 friendly win against Oxford, and scored a couple of tasty goals with curling shots. Apart from a few boos (Man U fans cheered him, natch) from the panto-loving Oxford […]

Does he indeed? The cheeky sod. It’s a sad sign of the shift in power in football when a top player feels free to go to the national press – The Sun, in this case – and demand his manager makes some new signings. I respect Thierry Henry, but this outburst serves only to undermine […]

A lot of clubs have shelled out a lot of cash on new players for the coming Premiership season. Because, as all managers say these days, if you stay still you get left behind. I agree with that to a certain extent, but I’m also a great believer in continuity – to this day I […]

Portsmouth boss Harry Redknapp wants to bring veteran keeper David James to Fratton Park. Pompey’s current first-choice keeper Dean Kiely isn’t happy about this. In fact, he’s very pissed off. Kiely told the Portsmouth News: ‘I think it would be a little bit of a travesty, certainly on the back of what I did last […]

OK, here’s a fun little game called PredictTheTable. The rules are simple: predict what the final Premiership order will be come the end of the season. Your mates do the same and you compare results with them to see who does the best. Whoever gets more points, wins. It’s free to enter, so check it […]

Found this image of Gary Lineker’s grandfather on the net. The family resemblance is uncanny…

Uefa has confirmed that Liverpool will play their Champions League qualifier against Maccabi Haifa at a neutral ground. The match was wisely switched because of the ongoing conflict in the Israel. The UEFA statement read that "Uefa has decided no European competition matches can be staged in Israel until further notice." The tie may now […]

Rumours are rife of Franck Ribery’s move to the Premiership. Both Man Urinal and The Gooners have been sniffing around, despite statements to the contrary. He’s certainly an exciting prospect and would fit in at any of the top clubs. Here’s why. Mof Gimmers Technorati Tags Ribery Man United Arsenal
