Queen supports Arsenal

April 23rd, 2007

The Queen has revealed that she has supported Arsenal for more than 50 years. The Sun claims that the Queen has followed in the footsteps of the late Queen Mother by following the Gunners. A ‘senior royal source’ confirmed that Her Majesty’s admiration for former player Denis Compton had led to her being a Gooner […]

Odra WodzisÅ‚aw striker Adam Czerkas settled his side’s match against Wisla Plock this weekend with a 25-yard strike courtesy of his backside. The former Queens Park Rangers loanee’s cheeky goal was not quite as impressive as it may sound at first but as flukes go, it was pretty good.

You can keep your cricket, rugby, F1 and any other sport. This is why football is the only beautiful game in town. So Italian, so emotional, so damn funny…

manu%202.jpgAs well as Ronaldo taking the individual spoils, the PFA Team of the Season was also announced last night. It makes sweet reading for Man Utd fans, with no less than eight United players making the cut: Edwin van der Sar; Gary Neville, Rio Ferdinand, Nemanja Vidic, Patrice Evra; Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Cristiano Ronaldo (all Man Utd), Steven Gerrard (Liverpool); Didier Drogba (Chelsea), Dimitar Berbatov (Spurs)

ronaldopfa.jpgAs expected, Cristiano Ronaldo has won both the PFA Young Player of the Year and the Player of the Year awards. Ronaldo said: ‘It is a special night. It is amazing and a big honour for me to win trophies like this in the English Premier League. I am very proud.

Good weekend Celtic Wrapped up their inevitable SPL title with a last gasp victory over mighty Kilmarnock. West Ham The only side in the bottom-half of the table to pick up three points. The Hammers gave themselves a lifeline wih victory over Everton. David James The Portsmouth keeper eventually broke David Seaman’s Premiership record by […]

Well done Jamo – Portsmouth’s 0-0 draw at Aston Villa this afternoon (a deadly dull match) takes you up to 142 clean sheets, a new Premiership record. You got there in the end. Talking of clean sheets…

_42832615_celticceleb203i.jpgCongrats to Celtic, who wrapped up the SPL title today, but come on, there are teams in League One that could run Celtic closer than Rangers and co. The SPL is a joke league right now.

The ref was right to disallow this goal during MAn U’s 1-1 draw with Middlesbrough on Saturday. Technically Solskjaer was interfering with Schwarzer’s kick, although you have to admire the Norwegian’s cheek. George Best did a similar thing when he knocked the ball out of Gordon Banks’ hand playing for Northern Ireland against England. That […]

You have to wonder what this referee would have wanted to see in order to call the game off. Waterlogged doesn’t cover it! At least the fans who put up with 90 minutes of swamp wrestling also got to see the magnificent goal celebration at the end of the clip. [Rob Parker]

Italian football leading the fight against diving. Would you credit it? Well, Inter Milan striker Adriano has been given a retrospective two-match ban for conning the referee into giving a penalty in a game against Roma on Wednesday night. As if that wasn’t justice enough Roma also won the game 1-3!

Everton manager David Moyes is suing Wayne Rooney over comments made in the Manchester United star’s autobiography. Moyes issued a writ at the High Court claiming Rooney’s book – My Story So Far -had “injured his professional and personal reputation” and caused him distress. The action relates to Rooney’s account of his transfer from Goodison […]

As our buddies at 101GreatGoals point out, football talent-spotting is getting a bit ridiculous now. It’s all very well enjoying the skills of a 12-year-old Enzo Zidane, but Charlie Edwards is three years old.

SpecialOne.jpgThe most lovable man in football, Chelsea chief exec Peter Kenyon, has revealed the club will NOT sack boss Jose Mourinho this summer. Kenyon told Chelsea TV: ‘Jose’s got a contract until 2010 and we’re not going to sack him. He’s got the full support of the board, that’s really important… We’ve been linked with something like 14 managers now I think, but we’ve not got a list and we’re not looking.’

whu_1164106448_chairman1.jpgThe H List may not be as updated as regularly as some blogs, but in this case it’s about quality not quantity. West Ham fan ‘HeadHammer Shark’ is a lifelong season ticket-holder at the Boleyn and it shows in his posts, which bear all the hallmarks of a man who has supported an underperforming team for a long time. Anyway, The H List is very well-written indeed and a must-read for any genuine West Ham fan.

man_on_moon.gif1 ‘There have been cup shocks before but this would be up there with man landing on the moon.’
Aidy Boothroyd knows how to instil confidence in his Watford team. Man U beat the Hornets 4-1 in the FA Cup. And wasn’t the moon landing meticulously planned, rather than a shock?

JohnTerry_203132.jpgWell Pies readers, you’re slowly building an invincible Premership team of the season. So far you’ve chosen Petr Cech in goal, Steve Finnan at right-back and yesterday you selected crazy Frenchman Patrice Evra at left-back, with 36% of the vote (at time of posting). Three solid choices.

_42519941_adebayor203.jpgTOTTENHAM v ARSENAL TO HAVE OVER 2.5 GOALS (21-20)
A bet that has now collected in a staggering 17 of Tottenham’s last 19 matches is worth following again at a highly generous looking odds-against. All three of this season’s clashes have featured at least three goals and with Spurs still scoring and conceding for fun that is unlikely to change here.

Did somebody order a fit Michael Owen? [Rob Parker]

Like the best Photoshoppers, the most successful Fantasy Football managers often have good attention to detail and too much time on their hands. This serves only to prove that the likes of Tommy and Matt M have a good eye for a player who might pick up a few extra points on a given weekend. […]

Lionel Messi has already proved that impossible is nothing, and here he is doing it for cold hard corporate cash…

img_david_dein.jpgI suppose this is, like, big news to some people – like Arsenal fans and other Premiership vice-chairmen. To me, it has about as much to do with football as… erm… something that has not very much to do with football. Cricket, for example. In other words, I could hardly care less that Dein has stormed off in a huff.
