Benno (@Benglorious) There’s two good things about not having an enforced winter break in the Premiership League:  Firstly, there’s lots of games in a short period of time; and twoly, in a short period of time there are a lot of games.  Unfortunately, there’s also two bad things about footballs during Christmas:  Onely, there’s far […]

Danny, Me and Henry...

Danny, Me and Henry…

I was asked a couple of years back which other player Danny reminded me of the most and, without pausing for breath, I replied: “Henry” because he did … a little bit. It was met with such unexpectedly high levels of derision that, to save face; to pretend I wasn’t wounded – and that in fact […]

United 1 - 2 Real

United 1 – 2 Real

As the pub finally cleared on Tuesday, the Jukebox came on to this: all I could think of was the bit in Shaun of the Dead, “Aaaaaw! Who put this on?” asks Ed, to which Shaun replies through his tears, “It’s on random!” . . .

Fare Thee Well Sir Michael of Owen

Fare Thee Well Sir Michael of Owen

Football has a way of screwing with time. I know this because of one simple fact: I’m older than Michael Owen. Insane isn’t it? How could this have happened?

Zidane: A 21st Century Portrait (2006)
