Last Saturday saw Eddie Jones’ England side storm past Scotland to equal New Zealand’s impressive eighteen game unbeaten run. In doing so, they secured back-to-back Six Nations Championships for the first time since they managed the feat under Sir Clive Woodward way back in 2001. Now, only Ireland stand in the way of Dylan Hartley’s men […]

Arsenal fans aren’t best pleased at the moment, are they? If you listened to them in the week – following their second 5-1 drubbing by Bayern Munich in as many weeks – the message was clear… ‘The club’s being destroyed’. Quite how fans of Charlton, Coventry, Blackpool, Leyton Orient or Blackburn might react to such […]

Liverpool versus Arsenal is a tie that’s positively drenched in history, memories and goals. It’s just one of those fixtures, isn’t it? When you hear that these two teams are taking on each other, you sit up and take note of when it’s on and what time kick off is (it’s this Saturday at 5.30pm, […]

This Saturday’s big boxing clash sees Creed star Tony Bellew stepping up from Cruiserweight to Heavyweight in order to fight his fierce foe David Haye. But just how much do The Hayemaker and ‘Bomber’ Bellew really dislike each other? Well, the hatred certainly seems real. This bout has been lined up for a good few months […]

What are you doing on Sunday afternoon? That’s right, you’re watching the League Cup final. Let’s face it, that’s what everyone still calls it, isn’t it? It’s technically the ‘EFL Cup’ final now, isn’t it? But whether it’s the EFL Cup, the Worthington’s Cup, the Rumbelows Cup or even the Milk Cup (remember that one?), most […]

St. Valentine’s Day is upon us once again. It’s a time for love, romance and annoyingly overpriced set menus at high street chain restaurants. While the world’s thoughts turn to affairs of the heart, we still very much remain focused on the world of sport here at Rileys. But that world’s not without its doe-eyed fluffiness too, […]

There are fourteen games left of the 2016/17 Premier League season and Chelsea lead by a full nine points. Most football fans, bookmakers and clubs are poised to write off the title as the West Londoners’ after this weekend.

So, then. Leicester City. It’s not going all that well for them this year, is it? Alright, they’re still in the FA Cup and have weirdly dominated their Champions League fixtures (well, most of them). But their league form? Almost predictably poor. At the time of writing, Claudio Ranieri’s Foxes sit 15th, just six points […]

It’s the third round of the FA Cup, that special time of year that sees the minnows of the English game facing off against the big boys.
