Dang, 2018. With the best World Cup in recent memory and the various thrills n’ spills of the Premier League and the millions of other football competitions throughout the world, you really delivered. Amongst other things, we¬†saw someone other than Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi win the Ballon D’Or for the first time in a […]

It seems strange to end the boxing year with what might just be ‘The Heavyweight Fight of 2018’ and it not feature Anthony Joshua. But that’s where we are. With Joshua not long ago having seen off Povetkin and no fight between Joshua and Tyson Fury or Deontay Wilder being arranged, it’s left for those […]

Christmas. It’s all fun and games, isn’t it? Or, at least, it should be. But while it may well be the most magical time of the year, it can often be a bit of a disappointment too. Sure, the time off work and the eating and drinking at home is usually pretty great, but one […]

It may be the lesser of the two European competitions, the slightly uglier younger sister of the impossibly glamorous Champions League, but the UEFA Europa League is still European football and it still brings us some pretty damn fine sporting action. And who else is doing that on a Thursday night, eh…? We’ve seen the […]

It’s ‘the most senseless competition in the world’, according to Jurgen Klopp. But while the Liverpool manager might not be the Nations League’s biggest fan, the rest of us quite like it. Sure, it’s no World Cup, but the games are better than meaningless ol’ friendlies, aren’t they…? The first round brought plenty of goals, […]

91 years on from the very first Ryder Cup – and some 39 years on from the ‘British’ team allowing in players from across Europe, we find golf a rather different game. Its rules haven’t altered all that much down the years, but the quality and enormous sums of money involved in the sport certainly […]

The latest of Anthony Joshua’s fights is upon once again and we could be in for another tight and bruising encounter. There was a time, not so long ago, that AJ’s ring foes were little more than bums. But as he’s risen up the ranks, collected all the heavyweight titles and surged ever closer to […]

Without being jaw droppingly magnificent, Real Madrid have managed to win three Champions League trophies on the bounce now. But with the departures of both Cristiano Ronaldo and Zinedine Zidane, surely a fourth in a row is unlikely? Well, we’ll find out soon enough. Only the 2018/19 Champions League is upon us. Before we start […]

Football is pretty much set in stone, isn’t it? You’ve got your World Cup, your Euros, your FA Cup, League Cup and leagues. Other than the chopping up of The Championship, League One and League Two a few years ago (and arguably the rebranding of the Europa League and previously the Champions League), the biggest […]
