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, […]

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 […]

That wonderful little World Cup business meant that we we hardly missed the Premier League’s absence this summer, didn’t it? That said, we’re now more than ready for its return. With three stalwarts in Stoke, Swansea and West Brom departing and three old boys in Wolves, Fulham and Cardiff returning and a swathe of pricey […]

Well, crikey. What a World Cup it’s been so far, eh? We’ve had some 55+ games already, with only eight remaining. They’re eight key games, though (well, seven key games and a pointless third place play-off). If they’re anything like their predecessors, these matches will be jam-packed with incident and high drama. We’ve had netbusters, weird tactics, […]

England’s route to the knockout stages of the 2018 World Cup seems to have been directed by a Sat Nav. We got there in the end, but it wasn’t the most straightforward route and involved taking a short cut that’s probably not the easiest way to reach our destination. But we’re through to the Round […]

This World Cup is just rocketing past, isn’t it? And turning out to be a bit of a classic. We’ve seen plenty of top drawer goals and silky smooth football, but mostly – so far – it’s been all about the drama. A good deal of that has been VAR-based, admittedly. For real drama though, there’s […]

It was three points for The Three Lions on Monday evening against a rugged and rather physical Tunisian side. Altogether it was a decent first World Cup display from Gareth Southgate’s youngsters, just not an entirely convincing one. A win against one of the competition’s poorest sides on Sunday afternoon, Panama, will see England qualify from […]
