Is it my imagination or is Jordan Henderson getting a lot more confident about hitting high risk passes? Or is he just getting more opportunity to hit them in areas of the pitch where losing...

Courtois was where he was for a reason. Maybe he hadn't been warned that Charlie Adam could do that to him though.

He's likely to be 4th choice striker right now, behind Rooney, Welbeck and Kane. Not that I think Welbeck is better than Sturridge, but he seems to work better with Rooney (which might just be down...

"Anyone capable of getting elected should under no account be allowed to do the job".

The only vaguely nice thing I can say about David Cameron is that at least he's not Michael Gove.

At the time he wasn't far off but it was completely jumping the gun on a few of the players (Sakho, Can, Lallana) and still a bit premature on the likes of Allen. Besides which, I'd far rather a...

Ex-players/pundits/commentators would do well to actually read the rules of the game once in a while. I'm getting a bit sick of the 1960s "he touched the ball first" routine some of them still keep...

If Raheem Sterling was out to advertise why he's not worth any kind of pay rise he damn well managed it in that game. He'd struggle to finish a half-eaten cheeseburger just now.

I'm honestly baffled as to why Lallana isn't getting more game time. He's a wonderful player, but he does need players around him to actually move when he has the ball.

It's a shame with Jones, as I feel he has the potential to be a top class centre back but he's one of those people for whom being a defender probably came a little too easily when he was younger when...

Yahoo has been offering up click bait, ad revenue chasing, drivel an awful lot since Marissa Meyer took over as CEO. This seems to be entirely in keeping with their current approach.

I just find him a bit charmless, a bit overly earnest, lacking in self awareness and lacking a sense of humour about himself.

It doesn't help that I watched a bit of one of his programs where he put...

I don't think he has the passing range for that position (maybe he does but he's just not confident enough to play longer passes very often) and also I don't think he's keen playing with his back to...
