Football is a funny old game – a brighter future ahead for Hull City AFC

Football is a funny old game – a brighter future ahead for Hull City AFC

I was on a train frantically faffing around with my digital radio as my signal was in and out listening to Hull City vs Manchester United and it was in stoppage time that ‘Johnny-on-the-spot’ Marcus Rashford tapped in after good byline work from Wayne Rooney to deservedly win the game for Jose Mourinho’s men. Hull’s players, fans and hierarchy would have been devastated after a herculean performance but the right result was a win for the Reds of Manchster. On another day the spoils would have been shared, but lets be honest…

Soccer Saturday – my last chance?

Soccer Saturday – my last chance?

We all have issues Big Sam! You only have to pick your new England squad every now and again though, starting with your first one next week. We have to pick our Super 6 predictions every week! Who’s the most stressed? Anyway, another week and I’m still here, thanks to Two Footed Tackle again. How are you all keeping this weekend? Did you enjoy the football last night?

Super Super 6 this week

Super Super 6 this week

Another week comes and goes and I’m back again thanks to Two Footed Tackle, how are you all doing this weekend? Did you enjoy the football last night? I knew I should have had a little flutter on the Manchester United v Southampton game. I got the score wrong as thought United would win 3-0, however all day I was saying Zlatan would score two goals and I was right. If you get something in your end like that you should always be betting on it. Never mind, I’ll make sure…

A time and opportunity for some redemption on home soil

A time and opportunity for some redemption on home soil

The Olympics in Rio has had some negative press pre-tournament and whilst there have been odd instances and issues once it has begun, the sport has been the main story with some outstanding performances across the competing nations. Brazil as the home country have won three gold medals at the time of this blog being posted, but the one they crave more than any other is the men’s football Olympic title, the only international competition their side has never won. In London 2012 they made the final but lost surprisingly to Mexico…

My Super 6 predictions this week as Premier League starts

Hello again, I’m back again thanks to Two Footed Tackle, how are you all doing? Did you enjoy the football last weekend and of course the midweek action in the League Cup and Super Cup? I definitely did and just about did okay/average in the opening weekend of the Super 6 season. I got a total of 9 points with just the one correct score of Bristol City 2 v Wigan 1, with a couple of other predictions close. However I was way out with two games after there was…

FA Cup Extra Preliminary Round

Follow @KJFootballBlogs  –   Hello, my name is Kristian and after doing my (preview/review) blogs on this site covering all the games of Euro 2016. I decided to start a new project. To try and attend as many rounds of the FA Cup 2016/2017 season starting from the very beginning. It may surprise a few of you, but as most people were getting ready to watch their team start their league campaign last Saturday.

My Super 6 predictions

My Super 6 predictions

Hello there, my name is Oscar and I absolutely love watching football. However, I’ll be honest, I’m not much of a blogger or writer, but what I do do is predict football scores. Well that is what I think I can do. I’ve been reasonably successful over the years and after speaking to and predicting for Two Footed Tackle during Euro 2016. They asked me if I’d like to continue doing my predictions. Here goes then, starting with the opening weekend of SKY Sports’ Super Six games and then the Community Shield. With…

Wayne Rooney a celebration of 14+ years

Wayne Rooney a celebration of 14+ years

On Wednesday 3rd August Wayne Rooney has his Manchester United testimonial match against his boyhood club Everton. It was in October 2002 that his late wonder goal winner against, then champions, Arsenal whilst playing for the Toffeemen brought him to the wider attention of the footballing world, though people within the game were more than aware of his talent by that stage. In 2004 he moved to Old Trafford, where he has stayed ever since, announcing himself with a hat-trick on debut and the 12 seasons that have followed have been trophy laden and…

Value in football is not always an immediate thing – time usually tells

Value in football is not always an immediate thing – time usually tells

What is value nowadays in the transfer market? One things for sure you need to work at it, with good scouting and having people in place who understand the market, unfortunately there are not many of those about. With a rumoured 100m + deal for Paul Pogba to Manchester United in the offing (though I will only believe it if it actually happens), the thing I seem to be hearing the most is that this guy is not worth the money. Was Rio Ferdinand worth 30m at the time he went to…

Kante To Chelsea: The Cheque Book Beats Ambition Again

Kante To Chelsea: The Cheque Book Beats Ambition Again

It wasn’t exactly unexpected, but N’Golo Kante’s move to Chelsea is certainly a disappointment. Kante was one of the main reasons why Leicester won the league last season. Having arrived there as an unknown quantity this time last season, Kante took the Premier League by storm, winning rave reviews as he formed a one man screen in front of the Foxes’ defence as they defied the odds to become champions. It was a superb story for all football romantics, and made several Leicester players into household names. This inevtiably would…
