Fallout from a, disappointing for some, end to the transfer window provides us with our first banner. The Sun’s take on the story was less about the player, Riyad Mahrez, than his team who (according to the paper) are increasingly miffed about his not showing up to tra...

Let's go and see some football, they said.

Football? Why would I want to?

It's all the rage, they said. Billions of pounds, millions of viewers, thousands of fans screaming.

I don't think that is for me.

It is, they said; the stadium is the pride of Hull. It's an arena for...

The Independent teased us with what sounded like an arty documentary when describing the Chelsea manager’s efforts to navigate his team out of the doldrums. 'Conte’s late-night blues’ BBC4 at 22:00; perhaps with a soothing Bob Harris narration and a large dollop of arc...

Before the Premier League became the destination of choice outside of a handful of giant European clubs, foreign players had something of a reputational problem in England. Because while often “sublimely gifted” suspicions persisted that they lacked both a fully develo...

'January. Sick and tired, you've been hanging on me,' as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang may well be singing, right now (assuming he’s a fan of early 70s soft rock). Blue Horseshoe certainly loves the Dortmund player and so do our writers with The Express leading the pack wi...

With the transfer window now open we could have filled this week’s spot with nothing but headlines concerning the month’s musical chairs merry-go-round. But that was before Liverpool crashed Manchester City’s party and turned the music off.

The big boys had at each othe...

Historians always tell us that people living in ancient societies were a lot more like us than we commonly think. I am sure they are right and our forebears certainly liked their sport. Still, I find the idea of chin-scratching Greeks bursting into song while watching...

With two London derbies featuring the same teams in an eight day stretch, the back pages were bound to focus on the capital tussle. The first Arsenal and Chelsea match-up inspired The Metro to boast of ‘One Hec Of A Night’ before going on to give a drooling account of...

I remember once hearing Tim Vickery when describing some particularly flashy winger say that he would rather beat a defender and then go back and beat him a second time instead of crossing the ball into one of his teammates in the box. It is tempting to think the same...
