Believe You Can Be Better

  Bob Dylan warbled about how the times they are a changin’. That song could be a metaphor for what I believe about my life right now. In my last few blogs I’ve written about how my life is so very different now to what it was fifteen, ten, even one year ago. As many […]

BASTIAN SCHWEINSTEIGER – TAKE SEVERAL BOWS SON

“Take a bow son”. A now over used phrase in football aimed at just about anyone who has achieved something in a game or in the game as a whole. But someone like Bastian Schweinsteiger shouldn’t have to take just the one. He should be able to take two, three or more. Thoroughly deserving the […]

MAKE SELF-DISCIPLINE POSITIVE

If you’re going to exercise some self-discipline it’s pointless doing something you find easy and which requires little to no effort.   For me that doesn’t count, infact, it’s tantamount to cheating. Why bother at all if you’re not going to commit to a very real and personal challenge?   I’m taking up the ...

ROONEY CAN BENEFIT FROM CRITICISM

The growing criticism of Wayne Rooney seems unending. Overweight. Lost his pace. Injury prone. A liability. Overrated. Not the same player. A disgrace. Not fit to be England Captain. Constant and illogical criticism aimed at a professional admired by his peers throughout the game. Lionel Messi recently said he regarded Rooney as a ...

DOING WHATEVER IT TAKES

Louis Van Gaal didn’t get where he is today by giving a damn. He did by doing whatever it takes. And he doesn’t give a damn about the League Cup. That much was clear when he was seen signing autographs in the wake of his Manchester United sides 4-0 defeat at MK Dons earlier this […]

WHEN FINISHING SECOND ISN’T GOOD ENOUGH

TalkSPORT Live duties on Monday night saw me enthralled at the style of football played by Chelsea as they sauntered their way to a convincing 3-1 win at Burnley. The sort of display that Chelsea will be expected to deliver throughout this season. Their Summer investments of Cesc Fabregas and Diego Costa for around £60 […]
