Robin Friday – A True Football Legend

Written by
Robin Friday is a footballer whose name will be relatively unknown with many football fans, he played lower league football starting his football career at the long gone Walthamstow Avenue, making his debut in 1971 before moving on to Hayes.  After gaining a glowing reputation in non-league football he moved to Reading in 1973 playing 121 games and scoring 46 goals. Then finally he moved on to Cardiff making only 21 appearances and scoring 6 goals. Friday hardly offered a high return on his £30,000 transfer fee considering his appearances were made over one year.

Alex Higgins – Remembered

Written by
I remember being in St Kentigerns Irish Social Club in Fallowfield, Manchester in 1982. I was 16 years old, and just about to taste my first pint of ale (under age of course) but that was the way back then. It was a fairly busy night, as they all were back in the 80s – nobody had much money, though everyone had 48p for a pint. How times and prices have changed.

A Nod from God – Maradona

Written by
So the World Cup is about to start and Diego Maradona is once again back in the spotlight. His Argentina side are brimming with world class players most notably in the striker department with FIFA footballer of the year Lionel Messi, Carlos Tevez, Higuain, not forgetting Liverpool's Mascherano but even that's not enough for some of the Argentina nation who are dismissive of their chances at this year's extravaganza.

National stadium - National disgrace.

As the sun peeped through my blinds last Saturday morning, I had a spring in my step at the thought of my football club, Manchester City, going back to Wembley for the second time in a month to contest the FA Cup final and to hopefully win the cup for the first time in 42 years.

Neil Lennon – We Can Ask Why

Written by
/neil lennon paul gallagher zani 1.

First things first. I am a Celtic fan and proud of it but I’m not stupid enough to write about this with a one-sided point of view. What is happening to Neil Lennon, Paddy McCourt, Nial McGinn and various members of the Celtic community by a few low educated scumbags is totally wrong. Who in their right mind sends bullets, death threats and NAIL bombs in the post to a football manager or football players
