Three Reasons Why The English Lose

The England football team: excellent club players who at their best display the bulldog spirit but ultimately go out on penalties, and at their worst snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. And not a bulldog’s jaws, mind you, but a chihuahua’s, or often something German and purposefully bred, like a dachshund perhaps. So given that our players, man to man, (and more recently woman to ....

Letting Their Tweets Do The Talking

Footballers. They’re not exactly famed for their articulate and erudite prose, bless ‘em. But it seems that in the twenty-first century, when many people’s concept of reading is that 140 characters (as in letters, spaces and punctuation, not three dimensional fictional constructions of humanity) are enough, there is a new, purer measure of literary success. It’s not about ....

Deconstructing The Emile Heskey Myth

Though it’s plain to see for most English fans that Emile Heskey embodies everything that’s wrong with the England style of play, it’s baffling how many people have not only bought The Emile Heskey Myth, but genuinely seem to think he’s an essential part of the side. Well, it’s time to put them straight.   The Myth goes something like this: He may not be the ....

The Pervading Shame In Our Great Game

Since his suicide in 1998, Justin Fashanu remains the one and only openly gay professional in a sport labelled by gay rights movement Stonewall as “institutionally homophobic”, after their widespread survey last year. However, while the FA are supporting The Justin Campaign, which launched on Friday, the football community are conspicuous by their absence in terms of really backing ....

Why Did Beckham Keep Quiet About His Asthma?

There’s been a lot written about David Beckham, but none of it, until now, about the fact that he has been an asthma ‘sufferer’ throughout his career. So why is this?   It seems ridiculous that in the twenty-first century, there is a still a stigma about health problems, especially ones such as asthma that are easily treatable and that can have little to no effect on a ....

The Big Issue In English Football?

  This weekend sees the zenith of the Kick It Out campaign, which brands itself as ‘Let’s Kick Racism Out of Football’ and promotes itself as ‘football’s equality and inclusion campaign’. An excellent cause, the success of English football is in many ways dependent on the success of movements such as this. However, by focusing on racism within the sport, ....

Almuniaís Catch-22

Manuel Almunia’s international career is caught in a Catch-22 situation. However, there is a way out, but it comes with no guarantees, and this could be the stumbling block both for him and for England. And potentially our chances of winning the World Cup in 2010 if he’s not in the 22.   The Arsenal goalkeeper currently has a Spanish passport, but he has never played for Spain. ....

Case Study: An International Future For English League Players?

On the eve of the new Football League season, it is worth considering the international futures of those promising players from outside of England’s top-flight, especially those now demoted to the Championship. What chance will they have of making their way into Fabio Capello’s thoughts ahead of the World Cup?   David Nugent remains the only Championship player to have been ....
