Off-field squabbles continue to overshadow Blackpool’s on-field success

As per usual at Blackpool Football Club; off the field issues have been talked about more than events on the pitch. Last week; two supporters were jailed and handed football banning orders for their actions on the final day of last season, the infamous Huddersfield Town abandonment. Now while you obviously cannot condone their actions, it is hugely disappointing to see such punishments handed out. The Oyston family acting like this...

Out with the old, in with the new – QPR’s transfer business was a breath of fresh air

It may be worth only whispering this; but it seems that there is a faint glimmer of hope at QPR! Anyone who follows football will know that QPR’s manner of trading over the past few years is to do it the hard, stupid way. Now whilst the club is still far from perfect, recent events have encouraged me. Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink’s team have not been setting the league alight, drawing far too many games, but the team have become harder to...

In my blog at the start of the month; I suggested that a centre-back, right-back and a goalkeeper were necessary for our promotion push. Following the close of the transfer window; two of the three mentioned were signed with Ryan Fulton, a young shot-stopper, and Kieron Freeman, an...

Che must stay with the Blades

Losing your best players is always painful, frustrating and disheartening. So it would be a great shame if Sheffield United fans were feeling these emotions on transfer deadline day. Unfortunately, falling down the echelons of the English game has seen the Blades become a selling club. Promising talents come and go in a flash. And with Nigel Adkins planning to offload in January’s transfer window, any United supporter who has seen...

A Q&A with Sheffield Wednesday fan and Apprentice contestant, Natalie Dean

To say 2016 has started with a bang would be an understatement for most Wednesdayites. Unbeaten in both league and cup and continued good run of home form has not gone unnoticed. Plus, Jack Hunt, Barry Bannan, Athde Nuhiu, Sam Hutchinson and Glenn Loovens have all pledged their future at Hillsborough, signing long-term deals. This has certainly exceeded my new year expectations, with more to come I am sure. Remember the transfer...
