Lee Bowyer: Charlton Athletic Manager Resigns

Lee Bowyer 1

Sometimes you can see the writing on the wall.  The best soccer tipsters in the world wouldn’t put huge odds on something that was bound to happen – even though when it does everyone feels it’s a bit of a shame. Such is the case of Lee Bowyer, now ex-manager of Charlton Athletic.   He had been at the club for almost three years but, it seems, it is time for a change at Charlton Athletic.  Initially put in place as …

Manchester City Defender Oleksandr Zinchenko says Team has “Hungry Eyes” for Quadruple

Zinchenko Man City

Do you remember the song “Hungry Eyes” by Eric Carmen? You’re much more likely to remember the tune rather than the singer, but one of the verses goes like this: I’ve got hungry eyes Now I’ve got you in my sights With those hungry eyes Now, did I take you by surprise?

Bruce Lee Statue Hong Kong

The Great Bruce Lee Back in ancient times, Greeks, Romans and Egyptians would leave behind monuments to their gods and leaders (the roles were often combined).  Sportsmen would sometimes be depicted on mosaics, frescoes or pottery but when it came to statuary there is virtually no extant examples of named sportspeople.  In modern times, things have changed – we still put up statues to exemplary leaders but sportsmen and women have been elevated to the point when often, due to …

Law and Disorder: British Football in the Twenty First Century

12Thman

If you have never or rarely been to a football match in the United Kingdom, then this film will either shock you in to vowing that English soccer is not an experience you want to put on your bucket list or you may decide that you want to experience this at first hand. Either way, you might be surprised to discover that much of the fun starts before the match – and the word is used rather loosely here: this …

Roger Bannister – The Four Minute Mile

He grew up to be one of the most celebrated cricketers of all time, topping the Test batting rankings a number of times and seizing and holding several records, …

Marcus Rashford: Back the F*** Off, Daily Mail

Marcus Rashford Daily Mail Houses

A few short months ago not many outside of the football world had heard of Marcus Rashford.   Yet the 23-year-old Manchester United forward succeeded in doing something that the government’s collective conscience had failed to do.  He ensured that kids in the UK who were in real need would continue to get free school meals during their holidays.  After beginning a petition on the UK Parliament website which attracted hundreds of thousands of signatures, the government did a U-turn.  And …
