Andy Carroll – Worth Money? Do Me A Bloomin’ Favour!

September 17, 2010

Let’s be honest here, most football transfer rumours originate in the minds of gawky journos who desperately make up this rubbish to stop them having to write another feature on how bloody good Paul Scholes is. Case in point of this rubbish – Andy Carroll to Tottenham?! Christ, what next, Tony Hibbert to Barcelona?

Anyway, some of these rumo […]

What injury crisis?

December 9, 2009

15 players out. Michael Carrick as a sweeper. 5’8 Patrice Evra at centre-back. Up against the German champions in their own back yard. The result? 3-1 win, only Manchester United. Much had been made of United’s injury problems in the lead up to last nights game but Alex Ferguson once again showed that whatever team he picks they will take some […]

Enough about Michael Owen, what about Wayne Rooney?

July 10, 2009

The England star must be left feeling frustrated and livid that United have signed a new striker, just over a week after he pleaded with Sir Alex Ferguson for a chance to play centre-forward for the Red Devils. […]

Michael Owen: The resurrection

July 3, 2009

I’ve made no secret on here of my admiration for Michael Owen. But even I, a big Owen fan, was conceding that he’s career may finally be going down hill just a few months ago. Out of the England squad and looking like a shadow of his former self in a horrible Newcastle team, it seemed the Michael Owen we all knew had finally been laid to rest t […]

10 things I HATE about Newcastle United

May 20, 2009

1 – Hair Cuts

Newcastle players over the last 30 years have been renowned to have rubbish haircuts, really starting with Kevin Keegans Perm and Terry McDermotts… well….”mop”. Since then they have had some terrible barnets. Andy Carroll and Fabricio Coloccini are the most recent victims of having rubbish haircuts but also I need to men […]

Is it the end for Michael Owen?

May 7, 2009

What’s next for the boy wonder?

I’ve had a running bet with a friend of mine that Michael Owen will go on and break Bobby Charlton’s goal-scoring record for England. For as I can remember I have backed up my opinion and defended Owen, despite what ever adversity has faces him. But after Sunday, even I, an ardent Owen fan feel like it could r […]

Mickey Marbles – Taking the Michael

March 31, 2009

I hate that I do!

Introducing Mickey Marbles, a grumpy old Northerner who once had trials for Donacaster Rovers in 1965, he didn’t make it and has been bitter ever since. He remembers the good old days when footballers were real men, they could sink 10 pints the night before a game, could take a tackle and get by on 2 bob per week.

It is all doom and gloom for the Toon!

March 27, 2009

Going, going, gone?

A year ago I wrote my first UKFF article. It was on the status of Newcastle United. They were 3 points above the drop zone with only 9 games left to play and to make it worse they had a hard run in! Much has changed at Newcastle since then, in fact so much has changed, that they find themselves in almost exactly the same posi […]

Why Defoe should be Fab’s main man

March 19, 2008

Is this the end for Boy Wonder?

Like my sex life, it’s been a while but I’m back this week to run over the question on every Englishman’s lips, no, not when will Dexy finally get a shag or will Becks get his 100th cap, but the issue according to St Michael. With the 3 Lions facing 11 frogs next week, will Fabio again ignore Owen and leave hi […]
