The Franco Accusation; The Miku Speculation; The Ferrando Initiation

I go through football news like all of you. Us bloggers need to do it much more than you guys. How else do you think we allow ourselves to pretend to know so much? That is our hubris – “that we read news”. Lame but true. So in the most recent of my trawls, three little titbits stood out – the Franco Accusation, the Miku Speculation, and the Ferrando Initiation.

World Cup Shocks; Habas the Henchman; “Nonsense” Trophy & a Couple of Signings

I was conflicted about this post. I was unsure whether I should write it before the beginning of the Round of 16 or after. For the record, I couldn’t make a decision.

Super Machans Stifle the Blunt Men of Steel: Jamshedpur FC 0 – 1 Chennaiyin FC Review

Jamshedpur FC’s Attacking Woes Continue; Chennaiyin FC Show How to Kill Off Opponents…Again

I like technical games but let me be honest. During the festive season, you don’t really want to see technical games. You want stuff that gets your blood pumping and brings you to the edge of your seat. Yesterday’s game between Chennaiyin FC and Jamshedpur FC wasn’t it. It was a dull affair and I’ve come to realise that virtually every Chennaiyin FC game is a dull affair. Don’t get me wrong, the Super Machans are a great footballing side but They. Just. Don’t. Entertain. Continue reading
