“Three’s Kompany” – Captain inspires City to Carabao Cup final victory

Vincent Kompany, Sergio Aguero and David Silva, Manchester City's three elder statesmen, their three wise men. The three current longest serving players at the club.

Maidenhead United v FC Halifax Town match report – Vanarama National League

It is often said that it is lower down the footballing pyramid where the spectator can experience football in its truest and simplest form, unadulterated by egos and gross commercialism.

Magnificent Malan – The Ashes

There are 100's in Test Match cricket and there are 100's. No two are ever the same.

Careless Wasps Leave it Late – Match Report: London Irish 13 vs. 17 Wasps

After 57 minutes at the Madejski Stadium on this dry and crisp autumn afternoon, Wasps had yet to score a point. Indeed they were 10-0 down against the league’s bottom team, London Irish, having conceded an interception try, which was gratefully accepted by the Irish’s Alex Lewington, just five minutes earlier and were looking ragged.

Watching the Ashes – the spectator’s view

The greatest cricketing show on earth? Probably. If not, it is arguably the one that is eagerly awaited more than any other around the cricketing globe. Yet for the spectator back in ol' Blighty, it can be very hard viewing, in fact, it can be positively gruelling. So much for the players, all mollycoddled in [...]

Superior England See Off Spirited Samoa

Big boys, big hits, big hugs. This was a big match for Samoa and a special occasion as the engaging South Sea Islanders were given the rare chance to come to Twickenham and parade their skills.
