  1. Nations League approved by UEFA


    April 8, 2014 by David Bolt

    One of the questions European football has been looking to answer in the past few years is what to do to improve International friendlies. A lot of international friendlies are not competitive enough to be of benefit of teams, as well as being pretty boring to watch for paying fans and TV audiences. Most are setup more as a money-spinning exercise for a national association than as a meaningful way to improve a national team.

    Last week, UEFA outlined a plan to revamp and hopefully improve international football in Europe, by announcing the creation of the Nations League which will begin in 2018 and be played on most of the international dates currently occupied by friendlies.

    It was not so long ago that Leeds United were one of the most exciting teams in English football. Leeds were a team with a seemingly perfect mix of exciting products of the Leeds academy and players signed from other British clubs for what were, at the time at least, sizable fees. They seemed to be poised to be in a position to be challenging for the Premier League title in years to come. In 2001, they even reached the semi-finals of the Champions League.

  6. Non-league player attacks fan


    January 27, 2014 by David Bolt


    On January 25th 1995, after being sent off whilst playing for Manchester United against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park, Eric Cantona responded to the taunts of a Palace fan named Matthew Simmonds by launching a double footed kick at him and followed that up with a series of punches. Cantona was convicted of assault and was ordered to do community service, as well as being banned for eight months by the FA.

    Thankfully, incidences of players attacking fans in England are rare.

    However, on January 25th 2014, one non-league captain decided to celebrate the 19th anniversary of Cantona’s offence by attacking a visiting fan.
