Vitesse Commemorate the Battle of Arnhem with British 1st Airbourne Division Colours

September 19, 2013 by Sean Charles

Vitesse Arnhem will commemorate the Battle of Arnhem this weekend by wearing a strip consisting of the regiment’s famous colours. 

The British 1st Airbourne Division were heavily involved in the attempted liberation of Arnhem in September 1944 from Nazi occupation.  The division lost three quarters of its strength (8000 men) behind enemy lines during the failed mission before the remaining survivors eventually withdrew after nine days of fighting.

Greg Dyke’s 2022 target is far from realistic

September 12, 2013 by David Bolt


New FA Chairman Greg Dyke said last week that his aim is for England to make the semi-finals of EURO 2020 and win the 2022 World Cup.

Dyke described English football as “a tanker that needs turning” in a statement outlining the goals he hopes to achieve under his leadership.

On the face of it, it’s hard to envisage the FA being able to affect the changes English football needs. The FA as an organisation is pretty inept. A couple of years ago the Minister for Sport Hugh Robertson described English football as the ‘worst governed sport in the country’. Earlier this year, the FA effectively admitted they have lost control over most of English football and can’t make many of the changes the government asked them to.
