  1. EURO 2012 Preview England vs Sweden

    Group D in Euro 2012

    Both teams go into their second game of Euro 2012 needing a win after dropping points in their opening matches and the pressure is on to deliver the win that will be vital in progressing from what is shaping up to be a very tight group. With both teams coming off different results, the Swedes unexpected loss to Ukraine whilst England got a largely unexpected point from a hugely disciplined performance against France, it is difficult to predict how they will differ in preparations to a game that could, in the case of Sweden especially, see them eliminated.

  2. Match Report: France 1 – 1 England


    June 13, 2012 by Adam Gray

    England did enough to stifle a gifted French team to ensure a stalemate in the opening match of Group D, with a point a fair reflection for a match that was tightly contested and saw impasse for long periods. Joleon Lescott headed England in front on the half-hour mark only to see Samir Nasri slip the ball through a ruck of bodies in the English box 9 minutes later. Both teams seemed happier to draw the game as the second half wore on and both camps will be happy with a point.

  3. Premier League Newcomers Team Of The Season 2011/12


    May 12, 2012 by David Bolt

    Sadly, the end of the Premier League season is now upon us, and writers everywhere are picking their teams of the season, so I thought I’ll do the same.

    The problem I have with many of these teams is that they often pick themselves, and as a result don’t vary much from writer to writer. That’s not very interesting to me; I’m sure none of you reading need me to tell you how good a season Robin van Persie’s had, or how Vincent Kompany has been a rock at the back for Manchester City, or how David Silva can pick a pass better than anyone else in the league.
