    Gary Neville and the standards of football punditry

    It requires considerable experience of watching British football coverage to understand why Gary Neville is such a celebrated pundit, for he has become universally popular for merely filling his job description.

    EURO 2012 Betting Thread

    Thought it might be an idea to create a thread for this, seeing as the other one is sort of dead, and it'd be nice to have a dedicated thread for it. Anyone put a few cheeky bets down on EURO 2012?

    The fallen genius of Adriano

    It is Sunday the 17th of October, eight minutes in to the Internazionale – Udinese game. Christian Vieri was fouled over 30 yards out by an Udinese player.

    The rise of the 'nine and a half'

    Wayne Rooney is on a hot streak. His goal against Chelsea brought his domestic tally for this season to 10 goals in 6 starts. Relishing his deeper-lying role in United’s fluid 4-4-2/4-2-3-1 cross, he is both creator in chief and predatory goalscorer for his high-flying side. It wasn’t always...

    The Mayor of Vilnius is a badass

    Arturas Zuokas is not a man to be messed with. Fed up with the rising amounts of illegally-parked cars in the Lithuanian capital Vilnius of which he is Mayor, he and his council imposed a 'zero tolerance' approach to dealing with the offenders. This isn't your British style 'Oh you've done wrong...

    The Aston Villa Thread

    Because everyone else has a thread and dammit, I don't care if I'm the only Villa fan on this board. If other clubs have one than we're having one too. Things to like about Villa: We're a non-threatening top 6 contender (maybe) We have lots of Birmingham-bred players... ...and thus post-match...
