  1. Capital offences

    by , 9th April 2013 at 05:56 AM
    Southend goalkeeper Paul Smith did no favours for himself or his club with his faux pas at Wembley on Sunday prior to the JPT Final..

    As the two teams jogged out of the tunnel the custodian spotted a cameraman, just doing his job, filming the teams coming out.

    Mr Smith took it upon himself to issue a `one finger` salute in the direction of the lens. Whether or not it was to the cameraman, probably, or to a wider audience, only Mr Smith will know.

    Never the less it was tasteless and I`m sure when gesture is brought to the attention of Mr Brown, manager, Mr Smith, goalkeeper will feel like he should, ashamed.

    When Bobby Zamora needlessly and foolishly tried his Eric Cantona, though to be fair to Eric his infamous kung-fu assault was ...
  2. USA awarded walk-over, top World Cup qualifying group

    by , 1st April 2013 at 09:37 AM (11v11 blog)
    In an unexpected escalation of tensions, FIFA today responded to Costa Rican plans to play the return leg of the USA-Costa Rica World Cup qualifier in La Guayaba de Talamanca, by awarding a 3-0 walkover to the USA.

    Costa Rica had petitioned FIFA to schedule a rematch of the first game, citing player safety concerns and inhospitable conditions. The U.S. beat Costa Rica 1-0 in the blizzard at Colorado’s Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in near whiteout conditions with half a foot of snow on the field.


    Costa Rica’s protest on the ground of players’ safety, the fact the grounds crew were allowed on the field during play, that the lines were not visible, and that the ball was unable to freely travel over a layer of snow was refused. ...

  3. Man Utd Reds link up with CCB and Wahaha

    by , 16th January 2013 at 10:09 AM (11v11 blog)
    Manchester United has today (15 January) agreed three-year sponsorship deals with China Construction Bank (CCB) and soft drinks manufacturer Wahaha.

    As part of the deal with CCB, the Chinese bank will hold the exclusive rights to produce the official Manchester United branded credit card in mainland China. CCB will market the card to its almost 102 million personal banking customers in mainland China offering a range of United based incentives.

    United’s commercial director Richard Arnold said: "Through our relationship with CCB we hope not only to give fans an excellent product, but also bring them closer to the club they so passionately support.

    “As China’s fiscal and industrial strength continues to grow, it is establishing itself ...
  4. 2010 World Cup warm up games fixed

    by , 18th December 2012 at 01:24 PM (11v11 blog)
    Wilson Raj Perumal is regarded by investigators as a member of a major fixing network possibly funded from Hong Kong and China. The fall-out from his activities led on Sunday to the South African Football Association (SAFA) asking its President and four other officials to take voluntary leave of absence prior to answering questions raised by possible interactions with Perumal’s company, Football 4U International.

    Perumal, a Singaporean citizen, was arrested after entering Finland on a fake passport in February 2011. He was convicted on July 19 2011 and sentenced to 2 years. The case in which he was convicted involved players from Rovaniemen Palloseura (RoPS) who Perumal bribed into manipulating 24 games, achieving the intended score in 11 of them.

  6. Chelsea sack Di Matteo - utterly ridiculous!

    by , 21st November 2012 at 01:58 PM (11v11 blog)
    The only sensible reaction to Chelsea’s sacking of Roberto Di Matteo today is - utterly ridiculous.

    Why?

    Because he guided the Blues to Champions League triumph just six months ago and winning Europe’s premier club competition had been the Holy Grail for Roman Abramovich since the Russian billionaire took over as Chelsea owner in 2003.

    Because in less than ten months in charge, he also led Chelsea to only their seventh ever FA Cup Final success.

    Utterly ridiculous, because Di Matteo was in charge for just 23 Premier League games for Chelsea. Only David Webb and Guus Hiddink managed fewer (13 each).

    Because under Abramovich, even before today’s dismissal, Chelsea have shelled out £37 million in compensation to sacked managers ...

  8. 11v11 input opportunity

    by , 20th August 2012 at 07:41 AM
    With the new season up and running, we'd be delighted to hear from anyone who may be interested in helping us with the rewarding task of inputting match data on to the AFS database during the 2012-13 season.

    We consider this to be an excellent opportunity for anyone wishing to explore a career in sports media or statistics or those who wish to increase their involvement in football or AFS.

    A commitment of probably two or three hours most Saturday evenings / Sunday mornings is required along with a keen eye for detail.

    Previous inputting experience would be an advantage but not essential as full training notes will be provided.

    All training and work can be done from home.

    At the moment, we must advise that this ...
