Swansea | Taking steps forward ?

Swansea City undoubtedly have a lot to thank Roberto Martinez for, a play maker in the bottom tier who brought culture to a poor side, an inspirational captain through the clubs most turbulent times, and a manager who established a style of play which delighted fans and caught the attention of the national media.

Newcastle: The "not so" smooth transition from football club to business

The fact that football clubs across the UK are now being ran more and more as businesses is not entirely popular with football fans.

Who other than Adel? QPR's Dilemma

[caption id="attachment_999" align="alignright" width="220" caption="Adel Taarabt - Star Player"][/caption] It seemed for almost the entire summer and for weeks before that as Queens Park Rangers surged towards the Championship and more importantly the Premier League that Adel Taarabt would not be there to guide them into the unknown. The often fantastic but infuriating midfielder at times appeared to on his own destroy opponents with skills beyond the division he played in. However with the news of Taarabt’s departure seemingly put …
