Upgrade complete .. Crouch to Adebayor!

Crouch v Adebayor .. An upgrade making a difference Although ‘only’ 30, I am old to enough to remember when we didn't all walk around with mobile phones that were not smart, and small, and able to do just about anything. I remember distinctly my 18th birthday .. I went out and got the latest mobile phone. It had no colour and a single line as the ‘screen’. It worked, it was functional. Now, I upgrade every 18-24 months and you …

Welcome back... Jermain Defoe | Stats

Welcome back … Jermain Defoe He may have looked like an extra from a Sisko music video with his new haircut but there is no doubt Jermain Defoe has defences dancing to his beat this season. The diminutive striker, 30 this year, has often been seen as one of the country’s most natural goalscorers.

Which one? Denilson Or Scott Parker?

Which one? Denilson Or Scott Parker?

Last year the wise people at the Football Writers' Association picked West Ham midfielder Scott Parker as their player of the year. It was a decision I found bemusing but since then, after his transfer to Tottenham, I have been relatively impressed with the Englishman's performances.
