I deal in statistics - but the prostate cancer ones are totally shocking. One man dies every hour from this disease. That's six during Soccer Saturday every week. Yes, my feet are killing me. But who cares if it will save even one man's life?

The New Season Brings Excitement, but Not for the Premier League

At this stage, anything could happen this season. Bournemouth could storm to the title with 110 points. Chelsea, Manchester United and Arsenal could all get relegated. Brendan Rogers could be revealed as a terrifying space lizard from Mars. They are all possibilities. They are all improbable, however (although I'm still not sure about Rogers).

Relegation Play-Offs Would be a Shot In the Arm for English Football

Matthew Smith | Posted 18.03.2015 | UK Sport

Relegation can be the death knell for the careers of players, managers, sometimes for the future of entire clubs. To see this played out in play-off form - knock-out, no second chances, do or die - would be theatrical football of the grandest scale.

Quarter-Season Predictions: The Championship

Matthew Smith | Posted 06.12.2014 | UK Sport
Matthew Smith

Who will be celebrating promotion? Usually the relegated sides are the safe option, and had I written this in August, I would most likely have predicted that Wigan, Fulham and Norwich would all be challenging for the top six, all in the top ten, and at least one returning to the promised land of grotesque amounts of TV money...

Not Every 'Scandal' Should Lead to Resignation

This is undoubtedly a headache to the Premier League, for club owners, and those who sit around the table once a fortnight. But they should think about what they are risking if they let Scudamore go. He has performed miracles at the Premier League, while continuing to support the rest of the game. To lose him from football would be a real scandal.

Just Who Is Massimo Cellino?

It has been 10 years since Leeds competed in the Premier League. Desperate to return to a league they had become so accustom too, the hope remains that Cellino can orchestrate a return to the top flight, and with it restore Leeds United back to the place they feel they belong.

MK Dons: Should I Be Over This Now?

Come 5 o'clock and Final Score on a Saturday I know where my sympathies lie and if MKD have lost, it feels like another small triumph, another dig in their ribs has been applied from all those 'real' fans who wish they weren't there. Childish maybe, but so is much of life as a football fan.

Coping With Pre-Season Blues

It's that time of year again. 'Premier League Years' is being aired on Sky Sports, confused men in fading replica shirts are being dragged around shopping centres on Saturday afternoons and the only people gracing the pitches of our major football stadia are ageing rock stars. Welcome to the no man's land that is pre-season.

With disasters such as Hillsborough still fresh in the memory, although not because of the safe standing debate, trialling safe standing sections appears to be something that authorities in the UK will be reluctant to approve.

Many have an allegiance due to family or school connections (like I do), where stopping going simply isn't a viable option. This makes the current situation even sadder though, as fans are being held to ransom by clubs (and ultimately a system) caught up in a downward spiral of debt and short-term goals.
