So, will The FA Cup ever get its Prestige back or is the demise set to continue? Personally I would love to see the Clubs and players get some passion back for it with the help of some chart toppers to join them, Chelsea - I'm totally available for the Cheesy music Video FYI!

Bye Bye Benitez

I've had a bit of a love hate relationship with Newcastle United fans, I love their passion for their club and you have to have the up most respect for them for that, but you get one little transfer deal fall through like 'Bas Dost' not signing on Tuesday ;) and you would think I personally relegated them from the amount of abuse I got off a majority of them on Twitter!

Elbow Merchant Fellaini Should Not Have a Palace Date at Wembley

Rob Atkinson | Posted 06.05.2016 | UK Sport
Rob Atkinson

Louis van Gaal, the current manager of Manchester United, is a confusing figure. Frequently disarming and able to display a self-deprecating humour, he's occasionally also abrasive and blinkered. Sometimes, he's just downright weird, a facet of his personality that came to the fore after the most recent act of thuggery from one of his least admirable players, a certain Monsieur Fellaini.

Spurs as Champions? The Very Idea Lacks That Ring of Authenticity

Leicester City, Champions of England. It has a ring of authenticity to it that's been hard fought for and deeply merited. Whereas "Champions Spurs" - well, it just doesn't sound right. It sounds instead like cheap fiction; and, as long as the club and the fans retain their current losers' mindset, that's just how it will remain.

The beautiful game needs to take a long, hard look at itself and reassess the way that it treats and responds to match officials. Everyone involved in the game, including professionals, need to teach the youth of today that are learning the game to respect those officiating.

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?

Tottenham Hotspur: Dare to Dream?

Scott Thompson | Posted 23.02.2016 | UK Sport
Scott Thompson

With all of this conducted by Mauricio Pochettino's rising star it's easy to dream of the title, to get swept away with the all the plaudits and wild predictions about how far this team can go - 'And they're only young' is often uttered at the end of such discussions. But the little bit of pessimism that still lurks in the back of my mind is only concerned about finishing in the top four...

Soccer Scaremongering: The New Political Football

Jonathan Arnott

They were bound to have a go, sooner or later. The campaign to stay in the European Union has resorted to fear and scaremongering on almost everything else, and in my experience there are a lot of staunchly anti-EU football fans, so a 'Brexit would hurt football' follows as surely as the playoffs follow the regular season.

Jurgen Klopp and Gegenpress

Gegenpress. Like a pop star turning up to a school disco, it took the Premier League by storm. No longer had the beautiful, eloquent idea of tiki-taka graced the world of football, than had it been swept aside by its violent, aggressive cousin.

Platini Is Unlikely to Be Willing or Able to Substantially Reform Fifa

Ragnar Weilandt

If Platini is football's only hope, then there is not that much hope at all. Having been a member of Fifa's Executive Committee since 2002, Platini is far too closely associated with the organisation's past to shape its future.

Now, you might think that the protection of my teeth would be a good reason to stop drinking drinks like Coke, but since the state of my teeth mean they're probably a lost cause anyway, let me tell you why football is the actual reason...

The scandal enveloping FIFA should have come of no great surprise...Football fans and pundits have long known about slush funds and payola. But it was tolerated, a reason why Sepp Blatter has been elected its head five successive times.
