Pochettino is still the right man for Tottenham

I remember a time when if you mentioned to anyone that you support Tottneham Hotspur you would most likely have been greeted with a reply of eye rolling, on some occasions greeted with laughter and a sheer confused look on people’s faces as if to say “Why?”. However, after five and a half seasons with […]

There are many issues happening at Newcastle that unfortunately continue to worsen week in, week out. It was a massive error of judgement not providing Benetiz a new contract after all the work he has put into the club. I agree that the football wasn’t always the best, but at least he brought some pride back to the club. Steve Bruce unfortunately isn’t to solve all the problems. This reminds me when Newcastle appointed Steve McClaren where he didn’t win his first eight matches and he was let go a few weeks later. I feel that history is going to repeat itself very soon.

Crisis time for Newcastle

I agree with their “Western” branding too. I also think if the club take the AFL approach where some teams play in Canberra and Hawthorn who play some of their matches in Tasmania, the brand will hopefully grow and gather a steady following. The fact that WUFC should have their own football purpose stadium within a few years should also be a major draw card for potential followers.

Mark Rudan and Western United will surprise many this season

All good points! Only time will tell how everything plays out.

As I mentioned above, even though I am a passionate Man United follower, I do have a soft spot for Leeds United. Watching them week in week out last season, there was a sense of excitement every time they made their way onto the pitch. Looking forward to watching their progress this season!

Why Leeds United will return to the promise land of the EPL with the help of Marcelo Bielsa

I agree that Leeds have very loyal supporters and this is clearly evident over the last few years. AN ex-colleague of mine is a big LUFC fan and has followed them through the good times and the bad. Even though I am a Manchester United fan, I admire the history and the loyalty of the fans! I would be wonderful to see them playing with the likes of Liverpool, Man City, etc again next season.

I think that WSW will have a better season this time round. Babbel has the ability to put his own mark on this time round. With WSW Centre of Football and the new BankWest stadium now available, we should see a WSW side that represents the early days. The signings look good but again everything comes down to results.
