Rafa Bye-nitez!

Following the 2-2 draw with Gary Neville’s Valencia a result that prompted Rafael Benitez’s dismissal from Real Madrid, speculation has already turned to where the enigmatic Spaniard will manage next. With a family that still resides in Merseyside, a dislike of sabbaticals and his previous two projects abroad it seems probable that the Premier League will be Benitez’s next destination. ...

Red Bull Seeks Rule Change

Red Bull team principle, Christian Horner, has suggested that new rules need to be introduced to Formula 1 in order to maintain fan interest and halt the imperious Mercedes. “The regulations are incredibly stable for next year, so Mercedes will inevitably carry on the dominance…People get turned off with predictability“ Horner makes an important point, 2015 was a new low point in viewing ...

Van Gaal Stays… For now

Manchester United's recent form can be roughly surmised by the following statement written by the BBC's chief football writer.
"Manchester United's improved performance in the goalless draw with Chelsea gave embattled manager Louis Van Gaal breathing space."  
When an improved performance leads to a 0-0 draw, it becomes clear just how poor they have been this season. Or to view it even more unfavourably, United seemed pleased with a result in which they did not score against a team three points above the relegation zone.

The Red devils are yet to win in 8 games in all competitions which is their worse run since 1990. Therefore any suggestion that Van Gaal might have saved his position based on Monday nights result is ludicrous.

Unfortunately in modern football, most owners are quick to dispense with their managers services at the slightest hint of mid-season turbulence. But to United's credit they have not rushed to do so. Possibly keen to avoid long term instability caused by changing the management and back room staff with reckless aband

Joshua completes demolition job

Anthony Joshua settled one of the biggest scores in British Boxing by stopping Dillian Whyte in the seventh round in an explosive and surprisingly competitive show down. The war that occurred between the ropes at London’s 02 arena more than lived up to its tag line of “Bad Intentions.” The match started in the usual Joshua fashion, a heavy freight train running through everything ...
