Ferguson Wrong About Transfer Window

Digsy disagrees with the Premiership’s most successful manager ever. Fergie has claimed the January transfer windowisn’t all that, and doesn’t see it having a major affect on the course of the season. He’s not arguing against the idea of a transfer window in general, just the idea that what you do in January can decide […]

Chelsea Slackers To Slack Off Even More

Digsy doesn’t like to see SWP and Wayne Bridge rotting away at Chelsea, but thinks they’ve only got themselves to blame. Is Jose Mourinho a hypnotist or something? How else to explain Wayne Bridge and Shaun Wright-Phillips being perfectly happy to waste the best years of their career in Chelsea’s (surprisingly poor) Reserves? Little Shaun […]

Manchester United vs Chelsea Not Yet A Proper Rivalry?

Digsy thinks Man Utd vs Chelsea has some way to go. No doubt Manchester United vs Chelsea is a big game. It’s this seasons realistic title contenders going head to head. But does this game count as a bona fide rivalry yet? Is it even as heated as Liverpool vs Chelsea? Arsenal vs Chelsea? I […]

Everything Depends On Tevez and Mascherano

Digsy might be placing just a bit too much importance on whether Tevescherano stay at West Ham or not. But there’s a point in there…somewhere… Kia Joorabchian’s failure to buy West Ham has put Carlos Tevez and Javier Mascherano’s Upton Park future in doubt. His company basically owns the two world class Argentines/second class Hammers, […]

Strachan Takes A Swipe At The Premiership

Digsy and Gordon don’t see eye to eye over the SPL, and not just because Digsy is above five feet tall. Wee Gordon Strachan had some harsh words for the Premiership before tonight’s big Celtic vs Manchester United Champions League qualifier. Harsh, unrealistic words. “Believe me, I’ve seen some dire games in England. You keep […]

Best Ever Foreign Premiership XI?

Digsy’s got a bone to pick with Brazil and Beeky Talksport presenters Brazil and Beeky argued for four hours before coming up with their Best Ever Foreign Premiership XI. They eventually agreed(ish) on this: GK – Peter Schmeichel (Manchester United, Aston Villa, Manchester City RB – Dan Petrescu (Sheffield Wednesday, Chelsea) DF – Marcel Desailly […]

In Defence Of Graham Poll And The Premiership Ref

Digsy has no sympathy for James McFadden and his potty mouth. Did Everton’s James McFadden say Graham Poll was an “effing cheat” against Arsenal or that his decision was “effing shite”? And did he say effing or fucking? Probably the latter. Maybe calling Poll “shite” isn’t as bad as calling him a “cheat” (it’s definitely […]

Wenger Happily Operates At A Loss

Digsy wonders if Wenger’s calculator was broken over the summer. So Jose Antonio Reyes isn’t keen on England because “everything’s shut at 5pm”? I appreciate how it must have been tough for Reyes to go Ferrari shopping, what with his busy 9-5 schedule, but the Spaniard’s reluctance to return “home” to Arsenal likely means the […]

Referees Need To Be Accountable

Digsy’s in agreement with Ian Wright-Wright-Wright and *shock* Mourinho. On MOTD2 Sunday night Ian Wright very passionately argued in favour of Premiership referees being forced to explain their decisions after a game. I often disagree with the Arsenal (and don’t forget Crystal Palace) legend (not to mention West Ham, Notts Forest, Celtic and Burnley journeyman). […]

Wenger Eyesight To Blame For Pardew Bust Up?

Digsy has an explanation for the Wenger and Pardew handbags incident. When Alan Pardew (over) celebrated Marlon Harewoods 89th minute winner for West Ham against Arsenal, Arsene Wenger appeared to lose his rag in a “Best Of” Premiership moment. Who knew Arsene Wenger was capable of acting like that? The Arsenal boss is calm, collected, […]

Too Many Foreigners Can Be A Good Thing

Digsy can’t go back to watching kick and rush top flight football. Sepp Blatter, FIFA and FIFPro want to bomb English football and the Premiership back to the dark ages with a proposal to limit foreign players in all domestic leagues. The idea is for a strict six plus five, meaning six domestic and five […]

Jose Should Think Just A Bit More Before He Speaks

Digsy finds that Mourinho’s mind games aren’t quite as fun as they used to be. Is anyone else sick of Jose Mourinhos’ rent-a-quote approach to big-match build up? The Chelsea chief’s “I am a Special One” confidence was a breath of fresh air when he first arrived in the Premiership, sent by the footballing Gods […]

Window Just Delays The Inevitable

If Digsy doesn’t get to have a sack window, he doesn’t see why anyone else should. Stuart Pearce probably thinks he’s doing Premiership managers a favour with his sack window proposal, but he’s wrong. The Manchester City boss’s idea was intended to stop all the rumours about struggling managers getting their marching orders. “This week […]
