Monday, 7th April 2014
by Raedwulf

by Preview Percy
''When Preview Percy saw the item on the first gay marriages on the news the other night we were surprised to find that the reactionary old buffer was in favour. "Good" he explained.

Saturday, 29th March 2014
by Carys Baker

This may not seem much but he is apparently the thirteenth highest paid manager in the world...''

Sleepwalking to disaster

Stoke City v West Ham United
Friday, 14th March 2014
by Preview Percy
''Many people who have a week off come back refreshed and with renewed enthusiasm for their lot. Preview Percy isn't one of them, though he did perk up a bit on hearing that the site's editor has 'flu. Here's his look at this weekend's trip to Staffordshire. Or alternatively you could go and have root canal surgery, which would probably be less painful......''


Everton v West Ham United
Friday, 28th February 2014
by Preview Percy
''We managed to stop Preview Percy from laughing at the reaction of Southampton supporters to last weekend's result for long enough to get him to write this week's preview. We shouldn't have bothered really..... ..''

by Raedwulf

Just one transferro, give eet to me...
Monday, 24th February 2014
by Raedwulf
''Mauricio Pochettino has to be the man for the job. If I can have just one transfer in the coming close season, whatever it costs, bring in Pochettino.

by David Hautzig
