It’s not very often that football throws up a moral dilemma but, following Crystal Palace’s ‘goal’ that never was, there’s been one up for discussion this week.
If your opposition score a goal that everyone sees apart from the match officials, should you do the right thing or just get on with the game?
Amusing football story of the day: Premier League new boys Burnley told to upgrade changing rooms as they are not big enough to cope with a football team’s needs.
With almost every preview of Manchester United’s visit to Turf Moor focussing on the conditions that will await Sir Alex Ferguson’s men rather than the game itself, you’d be forgiven for thinking that the champions of England were turning out on Hackney Marshes.
The sad news that Sir Bobby Robson lost his battle with cancer on Friday has left a huge hole in the football community.
Robson summed up everything that is good about football and every one of us involved in the game can learn something from a man that will be sadly missed.
Half of Britain’s footballers are putting up with sub-standard facilities, a Club Website poll can reveal.
28 percent of readers described the facilities – changing rooms, showers etc – used before and after their football matches each week as ‘terrible’, whilst 22 percent said theirs were ‘poor’.
That’s 50 percent in total. One in two people? Simply not good enough.
Let’s be honest… we all love a bit of controversy in football, don’t we?
Whether it’s a dodgy off-side decision, a disputed card or a contentious goal, there’s nothing better than a bit of debate with your mates after the game.
