How about a Women’s Tour de France?

In cycling (and sport in general), men are in the spotlight. What about women? Why is there no women’s Tour de France (TDF)? There was one, you just didn’t hear about it. read more



2012: The Downfall of Barcelona?

They play the perfect game, they provide the ideal model of team football that other teams strive to achieve, they entertain the crowds like no other team, but has 2012 seen the demise of Barcelona’s dominance in European football?

Freedman to Bolton: The right move?

Following Bolton’s sacking of the amiable Owen Coyle, they scoured the best the Championship had to offer for bright managerial talent, and made an approach for Crystal Palace legend Dougie Freedman. It was an approach which I thought would end in disappointment for the Trotters. read more



Advantage: British women’s tennis. Or are there still too many faults?

Whether you’re that casual tennis supporter that only gets hyped up when the sun is out (if you’re lucky), or when strawberries and smell of freshly cut grass overtakes your senses as Wimbledon comes around again, or whether you’re glued to the ATP rankings 24/7 – you can’t ignore the seemingly lacklustre performance of British female tennis players in the last decade or so. Until now. read more
