The Desert Foxes (on our boxes)
I’m sitting here, it’s half time between Algeria and Egypt during the Cup of African Nations semi-final. Our esteemed editor wrote recently about Black stars and elephants and why it could be African football’s year. There are a few other reasons why I’ve got so into the CAF as I affectionately call it. The kits, […]
Fantasy can’t beat the Reality Star.
As Christmas for many meant hangovers, left-over turkey and the obligatory tweaking of fantasy football (ff) teams, over-indulgence must now resonate. Early 2010, a time synonymous with resolutions, however, has so far been hijacked by the worst winter snap in decades. Whilst weather ransacked all but the Britannia, an extended holiday for some must’ve been […]
(Apologies to N.Sedaka/H.Greenfield) I love, I love, I love my calendar game Yeah, sweet calendar game I love, I love, I love my calendar game Each and every day of the year (January) You start the year off fine The year started well with a continuing good run in the league and a couple of […]
Beware of The Black Stars & The Elephants…
With the 2010 World Cup draw just made, I thought there was no better time for some bold predictions. It was Pelé who once said – in that conceited manner of his – that an African nation would win the World Cup before Y2K. Then again he once infamously predicted Columbia would win USA ’94, […]

Premiership Bets of the Weekend
Wolves v Arsenal Arsenal look like the best side in Europe when on their game, which at home, they have been all season. However they have been sloppy on the road this season, guilty of overplaying and taking their foot of the pedal. The recent games at AZ Alkmarr and West Ham were seemingly won, with the […]
Read All About It
I was lost for ideas. I hadn’t written for efp for over a month, other things had got in the way, and as well as that, football had been rather underwhelming for me. Everton have improved in that time, Louis Saha has become one of the greatest players in the world (a private joke, sorry), […]
The Future’s bright, it’s black and white.
It has come to light that there’s a new found confidence at Vale Park this season. Ok, a 1-0 loss at home to Bury on Saturday – that being the 1st home loss and only the 2nd loss of the season – is a massive improvement on last season already. With the appointment of Micky […]
Freewriting, Bonny Scotland, Greece is the word.
This is another attempt at freewriting, and for the next ten minutes I will just be typing non-stop whilst listening to the Sky Sports Soccer Saturday post-match post-mortems. It’s a really hard thing to explain, you just write whatever comes in to your head regardless of the subject, within a time limit, and normally you […]
