The medieval Bargate in Southampton – how to the clever cloggs? (Picture: Getty) A survey may have finally put an end to the question of which side of the UK is smarter, north or south? The North-South divide debate might be over now a quiz by Jurys Inn has revealed the north as being the smartest. Really important questions about locations of famous landmarks, geography and general knowledge were used to work out the top 10 brainiest cities, apparently. And most of them are north of the Watford Gap. However, the number one spot is undoubtedly southern, which surely must […] Read more →
Yes Steve! (Picture: Getty Images) Newcastle United have announced that Steve McClaren has become their new manager today following the sacking interim boss John Carver. The former England manager was most recently employed by Derby County after spells with Dutch side FC Twente, Nottingham Forest and Wolfsburg all came to an end. McClaren’s appointment is likely to split fans opinion with some believing Newcastle Mike Ashley has taken the cheap, safe option while others will see him as the man to steady the ship that has been rocking after riding the rough seas of a relegation battle. But what exactly can Newcastle fans […] Read more →
Danny Welbeck has hit the ground running at Arsenal (Picture: Getty Images) Wayne Rooney has admitted his former team-mate Danny Welbeck made the right decision leaving Manchester United for Arsenal this summer. Welbeck has impressed since completing a £16million deadline-day move to The Gunners in September, with the striker scoring five goals for the north London outfit in all competitions so far and a further five for England. With Welbeck set to take on his former side when Arsenal host The Red Devils on Saturday, Rooney has revealed his belief that the 23-year-old forward chose the right club to continue his career at.

West Brom’s Saido Berahino got an England call up (Picture: Getty Images) The emergence of Saido Berahino at the beginning of last season was one of the few positives of a deeply disappointing campaign. Despite having a much improved system, it has been many years since a youth product made a mark on the first team, let alone at an international level. While the reasons behind the failure of the academy to do this require a far more wide-ranging blog on the all too easy way that promising players are poached, it is heartening to everyone at the club to […] Read more →
Former shadow Attorney General Emily Thornberry has quit her position following furore caused by her tweet (Picture: PA Wire/Press Association Images) Emily Thornberry has sensationally quit her role as Shadow Attorney General last night following wide vilification of a tweet, which allegedly demonstrated ‘contempt of the working class.’ The image she tweeted, of a white van in front of a house sporting three England flags, was captioned simply ‘Image from #Rochester.’ Does it show that she’s hopelessly out of touch with the electorate, that she thinks a white van and some England flags are a rare sight? Yes. Does it show that […] Read more →
Leicester City goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel (Picture: Getty Images) After a Championship-winning season that saw Leicester manager Nigel Pearson settle on his formation and starting 11, our first season back in the top flight has seen him change both his formation and starting line-up almost on a weekly basis. From consistency to constantly inconsistent you might say. With this in mind leicestertillidie asked it followers to choose their favorite formation and then select the players to fit it. Unsurprisingly after last season’s success over two-thirds of them chose the 4-4-2 formation that served us so well last season. A case perhaps […] Read more →
