All four Premiership games were either postponded or abandoned due to the conditions, despite three of them being played on Artificial Turf. This coming weekend sees first host third, second hosts

Rich’s Round Up – Week 11

This time next week, the global game will have new World Champions. Will it by the French, the Belgians, the Croats or the English that are celebrating at 5am next monday morning?  is football really coming home, or are the English fans going to be left dissapointed once again? I'm
