Ashley Young inspires an Aussie generation!

It looks like the process of ‘Doing an Ashley’ has gone global, proving that blatant diving is not just exclusive to the Barclay’s Premier League.

Even in a country such as Australia, where the sportsmen are notoriously hard as nails, do cheats sometimes prosper.

Picture the scene…

We’re in the dying embers of the 2011/12 A-League Grand Final with the game tied and just seconds from going into extra-time.

The 4 added minutes have already been played when Brisbane Roar’s Besart Berisha takes an airshot, falls on his arse, appeals and incredibly gets given a penalty. Of course he then had the cheek to go on and celebrate before the penalty had already been converted. [Read full article »]

Piers Morgan’s New Desktop Wallpaper

Ever wondered where Arsenal ‘stars’ Jack Wilshere, Emmanuel Frimpong and Carl Jenkinson have been all season? Well cuddling in the hot tub seems to be the obvious answer judging by this picture.

Whilst the teammates seem to be comfortable with their sexuality, it beggars the question “Why have the threesome spent so much time on the treatment table?”. We’ll let you be the judge of that.

Frimpong posted the photo online earlier this week, tweeting,

“Dench Party at my house who’s coming.”

And we have had it (un)confirmed from a (un)reliable source that this picture has made it as Piers Morgan’s new desktop wallpaper, replacing ‘that‘ shot of Freddie ‘Lunchbox’ Ljungberg.

Andre Marriner to referee Manchester derby

it has just been confirmed that Andre Marriner has been appointed to referee the Barclays Premier League derby between Manchester city and Manchester United at the Etihad Stadium on Monday, 30 April.

Rumours were circulating earlier in the day that Howard Webb would be taking charge of the crucial clash, but we can confirm that this is not the case.

Drogba 14/1 to be booked for diving at Nou Camp

Despite Chelsea taking a one-goal lead to the Nou Camp, the hosts come into the tie as red-hot favourites to reach yet another Champions League Final. Bookmakers Paddy Power make Barcelona 2/7 to win and just 4/9 to qualify.

Chelsea were 9/2 to make the final before the tie got underway and are now just 15/8 (Sporting Bet) to progress after keeping the champions out at Stamford Bridge. That said this is the fifth time the two sides have met in the knockout stages of the competition and the Blues have gone through on just one occasion to date.

Roberto Di Matteo’s men come into the return leg knowing that a draw will be enough to see them through whilst they are 4/6 (Paddy Power) to score what could be a crucial away goal at the Nou Camp. [Read full article »]

Mourinho 17/4 to claim first win over Catalan rivals

Real Madrid will still be top of La Liga come Sunday morning, but the question on everybody’s lips is by how much.

They start the weekend four points above fierce rivals Barcelona, but with Saturday’s final El Clasico of the season edging ever closer, the could could easily be down to just a single point.

Whilst they have scored goals and won games for fun since Mourinho arrived at the Bernabéu, one problem still remains – they simply can’t beat Barcelona.

Since The Special One took charge he has lead his side into ten El Clasicos… and failed to win a single one inside 90 minutes. The only time they have got the better of their Catalan opponents was in the Copa Del Rey final, a game they won in extra-time.

But if he can finally get a win over Pep Guardiola’s men this time around (17/4 to do so according to Boylesports), they will all but wrap up the La Liga title for this season. [Read full article »]

Alonso 22/1 to win fourth Bahrain Grand Prix

Whether you agree with the politics surrounding the Bahrain Grand Prix or not, it appears that it will now go ahead and fingers crossed everything goes smoothly.

Mercedes will be looking to follow up their victory in China and are 5/1 (SkyBet) to claim their second win of the season. Nico Rosberg claimed his first Formula One victory at the 111th time of asking in Shanghai and he is 9/1 to get his 2nd race win here in Bahrain.

The Bahrain GP has been raced just eight times to date, with Ferrari claiming half of them. They are likely to find it tough to complete the five-time however, hence why they are best-priced odds of 20/1 with Ladbrokes to do so.

Fernando Alonso won the last Bahrain Grand Prix in 2010 and the two-time F1 champion is 22/1 (Skybet) to become the first driver to win four times at the circuit. [Read full article »]
