I have been a football and cricket journalist since 1999, working for the likes of the Daily Telegraph, the Guardian, PA, Uefa.com, Goal.com, ESPN, theFA.com and many other media organisations, covering the European and world game, with particular attention on top-flight English football.
I have a deep interest and passion for the European Cup, and have either attended, covered or watched every World Cup and European Championship finals since 1986, while I am also a Liverpool fan.
Hi Richard, we are looking for guest bloogers for our cricket website http://www.cricanalysis.com. Do let us know if you can contribute articles. Thanks!
So in 2012, messi was not only top scorer in liga, CL, and in all competitions but he broke the record for most gols ever in a calender year. Yet some thought ronaldo should have won it because he inspired madrid to the liga title, while messi only won CDR. So following that logic, we can all agree that messi is more deserving of this years balon since he inspired barca to the title while ronaldo win 0 trophies
about george weah:
"However, still a slightly odd winner though, with the Liberian claiming just a domestic cup double with Paris Saint-Germain in 1995 to see off Bayern Munich striker Jurgen Klinsmann in second place."
...and what does this have to do with anything? yes, traditionally the winner has been on a successful team but that's not a requirement by any means. sometimes the best player isn't on the best, or even a good, team. this is terrible logic. especially considering Bayern won nothing that year, which contradicts the original point anyway
Stop writing United articles you idiot.
Hi there...Good article -Potential Successors to David Moyes at Manchester United-...your genius... i love it!
If your article "The 10 Best Dribblers in the Premier League" is based solely on the number of successful dribbles per game, you should probably rename it "The 10 Most Successful Dribblers in the Premier League" in the name of accuracy. But hey, why be accurate when you can give it a misleading title to get more clicks, right? Hack.
stop criticising people
in your article about arteta vs carrick you write:
"The former Liverpool and England international thought that it was Arteta who should have been named man of the match against his old team following an eye-catching display patrolling in front of the home team’s back four, with the 31-year-old also playing a key role in his side’s vital opening goal. Speaking after the game on Sky Sports, Redknapp said:
Arteta's role today was a different class and if you compare that to what Lucas - who never really covered the ground and the areas that he needed to - did for Liverpool, he was spot on."
arteta never played for liverpool. he played for everton. same city. different club. come on mate, that's just lazy journalism
