    Hey Alan,

    Yet another UWCC title match has been and gone, and Roma are STILL the Champions! This match included a sensational return to the goals for a World Cup winner and equal the biggest win of the season so far!

    It also look ahead to the mouth-watering Roma vs Juventus tie next weekend! A prediction competition, match report, and video highlights all in one place, what more could you want ;-)

    If that sales pitch didn't persuade you, could you just take a look for me please!

    PS. Don't forget to vote on the poll!

    Hey Alan, I thought you'd be interested in checking out my in-depth piece on the women's draw at the Australian Open.

    Hey Alan,

    As it's a new year, and a new decade for that matter, I thought it was time to shake up the old, stale UWCC articles, so have a gander at the new look one!

    It's now a mixture of match report and prediction competition, as well as incorporating video highlights and league and form information into the article, so even if you don't know too much about Serie A, then you can still make an educated guess at the next result!

    This match in particular was a cracker with two injury time goals!

    Could you have a look and tell me what you think please?

    P.S Don't forget to vote on the poll!

    It's a tiny bit late as it took longer than expected to write it, but my review of 2009 is finally here! Last year's one won the AOTD award and hopefully I've done enough on this one to equal that feat, but I'll leave you to be the judge of that!

    With 25 great moments from 12 different sports, and with everyone from Barcelona to France, the Yankees to the Lakers, and Usain Bolt to Tiger Woods there is something for everyone in this slideshow, plus a ranked top ten as the final slide!

    If you get a chance would you mind checking it out? Cheers!

    Hi Alan,

    I'd be grateful if you could give your thoughts on my roundup of Day 2 of the women's tournament in Brisbane.

    It's that time of year again! Time to vote for your B/R World Football Writer of the Year. A final shortlist of 10 has been devised with great difficulty, and now you can vote for who you think deserves the accolade! Let the voting commence!


    If you haven't seen it already, I have written the first of many "decade in review" pieces, and this one looks at Liverpool's top 15 matches of the noughties. Have a look and see what you think, you might be surprised at what ISN'T number one!
