    Hey Varun,

    The inevitable has happened... the UWCC title has gone to a team I have trouble spelling the name of in a league I know nothing about... at least I've heard of the team though, and they're well known throughout the world...

    Roma lost the title to Panathinaikos last night in the Europa League, but it's not all bad news! The match was a thriller with three goals and a penalty in the last ten minutes, as well as a last minute winner from a familiar face!

    It also contained a wonderful goal from Vucinic (see that highlights included for that screamer) and a substitue scoring with their first touch on two different occasions!

    Also included in the article are Roma title reign stats, which stand up against the very best there has ever been!

    The UWCC needs YOU!

    Hey Varun,

    The John Terry allegations have been well documented now, and in the latest Great Debate article I ask a lot of questions surrounding it, mainly "has it damaged England's World Cup hopes?" I think it has, but not for the reasons you might expect...

    Also, Was Capello right to strip Terry of the captaincy? Is Ferdinand the right man to replace him? and what are your overriding thoughts on the whole farce?

    Let your opinion be known!

    Is that a pisstake? Looking forward to joining the mainstream media? I think I would rather chop my big toe off and eat it. I have a terrible aversion to the mainstream media, its all so limp and cliched, at least on sites like this you get the real deal, people aren't paid so they write from their gut, something the mainstream lost long ago.

    Hey Varun,

    The Roma machine roars on as they extend their unbeaten run to 17 matches, retaining the UWCC in the process, but this presents an even bigger question: Can they challenge Inter Milan for the Serie A title?

    On this form, who says they can't?

    Their most recent match against Siena was another great match, with two genuinely world class goals, one of which came in the last minute!

    Also, find out where the title would be now if Manchester United had beaten Chelsea in the Community Shield, and in another brand new feature find out where the title was exactly a year ago today!

    Varun, I must shamelessly plug my article. But it's worth a plug, I think.

    The United saga continues and I now have PROOF that Rooney is leaving. Well, I have circumstantial evidence that is.

    Hey Varun,

    Another day, another UWCC title match and, yes, another sales pitch!

    In another action packed match see if Roma were able to become the second most successful UWCC champions ever! There was also the less-important matter of progressing to the Coppa Italia semi-finals too!

    This latest incident-packed match included two red cards, a whole host of chances, and a fine winning goal...again, that's just the second half!

    Also, find out how Birmingham were just one kick away from being the champions in a brand new feature!
