An open letter to Galatasaray re: Roberto Mancini

When Roberto was very harshly sacked by … Continue reading

Staying warm at the game: The Marouane Fellaini wig

Many Manchester United fans decided to show their appreciation for new signing Marouane Fellaini by donning curly black wigs in his honour. Of course, there were enterprising types outside Old Trafford for Saturday’s game against Crystal Palace selling Fellaini wigs to anyone who cared to part with their cash.

The Chelsea man wandered the streets of the city with football socks pulled up to his knees.
