Villas-Boas SO not like Mourinho

People in football are often very diplomatic in interviews. They’re very complimentary, very safe, and they try their best not to step on anybody’s toes with what they say. I spoke to Edwin van der Sar recently, and he wouldn’t even name the best player he’d ever played with to avoid offending the others! It […]

Face time

AMID all the excitement over the launch of Google+ (which, my friend David Lian wrote about in his column last week), many people have totally overlooked Facebook’s latest announcement – Facebook Video Calling. In a collaboration with Skype (not their first joint-project, mind you), Facebook is allowing users to “bring your conversations to life”. A […]

Jones vs. Henderson

So who got the better deal – Liverpool or Manchester United? One is a tough-tackling, uncompromising monster of a defender in the Jamie Carragher mould; the other, an elegant playmaker that could, by some stretch of the imagination, be seen as the English Kaka. Both players are well-built, at around 6 ft 2 in, contrary […]

The automated web

ONE of the things that I love doing most with the various websites I use is automating their services. These automations are usually self-contained within a service or application, the way my Office email sends an auto-reply when I’m not in the office, or how my Twitter account automatically blocks certain users from sending me […]

A Malaysian in Cardiff

IT HAS only been less than a year since Malaysian businessman Datuk Chan Tien Ghee took charge of Cardiff City, but he’s already experienced the heartache of narrowly missing out on Premier League promotion, seen the departure of long-serving manager Dave Jones, helped the club out of its financial crisis, and survived Craig Bellamy.

How do we feel about Phil?

After a few summers of relative scrounging, Alex Ferguson had promised Manchester United fans a spending spree, so how do feel about his first piece of business, Blackburn defender Phil Jones?
