A Truly Worrying Football Trend? The football style of Man Utd does not please Adidas.

A story caught my eye this evening that may reflect totally innocuous statements from the Chief Executive of Adidas, but as a forerunner for the future it concerns me. Adidas making a statement that although they are satisfied with the amount of shirts being sold they were not overly happy with the ” style of play” of Manchester United. We currently have SKY and other broadcasters dictating the timings of football games. Two of my teams games Brentford have been moved to friday night kick offs to accommodate TV broadcasting. This does not suit everyone, but to have a kit sponsor comment on the style of play? I don’t like this one little bit.

” Man Utd playing style is not exactly what Adidas wants to see”

Where might this lead to? Further influence? I don’t really know. I wonder whose kit Molesey use…….does it explain their style… excellent one actually, and better than Man Utd…


Darlington Football Club . All football fans should read this story

The story of what has happened to Darlington is so well written that I am not going to even paraphrase anything other than to say it makes sad reading and could apply to any football club. just click the link


My own photos of Darlington are all on my website

Brentford 1 Basingstoke 0

There was little real evidence of the maigic of the FA cup today at Griffin Park. a slightly better crowd than expected due to the 1pm kick off and the mild reduction in admission prices to £15 of 3553. Brentford started well and fully deserved their opening goal from sam saunders, a free kick from 5 yards outside the box. but that then led to a decline in both effort and quality, and being honest Bees looked like they were shepherding a 1-0 victory for 80 minutes. good game? not really. Did basingstoke deserve a draw? yes. Only Diardouraga and saunders can really claim any credit. Grella failed to give a clue as to how he scored 4 goals midweek and was woeful at times. Still, Bees are in the second round of the FA cup and thats only a game away from Chelsea, Man utd etc……

finally, a third win on the trot for Walton and Hersham, away at Croydon Athletic 3-2.  A great run.
