    Believing in miracles: Cloughie, Forest and all that

    BOOK REVIEW By Daniel Storey 16 November 2015 I Believe In Miracles, Daniel Taylor’s account of Nottingham Forest’s European Cup-winning team, could not differ more greatly from the stereotype of non-fiction books accompanying films. So often they act as an extended advert for the cinematic production, DVD sales where profits are typically made. They adhere […]

    By Brian Sears 31 December 2010 Nowich City won more matches in the league in 2010 than any other club in English professional football, and those 27 victories put them in No1 place in our composite table of Football League clubs for the calendar year.

  • Festive front-running Foxes fancied for top three but Villa doomed

    By Brian Sears 24 December 2015 Christmas is a time for reflection and a time to look forward and neither offers any merriment for Aston Villa.
