  • In Brad we trust: why Villa’s American is a constant blessing

    By Brian Sears 31 March 2010 Many things in life are uncertain, from the changing of the seasons (these days) to whether the world will explode when the Large Hadron Collider really gets a move on, although reports of the initial collision of protons at record energy levels in a tube beneath Switzerland are encouraging.

  • Goals record in sight as Big Three attack 50+ tallies at home

    By Brian Sears 19 March 2010 Liverpool, beware.
