West Midland’s Premier League Clubs Take A Hammering

That was a bad weekend for Premier League football in the West Midlands, with both Villa and Albion going down to Everton and Liverpool respectively. The result means that both Villa and Albion remain in mid-table with the same points while fans of Everton and Liverpool are all starting to dream of the Champions League. […]

A testing weekend for West Midlands football

This week Aston Villa are looking forward to playing Everton at Villa Park. I am sure the media will be focussing on the battle of the Belgians. Villa will be delighted to see Christian Benteke back, and I thought he really made a difference when he came on against Spurs last weekend. The Villa defence […]

If Real Madrid were a franchise…

Imagine you could buy Real Madrid as a franchise opportunity… It would be a ‘no-brainer’ right? A proven history of success, a clear identity, lots of happy customers, star quality and constant reinvestment of monies raised.  Sadly Real Madrid is a football club and not business franchise opportunity, but when you’re considering a franchise all […]
