What’s Actually Wrong at Manchester United?

It’s a mess over at Old Trafford at the moment. Each match day another record is carted out by the commentators prior to kick off, and duly dismissed come the full time whistle. Teams go to the ‘Theatre of Dreams’ no longer dreaming of a shock result, but expected to pile the misery onto a Manchester United side undergoing their first crisis of confidence in modern football history. David Moyes is taking the heat and whether he’s dealing with well or not, he’s ultimately an unfair target. But did anyone really anticipate this going any other way? In a bid to shed some light on the situation, here’s what I think’s actually going / gone wrong.

Horror Tackles – Yet Another Rant

I’ve approached the situation of tackling in English football previously in two posts, in both instances it was (in my opinion) that the tacklers had been deemed ‘dirty’ because of the resulting injuries caused. So let’s delve into the mire once more with two much talked about tackles this week – one from Vincent Kompany and another from Glen Johnson.

The Arrogance Of The English Premier League

As Manchester United crashed out of the Champions League group stage last night (along with the more graceful exit of Manchester City) it left arguably the 3rd and 4th best domestic teams flying the Premier League flag. Worryingly neither club is fancied over Barcelona or Real Madrid as winners of the crown – wait, Real Madrid? Since when were English teams chasing Madrid down BEFORE Barcelona…

Amazon & Two Reasons Why I Shop Online

I’ve just seen another bash at Amazon and their new price check app that they’re promoting, in all honesty I don’t really know a great deal about the app but what frustrates me is the non-consumer focus from the complaints that I’ve seen so far, they’re very much borne from a protectionist stance and disregard the consumer completely. In-store shopping has always frustrated me, so here’s two reasons why I prefer to shop online.

Magento VAT Relief

I’ve recently completed some Magento work that required a slightly complex VAT solution to facilitate automated VAT relief for disabled people and charities that qualify to purchase certain products VAT free at the time of purchase.

There is a Magento module out there to purchase, which given the lack of information on Google relating to this topic I was really surprised about, but it seemed to require a declaration for each individual product and that wasn’t really suitable for the project I was working on, so here’s my solution.

Meet Magento UK 2011

It’s now exactly 3 weeks ago since I was making my way home from the first Meet Magento UK conference in London, testament to the busy few weeks I’ve had since, but with a few loose ends now tied up it’s finally time for some reflection on my first Magento conference.

Abandon Ship! The Gunners Are Losing Men Fast

This article is a re-post and merge of my now defunct OurFootballBlog football writing blog from 2010 – 2011.

Between Internet connection problems, a weekend and a bout of dog sitting it has been a whole week since our last post! Fear not, it’s been one worth waiting for as I bring you news of no less than three players on their way out of Arsenal in the very near future.

For those interested (ie most of you) it’s not difficult to name the three players who’ve been rife with recent speculation, however it seems as if this is quickly developing into serious transfer news rather than tittle tattle. Let’s take a look at the individuals.
