The Last Roman – Part 32: Euro 2008 Special | @FMCM_FC

Hello everyone and welcome to Spain for Euro 2008. The less said about the season we’ve just had with Roma the better. Hopefully Italy can give us some good news. We’ve won 2 World Cups so far but we couldn’t even get out of the group in the last Euros so we are aiming to get out the group as a bare minimum this time. We are in a group with Iceland, Greece & Croatia so it shouldn’t be a problem.

World According to Warnock Episode 15 | London Nightlife | @CornishZak

Hello Warnock loathers… Last time out Niall’s Cheltenham started an ascent up the table. Can we continue the climb?

We start with a league game at Darlington. A double-red card for Darlo in the first half effectively sees the game off for them. We can’t score more than a penalty rebound, but it’s enough to secure a 1-0 win.

The Last Roman – Part 31: Rome Is Falling | @FMCM_FC

Happy Tuesday all. We are back in Rome. Totti is leading the charge again. Last season we finished 2nd behind a rampant Torino side who blew everyone away. We have a chance in the Champions League again. If we can avoid Barcelona that would be nice. Let’s dive in.

Playing All The Way – Leeds United P01: Dusting Off The Boots

I’m back again for your reading displeasure. Leeds United? Everyone’s favourites right…as ever after finding it a good laugh bringing Keegan’s Newcastle side of 92/93 together again, I’ve decided giving the unlikely lads a crack at the Premier League will be even more fun.

Now with Gordon Strachan and John McClelland now 41 years old, it might be more of a challenge than it was with Newcastle’s 92/93 side. Also, with John Lukic in the sticks, keeping the goals out will be another issue.

So, what have we got to compare to back in 1991/92? Won the league with 82 points. Managed to get to the quarterfinals of the League Cup and knocked out in the third round of the FA Cup.
