Sunderland FC are all over the newspapers, front and back, goose stepping their way into controversy.
The reason for the ruckus? Signor Paolo Di Canio, their new manager, is a self-proclaimed fascist.

Well, it seems as if the David Cameron of the 20th century is alive and, sadly, well in the 21st century. Albeit it with a new identity and he looks slightly younger. Or maybe it is just a new person...
Yes, Swindon's favo
We all know football fans can come up with some pretty sick taunts when they're trying to bait their rivals. David Beckham famously lost it after one too many chants about his sour-faced missus taking it up the arse, we kno
It's not unheard of for dedicated fans to change their name to show loyalty to their favourite team or a star player. Even BBM has done it, although admittedly it was only to throw police off the scent after we kept sending
You can't trust taxi drivers. Whether they're deliberately taking you the long way home to ramp up the fare, or indecently exposing themselves to drunk young girls in the back seat on a Friday night, they're always looking
We all have ways of taking out our frustration, just ask BBM's resident intern Mikey - who regularly has scalding-hot cups of coffee thrown into his face if he's failed to get the right amount of milk in our morning beverag
It may sound as unlikely as Cheryl Cole lifting the restraining order against BBM, but as The Times reported last month a 24-team league, featuring 16 permanent sides including Manchester United, Manchester City, Arsenal an
Hearty congratulations all round for Western Sydney Wanderers. BBM might come across as quite cynical at times, in fact we've been described as ‘a deeply disturbed individual' by more than one police profiler, but the Wan
As any bitter Leeds fans will tell you (the few who have learnt to speak rather than grunt), it's hard to admit when your glory days are over. So the cro-magnon Neanderthals who live in caves around Elland Road should feel
Europe's premier competition finally resumed last week with the heavyweight first-leg clashes continuing this week. Juventus recorded a crushing victory against Celtic in Scotland to make progression for Neil Lennon's side
Manchester United fans better pray they win the league this season because their pre-season for next year is already fucked after the club's marketing men booked them for an energy-sapping trip to Sydney.
No doubt the purp
After years of being associated with Russell Brand, West Ham United fans finally have a link to genuine comedy after the club briefly appeared in an episode of The Simpsons.
A flag with the team's name on it is seen strewn
As well as being known as one of the greatest ginger footballers of his generation, Manchester United legend Paul Scholes is also famously an Oldham Athletic fan.
And those generous Latics fans clearly feel all clubs shoul
While teams in Spain and Germany enjoy the holiday season with their feet up teams in the English Premier League continue to slog it out, playing on Boxing Day, New Year's Day and the weekend in-between. Manchester United e
As we edged closer to the halfway stage of the season and the Xmas frenzy of a match schedule, the biggest game of them all had still eluded us thus far, until this week. On Sunday, the Manchester Derby between the two bes
Another week and another game without a clean sheet for Man United and another game where conceding the first goal is becoming their forte. But oh lordy, what they are lacking in defence at the moment, the firepower that th
The two fastest goals of the season were both scored in this midweek cluster of games held under the floodlights around the country.

West Brom were the only team to win away as their incredible run continued this weekend. A 4-2 win at Sunderland was just deserves for a controlled performance throughout. At one point, the Baggies were actually up to third
Week 12 of the season and Man City were the main beneficiaries as far as the title race is concerned. The Champions 5-0 thrashing of Villa, coupled with away defeats for Man United and Chelsea meant that the blue half of Ma
If most managers like to use game 10 of the season as a marker for how their season is progressing, then Sir Alex Ferguson will be happy with how things are going so far as Manchester United replaced Chelsea and returne
What has got to happen for the football bigwigs to actually do something about these outrageous refereeing decisions that we are seeing these days? With the amount of money being banded about in the game at the minute, you
Did you know that you can go on any celebrity's Wikipedia page and write "is a massive nonce" just after their name. Of course, if it's Jimmy Savile's page you'd be bang on the money, but otherwise it demonstrates the peril
After another agonising gap of international football last week, the bread and butter of Premier League finally returned. Two local derbies from both ends of the country were the pick of the games this week, with local brag
The Premier League finally swung into full flow over the past couple of weeks with some of the big guns due to test themselves out against each other.
Super Sunday in week 5 was a cracker with Liverpool vs Man United the p
As predicted, John Terry and handshake refusals are now becoming a regular occurrence in a weekend overshadowed by the ‘will he, won't he' nonsense at Loftus Road. Elsewhere, Arsenal looked like a team possessed, Paul Sch
Well, it seems Arsenal had a bit of karma happen both ways on Sunday as the ghost of Robin Van Persie sort of returned to the Gunners, but haunted both Southampton and Liverpool. Also AVB has gone mad at Spurs, West Ham pic
The debacle that is the summer transfer window finally came to a close on the last day in August, with the Premier League already nearly 3 games in.
Manchester City, as predicted were the biggest movers on the final day, s
Someone's telling porkies, but who do you trust between a Yank and a Spaniard? It's a tough, tough call. On one hand there's Roberto Martinez claiming Liverpool offered him a juicy old contract to ditch the bright lights of
Anyone remember North Queensland Fury? Unless you're reading this in Townsville (the laziestly-named town in the world), you've probably already wiped them from your mind. They were the ill-fated A-League team who bought Ro
