  11. How do you solve a problem like diving?

    Iain Macintosh

    It is astonishing that Ashley Young doesn't hurt himself more often. You only have to run near him to send him flying through the air like crockery off a bad magician's tablecloth. Sir Alex Ferguson has warned him and David Moyes has warned him, but ...

  15. Bale luster lost as saga drags out

    Iain Macintosh

    If you had placed a bet at the start of the summer on whose conduct would be the most reprehensible during this transfer window, it is unlikely that you would have staked heavily on Gareth Bale. As annoying as his trademarked heart-finger celebration...
