1976

Kettering Town are staring down the barrel non-existance, with a winding up order on the horizon. It would be a shame to see the first English club to adopt a sponsor, go out of business – so instead of living up to the harsh realities of the modern day, they have traveled back to the simpler days of 1976.

 

Messi or Ronaldo? How about both?

For the last couple of years, everyone has been spouting the same nonsense when asking who is better out of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

To be honest, I’m a little bored of it. Instead of comparing these two phenoms of the game, let’s just appreciate them. We’re lucky to be in a generation when both these guys collectively blow the world away as they try to out-do each other.

So let’s just sit back, and enjoy the show.

Ronaldo’s record-breaking 100th La Liga goal in 92 games:
