From the dim and distant past, the Nigerian Football team's 1949 tour of England. Playing barefoot, they beat Marine Crosby 5-2, watched by 7,000 people.

Wigan Robin Park beat title favourites Bootle 2-1 in the North West Counties prem on Saturday in a cracking game, a league thats well worth a look for anyone fed up of paying 62 quid a ticket!

On Friday 28th March I'm taking part in the Wigan Streetsleep, raising money for The Brick charity who try to ensure nobody in Wigan finding themselves homeless spends a 2nd night on the streets and providing help and support via a foodbank.  Every penny counts so if you can spare anything at all its much appreciated - this link will take you to my sponsorship page thanks.

Ah, the deathless fame of the Football star.

Some are remembered for winning the World Cup, some the Ballon d'Or... and then there's Habib Habibou.

Simply unbelievable, Adkins has done nothing wrong, hope he lands a decent gig and can replicate the spell he had at Southampton.

Having seen him play many a time for Wigan, he's about the most unlikely lad you'd have picked out to make a success at it as a manager, every credit to him!

Roberto Martinez will be pleased. He's now got a 33% better chance of keeping Wigan up once again.

I see Fergie is complaining again about a decision not to award a penalty at Spurs. I recall him saying that these decisions even themselves out over a season, unless it's United!

I can understand 50:50s evening themselves out but that is as clear cut penalty as you'll likely to see. I tend to by on the side of the officials when it comes to decisions but that was just incompetence by the linesman and referee who had a clear view of the incident.

Surely, United have had the benefit of clear cut decisions for the opposition going United's way.

The Spurs shot that crossed the line a couple of seasons ago was only one I could think of. Saying that, goal line decisions are difficult to get right without the benefit of replay.

Not sure about that, if we can't beat the likes of Sunderland at our place we've no right to be staying up.
