In my experience, predictions made by the ‘expert pundits’ have a success rate equal to that of Bangladesh in Test Cricket. Factor in that even a draw counts as a success to the Bangladeshis and it makes this statistic infinitely bleaker. All sooth saying that have been done with Reputations as a frame of reference this time around in South Africa have fallen flat; as flat as Russell Peters’ stand up shows are when you watch them for even just the second time.

Giggs + Valencia + Nani + Fletcher + Scholes + Carrick = One Frank Lampard

One Hundred And Three Goals. Only one Super Frankie Lampard.
Did I mention Premier League Champions?
One minute I’m composing the title concession in my head. The next minute I’m jumping over the sofas and chairs and everything else in my way in my house cos this house just ain’t big enough to hold a Manc celebrating a Double Double over the most hated team in the league. And our most hated team ever.
More on this after the Spud hopefully do something with Chelshit. Maybe kick Terry in the balls. I’m sure Wayne Bridge would appreciate that.
Every team goes into a new season with ambitions befitting their status. The newly promoted sides attempt desperately to stay up, the stragglers of the previous year hope to secure a place mid table, the decent but not great sides aim for the UEFA Cup or the Europa League as it has been rechristened, Arsenal, United, Chelsea and Liverpool shoot for the league and the Champions League.

You’ve got big balls, and we’ve got big balls.

- AC/DC on Carlo Ancelotti.
The Kansas City Shuffle is when everybody looks left, you go right. It’s a gamble. It’s also spectacular when pulled off correctly. Just ask Slevin.
And in yet another episode of Didier, Didier, What’s the Score?, that’s exactly what Ancelotti pulled.To start with Drogba on the bench was a gamble, and there are no two ways about it. Very few defenders are capable of handling the kind of power and physical presence Drogba brings to the playing field. Yet, how do you better a team that banged in seven against Villa? But in case you don’t play Drogba and you lose, we all know where the finger of blame will point. I’m sure Ancelotti considered all this and more before handing in the team sheet on Saturday. The move showed that, paraphrasing Kipling, he can make one heap of all his winnings, and risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss, or in other words, put his massive cahunas on the line when it matters most.
That’s why Carlo Ancelotti becomes the inaugural recipient of BigFourZa’s Big-Balls award.
