We picked Paul Lambert for taking charge of his first Stoke game and giving them a royal kick up the arse! As well as picking up the win they also kept a clean sheet.


On 16 January 2018, Ronaldinho confirmed his retirement from Football.

A true Legend of the beautiful game. He played football in a childlike way, always for the love of the game and always with a smile on his face. Below is a link to an open letter Ronaldinho wrote to his 8 year-old self. Its a fantastic letter explaining how life will be for the 8 year-old Ronaldinho.

Letter to My Younger Self

This is a quote that stuck out for me:

You’re not going to feel sadness right away. That will come later. A few years from now, you will accept that Dad is never coming back on earth. But what I want you to understand is that every time you have a ball at your feet, Dad will be with you.

When you have a football at your feet, you are free. You are happy. It’s almost like you are hearing music. That feeling will make you want to spread joy to others.”

It;s a great insight into the mind of Ronaldinho. It was this Brazilian that gave the nudge for Messi to come through the ranks at Barca. He gave him only this advise:, “Play with happiness. Play free. Just play with the ball.” The rest is history.

A true legend of the game. A person that truly embodied everything his Dad told him before he past away, Play free.
