Milan Derby

Inter take the bragging rights in Milan derby

For years now, the once famous Milan Derby has lost its sheen. Once upon a time, it used to be the standout fixture of the season, much like the El Clasico in Spain. After all, the Derby della Madonnina is a game that has featured stars such as Cafu, Maldini, Nesta, Adriano, Ronaldo, Kaka, Ronaldinho, Baresi, Eto’o, Milito, Zanetti, Julio Cesar and so on. But hardly any of the past decade’s derby held any significance …

Rangers march on – Scottish League moves hands

There’s never been much competition in the Scottish Premier League, let’s be honest. Rangers have won the title 54 times, Celtic have won it 51 times, and all other clubs combined have 19 titles. If that doesn’t scream a two-team league, then what does? Between 1904-1931, it was only these two clubs that traded titles. This was the longest period without any other club intervening, until now. It was 1985 when Aberdeen secured their 4th …
