Lebanon Washed Right Out

By Daniel Andruczyk Winter is upon us, if the American Midwest conditions are anything to go by (we have got to –19 C a few days ago) then Europe is also experiencing tough times.

The Not So Independent, Independent Commission?

By Daniel Andruczyk So you really need to have been under a rock 6 miles underground the last year to not know about the “Independent Commission” that is supposedly being set up in Australia to control the game.

But before we all start bellowing hallelujah, the saviour is here, lets take some Valium and a step back and really analyse what this would mean for...

Jamaica Look to go Pro

By Daniel Andruczyk With the Atlantic Cup almost a week behind us now its given me time to sit back relax and think about what I had just witnessed and ponder some of the more interesting news that came out of the tournament. This news wasn’t announced in any pomp and ceremony but on the side in just regular discussions over beers and food late late in the night while I was working. The first hint of this came when...
