About Burley Time

Congratulations to George Burley on being awarded the League Managers Association 'Manager of the Year' award. Burley has done a truly excellent job in not only keeping Ipswich Town in the Premiership but leading them into Europe too. It's good to see that the LMA acknowledges the job done by mangers not handed success to them on a plate and gives credit where it's due for the incredible work done by managers at clubs where money is an issue.

He Comes Form Senegal...

Arsenal's midfield lynchpin Patrick Vieira has been awarded Carling Player of the Season, none of the Teddy Sheringham nonsense from them. Vieira's workrate, consistency and technical ability unsurpassed in the Premiership IMO.... yes including Roy Keane, has resulted in him finally being recognised as one of the most important footballers in the Premiership. A statement from the awards panel read as follows......

"'Vieira has it all skill on the ball, pace, and the ability to score and create goals.

"He has also been committed to the Arsenal cause throughout the season.

"He has dominated the midfield area in the Carling Premiership and has shown the rest of us how it should be done.

"Vieira is the central figure around which the Arsenal team works, he is the player that makes them tick. If he continues this form in the future he could well be made Arsenal's captain in seasons to come."

Well done Paddy, you deserve it.
