Hi Guys, welcome to my blog @ my personal e-mail and websites and and checkout our GIZMO page and WISH LIST and FUN RELATED  SEXY t-shirts .


Sunday, March 11th United were 2 points behind City and at the end of the day, they were 1 point ahead of City.

United won 2-0 at home to WBA  and City could only draw 2-2 away to Swansea .

Since then United have maintained their lead, but the points gap keeps changing. A couple of games ago it looked nailed on for Uniteds’ 20th Title.

Because of Evertons’ great display at Old Trafford in a 4-4 draw, City are back in with a shout of winning the Title for the first time since the 1967/68 season.

The fact is that if City win tonight they will go above United by a small but significant goal difference, which in itself is worth a point.

I think City are best equipped to win the Barclaycard Premiership because United have a lot of youth but a few fading stars.

If City don’t win the Title , I think Mancini will be another statistic in City’s list of ‘sacked managers’.


I am going to cut you loose now because I am going to my local pub the ‘Prince of WalesChorley to watch the match and soak up the ‘atmosphere’.

So farewell for now. Take care and stay healthy.

Hiya Guys

Well Man Utd have answered the question I asked in my last blog.

They went into todays game trailing City by 2 points, and at the end of the day they are leading by one point and have also reduced the goal difference deficit.

My forecast was a 3:1 win for  United at home to West Brom,  tho they won 2:0. At least I got the goal difference correct.

I forecast  City for a 2:2 draw at Swansea  because I couldn’t see them beating Swansea. I was going well til Swansea scored in the last 10 minutes..

That result will not give City any confidence going into this weeks UEFA match against Sporting Lisbon.

Looks as tho  Wigan are still fighting to stave off relegation with a well earned and deserved 1:1 draw at

Norwich .

I’ve just been watching Spanish La Liga.  Racing Club Santander v Barcelona. Messi has just scored his 50th goal in 43 matches. Last season it took him 49 matches to record his 50th goal, what a player.

Many years ago (50/60’s I think) a well known player on Merseyside (Dixie Dean) scored 60 goals in a season, there were in those days approx 46 games in a season. In those days, when you take into account the muddy quagmire pitches and a ball that absorbed the mud and water, making it heavy, it makes me ask the question how would  Dixie have figured in today’s modern game?

Another thought for you before I sign off. How much would a Georgie Best in his Man Utd pomp have been transferred for in today’s market?  What a team including Best, Messi and Iniesta that would have been?

Well that’s it for another blog.

Hope you had a good weekend, take care

Which half of Manchester is gonna take the Title, blue or red?

It’s been a two horse race for most of the season.

Friday must have been a day of mourning for both clubs and it wasn’t even the Champions League.

I heard some City fans saying, “we’ll pull a one goal deficit back at home, and at least we didn’t lose 2:3 at home”.

Well they shouldn’t be so confident cos Lisbon were the better side and if goalkeeper Joe Hart hadn’t been on his game the return leg would have been a formality.

As for United, I think they are really  gonna struggle to get the right result at Bilbao who have 3 away goals which means United have to win by 2 clear goals.

I think Spanish clubs will win both of the European titles.

At least the Manchester clubs can take some solace by winning their respective matches today (Sunday).

United HAVE to win at home to West Brom to stay in touch with City who would stay top even with a draw at Swansea because of their far superior goal fifference.

My forecast is  Man Utd 3 v 1 West Brom      .

My forecast is  Swansea City 2 v 2 Man City .

I can’t close my blog without saying well done to Bolton  and Blackburn for moving out of the relegation places because of their wins on Saturday.

That’s it for now, so take care til next time

Before I get into my wingeing blog, I’d appreciate your opinion on myteamshirts , latest design, so here it is for you to click on to get a detailed closeup view.


We can produce any of the 16 International teams home and away 2-in-1 shirts.

I shud be a clairvoyant and not a blogger.

I mentioned in a previous blog for fans to back ‘old boys’ to score against their old clubs

clubs ie Swansea (Barcelona)? player Scott Sinclair scoring a cracker against Chelsea.

I wonder what his betting odds were?

Chelsea were well rattled in the first half and also in the last 15 minutes with Ashley Cole sent off for a deserved second yellow card and they did well to equalise in the 93rd minute.. They have received 53 yellow cards which is the highest in the Premiership averaging 2 cards a game.

I think their success bubble has burst and they might just manage to gain a UEFA spot at the end of the season but Champions League soccer is out of the question. Watch this space.

Whose gonna stop Man Utd now after an easy 3 points against Stoke City and Man City dropping 3 points against Everton? Both teams level on 54 points and only 6 goals difference in City’s favour divides them.

I watched Everton v Man City match on Sky while watching Swansea v Chelsea and Man Utd v Stoke on my Laptop via a superb FREE Internet website. I can’t disclose to you all on here the site address cos too many loggers might drag the reception down, but if anyone does want the address then reply to my blogg with your e-mail address and I will reply to you with the web address. It’s a brilliant site that televises all sports and even the ESPN channel.

Everythings crossed for Blackburn Rovers getting 3 points tonight from Newcastle Utd and I will be watching them closely.

Anyway after another hectic last day of the transfer window thats all for now from this ‘Old Git’ Jimbo at and

Take care

Up And Running!


Blackburn Rovers 3-in-1 Shirt

Been watching this weekend’s football matches and once again the referee’s are causing controversy with dubious decisions. Is it time for DRS (decision referral system) to be introduced?

Would Everton have drawn with Blackburn if DRS was in place because of the handball incident leading up to Everton’s goal?

The Mancunians rule over London this weekend, the matches once again embroiled with controversy. Should Balotelli have been sent off for his kicking of Scott Parker? If he had not been on the pitch he would not have got the penalty from which he scored, so would it have been 2-2 instead of 3-2 for City?

As for United, no-one could expect them to repeat their early season 8-2 drubbing of Arsenal, but they still came away with 3 points and are still hanging onto City’s coat-tails.

Back in our business world the waiting is over! Finally, our protected design is now in the Public Domain under Registration Number 4022450 as certificated by the Intellectual Property Office.

The idea for Miteamshirts originally came to me when I bought an England inside-out football shirt, a good few years ago, from a sports shop in Preston, Lancs, and also from the diagonal stripe across the front of one of the Dutch club’s shirts. Does anyone remember which club this is because I’m having a senior moment?

However, here at Miteamshirts, we decided to go one step further and make ours a three-in-one shirt.

By visiting our website at or you can now view all 20 of our unique customised Premier League inspired fashion t-shirts/football shirts. And we’re not limited just to the Premier League. You can request us to manufacture ANY team shirt. Whether it be football, any league, corporate or local school strips, we can supply these for you. ALL SPORTS are available, from Archery to Volleyball, Basketball to Tennis, Cricket to Squash – CAN WE DO IT? YES WE CAN!!! Bob the Builder ain’t got nothing on us!

Due to copyright restrictions we can’t put the official club names or badges on our site so we have listed them under the team nicknames. BUT we CAN mention them here in this blog! So, for those of you who are interested in purchasing or even just viewing our shirts, the teams currently available, but by no means limited to, are: Arsenal (Gunners/Gooners), Aston Villa (Villans), Blackburn Rovers (Rovers), Bolton Wanderers (Trotters), Chelsea (Pensioners), Everton (Toffees), Fulham (Cottagers), Liverpool (Reds), Manchester City (Blues), Manchester United (Red Devils), Newcastle United ((Magpies), Norwich City (Canaries), Queens Park Rangers (Superhoops/Hoops), Stoke City (Potters), Sunderland (Black Cats), Swansea City (Swans), Tottenham Hotspurs (Spurs/Lilywhites), West Bromwich Albion (Baggies/Throstles), Wigan Athletic (Latics) and Wolverhampton Wanderers (Wolves/Dogs).

Let us know what you think of them because your feedback, good or bad, is very valuable to us. We will be very responsive to your feedback because we want to give you the Myteamshirts that you would like to be seen wearing. For example, is the price right? Do you like the design? Would you wear it? Would you play in it???

Please be aware that these shirts are NOT meant to be copies, because we do not believe in counterfeit goods, but they are influenced by the team strips from the Premier League. How close does your Miteamshirt have to be to the your existing club shirt? Please bear in mind that our shirts at Miteamshirts are actually designed as three shirts in one with a Home Strip, Away Strip and an International shirt (of your choice if required) on the inside.

When you decide to purchase one of our football shirts you will have your own individual team shirt that fans of your club and other clubs are still going to recognise. Your team colours will stand out from the crowd and be instantly recogniseable. You wont find any team badges or sponsors logos on our football shirts, due to the minefield which is the copyright and trademarks arena, UNLESS, of course, you personally commission us to supply you with them for your own personal use. Anyhow, we think that our shirts look great without all the paraphernalia and still would be instantly recognisable to any dedicated football fan!

Miteamshirts are not intended to be replacements to the official club shirts, but an alternative, that offers extremely good value for money considering the difficult financial times we are all in. It’s not a question of loyalties, but what will be instantly noticeable is a complete variation from the original shirt designs and you can be one of the first to own one of these amazing three-in-one team shirts.
