MOYES OUT

It has finally all come to an end – David Moyes’ disastrous spell as Manchester United’s manager is over. And we are pretty sure that most United fans are jumping for joy over the announcement.

While it is not that big of a surprise – considering Moyes’ poor performance – the news of Moyes’ sacking has still managed to grab international headlines. The official announcement was made this morning by the club with various press releases and on social media.

Moyes’ time at United was surely one of dread for all United fans. With the club performing the worst they have ever performed in decades, United fans were left heartbroken after almost every match.

The final nail in the coffin, however, was Sunday’s disgustingly poor performance against Moyes’ ex-club, Everton, at home at Old Trafford. The Red Devils had a dismal game and lost 2 – 0 to the Everton – at home nonetheless.

However, it wasn’t only Sunday’s performance that assured Moyes’ sacking. In his short, 10-moth history at United, Moyes managed to break countless records – and by that we mean bad records.  (more…)

Real Madrid have won the Copa Del Rey in an epic final that had it’s own star of the show – Real Madrid new signing and all round soccer superstar, Gareth Bale.

With the score tied at 1 -1, fans were on the edge of their seats to see if either Barcelona or Real Madrid would walk away with the title. The arch rivals (obviously) both put on an amazing performance, and it would be tough to tell who would be crowned winners at the end of the day. (more…)

BUBBA WATSON

American golfer Bubba Watson has claimed his second Masters title on Sunday, and it seems as though his fans almost enjoyed his win more than the man himself.

Although Watson has been a pro golfer since 2003, it wasn’t until he burst onto the scene in 201o that Bubba Watson became a household name.

Watson claimed his first Masters title two years ago in 2012. He narrowly beat out our own South African star, Louis Oosthuizen, to claim his very first green jacket. Since then, Watson has only elevated his level of play and is now considered by many as one of the greats. (more…)
