TBT: Il Fenomeno

Sunday, July 12, 1998 is a night I have always longed to forget in a hurry. But then again there’s that thing with days or nights shrouded in infamy – they linger; they just don’t go away. And mind you I haven’t checked the calendar app to confirm that indeed it is...

Masaibu ya Kushabikia Stars

Kwanza kabisa, ningependa kuwaomba radhi enyi wasomaji wetu tunaowaenzi na kuwathamini si haba. Kwa kawaida mitungo yote kwenye The Dug Out huwa imeandikwa kwa lugha ya Kimombo, lakini kwa vile leo twagusia masaibu ya timu yetu ya taifa, tutajaribu kuswahilisha hisia...

Fabian and Fridah’s Picks – MW30

Norwich City v Manchester City Last Five Meetings: W0, D2, L3 Fabian Says: Needless to say this is a must-win for both sides. For City, a win would catapult them to third above Arsenal while Norwich need the three points to get their heads above the drop zone and even...

FPL GW30 Preview

The Premier League resumes tomorrow albeit a severely curtailed one gameswise due to other teams’ involvement in the FA Cup Quarter Finals. But we still got you covered. Nay, Sue has got you covered. She dissects GW30 so brilliantly it’s a wonder she...

It’s Thursday and apart from it being just a day to ‘Thank God It’s Friday’, there’s a phenomenon that takes over the world of social media. Yes, it is Throwback Thursday or as popularly known, TBT. Today I woke up to that and boy was it epic! My earlier tweets (about...
