Des Kelly: Final column for Sportsmail

Sat, 01 Jun 2013 12:07:55 +0100

It's time to bid you a fond farewell. This is my final column for Sportsmail. It has been an absolute privilege and an honour to be allowed to sound off on this page without compromise. Spectacular: The London Olympics went off with a bang last year as the country came together to celebrate

Des Kelly: When it came to the most important tick of his career clock, Sir Alex bowed out at the perfect moment

Sat, 11 May 2013 01:04:59 +0100

The manner of his departure is surely the greatest triumph of Sir Alex Ferguson's entire career. Throughout his life he was known for timing football matches with his unique personal chronograph which ran on GMT - Glaswegian Manager Time. Time for change: Sir Alex Ferguson has got it spot on once again when it comes to the ticking of his clock

Drugs cover-up makes my blood boil - Des Kelly

Fri, 03 May 2013 23:37:32 +0100

The war against drugs in sport is never-ending and the stakes are higher than ever. Unfortunately many of the participants are, too. We have seen it in athletics, cycling and now horseracing. Busted: Doctor Eufemiano Fuentes was handed a suspended prison sentence

Luis Suarez a victim? No that is garbage: DES KELLY

Sat, 27 Apr 2013 09:53:09 +0100

I could have predicted an eight to 12-game sanction would follow his attempt to sample some Branislav tartare before David Cameron weighed in. Luis Suarez

London Marathon must be defiant in face of Boston bombings - Des Kelly

Sat, 20 Apr 2013 02:50:54 +0100

There will be runners shifting anxiously from one foot to another under London’s clouds, feeling the flutter of a few more butterflies in the stomach than usual tomorrow. Not that they will admit it. Defiant: Around 37,000 people will pound the streets of London on Sunday

FA Cup semi-finals at Wembley are another example of fans coming second: DES KELLY

Sat, 13 Apr 2013 11:36:45 +0100

There will be swathes of empty seats at Wembley Stadium today, thousands of them scattered around a monolithic stadium that cost £800million to construct. Empty stadium

Is Paolo Di Canio up to the job - Des Kelly

Fri, 05 Apr 2013 23:16:12 +0100

In all the debate about whether he is an outright fascist or a misunderstood eccentric, one significant question appears to have been lost in the pseudo-political fog. Is Paolo Di Canio any good at his job? PAOLO DI CANIO ARTWORK FOR DES KELLY

Evidence against England fans being racist is subtle - Des Kelly

Fri, 29 Mar 2013 23:02:37 +0000

The big question, of course, is not whether it is tasteful — it isn’t — but whether the chant amounts to a ‘race hate crime’. It would be easy to argue the Ferdinands are merely unpopular. Accused: England fans have been reported for chants (no suggestion that those pictured were singing)

West Ham Olympic Stadium where's my share? Des Kelly

Sat, 23 Mar 2013 09:29:42 +0000

British taxpayers have just handed a Premier League football club a stadium worth half a billion pounds which, in these austere times, you might think is charity enough. New home: An artist's impression of how the Olympic Stadium will look when West Ham move in

Premier League clubs doomed in Europe, until next time - DES KELLY

Sat, 16 Mar 2013 08:19:46 +0000

English football is in crisis. The statistics are damning. No Premier League side has won the Champions League in a dismal run of failure stretching back to… er, what is it now? Oh, yes — 10 whole months. Chelsea

Gareth Bale is a diver... stop the excuses! Why only call Luis Suarez a cheat? - DES KELLY

Sat, 09 Mar 2013 02:06:26 +0000

The moment the supremely accomplished British footballer Gareth Bale falls over an imaginary leg during a match, every euphemism in the lexicon of Footballspeak is dutifully offered up in an attempt to excuse his deeds. No San Siro return: Bale's booking rules him out of next week's second leg

Des Kelly: Rafa Benitez rant - let's see if John Terry can do any better

Sat, 02 Mar 2013 17:16:46 +0000

Chelsea supporters can boo as loudly as they like on Saturday — they’ve paid their money after all. But the first thing to say is that pretty much everything Rafa Benitez said was right. Mr Chelsea: Some fans want to see captain John Terry in a player-manager tole

Des Kelly: Swansea could lose Michael Laudrup, but Huw Jenkins should cope

Fri, 22 Feb 2013 23:21:11 +0000

Michael Laudrup has been touted as the next boss of a number of major European clubs. If he wins the Capital One Cup, he might leave Swansea, but chairman Huw Jenkins has the ideal infrastructure to cope. Charismatic: Swansea manager Michael Laudrup could be persuaded to leave the Libert Stadium

Cristiano Ronaldo proves it's tame in Spain with Real Madrid - DES KELLY

Sat, 16 Feb 2013 01:39:01 +0000

The consensus appears to be that the rival leagues across Europe in Spain and Germany are somehow better than the Premier League, a view that sounds seductive enough. But is it actually true? Simpler: Cristiano Ronaldo is the complete player, but he would have struggled to score 20 hat-tricks in England

If it wasn't for my local dog-fighting league, I don't know how I'd get my fix of clean, competitive sport - Des Kelly

Sat, 09 Feb 2013 14:18:01 +0000

Please note, in this week’s newspaper there are a few references to actual sport. Should you wish to read genuine sporting information I advise you to confine yourself to these sections and skip through the rest. Debrecen

David Beckham's PSG salary donation was a PR stunt - Des Kelly

Fri, 01 Feb 2013 23:32:26 +0000

David Beckham sat in front of a battery of camera lenses and said his entire salary at Paris Saint-Germain would go to a local children’s charity. What a noble gesture. Beck and forth: Beckham missed the game to sharpen up his fitness

Referees and linesmen are being cheated and treated badly by the FA - Des Kelly

Sat, 19 Jan 2013 10:45:30 +0000

DES KELLY: A linesman is dropped for daring to ask a footballer to show some common courtesy to fans. A top referee is then undermined because he issued a debatable red card. It is no way to mark 150 years Seeing red: Vincent Kompany was sent off by Mike Dean for a tackle on Jack Wilshere

Oprah Winfrey Lance Armstrong interview - Des Kelly

Sat, 12 Jan 2013 09:31:39 +0000

Oprah does not cross examine, she coos, she cajoles, she mothers, she hugs. Armstrong's appearance on her show is utterly incongruous. It's like Jimmy Savile being interrogated Holly Willoughby on This Morning. Lance Armstrong

Mario Balotelli needs an exorcist - Des Kelly

Fri, 04 Jan 2013 23:24:04 +0000

Mario Balotelli's antics have undeniably been a test of faith for Roberto Mancini. Maybe the Manchester City manager realises by now he is never going to cast out Balotelli’s demons. Man City manager Roberto Mancini and Mario Balotelli came to blows
