England take on the formidable Spain in a friendly at Wembley tomorrow.

David Haye Retires

Loudmouthed boxer David Haye has today announced his retirement from the sport. The former WBA Heavyweight Champion had been expected to release the news, with reports earlier in the week that Haye had not renewed his license.

Man of Steel to be Crowned



The 2011 Man of Steel will be awarded to a rugby league star tonight.



Although rugby players are not renowned for taking too much care over their appearance, tonight will be an exception at the glitzy awards bash. This rugby ball tie bar would certainly go down well, available at Tiesplanet.com.

Ties Planet League of Ties - 1st



With strong financial backing, Manchester City are likely to feature at the top of the table for the forseeable future. This Plain Light Blue Satin Tie is fit for Champions, yet costs just £7.99 at Tiesplanet.com.

Ties Planet League of Ties - 2nd



Manchester United are one of the few teams who would be disappointed with 2nd place. To ease that disappointment, they have a great tie!

Thursday, 25 August 2011

Ties Planet League of Ties - 3rd



A tie even Roman would be happy with. Unlike 3rd place, which is where we have Chelsea.

Wednesday, 24 August 2011

Ties Planet League of Ties - 4th



You'll Never Walk Alone if you wear one of these ties. Simple yet effective. Liverpool will be hoping for much of the same from their season.

Ties Planet League of Ties - 5th



Its lucky for Spurs when the year ends in one, as Chas and Dave once sang. This tie shows close rivalry with North London rivals Arsenal, being the same design in very different colours.

Ties Planet League of Ties - 6th



Given the current turmoil, we have put Arsenal in 6th. The club still has class though, as this Red & White Polka Dot Silk Tie shows.

Thursday, 18 August 2011

Ties Planet League of Ties - 11th




This White and Black Polka Dot Silk Tie is very fitting for Fulham. In fact we would say it is our 'Match of the Day'.

Ties Planet League of Ties - 12th



West Bromich Albion would no doubt be happy with 12th position, as well as this tie.

Ties Planet League of Ties - 13th



It could be a sticky season for the toffees, with a distinct lack of new talent being added over the summer. Everton fans will love this Plain Royal Blue Satin Tie.

Ties Planet League of Ties - 14th



The Toon Army might not be too happy with our guess that Newcastle United will come in 14th. However, they would be as "pleased as punch", as Joey Barton might put it, with this Black and White Striped Thin Tie.

Ties Planet League of Ties - 15th



Our next selecton is Wolverhampton Wanderers, represented by this fine plain tie which closely matches the traditional home shirts.
