    Kelyn Rowe scored twice and the New England Revolution beat the San Jose Earthquakes 2-1 on Saturday in steady snow and hail for their first victory of the season. New England (1-2-1) got its first goal of the season in the 21st minute. A turnover created a chance for Rowe, whose blast from 17 yards deflected off the head of defender Shaun Francis, who committed the original turnover. Chris Tierney's left-footed free kick was headed by a diving Darrius Barnes to Rowe and he buried it past David Bingham, who could only get a hand on it.

  • Harry Kane's stunning season continues and Spurs must back him up

    28 Mar 2015 | 7:49 am
    England head coach Roy Hodgson says he's delighted for Harry Kane after the Tottenham striker scored on his England debut against Lithuania. On Friday night, "Roy of the Rovers" was at it again. Just 78 seconds into his England debut against Lithuania on Friday night, Harry Kane scored his first international goal with a far-post header. Almost exactly a week earlier, the Spurs striker had scored his first Premier League hat trick in the 4-3 home win against Leicester. At times like this, the game must feel ridiculous for him. Tottenham have been a three-man band all season.

    One interesting tidbit of information came out of yesterday’s press conference in Minnesota. While all along we know that Atlanta, LAFC and Minnesota United FC are the next three clubs into MLS, the order may not be as cut and dry as it has always appeared. According to MLSSoccer.com, Atlanta is the only definite team for 2017 and the other two sides could swap places depending on how construction of their new stadiums go. Atlanta’s expansion team will begin play at the facility they’ll share with the NFL’s Atlanta Falcons in 2017, and Garber said on Wednesday that the league will…

    Since my last epistle Woolwich have visited something of a happy hunting ground, the Sports Direct Big Fat Lad Howay Man Toon Time St. James Park Comedy Arena. Do you know the place? The one with the famous atmosphere that mysteriously seems to evaporate when the buggers go a goal down, or even without a goal? There’s nothing like the atmosphere at St. James’s, a fat man with OOR MAM tattooed on his distended belly will tell you. Well that’s odd, because having been there, in the somewhat secluded upper arse end of the stadium where they deposit the away chaps, it sounds very much like…
  • Akpom joins Forest on loan: Walcott muddies the waters

    It’s Friday, it’s 5.54am and it’s the Interlull. Not a good combination for anything, unless you’re into being up really early during a particularly tedious time of the season. Those of you seeking excitement will have to look elsewhere this morning because we haven’t even loaned out a youth team player that most people haven’t heard of or anything. We have, however, sent Chuba Akpom on loan until the end of the season to Nottingham Forest. It’s an interesting move for both parties. Akpom, while too good for youth/reserve team football isn’t yet…

    This Sunday, the Emirates Stadium will again host international football as Gabriel’s Brazil square up to Alexis Sanchez’s Chile. Arsenal’s new stadium has a recent history of entertaining the Seleção, whose friendly games have become something of a global roadshow. But Arsenal have provided the canvas for international football prior to the new stadium and its significant mortgage. Highbury was the venue of an international match or two. None more famous than a 1934 friendly between England and Italy, which has since been dubbed ‘The Battle of Highbury.’ The match was significant…

    I’m not paying much attention to what’s happening in the Interlull other than to keep an eye out for stories about our players being smooshed and bashed and beflobbled by bad tackles and/or muscle strains. However, it’s hard to escape the news that Nicklas Bendtner scored a hat-trick last night because my Twitter timeline was full of people saying ‘Jesus, Bendtner scored a hat-trick!’. Denmark beat the USA 3-2 last night and TGSTEL got all the goals. Of course this is of no relevance to us because he’s not an Arsenal player anymore so it just shows you the…

  • Harry Kane is England’s savior and should be treated as an infallible god

    Brooks Peck
    27 Mar 2015 | 9:44 pm
    Like some sort of violent tropical storm, 21-year-old Harry Kane is an unstoppable force of nature that is superior to humanity in every way. If his 29 goals in 43 appearances for Spurs this season left anyone unconvinced, Kane proved his omnipotence by scoring just 80 seconds into his England debut. Many fans and pundits wanted Kane to start England’s Euro 2016 qualifier against Lithuania, but Roy Hodgson opted to go with Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck up front. This proved to be no big deal for Kane. Here’s how their pre-match conversation probably went: Hodgson: Wayne and Danny…
  • Moldova keeper blasts clearance off Zlatan’s head for a goal

    Brooks Peck
    27 Mar 2015 | 2:05 pm
    Such is the power of Zlatan Ibrahimovic that he can suck the ball towards his own head and score without even trying. He demonstrated this skill in Sweden’s match against Moldova, when the opposing keeper attempted a simple clearance but blasted the ball directly into Zlatan’s head instead, causing it it to ricochet back into his own net. This gave Sweden a 1-0 lead in the 46th minute and proves that Zlatan is powerful enough to make you concede goals to him without even moving. Zlatan later fired a laser beam of a penalty into the top corner to give Sweden a 2-0 win.

The Russian keeper was carted off and the match was suspended. Here’s a view from the stands: About 40 minutes, with the flare thrower reportedly arrested and Akinfeev still receiving treatment, the match resumed with the new goal of making it a full minute without a player getting hit by a flare. A second crowd disturbance in the 67th minute prompted the match to be abandoned.

But for professionals these days, all they really need is a paycheck, which has been hard to come by in Peru. In South America, many clubs have a large dependency on the Copa Libertadores tournament, which is a cash cow for South American teams.

The red player must try and dribble his opponent and stop the ball in between the cones.

After a five-month identity crisis followed by almost three months of solid progress, Liverpool’s best performance of the post-Luis Suarez era finally yielded a statement result.

    When Fenway Sports Group first took over Liverpool “Moneyball” was the buzzword. The new owners, inspired by Oakland Athletics ability to compete despite financial disadvantage had transformed the Boston Red Sox and lifted the “Curse of the Bambino” in 2004, winning their first ‘World’ Championship in 86 years. The moneyball approach was about using detailed statistical analysis to find value in players that other teams had overlooked. Apparently, somewhere along the journey across the Atlantic the term “Moneyball” came to mean wasting money on…

    Liverpool are in a bad place right now and the pressure is mounting on Brendan Rodgers. The 3-1 defeat against Crystal Palace was the lowest point in a poor opening to the season and there is a growing sense among some supporters that Brendan Rodgers is not cut out for the job.  The Liverpool manager has made some poor decisions but he has earned the right to turn this ship around. For a long time there has been a sentiment among the wider football public that Rodgers is a charlatan. He is full of grand quotes but lacks any real substance to back up his words, they say.

  • Getting vertical: How vertical passing can improve Liverpool

    Jeremy Farrell
    7 Nov 2014 | 7:53 pm
    Last season Liverpool tore their opponents apart on the counter attack. Luis Suárez, Daniel Sturridge and Raheem Sterling where the most feared attacking trio in the league. A hallmark of Liverpool’s play  was fast transitions and incisive vertical passing. This season, along with a formation change and different players their game is much slower and their passing is much more predictable and lateral. What is a vertical pass? Vertical passing means a forward or backward pass (from goal to goal) as opposed to a horizontal pass (from touchline to touchline). Vertical…

    Out of a raft of exciting young Portuguese footballers coming through the ranks, Braga forward Rafael Silva is one who is considerably ahead of what can be considered a normal learning curve. Still only 21 years old, Rafa, as he is known, has accumulated 64 appearances in Portugal’s top flight, earned himself three caps for the full national team and was the youngest member of the Seleção squad Paulo Bento took to Brazil last summer. Possessor of quick feet, an inventive passing range and a clinical finisher, Rafa is equally comfortable playing on either flank or as an attacking…

    So disheartening is the course of modern football that a player Bayer Leverkusen signed last summer on a 5-year contract is already subject of rumours linking him with a move away from the club. Bayer and manager Roger Schmidt must be entitled to wonder what the point of it all is if the progress they have made this season is to be undermined almost immediately by the departure of one of their best players. Hakan Calhanoglu is indeed one of Bayer’s best players and with the midfielder apparently stalling on signing a new deal, rumours have started to circulate over a move to Arsenal. A…

    Newcastle United have had their moments in the sun, but this season has yet again been topsy-turvy for the Toon Army. Who should remain and who should suffer the chop at the end of the campaign?    Goalkeepers This is arguably the easiest part of the squad to analyse. Tim Krul should be kept. The Dutchman is arguably in the top 7 category of best keepers in the league. Rob Elliot is a 50-50 option. The ex-Charlton man should be allowed to leave when Karl Darlow comes in as backup to Krul. Elliot has had an average time at the club and any decent offer should be accepted with a mutual…

The Rossoneri managed to get him earlier than expected. He was supposed to arrive in the summer. One would think that they accelerated the move because they needed him right away. But he has only played 10 minutes of competitive football, as a substitute in the loss to Lazio in the Coppa Italia.

An Arsene Wenger led side has not been able in recent times to do very well against a Manchester United team even when depleted.

From Aguero to Tevez via Gonzalo Higuaín, not least forgetting the world’s best player Lionel Messi.

Louis van Gaal and his men showed their mettle against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday with a 3-0 thumping, but that form won’t last for long because the team still lacks an identity.

    On a night made memorable by Harry Kane’s goal-scoring, headline-grabbing debut, no player subtlety imposed his will on the match better than Michael Carrick. Kane gets the plaudits for the goals and their glamour. Look up Kane’s name on the internet, and Google will give you more than five times the results than for Carrick, more than a decade Kane’s senior. Carrick, on the other hand, is more naturally distant from the spotlight, both on the pitch and off: he’s only scored seventeen goals in two-hundred-and-sixty-one matches for Manchester United, and is yet to score a competitive…

    For so long, Major League Soccer was a pitifully small league for a country the size of the U.S. — just nine years ago, it hosted only ten teams across fifty states. The league was desperate for new owners and expansion teams, and the objective MLS always set for itself was twenty-four teams — specifically, by 2020 — though reaching twenty teams to match major European leagues was its first big benchmark. Now for the first time, this season MLS has twenty teams (fittingly, in its twentieth season). In 1998, the league marked its first expansion, adding the Chicago Fire and the…

It’s been almost five years since Klinsmann took over, and many are still questioning the impact his revolution has had on the pitch. The US struggled to string together passes today and looked altogether disjointed; indeed, Klinsmann has returned to the drawing board, experimenting with formations and players. While friendlies such as tonight’s are conducive to experimentation, it is clear that Klinsmann…

Arsenal are interested in the Czech Republic international, as are Liverpool – who would be left with an important decision to make following the resurgence in form of Simon Mignolet since the turn of the year. The newspaper reported that the stopper has been frustrated by his lack of first team action. “I’m used to playing…

    Chelsea starlet Nathan Ake has joined Championship club Reading on a month long loan deal. The Dutch player arrived from his native country in 2010 after leaving Feyenoord, and has made 11 first team appearances for the Blues. Jose Mourinho has now given the green light for him to join the Royals in order to get more regular first team football. For Chelsea employee Steve Clarke is the manager there, and already has another Blues youngster on his books – Nathaniel Chalobah.

    Spanish sources claim that on-loan Mexican striker Javier Hernandez is now surplus to requirements at both Manchester United and Real Madrid, with his future for next season being decided. West Ham are the favourites to sign Hernandez with Tottenham, Everton and Stoke also keen to sign the Mexican international. These clubs would have to pay a reported £8 million for Hernandez’s services, which would be a bargain, considering his prolific goalscoring record. Hernandez is rarely used by Carlo Ancelotti, but despite his lack of playing time, Hernandez has scored three goals with a…

    Manchester City could pay £100 million for Liverpool young starlet Raheem Sterling in the summer, with Manuel Pellegrini looking to bolster his Manchester City team. Sterling has emerged as one of Liverpool’s latest youth players to be making a name for himself on an international scale with the likes of Real Madrid being linked with the 19 year old in the past. There have been some contract disputes with the Anfield player with his future looking in doubt depending on how they do in the league. Will the Reds be able to cash out on one of their top players at the end of the season if he…

    To summarize it all: Our first half performance was poor and below par. Our second half was marred by some poor refereeing decision. Unfortunately, our 13-match unbeaten streak is over and the result suddenly seems to have put a fullstop to the optimism that the team’s amazing run had given us for over three months. Fans and pundits alike, have now seriously begun to question whether Liverpool can make it into the Champions League, with Liverpool now 5 points behind in the league with only eight games to go. But, let’s not give up the hope just yet, because if we play in the…

    It’s that time of the season again. We go up against what may possibly be our biggest and most fierce rivals: Manchester United. At least, they are now! I’d like to talk not just about the current day, but also about the way it was, in many years past. It wasn’t always this way, you know. Liverpool have been around since 1892 of course and the history of our club has changed in some interesting ways over the decades. John Houlding originally created this club to be a direct rival to Everton… after Everton had stopped paying the rent at Anfield (yes, I said it……

    Liverpool got the win they needed quite badly against Swansea. Other Premier League fixtures that had happened on the 15th (Sunday) didn’t exactly go as we had wanted. Manchester United went up against Tottenham Hotspurs who had the opportunity to take three points off them and leave Liverpool with an opportunity to take 4th place from them – even before we have our match against them on March 22nd. However Tottenham didn’t look like they ever wanted to win that game, right from the first whistle of the game. They had allowed United to have scored three times in the first…

    8 Mar 2015 | 4:28 pm
    Times have certainly changed for Louis Van Gaal. Whilst few seem unhappy with the clubs league position or the change in direction under his leadership, he now spends much of his press conferences defending his style of play. Certainly the defence has been far from solid for most of the season, but it’s the tinkering with a winning team that seems to draw many critics. Furthermore, his recent long ball tactics were heavily questioned against Sam Allardyce’s West Ham (of all teams). What was unusual was Van Gaal’s response when, in a press conference, he pulled out a sheet of statistics…

    For the first time Swansea completed a league double over the Red Devils with a 2-1 win at the Liberty Stadium. To make matters worse for United fans Van Persie left the stadium on crutches and they will no doubt be waiting with bated breath to see how long he will be out of the game. Much is being made of the Swans win specifically with regard to United’s poor defensive showing, however it is important to not that this is only the second time Manchester United have lost in twenty games. It was way back in November I was last lamenting a United loss. As for this game, it was the exciting…

    So, the Red Devils can beat the best in the Premiership (well almost) and yet a mid-table, league two side can hold them to a goalless draw? What’s all that about? With Bradford pulling off perhaps the biggest cup upset in recent years with a dramatic come back to beat Chelsea 4 -2, fans of the Red Devils will hope to avoid embarrassment at the hands of Cambridge United. Jose Mourinho famously claimed it would be a ‘disgrace’ if his highly paid, world beaters were beaten by the lower league side.

    Radamel Falcao has been the subject of many newspaper headlines in the past few weeks. The forward cost a staggering £6million for a season long loan from Monaco and his future has been uncertain at best, with reports allegedly emanating from Old Trafford that he may already be on his way out. The Colombian striker reportedly earns £265,000 a week but with a return of just 3 goals in 13 appearances questions are going to be asked about his value for money. However, if United want to sign Falcao on a permanent basis they have until May to activate the £40m buy-out clause in his contract.

    To quote Marc Higginson of the BBC: “Southampton picked up their first league victory over Manchester United at Old Trafford in 27 years to move up to third in the Premier League.” What shocks me more about that quote is not the fact that this was the Saints first victory over United at Old Trafford for 27 years but rather that after Christmas United find themselves looking up at the Saints who are now in third place. What’s worse is that Southampton played well and deserved the win. Hardworking, disciplined and playing with absolutely no fear at Old Trafford the visitors were well…

    With Spurs conceding the most goals out of all the top 10 teams in the Premier League just what is going wrong in the back four?

Competition for places Spurs back four could essentially pick itself at the moment. Walker, Eric Dier, Vertonghen and Danny Rose are the clear first choice back four. Walker has no real competition at right back as new signing Deandre Yedlin has yet to make an appearance, also Vlad Chiriches is not even a right back.
