    By Brian Homewood ZURICH (Reuters) - Soccer's governing body FIFA called the arrest of six of its leading officials on bribery charges a "difficult moment" but said it would not derail President Sepp Blatter's bid to win a fifth term in an election on Friday.

    blogger@arseblog.com (Arseblogger)
    26 May 2015 | 6:43 am
    Dubbed ‘Tactics Tim’ by the press, there is a fair amount of debate around the managerial talents of Tim Sherwood. It strikes me that his ‘give it a right good go’ tactical template is a very death or glory tenet. However, after some of the most turgid football in Premier League memory under Alex McLeish and Paul Lambert, Sherwood’s up and at ‘em approach has at least energised a club that seemed to be stuck in an almighty rut. Villa have some threatening attacking players who will cause Arsene Wenger and Arsenal fans some sleepless nights ahead of Saturday. But how are Villa fans…

    I had the oddest dream this morning that my office was in the house next door and I had to do some really early morning work. I woke up one of the girls who lives there and she said, quite grumpily, ‘Well, I suppose I’d better go and do the make-up for the team’. I knew this to mean that she was going to do the Arsenal team’s make-up before the FA Cup final photo shoot, so she picked up a large tin of white emulsion, a battered old paintbrush and stormed out the door. Then I discovered I was carrying a bag full of baby owls, so I left them there and went back home…

    Hello. I am FIFA director of communications Walter de Gregorio and I am here to tell you that I am very tired and everything is super cool. Yes, the United States Department of Justice and Swiss officials are conducting two separate, but coordinated investigations that resulted in early morning raids which saw FIFA officials being taken from their luxury hotel rooms in Zurich and processed for extradition while documents related to the allocation of the 2018 and 2022 World Cups were seized at FIFA headquarters, but this is all good for FIFA.

So Jose Mourinho decided to go a different route with his speech at Chelsea’s awards event by roasting the teams that fell short of his side’s title winning standard. “I have for you a fiction story,” Mourinho told the crowd, as he turned on his proverbial flame thrower and a picture of an empty pitch was shown on the room’s big screens. “This is a football pitch with two goals, one ball, but there is one team that would like to play without…

    In their penultimate Serie A fixture of the season, second-place Roma beat third-place Lazio 2-1 in a typically hateful Rome derby to clinch a place in the Champions League group stage. Outside the stadium in the run up to the match, two Roma fans were reportedly stabbed by Lazio ultras, further fueling tensions between the two clubs that the game itself only added to. Juan Manuel Iturbe put Roma up 1-0 in the 73rd minute, then Filip Djordjevic equalized for Lazio in the 81st minute and Roma defender Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa scored the winner in the 85th. This provided several levels of delight…

A far cry from the supremely bland autobiographies usually put out by active footballers, Zlatan’s book was even short listed for a prestigious Swedish literary award. But as the book’s ghostwriter now admits, though the sentiment was true, the headline-making quotes were his own creation.

The Madrid based media have all but written off Casillas’ chances of returning to the Bernabeu next season. But the team captain has continually stated that he plans to remain at the club – where he has spent the past 25 years – until his contract runs out in June 2016.

    Liverpool have today announced on their official website that defensive duo Kolo Toure and Andre Wisdom have signed contract extensions to their current deals. The 34-year-old Ivory Coast-born Toure started just seven Premier League games this season but is seen as a reliable back-up option in centre defence. Having signed on a free from Manchester City in 2013, Toure quickly became a fans’ favourite with a string of strong performances. Unfortunately, his form soon dipped along with that of his defensive colleagues as the Reds conceded a massive 98 league goals in the past two campaigns.

The two-goal hero of his nation’s win over England was seen on camera, allegedly taking a bite on Chiellini’s left shoulder. He then had the nerve to go down claiming some sort of tooth injury had been inflicted by the Juventus centre-back. Suarez previously served a 10-match ban for biting…

    At 35 and 36 respectively, Xavi and Pirlo are no spring chickens but have proven that age is but a number and continue to be the heart of their team. Xavi and Pirlo are cut from the same footballing cloth. Both are fanatics of the ball and they share a supernatural ability to pass the ball wherever they like. A simple five yard pass? No problem. An eye of the needle ball past three defenders? No problem. A 40 yard lobbed pass that lands directly at your teammates feet? No problem. Andrea Pirlo has always had that bit of flair about him. While Xavi grew up as an unassuming kid into a modest…

    If anything could act as a metaphorical emergency brake to Liverpool’s steam train, it would definitely have been Liverpool’s 1-2 loss to Man United last week. I honestly think its one of the first times Liverpool have been properly played out of the ball park in a very long time. But at least there’s more to learn from the losses than from the wins. First of all, I absolutely don’t think that we can use that game as evidence as to why Steven Gerrard shouldn’t be in the team from now to the end of the season. Its quite simply unfair. Rash, foolish? Definitely.

    6 May 2015 | 1:30 pm
    Liverpool are in the hunt for Dutch striker Memphis Depay, the free-scoring forward was in the Manchester area last week. While Depay is understood to have travelled to England he did not hold talks with United – as he was instead given permission by PSV to enter into discussions with Liverpool. Similarly, when a member of Depay’s team of representatives posted a picture of the Red Devils' AON training centre on Twitter recently, it was taken as a further hint that a move to Old Trafford is in place, but again it is understood that the agent was conducting other business…

  • WHO SHOULD START V NEWCASTLE: MORENO OR ENRIQUE?

    9 Apr 2015 | 4:46 pm
    Liverpool face Newcastle United at Anfield next Monday after their successful victory over Blackburn Rovers in the FA Cup this week. A victory is a must against John Carver's Geordies to keep up the pressure on the four sides above us and also to keep breathing space between ourselves, Spurs and Southampton in the dreaded Europa League placings. I believe a club gets an extra £1 million for every higher a league spot they get so that's also worth bearing in mind. Liverpool put in a decent display at Ewood Park to beat Tony Boyer's Blackburn. This was especially more pleasing given…

    12 years have passed since Florentino Perez cited exhaustion as his reason for severing ties with Vincent Del Bosque, just a day after the curtain fell on the title winning campaign of 2002-03. 10 managers have since sat in the dugout of the Santiago Bernabeu and they have now all been sacked or eased out, Carlo Ancelotti completing a full house after being shown the door in similar fashion to Del Bosque, a day after the most recent La Liga season drew to a close.

When you exert yourself physically for a long period of time, you lose water, largely in the form of sweat.  You…

The original rags to riches story in Roy Hodgson’s England era, the striker who came from Macclesfield, Stockport County and Rochdale and completed his fairy-tale rise with a goal on his England debut against Scotland. That story has now been raised by Jamie Vardy, of Stocksbridge Park Steels as recently as 2007 and who did not play league football until 2012.

    ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti discusses the continued rumours that AC Milan face a possible takeover. It has been another struggle for AC Milan this year and their mid-table finish will signify another failure for an inexperienced coach in Filippo Inzaghi. While management must take a share of the blame along with the coaching staff, so too do the players who have not played to their potential and have contributed to the mess that the Rossoneri have found themselves in at times this year. Some may have contributed more than others but as a collective, they have been bitterly disappointing with…

Anyway, throughout the session I decided to take one child away from the group and practice their passing technique. We did 20 passes. 10 2-touch and 10 one-touch passes. They all did a great job and really focused on the skill at hand. Plus they enjoyed it and wanted to do it again. Which leads me into the topic of private coaching. I do private lessons. I think they’re helpful for the kids. I…

The 32-year-old keeper looks set to leave Stamford Bridge at the moment, having lost his place in the starting eleven to Belgian international Thibaut Courtois. In March, Cech had himself stated, “I don’t know what the club’s idea will be. It looks like it works well with me and Thibaut as a duo.” “But that can work for one season only. I don’t want another one like this.” The Czech Republic…

    Back in mid-December, when Brendan Rodgers was being pressed on whether Brad Jones had emerged as his first-choice goalkeeper on the back of some less than inspiring showings from Simon Mignolet, the Anfield exit door appeared to be swinging open in front of the latter. “I said to Simon it was for an indefinite period,” said Rodgers when asked how long his £9 million Belgian shot-stopper should expect to remain on the sidelines. As fate would have it, Mignolet would be drafted back into the fold before the end of the month, with an unfortunate injury suffered by Jones at Burnley on…

    So you think you’re a good footballer? You’ve played with multiple teams and worked your way through all levels and age groups.  Now you see yourself as a competent 11-a-side player. Maybe you’re a battering ram of a defender, a wicked little winger or a Hollywood striker. Either way, you’re good enough on an 11-a-side pitch so how hard can playing 5-a-side be?  It’s just a kickabout in the end right? WRONG To play 5-a-side football or Futsal at a decent level you need to be a special kind of player.  That stuff you learnt on the training pitch is all well and good but many of…

  • Daily Mail reporter so so wrong

    Clive Elliott
    27 May 2015 | 4:30 am
    The Daily Mail have once again shown their limitations by exposing themselves as narrow minded. It appears as far as they are concerned the only transfers that show ambition are big money moves, if you don't splash cash you are not ambitious.That just demonstrates a total lack of understanding of football. Ambition can be found in many forms, for Tottenham ambition is building a young squad who will stay and improve together over the next few years because of the new stadium being built. Buying a money mercenary who may want a move in a year or two is of questionable long term benefit,…

    Slaven Bilic during the 1996/1997 season with West Ham. Slaven Bilic will leave Beşiktaş at the end of the season, raising his odds to 4/1 to become the next manager for West Ham. Rafa Benitez and Steve McClaren are ahead of Bilic, 100/30 and 7/2, respectively. However, with Benitez in prime position to take over Carlo Ancelotti’s job at Real Madrid, and McClaren poised to head to Newcastle United, it appears to be Bilic leading the race to East London. As a result, here is an introduction to the soon-to-be-ex Beşiktaş manager Slaven Bilic, the most interesting man in the world.

    Arsenal have boasted some of the finest French forwards there have been. Boss Arsene Wenger unsurprisingly seems to hold an affection for strikers from his homeland and more often than not, he is able to mould them into the ‘world-class’ players he envisages them to be. Nicholas Anelka and Thierry Henry are probably the stand-out examples. Now another Frenchman leads the line for Wenger’s side, Olivier Giroud. The 28-year-old though, is of a different breed of attacker to the many others that have graced the lush green pitches of Highbury in the past and now the Emirates.

Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez are both often assigned it as a title, such is their ability to affect matches with their goals, chances and technical prowess in the final third. Having recently faced off against both forwards in the latter stages of the Champions League, one man who knows more than most about their outstanding qualities as attackers is Bayern Munich goalkeeper, Manuel Neuer. The imposing shot-stopper produced two characteristically brave and valiant performances against…

However, given that the Premier League forward is reportedly Brendan Rodgers’ No. 1 target, one question needs to be asked: can he be the man to reignite the fear factor into Liverpool’s attack?

    Alex Morgan
    26 May 2015 | 9:36 pm
    You’ve probably done one of those end-of-season voting polls. These days, it’s pretty hard for any self-respecting football follower to avoid the temptation of the “Team of the Year” and “Player of the Year” rituals. The “Goals of the Season” polls are always good fun; if anything, simply to get a good look back at the best plays of the season. It’s easy enough this year because the winner is obviously Matt Phillips’ long range blast against Crystal Palace. It’s really trivial, especially in a year with such a strike. But the water gets murkier when you get to player…

    The moment the whistle hit Jonas Eriksson’s lips at the Santiago Bernabeu, closing a fantastic, if exhausting night of football at the Santiago Bernabeu, Real Madrid’s history entered yet another new managerial chapter. They might as well have reversed the clock to Manuel Pellegrini’s sacking in 2010, or Juande Ramos the year before that. In fact, most of the seven managerial changes that had taken place since the turn of the century bore resemblances to Ancelotti’s sacking this time around. It’s the same old story again.

For long stretches, it was a tight and balanced tie. Even when Brek Shea was sent off, Orlando City’s defense held out. “Sometimes defense rules the day and I think that’s kind of what happened,” Quakes coach Dominic Kinnear said. “You have to give credit to (Orlando), but I thought in the first half and in the second, obviously with being up a man, I just thought 40 yards and in we were just a little bit…

    15 May 2015 | 11:00 am
    Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has said that striker Diego Costa could play in their game on Monday against West Bromwich Albion. The Spanish international has been out of the side since their fixture against Stoke City six weeks ago, but he could be available to play a part against the Baggies. However, Mourinho confirmed that Oscar, Ramires and Kurt Zouma will all be out for the remained of the season – which should open the door to several youth players who have been on the edges of the Blues squad all season. Ruben Loftus-Cheek came into the starting XI for the first time in his career…
  • All the hard work was done at the beginning of the season…now Jose knows it’s all about the results

    18 Apr 2015 | 12:45 pm
    Yet again we saw a Jose Mourinho masterclass, whether he intended for it to go exactly the way it did is another story. However, he will not care in the slightest. No Diego Costa, no Willian and thrown into the centre of midfield for only the second time in his Chelsea career was young Kurt Zouma. It is fair to say that this Chelsea starting line-up was rather different than any of the sides Mourinho has fielded this season, and it showed. Despite Mourinho claiming it was exactly how he wanted and expected, and I don’t doubt he wanted something extremely similar, his Blues side were…

    With the end of the Premier League campaign only around the corner, it is safe to say that the 2014/15 season has been quite a memorable one. We head into the final eight rounds with Chelsea the table topers, the battle for fourth being as close as it ever has been and the relegation battle still firmly neck-and-neck. But while this season has been one for excitement and entertainment from all 20 teams as it always is, it is the race for Premier League Player of the Year that which is rather more difficult to pin down this year In the previous two years, we seem to have had obvious winners in…

    Yes, you read that score right… SIX – ONE! Perhaps the most embarrassing and heavy defeat this season and a costly one – costing us qualification for the Europa league, leaving us in 6th place with no European games to play whatsoever next season. Tottenham took 5th, managing to win their game against our Merseyside rivals Everton on the final day of the Premier League season. This was the first time in 52 years that Liverpool had let in six goals in a league game. These kind of records are not the ones we want, really and it’s not the first time this season that…

    Recently, Liverpool played their last home game against Crystal Palace. We actually lost the game but it was still an amazing fixture and even if we had drawn or won it would not have been the result that mattered most. It was not just Liverpool’s last game at Anfield of the season, but also Steven Gerrard’s last game at Anfield. His chance to say goodbye to the fans. His chance for letting the fans know how much he has appreciated their support over the 17 years he’s been a part of the first team. This was a chance that some players never get before they leave the club,…

Well Crystal Palace scored 3 goals on both occasions, but sadly while last time it ended a draw, this time we could only manage a single goal against them. Yes, on the day when Liverpool fans around the world thought that it would a victorious end to Gerrard’s Anfield career, it ended in a defeat.

    United 1 – Arsenal 1.  The final home game of the season against Arsenal then. Time to meet up with everyone for a few pre-match drinks down The Gorse pub. It’s been our regular drinking spot before a game for many a year now. We don’t all get there as often as we like these days, due to changing situations in all our lives.

    Palace 1 – United 2.  Before the game my question was, which Crystal Palace side would turn up today? More to the point, which Alan Pardew side would turn up? In his recent Newcastle United management days his teams could go on regular small winning runs of three, maybe four games. Then not win or even pick up a point for a few games, it’s the same with Palace now. Then I had to wonder about United and the possibility of four straight defeats. Turns out both teams turned up and gave it a go but it was very cagey for most of the first half. In United’s last three game…

Both the United and West Brom fans paid their respects five minutes into the match with a few minutes of applause. Along with echoes of “Rio Rio” being heard from all four corners of the ground.

    Everton 3 – United 0.  Did the United players go into yesterday’s game believing they’d already secured Champions League qualification? After the performance I saw and what Louis van Gaal said in his post-match press conference, we may be lead to believe that they did. If that is the case then they’re wrong. Yes Liverpool drew away at West Brom on Saturday but with them having a game in hand still, all is to play for in my opinion. After recent good performances United may feel that’s it’s job done and they can take the foot off the gas, but that clearly…

  • Player Ratings: Final Vote of the Year from Insignificant Clash

    25 May 2015 | 4:25 am
    Yet another season of disappointment, heartbreak, managerial sackings, derby victories and dramatic escapes drew to a close at Stamford Bridge on Sunday. Much like last year's finale against Swansea, Sunderland were to peak in midweek, succumbing to a 3-1 defeat in the final fixture. Still, it proved a decent run out from Dick Advocaat's men, in a clash that had minimal significance. So, for the last time this season, it's now your chance to have your say and rate the players.[[content.top]]Remember, votes are locked in once cast, so take care when selecting.
